Design Rationale

  • The Ryzen 7 3800X gave the customer a good amount of single-core performance for gaming, and multicore performance for heavily-threaded tasks.
  • To ensure the CPU runs at full speed, air cooling with at least a single-tower cooler is recommended, dual-tower preferred. Liquid cooling is more powerful, but not necessary.
  • The customer wanted a stable motherboard with a good amount of desktop functionality.
  • The customer wanted at least 32GB of RAM, 64GB was an easy upgrade.
  • The customer was mostly fine with our default storage setup, only adding a 2TB HDD.
  • For solid gaming, streaming, and video editing performance, we recommended the RTX 2070.
  • The overall design of the build meant that a 750W power supply was recommended.
  • We used our default mid-tower case to fit the build.
  • We used our high-end fans to ensure proper airflow and static pressure, RGB was requested for visual appeal.

“The service i have received from Chris and his team at Top Flight Computers has been amazing! The rig they designed and built specifically for me, Bearded Fury, has GREATLY exceeded any and all of my expectations.

It is a BEAST of a machine YET runs super cool and quiet! It is visually beautiful and the attention to detail given during the build is both obvious and second to none. I have been able to greatly increase BOTH the quality and quantity of my workflow!
