Design Rationale

  • The i9-13900K gave the customer a great amount of single-core performance for modeling and gaming, 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.
  • The customer wanted at least 64GB of RAM, and didn’t want last-gen tech. 128GB is an easy upgrade
  • The customer was fine with our default storage setup.
  • The customer was fine with our recommended video card
  • The overall design of the build meant that a 1200W power supply was recommended.
  • We used our default mid-tower case to fit the build.
  • We used our high-end RGB fans to ensure proper airflow and static pressure.
