Design Rationale

  • The Threadripper Pro 5995WX gave the customer maximum performance for Unreal Engine 5 development.
  • To ensure the CPU runs at full speed, air cooling with a specific dual-tower cooler is recommended. This particular cooler also requires a specialized case, for the cooler to function.
  • The customer wanted a stable motherboard with a good amount of desktop functionality.
  • The customer wanted at least 512GB of ECC RAM.
  • The customer wanted a 8TB NVME for OS, an 8TB NVME for active work, and an 8TB NVME for bulk storage.
  • The customer requested the RTX 6000 ADA for Unreal performance.
  • The overall design of the build meant that a 1000W power supply was recommended, the customer preferred a 1200W.
  • We used a specialized full-tower case to fit the build.
  • We used our highest-end fans to ensure proper airflow and static pressure.
