this thing is actually pretty sick. almost perfect for a prebuilt.
Pros: - NO PROPRIETARY PARTS. this is just a tower thrown together with off the shelf components in china, so it behaves exactly like a pc you built yourself would. fully unlocked bios so u can use xmp, no ridiculous requirements if u decide to upgrade any of the thermal solutions. good stuff man. - 'good enough' dgpu for utilizing multiple displays - a ton of airflow. neutral pressure symmetrical 3 intake / 3 exhaust fan setup - good amount of storage on nvme - (neutral) i have no clue what brand or really .. style cpu cooler this is, but it gets the job done. thermals are great.
Cons: - 1x8gb ram stick, single channel - windows 10 home is installed but theres no product key included in the installation (these keys are not worth more than $15/$20, do not pay full price for your OS) - really, really strange single hard drive partitioning choices - (subjective) rgb unicorn vomit
Overall Review: this product is just about 80% as good as if you purpose built everything on your own, docking some points for standard prebuilt pc carnal sins. honestly however much these OEMs save by using 1x8/16gb instead of 2x4/8gb is nowhere near enough for what theyre doing to their products performance. its ridiculous. no proprietary parts. great airflow. O/S image is pretty close to a barebones windows iso installation, no included bloat or malware. lastly, i got this thing when it was on sale for around ~$600. that is unreal dude.
