      This can run Forza Horizon 4 on High and my General benchmark BeamNG.Drive (due to the soft core physics) at maximum with no issues,
      The boot time is under 30s due to the SSD.
      No instructions on hooking up the LED Lighting, no tutorials online either.
      If you have games that run off discs you need to buy an external Disc drive.

      the blue lights look amazing in the dark and the performance is a lot better than something someone could of built for the money i paid and the whole system feels pretty good
      the fact that there are no PCI slots or spare slots available and no disc tray totally contradicts the fact this is meant to be a gaming PC . the fact that i had to connect the internal LED system myself without any instruction to do so was a tad annoying , anyone with no clue about these things would of been back in store to complain . and the fact theres only 6 USB ports is another big issue to me
