Design Rationale

  • The i7-13700K gave the customer a great amount of single-core performance for modeling and general use, and multicore performance for heavily-threaded tasks.
  • To ensure the CPU runs at full speed, air cooling with a dual-tower cooler is recommended. The customer opted for a 360mm AIO because it was a marginal cost increase.
  • The customer wanted a stable motherboard with a good amount of desktop functionality.
  • The customer wanted at least 64GB of RAM, and didn’t want last-gen tech. 128GB was an easy upgrade for the customer to do.
  • The customer was fine with our default storage setup.
  • The customer was fine with our default video card
  • The overall design of the build meant that an 850W power supply was recommended.
  • We used our default mid-tower case to fit the build.
  • We used our highest-performing fans to ensure proper airflow and static pressure.

Customer Review

“Great customer service! While my build was not at the top end of Top Flight Computers scale, Chris still took the time to understand exactly what I needed.

He gave me multiple estimates with different combinations, and in the end I have a computer that is perfect!

Customer service driven companies are rare, don’t miss your opportunity to work with Top Flight Computers!”
