CyberPower announced the new LAN Party EVO series of Small Form Factor desktop gaming systems. The LAN Party EVO series includes four compact gaming rigs based on small form factor mITX and mATX motherboards. All of the LAN Party EVO gaming PCs use liquid cooling to keep the CPU cooled and CyberPower's Max Airflow Package for maximum cooling with minimal noise. You'll find additional details for each of the models in the press release below.

CyberPower LAN Party EVO Series Offers Portability, Practicality and Power

BALDWIN PARK, CA (October 15, 2010) -- CyberPower Inc., a leader in custom desktop gaming PCs, today announced the perfect blend of portability, practicality and power with its LAN Party EVO (Evolution) series of Small Form Factor (SFF) desktop gaming systems.

The LAN Party EVO series is the embodiment of the perfect LAN gaming PC. CyberPower has managed to cram everything many LAN-going enthusiasts desire in a series of four compact and stylish gaming rigs that are lightweight, elegant and packed with immense cooling that will allow users to fry their enemies without frying their system.

The LAN Party EVO series is based on small form factor mITX and mATX motherboards that deliver big-sized motherboard features and performance in a small sized form. These motherboards support the latest processors from Intel and AMD, which can be combined with an array of the largest and most powerful graphics card choices from NVIDIA and ATI featuring Direct X 11 visuals.

Each LAN Party EVO gaming rig comes in a unique SFF chassis. The LAN Party EVO Mini is enclosed in a cube-like Silverstone SG-07B Mini ITX case. The LAN Party EVO Xtreme, Commander, and Ultra feature In-Win’s chain-link armor inspired Dragonslayer mini tower case.

The LAN Party EVO Mini is known as one of the smallest footprint gaming systems but can accommodate even the monstrous ATI Radeon 5970 graphics card. All LAN Party EVO gaming PCs are installed with a liquid cooling solution to keep the CPU cooled.

CyberPower has also integrated its Max Airflow Package to provide maximum cooling with minimal noise by utilizing low dBA fans and touch screen, variable-speed fan controllers. Users can also give their LAN Party EVO the silent treatment with sound absorbing foam, anti-vibration fan mounts, and even power supply gaskets to mitigate system noise.

All CyberPower PC gaming systems are pre-loaded with Microsoft Windows 7 64-bit Operating System to enhance your gaming and multimedia experience. They also come with a 3-year limited warranty and free lifetime phone support.

The starting price for the new LAN Party EVO systems is $759. High performance memory upgrades, and other peripheral components options are available at the company website. http://www.cyberpowerpc.com/LandingPages/LANPartyEVO/

Wow... that's pretty decent for a pre-built system.

As I've attested many times, I like CyberPower's system. And no, I didn't win one of them in a HH giveaway, though I did first see them here.

I'd consider hooking one of these minimal noise EVO's up to the entertainment system as a mythTV/gaming box.

What part of "Ph'nglui mglw'nafh Cthulhu R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn" don't you understand?

Yeah the media PC is a great idea for one of these as well. I really like the idea of a full desktop power holding yet easily mobile box, and have thought about building one for years, but have never done it. As for Cyberpower there systems are awesome for a prefab outfit I promise you that.

I can personally attest to the quality of CyberPower's builds. Mine has stellar cable management and the very best of quality parts within the box.

I just went to their site and configured a LAN Party EVO Mini with just a few upgrades on it. A faster hard drive, faster RAM, and a better video card. It came in at under $1,2000.00, a good price to have real quality built for you.

* CPU: Intel® Core™ i7-870 2.93 GHz 8M Intel Smart Cache LGA1156

* HDD: 500GB 7200RPM SATA300 Hard Drive [+16]

* MEMORY: 4GB (2GBx2) DDR3/1600MHz Dual Channel Memory

* MOTHERBOARD: * GigaByte GA-H55N-USB3 Intel H55

* SOUND: HIGH DEFINITION ON-BOARD 7.1 AUDIO

* VIDEO: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 460 1GB (EVGA Superclocked)

All told, this would make for a very capable gamer and it's portable too. I'm impressed.

Dogs are great judges of character, and if your dog doesn't like somebody being around, you shouldn't trust them.

Looks good, but I really hate working on Jen's SFF PC. The case is a absolute chore to get anything done. Cable management even if they do a great job would be undone the second you wanna upgrade anything.

Maybe I'm bitter. Stick out tongue

Me as well the inside of the box on my unit is flawless in all aspects. I was actually very pleasantly surprised with this case as well. Air management is flawless wiring was flawless as were all the components. I was scared when I got it actually, because I have always built my own.

The final verdict is Cyberpower did a awesome job period. Even the packing was done right, of which along with the flawless wiring, quite surprised me really.

If your Jen is anything like my Darlene, then she doesn't want her PC touched as long as it's working.

No Problemo!

Why my Jen must be a bit like your Darlene.
