Most Favorable Review

I really want to give this 4 stars but because of the convenience and packaging I give it 5

ABS Master Gaming PC - Intel i7 11700F - GeForce RTX 3060 Ti - 16GB DDR4 3000MHz - 1TB M.2 NVMe SSD

Overall Review: I have built 3 computers in the past (2 for my brother/dad) and I personally upgraded from this build: GTX 1060 6gb, i5-6600, 16 gb ram. There has been a graphics card shortage in recent months so I decided to just bite the bullet and buy a prebuilt and the leap to a 3060ti seemed logical. The delivery time (2 days) and packaging were fantastic. The graphics card was held firmly in place by Instapak Foam which I really appreciate. Seriously, go google Instapak Foam and you will see how neat it is. The RAM is from OLAY which I am honestly fine with, no problems here. The SSD is an MSI M370 1TB m.2 stick which is actually a really great SSD. The Graphics card is a Gigabyte 3060ti Eagle which again, is a nice GPU. The Power Supply is a Gigabyte p650b which is generally used for low-mid tier systems but I am not going to do any overclocking so it's not like I am going to be pushing this PSU to its limits. I only have two real problems with this prebuilt. 1st, if you look at the pictures I have attached, the case actually creeps up heavily onto the ports on the graphics card. I physically am unable to plug in any HDMI or DisplayPort cables into the computer. Pictured are not 1, not 2, but FOUR different cables that I couldn't fully fit into the ports on the GPU because of the case. Because there is almost no clearance for all 4 ports, you either have to get some kind of cable that is incredibly thin at the ends, or just take some metal shears and cutout part of the case. The 2nd problem I have with this build is the CPU cooler. It is a thermaltake ux100. Yeah it looks pretty with its RGB lighting, but the thing is terrible at cooling. Just watching a youtube video in a 73 F degree room meant the CPU crept up to 39C-50C minimum. I know low load/idle temperatures don't really matter, but I literally got better CPU temperatures on my i5-6600 using the stock intel cooler. Playing Aliens: Fireteam gave me an average of 77-83C which isn't terrible, but it's not great. Opening up Vermintide 2 and watching the starting cutscene (not even playing the game) rose the temperature up to a crispy 93C average. I opted to just grab a Vetroo V5 CPU cooler online for $30 and my CPU temperatures have been fine ever since. Honestly not a big problem because entry level tower CPU Coolers like the Vetroo V5 all go for about 25 USD-35 USD. I just really wish that the builders would have opted to install a tower cooler instead of the subpar thermaltake ux100 (they are only about 10 usd more expensive than the ux100) Overall, I am pretty satisfied for what I paid for, 5/5 :)
