Sudden Storm is a video editing workstation.

General System Design

This build is designed around a 16-core Ryzen 9 5950X processor and an RTX 2080Ti 11GB video card.

Software Workload/Customer Need

This customer needed a powerful new workstation to handle their growing professional workload, also designed for gaming and streaming. He also wanted a computer strong enough to not need major updates for several years.

This customer expressed an interest in the visual appeal of Spectre v3. While not a perfect match for parts, it’s very similar (and we were able to get several parts sponsored by manufacturers).

Design Rationale

  • The Ryzen 9 5950X 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 to max the build out with 128GB of RAM, wanting RGB as well.
  • The customer requested a 1TB NVME OS drive and 2TB NVME main drive.
  • We recommended the RTX 2080Ti for gaming and editing performance.
  • The overall design of the build meant that a 850W 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.

Customer Review

“Chris and the guys went above and beyond when it came to setting me up with a new PC.

Their knowledge is next level and they made sure the build matched my needs. From the detailed cable management to complete OS setup, you can’t help but be impressed by their attention to detail.

If you’re in the market for the perfect rig, look no further than Top Flight Computers.”
