PC Build of the week – AMD 7950X & RTX 4090 Custom EKWB Water-cooled PC

An incredible build with a complete custom-loop water-cooling setup by EKWB.

The complete list of components can be found below, as can a video and image gallery of the build.

So what do we have here then!? This PC was requested by a game developer who required the most up-to-date and powerful hardware, with very particular requirements for appearance. So with an AMD Ryzen 7950X processor (16-cores of goodness there) and the NVIDIA RTX 4090 graphics card, it packs all the power needed, and in fact all the power you can currently buy on a consumer-grade system.

The graphics card chosen is the MSI Suprim X, which is one of the premium offerings of the RTX 4090 on the market. In standard guise with its triple cooling fans and massive heatsink, it’s a fabulous GPU, but with an EKWB water block – especially one with an active backplate – we are talking about the best possible configuration for getting the most NVIDIA 4090 performance.

Other components of note are the G.Skill Trident Z5 NEO, which has great compatibility with the Ryzen CPU and Motherboard on the DDR5 platform in 64GB, with its 6000MHz speed. Currently, DDR5 can be a bit dicey, so it’s good to see how stable these G.Skill modules are.

Great experience, great machine way beyond what I would have built for myself. Great support from initial email to delivery and after. I worried going for a company I had never heard of, but glad I did.

So the time come for me to upgrade my PC (it had served me well for many years), this time I really wanted to go all out on a compact, high spec custom Gaming PC. After doing lots of searching around, I came across CREATE PC's who were local to me. Going through their positive reviews & seeing the builds they had created via their social media pages I was impressed. From the start, communication was just superb, they listened to what I wanted the PC for, how to look, and the budget I had in mind. They came back right away with few options & I knew I had defiantly made the right choice as it was spot on. I decided to go ahead, through the build process I was kept updated & even when I asked more questions on couple of things, they were explained nice & simple for me (I'm not too clued up on technical stuff). PC was built in no time & delivered personally by them to my front door in time for the Christmas break. I was blown away, it performs quality & looks exactly how I wanted it to. I would highly recommend Create PC's & I will defiantly be using in the future.

I contacted create pcs about upgrading my pc and also seeing what advice they could give me to get better performance. Shiv and the team highlighted everything that they found. Throughout the whole time of create pc having my computer they kept me informed. Everything they done was perfect and now my pc looks amazing and now I’m getting a much better performance. If you’re looking to get a pc or upgrades this is the place to go. Very pleased and will be returning in the future.

In a short, 10-day period, I submitted my spec for a high-end desktop pc; agreed to a slight spec revision and took delivery of my new computer. Throughout, communication was excellent. I am delighted with the pc. Sadly a spell of ill-health delayed setting up the system but I am now making good progress on it. Thankyou for delivering the product that I specced.
