Design Rationale

  • The Ryzen 9 3950X 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, liquid cooling with a 360mm AIO is recommended.
  • The customer wanted a stable motherboard with functionality for 2 internal capture cards.
  • The customer wanted at least 32GB of RAM. 64GB is an easy upgrade.
  • The customer was fine with our default storage setup.
  • For good overall performance in gaming+streaming, we recommended the RTX 2080 Super.
  • The overall design of the build meant that a 850W power supply was recommended.
  • We used a bigger mid-tower case to fit the build.
  • We used our default fans to ensure proper airflow and static pressure.

Customer Review

“Have you ever been to a Disney Park? Have you ever left the park feeling like you just had the best experience ever? The food was perfect, the park staff was polite, the rides were a blast…well that’s how I felt during the entire experience at Top Flight Computers.

Chris and the entire staff were helpful, intelligent, and educated me through the entire process. I knew that working with this team was the right move.

In the end, we have a crazy capable computer that offers the highest quality experience for our streaming purposes. #TeamROUSH”
