Gamer Ultra System Overview
CyberPower has many case options you can choose from, but they went with the Cooler Master Elite 430 case on this system. We actually reviewed this case not that long ago. The case is pretty plain and does not have much going on. Checking out the front of the case you can see the Blu-ray drive and card reader are black to match the front of the case.
Moving around to the side of the case you can see that CyberPower has installed a white fan, which is not standard on the Elite 430 case. There is also a small CyberPower logo on the bottom left part of the window.
The back of the case is pretty plain, but CyberPower has installed an exhaust fan, which also is not standard on the Elite 430. Another thing that we look at when we receive a custom system is the I/O shield. We make sure it is installed correctly and that nothing is bent. CyberPower has done a nice job with the I/O shield.
Opening the system up and taking a look inside we can see that everything is nicely organized and the cable management is awesome! Most of the power supply cables are tied and hidden.
The thing that stands out most in the system is the GeForce GTX 460 video card. CyberPower has decided to go with the EVGA 1GB version of the card. Above the card we can see the Asetek 510LC 120mm watercooler. Asetek watercoolers are pretty much standard on most custom builds these days.
There is only 4GB of memory in this system, which is Kingston HyperX 1600MHz DDR3. It is finally nice to see system builders using SATA 6G hard drives in their systems. This system is using a Western Digital Caviar Black 1TB 7200RPM 64MB cache SATA 6G drive. We’ve only looked at one other SATA 6G drive and it was a solid state drive so it will be interesting to see how this drive performs.
