Better hope it arrives by Friday if you want to get in on that free Windows 10 upgrade.

I own one and have mentioned it in past threads. It goes on sale for $429 refurb often and its an ok deal at that price.

You aren't going to be able to fit a long gpu in it without some work. The front usb/audio connectors are in the way and you'll have to move the hard drive. For a tall card you might have to cut the drive cage.

It needs a power supply upgrade and a rear 92mm fan installed. Its factory setup is 100% case ventilation through the little fan in the cheap 300w power supply. It has a good size intake grate on the side, but zero intake through the front/bottom so I drilled out the bottom of the front panel so some air flows over the drives.

A shortie gpu will fit without a big hassle. Basically the ones where they're about 1.5" past the end of the pcie connector.

The 4790 is a capable cpu. It runs neck and neck with the 6700 in many benchmarks. The 6700's gpu is far better if you're planning on htpc use with the igpu. The hd 530 in the 6700 encodes and decodes h.265 while the hd 4600 in the 4790 won't.

I plunked a good 400w supply and SSD in it that I had, mounted a spare 92mm rear fan and drilled out the plastic just ahead of the front foot on the bottom. Its quiet, has good power and I can stick a short 950/960 or upgrade the PS to a larger one and go with a short 970 or 1070. Decent daily driver or htpc with a 950 if you're going to do h.265 stuff. It can do the encode/decode on the cpu but you're going to use a lot of electricity if you do a lot of it.

I wouldn't pay this much for it though. Its really made to be a standard business box without a lot of upgradability. Two ram slots, three sata ports and very cramped mobo although the case has some room.

Costco was selling these and dumped a bunch about a year ago. My bet is that these are leftovers and the refurbs are clean returns. Mine had <3 hours on the drive and many others report 0-5 hours on the system. Its very slow running on the included HD, which is a western digital model.

It has a TON of crapware installed on it and just uninstalling it wasn't effective. A fair amount of stuff was left on the drive, there were scheduled tasks that weren't removed, etc. I ended up reinstalling win10 on it from a usb drive and it was fine after that.

^^ Thanks for your time to post the details. But as per my understanding, this one is a new one, not a refurbished one and comes with full 1 year of warranty. Still will it have some of the problems you have mentioned?

Sounds good for an old client of mine who needs something basic, after clearing the bloat...
