1 out of 5 eggsRMA Complete - NO CHANGE

Pros: -High end components
-Boots fast

Cons: -Motherboard doesn't actually support CPU
-Setting BIOS to "load optimized presets'" caused looping BSOD while trying to boot. Had to reinstall Windows.

Other Thoughts: So, I recently RMA'd this unit because I was under suspicion that the GPU was bad (it had a visibly warped piece). A rush was placed on it since I'd only had the unit for a few days, and the tech theorized that the CPU may be the culprit as he currently had several different model machines all with the FX-9590. It took a phone call and about a month to get my unit back.

Nothing was provided in terms of what was done for diagnostics or repairs. I've never RMA'd anything before and find this to make no sense. I'd like to see what was actually determined to be the issue, and what was done to my unit. Anyway, I was happy to get the unit back a few days ago, BUT......

I still have ALL of the issues I had before, except for random system lockups. I still cannot play any games for more than about 5 minutes before the framerate starts dropping. I started doing some research into the motherboard (My unit reports it as 970A-D3P, not 970A-UD3 as answered in the Q&A for this product), and have discovered that it does not even officially support the FX-9590 CPU, or any 9000 series CPU for that matter. The 970A-UD3 also doesn't support it. Further reading suggests that there are safeguards in place where the CPU will throttle if it reaches a certain temperature, in this case around 45c.

That's fine and all, but the dang unit already idles at that for me, or higher. So not only does this machine use a CPU the motherboard doesn't even officially support, the cooling solution in place doesn't seem to be up to the task in the first place.

I'm about to demand a refund. Buyer beware.

4 out of 5 eggsAfter a Week Review

Pros: -PC Remained Very High FPS
-The available Inputs are nice was able to do Optical for audio ( and Bluetooth )
-From cold starts up with everything loaded in 17 seconds flat.
-Customer service from IBUYPOWER is very fast

Cons: -PC started to freeze after 15 mins of gameing ( Fix was to lower CPU power to 95% at 4.5 GHZ vice 4.7 via CCC ) Could be a faulty Power supply.
- PC was shutdown to do cable management was would not start. No power at all until the next day most likely cause for my issues is faulty power supply and currently in IBUYPOWER CS to get replacement.

Other Thoughts: Overall i gave this item a change from 5 to 4 egg due to the minor issues i been having but with the warranty will hopefully get fixed and this review will be updated. Also this item for me was a open Box so i been doing stress tests on the PC to ensure it is in peak working order.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat PC

Pros: Very fast PC i cant get a game i cant run at Max Graphics. Arma 2 (102 FPS ) War Thunder (135 FPS) Arma 3 ( 98FPS ) Warframe (135 FPS ).. Computer is Very quiet and all games played was run at Max settings. Also did Temp check while uder idle and high load GPU was 35-80 C and CPU was 40 -55C well in the cool ranges, I am very happy with my purchase.

Cons: PC froze under high loads 3 times but could be due to the new factor and not having all updates. after day 1 not one freeze.
Also had to configure and assign SATA drive so i can store things on.
Had to re seat most cables some were loose but could be due to shipping.
PC was Open Box only Minor scratch on case ( but that is nothing )

1 out of 5 eggsNot happy at all; poor performance/faulty hardware

Pros: Fairly quiet
Easy to see inside case/lots of space

Cons: Myriad of issues for gaming.
Constant stuttering in most games tried regardless of settings.
TERRIBLE ghosting and screen tearing on a monitor that had none prior to hooking this PC up to it.

-Mouse feels quite small

Other Thoughts: I'm going to have to guess that the GPU on this thing is faulty. It runs Dark Souls 2 perfectly and keeps it at 60fps, but it can't even maintain 60fps in Far Cry 3 in Direct X 9 mode on Medium settings. It doesn't make any sense, and in the few days I've been using this machine, I've begun to get progressively worse screen tearing and ghosting outside of video games, particularly while browsing in Firefox or just simply dragging a window around in circles.

VERY UNHAPPY FOR THE PRICE. I was hesitant to purchase this in the first place, and it seems I was right in feeling that way. Will be submitting a return/refund request shortly.

5 out of 5 eggsRMA Complete: Computer is Magnificent

Pros: The computer runs incredibly silent even when under stress. It handles itself magnificently when dealing with modern games on the highest of settings.

I have been able to play Arkham Origins, a very recent game, on ultimate settings without a single problem.

The case looks beautiful.
I ran a 3DMark benchmark test known as Fire Strike, and the computer scored a little under 8000, and earned the "Brawn" Steam acheivement which stated that the graphics card was good to go but that the CPU was holding it back a bit. I have researched this acheivement and it is very common and not worrying.

It scores a 7.8 - 7.9 on every category on a Windows Experience Index which is nice.

Cons: I have previously reviewed this product with a 1 egg due to a faulty GPU and old hard drive, but the RMA was taken care of fairly quickly and the product arrived and is performing well.

The hard drive, however, with the replacement computer that I got was not connected, so It caused a bit of a panic until I connected it.

Other Thoughts: For those wondering who manufactures the components: Gigabyte manufactures the GPU and I think also the motherboard.

1 out of 5 eggsFaulty Graphics Card and Someone Else's Files were present..

Pros: Looks beautiful, runs very quiet.

Cons: The GPU was faulty.
The Computer looked as though it was pre-owned prior to me, as there were games installed, someone else had left Steam with their log-in present, and the hard drive, not the SSD, contained very weird files regarding movie characters and what appeared to be an attempt at a poem.

Other Thoughts: I have sent this computer to be replaced and expect it to be magnificent if the computer that I get has a GPU that performs at it's default settings, and if the hard drive does not contain someone else's attempts at a writing career.

I will re-review this product once my RMA is completed.
