    Posted: 14 Feb 2019 at 4:23am

Alright so after a week of research and getting community feedback I have finally placed my order for a new PC, now I've got to wait a couple of weeks for it to be built, tested and shipped to me. I'm excited to get it home and experience it but also anxious, I have the fear that it may arrive and have issues. I have known people to purchase from CPPC in the past and although they have had a couple of minor issues, generally they have been very pleased with their purchase, so I'm confidant CPPC will take good care of my baby. I'll be posting my experience step by step as I go through this adventure till the end. 

 

*** Day 1 ***

My order has been placed with an estimated ship date of Wed 2/27/19 and currently is in the order received stage, I have notified my CC company to notify them of the large purchase so their should be no issues with payment delays. Below is the build I purchased, excellent system for a good price in my opinion.

 

Update 1 - Just received my first contact email from my Sales Rep: Danny H. advising me that he would be my point of contact through this process and stating my order has been received.

 

Update 2 - Well sadly even though I contacted my Credit Card Company twice and notified them of the possible charge they still stopped it due to possible fraud risk which was just upsetting. My Sales Rep: Danny was very understanding and was willing to work with myself and my Credit Card Company in order to get the charge approved and the order authorized.

 

*** Day 2 - 5 ***

Nothing to really report on at this time. The payment issue was resolved and the order has been authorized and is currently sitting in the warehouse while they gather and verify all the parts needed to assemble the PC. Hopefully everything is in stock and I don't need to make any changes or wait for parts to be ordered.

 

*** Day 6 ***

Well I'm happy to announce my PC has passed the warehouse phase, it seems everything was in stock and should work together well. I was worried something may have been out of stock or they were so backed up it would take longer. Everything seems to be going well and I'm so excited and can't wait to get my PC home to start playing with.


*** Day 7 ***

I did not receive an email update but thankfully I have been checking my order status daily. According to the order status page it looks like my PC has been assembled and has entered the Quality Control Phase. I'm glad there were no issues with assembly stage and hope they did a good job and it passes Quality Control.


*** Day 8 ***

It looks like my PC passed the first Quality Control check and has moved into the Final Quality Control check. Hoping they will get everything processed and shipped out before the weekend, if not will have to wait for it to be shipped on Monday. Did not receive an email update but I'm guessing they don't provide an email update until fully finished with the Quality Control stages.

Good solid build. Glad to see you did your research.

In total we have bought 6 CPC systems over about 8 years. One was a laptop. We had issues with 2 of them, had to send one back for a damaged case, one had a banged up hot swap drive (CP shipped us a new one). One other minor issue that got resolved.

My sons was the most recent and it had an AMD GPU go out. Since it was an OEM GPU it wasn't covered by the manufactures warranty. We replaced it with an Nvidia 1070 (should have stuck with Nvidia in the first place).

Here is a list compiled form things I picked up over the years. It's a good first boot list. When you get your system like you said let us know and post some pictures.


Take plenty of pictures before during & after the unboxing in case there is damage.

Remove all packing, verify all components are seated & plugged in.

Connect monitor, keyboard, mouse and internet only.

Fire it up, finish OS install, GPU drivers & MOBO drivers. Register the OS.

Download Speed Fan or HWI monitor and run during all tests to monitor temps. 
All the programs listed are free, make sure you download directly from their site
or at someplace like Major Geeks.

Download and create a bootable flash drive or CD of Memtest. Run it to verify your RAM has no errors. 
A bad sector or 2 can cause all sorts of weird issues. If it passes move on. If not find the bad stick 
and temporarily remove it.

Download and run Intel Burn In on standard, for a general stress test.

Download and run Furmark to stress the GPU.

If all is well update the OS and drivers.

Install your most used programs. 

Now I suggest "cloning" your HD and re-clone every few months or so. Then just disconnect the clone drive.
I have found out the hard way what you need to go through if a C drive fails and the multiple days
it takes to get set up again. If something does happen in minutes your back up and running
with a minimal amount of data to get back.

If you decide not to clone, at least make a set of recovery disks or back up your drive.

Finish installing printers, etc.

Your ready to go.  
Remember valor, honor, independence, family & clan; I do whenever I hear the ceol mor, the "great music" of the Highland bagpipe. I swear upon the holy iron of my dirk that I will not forget.
