DESIGN AND FEATURES


The CYBERPOWERPC BattleBox Ultimate SLC8600A has a neat front view

The CYBERPOWERPC Battlebox Ultimate SLC8600A Gaming PC has a quality metallic white case distinctively designed with the tempered glass window on the sides to enable you to see the design wizardly inside. We have to admit that this machine is very well engineered with some neat cabling management, eye-catching LED lighting system and an alluring appearance. It looked awesome sitting on my desk and is a definite turn on.

The front case is all white, LED-lit with the bold CYBERPOWERPC logo standing prominently near the top. One can change the colors to their desire by playing with the light button on the case roof, with a choice of up to 10 colors to choose from. First timers may feel the colors are too exposed to the eye but after some minutes my eyes had adapted and didn’t feel the strain.

The Liquid Cooling system can be seen through the window, while the vents at the top and upper front do not tamper with its beauty.

Keyboard and Mouse

The keyboard on the other hand is your typical gaming keyboard- colorful with a 7 color RGB system, buttons brightly illuminated and have comfortable keys, enough to get the job done. Further, the gaming mouse has an equally good lighting system, an ok design, and a comfortable grip – but not a game changer nonetheless.

We felt the mouse to be somewhat unsuited for persons with rather large hands, nor was it in our tastes the best gaming mouse that could be found. While not the best mouse, it’ll still serve you well until you feel the need to get another one. A good suggestion would be the Logitech MX Master 2S. However, we’ll leave that to your desecration.

A view of the CYBERPOWERPC BattleBox Ultimate SLC8600A see-through side panel

Standing at 18.5 x 8.3 x 18.3 inches, the tower is not over-sized but doesn’t save you much space either. Further, space is seldom an issue for most desktop lovers – let alone gamers… provided it gets the job done, and done right for that matter.

PORTS


With the CYBERPOWERPC Battlebox Ultimate SLC8600A Gaming PC, one gets an ample supply of ports sufficient to cater for most, if not all their needs.

The CYBERPOWERPC BattleBox Ultimate SLC8600A port selection at the front dash (2 USB 3.0 ports)

It comes with a Wi-Fi/Bluetooth PCle card which allows you to connect wirelessly. With the Bluetooth, one can share stuff from your personal devices with the PC easily. Still, despite being a desktop, you’ll enjoy wireless Internet connectivity thanks to the in-built Wi-Fi adapter. However one has to screw in two included antennas into the card in the back. Wired connectivity is also covered thanks to the good old RJ-45 LAN port.

Everyone loves USB – and the more they are, the better. Our review machine comes with 6 USB 3.0 ports and 2 USB 2.0 ports. But if that is not enough, one can as well grab a USB Hub to cover the shortfall. On the downside, the CYBERPOWERPC Battlebox lacks a USB Type C port.

Do you prefer to work/play behind multiple displays? Well, that too is covered with the presence of a HDMI, DVI and Display port.

The system doesn’t come with an inbuilt DVD, drive so ensure you have a portable DVD drive for installations or playing DVDs. Conveniently, you don’t need to do any installations at the beginning as everything comes pre-installed.

PERFORMANCE


The CYBERPOWERPC Battlebox Ultimate SLC8600A Gaming PC with an assortment of arsenal doubtlessly dazzles. You would hardly expect anything less with the mighty Intel core i7-7700K 4.2 GHz processor (Kabylake, 8M Cache, Turbo speed up to 4.50 GHz) and the 32GB DDR4 RAM. All these sits on the MSI Z270-A PRO Motherboard, one of the World’s leading motherboards with optimized power design and special BIOS options that ensure a rock solid performance, maximum efficiency, and admirable stability.

As you would expect, the system boots up pretty fast thanks to the 240GB Solid State Drive (SSD). In addition to that, it comes with a 3 TB (3000 GB) SATA hard drive gives you ample storage for video, music plus games and helps to stabilize performance.

Graphics are on the other hand sufficiently catered for thanks to the NVIDIA GTX 1080 Ti chip. Considered as an enthusiast level graphics unit, it has a rated board TDP of 220W and operates at a memory clock speed of 1376MHz. It can handle resolutions of up to 3840 x 2160 thus capable of handling multiple monitors and VR sets. Thanks to this unit, one can enjoy 4K resolution games at 60 fps. The system crushes games like fallout 4, Ark, Overwatch and Player Unknown’s Battlegrounds on high settings.

Remarkable CYBERPOWERPC BattleBox Ultimate SLC8600A ventilation cools the system while gaming.

If you are looking at a machine for multi-tasking, you will get a legendary performance in Graphics, Animation, 3D modeling, and videography. And if you’re fascinated with Netflix, the CYBERPOWERPC BattleBox Ultimate SLC8600A Gaming PC works like charm.

We also appreciated how silently the machine ran. When under load, it purrs as if to alert you that it’s busy and enjoying it- No cracking, annoying noises. You will love it. All along, the maintenance-free Liquid Cooling system keeps the heat at bay. Additional natural cooling comes from the vents strategically position on the case.

Finally, CyberPowerPC provides booster software within the CD. We recommend its installation if you desire even a better performance.
