Hello everyone, this is my first time posting on the CP forum. I have purchased a desktop from CP before when I was younger for like $500 and I loved it for what it did, but that was many years ago. Now I am upgrading and I would like to get some feedback about what I purchased and when you think my PC will arrive. I've been reading all over this forum so I figured why keep reading why don't I write a little.

So first of all what do you think of my build? I will put specs below.

Second, after reading this forum I decided to swap the standard PSU for an Enermax PSU (a little more reliable), but then they opened up a sub-order for me with a different warehouse date yet the same shipping date... is this common?

Thanks for any and all input, have a great day!

Pretty good.

Your CPU is fine. I did see it is not a "K" series. The K series  is capable of hyperthreading, which turns the 45 cores into a virtual 8 cores better for overclocking and multi tasking.

Did you use checkout code spring0410 for 5% off.

Cheap case fans are not that reliable, but easy to change if they go out.

The 120mm sealed CPU cooler is OK for general use. I would suggest going with push-pull fans to provide better cooling.

Thanks for the feedback GAN.

I know it isn't a K series, yet I just figured the K was for overclocking which I'm not that interested in, mainly because I don't trust myself with that.

Yes I did use the code!! Saved me $100!!

I wasn't sure which case fans to get so I got cheap ones because I knew they were easy to exchange.

When you say "120mm sealed CPU cooler" are you referring to the Corsair H60?

Thanks so much for the advice and quick response!

Yes the corsair H60

A non-K series CPu is fine and yes is needed to overclock. There are other advantages with the K series.

OK thanks so you recommend upgrading the cooling to a push pull liquid cooler. That sounds simple enough, I appreciate it. Do you think it is strange they haven't entered the assembly process yet when it is expected to ship in less than a week? I know it is often said that they are bad at updating the status, but I am just excited and hope it comes ASAP you know.

CP is real bad about updating the status. Sometimes you may get a notice from UPS for a tracking number before CP posts it's ready. You may see it's in assembly then the next day done and tested.

You should be fine. In a busier time of the year back orders may happen, but your in the slower season.

From the Item # you appear to have "standard" fans for the case and the radiator.  Noisy and poor quality!

With CyberPower, choose one of the alternatives offered in ordering most liquid coolers.


If you are ordering from Amazon or Newegg, seach for "120mm radiator fan" (no quotes) and choose one which suits your preferences.
