Design Rationale

  • The i7-8700K 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, air cooling with a single-tower cooler is recommended.
  • The customer wanted a stable motherboard with a good amount of desktop functionality.

  • The customer was fine with a single-drive storage setup.
  • The customer was fine with our recommended video card, also wanting a white model.
  • The overall design of the build meant that a 750W power supply was recommended.
  • The customer requested a specific case for the build.
  • The customer requested specific fans for the build.

Customer Review

“Chris built an awesome computer for my company so that we can use advanced 3D modeling and create fly thru renders in Lumion for our clients.

I cannot express how thankful I am to have met Chris. He and his team did an amazing job helping me figure out what I needed and then delivering this awesome computer that I now have.

They are professional, timely, very communicative, and offered a fabulous value.”
