Design Rationale

  • The Ryzen 9 3900X gave the customer a great amount of single-core performance for gaming and multicore performance for heavily-threaded tasks.
  • To ensure the CPU runs at full speed, air cooling with a dual-tower is recommended. The customer preferred liquid cooling with an RGB 360mm AIO for visual appeal.
  • The customer wanted a stable motherboard with a good amount of desktop functionality.
  • The customer wanted at least 32GB of RAM, with RGB as well.
  • The customer upgraded both drives in our default storage setup, doubling the capacity of both.
  • We recommended the RTX 2080 Super for gaming and streaming performance.
  • The overall design of the build meant that a 850W power supply was recommended.
  • We used a bigger white mid-tower case to fit the build.
  • We used our high-end RGB fans to ensure proper airflow and static pressure.

Customer Review

“Chris and his team are very knowledgeable and also very patient.

I am totally new to computers and was worried someone would take advantage of my lack of knowledge. He explained everything thoroughly and was honest during the entire build.

We are just about a year in with our PC and it is still running wonderfully. I highly recommend Top Flight Computers for all computer related needs.”
