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 to max out the build with 128GB of RAM, and didn’t want last-gen tech.
  • The customer was fine with our default storage setup.
  • The customer requested an RTX 3090, the workflow determined that a professional-grade GPU wasn’t necessary.
  • The overall design of the build meant that a 1000W power supply was recommended.
  • We used our default mid-tower case to fit the motherboard
  • We used our highest-performing fans to ensure proper airflow and static pressure.
