Now that Intel’s 4th-generation Core processors are flowing in the market, all your favorite boutique builders are churning out new systems based around those Haswell chips. The new Intel processors require a new socket (LGA 1150), and the associated motherboards have the new Z87 chipset. If you’re as excited as we are to see how Haswell fares, stick around--there’s a lot of good stuff coming down the pike. One of our first Haswel-based system is the CyberPowerPC Gamer Xtreme 5200, which comes in a surprisingly subdued mid-tower chassis that belies the powerful components inside. It’s hard to say what CyberPowerPC’s going for aesthetically here, but it’s easy... Read more...

CyberPowerPC, like the other custom PC builders, is revamping its product offerings with Intel’s new 4th-generation Core (Haswell) processors and Z87-based motherboards. On the desktop side, the company’s FANG III and Gamer Xtreme lines (among others) will get the upgrades, as well as its Zeus EVO Thunder series. The FANGbook EVO gaming notebook will also be packing Haswell mobile processors, in addition to NVIDIA GTX 700 series mobile graphics. CyberPowerPC seems to be especially focused on its Zeus EVO Thunder line, which will offer Core i5 and Core i7 K-series offerings and NVIDIA GTX 700 series graphics. The Zeus machines will have a new armor “befitting the God of gaming... Read more...
Lessons in Greek mythology made it clear that you shouldn't mess with Zeus, the big daddy of deities. He carried around a thunderbolt, for Pete's sake. Or, at least he used to. Boutique system builder CyberPowerPC has called upon the ancient child of Cronus and Rhea to serve as the god of its gaming line, and instead of a thunderbolt, the company's new Zeus EVO Storm Series wields an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 780 graphics card. The Zeus EVO Storm starts at around $1,499, though that price tag jumps a little past $2,000 if equipping it with a GTX 780. Otherwise, a baseline configuration consists of a CFI Boreallight full tower gaming case, Intel Core i7 3820 processor with "Pro OC" option (overclock... Read more...
While many full-size gaming rigs are built to elicit oohs and ahs with their stunning looks and high performance, gaming notebooks can sometimes be a little bland. CyberPowerPC has had its share of solid yet non-distinct looking gaming notebooks, but the Fangbook series is a different animal. Built with plenty of alluring hardware and a slick chassis, the Fangbook is also clearly designed to make people stop and ogle. The Fangbook comes in three iterations--the X7-100, X7-200, and the X7-300--and of course, all three models are completely customizable in terms of specifications and features...

While many full-size gaming rigs are built to elicit oohs and ahs with their stunning looks and high performance, gaming notebooks can sometimes be a little bland. CyberPowerPC has had its share of solid yet non-distinct looking gaming notebooks, but the Fangbook series is a different animal. Built with plenty of alluring hardware and a slick chassis, the Fangbook is also clearly designed to make people stop and ogle.

To give you a sense of the range of prices, the X7-100 starts at $1,299 (which gets you a pretty... Read more...
CyberPowerPC has a whole new line of boxy gaming PCs for us to fawn over called the LAN III series, which is comprised of four different models that range from the compact and modest LAN III Mini-A to the tricked-out, burly LAN III Commander. Predictably, there’s a huge range of prices and configurations available for the four systems, but the cost is a lot lower than you might expect; the Mini-A starts at a mere $439, and the top of the line Commander starts at just $1,395. CyberPowerPC LAN III Mini-A The Mini-A’s basic configuration includes an AMD A4-5300/HD7480D APU nestled into an ASRock A75 motherboard equipped with USB 3.0 and SATA6Gbps. There’s 4GB of DDR3-1600 RAM on... Read more...
The latest custom PC maker to jump in the NVIDIA GeForce GTX Titan pool is CyberPowerPC, and the company is doing a veritable cannonball by offering the new graphics card as an option on its Fang III, Zeus, Gamer Xtreme, and Ultra series rigs. Users can opt for up to 3-way SLI configurations and can choose from systems based on AMD FX or Intel X79 or Z77 chipsets, with both the CPU and GPUs cooled by a hydro 2 liquid cooling kit.

All the Titan-based CyberPowerPC gaming systems ship... Read more...
CyberPowerPC announced the latest in its lineup of gaming laptops, the FangBook X7 series, and the base configuration offers some excellent specifications. Under the hood of the base model (the FangBook X7-100), there’s an Intel Core i7-3630QM processor, NVIDIA GeForce GTX 675MX graphics, 8GB of DDR3 RAM, a 7200RPM 750GB HDD, and a DVD Super-Multi drive.

CyberPowerPC has gone all out with its announcements at CES, unveiling not only a new notebook and small form-factor PC, but one of the beefiest and most robust water-cooling kits we've seen in a while. Let's take it from the top. It seems that lately, "console-sized" is all the rage, and that's exactly how CyberPowerPC is describing its brand-new Zeus SFF. It offers an attractive full-tower chassis (9.5" x 9.84" x 3.9") sporting two front USB 3.0 ports. Because of its size, it could be assumed that Zeus SFF could be used with a television or PC that's far from a router. As such, it includes support for 802.11n wireless. The base Zeus SFF includes an Intel Core i5-3570L CPU, AMD Radeon HD 7750... Read more...
CyberPowerPC is a boutique PC builder known for, among other things, its Zeus line of custom gaming rigs, and the company is lending the brand name to a new series of all-in-one desktops, as well. The Zeus Touch series is now available and includes the Zeus Touch 1000, 2000, and 3000. The AIOs were made with a “minimalist tablet-like design” in mind, and all of them feature a 21.5-inch (1920x1080), ten-point touch LED display and Windows 8. They run 3rd-generation Intel processors (any of the three models can be configured with up to an Intel Core i7-3770S), H77 Express motherboards, 24x DVD+/-R/RW optical drives, and Intel HD 2500 or 4000 graphics. Memory and storage configurations... Read more...
CyberPowerPC's system lineup just grew by three today with the introduction of its Zeus Storm series of desktops, which is represented by a trio of gaming systems that swing whichever way you do (AMD or Intel processors; NVIDIA or AMD graphics cards). The least expensive of the three is the Zeus 1000, an AMD-based system that starts at $1,429. The default configuration consists of: AMD FX-8150 processor (3.6GHz, 8MB L2 cache) CyberPower Xtreme Hydro Liquid Cooling Kit Gigabyte GA-970A-D3 motherboard 16GB DDR3-1600 RAM AMD Radeon HD 7870 graphics card 128GB SanDisk SATA 6Gbps solid state drive 2TB hard drive (7200 RPM, 64MB cache) LG 12X Blu-ray reader / DVD burner combo 800W power supply NZXT...

If you're afraid of snakes, find a place to hide because the new Fang Taipan that just slithered into CyberPowerPC's lineup is every bit as potent as we've seen from a gaming a notebook. Exactly how potent depends on your budget, and if money's no object, you can deck this thing out with dual NVIDIA GeForce GTX 680M GPUs, gobs of RAM, and all kinds of other goodies. The 17.3-inch gaming notebook starts at $1,819, which is reasonable for this type of machine. That investment translates into the following: Intel Core i7 3630QM processor (2.4GHz, 6MB cache) 16GB DDR3-1333 memory 2 x GeForce GTX 670M GPUs in SLI 60GB OCZ Agility 3 SATA III solid state drive 1TB hard drive 8X DVD burner 802.11b/g/n...

What’s better than a custom PC tricked-out with killer components and sweet lighting? A custom PC with the aforementioned goodies as well as the ability to share your stellar gaming performance with integrated gaming and live HD broadcasting. CyberpowerPC’s new Pro Gamer FTW custom rigs have AVerMedia Live Gamer HD on board, and the technology records 1080p HD (60fps) video right to the Pro Gamer system. Users can easily add commentary and stream the content to an online audience. That’s not to overshadow the Pro Gamer FTW’s other impressive specs, though; these machines run on Intel X79, Intel Z77, or AMD Bulldozer processors; NVIDIA GTX (Kepler) or AMD (Tahiti) graphics;...

A few months ago, CyberPowerPC unveiled a new line of custom gaming PCs under the “Zeus” moniker that promised impressive specs and features at a relatively low price. As it turns out, there are plenty of Zeus models available (nine at present, by our count), which provides a plethora of starting price points. For $1,125, you can nab a basic Zeus Thunder 1000, but a top-of-the-heap Zeus Thunder Max starts at $3,735. Right smack dab in the middle of the Zeus family price ladder is the Zeus Thunder 2500 SE, a $1,899 rig that CyberPowerPC sent us to play with... CyberPowerPC Zeus Thunder 2500 SE Gaming PC Review...

If you haven’t yet read our coverage of NVIDIA’s insane GeForce GTX 690 graphics card, go do it now. Seriously. The thing is a monster, essentially a pair of SLI’d 680s in one package. It has 3,072 CUDA cores, 915MHz/1019MHz base/boost clock, 6008MHz memory clock, 4GB total GDDR5, and a smokin’ hot aluminum and magnesium body. And now, you can configure a number of custom PCs with the GTX 690, as Origin PC, CyberpowerPC, and MAINGEAR have all let us know that the card is available on some of their systems. CybwerPowerPC offers the GTX 690 in its Fang III, Zeus, Gamer Xtreme, and Gamer Ultra series’, with prices starting as low as $1,799. On the highest end, the Zeus... Read more...

Intel recently unveiled a special warranty plan that allows users a one-time replacement for a processor they inadvertently cook while overclocking, but it cost a (relatively) small fee--between $20-35, depending on your particular CPU. Gigabyte and CyberpowerPC have partnered to offer Intel’s plan, called the Intel Performance Tuning Protection Plan, in some CybewrpowerPC systems for free. The freebie will apply only to systems with certain Intel X or K chips (per the original plan conditions) and Gigabyte Z68 motherboards. Users can redeem their replacement CPU through CyberpowerPC’s customer service. Intel’s protection plan is by no means expensive, but it’s still nice... Read more...
