Design Rationale

  • The i9-13900K gave the customer a great amount of single-core performance for editing and gaming, 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. Black accents were desired.
  • The customer wanted at least 64GB of RAM, and wanted something that would last another 5 years. The customer wanted RGB accents.
  • The customer agreed with our recommended storage setup.
  • To best power the 4K/240hz display for iRacing, and fit in the customers budget, we recommended the RTX 4080 Super.
  • The overall design of the build meant that a 1200W power supply was recommended.
  • We used our bigger mid-tower case to fit the build.
  • We used our high-end RGB fans to ensure proper airflow and static pressure.
  • The customer wanted colored PSU cables for accents.
