Design Rationale

  • The Ryzen 9 5900X 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 a good amount of desktop functionality.
  • The customer wanted at least 32GB of RAM, RGB as well.
  • We used the existing storage setup.
  • We recommended the RTX 3090 for gaming performance.
  • The overall design of the build meant that a 1000W power supply was recommended.
  • We used our high-visibility full-tower case to fit the build.
  • We used our high-end RGB fans to ensure proper airflow and static pressure.
