NZXT’s BLD service has always been unique. They began as a service that asked what you wanted to do - what games do you play, how much do you want to spend – and then offering a custom PC to meet your needs. They’ve recently begun offering a selection of premade systems and their latest, the Creator PC, is so powerful they may as well have named it HAL-9000.

Built inside NZXT’s iconic H510 Elite case, the Creator PC is an absolute beast. It’s designed to help creatives new and old produce content without bottlenecks.

  • Case: NZXT H510 Elite (White or Black)
  • CPU: Intel Core i9 9900k
  • CPU Cooler: NZXT Kraken X62
  • GPU: NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 Ti - ASUS Strix
  • PSU: EVGA SuperNOVA 750W G3
  • Motherboard: NZXT N7 Z390 (White or Black)
  • Ram: Team Group Delta RGB 64GB 3000 MHz (4 x 16GB)
  • SSD: 1TB NVMe SSD with heatsink
  • HDD: 4TB 5400RPM
  • Software: Windows 10 Pro
  • Warranty: 2-year warranty on all parts & labor
  • Price: $3499

That kind of power doesn’t come cheap but NZXT BLD is delivering a computer that’s on the cutting edge for what’s possible in gaming and consumer content creation today. That 9900K is the premiere gaming CPU  at the moment but while most games won’t take advantage of all eight cores/sixteen threads, applications like Adobe Premiere Pro and OBS definitely will.

We also see other nods to its creative intentions here. 64GB of DRAM is absolutely massive, well beyond what any game will utilize, but if you’re working in Adobe After Effects and doing 4K video editing, it’s a big bonus. The speed, on the other hand, isn’t the fastest (though it’s still overclocked) because in that situation it doesn’t need to be. Additionally the 4TB HDD is clearly intended for mass storage of video files instead of gaming based on the 5400 RPM speed rating. The speeds in both cases also help keep costs down.

Regardless of whether you plan to create content or not, NZXT’s BLD PC is beastly and will dominate any game on the market today.

The Creator PC joins NZXT BLD’s two other pre-built options, including the Starter and Streaming configurations. Users who need more can opt for extra storage or even a professional grade ASUS ProArt PA34VC monitor for professional creative work.
