So Far So good


I did a lot of comparison shopping (8 hours worth crunching numbers) and I realized that going pre-built at this level was arguably cheaper than building a computer yourself. At the time of this purchase, I'd like to think this computer was at the...

I will rate the product a 4 stars. But I'd rate the assembler 2 stars. 4 stars for the product. Works good most things came installed (see cons). For the price and the date (around december 2015), buying this was cheaper than buying all the same parts...

There was a foam package thing to protect the innards of the computer during shipping that dislodged the cooling fan/heatsink from the Processor. I'm assuming it expanded more after the closed the case (ASSUMING, but who knows maybe they don't care)...

Broken Heat sink


This computer has awesome components and was a great deal on Black Friday

The heat sink like everyone else's was completely unattached causing the processor to overheat. Its a shame because now Black Friday is over which means there are not as many good deals, but I can't replace the computer I got because it is out of stock.

Heat Sink Not Attached



Like I have seen in previous reviews. The heat sink was not attached when I opened the box. They also put too much thermal paste when they did attach the heat sink so the paste is on the side of the cpu. The computer was crashing frequently. Tried to...

Poor assembly


The product's specs and component parts were good value for price. The NewEgg RMA return and refund process was straightforward.

As others stated, PC arrived with heatsink rattling around loosely in the case, which could have damaged other components. No brackets visible to anchor heatsink. Would not recommend ABS products! Also, of you need to return the PC, Would advise using...

A steal


For the price, I will deal with refitting a heatsink, that takes 2 minutes. I love this machine. You can't get a better quality computer for less, that's just the truth. Highly recommend.

• Great quality hardware, skylake with ddr4 ram. Excellent MSI video card. • Case looks great, good airflow as well. Not even close to overheating problems. • You can't find a better prebuilt for $750 even better than most $1000 ones. • Personally I...

• Like everyone is saying the heat sink was loose during transport.

Runs Like A Champ


I could not take a egg away for the heat sink and hard drive as I enjoyed getting my hands on this nice PC.

This is my first gaming desktop...but this thing is impressive. The SSD brings shutdowns, boot, or reboots to negligible levels. The system is almost silent. Windows 10 is so far running smoothly. The components seem to be top quality. The 8 gigs of...

The heat sink (cooler master) was loose in the case but packaging kept it from damaging anything. A hard drive was also slightly ajar. This is due to shipping....I use to work for UPS these things can take some hard hits during shipping. As far as...

Please help! Used to be a great computer...


Good price for awesome components. Wish it was built well

I was really enjoying this computer for the first month that i had it! Now it won't boot. Any suggestions? There is power to the computer as the white light on the graphics card is on, as well as the RAM flashing, which is a known feature. However,...

Overall happy, but customer service never responded to me.


Great computer for the price after I reinstalled the heat sink.

Heat sink fell off during shipping. Heat sink paste was on several components. Wasn't exactly sure how to reinstall the heat sink and spent about a half hour making sure it was correct and cleaning paste off of other components. There was no...

Paste for everyone!!!


There wasn't an IED in it.

It looked like there was a stryofoam rave party thrown in my PC. The heat sink was unattached like everyone else's. Extremely dented and no brackets to reattach, not that you should have to with a pre built rig. At the time of writing this Its too late...

Read the reviews!


If they shipped this with the heatsink in a separate box or a liquid cooling system it would be an easy 5 eggs. Does not include the original HSF, if that matters to you.

-Competitively priced -Great specs -Fantastic wiring job -No bloatware!

As in every other review, the heatsink came detached in transit. Luckily it caught in the packing material instead of becoming a wrecking ball inside the case. Everything was fine after I put the bracket back on and reattached it, although this really...
