For a system costing £999, the Cyberpower Infinity X55 VX is a solid and well-balanced rig.
For starters, the system is built in a lovely tempered glass case which is exclusive to Cyberpower. With the addition of red LEDs inside the case, the chassis is illuminated very well and looks great.
One downside on the visual side of things is the lack of cable sleeving. The GPU 6-pin is entirely unsleeved, which makes its ugly yellow-and-black cabling extremely visible. Add this to the unattractive brown motherboard PCB and the aesthetic side of the Infinity X55 VX is spoiled a bit. In fairness, with the side panel and LEDs on, it is not that bad, but it is still not ideal is you are going to be looking at it everyday.
The component choice is well thought-through, however. A GTX 1060 and an Intel Core i5-6402P (a slightly faster i5-6400) provide the necessary grunt for 1080p and 1440p gaming, though 4K is always going to be out of the question unless you only play eSports titles or similarly undemanding games. These core components also run very quiet and cool, justifying Cyberpower’s decision to include just one case fan.
It is also good to see a NVMe drive at the price point, thanks to the Intel 600p. That 256GB drive, along with a 1TB mechanical hard drive, provide ample storage as well.
As such, it is easy to recommend the Cyberpower Infinity X55 VX. It has enough power for 1440p gaming, an NVMe drive and a tempered glass case, all while being affordable despite the increase of technology prices since the Brexit vote.
