Design Rationale

  • The i5-10600K gave the customer a good amount of single-core performance for modeling and multicore performance for heavily-threaded tasks.
  • To ensure the CPU runs at full speed, air cooling with a single-tower is recommended. Liquid cooling is more powerful, but not necessary.
  • The customer wanted a stable motherboard with a good amount of desktop functionality.
  • The customer wanted at least 32GB of RAM.
  • While we recommended our baseline storage setup, the customer was fine with a single-drive setup.
  • Due to budget constraints, we recommended the RTX 2060 6GB for Lumion. Lumion has since updated their tech and this GPU is quite low on their specs.
  • The overall design of the build meant that a 750W Gold power supply was recommended.
  • We used our mid-tower case to fit the motherboard
  • We used our default case fans to ensure proper airflow and static pressure.
