Design Rationale

  • The i9-13900K 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, liquid cooling with a 360mm AIO is recommended.
  • The customer wanted a stable motherboard with a good amount of desktop functionality and 10G networking.
  • The customer wanted at least 64GB of RAM, and didn’t want last-gen tech.
  • The customer was fine with our default storage setup.
  • The customer provided an RTX 3080.
  • While the overall design of the build meant that a 1000W power supply was recommended, the customer opted for a 1200W for upgrade room.
  • We used a bigger mid-tower case to fit the build.
  • We used our highest-end fans to ensure proper airflow and static pressure.
