Ryzen 5 1400 Gaming Performance Leaked Before Launch

AMD’s Ryzen 5 CPUs aren’t expected to launch until April 11 so up until now, benchmarks for the Ryzen 5 series were simulated by disabling cores on the octa-core Ryzen 7 series CPUs. However, according to a recent video released by Youtube channel Santiago Santiago, we get a glimpse at Ryzen 5 1400 performance in the flesh thanks to a retailer which appears to have jumped the gun on sales of the upcoming CPU.

In the video, the CPU was benchmarked with eight games: Battlefield 1 (DX12), Fallout 4, GTA 5, Hitman (DX12), Just Cause 3, Assassin’s Creed: Unity, The Witcher 3, and Rise of the Tomb Raider (DX 12). The test bench consists of an HIS Radeon RX [...]

Best Budget Gaming PC Build Under $800 [October 2013]

6 Core Powerhouse for the Budget Gamer

Well, it’s been a year since our last budget gaming build and I’ve received a ton of requests to update it, so your wish guys, is my command.

Here it is – the October 2013 Budget Gaming PC build for under $800!

Our goal this time around is identical to our goal for the original under $800 gaming build.

Most importantly however, we also wanted to do this at a budget. A budget of $800 or less. Could it be [...]

Review: CyberPowerPC Zeus EVO Lightning 2000 SE Gaming PC

Zeus, and Lightning, and, EVO, and, 2000, and SE (SElenium?)

You know, after reviewing a number of CyberPowerPC systems, I’ve always wondered how some of their naming schemes work. I mean, with a name comprised of badass sounding greek gods, natural disasters, adjectives, and numbers combined to form a single name that makes almost no sense, but sounds ridiculously awesome, it almost makes you wonder where the heck they come up with all these names.

Now, you’re probably asking why I’m even talking about CyberPowerPC’s system naming scheme. Well, that’s because today we’ll be reviewing a brand new system from CyberPowerPC, which [...]

CyberPowerPC Gamer Xtreme 4200 Review

Custom Built Monster at a DIY Price

Here at Custom PC Review, we generally don’t do too many reviews on pre-built systems. I’m a huge proponent of doing my own custom builds, but it’s understandable that not everyone has the time to spend building new systems and having the knowledge of building your own systems sometimes does come at a price – especially when all of your friends discover how much cheaper it is when you build a system for them (and invariably the issue of you becoming free tech support as soon as the system has any issues).

This is why today we’ll be reviewing a pre-built system from boutique PC builder, CyberPowerPC. While [...]
