      Answer

      It has almost the best of everything. I added another fan and 16gb more memory. Cheaper than buying the parts and building yourself. Shipping and support are horrible. Value is good.

  • Question
    The NVIDIA 1080 Ti has 4 HDMI ports, 1 at 4K 60fps, 2 at 4K 120 fps, 1 at 8K 60fps. Are all of the ports available on this iBUYPOWER computer? Or does it have just 1 HDMI port? It would be a bit saddening if it has only 1 HDMI port available from the card   (3 Answers)

      Answer

      Obvious troll question, but I'll feed you, for the sake of others who might get confused by your question. All GTX 1080 TI Founder Edition card have 1 HDMI input and 3 Displayport inputs. You might find another HDMI on some custom cards from board partners such as Asus with their Strix card, MSI, or Gigabyte, but none of them have 4 HDMI ports. And folks, what he is saying about FPS is also a troll. FPS will be governed by your settings and system, not by these hardware ports.

      What is better for gaming a 3TB hard drive or 2TB hard drive I can't decide to buy this model or the BB5203EA?   (3 Answers)

        Answer

        I don't want to sound like a smartypants, but more space is always better, but the hard drive doesn't really affect your performance. The difference between this one and the BB5203EA model is that this one has a 1080 ti (best graphics card on the market right now), and that one has a 1080 (not the ti). It is also using a ryzen 1800x processor, which has a little less power than intel i7 7700k (kaby lake). I don't actually have any personal experience with Ryzen, as it's VERY new. I know it didn't quite meet expectations in some tests, so keep that in mind when considering. However, Kaby Lake has had issues with overheating if overclocked, so if you want to get more than 4.2ghz, you might have an issue. I personally haven't even had the need to overclock mine, and I can run everything with max settings fine. I play TERA quite a lot and get 80 fps normally. Other games I get a lot more. So in my opinion, get this one. Or wait until intel drops the i9, and get something with that. Ryzen is just too new for me to be able to recommend. Hope that helps!

        Yes, it's the founders edition. It's ugly as sin, but works like a charm. I've found if I set the LEDs to rainbow, it makes it look a little nicer.

      Is the SSD in this system an NVME or SATA? Whats the speed of the drive?   (2 Answers)

        Answer

        It's a 250 GB SATA SSD by WD Blue, and also has a 3TB Mechanical HDD that I believe is a 7200RPM Toshiba. So no NVME but the motherboard has 2 NVME slots so you can add one. I added two, one small one dedicated to OS and a 1TB for games. They didn't include any standoffs or M2 screws but you can order those online fairly cheap.

        Is the led red on the inside? if not, are you able to change the color to red?   (1 Answer)

        • Answer

          No. the color is all white inside (and outside of the case) which is necessary to see anything on the internal, clear LCD panel. But, you could just put up a red wallpaper on the side display, because the internal LCD is basically a second screen. It doesn't wash out the color badly but don't expect it to be very vibrant as true LEDs. For instance, if you made the side panel wallpaper pure black, it does a relatively good job at making the internals difficult to see and filters a lot of the light out, but don't expect pure opaque and as far as I saw in Windows, there is no option to control the intensity of the LEDs either (or off/on.) Also, there is a TON of lightbleed around the LED door and case access. So unless you seal it better, you will always see white around the door.

            Yes. My system was supposed to have a Windows Product Key on the case (pamphlet says the side or back) but it was not placed on mine at all, so I did have to call iBP Customer Service and they had a key for the iBP serial number of the system.

            Is there enough spare room in the case to fit in a Samsung 850 EVO 500GB (Model #: MZ-75E500B) in addition to the default 240GB, or would I have to take the original out and put the new one in? Also, what adapter should I use since the SSD is 2.5 inches?   (2 Answers)
