Design Rationale

  • The Ryzen 9 5900X gave the customer a great amount of single-core performance for gaming and editing, and multicore performance for heavily-threaded tasks.
  • To ensure the CPU runs at full speed, air cooling with a dual-tower cooler is recommended. Liquid cooling with a 360mm AIO is better, but not needed.
  • 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, upgrading the main drive from 1TB to 2TB.
  • We recommended the RTX 3090 for gaming and editing performance.
  • The overall design of the build meant that a 850W power supply was recommended.
  • We used our default mid-tower case to fit the build.
  • We used our default fans to ensure proper airflow and static pressure.

Customer Review

“Great experience with Top Flight!

They walked me through the whole process and delivered a really great product. Would recommend this company to anyone who needs a custom PC.

I’ve been using mine for a week now and could not be happier. 10/10 will definitely be back next time I need a PC.”
