Design Rationale

  • The i7-13700K gave the customer a great amount of single-core performance for gaming and editing, 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 a good amount of desktop functionality.
  • The customer wanted at least 32GB of RAM, and didn’t want last-gen tech.
  • The customer was fine with our default storage setup.
  • We recommended the RTX 3070Ti for gaming and editing performance for the budget.
  • The overall design of the build meant that a 850W power supply was recommended.
  • We used our default mid-tower case to fit the build, customer requested a white model.
  • We used our high-end RGB fans to ensure proper airflow and static pressure, customer requested a white model.

Customer Review

It took me a while to finally have the time to write a review but that also allowed me time to get to use my new PC built by Top Flight Computers!

Chris was very responsive and helpful throughout the whole process, and I can confidently say that I am in love with my new PC!! She is the cutest and the most quiet PC I have ever owned.

She literally sits right next to my monitor on the desk and I have yet to hear a single fanning sound from this masterpiece. Not only that, she can handle all the heavy files I run on her. (Also in love with the lights. Yes, she is the cutest PC I’ll ever own.)

Would highly recommend Chris to anyone who is looking to get a PC and is as lost as I am with the technicality in actually building one lol. Will be definitely returning to him if I ever need an upgrade or further need for devices. Thank you Chris!
