CyberPower Black Pearl - Exterior

The NZXT Sentry gives the ATCS 840 a digital look and breaks apart the natural, plain appearance of the case.

Here we get a better look at the digital fan controller. The only thing that does not sit right is the direction of the hair lines in the aluminium. The case's go up and down while the controllers are side to side. However, at a foot or two away the effect becomes unnoticeable.

The entire case is brushed aluminium and each side panel is crafted to perfection.

CyberPower chose to place the Thermaltake ToughPower 1000 Watt PSU at the bottom of the case. Here we see the back of the two mighty HIS 4870 X2 graphics cards that are paired in CrossfireX mode from the factory. The ASUS P6T Deluxe offers a massive amount of connections on its I/O panel, including two eSATA ports.

One thing I noticed about the case is that it is prone to showing finger prints. The discoloured areas are from handling the case.

At the top of the case is where we find the power and reset buttons.

Peek-a-boo, I see you. The front USB, eSATA, FireWire and audio ports are done tactfully and can be hidden by pushing down on the top plate.
