Functionally incredible, but slightly louder than expected
Pros: -Crazy Fast operation -Great graphics capabilities -ARGB fans and cooler are flawless -literally plug and Play
Cons: -Looks aren't anything special for the price point -Slightly above idle operation causes a fan ramp up that gets rather loud. -Start up instruction are lacking for a novice user
Overall Review: Overall, the computer is great. It came packaged well, double boxed with bubble wrap separating the two boxes. There was an expandable foam insert inside for shipping that supported the graphics card. The instructions for start-up listed removing the foam insert but thats where they stopped. There were no instructions or information about certifying your windows copy (required), what apps or programs comes preloaded, what the programs pre-installed do, or how you control the RGB, etc...(granted some of this is easily googled). I'm somewhat computer savvy so this wasn't a huge problem but I could see how it could cause some frustrations/problems for others. That being said, with the lack of programs or apps pre-installed comes the benefit of not having a ton of bloatware clogging things up. Once running it's basically silent when not under load. Doing just about anything which causes a load, ramps up the fans to a noise level I found surprising. Usually only lasting moments but the fans were much louder than other computers I've owned. Again, with that, the CPU and GPU temps while gaming remained low. Overall, I would definitely recommend this purchase to anyone.
