Pre-Built Ryzen PC Specs from CyberPower

Posted on February 28, 2017

With the impending release of AMD Ryzen comes a wave of related product reveals. CyberPower is now offering preorders for several varieties of prebuilt PCs that take advantage of the new CPUs.

The four models below were described in CyberPower’s press release, and an additional four can be found on their website: the AMD Ryzen 7X Configurator, Mega Special III, Mega Special IV, and Winter Gaming Special II. Each of these configurations can be customized with alternate or additional parts, including “high-performance gaming memory, solid state drives, graphics cards, and gaming peripherals.” During the pre-sale, Corsair Hydro H60 AIO liquid coolers are included as a free upgrade, considering the limited launch-day support for AM4. CyberPower will in fact do a general “Pro OC” for a price, but there are plenty of free resources online for those interested.

Some components (like memory) list specs without a specific manufacturer, and will presumably be chosen based on what’s available at assembly time. Corsair’s Vengeance line will likely be the only validated kit widely available at launch. What we do have opinions on are the S340 Elite (a decent case for $100) and the In Win 303 (winner of our Editor’s Choice and Quality Build awards). We praised the RX 470 as a cost-effective alternative to the 480 at launch, but it’s harder to tell if money is being saved when the card is included in a full system.

CyberPower is offering steep discounts on the “VR-Ready” Syber M, Gamer Dragon, and Winter Gaming Special II, but that said, it’s always a good idea with prebuilt systems to tally up the price of each part on Newegg and see how much is being charged for labor.
