CyberPower PC is a custom builder of performance gaming machines and sponsored the grand prize in OCC's Christmas Contest last year. Now, hot on the heels of Intel's release of its latest flagship desktop processor, CyberPower has some news of its own with the announcement of its Fang series of gaming machines. The new series includes the Black Mamba Venom and the Cobra Venom which feature the Intel Core i7 975 Extreme Edition CPU.
The Black Mamba takes a Cooler Master Storm Sniper case and stuffs it full of high-performance parts starting with a the Core i7 975 factory overclocked to 4.0GHz, a Gigabyte GA-EX58-UD5 Intel X58 motherboard and 6GB of Corsair Dominator DDR3 1600MHz memory. Throw in an Asetek water cooling system, a pair of Western Digital VelociRaptor drives in RAID 0, an additional 1.5TB drive for your data and top it off with two Nvidia GeForce GTX 285 graphics cards, and you've got some serious performance on your hands. The Cobra Venom is a bit more modestly configured though it's no slouch by any means. It features the same CPU running at stock speeds, but comes with a single 1TB hard drive, one GeForce GTX 285 videocard in an Azza Solano 1000 full-tower chassis.
CyberPower has set the starting price of the Black Mamba Venom at $3999US with the Cobra Venom coming in at $2999US and both are available immediately directly from CyberPower.
