CyberPowerPC Rolls Out LAN III Gaming PCs

By - Source: TechPowerUp | B 7 comments

CyberPowerPC releases some new LAN gaming systems.

CyberPowerPC is showing off its new LAN III series gaming PCs that come in four versions. The LAN III Series gaming PCs from CyberPowerPC are, as the name indicates, designed for LAN parties, and thus come in small form factor enclosures. The three enclosures used are the Fractal Design NODE 304, the BitFenix Prodigy mini-ITX case, and the Cooler Master HAF XB case.

The least expensive model, the LAN III Mini-A, comes in the Fractal Design case. It contains an AMD A4-5300 APU, which has a HD7480D graphics part on-die. There are 4 GB of memory, and a 500 GB hard drive controlled by an A75 motherboard from ASRock.

The second tier model, the LAN III Mini-I, has an Intel Core i7 3770K CPU, 4 GB of memory, an ASRock B75 motherboard, and a 500 GB hard drive. It is housed by a BitFenix Prodigy enclosure. Oddly enough, the two cheapest stock models have no discrete graphics cards.

Moving on to the more powerful gaming machines, the second most expensive model is the LAN III Xtreme, which also comes in a BitFenix Prodigy case. It carries an Intel Core i5 3570K CPU, paired up with 8 GB of 1,600 MHz DDR3, Nvidia's GTX 650 graphics card, a Gigabyte Z11 motherboard and a 1 TB hard drive. This one is also the first that comes with a DVD drive.

The most expensive model, the LAN III Commander, comes in a Cooler Master HAF XB enclosure. It carries an Intel Core i7 3820 CPU, 8 GB of 1,600 MHz DDR3 memory, a GTX 670 2 GB graphics card, and is run by an X79 motherboard from ASRock. Storage is achieved with a 128 GB Sandisk SSD and a 1 TB hard drive. It also carries an optical drive.

Pricing is set at an MSRP of $439, $705, $795, and $1,395 for the LAN III Mini-A, LAN III Mini-I, LAN III Xtreme, and LAN III Commander, respectively.

    None of them are good, the first few cheaper ones are not gaming rigs at all. The more expensive ones are cheap crap components. Poor.

    Who the heck calls the thing a gaming computer with no discrete graphics card? What makes it a "gaming" computer, the fact that it has some multi-color LEDs or the fact that the marketing department decided to try to sell it to gamers?

    Are you serious?! Who designs this crap?! They pick the cheapest 7 series chipset (with a locked multiplier) with a high end unlocked CPU. They probably leave the discrete GPU to the consumer, but COME ON!

    3770k in the second tier machine and a 3570k in the third tier machine, that makes a lot of sense....right?

    Guys, you are clueless, this is not some crap Dell machine. I've picked up 3 pc's from these guys over the years. Those are the base version, you use it and add options to it. That way you can get just what you want and nothin you dont. So you can get the discrete cards or whatever cpu or amount of ram you want. (that will work with the specific case/mobo that you choose of course)

    You can get some base computer at 500 bux like those, and then upgrade em to as much as possible and with any accessory possible.

    Its sad this story writer is just as completely clueless as you guys are. Pretty sad for a tech site writer to write such ignorant stuff.

    Those of us here on TH (at least those who comment frequently) who build our own PC's are very well aware those are base models with options. And to call us ignorant and clueless is nothing more than a reflection of yourself. FYI, the writer did, in fact recognize those were base models:

    For the prices CyberPower PC charge, you could build a more balanced PC with emphasis on gaming and >20% higher FPS across the board. The fact that CPPC even offers an unlocked CPU with a locked motherboard is ignorant in itself.
