Breaking Stigma about Prebuilt PCs
Pros: First and foremost, performance: Phenomenal. Coming from a custom pc builder background, I really didn't want to buy a Pre-built, but with the current regards to graphics card shortages, this option became the best all round. Now, I'm not saying all pre-built systems are great, and you should 100% do your research about components when purchasing a PC, but this product really hit all the right notes. The cooling is fantastic, and I'm really happy to see the temperatures be as low as they are, as initially I thought that the 240mm AIO might not be up to the task due to uncertainty on the make, when it came with a Thermal Take I was relieved, it does a really good job. I've included screenshots of the machine running under full load, as well as a benchmark. The RGB Coloring is a neat feature and I'm really happy you can customize everything regarding it, from theming it the way you want, to having everything turned off. Case is really sleek, and allows for really good airflow. Wiring was done very well, and I'm pretty sure they did a better job at it than I probably could have. I must say I was more than impressed on how well it was shipped, and this was one of my biggest fears. Really well packaged, and I'm also happy they included all the bits and pieces that it should come with.
Cons: I realize I gave high praise in the Pro's, so here are the things I can see them improve on; more of suggestions than cons per se: The machine comes with a NVMe that is split into two partitions, this I would have preferred to be one, not a deal breaker, just would have like an option to have it as one partition. Also, it might be confusing for regular users to see two drives instead of one. The default memory speed was not set for XMP in the Bios, might have been overlooked, but could be something regular users might not know about. The noise level of the system is really low, but not unnoticeable. However, even at full throttle, the noise level doesn't increase that much. I still might upgrade the fans to silent versions in the future. Having not given it much thought at the time of buying though, a silent fan option might be nice.
Overall Review: 100% Would recommend, and would buy it again. Having more options on customization is always nice, but as it is, this knocks it out of the park.
