912TL-I is a great buy


If your purse strings are tight and you still want a good amount of juice, you can't go wrong with iBuyPower 912TL-I.

Very powerful machine. I've never owned anything better. At this price it's practically a steal-- the Dell I was looking at with similar specs (even slightly inferior) was twice as much ; In the end, because I went with this model, I was able to buy an...

Unfortunately, as others have said, the fans are really too loud. I don't mind (I don't even hear them anymore) but my family does. Solution? Get the specs for the fans, shell out a little more money and buy some silent ones. That's what I'm going to...

Very nice overall dont regret buying this

Very fast no junk software installed lots of fans runs all my games at max performance

Hard drive not attached when i got it just flopping around.. while all the fans are nice they are so loud! case is fairly large but that really dosent bother me that much

Not a PC to get shipped...


My HD came loose during shipping, luckily it didnt hurt anything else in the case but the HD was DOA. Great PC to buy somewhere but to get it shipped? Very risky process. The replacement process is long too so be warned, could provide a bad experience....

The computer itself is really good - runs WoW at max no problem, even ran Crysis on high/1024 silky smooth. Also its a nice package, lots of fans and very efficient.

The case is large which is OK for me, but will turn off some people. The WORST part is that the hard drives are not attached with screws, which is ridiculous. They're held in with plastic little rails which are way too flimsy to handle the shipping...

Great Buy!


Several people mentioned having some internal damage due to shipping/poor craftsmanship. I received mine in perfect condition. Also people have complained about the volume of the fans. In my experience, they are only loud when the PC is booting up....

This is a really good machine for the price. I like the look of the case personally, and the fans are just incredible. I've been running on this PC for 6 weeks now, and there isn't a thing I don't love about it. No problems so far whatsoever. It's...

The case is big...much bigger than I expected, but that really doesn't count as a "con" because it isn't a problem. Just be prepared to give this beast some breathing room! The only other "con" I can think of is that the price dropped 50 bucks not long...

Eats games for breakfast


Great computer. Yes you could definitely built it for about 100-150$ cheaper but Sometimes it's nice to just plug and play. I'd greatly recommend this computer to others. I'd give it five stars if it weren't for the power supply being beat to bloody...

Superb computer for playing games especially Oblivion on max graphics. Lots of fans keep the PC very cool and a good amount of RAM too keep things running fast and smooth. Somewhat loud but you get used to it. At least then I know it's running cool :P

This definitely was not put together with loving hands. Shipping took great care with it no problem since the box was untouched, but upon taking it out I found that the power supply was only bolted in three out of the four places it probably should be...

I'd like one that works


I'm going to return it and get another one. I think that if it isn't BROKEN, it'll be fine. But I suppose I'll find out after the exchange.

It can keep itself pretty cool with the giant fans. And it's a nice computer in general. Runs games fine

I can't seem to get it to WORK properly. It keeps glitching out every 10 minutes and I have to restart it like four times to get it going. Not sure what happened there. Not exactly sure what that means or what it's doing. I popped it open and...

Great Comp


When I received it the hard drive had fallen out but was easily put back in place, also it yanked the power cord from the dvd player when it fell. It was fixed easily, but more precautions need to be taken when shipping this. I downloaded speedfan in...

Fast computer, great for gaming, 64 bit, very little junk software installed on it, and an excellent buy for the money. I am very pleased with this purchase

The tower is very large, the processor fan is very loud, and it is not shipping friendly

good computer i think although i didnt really have much of one before so i cant really compare it to anything amazing i like it.

Looks cool, fast case made of good quality lots of fans. What i expected

kinda big wasnt expecting the thing to be so big but its no big deal. Hard drive was completely out of the mounting place and was just flopping around in the case. Luckly no damage. oh and the thing is really loud with all those fans going

Poor design


newegg does not honor the warranty on PC's. They referred me to iBuyPower. I have submitted an email them requesting refund. I'll see how it goes. I am not confident that the hard drive mounting is sufficient (without additional reinforcement) to allow...

Not sure. Case has some esthetic value, if you like the Antec 900 clone look. Lots of fans, etc...

The hard drive mounting brackets are extremely flimsy. Apparently sufficiently flimsy to allow the hard drive to come loose during shipping (no obvious damage to the box). The subsequent damage inside the case from the hard rive flopping around ripped...

i probly could have built it cheaper but then you have to go through and set everything up and its just a pain.

Sweet case, giant fan... bigger than a cd!

Nothing yet. so far i havent cussed it yet. i cant beleive it.
