Pros: Overclocks real nice, night and day at running games over my AMD. $100 less than the devils canyon i7
Cons: Stock fan
Other Thoughts: Great for gamers who overclock, spent $239 on this, carried over my zalman (30 bux) from my AMD build. Paired with a gigabyte MOBO. Used Artic silver paste (5 bux). I overclocked it to 4.5ghz and ran it hard for hours. Temps stayed in the 40s. Ran it to 5ghz, just needed a box fan to run some air into the PC closet while doing this Temps hit mid 50s sometimes before box fan. If this Tower wasn't stuffed in a tiny closet and in an air conditioned room, 5ghz without anymore assistance is easy to achieve.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Overall Specs, Keyboard lights, Screen looks nice, price, external appearance, gaming performance. Runs any game out there and looks good doing it. Price is great. I got the 2 year warranty as well.
Cons: Its Huge, Heavy, (buy a 19inch laptop bag not a 17 or 17.3) 5400rpm HD, video card needs VBIOS update to fix the grey screens that happen while gaming. This will fix overheating issues as well. My gpu now runs 70c-75c in turbo, cpu runs 55c in turbo after hours of slamming it. Update the system bios. Bloatware, needs clean install of OS.
Other Thoughts: If you know a few things about fixing the listed cons above as it did, then you got an awsome deal and you will love it. If you dont have any tech skills or just want to open the package and start gaming, look elsewhere. The fixes are not hard, there are videos on how to do it with software made easy. Roll up your sleeves and save some money or pay the premium for another system of = specs. Dont compare it to a desktop that costs the same to build yourself.READ FULL REVIEW
