Gamdias Cyclops X1-1200P

Performance: 9.7/10 (40% of the final score)
The performance on the Cyclops X1 was great. It proved itself not just on its promise of Platinum efficiency, but also in its ripple regulation which even exceeds Intel's standard. The components were high quality and the Cyclops proved it can stand up to the high-performance needs of gamers.

Features: 10/10 (20% of the final score)
The feature list for the Cyclops is the crown jewel of the unit. It boasts a magnificent chassis that looks great with its clever laser etched pattern that helps provide improved ventilation. The fan includes RGB LEDs to help light up any gamer's case with 26 effects. The fan controller helps to keep the unit quiet when not gaming. It has more cables than we could ever use, and the modular support of the unit ensures that your system stays decluttered. Overall, it's an impressive feature set that may be the most impressive we've ever seen on the test bench.

Components/Build Quality: 10/10 (20% of the final score)
The component choice of the Cyclops to no surprise is very high quality. 100% Japanese capacitors which most of all appear to be Nippon ensure high reliability. The build quality within the chassis is sound and does not appear to be sloppy. On top of this, GAMDIAS offers a whopping 10-year warranty to stand behind the product should any issues ever arise.

Value: 9.9/10 (20% of the final score)
At the time of writing the GAMDIAS Cyclops X1 appears to be unavailable for purchase. However, from what we are told, its MSRP will be $279.99. If you are looking for a high-quality unit with a unique appearance, we wager the cyclops would be worth a slight premium.
