9/10 Gaming PC

ABS Gladiator Gaming PC - Intel i7 11700KF - GeForce RTX 3080 - G.Skill TridentZ RGB 16GB DDR4 3200MHz - 1TB Intel M.2 NVMe SSD
ABS Gladiator Gaming PC - Intel i7 11700KF - GeForce RTX 3080 - G.Skill TridentZ RGB 16GB DDR4 3200MHz - 1TB Intel M.2 NVMe SSD

Pros: Mine came with a Gigabyte 3080 OC v2, ASUS Prime 590 v, ThermalTake 240 AIO, and EVGA 750w 80+ gold psu. ABS customer support is awesome and this is my second prebuilt purchase from them. I upgraded from the gaming master with a 3060. The shipment was really fast. No issues with start up or windows install. Got drivers and essentials downloaded quickly. Case looks great with the RGB, one wire disconnected from mobo during shipment and was easily spotted. >65 FPS on games (battlefield2042, ready or not, hell let loose, squad) with ultra settings and DLSS at 1440p, which works great with my ASUS TUFF monitor.

Cons: Had some stability issues freezing/crashing or randomly shutting down after an 2+ hrs. Performed a driver wipe and clean install of windows 11. Reinstalled drivers and did monitored some basic diagnostics (thermals,clocks,Mhrz) . User benchmak showed below average gpu performance even with the stock dual bios switched to OC. However I have havent OCd the gpu/cpu through any software or had anymore freezing since the reinstalls. RGB daisy chain and cable management could have been cleaner/better, but there is a lot to fit in a small area and I probably wouldnt have done better myself.

Overall Review: Im a repeat ABS customer for a reason , they stand by their products with quick/knowledgeable customer support and provide a valuable service at a fair price (especially in the current market). Im really very happy with this purchase, and the components used to build it.

Sold 9/10 product and experience

ABS Master Gaming PC - Intel i5 11400F - GeForce RTX 3060 - 16GB DDR4 3000MHz - 512GB M.2 NVMe SSD
ABS Master Gaming PC - Intel i5 11400F - GeForce RTX 3060 - 16GB DDR4 3000MHz - 512GB M.2 NVMe SSD

Pros: -the computer shipped quickly (N.E USA) -came with an EVGA GeForce RTX 3060 xc -ran great/cool right out of the box -activated bios xmp profile 1 to get advertised ram speed - great cable management and overall look -can handle most games at high settings holding 75-80 FPS , running DLSS, ray tracing, etc, will drop that at 1440p - stress tests showed great component performance. -good buy for a new PC gamer without the risk of assembly errors -works well/fast in browsing, discord, gaming, etc all at once.

Cons: -windows wouldnt active properly , had to use a work around to get a working key. -the psu isnt future proof for gpu upgrades. -the cpu cannot be OC even though its the (F) variant. -VOIP not working with 3.5mm Jack (tried 3x headsets, and had to use a USB adapter) -frame rate drop on high settings with 1440p 144hrz asus tuff monitor -500gb SSD is nice but youll need a TB (came with cables though so I can buy another 500gb SSD. -instructions included in box are kinda terrible -they should provide a list of comparable upgrades for the unit for the future.

Overall Review: I am really happy with this purchase and believe ABS provided a quality product at a fair price. This would make a good gift/purchase as a first PC for a gamer/VR enthusiast/ streamer. It would have been a 5 egg review if the windows key & 3.5mm issue didnt occur (which is minor) . If ABS reaches out with a list comparable upgrades, as a bonus Ill make this a 5 egg review.
