Design Rationale

  • The Ryzen 5 1600 gave the customer a good 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. Liquid cooling was preferred by the customer for visual appeal.
  • The customer wanted a stable motherboard with a good amount of desktop functionality.
  • The customer wanted at least 16GB of RAM, 32GB was an easy upgrade.
  • The customer was fine with our default storage setup.
  • The customer was fine with our recommended video card.
  • The overall design of the build meant that a 650W power supply was recommended.
  • We used a special mid-tower case to fit the build.
  • The customer requested specific fans for visual appeal.

Customer Review

“I’ve known the owner personally and only recently had both the resources and need for a new PC. It was an easy decision to go with Top Flight Computers for getting the gaming and graphic design rig I’ve wanted for years.

I remember when Chris first started talking about his business idea when we met in college and seeing him over the years make his idea into reality has been inspirational. With his incredible work ethic, attention to detail, frequent communication and superior customer service he provides a great service and product.

Chris knows his stuff, and will find you the best parts at the best price (in my case finding a GPU at the height of their demand for cryptocurrency) for your build, and work with you through the entire process. He understood my desire for not only a top performing 1080p gaming computer, but also an aesthetically pleasing one, even incorporating some of my own custom artwork into the final product.

I would recommend him to anyone looking for a custom build. He will really listen and go above and beyond for you!

My PC arrived in Connecticut safe and well packed. Scarlet Wolf looks fantastic on my desk!”
