Design Rationale

  • The i7-13700K 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, liquid cooling with a 360mm AIO is recommended.
  • The customer wanted a stable motherboard with a good amount of desktop functionality.
  • The customer wanted at least 32GB of RAM, and didn’t want last-gen tech.
  • The customer requested twin 2TB NVME drives.
  • We recommended the RTX 3090 for gaming performance.
  • While the overall design of the build meant that a 1000W power supply was recommended, the customer opted for a 1200W for room to upgrade the GPU.
  • We used a bigger mid-tower case to fit the build.
  • We used our high-end RGB fans to ensure proper airflow and static pressure.
