CyberpowerPC Desktop PC Gamer Xtreme H500 Intel Core i7 4770K (3.50 GHz) 16 GB DDR3 2TB HDD + 250GB SSD HDD Windows 8 64-Bit
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: less than 1 day

Pros: Runs quiet. Was wrong about criticizing CyberpowerPC for short sheeting the GPU. After rechecking it is a GTX 780 3 GB as advertised. Sorry CyberpowerPC for the plunder on my part.

Cons: The cabinet was not the one illustrated and thought the CPU cooling was to be liquid cooled. However it is the CPU stock cooling fan, which appears to be adequate.

Other Thoughts: Do not rely on the advertising pictures. Review each item separately to ascertain that the parts are what you believe them to be.

Pros: Runs very quiet and parts quality are ok.

Cons: What I received is not what I ordered or at least what was provided in the pictures and product description What I ordered was the case appearing in the illustration, assuming it is the Thermaltake Urban S21 Gaming Case, what I received was a much cheaper case w/ out easy hd and optical drive installation enhancements. The CPU was advertised as being liquid cooled, what I received was the stock cooling fan. The biggest disappointment was the GPU. It was advertised as a GeForce GTX 780 3 GB. What I received was a 780 1 GB version.

Other Thoughts: Really disappointed when I opened the box to inspect the computer and found that it was less that what I had ordered. The more expensive, advertised parts may be the reason why this PC is no longer sold, because it was a loss item. But really not my problem. If it wasn't in stock, I should have been told and given the opportunity to select a replacement item or cancel the order. I also contacted the manufactures live chat, but I all I have received after waiting for over 30 minutes is that the operator is assisting others. One has to wonder why the long wait for customer assistance?

CORSAIR Hydro Series H100 (CWCH100) Extreme Performance Liquid CPU Cooler
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Really quieted down the machine when compared to the noise emitted from the OEM cooling fan. It's cooling ability really helped to stablize the PC performance. Under heavy load without overclocking the system would become unstable, when using the OEM cooling fan.

Cons: The installation instructions are meager. However, on the Corsair blog, there is a pretty good instruction on how to install the cooling system. Of course print it out before you install the system.

Other Thoughts: The system is designed to easily install in the Corsair 800D case. This is not saying it will not easily install in other cases. That depends on the case. Reading the blog posting made the installation fairly easy. However, need to do a little plannig before installing the hardware, such as whether you want the fans to be exhaust or intake.
