Design Rationale

  • The i7-14700K gave the customer a great amount of single-core performance for general use, and multicore performance for heavily-threaded tasks.
  • To ensure the CPU runs at full speed, air cooling with dual-tower cooler is recommended. The customer preferred liquid cooling with a 420mm AIO.
  • The customer wanted a stable motherboard with a good amount of desktop functionality and 10G networking.
  • The customer wanted at least 64GB of RAM.
  • The customer requested a 1TB NVME for OS and 2x4TB SSD RAID0 for main storage.
  • The customer requested an RTX 4080 for VRAM. The RTX 4090 was considered, but not needed for this particular build.
  • The overall design of the build meant that a 1200W power supply was recommended.
  • We used our bigger mid-tower case to fit the build.
  • We used our highest-end fans to ensure proper airflow and static pressure.
  • The customer requested a VR headset be included in the order.
