After replacment now its running fast and smooth no issue its value for money and if trying to buy assembled pc in this specification and this price its not possible thats why i buy thic pc . And also thanks to lenovo for great experience . And thanks to Amazon for fast and responsive service ...
I got this CPU at 59k, which is really value for money. Writing this review after using it for a week. Here are my observations :
PROS: - Performance is good, the processor i5 10th gen is fast - SSD is top class, Samsung NVME, really fast and rapid boot times - Size is compact, it has a mini ITX form factor case - WiFi and Bluetooth works flawlessly and fast - Modern AAA title run 50-60 fps in ultra settings. Dual fan variants yield more with the same 1660 super chipset.
CONS: - Heating issue. Really heats up very much after 2 hours+ gaming usage. Not much airflow from the case. The aluminum case adds dissipates it better, but the body gets really hot (only in performance mode). Normal usage no heating at all. It has one intake fan, 1 exhaust, 1 cpu air cooler, 1 gpu fan. - Graphics card is Nvidia GTX 1660 super, but it has only one fan (picture added). So can't get optimal performance from it. If you go for even an Inno3d/Galax dual fan card, that will give 5-7% more FPS in games. - Ram is 8gb @ 2933 MHz but intel i5 10th gen supports only up to 2667 MHz. I have upgraded the ram to 16GB by adding one 8gb ADATA XPG Gammix D10 3000 Mhz Ram (picture added). But both ram works at 2667 Mhz. No BIOS option to run ram in XMP. - Lenovo's motherboard is substandard and VRMs are not good at all. Cable quality is very poor (picture added).
Overall I got it for its price. I was looking for an ITX build and ITX cases are costly in India. So my build would have gone 10-12k extra if I had assembled it outside. But quality would have been better.
I would recommend this for those who use pc outside gaming also and do casual gaming.
This is priced well. But note that it does not have a adequate cooling system. Atleast that's what I can tell from the pics. Also, one important bit is the motherboard and GPU are custom made by lenovo But apart from these cons, from just price to performance ratio, this is impressive.
