Very disappointed with the quality of the build and the PCS so called quality control. £1500 PC was delivered with clearly visible bare wires, most likely the insulation stripped off during the build when they were pulled through the metal holes in the casing, fortunately these bare wires were nicely cable tied to other system cables and so luckily just avoided touching the metal case and blowing the motherboard. The GPU support bracket was installed, just a shame it was not adjusted to actually support the GPU card, a 10mm gap between the bracket and GPU should have been quite visible to the builder and QA inspector, the adjustment was tightened so its not something that changed during shipping. I specified an extra case fan in the order, this was fitted blowing directly at the exhaust fan, not only making it completely ineffective but actually making the case cooling worse as it reduced the effectiveness of the exhaust fan in removing the hot air from the case. The reason it was fitted where it was seems to be the length of the fan wire being insufficient to reach any other connections on the motherboard, so rather than install it properly with a fan extension wire they just took the easy option during the build. The PCS case is actually quite nice quality (PCS PRISM-X ARGB MID TOWER CASE), it is a shame however that the 3 front fans only operate at full speed (SATA supplied) with the mesh panel at the front too small to allow all three fans to draw in enough air to function effectively. All the other openings seem to have nice dust filters, just not for the intake of the 3 front intake fans so its going to be a very dusty system inside with the front fans running full speed all the time with no dust filter (let alone the unnecessary noise and energy consumption). Customer support was very good, its just a shame that the build and QA were so poor. Other than the issues above, the PC is good with the GPU & CPU fans inaudible over the noisy front case fans even when gaming. However it really should not be up to the end user to open up the PC and check for multiple build faults.
