Cyberpower PC Infinity X66 GTX Review

Closer Look (Internals)
Unscrewing the tempered glass panel, we can reveal the internals. There’s a definite trend towards a dark theme inside, though we’d be lying if we didn’t say the brown MSI Z370-A PRO motherboard didn’t look a little ugly against the other components. It’s helped a lot once the tinted tempered glass panel is back in place, where it’s much less noticeable, but a black motherboard would be much preferred. Other than the brown motherboard, though, we’re very pleased with the internal layout and cable routing.

The GPU chosen by Cyberpower is an MSI NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1660 Ventus XS 6G OC, sporting a small factory overclock over the reference and a custom-designed twin-fan cooler with a fancy backplate.
Tucked away neatly underneath is a tiny WiFi network card, would’ve been nice to use a black PCB, again, but it’s not nearly as noticeable as the motherboard.

Moving to the top half of the MSI motherboard, we have an Intel Core i5 9400F CPU which boasts a stock clock speed of 2.9GHz with a turbo boost speed of 4.1GHz, when thermal and power limits allow. Helping to keep the 9400F cool is a Corsair Hydro Series H60 liquid cooling loop, venting out of the rear of the case. Residing to the right of the CPU is 16GB (2x 8GB) of Corsair Vengeance LPX DDR4 memory, clocked at 2400MHz with CAS timings of 16-16-16-39.

For fast-access storage, Cyberpower have called upon the 256GB Intel 760p NVMe M.2 SSD, this drive promises sequential read and write speeds of 3210MB/s and 1315MB/s respectively, as well as upwards of 200,000 IOPS in both read and write.

In the front of the chassis are a trio of Corsair RGB fans, drawing air through a partially ventilated front fascia. Connected to the bottom-right of the motherboard is a motherboard buzzer, an odd addition that we rarely see. We’d personally remove this and store it somewhere until it’s required as it looks a little out of place.

Finally, removing the rear panel we can get a better look at Cyberpower’s cable management and we have to say, it’s very decent. We can also see the Corsair CX650 power supply with its 80+ Bronze rating and 650W peak output. This is mounted upside down with an air intake on the bottom of the case, complete with a removeable dust filter.
