Design Rationale

  • The Xeon W7-2475X gave the customer a great amount of single-core performance for editing, 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 expansion.
  • The customer wanted to start with 256GB of RAM, and didn’t want last-gen tech.
  • The customer was fine with our recommended storage setup.
  • We recommended the RTX A5000 for high general-purpose GPU compute, a large amount of VRAM, controlled power draw, and directed heat dissipation.
  • The overall design of the build meant that a 1200W power supply was recommended.
  • We used our standard rack case to fit the build.
  • We used our highest-end fans to ensure proper airflow and static pressure.
