Design Rationale

  • The i9-13900K 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 64GB of RGB RAM, and didn’t want last-gen tech. 128GB is an easy upgrade.
  • The customer wanted to stay with the capacities of drives in previous builds, but they wanted faster drives. We recommended our fastest Gen4 NVME drives.
  • The customer wanted an RTX 4090 for maximum 4K gaming performance.
  • The overall design of the build meant that a 1200W power supply was recommended.
  • We used a bigger mid-tower case to fit the RTX 4090
  • While we recommended using our highest-performing fans to ensure proper airflow and static pressure, the customer wanted RGB models for visual appeal.
