Ordered using this product page. Watched the attached review, and was hoping for the liquid cooling, lighting and at least the 4 ram slots listed in the tech specs, but sadly disappointed. No RGB lighting, no cooling and only two ram slots. This is not the unit they are advertising. The pc performs well enough for those who are not looking to expand much, but this is not what I thought was paying for when I bought it. Going to try and take it back today and order the one I thought I was getting....wish me luck....

Only Comes with two ram slots

Nice computer when bought on sale. But as far as I can tell it only comes with 2 ram slots but states it has 4 in the specs. So with the two been filled upgrading ram in the future will be very costly to none existent.

Let's first start with the other reviews from all over the internet. Many people are complaining that this desktop tower does not have RGB lighting while Best Buy (both Canada and US) specs say that this tower does have RGB. Let me correct them here. This computer DOES NOT have RGB. There is just one white light for the ROG logo. The RGB lighting is for more expensive computers. The video shows one of the GL12 series desktop which has RGB lighting. This specific model is GL12CP and DOES NOT have RGB lighting which I do not mind at all. And if you do, just buy a different case. There are many cheap cases available with RGB options. Now let's talk about the beast in the room. This desktop is very powerful and handled everything that I have thrown at it so far. I was worried about thermal throttling as there is just one case fan but there is nothing to worry about. This desktop does not get hot at all, thanks to CPU fan and 3 GPU fans. I played Assassin's Creed Odyssey on it all day long and the maximum GPU temperature was 76C while the CPU stayed below 70C. I had a 1TB Samsung SSD and the front panel on this tower takes in SSDs or HDDs easily. You do not even have to open the case. If you are debating between building a computer or buying a pre-built computer, I would say just go for this one. As you would be saving much time and in the future, for support, you do not have to go to different OEMs to claim warranty or something. As for price, comparing this computer (when on sale) with the custom PC, the price is not so different. So why not go for this one? Now, I am a big fan of ROG. Good job, ASUS!

Good Gaming Rig!

As I write this review, I've owned this system for about a month now. This PC has been performing well and is speedy. It's been working good with any of the games I've played on it so far on high-settings which seem to run well and smoothly. Some other CPU & GPU intensive applications I may use, such as rending 3D art in DAZ Studio or video-editing in Sony Vegas Pro, all seems to work good. Overall I'm quite pleased with it.

Great Gaming Machine!

Picked this up at the Whitby store... this machine is a beast. Runs anything you could throw at it... and runs it well.

Hope you didn't actually want the cool lighting effects!

Ad shows the video reviewing the CM model which includes the aura sync lighting, however, the model being sold is the CP model, which DOES NOT include the aura sync lighting....
