CyberPowerPC Zeus Mini-I 780 SFF Gaming PC ReviewWe’ve been hankering to test out one of CyberPowerPC’s new Zeus Mini SFF gaming desktop models ever since we got some hands on time with it at CES, so we were happy to unpack the black and neon green Zeus Mini-I 780 that CyberPowerPC sent us this week.

Small form factor (SFF) PCs are something of a trend these days, and frankly, it’s refreshing to see powerful machines on the market that don’t take up much space and and don’t weigh 50 pounds....

Such a beast computer. I have a computer but doesn't even compare to this one, it can't even hold a candle to it lol. Its sad though that you can't upgrade the storage easily on this beast. If I had this I would love to add a 1TB SSD in there eventually when it gets cheaper. Also I really like the review format

Very cool computer I hope it knows how to keep it's temperate down. :) I wonder if this is the new trend towards the minis and away from full towers? Anyone know how upgraded able these minis are?

He is so good looking and powerful. But wouldn't there be a lot of heat inside?

I would have to say, I'm glad to see the industry trying to ma***e gaming pcs in smaller forms as well now. Before, it mostly meant you got a full tower. Now you can get a smaller sized one and from reviews the cooling isn't to bad. You can get water cooling systems in em.

Keeping a small system like this cool is a really big deal! SFF PC's and high end components don't usually mix, but they did something really cool here with the liquid cooling. Great job CP!

Nice review, enjoyed the two and a half geeks show as well. The system looks great and I like the form of the MINI, I think this is the way it should go makes it easy for placement in a work or home area.

It is sweet, but I think if I won it.. (PLEASE!!!! lol) I would pull it apart and rebuild in a proper case (probably after using it for a few weeks first! :) )

 

good luck today

This pc system is unreal >WOW. It would be a dream to own one of these. I've been listening to the geeks for a week, just catching up on old casts since i'm a new subscriber, and I have to say these guys know what they're talking about, and then some! It'll be an honor to own this system to whoever gets it.

It's awesome to see so many PC's becoming smaller while still being very powerful. It shows how technology is advancing so rapidly!

PC gaming FTW! Can't wait for The Witcher 3.
