Every now and then PCWizKid's Tech Talk reviews a bundled PC, Laptop and Gadgets. Today we take a close look at Cyberpower's Intel Core i7 875K CPU Bundled PC made for performance and gaming. For many people the purchase of a quality gaming PC can be challenging and unfortunately a PC made by brands like Dell, HP, Lenovo or a Apple arent geared towards delivering a desktop computer that contains custom quality components that give top performance for a good price. This is where Cyberpower comes into play since they both manufacture and distribute Desktop PC's made to order and also pre-made bundles from which you can chose many terrific configurations of quality brand parts that use AMD or Intel, ATI or Nvidia chipsets. PCWizKid loves to build PC's from scratch with quality parts, and that's just what Cyberpower does on a large scale.
Of the many different desktop configurations Cyberpower has to offer, PCWizKid has been picked to Beta Test their latest Intel Core i7 configuration with the new 875K CPU which is water cooled and the new NVidia GTX465 by Palit in a Cooler Master 690 II Advanced Gaming Case with 4Gb DDR3 Patriot Sector 5 series memory. My first impression is that this is a midrange gaming performance PC setup, however its results can surprise you. To top things off this Cyberpower system comes with a 80GB Intel X25 SSD which has installed Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit. So as you can see Cyberpower utilizes quality brand parts and high end components in their builds so you can ensure you aren't getting left behind.

Positive aspects of the tested system - Reliable quality components used in the build
PCWizKid loved the CM 690 II Advanced Case with all its features which made the cable management very clean
PCWizKid believes all new performance and high performance PC's should have a SSD drive like the Intel X25 which was superb.
The Patriot Sector 5 memory is a great choice for enthusiasts and had XMP profiles which worked great to configure a stable system when enabled
- Fasted CPU for a LGA1156 socket used which maximized the use of the P55 chipset. - Power 800 Watt PSU with two 36AMP 12v rails which is great for later adding another GTX465 in SLI. - The Palit GTX465 comes with a dual fan and was very fast and capable of overclocking further for a boost in performance - System is quiet since it uses water cooling and has no side panel intake fan - Having a media card reader is a bonus and comes in very handy for transferring quickly data files. - Cable managment was clean and tidy
Desired improvements or changes recommended
- PCWizKid found the Intel P55 motherboard used was reliable however lacking in features for enthusiasts looking to overclock and thus overclocking was done within its limitations during the tests. - The Power supply should be modular to reduce clutter and ease of future expansion - Additional 500GB sata hard drive at least to go along with the 80GB SSD (which fills up quick after installing apps and games) - The radiator should have another fan for push/pull effect which can reduce CPU temperatures further when overclocking - The XMP profiles for 2000Mhz+ were not enabled by default to maximize the potential of the Patriot Sector 5 memory
This Cyberpower system configuration is considered a Mid Range Performance Gaming PC. The reason, it uses the LGA1156 / P55 chipset motherboard and Dual channel DDR3 memory. Also the GTX465 is a mid range performance graphics card for gaming. Having said that, the bundle has an SSD and Media Card reader which add to the package value. If you are in the market for a Gaming Rig that has enthusiast qualities, great performance without the price tag this may very well be your system. PCWizKid gives this system an overall rating of 8/10.
