Deep Cool are one of the fastest growing names in the industry and their latest products are a great example of why. The Fang Trinity chassis was developed in collaboration with CyberPower and it’s not only unique, but also incredibly practical and most interestingly, incredibly heavy. It splits into three separate compartments, one for the motherboard and a 120mm AIO cooler, the top section for a high-end graphics card, hard drives and an 80mm fan, the other for more storage and a full size ATX power supply.
This is easily one of the craziest chassis we’ve ever seen and we’re really looking forward to testing it out later in the year, as it has a lot of interesting cooling potential due to its multi-compartment design.
Cyberpower PC are out in force this year, they’ve bought along an incredible range of systems that will be available from them this year, and they’re perfect proof of why CyberPower are one of the top system integrators in the world. While these systems are great as they are, they’re more a demonstation of what they can do for their customers, as each system is designed to be customisable and upgradable by the end user via their webstore.
What’s really cool are the current prototype steambox style systems they’ve developed which will be hitting the market in the near future. They look a little rough around the edges at the moment, but they’ll be refined and final very soon, offering great performance and competitive prices for big screen gaming.
Eager to take your mobile gaming to the next level? Then you may want to check out the new Fangbook III HX6 15.6″ gaming notebook from CyberPowerPC. It comes equipped with the latest Intel Core i7-4700MQ processors, Nvidia GeForce GTX 860 M4GB graphics and plenty of upgrade options for those who need even more power.
The processor is incredibly efficient, as it’s capable of dropping down to just 800Mhz when you’re browsing the web or playing Minesweeper, but dials up to 3.4GHz when you really need it.
The Fangbook III comes equipped with a 1080p LED display and a two megapixel HD webcam. It supports mSATA in addition to 2.5″ drives; it also comes equipped with a SATA 6.0Gbps 1TB hard drive as standard. There’s also three shortcut keys that allow you to spin up the cooling fans, adjust the backlighting and to underclock the CPU at the touch of a button.
The Fangbook III HX6 base configuration includes:
15.6″ Full HD (1080P) LED Backlit IPS Panel Display
Intel Core i7-4700MQ Processor
NVIDIA GeForce GTX 860M Graphics Card
8GB DDR3 Memory – Expandable to 16GB for Heavy Multi-tasking
CyberpowerPC has unleashed their newest Syber Vapor PC Gaming Console. They’ve released the X-venom and the Syber Vapor Extreme was born; an extremely powerful gaming PC in the form factor of a game console.
The Vapor is an upgradable and full featured PC gaming-system with all the benefits. You can enjoy all of your favourite PC games anywhere by simply plugging it into your big-screen TV and connecting it to a wireless network. The Vapor launches in Steam’s Big Picture mode with Microsoft Windows 8.1, so you get access to your full Steam library as well as all of your Windows features like Netflix, Hulu, web browsing, Skype and much more. CyberpowerPC promises all of this at an affordable price.
Unlike normal gaming consoles, the Syber Vapor systems are upgradeable in every way, just the same as your normal PC. You can also highly customize the setup before you purchase it. The Vapor Extreme takes its name seriously and is configured with an i7-4790K CPU and 8GB RAM on a MSI Z97I ACI mITX motherboard as default. Not surprising, the graphics card powering the system is one of the brand new Nvidia GeForce GTX 980’s. The lower power consumption and thereby low heat dissipation makes the card perfect for a compact system like this.
The basic model has a 1TB 7200 RPM hard drive but there are options for solid state drives as well. There is room for 2 drives in total in this system. Just like the previous Vapor I and Vapor A models, the case can be had in both black and white. The price starts at $1499; quite a bit more then a console, but you also get a lot more. You’re also able to downgrade parts of the system, if you don’t need them or the price simply is to high for you budget.
OriginPC was one of the first manufacturers to offer the monstrous Titan Z card in their custom-build PCs. However, the chassis availability capable of housing the graphics card was limited, until now that is.
The manufacturer announced that NVIDIA’s Titan Z can now fit in some if its select mini-ATX cases, making the company one of the first to offer the smallest 4K PCs on the market. The mini-ATX line capable of handling the Titan Z is the Chronos lineup, having the Corsair 250D and Silverstone RVZ01 mini-ATX cases up for grabs for users wanting a small-size Titan Z configuration.
The Titan Z base configuration announced for the Chronos lineup is set to include Intel’s i5 4460 clocked at 3.2 GHz, the ASUS H97I motherboard, 8 GB of Kingston HyperX memory and a 500 GB hard disk solution, all being priced at $4600.
In addition, CyberpowerPC appears to have announced their own new small form factor PC builds with the addition of the Fang Battlebox. The small form factor case is said to be ready for travel, allowing for a small cage to be fitted inside of a hand plastic carrying case in order for users to take their builds to gaming parties or other gaming events.
Though the Battlebox is designed to be compact, the company states that the design was made with airflow in mind, having and additional option for water-cooling solutions as well, depending on the unit and selected video card. A quick swap tray for hard drives has also been fitted inside the box, having users granted a way to quickly swap between work and leisure data wherever they travel.
In terms of base specifications, the Fang Battlebox is said to one with Intel’s Core i3 4150, 8 GB of memory, 1 TB hard drive solution and integrated graphics, having CyberpowerPC pricing it at $620. Users who want more can get the Intel i7 4770K, 16 GB of memory, 2 TB of hard drive and 128 GB of SSD solutions, as well as NVIDIA’s GTX 780 configuration at the price of $1600.
After visiting CES in Las Vegas, we made it a priority to find the best products that were being unveiled to the market for this year. We went to CES 2014 not expecting too much other than 4K on an affordable level and more consumer level products that are aimed at home and lifestyle and for the most part, this is exactly what we saw.
For us however, components are more important to us and this is what we want to focus our awards on, so after visiting many various companies and a whole load of exciting booths and suites, we have got together to discuss the very best components that were shown at CES. This can range anything from chassis to power supplies to full systems. We also recognise SSD’s, memory, portable chargers, mobile devices and much more and with this in mind, here are our best picks and lucky winners of the Best of CES 2014 award:
Luxa2 P-Mega 41600mAh Power Bank
We’ve seen the LUXA2 P-MEGA before at Computex 2013 in prototype form, but now that it is coming to retail, we managed to see the final product and with such a unique idea and extreme power, it certainly impressed us from the start. You can see more in our CES coverage article here.
Thermaltake Urban T81 Chassis
We checked out the Urban T81 chassis from Thermaltake and was extremely impressed by some of its features including the double side door and the ability to mount hard drives and SSDs on the side. You can see more in our CES coverage article here.
Tt eSPORTS Level 10 M Hybrid Wireless Mouse
The Level 10 brand has always demanded a premium stance in the market, and for a very good reason with its unique styling and plentiful feature set. Working on the success of the Level 10 M mouse, Tt eSPORTS have taken it one step further by adding wireless functionality. You can see more in our CES coverage article here.
CyberPowerPC Steam Machine
A big thing at CES was the unveiling of Steam Machines from a variety of brands, but CyberPowerPC’s version really impressed us with the styling, design and the ability to add a GTX Titan into the mix. The other highlight is the starting price of $499 USD which was very enticing. You can see more in our CES coverage article here.
CyberPowerPC Fang BattleBox
Another item that CyberPower were keen to show off was their Fang BattleBox. This caught our eye due to its unique styling and the idea behind it, in terms of being transported easily making it a fantastic choice for LAN events and social gaming. You can see more in our CES coverage here.
With our first ever Best of CES award, we’re keen to carry on this tradition with future events so keep your eyes peeled in June when Computex 2014 is the hot topic and we take a look at what’s on offer in Taiwan.
CyberpowerPC are taking this years show by the horns and are giving us a whole heap of toys to look at and play around with. We’ve already seen their Steam Box offering but there is yet another system in their suite that has caught my eye. Tucked away to the side of the room is a system that looks somewhat like a took box or flight case, but with LEDs inside. This is the coveted Fang Battle Box.
Packed inside this mighty little box is a whole LAN gaming system with more than enough grunt to pwn those n00bs with ease. After going to many LAN events, it’s apparent that some people could do with a more robust system to carry from home to the gaming halls and this is exactly the design path that CyberpowerPC have gone down with the Battle Box.
Obviously with a system of this sort, having an easy way to transport it is paramount and on the top a chunky handle is provided – as one would expect with a flight case design and next to this we find two USB3.0 ports, power and reset buttons and the case latch to open the system up,
The underside of the case features some large rubber feet on one end of the system is a full arrray of I/O ports so as soon as you arrive at LAN, all you need to do is plug it in and play!
Opening the case up we find that this is more than just a LAN ready chassis, Alongside a GTX 780 Ti and a 4770k topped with a Corsair closed loop water cooling unit is a 120GB SSD paired with a 1TB mechanical drive, 16GB Dual-Channel memory, cooler master fans and a 500W power supply from Corsair.
The Fang Battle Box is due for release around now and I am certainly looking forward to getting this rather unique system in for review, after all it’s not everyday you see a system in a flight case available to buy off the shelf.
