Design Rationale

  • The Ryzen 9 5900X 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, we integrated a 420mm+240mm custom loop. This was applied to the GPU as well.
  • The customer wanted a specific motherboard.
  • The customer wanted at least 64GB of RAM, 128GB was an easy upgrade.
  • The customer was mostly fine with our default storage setup, upgrading the main drive from 1TB to 2TB.
  • We recommended the RTX 3090 for gaming performance.
  • While the overall design of the build meant that a 850W power supply was recommended, the customer preferred a 1000W unit.
  • The customer requested a specific case.
  • We used our default fans to ensure proper airflow and static pressure.

Customer Review

“As a service member and someone who was forward deployed when first contacting Top Flight Computers, I can’t put into words how hard they worked and how professional they were when it came to dealing with me being deployed.

I highly recommend and do so daily to any individual looking for a computer no matter the price.”
