No regrets Review by Allied1987
I have to say I bought this laptop from Amazon, and was able to customize it a bit as well, but no where near as if i would have bought it from Upgrade Kings website. Will remember when I get read to buy another lap top about 5 to 6 years down the road. The Shipping was quick being was Prime eligible, I received it and looked just like the OEM would have shipped it, but with the Upgrade King sticker to show they did the requested upgrades. When I plugged it up and booted it up checked the bios to verify all was there and found a nice little surprise as well. In stead of getting a 32 gb ram I got a 48 GB of ram installed (16+8+16+8). Was a nice little surprise. The computer itself is a amazing boots windows in seconds, and everything is almost instantly. The is very quite when just running windows or surfing the web, but when playing fall out 4 and turning on the fans, it can get loud, but is no more louder then the ASUS ROG G74SX it replaced. The speakers are amazing, they are nice and loud and rich with sound no complaints coming from the Asus G74SX which were quiet as best.

The only complaint I have to say about this laptop is I wish they installed the OS on the 1tb HD, instead of on the 128 SSD, but that is a minor set back that can easily be corrected. That would be the only minor complaint I have at the moment, but will upgrade that myself being the SSD's on here are nice and cheap (Posted on 1/19/2017)

Amazing PC Review by GetAwayDriver
CUKUSA was amazing through the whole process of researching and finding a laptop. Originally purchased an ASUS 15" ROG 1070 GPU but the item was back ordered. After discussing the need to obtain a laptop ASAP, CUKUSA immediately refunded my purchase and provided an additional discount on the MSI.

Computer is incredible. Definitely a desktop mashed into a laptop. The GeForce 1070 is incredible; it keeps Overwatch at 60FPS on ultra with minimal effort. Heat does build up, but is well managed with the individual fans and heat ducting. But, to the touch, the unit does get hot. This was after a four hour LAN party running Overwatch and TF2.

The trackpad will occasionally do its own thing and space to the right, however I attribute that to the way I type and how I rest my hands, but it is still annoying. The audio is good, but not great. Older games and certain video off of YouTube will cause distortion in the speakers. I don't attribute this to the machine as newer games and content is played with great quality, but I didn't expect to have "back compatibility" issues with older content, especially with a machine of this much.

If anything, MSI makes a great gaming machine if a little on the pricier side. BUT BUY FROM CUKUSA. Clarence and Tyler were great and helped me find a good alternative to what I originally intended to purchase. (Posted on 10/1/2016)
Smoking Fast Laptop Review by Reed
I was so happy to find Computer Upgrade King and the ability to create the fastest laptop I could (in good concious) afford. I mean, I didn't want to spend enough for a late model used car and I didn't want to get too much flak from my wife for spending yet another couple week's pay on a piece of tech gear.

I'm not a gamer, I'm a photographer - a real estate photographer and I shoot brackets in the interior of homes in order to exposure fuse them in an application called LR/Enfuse. I shoot 5 to 7 raw images of any particular scene and stack them in Adobe Lightroom to be processed into a single TIFF image with a dynamic range of maybe ten stops of light. This eliminates the need for expensive and time consuming lighting systems and natural looking finished images.

It takes A LOT of CPU and GPU power to get this done. I process, on any given evening, over 600 RAW images of 24mb each - the finished product must be made available to realtors for their marketing within 24 hours, so time is of the essence. I had a Lenovo device with 16 gigs of RAM and a 1 tb SSD drive and I thought I had totally worn it out from the way it was performing as of late, so I decided to give CUK a try.

Turns out I really didn't wear out the other laptop - it still works well for most things, just not as fast as this new MSI Dominator pro with 64 gig of RAM and two 1 tb m.2 SSD drives and the new iNvidia 1070 GPU. Turns out Adobe Lightroom is having issues. Finding it wasn't as noticeably faster as I expected I did some research and found hundreds of other folks having a similar issue.

When Adobe fixes their software I know this computer will just tear it up. It runs everything else in the blink of an eye. Love the way it runs. (Posted on 9/14/2016)
