3 out of 5 eggsCooling pump failed

Pros: Worked amazingly well for the first week or so

Cons: After about a week, I received a message on start-up that there was a CPU Fan Failure. The tech I spoke with told me to swap the CPU fan and the Chassis fan leads, which didn't make sense to me - the boot-up error went away, but I decided to install Fan Xpert 2 just to monitor it. Sure enough, the CPU was still overheating. After speaking with a different tech, and spending about an hour more troubleshooting it, we decided the cooling pump was bad. So back it goes

Other Thoughts: I am still confused as to why the machine started to overheat after a week. The second tech I spoke with said that if the pump failed completely, then the CPU would be reaching higher temperatures faster. So this is all a mystery to me, and I am concerned that this is a problem endemic to this system. I will be sure to install Fan Xpert as soon as I receive my second box and monitor the temperatures closely. Overall, I am happy with the response from iBuyPower and Newegg, I am just a little concerned about this issue, and whether or not I will be deailing with it again in the future (after the 30 days and the warranty have passed)

1 out of 5 eggsA lot of wasted money

Pros: Ran great for the 7 weeks that it worked.

Cons: Used this computer for Arma2 and Teamspeak. Nothing else.

Turned my computer on one day. Ran for about 3-4 minutes and then shut off. Tried pressing the power button again. Nothing...no beeps, no post, no fan spins, nothing....

After calling Ibuypower's tech support, and talking to a tech who would randomly leave the phone without saying anything..., I was told that it was a hardware issue and to call NewEgg. NewEgg told me that the warranty I paid extra for, was through ServiceNet and to call them. After speaking with ServiceNet, I was told my warranty with them wouldn't be active until the manufacturer's warranty expired. Fair enough...

Called Ibuypower back again. Followed the steps to get an RMA #. Then I find out I have to pay over $100 in shipping so they can fix the computer. Really?!? Wish I would've known that before I even considered to purchase their product.

Learned my lesson

Absolutely ridiculous....

Other Thoughts: Always try to take care of my electronics. The computer is never left on for periods of no use. I always monitor my temps to make sure everything is where it should be. Ran great when it worked.

5 out of 5 eggsLove It.

Pros: They really did not skimp on any of the hardware in this beast. The 8gb ram is 1866, i5 3570k, good asus z77 mobo and the beautiful EVGA gtx 670 FTW!!

Cons: The front usb headers came unplugged during shipping,, or were never plugged in,, either way I plugged it in and everything works amazing!

Other Thoughts: This is The Best PC I have ever owned. I upgraded the PSU, which wasn't needed as is. added another 670ftw, loaded it with fans and I have one fine piece of computer here.

5 out of 5 eggsGood value

Pros: Very sturdily built, comes with an SLI bridge and startup manuals that are very helpful. This rig is primed for upgrades out of the box, i imagine i will have it for years to come since the motherboard is above average for this price range.

Plays games quite well, you can get 60+fps on Battlefield 3 no problem (1080p ultra) even with Vsync enabled.

Cons: the Case itself is gigantic, it makes it good for cooling but heavier than any other PC i have come across. Only a con if planning to take to LAN parties or other movement.

Other Thoughts: Just arrived today and felt implied to write this review. This is such a better quality system than my previous purchase from newegg, i have not called IBuyPower tech support yet but i hope i never have to.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Machine for the Price

Pros: This machine had all of the parts that I wanted. I was picking parts for my next build and stumbled upon this machine. The cost to buy it ended up being roughly the same as building it myself, a no brainier for a busy tech geek, such as myself.

This is the perfect machine that I can grow into.

Handles high end games quite well along with large files. I use this machine both for personal and professional use.

Cons: The case was a bit bigger than expected.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome

Pros: Bought this baby on Wednesday morning and it showed up the next day. Plugged it in, downloaded BF3 and played seamlessly on full resolution Ultra settings.

Don't be deterred by the orange paint job, it actually looks pretty cool. Case is HUGE and spacious.

Has a finely grated top that you can see down into. Saw the GTX 670 2GB card staring back up at me and smiled.

10/10 would buy again

Cons: Nothing yet, will come back if something goes wrong.

5 out of 5 eggs2nd iBuy

Pros: Runs incredibly quite and cool. Several pros based on hardware the used. Got it at a very nice price compared to what a build of same quality would be(for now, I'm sure prices will change in the near future).

Cons: I really don't like the case, I knew I wouldn't before purchasing but the case was none of my concern. I would have rather had the front USB/Headphone in the front not on top but that is a non-issue.

Other Thoughts: For what it was priced at time of purchase compared to the price of the build I feel it was a great buy. This is the second pre-built tower I have purchased from iBuy through Newegg and I have been completely satisfied with both purchases. Says core i7 on the front of the case but it definitely has a core i5 3570k.
