Design Rationale

  • The i9-13900K gave the customer a great amount of single-core performance for modeling and editing, and multicore performance for heavily-threaded tasks.
  • To ensure the CPU runs at full speed, liquid cooling with a 360mm AIO is recommended.
  • The customer wanted a stable motherboard with a good amount of desktop functionality.
  • The customer wanted at least 64GB of RAM, and didn’t want last-gen tech. 128GB is an easy upgrade.
  • The customer requested a 2TB NVME boot drive and 2TB of storage for secondary. We recommended Gen4 NVME for both drives due to the relative cost/performance.
  • The customer initially wanted at least an RTX 3070Ti, upgrading to the RTX 3090 due to this particular machine doing more GPU-bound work.
  • The overall design of the build meant that a 1000W power supply was recommended.
  • We used our default mid-tower case to fit the motherboard
  • We used our highest-performing fans to ensure proper airflow and static pressure.

Customer Review

“We had a need for a specific model desktop to run software models to be sent to our large metal 3D Printers for our MedTech business and I wanted to ‘buy local’ instead of ordering from a national brand. Top Flight Computers built us a machine that far outpaced our expectations.

Chris’ dedication to ensure everything was perfect from first contact really impressed.

The Top Flight Team made me feel like my order was the only priority they had throughout our build and installation.

Chris reached out several times post sale to ensure the machine was preforming to his expectations.

I’ll definitely purchase from Top Flight again in the future.”
