Design Rationale

  • The Xeon​ W7-3465X gave the customer a great amount of single-core performance for general use, 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 wanted to have at least 512GB of RAM, and wanted room to easily add more sticks.
  • The customer requested a 1TB Gen4 NVME for OS+programs, 8TB Gen4 NVME for main storage, and 8TB Gen4 NVME for long-term storage.
  • The customer preferred the RTX A6000 for general-purpose GPU compute, and a large amount of VRAM. The RTX A4500 is to be used if the A6000 crashes and an emergency GPU is needed while a replacement A6000 is sourced.
  • The overall design of the build meant that a 1200W power supply was recommended.
  • We used our default full-tower case to fit the build.
  • We used our highest-end fans to ensure proper airflow and static pressure.

Customer Review

“We were searching around for a PC build to help grow our Reality Capture department.

Upon a Linkedin recommendation, we reached out to Chris at Top Flight Computers and couldn’t be happier with the build results.

His knowledge and open conversation about our current needs and future needs helped us to build a machine that we can rely on for years to come.”
