Cyberpower PC Ultra 5 RX Pro AMD Gaming PC Review
Mike Sanders / 4 months ago
The Corsair Carbide Spec-Delta Black ATX RGB Gaming Mid-Tower comes in a deep black gloss finish. The front of the system has a plastic casing with angled vents to the base and top.
The side panel features a tinted acrylic window. I must admit that while this is nice, I do think it is perhaps a little too tinted. It’s legitimately hard to see inside without the RGB lighting being on. So, perhaps this fills a middle ground of having a tidy presentation when the system is turned off but allowing the RGB to shine through when switched on.
With a large ventilation panel to the top (with a magnetic anti-dust covering) the system chassis is a nice and solid choice. It does, of course, have a few little aesthetic touches.
While the chassis does have some nice aesthetic touches in terms of its angular design to the front and ventilation panels, there are of course a few little added touches. Most notably is the Cyberpower PC logo which is just to the base of the front of the case.
Despite this being (clearly) an aftermarket addition, it actually fits in really well and you at least have to credit it for doing that when so many other manufacturers would’ve just stuck anything with their name here.
Ports and Connections
The front (top) of the chassis has your main ‘regular’ system controls (as you might expect). These include two USB 3.1 ports, a single headphone/microphone 3.5mm port, a reset switch and the main power button.
Rear I/O Panel
The main I/O panel has all the connections you would usually expect to see. You have two standard USB 2.0 ports, 5 USB 3.1 ports, an ethernet port, your audio output/input bank, an old-style keyboard/mouse adaptor, and the main display output ports.
Remember, since this is a Ryzen 3000 processor it does come with an integrated Vega graphics adaptor and, as such, unlike older Ryzen designs, these can serve a purpose. Having that ‘BIOS Flashback’ switch, however, is a great bit of added protection to your motherboard.
The graphics card features 3 display port adaptors and a single HDMI port. The space below is part of the 2.5 slot design, well-known in the Radeon 5700 XT design which acts, essentially, as part of the ventilation.
Finally, you have the power supply to the base. This is fairly standard and as you can see operates with a standard on/off switch and 3-pin output. You are, incidentally, provided with a power cable suitable for your region.
Ventilation & Air Flow
Starting with the front ventilation, there are two main airflow intakes. Both have a nice angular design with one at the base and one at the top.
The one at the base is notably larger than the upper vent, but with 3 fans all bringing in nice and cool air, this should provide plenty of airflow. Albeit, no dust protectors appear to be included so a little ‘housekeeping’ may be necessary as the months of usage rolls by.
The system has 3 exhaust fans courtesy of the main rear exhaust (which is attached to the Corsair H45 AIO cooler) and two 120mm fans to the top of the system.
As noted earlier in this review, the top fans do have a magnetic dust cover which can be easily removed and cleaned. What is clear, however, is that with 3 fans coming in and 3 fans blowing out, this should have a nice and solid airflow. A factor of importance particularly for that AMD Radeon RX 5700 XT which is known to get a little warm.
So, taking the overall system aesthetics from an exterior standpoint, everything looks really good. This is a nice chassis that provides some excellent airflow and practical applications. All in all, we expect to see some nice and cool performance with some nice and cool aesthetics!
