Hellion FX Hexa-Core Win 8
This is no April Fool..... An amazing value!
This is no April fools joke. I really enjoy my new CybertronPC computer. I had been trying to get the most out of my 8 year old laptop that had seen better days and I was worried that I would not find a computer that would fit my budget and be a screamer. I had priced many Intel based machines and just could not convince myself that I wanted to part with mega-bucks just to get some amount of horsepower in a machine. In my search, I decided to widen my search to AMD based machines and this one popped up. It caught my eye quick, 6 cores at under $800????? I had to step back and look in to this a bit more. I perused the reviews and was impressed that they seem to answer everyone with a positive attitude and if there was an issue, provided their contact info to correct the problem. I like that kind of detail. I told myself that this was it, so I placed the order and patiently waited for its arrival. When it was received, it was packed well and arrived intact. I patiently unboxed it and attached the needed peripherals to see if this baby would power up and play. Boy did it play, it was up and running in less than half an hour. I was still a bit cautious to whether I had made the right decision and decided I will wait a week to make my final decision. Let me say that you'd have to be silly to pass this one up. I am amazed with the performance and value. I am also glad that Amazon was able to deliver it quick and offer a purchasable 4 year warranty to boot.I made the right decision.
My 17 Y/O Gaming Child Has Had This System Up & @Speeds With Multiple Games, (Mod & Not) Since Christmas With No (Except A Couple User) Error(s)..
Great Customer Service
(2/24/15) I bought the computer a couple weeks ago and was really excited since I never had a heavy duty computer before. The day it arrived I started setting it up and it seemed to be taking forever to load. After about 2 hours I realized the screen froze. I reset the computer and tried again, but it still couldn't get through the setup without freezing up. After several hours of frustration I called Cybertron (they seemed helpful and nice), they had me try reinstalling the OS but the computer still couldn't get through it without freezing up. They had me send the computer back in and told me they would send me a new one as soon as mine was shipped out. It took over a week for the new computer to get to me (almost three weeks after I had originally ordered the computer). The new one seemed to be working fine, but it has started crashing and freezing just like the previous computer (although not nearly as often, but still enough to be annoying). I don't have the time to send the computer back in since I need it for my classes, but I will never buy another product from Cybertron again, regardless of how good their support seemed to be, I don't have time to deal with a crappy computer.Update (3/26/15): Ive been talking back and forth with the technical support for a couple days now and theyve been trying to figure out what is wrong with my PC. Turns out the processor is overheating since it may have been damaged during shipping. They are going to have me ship the PC back to fix it for me, hopefully when it gets sent back it will be working better. I upped my rating from 1 to 3 stars because of their customer service, and I will probably change to five stars if they can get the PC working soon.
Great specs for the price
worked like a charm does everything i want and more runs all games on high settings. Im sure there are some out there that would need better components to get top of the line performance but this is one of the better gaming pc's ive bough in recent years. runs cold and lots of air flow. Well rounded machine.
A great gaming computer ( in my opinion )
This was a Christmas gift for my son......it arrived quickly, was packaged really well. It has been a great gaming computer, no complaints. The price point was nice, I looked at several other gaming computers that were more expensive, but just couldn't see paying all that much more, if ......I could find a comparable one at a better price. It is an A+ gaming computer in my opinion. We are so pleased with this gaming computer. :)
Recently bought this as my first gaming desktop. After doing a lot of research, i decided to go with the Hellion cause its features described everything i wanted but when i set up my desktop, I was unable to connect to a wireless network. Not just that, my device manager showed that there was no wireless network cards in the computer even though the features list praises the wireless capability. Highly disappointed
Great for games.
Horsepower! I can run everything on max vid now with no stutttttttterrrring. It's cool.
Runs games nicely! GW2, Warcraft, EQ2, Rift
This computer is so fast, I love it! I bought it mainly to play games, and the games look fabulous! All of the following games have been tried and run on graphics set on "high":Guild Wars 2 - This one looks the best. Set very high so all detail is visible. Runs smoothly. Lovely game.World of Warcraft - Graphics set high. Looks pretty good but not much different because of the cartoony graphics.Rift - Graphics set high. Looks great and runs smoothly. No lag.Everquest 2 - Graphics set high. A little laggy but I think that's mostly because the game is still downloading graphics as I play (streaming)Sims - Still installing so I will let you know.Overall this system is the best I've had. If you want a pretty good system for gaming, this will not disappoint. I've been playing these games for years, and it's nice to finally be able to run them on "high" graphics and appreciate how beautiful they look.
Great PC for the value.
The gaming and the performance:This is my first gaming PC. It's very powerful, and runs all my aged steam games on high - ultra settings. Minecraft, with everything on maxed out, runs at nearly 180-200 fps. Skyrim gets 30-50 fps on ultra, plus mods like better lighting and graphics enhancements. Also played Fallout 3 with graphics mods at 40fps. Basically, it can run any game maxed out from 2-3 years ago and farther.As for much newer games like Dying Light and AC: Unity, it can run at mid settings around 30fps.Is the operating system crap:As for 8.1, I don't understand the hate around it. Once you get use to it, and learn it's ins-and-outs, it's a very good OS, and much faster than Win7.Why I chose a gaming PC:I was a console gamer all my life. Just bought a PS4, played on it for a while until there was nothing else good to play except GTA5 and TLoU. Plus, my HDD was running out fast, and I don't even have 10 games installed. So I researched, and found this beast. It's just as powerful as the PS4, if not better.Is it a good gaming PC? YesShould you buy this PC? Well, that depends on what kind of games you play and whether or not you prefer performance over visuals. If you're using this for newer games, I recommend you upgrade the gpu.
Mic Jack does not work
Fast gaming pc. It was packed well. The front microphone jack does not work. Easy fix, I just plugged it in the back. Fan lights up blue, sharp look.
I love this computer
I love this computer. I like to build my own PCs when I can and this seems like a custom built PC. It has standard components that can be upgraded. The cables were neatly bundled and mostly hidden behind a cover. It came with extra case hardware so, for example, I could add more drives and use the quick connectors for the additional drives.The only thing I didn't like was the WiFi adapter. The description on Amazon didn't indicate it was an external micro USB adapter with no antenna. It seemed to provide an unreliable connection, even when it was near the router. I replaced it with a better WiFi adapter.
I was blown away by the quality of this pc and I would say for all of you cybertron is a good name.
Wow! that's all I have to say. if you are looking for a reasonably cheap pc for gaming here it is. I was blown away by the quality of this pc and I would say for all of you cybertron is a good name. quality parts and the case is awesome. the case has a section on top that opens and looks like something Batman would have designed. the only downfall is the graphics card is not as good as I thought it would be, I play DAY Z and was hoping to get the graphics all the way up and sadly that didn't happen. but for the price this pc is the way to go, I will probably look into a more expensive graphics card and I will be able to upgrade with little help from youtube. good job cybertron!
It's a decent PC when it wants to work. Usually basic processes make the CPU reach 100% and the majority of the time it doesn't turn on completely. It will show the lights and all of that, but the monitor won't detect it. So I'll have to unplug the power cord from the PC and hold the power button for 20 seconds to make it work. It's really annoying. Cybertron, can you help me resolve the issues?
Great System, Love it!
We received the computer very quickly and we are very pleased with the overall performance. It is fast loading which we love. We are still getting use to Windows 8.1 and where to find stuff since it is somewhat different from Windows Vista.
