Not as easy to install/add aditional hardware as its made out,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: ASUS CG8580 ROG Tytan Gaming Desktop PC (Intel Core i7-3770K 3.50GHz, 8GB DDR3 RAM, 2TB HDD, 64GB SSD, 2GB GDDR5 Nvidia GeForce GTX 680, Blu-ray, Xonar DX, Windows 7 Home Premium) (Personal Computers)
Got this recently. Great PC. But I wanted to add additional hard drives. Thy provide absolutely no instructions on how you can open this box nor that you CANNOT just slot the hard drives into the PC, as it seems to appear on their promotional videos.
For those interested, you need to undo the 2 screws on each of the back left and right before the side panel will slid out easily by pressing a pressure tab just inside the back cover on each side.
To add additional drives you will need a "SATA Data Cable" for each drive. Placing/adding these to the existing connectors requires VERY nimble hands. They do not make this an easy job ( my Dell XPS was far better designed ).
Its a quite PC for my use any way.
Great PC with my main gripe being there is just not enough information out there on this product ie technical stuff ( how to add had drives, the internal mother board connectors).

After just 2 months the SSD card failed. Asus Europe not interested in supporting it .. Asus uk would ponly accept the WHOLE pc returned instaed of simply replacing SSD. Only option was to return the WHOLE pc back to amazon. They did not have a replacment. So I would have to take out all my installations/configurations etc
Instead I just bought a Samsung SSD 256GB.
Its now been working fine. Have total of 5 2TB drives + SSD card running Win 8.1.

i had the same sort of thing i got my asus with 12 gb ram not 16 gb and a 64 gb ssd not 128 gb as they advertised so made a bad thing out of a good thing with it i used to build my own pc`s but this one came up cheap . the ssd that was in it was crap ..im still running windows 7 on my one got 8.1 on the laptop but some of my steam games are having problems with it
have a look at the link http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lyb4Myo6is
i do recommend going for a gtx 690 if you like gaming .got my evga on e-bay for £470 and it looks so cool ..+ just won a ASUS x79 Rampage IV Extreme/BATTLEFIELD 3 sock 2011 on e-bay for £180 .it will go with the case as the mother board in it is ok but not the ROG witch takes the point out of calling it the asus rog 8580 will put a picture up with the upgraded card and psu so you can have a look if you are interested
