CyberPower Gamer Infinity Silent Edition review

£749 inc VAT

Manufacturer: CyberPower

Our Rating: We rate this 3.5 out of 5

The ultra-quiet CyberPower Gamer Infinity Silent Edition has plenty to offer, despite a disappointing benchmark result.

The ultra-quiet CyberPower Gamer Infinity Silent Edition has plenty to offer, despite a disappointing benchmark result.

Housed in the same NXZT hush case as the Mesh Matrix II 920, CyberPower's Gamer Infinity Silent Edition is far quieter than most of the PCs that grace our Test Centre.

Large, slow-moving fans keep noise to a minimum and cool both the CyberPower Gamer Infinity Silent Edition's power supply and the case itself. The processor cooler is also a highly efficient, quiet model. Any escaping noise is then absorbed by the soundproofing material fitted into the case.

In common with many PC manufacturers at this price point, CyberPower has plumped for Intel's Core 2 Duo E8600 CPU. The Gamer Infinity Silent Edition's WorldBench 6 score of 112 points was therefore disappointing and surprising, given that this chip still offers the best performance for the money. Close inspection revealed that the CyberPower's performance was being affected by Winzip 10.0.

The CyberPower Gamer Infinity Silent Edition's gaming scores were more in line with our expectations; its HD 4850 graphics card produced framerates that compare well with the competition.

The CyberPower Gamer Infinity Silent Edition's 22in Fujitsu-Siemens display is an excellent and eyecatching inclusion, with its brilliant white casing illuminated by a blue LED. This screen delivers a decent image and features a comprehensive selection of inputs, including VGA, DVI, HDMI, composite video and S-video.

Unfortunately, this monitor also provides the only audio output for the CyberPower Gamer Infinity Silent Edition, via a rather small pair of internal speakers.
