You know I just gotta say they do a crappy job cabling there pre-builts. God I think HP does a better job on cable management. I mean hell, if I'm gonna pay $2500 for a tower it better look damn nice inside and out!

It's an Intel X58 and you can disable thermal protection on it, so yes it can be overclocked.

edit: Sorry, board is Asus, but can still be overclocked

I've had a terrible experience with Cyberpower - and Ibuypower is supposed to be even worse. STAY AWAY!

And no, the Cybepower UPS is a different company AFAIK.

My PC was from Cyber Power and I did not have one bad experience at all out of the whole deal. I know a lot of people do have issues with them though. Although, I did order some cheaper pieces in it so I could upgrade myself here and there. Although I did not have a bad experience, I will definetely build from scratch myself next time around.

Specifically this one:

I have that. That's Cyberpower. Not CyberpowerPC. Notice you can't purchase that UPS on CyberpowerPC's site.

Back to CyberpowerPC, they don't even give you a "real" version of windows. As in, it's crippled in some ways (like user account creation/management) and doesn't have the repair feature.

Looking at those pics...i thought the PSU was supposed to be installed upside down in a case like that, so the fan was facing upwards. Looks like the fan is facing down in the pic...couldn't be good for airflow in the PSU.

Ya, you don't get a windows disc, just a recovery disc that reloads everything (kinda sucks). Vista itself doesnt seem to be missing anything though, it looks to be the regular oem version of vista. Unless I am missing something I never uses.

Try reformatting and setting up multiple user accounts with passwords. It doesn't do it right at all. Also, my 64 bit disc only saw 3GB of RAM, but when i used my friend's home premium disk with my key (i think this is legal) it worked fine.
