CYBERPOWERPC Announces the FANG Battlebox

CyberPower Inc. a manufacturer of custom gaming machines, notebook systems, and high performance workstations, has a secret weapon that you can easily tote to your next LAN party. The company debuts its FANG Battlebox today, a high- performance gaming rig stuffed inside a suitcase-like shell that you can carry anywhere.

The FANG Battlebox is small and portable, but has the headroom to accommodate high-end hardware like quad-core CPUs, dual-loop liquid cooling, and full-length graphics cards such as the AMD Radeon R9 295X2 and NVIDIA GeForce GTX TITAN Z GPU. The use of all standard components means the configuration possibilities for this small machine are endless.

With the FANG Battlebox you can arrive at your next LAN party ready to dominate. CYBERPOWERPC took all that gaming hardware and crammed it into a suitcase form factor. The FANG Battlebox's unique carrying handle and ideal weight distribution allows for easy transportation to LAN parties. It can even fit in airline overhead compartments after it's done attracting attention at the check-in line.

The portability of the FANG Battlebox allows it to function flawlessly in many environments because CYBERPOWERPC compartmentalized cooling in the chassis to help isolate and remove heat from various components efficiently and without obstruction. The FANG Battlebox also supports liquid cooled graphics cards and processors simultaneously.

The FANG Battlebox features a Mini-ITX motherboard packed with either AMD A-Series APUs or 4th Generation Intel Core processors, and supports the full range of graphics cards from both NVIDIA and AMD. It also has room for two high performance hard drives and up to 16 GB of DDR3 memory. All models have Wireless AC and Bluetooth connectivity, USB 3.0 ports, and Microsoft Windows 8.1 in the default configurations.

With its dual EZ Swap drive bays, the Battlebox thrives at work or play. Users just swap out their confidential business files stored on the drive and replace it with their game library. No tools are needed just slide the drive in the bay and you are set.

The base model FANG Battlebox is the I-100, which features an Intel Core i3-4150 Processor, 8 GB of memory, a 1 TB hard drive, and Intel HD Graphics 4400 for a price of $619. The Battlebox can be customized with a number of performance hardware upgrades such as discrete graphics cards, solid state drives and storage hard drives, memory, peripherals and business software to enhance your productivity. All CYBERPOWERPC FANG Battlebox systems include an industry best 3-year limited warranty. For more information see: http://www.cyberpowerpc.com/landingpages/FangBattleBox/.

They do offer upgrade options to a better PSU but really it's pretty common for boutique builders to do the same thing as makers of pre-builts do and hold the cost down by putting cheap PSUs in their PCs. I think it's because the PSU is the last thing most people look at when they're considering the value of the PC if they look at it beyond making sure that the wattage is enough. It gets about as much consideration as a power strip it seems. Before I started building my own rigs I had no idea. I just looked at GPU and CPU and figured that was all that mattered.
