    Let me start out by saying that like many of you, I too wanted to build a custom PC. I wanted to be able to pick out my components and design it how I wanted and needed. However, like many of you, I could not find a decent price on a Nvidia graphics card. Knowing I wanted to do 4K gaming, I knew that the RTX 3080 TI was going to be my best bet. When shopping for that card on its own, it was going for nearly $2,000 by itself, sometimes more if the scalpers were selling it. This is the sole reason that I ended up buying a pre-built PC, it ended up costing much less. Admittedly, I bought this PC when it was on sale for nearly $600 off, which brought my total down to around $2,600. At over $3,000, it might still be worth building your own custom PC and finding a GPU within your budget. My first impressions of this PC were wow, it is actually a really solid build. Not only is it solid, the case is very nice aesthetically when it is off and even better when it is on and lit up. I was in the market for the Corsair 4000X Airflow RGB PC case and while that case was nicer overall, the Trace 5 MR is not far behind. It did come pre-installed with Windows 11, which was disappointing, but I ended up installing Windows 10 without any issues. When setting up Windows 11, it pretends you require the internet, but you do not, as you can bypass it. If this is important to you, just run a Google search. When I first launched into Windows 11, it was missing a Nvidia driver, but it still fired up fine with no display issues. It is recommended you download the latest Nvidia driver directly from Nvidia and not through the Windows updater. All of the system’s RGB lighting is controlled by ASRock Polychrome RGB and it’s very simple to use. There are 3x 120mm fans on the front for the intake, 120mm fan on the back for exhaust and a 240mm AIO on the top as an exhaust. When benchmarking, all temperatures stayed normal and in a healthy range. As a note, the AIO does not have any RGB capabilities. Part of the reluctance for us to purchase a pre-built is that we do not know what components come with it specifically. This will always be the case with a pre-built system, but I’ve listed the specific components mine came with below, which can obviously vary. –Drive: WD Blue SN550 NVMe SSD –GPU: Asus ROG RTX 3080 TI (SKU 6466932) –Motherboard: ASRock Z590-C/ac –PC Case: iBUYPOWER Trace 5 MR –RAM: Adata XPG Spectrix BW41 TUF Gaming Limited Edition RGB 3,200MHz My first upgrade was to a PCIe 4.0 NVMe. I purchased the 2TB Corsair MP600 Pro XT and let me tell you, it is ridiculously faster than what it came with. Quick benchmarks; WD – 2,465.83 SEQ read MB/s & 2,138.89 SEQ write MB/s vs. Corsair – 6,998.27 SEQ read MB/s & 6,805.95 SEQ write MB/s. Upgrading to any PCIe NVMe drive is going to blow away what this PC comes with. Additionally upgrades were doubling RAM to 32GB – I purchased the same RAM it came with (only in black, not white) and bought the 16GB (2 x 8GB modules) from Amazon. Lastly, I purchased a 360mm AIO for front mounting to the case to ensure nothing but cooler air is being brought into the case. Speaking of case, here are its details and capabilities: PC Case Details: –Front Fans: 3x 120mm (aRGB included) –Top Fan: 3x 120mm or 2x140mm –Rear Fan: 1x 120mm (aRGB included) –Front Radiator Support: 120mm, 240mm or 360mm –Top Radiator Support: 120mm, 240mm, 360mm, 140mm or 280mm –Rear Radiator Support: 120mm –GPU Clearance: 380mm –Dimensions: 18.9” x 8.7” x 19.3” (LxWxH) While this PC is great, it is not perfect. Let me go over some areas that I would have liked to see improvements. –Fans don’t seem to move a lot of air. I increased their RPM and they got loud but still nothing over the top for the volume of air being moved. –AIO is top mount with no RGB on the fans, but does have RGB on the CPU cooler. This does not push out a lot of air either and I would prefer a front mount AIO with air passing over a radiator before it was brought into the case. –NVMe SSD is fine for general use but not ideal for gaming performance or high I/O related workloads. –Cabling was sufficient, not perfect, but that is okay. This case does not have great wiring channels. –16GB of RAM @ a $3,000+ PC seems kind of stingy but I get it, everything is more expensive these days. –11th Gen Intel is meh at best. I wanted AMD but I more-so wanted a 3080 TI. I will be upgrading the CPU in the next couple of years. For comparison purposes, this PC overall feels really sturdy and has a premium feel to it. I purchased a pre-built competitor of theirs prior to this one and it was very cheap feeling and came cracked. Without naming the company, it was with a 5900x, RTX 3080 and in the same price range. I’m overall very pleased and happy with this purchase and I would 100% recommend it. You have rooms for upgrades within this purchase and will have a very solid PC for gaming, editing, Plex or any other use for years to come.

    Good Machine for experienced users

    Solid machine, great brand name card in it, which was the allure for me. I traditionally build my own, but Covid ruined that hobby. Couple of things for the QC team at IBP/ other customers: 1. Graphics card mounting: Mine is the gigabyte card, and I found the card wasn’t aligned correctly with the back of the case. This made it almost impossible to get the DP cables in without adjustment. Not a big deal, but the less tech experience people would force them in and risk breaking the card. 2. BIOS settings: found they these were mid configured, not allowing the processor to clock over base clock, even with turbo boost enabled. Couple of options to switch and it was turbo’ing the way it should be. Again, if you’re good with tech, this shouldn’t be an issue. More disappointing that they don’t come preconfigured. 3. (Biggest) Thermal Paste: not sure if they use a factory thermal pad or just poor application, but dang. Thing was running pretty hot. Not enough to throttle but I knew something was up because the AIO is pretty good. Like 155f or so. Removed the aio, applied some nt-h2 and dropped the temps, under load to about 135f max. Huge difference. I think IBP should adjust how they do this, because parts of the ihs remained bare. Those are not picks. It’s a great little system. Air flow seems more than adequate

    I love this computer! Everything has worked flawlessly. I bought this on the flash sale for $2800 dollars! Such a great purchase. I will upgrade the ram at later date but for now it’s fine. I use this computer strictly for gaming and the 3080ti is awesome. I’ve had very stable frame rates and the gpu temps haven’t gone above 75 Celsius! If your looking at this computer it’s great value for what you get. Also the case looks better in person! Will post some pictures. What you see is what you get!

    The ssd boots up my PC faster than my internet connection connects. I'm playing God of war at 4k, maxed out graphic settings at a locked 60fps. I just wish i would've got a 2tb model instead of 1tb because it fills up fat with the games. I'm playing games like Control and Ghostrunner at high frame rates and so far everything I've thrown at it it's been handling it well. I might pick up the warranty plan but I'm undecided right now. I got it on sale for $2,700 and in this day and age is a steal. Every time I turn it on on an amd icon pops up and i have to close it. If it wasn't for the pop up and low storage on the PC I would've given it a 5 overall.

    Great gaming PC!

    Awesome gaming PC! Not very loud and I got used to the RGB lighting (which is nice). Finding the HDD bay was a bit of a pain. There's plenty of cabling to add it to the system (sans SATA cable) but the bay is hidden on the BOTTOM of the machine behind the BACK DOOR. Got an 8TB in eventually and happily! System needs additional RAM. I bought CORSAIR Vengeance RGB PRO 16GB (2PK 8GB) ​Best Buy SKU 6256216 ​since it's nearly the same specs as what's included. So far it handles everything I've thrown at it in 4K without a hiccup! The keyboard is a bit cheap, however. The left shift key sticks (the one used in gaming a lot) and the paint rubs off easily (see attached. I'll probably replace that. Plus, and not that I've tried hard to figure it out, I don't know if there's a way to turn off the RGB lighting on it. Oh well, I found a pleasing stable setting instead.

    Great system, not so great packaging

    Posted .

    Great specs, runs wonderfully. Only reason I'm not giving this 5 stars is the packaging. There were multiple stickers on the case which left residue, one in particular on the motherboard plate that I couldn't get off. Didn't want to risk getting any rubbing alcohol in the connectors so it's just kind of ugly. For the kind of money spent on a product like this I would expect a little more thought be put in placing the wrong kind of stickers on places that aren't easy to clean/remove.

    Gigabyte "Eagle" 3080ti

    Fantastic system. I got mine on the Black Friday sale; still a touch overpriced, but given the rarity and current 2nd hand market on the 3080ti - this is actually a pretty great deal. Mine came with a Gigabyte "Eagle" 3080ti - which is so far performing well. Out of the box everything else is working and working well, which can sometimes be an issue with prebuilts being shipped. Snatch this one on sale if you can! Not my first from iBuypower and wont be my last, I'm sure!

    Got a great deal on this PC which included a 3080TI. This was my first PC and was a little nervous about building my own so I decided to go with a pre-built. Even though I have never build a PC I am very familiar with what goes into building a PC and the components within. When I received the PC all components were attached snuggly and wire management was nicely done. They even placed RAM sticks in properly allowing for dual channel. I am very pleased with this product, and would highly suggest it to anyone looking to enter the high-end PC market

    Great PC for the price, actually thought was a high price, paid $3199 the total price plus 7% tax over it and thought was so expensive, then when I opened it, it came with a ASUS TUF 3080 TI, the GPU cost 1999 itself, so actually I paid 1200 for the other pc parts, and that’s a great deal! The only thing I had to upgrade was the memory, I would recommend Corsair Dominators 3600MHz, and in the future to get a better power supply and maybe a ASUS ROG motherboard, but the PC works great! Highly recommend it!

    Resealed Products (Listed as New) - BUYERS BEWARE

    |
    Posted .
    Owned for less than 1 week when reviewed.

    Let's level here, I got these on a black Friday deal for $2775 out the door, so I of course bought 3 as I already own one and it works GREAT. When this works well, it's one of the top mining/gaming rigs you can buy on the market. When Best Buy reseals them and lists them as new (not refurbished) they are literally scamming you. All three computers showed signs PC one arrived wide open and fedex had handed me parts that fell out like the power cable, great start! The first one had an ASUS RTX graphics card, not the gigbyte RTX that iBuypower uses. I can't tell you the model, because it was completely dead, PC two had the right graphics card, but it was burned out by Crypto miners and as a fun bonus, would not even connect with the motherboard let alone the graphics card. PC would not even start. PC three was hopeful, but it booted up on Windows 11 vs 10 (these offer you the option unless someone installed it already). Everything seemed to work until I put the slightest amount of load through the graphics card would crash the display flicker the screen then out right die. MAKE SURE YOUR COMPUTERS ARE SEALED EVEN IF THEY SAY NEW. If they are opened, 100% guaranteed to have been burned out by data miners.

    Owned for 3 weeks when reviewed.

    Bought the pc 3 weeks ago and early this morning (Oct7th,2020) something died on it. Read other reviews and seems like others are having similar issue. Potential motherboard or gpu failure. Will investigate immediately. $3k desktop dies in 3 weeks feelsbadman.

    Really satisfied

    Owned for 1 month when reviewed.

    Had it for about a month now and it's been a great purchase. It replaced my previous PC which I built myself for around $1k some years ago; there was nothing wrong with it and it ran the latest triple A's with absolutely no issues, but I do prefer to upgrade every few years to not stay too far behind in tech. This should last me another good few more years before I feel the need to upgrade again. I work a lot and would rather spend my limited off time just jumping into gaming instead of having to camp websites for decently priced hardware and then take the time setting it up, and for that reason buying a pre-built was worth it to me. I probably spend 4 or 5 hours a day on average gaming, watching videos, and chatting with friends all at once. My set up has 3 screens and I'll have YouTube, discord, and a game running altogether smoothly at any given time. The design is clean and nice to look at. I definitely recommend iBuyPower and will likely purchase from them in the future.
