CyberPowerPC Intros Mini-ITX System Configurators

By - Source: Tom's Hardware US | B 10 comments

CyberPowerPC has launched a new SFF configurator for custom built PCs. For these systems, CyberPowerPC has options for the BitFenix Prodigy, the Corsair Obsidian 250D, the Fractal Design Node 304, along with a Fang BattleBox. Because these are all Mini-ITX cases, the systems also come with Mini-ITX motherboards. As a result, expansion options will be limited to a single graphics card, but for a small form factor system that's okay. These days, all the other hardware such as good sound cards and network cards are not necessary anymore as the onboard hardware is quite good.

For hardware configurations, there are plenty of options ranging from entry-level AMD systems to high-end Intel Core i7 configurations. There are more options for graphics cards than you will ever need as well. Be sure to check our Best Graphics Cards for the Money and Best CPUs for the Money guides while you're configuring a system for yourself. If you need more help picking components, you can check out our How to Build a Gaming PC Guide.

Getting a PC built by a company like this is a good option for those of you who are not as comfortable building a PC yourself but want to be able to pick specific components. It will cost you a little more, but you will also get a warranty on the entire system rather than only on individual components. CyberPowerPC ships the systems with a three-year warranty.

You can find the configurator in its different starting flavors at CyberPowerPC's website.

    I love the mini-ITX size! That Corsair 250D looks nice, although it isn't as small as my Silverstone SG05. Maybe CyberPower should also start offering the Gigabyte Brix Pro DIY kit as well.

    Just built my first SFF PC using the silverstone rvz01 and still can't believe the amount of high end hardware you can fit into that tiny space!

    Another + for ITX systems!!! The systems such as the BRIX or other valve inspired systems will always have a lack of components to choose from. While the ITX the only real change is the mobo size, but you can use pretty much any v.card or p.supply in it... The thing with the BRIX and Valve Style systems your going to have to track down a special video card, a special power supply, a special motherboard (Ever tried upgrading your laptop other than the HD? Fak that!)... if 1 of the components were to fail... With the ITX , though bigger, you have more stuff to choose from, though not as much as ATX... I think the BRIX and Valve Inspired systems will never catch on since you probably will pay through the teeth to fix it or upgrade it... just my 2 cents... But more power to ITX!!!!

    I like the the size of MiniITX but there's not enough space for quiet cooling. Any powerful GPU that can fit inside a MiniITX case is going to be loud at load.

    They already do. The Fang Mini systems are Cyberpower rebranded Brix kits.

    The water cooling GPU brackets like the Corsair HG10 and an AIO would do great in this situation if you have the noisy reference cooler.
