A Closer Look at the CyberPower Gamer Xtreme 4000
The CyberPower Gamer Xtreme 4000 is housed inside the XION Predator 970 computer case. Packed into the front expansion bays are the ASUS Blu-Ray Combo drive and the 12-in-one card reader. Just below the 120mm fan is a pair of Hot Swap enabled front loading SATA bays.
Spinning the CyberPower Gamer Xtreme 4000 around we can see that the side panel of the XION Predator 970. The side panel of the case is quite capable of some serious airflow. Though it doesn’t come with any fans pre-installed, it would be quite simple to add a couple of silent 120mm fans or a single 200mm fan.
The opposite side of the Gamer Xtreme 4000 features the Windows 7 Certificate of Authenticity and the CyberPower name and logo. A feature notable about the XION Predator 970 is that the side panel has been relieved to accommodate running wires behind the motherboard tray.
Upon opening up the CyberPower Gamer Xtreme 4000, a couple of items stand out. First and foremost is the cable management. The interior of the Gamer Xtreme 4000 has been expertly cable managed. This will aid in airflow through the case and help to keep the system running nice and cool. The second feature that I noticed is the CPU cooling. The Asetek 510LC system is utilizing a push and pull configuration on the radiator; this will further push down the temperature of the Intel Core i7 2600K and keep it nice and cool when running at the overclocked speed of 4.4GHz!
Spinning the CyberPower Gamer Xtreme 4000 around to look at the back of the motherboard tray, we can see the rather unsightly results of hiding the cables. Fortunately, this sight is seldom seen and isn’t going to affect the airflow of the system.
