    Box doesn't say what video card, cpu, psu and memory you got. Specs are important in the rating.

    This thing is an absolute beast. I know you posted for the LED clout but this is honestly one of CyberPowerPC's better rigs. I looked up the image in the OP and I found the model if anyone was curious.

    This is a CyberPowerPC Gamer Supreme SLC8420A Gaming PC.
    • System: Intel i7-7700K 4.2GHz Quad-Core | Intel Z170/Z270 Chipset | 16GB DDR4 | 120GB SSD | 2TB HDD | 24X DVD±RW Dual-Layer Drive | Genuine Windows 10 Home 64-bit
    • Graphics: NVIDIA GTX 1070 8GB Video Card | 1x DVI | 1x HDMI | 1x Display Port
    • Connectivity: 6 x USB 3.0 | 2 x USB 2.0 | 1x RJ-45 Network Ethernet 10/100/1000 | Internal Wi-Fi 802.11 AC Wireless Networking | Audio: 7.1 Channel | Keyboard and Mouse
    • Special Feature: Liquid Cooling | Internal Wi-Fi 802.11 AC Wireless Networking | USB 7 Color Gaming Keyboard
    My thoughts:

    CyberPowerPC usually picks good parts, but their support is nearly nonexistent (if you are tech savvy this is a non-issue), the fans are cheap and fail often, and the cable management on the other side is just atrocious (zip-tie hell). The keyboard and mouse that ship with it are good as a backup but not as daily drivers, in my experience the keyboard doesn't register all keystrokes and the mouse tracking is dodgy at best. I would suggest picking up something from Logitech G or Corsair to replace them, or browse /r/mechanicalkeyboards if you're into more avant-garde stuff. The monitor was a great choice for the graphics card + CPU but you could easily go 4K in the future. An LED strip behind the desk would look cool, especially an RGB strip. IKEA has these and the RGB version even comes with a remote controller to change the color from across the room.

    You have an extremely powerful system so make the most of it. Clean it every couple of months (I personally use a paintbrush but canned air works well too), and if the fans look busted then keep this link handy: https://www.amazon.com/Corsair-AF120-Quiet-High-Airflow/dp/B00F6S10KK/

    You can run tlopo at over 60 fps in high settings and stream at 40 fps
