    Great gaming PC for the price.

    Great product for the price. There are plenty of reviews here for arrival with loose screws/components and/or heat dissipation issues. I can say that mine arrived with everything tightened/seated properly, all power connections made securely and properly packaged within it’s own box and the Amazon box. As for heat, after several hours of Destiny 2, Just Cause 4 and Sniper Elite 4 at max settings, the fans were running silently and there were no heat warnings. All in all, this is the second iBuyPower tower I’ve purchased and would definitely do so again.

    Be aware of what you are buying

    On the first start up two of the fan rgb lights did not work (plugs in the back panel came loose) and the memory failed (twice). You would assume if you pay a thousand dollars for a product it would function correctly. Packaging was amazing the controller for the rgb was not included (it stated that it would). The tempered glass looks nice. The tower is much smaller than I expected and does not fit a full size motherboard. I changed out the motherboard on day one as it did not support the SLI for my two MSI video cards. The power supply was weak and could not support the video cards either so I also replaced that right away. Cord management is a hassle as the case is small. At this point I have replaced more than what came in the box. When I switched motherboards windows required an activation code (not included) and the support offered in the purchase was absolutely non existent they text you in a chat box that is clearly a non English speaking robot. They stated they would call me on a specific date and that never happened. Overall I will not buy another pre built computer. Absolutely disappointed.

    If it seems to good to be true, it probably is.

    I have to admit that the specs on this computer are impressive given the price point; although, the reality was that the box because completely unstable and rebooted itself over, and over, and over again.Before throwing in the towel and having no choice to return the computer, I did give Amazon a call who put me in touch with the iBuyPower technical support staff. Of course, it took nearly 2 hours to reach them, but I did eventually talked with them and shared with that very polite individual that my event log was littered with dozens of critical errors all indicating a hardware issue.It didn’t take long to convince the iBuyPower technical support person that I had a hardware issue. The iBuyPower support individual offered to send me a new power supply, that I would need to install. The installation did not bother me, but what did bother me was that if this was only the first significant issue of many more to come, then I would own a rather shiny boat anchor, which, as you might imagine, is not what I purchased the computer for. Besides, I don’t own a boat! 🙂 Prior to making big purchases like this I do all sorts of research, and I must admit I was surprised by the high rating that this computer had associated with it. The truth of that metric was immediately discovered when I first receive the computer– you will get up to three $10 dollar gift certificates if you show proof of giving the computer a 5 star rating. That rather unscrupulous practice should have been my first clue. Oh, by the way, I never gave the computer the 5 start ratings, so now I am free to give my honest feedback, not some solicited positive comment. In the reviews, I did hear of periodic issues with memory cards coming an not being properly seated; although, since I have built computer in the past from spare parts, re-seating a couple of memory cards did not scare me off. So, after doing my homework, I pulled the trigger and bought the computer, Early on I had one of the USB ports simply disconnect for no known reason. While I thought that was odd, I was so enamored with the truly beautiful computer, I chose to overlook that issue. Although, by the grace of God, in the last week that I was able to return the computer for a full refund, the computer simply had a mind of its own and rebooted itself every day, at least once. The next day, it did that twice. The day after, it rebooted itself more and more. Eventually, once I had started the return process the computer was so unstable that I had extreme difficulty removing my personal data from the hard drive, since it was now rebooting every couple of minutes. I returned the computer on May 28th, and it arrived at the Amazon facility on June 2nd. Since then, I’ve sent emails regarding the status of my refund, which I have yet to receive. Earlier this week I was actually able to speak to a person about this computer who assured me that I would receive the credit in 7 to 10 business days. I assure you, I will follow-up if I do not have my refund at that point– a full month after returning the product. So, if you do decide to buy an iBuyPower computer, I wish you well, and sincerely hope that you have a happier story to tell than mine. I decided to go with one of the larger computer manufacturers, and once again did plenty of research in advance of making the purchase.

    Read this if Windows either won’t boot or won’t activate

    I’ll start with the important part.A: If you get a “reboot and select proper boot device” error, try this first:1. Reboot and tap F2/delete to get into BIOS setup2. Switch from EZ mode to advanced (option is on bottom right)3. Select “Boot” from the top menu bar4. Select “CSM (Compatibility Support Module)”5. Find “Boot Device Control” in this menu and change the setting to “UEFI only” — NOT “UEFI/Legacy OPROM” as it was set on mine.6. Save and exit.–I couldn’t tell you exactly why this worked but it did. Windows booted up fine after that. My hypothesis is that everyone having issues with this might be having the same problem and I hope someone from IBUYPOWER reads this and passes it along, because it’s not the sort of thing the average shmoe is going to figure out on his own.B: If you can’t find your activation key1. Press the window key + x2. Open “Windows PowerShell (Admin)”3. Copy/paste this line and hit enter: wmic path SoftwareLicensingService get OA3xOriginalProductKey4. There you go, now copy/paste the key in Settings/Updates & Security/Activation/Change Product Key to activate.My computer said that it wasn’t activated because “hardware had changed” (lol it’s supposed to be brand new) but when I entered the key it activated with no issues.Hope it helps. Okay read on for full review:————So I feel like I should preface the ensuing complaints by saying that despite the issues I describe here, this machine is a delight in the speed department generally. I installed my basic apps on the SSD and everything loads in seemingly the time it takes to double-click an icon. Everything is lightning-quick. And while I’ve only had it a couple of days now, I’ve played Mass Effect Andromeda on all max settings and it’s pretty much flawless. Also this thing is very quiet. I feel like I spent the last few years with a hairdryer so that’s just great in itself. So, yeah, I’m glad I bought it.BUT: I’m fairly sure this one was already sent back, for a few reasons, the first being that the box was barely hanging on by the time it got to me. I wondered why it had been placed upside-down on my porch but soon realized it was because the bottom was practically open and held together by not nearly enough tape. Also the packing foam the instructions tell me to remove from inside the case wasn’t there, as I’ve read has happened to others. Anyhow the molded foam on the outside was sufficient and it didn’t look any worse for wear. Cable management is good; everything seems squared away. I plugged her in and fans started spinning, boot logo appeared, everything seemed good.Then I got the “reboot and select proper boot device” error. Oh great. So I go into BIOS and yeah, it sees the drives but it doesn’t see bootable media. Oh well, I read some reviews here that said Windows wasn’t installed; guess I got one of those. So I use my laptop to make a bootable WIndows 10 usb drive, insert that, and when it asks where to install it, there are my drives and parititions, including a big one on the SSD called “Windows.” Wait a minute–this thing DOES have an OS–but maybe it’s corrupted? No–when I select it, I’m told “Windows Cannot be installed to this disk. The selected disk is of the GPT partition style.”So now I have another error message to Google. I learn that GPT is a format that only works with newer PCs whose firmware supports UEFI, whereas legacy systems require MBR. So there are two solutions to this: Either reformat your drive to MBR, wiping everything on it, or get your PC to boot UEFI-style.So go back to BIOS–seeing as I suspected this is a UEFI-supporting system, and poke around. First I changed storage drives from “legacy only” to “UEFI first” and this only made it so I could no longer access the Win 10 USB drive, so I changed that back, thinking that I’d just have to wipe the drive anyway, just as a last stab in the dark made the change described above. You’d think the “UEFI/Legacy OPROM” setting would see a GPT drive but whatever–the point is that this is something that obviously should be set right before they ship it, and I wonder just how many aren’t.Anyway after that the thing booted up. Windows 10, drivers preinstalled. But now a new problem: Windows wasn’t activated and the reason given in settings was “hardware had changed.” This is a (supposedly) brand new PC, right out of the box. Product key was supposed to be on a label on the machine but I sure couldn’t find it; luckily I figured it out from the command prompt, and once entered, the problem went away.So… after all of that, like I said, this thing is amazing and everything I hoped it would be–so far. But technical hurdles like this would be insurmountable for many. I understand that to hit these price points overhead must be very low but I’m kind of amazed that these people are shipping $1,000+ computers without even booting them up once to see if they work. That UEFI/GPT issue just is not acceptable–set your BIOS right, for Pete’s sake. I would say 9 out of ten people would have wound up sending this thing back as a dud, which is probably how I wound up with it. And even beyond that, finding the product key probably would have been a tech support headache for some. Bottom line, this is a good gamble if you know what you’re doing when it comes to fixing issues like this. If you don’t, spend a little more or lower your requirements a bit and go with a more reliable operation.All in all I’m happy now. Two minor peeves which are basically the same–1. I don’t know why all of these gaming boxes have these disco lights all over them, but I knew that going in and made sure there was an option to turn them off. The software to do that is preinstalled and easy to use, but if the thing falls asleep, the lights come back on when awakened and you have to turn them off again. Annoying. [EDIT: I figured out a workaround for this–if you turn the brightness all the way down in AURA it essentially turns them off for good.] Anyway I have the glass panels facing the wall because I want a computer to do things on a screen, not distract me from those things, so it’s just the one rear fan and it’s not all that bad. 2. I haven’t bothered with the keyboard, but the mouse that comes in the box also has these dumb rinky-dink lights running around it and they can’t be turned off.I would give this thing 5 stars for how it’s performing now, but the total lack of any kind of test-drive or QC here is unacceptable.

    Check the inside first before you plug it in.

    This PC is perfect for gaming. I stream on twitch and normally play on PS4 but wanted to start doing both. It’s pretty much plug and play minus a few customizations once Win 10 starts.You HAVE to check that everything is plugged in inside, for those who gave it less than 4 stars, the PC is shipped and some things may come loose, that’s common sense. I opened it and checked all the wires, the fan and RAM then plugged it in. There’s projective plastic inside so you have to open it anyway. The top front light wasn’t on when I plugged it in so I traced the wire back, it had fallen off, I plugged it in and it works. No bloatware just regular Win 10 programs that can easily be removed in settings > apps or in Powershell.The only thing I found to be negative which is more weird was the instructions said it came with an RGB remote control but there wasn’t. I checked with customer care and they said they no longer have remotes, just download the software, this is no big deal but I’d suggest not including that paper with the shipment. Other than that it’s fine. I’ve had it since last Sunday and ran a nice high quality stream.

    Cound not get computer to boot up

    Pretty disappointing for this was my son’s first major purchase using his own credit card. Could not get the computer to boot up. Ran diagnostics and troubleshooting. Tried Start-up repair and got message that said Start-up repair unable to fix start up errors. I think we received a computer that was sent back because it did not work. The computer was not packaged as a new one should have been – missing tabs and material that the instructions said to remove prior to starting computer, and the instruction sheet was torn and looked like it was “used”. Pretty disappointed with iBUYPOWER for having a defective computer and EXTREMELY PISSED THAT AMAZON WOULD SEND US A PREVIOUS REJECTED COMPUTER.

    Very solid PC for mid range but here are a few tips

    Received the PC about 1hr ago. Was very well packaged, and styrofoamed to lock the PC in place in the iBuyPower box. Nothing was unplugged in the case, as I checked all loose parts prior to booting it up. (So I wonder why all these other customers are complaining about this? Maybe they got the renewed or open box versions?)So let’s get into it.The PC packs a good punch for the mid range. After digging into the machine, I noticed a few things that could be upgraded.PSU is the 3rd image. It’s a generic 500W bronze certified PSU, not the best since you WILL NOT be able to run two graphics cards (tested and wouldn’t recognize. Tried to add my older 1070). Maybe bump it up a few notches and get 850W of gold certified. Tbh, if you don’t plan on doing a lot of power consuming stuff on it (overclock, mining, etc), you won’t need to upgrade it. It’s definitely catered for the machine as stock.Next is the storage. No one wants an HDD anymore. Slow and archaic. The SSD is only 240gb, so you don’t have much space… And you definitely don’t want to run your games off the HDD. As you can see in the first two images, you can add another SSD next to the one mounted, and underneath the shell, you can see the HDD that’s mounted to the case and can be unscrewed from underneath to replace the HDD. So you do get some space to add storage/replace. (Again, I’m not sure why reviews state that it doesn’t have this.)Lastly, the CPU cooler/radiator is low-key a slap to the face. It should run fine? I haven’t stress tested temps, but this is one step above the stock Intel CPU fans, and that’s not very good. Maybe get a noctua or something. You can put in a copper radiator as it does have about 4-5 inches of more space on top of the CPU position. However, the 4 in-case fans that channel the airflow out the rear might make up for it.Overall, I give it a 5/5. While the price is comparable to a DIY self built PC with possibly a bit better specs, for a pre-built w/ no hassle/plug and play, no bloatware device, and visually appealing is good for the money.

    Good computer but some issues

    Hi, we just got ours today. It does not come with the remote for the LED lights-I’ve read none of them do unless you buy direct from IBUY. It did not have any packing material inside of it. Three out of 4 fans were not working due to loose and unplugged wires and 1 LED light wasn’t working. I had to remove both metal sides then trace the wires where they come out of each fan, find the plug and find the socket it plugs into. The plugs and sockets were located on the same wires. After I did that the fans worked but now 2 of the LED lights weren’t working, I found the wires and they were plugged in so I guess the bulbs blew out, my son was disappointed since we spent over $1k for this and the lights didn’t work out of the box. I feel everything should work when you first get it so not happy about that- other than those issues it seems to work fine.

    First one came in pieces

    Received this computer with the following issues:1. Only 1 thumb screw holding each side on the tower2. Only 1 of the 3 lights on front lit up3. RAM sticks were laying in the bottom and had to be reseated4. A couple power connections were loose and had to be reseated5. After fixing all of this, the second time the computer was powered up, it shut itself off and would not power back up.Other than that, this is a terrific buy.Update December 2019: the replacement computer has been a good pc so far. The original that was shipped to me was shipped to me without inside packing and had obviously been opened up before. It was most likely already returned from someone else before it was shipped to me. I find it hard to be too tough on the manufacturer for this, as that was Amazon’s mistake. If I had never gotten the first pc, I would have rated the second one 5 stars. Thus, I’m raising my original review of 1 star to 3 stars, which represents an average of the two. I hope that makes sense!
