phenom II Q6

 

I called ibuypower to get the new stick. newegg says full replacement only i didnt want to pack it allup and send it back so ll pay for shipping fo the ram stick to go back and forth. again thats my choice. Newegg has sold me a great pc

This is a great pc for the money. its fast almost cat evn hear it running and its basically right next to my head. Im running WoW on ultra with a high fps and that with one ram stick out because its bein sent back to me "had a bad one" but yeah its a...

had a bad ram stick. it cam loose in sipping and damaged it. NOT t\anyons fault and no reason to say anything bad about the PC. even tho it was a bit annoying the system coms with a windows 7 disk that can boot and test the ram so even someon with no...

Awesome Machine

 

Overall great computer, I shouldn't have a problem keeping this computer for the next 2-3 years and not have to change anything. only thing I suggest is buying more ram.

Great system, love the case. Runs fast and the x6 makes doing anything a breeze. WoW runs at 70-100FPS with Shadows on high. Had a few problems downloading skype to the system but that's nothing to dock an egg for. Runs SILENT

Video card covers the second slot but that's about it for cons. wish it came with more ram

Excellent desktop for the price

 

A couple of possibly important details: 1) The power cable is right near the top of the tower, so keep that in mind when you're planning the positioning. My desk has a back that comes down too far too allow me to push the computer flush to the desk. ...

Cheap, easy, made of quality parts ; I just opened up the box for this (came in two days...with a snowstorm) and started it up. Absolutely no problems. Started up fast, quickly downloaded some programs and started them up. Multitasks without a hitch....

Keyboard and mouse are pretty cheap, but functional. The keyboard has not given me any problems so far, so I may just keep it for a while. The backspace button is really small and I find myself accidentally hitting the \ button instead. Takes a little...

Rough at first, but tuned to stable machine

 

System constantly failed out of the box until I moved memory is in correct slots (blue) to get dual Ch working and manually set the memory speed to 1333 w/ 1.7-1.8v. Worked with the voltage to get to the most stable setting.

Very fast, tunable, Graphics card is adequate for most high end games and clean look

Not tuned out of the box resulting in constant freezing and reboots under Win 7 64bit. Memory specification not working with MBOD

Great Budget System

 

This system is underrated, don't let the 500g HD fool you. It's fast, well built, and upgradeable. Very happy with this purchase.

Fast, powerful, quiet. Hard to ask for more for the price. The 6 core processor multitasks without flinching. Overclocking friendly Bios if you think you need to - not necessary for anything I've seen yet, and I've thrown just about everything at it

I removed the side fan grille and replaced with a bar type cover instead (couple of dollars). Now it can breathe freely, no other cons so far

No problems

 

Power, Price, No Bloatware. I'm very happy with this buy. The PC ran flawlessly out of the box

None

Awesome build

 

Just a great machine for the money.

Lightning fast, great value for a six-core machine. Came completely assembled, no glitches, looks neat. Have been unable thus far to make it slow down in any way

Hard drive could be a bit bigger? Case is a bit difficult to open/close, so upgrading/transfer from old hard drive is going to be a pain

Broke within 2 weeks of ownership

 

I paid for expedited shipping to have this PC sent to me after my old one broke. And the PC worked awesome. Until it broke. I followed the instructions on the note that came with the PC: DO NOT RETURN TO PLACE OF PURCHASE, and thusly contacted...

Fast ; Silent ; Runs games like a dream

Graphics card broke 2 weeks into ownership

Only One Problem

 

I plan to OC from stock 2.8 to 3.2 or 3.4.,and get my GPU doing Folding as well,but ATI cards are notoriously difficult to get working at this(at my tech level anyway),so I'll wait till my wallet recovers a bit and take it to a guru. I definitely...

I'm running this 24/7 @ 100% doing Folding@Home ; My Kill-A-Watt says it's using ~190 watts at stock speeds. Both boot-up and shutdowns are far faster than any other machine I've owned

I purchased this Open Box. The first couple of days I had a number of uncommanded shutdowns. Turned out to be a heat problem. Unseasonable heat wave,plus a weak side fan with a fine metal mesh grill that wouldn't provide enough air to support a...

Good when it works

 

If not for the bad RAM card and weird speaker issue, I would rate this 5/5 stars. I was so frustrated trying to diagnose the problem that I would've rated it 1/5 for the trouble. I would recommend this product to others, with the warning to expect the...

Runs fairly quiet, the see-through panel and blue light effect are a little tacky, but kinda cool. I purchased it to be able to handle StarCraft II, and it runs just fine on high effects settings. The purchase was a good value

Biggest problem: One of the two RAM cards did not work upon delivery. Sometimes the machine would not boot up at all, other times it would boot up with half the memory. After diagnosing the problem iBuyPower replaced the faulty RAM card, but I paid to...
