Can you please provide a link to a better prebuilt PC at similar price point? Thx

From what I gather reading and watching reviews for the Thermaltake parts they seem fine, for the most part. I would say the ram is maybe a tad overpriced, but the 3200 sticks are generally just fine. They may not be the best, but as far as a starter kit goes I don't see an issue. If you wanted to get more ram, another 3200 would be fine, however if you wanted to increase the speed you should use a better brand. The PSU looks fine for a 650 gold, priced moderately, generally positive reviews. The liquid cooling is also priced moderately and has generally positive reviews.
Here is the thing though, most people who are interested in purchasing aa system like this don't care if it can be overclocked well, or if it's independent parts score higher in some arbitrary aspect. This is more or less a PC console and what people want to know is if they are overpaying on the device as a whole. There are many types of prebuilt computers out there, most of them are fine and a few of them are scams. This is a legit company that builds parts and has a few custom PC builds.
With that said, there are bad reviews, there are claims they have stolen designs, that their marketing is misleading and that they are part of the "scam" pc builds. The bad reviews in regards to false marketing like the 4400 ram looks legit, but other that I think it may just be bad QC with defective parts. Of course that is a problem and should be addressed, but in regards to the specific parts in this build I don't think there is any reason for passing this up if you are looking for something prebuilt, around this price point with these specs. //@anonymous: who in the heck would pick Thermaltake over brands like Factual/EVGA/Seasonic/Asus/MSI? If you are building a 3070 rig I wouldn't skimp on the other parts that's for sure.

The cyberpower pc with 10700F and 3070 for $1,182 was a deal. The iBuyPower with 5600X and 3070 for $1,289 was a deal. The HP Omen with 10700K and 3080 for $1,529 was a deal.
This thing right here is not only not a deal, it's grossly overpriced. And to make matters worse, its shipping date is every later than those actual deals. //@Anonymous: Maybe it's not the best parts, but for the price it's very good. Here I price the parts for you. If you are okay with 98% performance for 1/4th the cost of 100% performance, you will be happy.
