Good Game Box


Good looks, easy setup, solid performance. Bought this after buying and Avatar box from my other son. This had a better video card and was ready to go

None at this point

Good performance for the price.


Windows 8 is not a good OS for gaming; Windows 7 is the best for gaming. Windows 8 isn't awful, just alt+tab doesn't work for some games. I didn't put this under the con section because it isn't a defect, it explicitly states that it has Windows 8 in...

Very good computer for the price. Won't overheat unless you overclock the cpu high (which is probably what the people who are rating this computer low are doing). Can run TF2 at max settings fluently (50-70 fps depending on the current situation),...

My hard drive came defected a tad bit, but Cyberpower is replacing it for free

Ultra 2138


I've had this computer for about 11 months now, I had to change a few parts... the cpu cooler, the lame non brand psu, and I got a GTX 680 in this mobo. Once i got everything working I cant really complain .. Its a great computer.

Decent for the money

CPU cooler sucks ; PSU sucks ; motherboard is on the low end but decent

Avoid if you want a Gaming rig



Not a bad price if you want to watch HD videos on it, and do other multimedia things

Gaming -rig? What a joke! I played Guild Wars 2 on this rig before I got my own built (bought this one for my wife as she was going to only play Sims3 on it at most), and it did fine for the couple weeks until I got mine built. Within the past month...

Not turning on at all...?


Was doing great when it was working. No overheating issues or lag while gaming and started up perfectly on Acer Screen

Well, about 3 weeks ago, I went to go on my Cyberpower, and I had no power at all. The power cord worked on other desktops too. So I went over the whole thing and wiggled some wires around and made sure everything was in the right place. And, btw, it...

Not enough cooling


Pretty nicely specced computer for the price (i got it on sale a couple months shy of a year ago around 500 bucks) Love the red LEDS

the fan/heatsink is inadequate. I bought this computer last year in the 11th month...its the 9th month now so it hasnt even been a year andits having overheating issues ; It seems to be ok if I just web browse but thats NOT what I got this computer for...

Stay away


Should have stuck to building my own.

When it wants to work it's great

Cheap motherboard, hdd came loose, inappropriate heat sink, before replacing the heat sink I would get constant fluctuations in CPU temperature, cheap psu, still getting constant errors and crashes, thought it was a heat issue but now I think it's a...

As the temperature rises, so do the problems.


I was nervous jumping into windows 8 that i wouldn't like it, but because of how i had windows 7 set up, I really don't mind windows 8. Since this is a desktop, the interface for windows 8 is far from necessary I'll give that to the anti-windows 8...

Fast 8-core processor sort of future-proofs the machine so you can expand the other parts without ditching your motherboard at least for a few years hopefully ; Good, clean sound on a flat EQ ; Windows 8 (used to be a con, but see "other thoughts") ;...

First and foremost, the CPU and side fans are, to put it lightly, pieces of junk. I'm writing this review specifically for this reason as i have reviewed this product in the past without mentioning this, since back then (in winter) this wasn't really a...

Follow-up Review


My previous review I had a motherboard failure that was handled, albeit slowly. Upon receiving the repaired or refurbished PC the hard drive failed two days being back in my care. I have tried repeatedly to contact Cyberpower by phone and email, but...

Good case, good wire management

Above average operating noise for a gaming rig, but at the price level its acceptable. Suspect PSU that may damage components and in my case it was the motherboard
