Design Rationale

  • The Ryzen 9 3900X 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, air cooling with a dual-tower cooler is recommended.
  • The customer wanted a stable motherboard with a good amount of desktop functionality.
  • The customer wanted at least 64GB of RAM, 128GB was an easy upgrade.
  • The customer was fine with our default storage setup.
  • The customer was fine with our recommended video card.
  • The overall design of the build meant that a 850W power supply was recommended.
  • We used a bigger mid-tower case to fit the build.
  • We used our default fans to ensure proper airflow and static pressure.

Customer Review

“Chris was not only informative and helpful, but he fashioned all of his communications in a friendly and inviting way.

That level of professionalism erased any doubt of using Top Flight Computers as the company to build my computer, and the quality of that build speaks for itself.

I will definitely reach out to Chris if I ever need another build, though I am sure the one they gave me will last a long time!”
