Great computer (so far) 3/26/2020 2:58:57 AM

Pros: Very fast, 80+ platinum power supply, build quality it’s good

Cons: cable management isn’t the greatest.
(messy wiring inside) it only has one ram stick.

Overall Review: The fact that it only has one ram stick kinda stinks because I personally would rather have two 8 gigabyte stick than one 16 so it would at least be running one two channel memory but it is a Samsung chip set on the ram side. Does have m.2 ssd witch is really fast and snappy. The 2tb hard disk is kinda sluggish though. Power supply is 80+ platinum so no worries there. The cpu cooler keeps it at a decent temperature good air flow in the case haven’t run into any overheating issues yet. I’d say the ram being on one channel is not something I like and cable management is a little to messy but overall it’s a great computer would recommend!

Dear Ann,

Thank you for sharing your opinion on the desktop specs. A system with an i7-9700K and an RTX 2080 Ti is not an odd combination and work together perfectly fine.
