Liquid-Cooled CyberpowerPCs Push the Limits
Speed is an attractive feature whether you're looking to recalculate a massive spreadsheet or drive a souped-up roadster along a virtual racetrack. The trouble is that an over-clocked PC tends to overheat. Enter CyberpowerPC, a company that has mastered the art of manufacturing desktop and gaming systems with built-in liquid cooling.
With one model available in the $600 range and another below $900, these prices are less than you'd pay for a custom PC. And that's totally cool.
The Gamer LiquidCool U101 desktop computer runs at 2.8GHz using an AMD Athlon II X4 630 Quad-Core processor. The Gamer LiquidCool X101 desktop computer operates at 3.3GHz with an Intel Core i5-660 Dual-Core CPU. The former is supplemented by an ATI Radeon 5450 graphics card with 1GB of memory for mind-blowing 3D gaming performance; the latter by an nVIDIA GeForce GT 240 graphics card with 1GB of memory for breath-stealing 3D gaming performance. In both cases the liquid cooling system ensures that the computer won't overheat during intensive gaming sessions.
The U101 is equipped with a 420-watt power supply; the X101, a whopping 600W supply. The former contains a 500GB hard drive; the latter a 750GB drive. The U101 has six USB 2.0 ports; the X101, 12, and one FireWire-400.
Both systems come loaded with Windows 7 Home Premium (64-bit), which provides a stable operating platform for games and is chock-full of multimedia features. See Free "Windows Live Essentials" Upgrade Adds Movie Maker, Photo Fuse and More.
Beyond the liquid cooling, CyberpowerPC models are cabled for efficient air flow. There are up to six case fans per computer. Temperature display and control options for thermal management are provided.
