    Go to Free Build from the main menu and go to inventory and pick up the case Thermaltake View 91 RGB, put it on a workbench and start picking up parts. Here's a step-by-step path to building the PC:

    1. Open the panel and remove the 6 drive bays and the bay cover
    2. Remove the fan from the rear and install a EKWB EK-CoolStream SE 120 RGB (or non-RGB if you want) radiator there
    3. Remove the front panel, the dust filter and the 3 fans from the front
    4. Install two EKWB EK-CoolStream SE 120 RGB (or non-RGB if you want) radiators to the front panel like shown in the picture
    5. Remove the top panel and dust filter
    6. Install two EKWB EK-CoolStream SE 120 RGB (or non-RGB if you want) radiators to the top panel like shown in the picture
    7. Install a CORSAIR AX1600i power supply
    8. Install a ASUS ROG Strix X399-E Gaming motherboard
    9. Install a AMD Ryzen Threadripper 2990WX processor and apply thermal paste to it
    10. Install a EKWB EK-Supremacy sTR4 RGB - Nickel cpu block or any other block that fits TR4 socket
    11. Install eight G.SKILL Trident Z RGB 16 GB 3866 MHz RAM sticks
    12. Open the M2 Drive Bay on the motherboard (it's to the right of the PCI-E slots) and install a CORSAIR Force Series - MP500 960GB M.2 storage there and close the bay
    13. Install a EKWB EK-XRES 140 Revo D5 RGB reservoir (or any other) like shown in the picture
    14. Remove the PCI covers and install two AORUS GeForce RTX 2080 Ti EXTREME WATERFORCE WB graphics cards like shown in the picture
    15. Choose Piping (number 4 on keyboard) and connect the parts like shown in the picture (you can choose any tubing and fittings)
    16. Add Coolant from Inventory > Custom Water Cooling > Coolant. You can choose any. Click on the reservoir to fill the loop
    17. Add two Antec Prizm 120 ARGB (or any other) fans to the bottom of the case like shown in the picture
    18. Turn the case around and remove the bottom fan cover
    19. Install three Seagate BarraCuda 4TB 256MB Cache storages like shown in the second picture
    20. Install four more fans (I used CORSAIR HD120 RGB LED) above the HDDs like shown in the second picture (you need to remove the top fan cover first and then remove the bay covers to make room for the fans and then put the fan cover back)

    NOTE: You can find removed case parts from Install > PC Parts

    We are now above $10,000. Put all the removed case parts back (dust filters and panels) and attach a USB stick to the PC and power it up (Tools and software > USB drive).
    You should get both this and the $10,000 achievement after the PC boots to the OS.

    This is just an example build you can make and you are free to build yours how you want.
    This is NOT a good build for real life (no PC needs 5 radiators) so please don't take it as such. This is just a quick way to build a PC for the achievements.

    This can be done in Career or in Free Build (which can be accessed immediately after starting the game from the Main Menu). There's only a few cases that you can fit 5 radiators into. The easiest one IMO is the Thermaltake View 91. Stick with the 120mm rads.

    The achievement will only pop once the PC is fully assembled and the removed case parts are put back into place. After adding 5+ radiators (the Thermaltake View 91 can fit 6 or 7), make sure you add in both a reservoir and either a CPU block or GPU block.
    Next, go to tubing and connect the reservoir to each rad, remembering to bring the tubing through the CPU and/or GPU block along the way. The flexible tubing is easiest since they'll connect automatically and other parts won't get in the way.
    After getting the tubing set up, make sure you pick a coolant and then click on the reservoir and wait as the coolant gets filled up through all of the rads.

    After you've added all necessary parts (including the rest of the PC, like RAM, PSU, etc), connect your cables (or tick off the option to do quick-cabling if available) and turn the PC on. I'm unsure if you need to attach a USB stick to boot to OS, but I did just to be safe.

    Once the PC boots, the achievement will pop.
