Pros: Very aesthetically pleasing tower and RGB lighting. Super quiet, even under load Powerful, capable machine Quality components Well thought out build

Cons: RGB on 2 fans was non-functioning upon unboxing (was able to fix fairly easily as described in review) Slight damage to chassis on inconspicuous, inconsequential location.

Overall Review: Honestly I love this computer. It's sleek, sexy, powerful, quiet. I am super happy with it, especially given that I nabbed it with a $1000 CAD discount. I would have given it 5 stars easy except that 2 of the RGB fans weren't lighting up when I got it. The fans were spinning and doing their job, but the lights wouldn't come on. I had to re-route the rgb cables into different ports than they had them configured to get them to come on, but at least they came on. Could be problematic for those less inclined to tinker with a brand new top of the line machine. The other factor that brought this down to a 4 star rating for me was damage to the chassis. Part of the chassis had been bent in, albeit in a very inconspicuous spot, and in such a way as to not affect the functionality of the case or rest of the computer in any way. I managed to bend it all back into shape pretty nicely as well. That said, still a little disappointing to have the damage before it got to me. Worth noting that this did not happen in transit either as the damage was actually behind one of the glass panels so this definitely happened before the tower was put together. But ignoring those 2 fairly minor detractors, it's a beautiful unit. Newegg didn't specify which make of GPU I was getting, only that I was getting a 3080ti. Well it just so happened that I ended up with the EVGA FTW 3 so I was super thrilled on that. The machine runs incredibly quietly, even under load. My last rig was quite loud so this is a huge bonus for me. It looks incredible as well. The tower is a very nice, sleek design, with plenty of room for cables to disappear and keep things looking tidy. The CPU cooler, fans and ram are all Corsair so the lighting is all in sync. The only lighting that is different is that on the GPU, which has close enough color patterns that it doesn't feel out of place at all. PSU appears to be sufficient for the build without being overkill. Haven't had any issues yet. The rest of the rig, in terms of performance, is what you'd expect given the specs. A highly capable computer, of course. It's been a while since my last rig was anything close to what you could consider top of the line, so it feels great to be at the top of the food chain again. All in all I am quite happy with this build and again, even more thrilled given the massive 20% discount on it. Would definitely recommend, even at full price. Again, I'd have no problems giving this a 5 star review were it not for the chassis damage and the fact that I had to re-configure the rgb fans to get them to work out of the box. 4/5 will have to do.
