Frequently asked questions

Q: Is the OS installed in the 2TB drive or the SSD?

A: The OS is installed on the drive not the SSD.

Q: Does this model have the awesome Wi-Fi and LAN?

A: Yes. I get about 60mbps over Wi-Fi and over 100mps over the LAN cable. My internet connection line carries 101mbps. I have not tried connecting the LAN cable to other PCs.

Q: Will 350W be sufficient to power this PC?

A: Yes, it will.

Q: Will this i5 1060 model coke with the mouse and keyboard?

A: I bought my PC recently which is an i7 1080, and I did not think it would either. So I had bought a mouse and keyboard combo. I then picked up the package from UPS only to find that there was a mouse and keyboard already.  The two have great designs that go along with the PC. So I think if mine had a mouse and keyboard, yours should too.

I was disappointed to find out on opening the box that the OS was installed on the slower drive instead of the SSD. I decided to work with it as it was since I hardly ever reboot my computer. I usually save my games and VR content on the SSD for the speed boost. I find the PC really quiet and cool even after heavy usage. It also supports Oculus Rift. I have had a difficult time install Windows 10 Anniversary update. My first trial installed 23% in seven hours. I sought for advice on a forum and found out that after using the upgrade assistant to download the update to my hard drive, it only took 25 minutes to install with the Wi-Fi and SSD disabled.
