Hello, this is my first post here. It's been 1 month owning this nice PowerSpec G442 gaming PC. My last gaming computer I had built from scratch in 2016. Originally I was helping a local friend select a replacement PC after his had died. By the time I filtered through all the PowerSpec models and I suggested the G442 it teased me enough that while to Micro Center together we both bought the same system and 32" LG UltraGear (includes AMD FreeSync too so I peeled off the Nvidia sticker LOL) display! I needed more storage for my old data files so I also added a Western Digital 1TB WD_Black w/Heatsink NVMe SSD to use as my games drive.

I do have one question though: Is the 750W 80+ Gold power supply an EVGA brand? I forgot to look behind the wall side panel before setting it up. On the PowerSpec product page for the G442 it doesn't directly say but does feature a tiny EVGA PSU graphic on the side but that could just be a generic photo.

I do like that this PC features quality name brand parts. As a retired PC tech of 36 years in the field, I'm OCD a bit so sometime in the future I "might" re-route the GPU power cables downward through the bottom slot just for looks. Right now as shipped they have them tie-strapped with the motherboard cabling. I mean, it doesn't really look bad or anything.

    Your unit would be a Thermaltake ToughPower 750GFM(TPD-0750M). It is 80+ Gold, single rail 62A. The picture on PowerSpec.com is to reference what a power supply looks like.

    I'm going to take a guess based on visual appearance that the CPU liquid cooler installed is a Cooler Master MASTERLIQUID ML240L V2 RGB (MLW-D24M-A18PC-R2). It's the only one on their website that matches I think. Also I'm assuming the RGB case fans are what comes with the Lian Li Lancool-205 Mesh. I'm only pointing this out parts for any future maintenance past the warranty period. Like I said in my original post, I am very happy with this pre-build. I feel it's a better overall value than building a similar system from scratch, especially since the store price dropped $200 down to $1,500 within the 30 day price guarantee since I purchased. Even with the 1TB WD_Black w/Heatsink NVMe that I added, it ended up costing me just $1,610 so you just can't beat that! In 2016 the gaming PC system unit that I built from scratch cost me $1,812 pre-tax. I highly recommend this system for both performance and value. Bravo Micro Center and PowerSpec. ♥️

    It is the Cooler Master MasterLiquid ML240L ARGB V2. Case fans are included with the chassis. They're standard case fans, front are 140mm, rear is 120mm. They are ARGB as well. You shouldn't have any issues replacing them down the road in the event of a fan failing.
