Pros: ***UPDATE*** I was able to solve the problem. With the mobo that's included on stock settings, you will get errors on prime95 stress testing. All you need to do is switch the voltage control to manual and bump the voltage up by 1 step... I don't know why it isn't stable on stock voltage but bumping it up by 1 step will not hurt anything and I'm running at 58C on maximum load running prime95 for 3+ hours and no errors... Satisfied! Also Make sure you switch IDE mode to SATA on your bios so you can get maximum performance out of your SSD that this 3gbps board will let you. I would recommend upgrading your board with 6gbs sata connectors otherwise you will lose a a little performance from your ssd. Everything is All good! Thanks Newegg I'm still disappointed about the value ram though lol. PSU is IN WIN with 5 star reviews from doing a little more research This is a good system but could be better with a 6gbs sata board. Very Happy now.

Pros: Looks Nice, MSI 660 TI GPU Stays fairly cool on stock settings under full load.
Cons: I opened the case to see what this baby had to offer and I was disappointed that I spent $1,300 that shipped with G.Skill Value Ram. The Cooler and PSU are also a different brand than what is shown in the picture... Prime95 errors after about 20mins with it all on stock settings probably due to cheap ram or the PSU which brand name I have never heard of before) I spoke too soon on my first review probably because I was excited and had only owned it for a couple days and hadn't tested it with prime95 or cracked the case. I feel ripped off with the amount of money I spent for this system and received some low quality parts... The Mobo is also a budget model.
3. Cheap PSU
5.Errors in Prime95 at stock settings leaves little room for stability when Overclocking.
6. Windows 8
Other Thoughts: I like shopping here and usually I am satisfied I should have bought all the parts separate and made my own custom build. I didn't expect a PC that I spent almost 1.5k on to come with low quality parts The only thing worth noting here is the SSD, The Geforce 660Ti and the 2TB HDD best parts in the whole system...READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Fast. Can handle anything I throw at it. The packaging is great! Tons of padding, the system didn't have a scratch on it!
Cons: When I first received it I opened the case to checked the connections, everything looked and felt good so I powered it up. Everything was going good at first until it suddenly powered down, I tried powering it back on but it would only run for about 10 seconds and then power it back down, I took the cover back off and looked at all the connections again, I was relieved when I noticed the cooling systems power plug wasn't properly plugged with the 3 pin connector, it was off a pin and the cooling system wasn't getting power. I plugged it in properly and the blue led came on on the cooling system. Everything has been working as it should ever since. I'm just glad it was an assembly error that was easily fixable and not an RMA. I docked 1 Egg due to the assembly error the could have ended in disaster.
Other Thoughts: Great product.READ FULL REVIEW
