HP Envy Phoenix 860st Review and Ratings


With powerful components, quiet operation, and a slick case with built-in color-changing lights, this Phoenix is the best gaming rig we've seen from HP in years. It's pricey in our review configuration, but unless 4K gaming's your thing, you can...

Smartly chosen configuration for high-end gaming ; Attractive case ; Easily handles games at 4K resolution

Heavy on the bloatware ; Messy internal wiring

With components wisely chosen for 4K gaming in our $2,200 review configuration, enough CPU muscle to plow through high-end productivity tasks, an attractive, mostly metal case with built-in lighting, and quiet operation thanks to liquid cooling, the...

Very Disappointed


I received my computer in Dec 2016 and was very pleased for the first several months. However like others apparently, I more recently have a problem with the liquid cooling fan exhaust system. The fan makes a rattle clicking sound constantly which is...

Solid Performance


My legondary HP Phoenix has been running solid, practically 24/7, 365 for the last 5 years without a hitch. It is used extensively for high end image processing, business, and multi-player gaming. Fully loaded with liquid cooling, Nvidia GTX graphics...

They fail - totally unreliable


I have had 2 exactly the same . The first went to blue screen on day 5 & died. The second had liquid cooling system failure. These are junk.

Heed the warning of others.


Before purchasing, I read the previous reviews and hoped I'd be the lucky one who got a 5 star unit. I love Hp and prefer them over all others, however my unit hasn't worked since day one, continuous re-starts, freezing, loss of data and programs and...

I also love my 860ST. It is very quick


I really like the SSD and the 2GB hard drive . I upgraded to the 4.0 Intel chip. I do have one problem and am wondering if anyone else has experienced this. I use IE11 and not EDGE since I am a long time Norton user and EDGE will not accept extension....

Almost the dream machine I was hoping for.


I've been a HP fan for years and years. I decided to replace my 3+ year old tower and after a bit of research decided on this ENVY Phoenix 860 ST. It has quite a few features but decided to upgrade the machine some. I wanted faster performance so I...

CPU cooler pump failing after less than 3 weeks


Less than 3 weeks of use and the CPU cooler's pump fan is going bad. It's got a very loud, irregular rattle. I contacted HP's customer support and they won't give me a new CPU cooler. Instead, they're requiring me to send my computer in to have it...
