Design Rationale

  • The i9-13900K gave the customer a great amount of single-core performance for lightly-threaded tasks, 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.
  • After a conversation about memory available, the customer opted for 2x48GB of DDR5. Adding 2 more sticks for 192GB overall was an easy upgrade in the future.
  • The customer requested a 512GB Gen4 NVME for OS+programs, a 1TB Gen4 NVME for main storage, and a 4TB SSD for backup.
  • We recommended an RTX 4070Ti for general performance, decent VRAM, and low cost.
  • While the overall design of the build meant that an 850W power supply was needed, we recommended a 1200W to allow for an easy upgrade to a more powerful GPU in the future.
  • We used our bigger mid-tower case to fit the build.
  • We used our highest-end fans to ensure proper airflow and static pressure.
