The Legatus - Command The Battlefield
The Legatus is Alexander PCs Flagship Gaming Rig. In the Roman Army, the Legatus commanded the entire legion. And that's exactly what you'll be doing with this one!
As our flagship build, we wanted this one to have all the horsepower and all the RGB. We’re building on an ASUS ROG MAXIMUS Z690 Hero motherboard for this one. Because it's the best! Want specifics? Say no more! This motherboard delivers absolutely everything - insane 20+1 power stages, Dual Thunderbolt 4 support, PCIe 5 compatibility, and onboard WiFi 6E. Not to mention stunning visuals. Of course, you also get access to ASUS' Armoury Crate software with this one so you're always up to date with the latest drivers and firmware with just a couple clicks.
For a GPU, you get your choice of the GeForce RTX 3090 or GeForce RTX 3090 Ti. Any game on the market, good to go at high frame rates for your buttery smooth gaming pleasure. 8K visuals at 60fps available. Yeah, you read that right.
We’ve chosen the Intel core i9-12900K for this one, and to ensure it not only zips along at top speeds and stays frosty but also delivers some epic customization options we offer a choice of three different all-in-one liquid CPU coolers. All these options are proven Tier 1 performance components, so whatever way you decide to go, you're guaranteed to get the Brrrr you need. If you want a customizable LCD or OLED screen to play GIFs or display temps, you can opt for the ASUS ROG Ryujin II 360 or the NZXT Kraken Z73 RGB. If you want to add more RGB that's directly compatible with Razer's RGB lighting software (along with the case lighting that's build into this one) you can opt for the awesome Razer Hanbo Chroma RGB cooler.
Next we took a look at memory. DDR5 has now reached a point where it's broadly available and we have the chance to be super picky here about what we want to use for our flagship build. In a surprise to no one, we've opted for 32GB of the legendary Corsair Dominator Platinum RGB - but in the new DDR5-6200 flavor. Shockingly fast.
Of course we included a PCIe based 2TB Western Digital SN850 Black M.2 NVMe SSD. At speeds of 7000/5300 MB/s read/write it's basically irrationally fast.
This much power requires a lot of... uhh, power. We absolutely do not cut corners on power supplies here at Alexander PCs. So for this machine you get either an ASUS ROG Strix 1000-watt 80+ gold rated, fully modular power supply or an EVGA SuperNOVA 1300-watt 80+ gold rated, fully modular power supply depending on whether you opt for the RTX 3090 or the RTX 3090 Ti.
Speaking of options, we opted for a Lian Li PC-011 Dynamic Razer Edition chassis for this one. It’s the perfect stage to show off the RBG smorgasbord - which we take completely over the top by adding 9 fans of your choice from 4 different leading edge fan options: Lian Li UniFan SL120 or AL120, Corsair iCUE QL120, or Razer Kunai Chroma.
With everything looking so colorful and shiny, stock cables would be a big time party foul, so we add some custom cable extensions - how could we not?
The Legatus comes with Windows 11 Professional edition installed and updated.
