CyberPower's overclocked AMD Fusion system with masses of RAM performs well and has plenty of upgrade potential

Specifications

3.5GHz AMD Fusion A8-3850, 8GB RAM, N/A display, Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit

[/vc_column_text]

That should still be enough for all the storage upgrades you’re likely to need. A DVD writer and massive 2TB hard disk are already installed, which occupy two of the motherboard’s five SATA3 ports. The case, which is sturdily made, if somewhat lacking in dust covers and sound insulation, provides space for four internal and two external 3 1/2in drives and three more 5 1/4in bays. The CPU and case fans emit a low whooshing sound, but this isn’t particularly obtrusive.

CyberPower Ultra Triton front

There are two USB ports at the front of the case and six at the back. Four of the rear ports are USB3, and there’s also an eSATA3 port alongside them. There’s also Gigabit Ethernet, a PS/2 port and both an optical S/PDIF output and 7.1 analogue audio outputs. The supplied Logitech keyboard and mouse are both remarkably comfortable to use, too.

CyberPower Ultra Triton back

Although its overclocked processor isn’t as powerful as some similarly priced Intel-based PCs, we’re impressed by the Ultra Triton’s massive hard disk, huge chunk of RAM, great upgrade potential and surprisingly good gaming performance, thanks again to the overclocked processor. However, unless you specifically need the RAM and disk space, it’s still not as good a performer as the phenomenally powerful Chillblast Fusion Shadow.
