CyberPower PC’s Zeus SFF Ready to Compete

CES 2013 is a great showing for CyberPower PC. On top of unveiling their high powered gaming notebook, the Fang Book, and a brand new cooling system that enthusiasts will be proud of, CyberPower is bringing to the masses the Zeus SFF. A small form factor PC about the size of a gaming console, the Zeus SFF is meant to compete with market entries like Alienware’s X51, the forthcoming first party Steam Box, and the various forthcoming third party Steam Boxes (which may or may not include Xi3’s offering, Piston, debuted this week). All signs point to small form factor boxes being the next hot market.

Customizable from CyberPower PC, the Zeus SFF sports Intel’s Z77 Express chipset and the latest and greatest 3rd Generation Core prcoessors, the Zeus SFF is perfect for any sort of computing task you want to throw at it. Those interested can find themselves with a number of CPU options ranging from Intel’s dual core i3 processors all the way up to the i7, up to 16GB of RAM, a number of hard drive options, and an AMD Radeon 7750 GPU. The Zeus SFF even has features many mid and full towers still lack. The most notable of those features is the inclusion of two USB 3.0 ports on the front of the cool aluminum case.

Another important thing to mention is that Intel’s Performance Tuning Protection Plan is available on these machines. For those of you unfamiliar with this effort, it boils down to the fact that Intel will replace your processor one time, hassle-free if it fails outside of standard Intel specifications. This protection plan is available for both the i5 and the i7 options, but unfortunately not for the i3.

All things said, the Zeus SFF looks like a slick machine that can be customized and purchased at entirely reasonable prices. The basic configuration can be found at at mere $799 and finds itself shipping on January 29. The most powerful configuration, featuring the Intel Core i7-3770k and a 512GB OCZ Vertex 4, will set potential buyers back nearly double that at roughly $1,413 and also ship on January 29.
