Pros: Great computer! This computer has a lot of fans and the blue leds really make it look great. The computers cpu stays at about 50C when at %100 load with the fans on high. Defiantly the most powerful computer I have ever purchased. It was a tad pricey but it was well worth the buy. The computer also has a few filters in it to help filter out some of the dust so that's nice. Liquid cooling really works and can drop the cpu temp in a flash. The bays in the front are really cool and super useful for backing up and recovering old hard drives. The computer has a fan under the the cpu to also help cooling and is realty nice. Overall a great computer. There are two switches in the back for the top fans for low high and off which are realty helpful when you car about noise.
Cons: - The computer only came with two sata cables so if you want to put more hard drives in you have to buy more.
Other Thoughts: The system is great I absolutely love this computer despite the cons. I got the computer for my grandfather who plays Everquest (his money). He wanted something powerful so he got this and its great for me when I want to play games. We have a dual screen set up with two full 1080 HD monitors. It works great, however this could be why the graphics card is so hot I'm not sure. I play Starcraft II on ultra settings and it never even blinks. I would suggest this computer to anybody who wants some good power with out the hassle of building.

Pros: New Sandy Bridge i7 2600K CPU- Very overclock friendly CPU, and outperforms almost every other processor out there, without (completely) breaking the bank.
Cons: Pricey.(but parts justify the price.) Cheap power supply. Case may be too large for some(I like it.) Comes with SSD brackets, but the brackets do not match up your SSD with the sata port in the "easy-swap" bays. Easily remedied, but if you plan to use an SSD you won't be able to swap it out as easy as a 3.5" drive. Just a small annoyance.
Other Thoughts: My old desktop recently died, and I saw an Open-box version of this unit for much cheaper than the current retail(which is why I won't be listed as a "verified buyer"), so I impulse bought it despite the risk. I've read many reviews of CyberpowerPC and Ibuypower units arriving and not booting or having broken parts, and even though I figured the chance of this would be greater with an Open-box unit, I went for it anyway. Got lucky I guess. Upon arrival I installed the SSD from my recently deceased desktop to use as a boot drive and did a clean install of windows 7 and formatted the included 2TB 7200rpm drive to use as a storage drive. Everything is running great. I had to ghetto rig the SSD to get it to connect to the sata port in one of the easy swap bays, so if you're planning on installing an SSD, keep that in mind.
