Summary: I have had this for only 6 days, and from the start nothing but trouble. No matter what Web browser I have going, it crasher with in 4 min. Also no mater what app I have going it also crashes with in a few min. Now today the video card has stopped working. Called Cyberpower and they will fix it and sent a prepaid UPS shipping label. They said it will take up to 7 days after they get it back to send it.... I will post when it's said and done.
Summary: This machine has served me well since January 2013 when I purchased it. Then something unimaginable happened, it caught fire! Thank god I was in my office when it happened and we were able to unplug it and take it outside the building. I have not looked into the problem completely yet, but just pulling the cover and taking a quick look, the hard drive power supply cord caught fire. So my guess is the Hard Drive took a huge dump and shorted out the computer.
Summary: I use this processor in a storage server/game machine and have no complaints. Even though this processor is at the bottom of the lot in it's class it holds it's own for gaming on EVE and doing the things I need as a programmer/developer. It is the right price as well.
Summary: It was everything I was looking for. Aside from the lacking graphics card which I replaced a few days later with a geforce gtx 760 and a new power supply (evga bronze 600) I would suggest this to anyone wanting an easy way to break into the building scene of the PC world. Plus the thing looks damn cool with all the red lights and whatnot.
Summary: This computer is a great machine. Aside from needing to upgrade the NVIDIA graphics card so that you can play games a bit better, even though the name says Gamer Ultra it should have at least a 4GB or higher for graphics and at least an i5 processor in it, (HINT HINT) it is a good computer.
Summary: This Has Been Used Now For One Year! The AMD FX 4100 Processors ROCK. This Was A Great Improvement Over The 1-Core That My HP Came With. Easy To Install No Searching For New Hardware, Just Plug In And Go,No Problems At All.Thinking About It, DON'T Just Get It, Check You're Power Supply To Be Sure It's Enough For This CPU.
Summary: The processor is great for a medium budget build but do be careful with the kind of motherboard you choose for it. Certain motherboards have little to no heat distribution for the VRM's which this and other higher end AMD FX processors are known to heat up. This will almost definitely result in a spike in temperature readings which might report as "255'C" or errors. This will result in the board either shutting down or throttling.
