  • 14 years with Puget Systems

William’s love for computers began when he was four years old. An internship at Disney World and experience in retail electronics sales helped him hone his customer service skills. William’s career with Puget Systems began in 2005 in Inventory and Assembly. He worked in Sales and Consulting for nine years, helping customers configure and purchase their systems. In 2017, William moved into Labs, where he researches the applications our customers use, testing them on various types of computer hardware, and publishing articles and system recommendations. William loves the Puget Systems work environment and says there is no where else he’d rather be.

    This drive is very similar in performance and rated endurance to Samsung's 970 EVO Plus line, making it a great alternative to those drives. The controller and NAND memory are made in-house by Western Digital & Sandisk.

  • Asetek 650LX Thick 120mm CPU Cooler picture
    William George (Puget Labs Technician) Says:
    As AIO coolers go, this is a nice one - but I still prefer heatsink & fan combinations for most systems. They can be even quieter than these liquid-cooling units, with fewer failure points (no pump, no leaks) and easier fan replacement if one fails.
  • AMD Ryzen Threadripper 3990X 2.9GHz 64 Core 280W picture
    William George (Puget Labs Technician) Says:
    Because of its massive thread count (64 cores x 2 threads per core via SMT = 128 threads) it is recommended to use Windows 10 Pro for Workstations with this processor. The normal version of Windows 10 Pro splits up processors with >64 threads in ways which some applications cannot recognize, potentially limiting real-world performance.
  • Noctua NH-U14S TR4-SP3 picture
    William George (Puget Labs Technician) Says:
    Noctua fans and heatsinks are of the highest quality, and extremely quiet (at least the band-aid colored ones). This particular model is designed to work with AMD's Threadripper processors, and is much quieter than the close-loop coolers we've used for that platform in the past. It is also very large, to the point that it could block the top PCI-Express slot on some motherboards - but we only use it in configurations where that won't be a problem.
  • EVGA SuperNOVA 1300W G2 Power Supply picture
    William George (Puget Labs Technician) Says:
    The cabling used by this power supply is the same as most other SuperNOVA models, making it relatively easy to replace a failed PSU or upgrade to a higher wattage later on if needed.

    The cabling used by this power supply is the same as most other SuperNOVA models, making it relatively easy to replace a failed PSU or upgrade to a higher wattage later on if needed. Beware of the size of this unit, though: it is quite large! The one reason for such a high-wattage PSU is supporting 4 video cards and/or dual CPUs, though, either of which will necessitate a fairly large chassis to begin with.
