Te Re-Designed Artifex - Redesigned September '21
The Artifex is Alexander PCs content creation build. We designed this model specifically for those who like to do serious editing work with photos and video. This system is driven by the awesome AMD Ryzen 7 5800X CPU with 8 cores/16 threads that will run at speeds up to 4.7 GHz.
For our redesign, we've upped the ante by adding liquid cooling for the new CPU, and housing the system in the super sleek Lian Li Lancool II Mesh RGB. The overall package is very attractive, and very customizable with lots of lighting options. The mind blowing speeds of PCIe Gen 4 are here as well, with a 1TB Sabrent Rocket 4.0 M.2-2280 NVMe Solid State Drive for the operating system and your editing software, and 32 GB of DDR4 RAM overclocked to 3600MHz. This machine is definitely ready to do battle with your Adobe and similar programs. We add a 2TB HDD for convenient, inexpensive mass storage.
For a GPU, we went with an EVGA GeForce RTX 3060 XC Gaming - we like NVidia’s chipset much better than Radeon for application acceleration, and with a monster 12GB serving of VRAM this one will shred your rendering tasks in record time! As a bonus, the RTX 3060 has serious gaming chops as well for your in-between work time.
Platformed on the rock solid ASUS TUF Gaming B550-PLUS WiFi motherboard, this one is compatible with next-gen hardware for future upgrades, and boasts onboard WiFi 6 for enhanced connectivity.
We power this one with an efficient 650-watt 80-Plus Gold rated power supply unit, and we round out a polished, professional look with sleeved cables extensions in your choice of color.
The Artifex comes with Windows 10 Home 64-bit edition installed and fully updated.
