This is a NEW, not a refurbished system. A similar desktop that was on sale previously was a refurbished unit.

Got it from last Refurbished Deal for $430.
Be aware: Power Supply is LiteOn PS-6301-08A3 300W with no video card connectors, WD10EZEX HDD (with 61 power on hours on it), Acer CPU fan and heatsink.
Main problem with motherboard: ONLY 2 DDR3 slots, 3 SATA III ports, minimum options BIOS build specially for Acer.
No additional fans except CPU (there are holes for 65mm fan on the back, I think).
Nice thing about: case has 2 trays for HDD with 2.5” holes precut, so additional SSD installation is available.
Ended up replacing power to TR-500 and adding MKNSSDE3480GB.

This is really good information, thanks. Although I'd say the lack of video card power connectors is a complete non-issue. At 300W, the included power supply doesn't have the extra wattage to power any thing beyond the base set up. So the lack of a way to physically wire it to a power hungry video card is a moot point.

So with the BIOS limitations and only two DDR3 memory slots, what say the masses? Is this rig a good value at $480?

I got one of these for $429 a few weeks ago. If you look around here, you'll see that they go on sale about every 3 weeks for that price.

The rear fan is a 92mm and you'll want to put one in. The entirety of the case ventilation is what's sucked through the power supply. Whoever thought an i7-4790 with 12g ram and a couple of drives should get pulled through the PS with an 80mm fan should be prevented from ever designing a computer system again. You'll also need a four pin fan splitter as there is only one fan connector on the motherboard. I had some already but you can find them on amazon or newegg. Plug the cpu fan into the four pin pigtail and the 92mm fan into the three pin.

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product...UTF8&psc=1


A PS replacement with something with a larger fan is recommended, even if you're not going to put in a gpu.

The way the mobo and case is laid out pretty much prohibits anything other than a shortie (mini itx) type card. Many 950's, 960's, there is a mini 970 and a mini 1070 coming out. The usb connector on the motherboard, the drive cage and some other stuff is all in the way of a full size card.

There are no vent holes in the front, the only intake is a large side panel mesh. I cut a slot on the bottom of the plastic front underneath where the front rubber foot is. My drive temps dropped 8 degrees after that.

So for $429 with a 92mm fan I had laying around, a spare 400w bronze supply and an extra SSD I had and that little bit of drilling made this a pretty good, quiet, decent performing machine.

There is also a boatload of acer crapware on it. So plan on reinstalling windows from a usb stick.

If you're going to run it hard at or near 100% cpu utilization you might want a water cooler or better fan. It hits 65C after 5 minutes of stress testing and kept getting warmer.

Mine had zero hours on the drive and was clean inside. Costco dumped tons of these a few months ago and I suspect these are the returns. Good deal for $429. I don't think I'd spend $479. Too many compromises.

So standard length 970 won't fit in this?

You'll have to do some work. The usb front panel connector is big, tall and thick and would get in the way of many large two slot/thick graphics cards. You could disconnect that and skip the front panel connectors or I saw an offset cable that'd work for about $15. The mini pcie m.2 slot with the wireless card is right next to the pcie slot and you'd have to fiddle with the antenna wires or remove it. The front panel audio connector is right next to the pcie slot and its connector is also pretty inflexible. The hard drive is mounted so it'd be in the way of a long/tall card but there's an empty bay next to it and the cables are long enough to move it.

This is a business box, not meant for a lot of expansion. You could get a shortie card in there without too much but a long card looks like it'd be a tight fit even if you could do something with the front panel connections.
