Walmart doesnt seem like the greatest idea to me to get a computer, but when i saw that they were selling CyberPower and IBuyPower computers, i had to check it out. I first started with the Cyberpower computer that had the fx 4100, paired with a geforce Nvidia 520... it was horrible, blue screened like 7x the 3 days i had it, graphics werent that great, so i returned and what not... when i returned it i wanted to check out the IBuyPower computer because that was the website i really likes and what not... so i was in store looking at this bad boy online, very impressed with it, was basically a big upgrade from the cyberpower computer, but at the time it was only $200 more, so i decided to go for it... shipping took forever, cus IBuyPower basically makes it when you order it, and tests it then, they dont already have it made and not test it like i believe cyberpower did... this thing if fast, obviously before starting it i took of the side panel and checked all the connections, and while i was in there, i did some cable management, tucked everything away and what not, looks GGGOOODDDD..... this thing is QUIET when you have the fans on low setting, i have to check the side to see if the blue is glowing or i dont know if the computer is on when my screen is off... be careful with the fans, they are a plastic carbon composite basically... easy to break a fin, i broke on on the front 120mm but it has so many fins, it actually works without any wobble, so ill be using it until i get a new fan, which should be this week... i am also going to replace the stock cooler, i have a blue orb 2 that im hopeing with fit in there, i have already added another 4 gigs of ram, making it a total of 12gigs, which i know is pointless, but i litterally had this extra stick of ram hanging around... the cable management is annoying cus the rubber grommits around the holes dont stay in place, but put everything threw, and at the end like i did, just slide the grommit back where its suppose to be... Ive only played League Of Legends on it, and it was only 2 games, but it runs perfectly without a single issue at high settings on everything.. the basis of me really wanting this computer was diablo 3... yep, its gonna be amazing... the phantom 410 case is awesome btw, plenty of room to expand, i just really hope my blue orb 2 will fit into it... '
the PSU is an xtreme gear 700 watts, i have had no issues so far with it, but ive only had the computer for about 24 hours... plenty of usbs room up top to put a 2nd 120mm fan up there, as well as room in front for another 120mm fan, this computer is worth every penny, trust me, the only reason i didnt buy this computer straight from IBUYPOWER website is because its cheaper at walmart to buy, as well as it was only $0.97 to ship to my house, which would have been $80 from ibuypower to ship it for some reason, gotta love walmarts work arounds
