Design Rationale

  • The Ryzen 5 5600X 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, air cooling with a single-tower cooler is recommended.
  • The customer wanted a stable motherboard with a good amount of desktop functionality and Thunderbolt support.
  • The customer wanted at least 64GB of RAM, 128GB was an easy upgrade.
  • The customer requested a 1TB NVME OS drive and 2TB HDD bulk storage drive.
  • We recommended the RTX 3070 for gaming and editing performance.
  • The overall design of the build meant that a 850W power supply was recommended.
  • We used our default mid-tower case to fit the build.
  • We used our default fans to ensure proper airflow and static pressure.
