Over two decades ago, CyberPowerPC started with the passion to build simply the best and fastest gaming PCs on the market. The founders Eric Cheung and Stanley Ho knew that just like it is with cars, stock wasn’t going to be good enough for the enthusiast gamer and with overclocking, the possibilities were limitless. After becoming the premier overclocked system builder in North America, we introduced the FTW series of overclocked systems over 10 years ago.
Today we’ve expanded to a more holistic overclocking approach that includes not only the CPU but also the GPU, component quality and software tuning under the new brand:
Let’s first discuss how overclocking work and how does it affect your gaming. At the most basic level most of your core components, CPU, GPU, memory and storage, are all dependent on speed as a measure of performance. Generally we want all of them to be faster and this is always achieved by pushing more voltage into it, the only problem is
If CPUs and GPUs for example run anywhere between 80° to 90° with an ordinary fan heatsink but as soon as you put in just one volt that temperature can spike to 120° or more. The only solution is to counter that heat with a
Understanding this balance takes, time, skill and testing. So one wrong move and you can destroy your system in a split second. That’s why it’s important to rely on experts at CyberPowerPC to do the testing and tuning for you.
Overclocking your components can provide varying levels of performance increase in your gaming. This is most generally measured by computer’s average FPS (Frame Per Second) and this changes depending on a number of factors, if the game is CPU or GPU dependent, if the game utilizes multi-core processing or not, and if FPS gives the game a competitive edge. All these factors determine how effective the difference overclocking can make.
CyberPowerPC offers three stage kits to meet your performance need starting with the entry level AMP Stage I kit which offers CPU overclocking service with approved overclocking compatible components. At our highest level, the AMP Stage III Kit offers a complete system performance package includes Overclocking of all primary components (CPU, GPU, Memory), high performance liquid cooling solutions, top grade motherboards and much more, all to ensure a guaranteed performance boost.
The stage 1 Kit is the first level of performance boost which focuses on the CPU. A successful overclocking of the CPU requires 3 parts. First is an overclockable unlocked CPU which includes any of the Intel K-Series processors. The second key component is the cooling which is essential to mitigating the heat created by overclocking. Lastly, having a motherboard that can properly distribute the increased voltages consistently and reliably is the final key component.
The stage 2 Kit is the second level of performance boost which in addition to the CPU overclocking now expands to GPU overclocking. We hand pick GPUs that have the overclocking headroom and proven cooling solution capable of sustaining a reliable GPU overclock.
The stage 3 Kit is the final level of performance boost which overclocks every component capable of being overclocked from the CPU to GPU and even the memory to ensure there are no possible bottleneck anywhere in the system’s performance potential.
CyberPowerPC guarantee the performance and reliability of all our +AMP certified systems. We can guranteed that the overclocking percentages and FPS we claim are the minimum you will get under most situations. Additionally, your CPU is protected in the case that overclocking damages the CPU in any way. We will repair and replace your CPU for you at no additional cost since your system is covered by the Intel® Performance Tuning Protection Plan.
