The scores we received from the Cyberpower system were very good, and ended up where we expected them for this system. But while it cranked out better performance than our reference system, it still was behind the competition. However, this was expected since this system was running all stock parts at completely default specifications. Except for the cooling issue we corrected with the faster fan speeds, the game play and testing went smoothly. However, we were puzzled with some of the scores that we got during the testing. We will discuss this a little later.
