We can't ship it If we're not from US :(
Why would anyone buy this?
I don't see very many people buying this drop. Your normal customers would just build their own. It's not even Kabylake.. LOL along with a shit-ass chipset & MOBO.. Shouldn't be more than 999.99 and even then... still a shit rig either way..
pcpartpicker dot com build your own. this is awful.
Wtf the b150 chipset will bottleneck the gpu. It only has 8 lanes. Should have at least 16.

Happy to say that PCI-E bandwidth is not a bottleneck on GPUs runing gaming workloads. Compute workloads might be affected though if they have high memory ops.
Who are these dipshits voting for this crap?

" Motherboard: MSI Proprietary"
I take that to mean you would never be able to upgrade the motherboard using this case, making it akin to the old Alienware systems that became very expensive boat anchors after a few years..
i feel sorry for the 2 people who bought.
lol.
Wow there is a lot of misinformation about PSU's here.
The specs are not bad, my PC is similar and cheaper though.
a 6700 and 1070 with a 350w psu..?

"If you can find me a pre-built, non boutique (iBuyPower and the like) machine that specifies what brand of PSU it's using, I'll PayPal you $5."
Right, so only large companies like Dell, HP, and MSI who can afford to cut corners because they already have a name for themselves.

Well yea, that's what OEM means... Boutique builds use off the shelf parts so they could use name brand things without legal conflicts with the manufacturers of the PSUs. They instead make their money by charging building fees and sometimes custom cases. i.e. the boutique builders are offering a service not a product.
Seems a bit overpriced for what you're getting out of it, especially considering that awful PSU that doesn't even have enough max wattage to comfortably run the system. You could get something considerably better for the price if you build yourself, but if you don't want to build a PC for whatever reason there are still better pre-builts out there.

omg this! someone with intelligence in computers. Why make it 100% load 24/7 like techwiz wants?! Its so not good for anything. You're better off having 200W sitting there never being used except for .01% of the time. Thank you
I guess I was a bit misleading in my comment, my system averages about 200w during most games. I think the most I've seen is about 230ish while playing Elite Dangerous in VR. 200w puts this 350w in the sweet spot for PSU efficiency (40-60% usage).
Hahaha nice 0 purchase drop. Massdrop you can't honestly think that the users here wouldn't be the kind of people to build their own machines?
my one comment is WHY THE HELL IS IT NOT A 6700K AND A Z170 CHIPSET!!!!!!
mweinbach
because people who buy this probably won't overclock since they're just buying a premade machine
Andriko
I got a ibuypower pc with a i7 6700k and 2 rx 480 8gb in cross fire. I actually overclocked a premade machine I bought on amazon.
Megatron wants his head back. oh wait, this one is the little cousin of the real Megatron

What a joke of a drop.

You're wrong.
Again, with the cooler, the T2 is just as bad for a K chip and won't allow any kind of overclocking. Either get a 7500 for non-overclocking or a 7600K/7700K for overclocking, but DO NOT skimp on a cooler for them or you're wasting your money on the K. An H7 is the least that should be paired with a K chip.
The board you picked is a low-quality, minimal-feature, cheapest Z170 board. There's a lot to motherboards and this is a terrible pick to go with a K chip and especially so with this budget. The cheapest "good" Z270 board is the ASRock Z270 Pro4 at a little under $120 and there's no excuse to not have at least that in this budget.
Any wireless adapter under $30 is a bit mediocre, but yeah, I suppose you /can get a decent one for $15. I wouldn't game on it though.
You didn't allocate any of the budget for a good case. That one is mediocre at best and really, at this budget, there's no need to get such a cheap case.
NEVER cheap on the PSU. Unless you've got a budget of like $200 there's no excuse to get what you picked. There are several high quality and good-performing PSUs in the $45-75 range.
Some smaller points, but the optical drive really isn't necessary unless specified, that GPU you picked has a vibrant yellow backplate which wouldn't fair well with many color schemes (but your build doesn't really have a color scheme, but should at this budget), you can get a slightly better Seagate 2TB drive for a couple more dollars, the MX300 275GB is a much better SSD pick, and putting another $10 into the memory for a 3000MHz kit will be absolutely be worth it and will have performance gains in games.
---
Yes, a lot of a PC build is completely opinionated, but I truly believe that a lot of the components you picked are genuinely bad choices regardless of opinion. You have a lot of cheap components in this build that I'd expect in a <$500 budget build that simply don't belong in a $1350 build.
I bet you use Apple devices don't you?
Why would anyone buy this piece of shit? Comes with a 350W powersupply...however GTX 1070 required is a 150W with a 500W recommended for the entire system....lets bottle neck the power!

While I agree with this statement 100% and I encourage anyone who is even moderately interested to try and build their own PCs, some people find comfort in knowing they can pick up a phone and find immediate assistance with their issues. Some people also find building their own PCs to be a daunting task (it's really not, but fear is a strange beast) and that is enough to put people off the idea of building their own PC. For either of those people, this is a pretty decent deal. Also, some people might just like the aesthetic.
techwiz
I agree that some people don't the confidence.To build there own.But if we only talk about doing whatever it maybe.Fear is only just in person mind.l say open yourself/mind to endless possibilities.Like you say it's not that hard to learn.Please people you owe it to yourself.laugh in the face of fear & build the p.c you want.pcbuilder.com is great place to start ;-)
NEVER BUY! ONLY BUILD!
GREY FOX!
What was the dropped price and the original price?
ANANETWORK
1350 vs 1600
Yes, you can build any computer for less compared to a pre-built with similar parts. Some people don't want to build one, I get that. HOWEVER, this price is not a good deal. As mentioned before, check microcenter or newegg. It may not look all that unique, but you'll save a lot more money and have a better warrenty.
Might want to update the description as 6th generation is not the "latest" anymore. Comparable computers can be built for a lot less. If you absolutely need a prebuilt, please check out a Microcenter if you're near one. Same value for less along with warranty and no shipping issues
WTF guys why are you wasting your money? Go build a desktop! You can get much better performance for this price!
pauliunas
I think it's clear nobody is doing this. This is obviously some sort of corporate agreement where Massdrop is putting this crap up on a pay-to-list basis.
Other than the fancy/smancy case, the powerspec G418 from microcenter is a much better machine, a greater value for sure.
starbaseaurora
Absolutely what I was thinking. Even my 970 Aura, 8320e (w/corsair h100i), evga 1070 sc build is comparable for less than half the cost.

I just got a refund
it won't use all the wattage and will likely operate just fine. i agree that it's not healthy to have a psu running so close to its limit.
Got my unit a bit before Christmas and have it setup and running with an HTC Vive. If you don't like building your own computer, this is a pretty awesome setup to run VR. I upgraded to the version that has the GTX1070 and Core i7. I have zero complaints. Also, I don't remember them listing it anywhere in the description but it does come with a keyboard and mouse. I foolishly ordered a setup separately. Just thought I would throw in some buyer experience with this rig!
sureMOE
Dammit, I bought a new keyboard because the listing said it didn't come with a keyboard. Oh well
wow i bought this and waited for about a month and at the end they tell me the package is lost... last time buying something from you guys.
SaeedAAB
Yeah, this wait is pretty ridiculous.
Bulk order shipped! The vendor informed us that the group's order was picked up and is on its way to our warehouse in New Jersey. Based on the tracking provided, the order is scheduled to arrive on 12/30.
Expect another update from us on 1/2 or sooner if something comes up.
