New PC and PCSpecialist Experience

Had my new PC for almost 2 weeks now so thought it would be good to add a review
Have been wanting to upgrade for a while now and ended up making the purchase because my laptop decided that the best time to die would be the week my coursework was due so I opted for one of the next day systems.
I actually really like the specs of it, the only thing I would change however is the network adapter but that's quite an easy part to replace

Just my luck However that the day after I ordered it they dropped the price of it by £10


The box had a very minor dent however I'm sure this happens to a lot of packages. Arrived exactly when it said it would be so I wasn't stuck waiting around

The Computer itself performs amazingly, especially compared to what I had been using before, I'm actually able to play my entire steam library now. The startup time has been really impressive too, not sure why I didn't go for an SSD years ago

The RGB lights in the case look great, but it's a shame that the fans don't sync with asus aura and are instead controlled using an RF Wireless remote
Two of the led's on each fan also seem to be slow to update meaning that they noticeably lag behind making any two color preset not usable

However this isn't as noticeable while using the rainbow default

Overall very happy with the system
