Design Rationale

  • The i9-13900K gave the customer a great amount of single-core performance for editing, and multicore performance for heavily-threaded tasks.
  • To ensure the CPU runs at full speed, liquid cooling with a 360mm liquid cooler is recommended.
  • The customer wanted a stable motherboard with a good amount of desktop functionality.
  • The customer agreed with our recommendation to start with 64GB of RAM, 96GB+ was an easy upgrade.
  • The customer was fine with our default storage setup.
  • As we weren’t sure how well the software used the GPU, we recommended starting with an RTX 4070 Super.
  • The overall design of the build meant that a 1000W power supply was recommended.
  • We used our normal mid-tower case to fit the build.
  • We used our highest-end fans to ensure proper airflow and static pressure.
