Design Rationale

  • The i9-12900K gave the customer a great amount of single-core performance for modeling, 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 32GB of RAM, and didn’t want last-gen tech.
  • The customer requested twin 2TB NVME drives.
  • For best stability in CAD software, we recommended a professional-grade video card. The RTX A4000 16GB fit nicely with the long-term plans and budget.
  • 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 highest-end fans to ensure proper airflow and static pressure.
