Design Rationale

  • The i7-14700K gave the customer a great amount of single-core performance for lightly-threaded workloads, 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.
  • We recommended 32GB RAM for the particular workflow, 64GB+ is an easy upgrade for the customer to handle.
  • The customer agreed with our dual-drive storage recommendation.
  • While we originally presented an RTX 4080, they ultimately decided on an RTX 4090 for extra power in the future.
  • We recommended a 1200W power supply based on the overall design of the build.
  • We used our bigger mid-tower case to fit the build.
  • We used our highest-end fans to ensure proper airflow and static pressure.

Customer Review

“Wow is all I can say!

I wanted to thank the team at Top Flight Computers and especially Garret with my new PC. It has been a while since I have built my own PC and I have had a stream of bad luck with trying to go with other companies.

I finally arrived with Top Flight Computers to have a great discussion with Garret with my main focus of power and stability with the new setup. We were focusing on a certain budget and Garret supplied me with different options which suited my specific needs.

After we discussed which was the best option, the hardest part of waiting for the PC began!

All I can say is…. The wait is worth it. My new gaming PC (Project Amaterasu) can handle anything right now without missing a beat and without any stuttering. The system runs cool and fast and most importantly to me, stable.

I would not hesitate to recommend this company to my friends and colleagues. Thank you again Garret and Top Flight! I am very happy and satisfied! 🙂”
