Design Rationale

  • The i7-13700K gave the customer a great amount of single-core performance for 1440p/120hz gaming and multicore performance for heavily-threaded tasks.
  • To ensure the CPU runs at full speed, air cooling with a dual-tower cooler is recommended. The customer preferred liquid cooling with a 360mm AIO for extra cooling power.
  • The customer wanted a stable motherboard with a good amount of desktop functionality.
  • The customer wanted at least 32GB of RAM and didn’t want last-gen tech.
  • The customer elected to integrate a 2TB Gen4 NVME after talking with us.
  • Based on the performance needs and budget, we recommended the RTX 4070Ti 12GB.
  • The overall design of the build meant that a 1000W power supply was recommended.
  • We used a bigger mid-tower case to fit the build and give the customer room to work in.
  • We used our highest-end fans to ensure proper airflow and static pressure.
