CyberPowerPC is one of the boutique gaming PC builders that brought many interesting offerings to CES this year, and we got an up-close-and-in-person look at the bounty in the company’s hotel suite earlier this week. CyberPower's compact Zeus Mini gaming rigs aren’t perhaps as aesthetically sizzling at first glance as some other systems they showed, with a simple black rectangular box, some lights and colorful grills that pop a little bit, but CyberPowerPC looks to have done a good job laying out the guts of the machines--which is no small task with small form factor chassis. L: Zeus Mini; R: Steam Machine You can see the radiator for the liquid cooler in there, nestled with the ODD,... Read more...
There are loads of new gaming systems rolling out during CES, including a host of Steam Machines (some of which are more ready for action than others), and CyberPowerPC has some more, including one that will make any gamer smile in spite of him- or herself. CyberPowerPC’s Fang Battle Box is a mobile--and we’re using that term loosely here--gaming system that features a full-powered system in a box. As in, a suitcase-looking container that you can take around to LAN parties more easily than you would any normal full-featured system. It can accommodate full-size graphics cards and liquid cooling, and it’s the killer rig that you’ve been wanting to bring to a LAN party your... Read more...
A company called AIO Robotics announced that it will be launching a Kickstarter campaign on September 4th to raise money for a 3D printer that also offers 3D “copying” (i.e., 3D scanning), and 3D faxing. (Yes, 3D faxing, as in you could “fax” someone a 3D file that would automatically print on their 3D printer. The use case on that seems quite narrow, although we suppose that if it’s perfected, it could have some benefit over time.) The printer may be given the name “Zeus”. More notable features of this prototype include that it will run on its own ARM-based onboard computer that you can navigate with a 7-inch touchscreen. Thus, it wouldn’t need... Read more...
Be careful what you click on, Facebook users. According to security outfit Trend Micro, variants of the info-stealing Zeus malware are "reemerging with a vengeance" and targeting Facebook users with increased tenacity in recent months. A surge of activity was noted in the beginning of February, but instead of leveling off, it continues to be active. The most common variants this time around are called "Citadel" or "GameOver," both of which send DNS queries to randomized domain names. When a user clicks on a malicious link, they're redirected to a website that gets busy dropping dirty files onto their PC. These are usually random-named folders dropped into the %Applications Data% folder. Contained... 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...
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...
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've surfed the Internet for any length of time, chances are good that you've seen a browser window pop up with a warning that your computer is in DANGER from a whole slew of evil viruses. Such windows, if clicked on, often perform an utterly fake virus scan during which they invariably "detect" infected/contaminated files. Users are then prompted to purchase a registered copy of Antivirus 2010 in order to protect themselves. Certain versions of the program will intercept and hijack online searches, disable or refuse to install real antimalware software, and may even block users from accessing web portals that are known to contain removal tools. These are the sorts of blocks AntiVirus 2009... Read more...
We haven't posted any Power Supply news recently, but this one deserves some attention. Phoronix has reviewed SilverStone's Zeus ST75F 750W PSU, which is geared towards the most energy hungry PCs out there(Quad-SLI anyone?). "If the popular 500~600W power supply units are not enough to suit the growing needs of computer enthusiasts, SilverStone Technology has released a phenomenal 750W continuous power PSU. With providing just over the equivalent of one horsepower, the SilverStone Zeus ST75ZF features quad +12V rails, dual PCI-E 6-pin connectors (plus the option for two more), industrial grade components, and active PFC.
