Design Rationale

  • The i9-13900K gave the customer a great amount of single-core performance for 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 to max out the build with 128GB of RAM, and didn’t want last-gen tech.
  • The customer requested upgrading the boot drive from 512GB to 1TB, no change to the 1TB main drive.
  • The customer wanted to max out the build with an RTX 4090.
  • The overall design of the build meant that a 1200W power supply was recommended.
  • We used a bigger mid-tower case to fit the RTX 4090.
  • We used our highest-performing fans to ensure proper airflow and static pressure.
