CyberPower Black Pearl Gaming PC


On November 3rd Intel allowed the world to see just how powerful their new Core i7 / X58 combo was. Just like a title fight with a heavyweight boxer we were knocked out by the power, speed and agility of the new platform and so were our readers from the feedback we received. Until this point Core i7 has been made of pure unobtainium; you simply could not buy it no matter how much you offered. That changes today as e-tail and retail are opening up the ring and everyone gets a chance to fight the champ.

All of this boxing talk has a purpose. Unlike Intel's Netburst architecture that every overclocker on the planet has learned to tame, Core i7 is a different beast, one that takes hours to come to terms with. As I get older and gain more responsibilities, like many of you, I don't have the time to tame the beast and prefer a pre-built solution that will allow me to plug in, turn on and hit the front lines. Don't get me wrong, I still want to pull every last drop of performance out of a system and could care less what Intel says is the maximum performance of a processor. I know there is more power inside the box and want to tap all of it.

CyberPower has recognized the need to offer us old school users the best components, overclocked to their potential without the need to spend hundreds of hours fine tuning and tweaking. The new CyberPower Black Pearl Series is CyberPower's answer to the age old question; build it and spend two weeks getting it right or have it made by the pros who already know the ins and outs of a new, highly complex architecture.

Like all of CyberPower's systems, the Black Pearl is configurable when ordering and prices will range depending on the components ordered in the system. The best part is all of the tweaking is included with the cost of the system and done at the factory. When your box arrives on your door step all you have to do is plug it in and go straight to the battle.
