Cyberpower Infinity Achilles GT System Review

When purchasing a system the most important aspect is that it arrives at your door in the finest possible condition. Cyberpower go to extraordinary lengths to make sure that this is the case. The GT is packed into the C70 box, which is then put in an incredibly sturdy and MUCH larger box, with all the gaps filled with airbags. So many that when packing it back up after our review it was a struggle to get them all back in. Four layers of protection and a wise choice of courier all but guarantee that your purchase will be flawless when it arrives.
It's not only on the outside that care has been taken. Every bit of the internals is protected with air bags too. So much that the likelihood of anything jiggling in transit is all but eliminated.
Once things have carefully been removed we get our first look at the Infinity Achilles GT. Straight away you can see a theme. The Akasa fans and coolant are green to match the logo of the CX PSU and Palit GTX780.It's the little details that can make all the difference. Everything is tucked away neatly thanks to some time and effort on the part of Cyberpower to make the most of the cable routing in the C70 case.
Utilising the silver Corsair Vengeance means it blends well with the silver on the GTX780 cooler. Again it's those little things. It would have been easy to just plug any colour sticks in because the green is the dominant colour, but it's nice to see that some thought has been put into the choice of hardware.
For the eagle-eyed and unaware amongst you, you'll always get some air pockets in a water loop that's been bumped about in the post. They'll vanish as soon as it's switched on. So don't worry that the CPU block looks like it hasn't got anything flowing to it.
Thanks to the tight cable management it's nearly impossible to move the drives without unplugging them, but SSDs aren't the most photogenic of hardware anyway.
