Cyberpower Infinity X55 Pro Gaming PC Review

A Closer Look

The Infinity X55 Pro’s chassis adopts an inverted layout and can look fairly bizarre on initial inspection. Despite this, you adjust to the design rather quickly and it’s easy to become enamoured with the unusual appearance. In terms of build quality, the hinged windowed side panel and solid construction really evokes a premium feel. This is certainly one of the best Corsair cases I’ve seen in recent years and it’s a superb choice for this particular build.


After removing the side panel, we can see the remarkably clean finish which showcases the company’s attention to detail. It can be quite tricky to examine each component due to the inverted construction. Nevertheless, it’s clear that the balanced, neutral black styling works rather well. On another note, the PSU cover is an ingenious idea and obscures the non-modular power supply’s trailing cables. While the LED strip looks to be losing some of its adhesive, the finish is fairly flush and I highly doubt it’s going lift up anymore.


Cyberpower has employed zip-ties to form a tidy finish around the graphics card’s power connectors. Furthermore, the cable run is tight and the perfect length for this current setup.


The CPU’s pump connector has been wrapped about the tubing to prevent any loose wires being visible from a distance. Also, notice how well the glossy black memory contrasts with the matte CPU pump design.


Here we can see the XFX R9 390’s gorgeous backplate which prevents the GPU from sagging and creates a more luxury appearance.


The front panel connectors are held in place with zip ties and routed through the chassis’ cable management grommets.


Unfortunately, the system’s cable management isn’t the best I’ve encountered and looks fairly disorganised. However, you have to take into account the non-modular power supply and restricted space caused by the chassis’ narrow design. Overall, it’s good enough to easily shut the side panel door without having to use undue force and has a functional arrangement.


Towards the power supply, there is a mounting point for the mechanical hard disk drive. Notice how there’s a large influx of cables surrounding this area including the 24-Pin ATX. While it looks fairly messy, Cyberpower has used zip-ties to cut down on clutter and prevent underused cables from protruding onwards.


The chassis’ USB connectors and audio jacks are coupled together rather nicely without too much pressure being applied on the zip-tie mount point. Therefore, these cables are kept away from the main power supply connectors.


In the middle section, we can see the hard drive mount, 24-pin routing, and Molex connector to power the LED strip.


Finally, the front fan cables are tidily held in position and shouldn’t come loose over time.
