Design Rationale

  • The i9-13900K gave the customer a great amount of single-core performance for modeling and gaming, 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 to max the build out with 128GB of RAM, and didn’t want last-gen tech.
  • The customer wanted a 4TB Gen4 NVME boot drive, 4TB Gen4 NVME main drive, and a 10TB hard drive for mass storage.
  • The customer was fine with our recommended video card
  • The overall design of the build meant that a 1000W power supply was recommended.
  • We used a bigger mid-tower case to fit the build.
  • We used our highest-performing fans to ensure proper airflow and static pressure.

Customer Review

“I initially had concerns about the price, but as the saying goes you get what you pay for: quality.

Chris never tried to smoke and mirrors me, or upsell me. I explained what I was looking for and he found it and put it together, ready to go the day I brought it home.

No skimping on the parts, I’ve stress tested everything multiple times and it’s top tier.

If you’re looking for a custom build PC this is the place to go.”
