CyberPower has gone with Thermaltake’s Element T case. While it is not the flashiest case it works very well and is great for system builders. For a full rundown of the Element T case, check out our review of it here. The case is basically unchanged except for the small CyberPower logo on the front of the system. Also on the front your will see the black DVDRW and 12-in-one card reader.
This system is made to be a gaming system so the Element T is a good choice. It has 2 USB connectors on the front which are perfect for flash drives and you have headphone and microphone connections which are great for gaming headsets.
Opening the system up the first thing you notice is the cable management. There are hardly and cables that will obstruct airflow in the case. This makes for better cooling and of course keeps the inside of your system clean. CyberPower uses cable ties to keep everything organized, even the SATA and internal USB cables are kept nice.
The thing that sticks out in this system is the large 5870 1GB video card. If you were wondering it is Power Color branded. At the bottom of the case powering the system is the Corsair TX 650 650W power supply. Corsair makes very stable power supplies, so it is a good fit for the system.
Cooling the i5-750 2.66GHz 1156 processor is an Asetek watercooling system that features a 120mm fan and radiator. This cooling system is very common; we have seen it in many custom systems. Since the P55 chipset uses dual-channel memory, not the triple channel like the X58 chipset CyberPower has put 4GB of DDR3-1600 memory in the system.
