The impressively name Infinity Xtreme Cube from CyberPower is a rather impressive machine and not just because of their use of a 400GB Intel 750 M.2 PCIe SSD for storage. The system is built on a Gigabyte X99M-Gaming 5 with an i7-5820K processor, 16GB of HyperX DDR4-2400 in quad channel and a GTX 970 for video, not to mention the pair of 1TB HDDs in RAID0 for long term storage. The components are housed in a Corsair Air 240 case 470x343x381mm (18.5×13.5×15") in size, not the easiest case to install your components in which makes it nice that someone does it for you. You pay for the configuration and three year warranty but for those who want a working system to arrive at their door this review at Kitguru is worth looking at. Hopefully based on the review CyberPower will make a slight change to the UEFI settings in future, changing the PCIe slot Configuration from AUTO to GEN3.
"Today we look at a powerful, yet diminutive new system from UK system builder CyberPower called the Infinity Xtreme Cube. This system is built around the Gigabyte X99M-Gaming 5 motherboard – installed inside the tiny Corsair Air 240 chassis."

And to think that the zotac
And to think that the zotac Zbox with the 970m is almost as fast in terms of gaming and costs way less… and you can hold it in your palm.
Not to mention VESA mount it to the back to a 34″ widescreen monitor that supports gsync… and have NO pc case around at all.

Tech has gotten too cheap and too smart for a lot of crap like this to make sense.
Makes me think of the shield.. 400 bucks.
I was excited for it.
A month later I got a 150 dollar windows tablet that plays 80 of my steam games no issue.. Natively, and has steam in-game streaming and.. Anything…
As far as mobile pc gamers, I know which makes sense to me… HA.

Jeez, 60 litres for a case?
Jeez, 60 litres for a case? That’s not “small in stature”, that’s F*****G gargantuan!
Awkward as shit also, it’s
Awkward as shit also, it’s one of those sizes that “almost fits theres” more often than not.
I don’t consider these cube cases mini-itx.
I don’t understand why you
I don’t understand why you would want to use HDDs in RAID 0 for “long-term” storage anymore. That’s kink of like asying “I build houses with cards to keep my valuables in.
I suppose it’s a matter of cash with the HDDs, but RAID0? Really?
The target market for these
The target market for these boxes would probably bemoan the lack of it, even if RAID1 might make more sense.
