Design Rationale

  • The Ryzen 9 7900X gave the customer a great amount of single-core performance for high end gaming, 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 opted for a hard-tube custom loop for visual appeal and increased cooling power.
  • The customer wanted a stable motherboard with a good amount of desktop functionality and high speed memory support.
  • The customer wanted at least 64GB of RAM, didn’t want last-gen tech, wanted very fast memory, and wanted RGB that synced with the rest of the system.
  • We recommended a new 512GB Gen4 NVME for OS.
  • We used the existing RTX 4090 24GB.
  • The overall design of the build meant that a 1200W power supply was recommended.
  • We used a bigger mid-tower case to fit the build.
  • We used RGB fans and secondary pressure fans to ensure proper airflow and static pressure.
