Most Favorable Review

Got it for a great deal.

SAPPHIRE Toxic Radeon RX 6900 XT 16GB GDDR6 PCI Express 4.0 ATX Video Card 11308-13-20G
SAPPHIRE Toxic Radeon RX 6900 XT 16GB GDDR6 PCI Express 4.0 ATX Video Card 11308-13-20G

Pros: Runs cool. Doesnt worry me when I have the Adrenalin set to zero rpm. (Below 40c) The fans came pre installed to the radiator and it was a clean wiring job with zip ties and the such. The toxxic software is surprisingly functional for how basic it looks. Im pleasantly surprised. The price point was spot on at the time of purchase. It was going for $30 more than a reference. Also included a $30 promo and it was literally the cost of a reference.

Cons: Slight con- Huge radiator. 360mm. Glad the Corsair 5000X case can accommodate, as I have a 360 radiator for the cpu. (Still had to remove the front fans to install in the side slot) RGB isnt as bright as I thought, very dim compared to Corsair. The coolant tubes could be a little longer.

Overall Review: This is my first card that has a radiator attached to it. Im happy with the cooling and, well, I dont want to go back to air blowers when the junction (while still safe) can peak at 95c. This doesnt go past 80 on peak.

Pros: Shipped fast and was here within one business day with Newegg saver. I can't beat that. I love the light up keyboard and the fact it's a fast booter with the ssd installed.

Cons: First off I'm an idiot for taking a gift card that doesn't even amount for 2% of the cost of the laptop. I'll fault myself for that; not taking a much more critical look at a high investment such as a gaming laptop. I purchased it new, and when I received it, it was obviously an open box. The manual and Windows CD was opened by a box cutter, the sealed CD pouch was ripped open, and the box wasn't even entirely closed. Battery pack was out of its pouch, along with cords. Look like a neat little mess was done to try to put everything back in its place. That was just the accessory box, and I didn't dare touch the rest or turn on the laptop without contacting customer support. I contacted support and we went back and forth. I was allowed to open the rest of the machine and boot it up. It booted just fine and was taken to the Start up process. We haggled over compensation over new vs open box, and unfortunately I took the gift card over RMA. After it was said and done, and logged into the full desktop, I realized there was a Windows Version and build number on the bottom right of the screen. Yep that's right, there wasn't a legit copy of windows on the bugger. I had to put the right key in from the last consumer that fiddled with it. I put in the correct key and it was accepted from there. I decide then to personalize it with a decent browser. I double click windows explorer and I'm plagued with this "Specialbox" nonsense. Great, I have malware not 20 minutes into this machine. By this time I'm fumed and i regret the second I accepted a meager "customer service giftcard" (which expires in 90 days) for having an open box. As said, the gift card didn't amount to 2% of the cost of the laptop and open boxes on Newegg are slashed by at least 10%. Overall I'm very unhappy with this purchase and the slap of the face on solving the issue. Cyberpower had nothing to do with my negative comments on the matter, so I can't egg them down, but I can certainly deduct eggs from how this was handled with Newegg. This is my third and final laptop I will purchase from Newegg. in fact, this is my final purchase from Newegg. I say this with a heavy heart and great disappointment.

It works

Cheap but not...

Command & Conquer: First Decade PC Game
Command & Conquer: First Decade PC Game

Pros: Excellent Games, over 10 games for less than 30 bucks? Amazing. 10 years of my childhood are spent on C&C, each was a reasonable hit, and still keeps on truckin. (Just don't try C&C 4, that's an abomination)

Cons: Do your shopping. This game is actually $20 other retailers.
