Description

TLDR. First off, I apologize to PCMR for my transgression of buying a prebuilt. With that being said, I saved around $350-$400. I did however, spend 2-3 hours cable managing and almost ruined the CPU in the process lul. (LSS: Never worked with an AIO before and accidentally ended up ripping the CPU out of the socket due to dry thermal paste facepalm. Surprisingly the only damage I noticed was a few bent pins in the upper right hand corner; just had to bend them back into place NBD. But I also somehow got thermal paste on a few CPU pins and a tiny bit in the socket mega facepalm... Pro-Tip: 91% isopropyl is your best friend in these situations. Rubbing alcohol + Toothbrush and I was back in business... POST = Great Success).

......

Anyways, I ordered through shopmyexchange.com so I was able to forgo taxes and shipping costs (If you or a family member are military/veteran, I HIGHLY RECOMMEND).

[Guesstimated for some of the phased out items in the Parts List]

Items Purchased via Craigslist:

-Samsung 850 Pro 128GB (x2) $50 for both

-Gigabyte GTX 1060 G1 (6GB): $150

-Dell S2316M 23" 1080p Monitor: $60

Already Owned:

-Seagate Barracuda 1.5TB (Mine is actually a 2.5" I pulled from an external... very noisy)

-Microsoft Windows 10 Pro (Pulled from a Dell off Craigslist)

-Rii K18 Keyboard/Trackpad (The touchpad is garbage, don't buy this--- just pay $5 more for a Logitech)

-Logitech M557 Bluetooth Mouse

-Photive ph-bt1000 Bluetooth Speaker

Purchased 31AUG and Received 17SEP (Did not get processed until 04SEP due to Labor Day Weekend).

Everything was in tact and packaged well. Trust me, I was hesitant after reading some of the reviews online, but for the price and with my prior building experience/google I was prepared to take a chance.

You also get some other little knick-knack peripherals i.e. "gaming" mice, keyboards, extra pci-e wireless card/adapter, etc---basically stuff that's nice to have but sucks having to order individually.

Not everything was gravy however, I had to RMA the ADATA NVME SSD due to a corrupted drive. I believe I read some reviews that this particular model is known to have these issues...

All in all, I think I got a pretty decent deal. Me likey the RGBs and the Processing/Graphical power in this rig are more than enough for my needs. Will probably just update CPU when Zen 2+ launches.

Comments/Criticisms are more than welcome.

Cost of the CyberPowerPC: $949.05

Total Cost of Build: $1209.05

Just slap some more pepes or troll faces and it would be even better. In fact...

honestly, pga socket cpus always have and always will come out of their sockets with cpu coolers. It is unavoidable.

Yeah, I had no idea. It would have been nice to have known that Twist Pro-Tip for sure.

I guess I have just been dealing with it for many years now. I haven't ever had an issue, so I never bothered to change my ways

Not a fan of the ram it is kinda weird it is red and also RGB .... But it is not my build so if you like than whatever. How are the case fans though? I want to get some of those same ones for my next build. Also how is the LED strip? I might grab one of those as well if the adhesive and RGB selection is good.

Yeah, the RAM is eventually going to get replaced. Waiting for Zen 2 to drop and I'll probably upgrade CPU, RAM, Storage and possibly GPU. The LED strip isn't the exact one I have listed from Amazon-- it's something that CyberPower put in but I'm not 100% sure of the exact brand. Any magnetic RGB strip should be fine though-- they're nice.

Case fans were replaced for (2x120mm) Noise Blocker Fans due to Apevia RGB Fans being too loud (fan controller was plugged directly into the PSU rather than the MOBO). I'd recommend something that connects directly to the MOBO so you can control the fan curve via BIOS.

it was just a joke, although i do question the use of the site that is ultimately about picking parts and building a pc, then being used to share a pc that was just bought outright pre-built.
