Design Rationale

  • The i7-12700K 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, and wanted to save some money with last-gen tech.
  • The customer was fine with our default storage setup.
  • We recommended the RTX 3090 for ideal gaming performance.
  • The overall design of the build meant that a 1000W power supply was recommended.
  • We used our default mid-tower case to fit the build.
  • We used our high-end RGB fans to ensure proper airflow and static pressure.

Customer Review

I am the owner of “The Dark Knight” and I’ll tell you Top Flight Computers is amazing.

I am not a computer nerd or geek and just wanted a PC that would be good for gaming. After a short conversation with Chris, we were able to put together a computer under the specifications that I wanted.

4 months later now and I am still in love with my PC everything is running wonderfully, and Chris is still keeping in touch making sure that my experience with my PC is what I expected.

So, if you need a PC with great build quality and a team that will give you amazing customer service, look no further Top Flight Computers is the way to go.
