Supplied with the Hyper Liquid Ultra 7 GTX Ti are all the various bits and bobs that you would get if you had purchased the parts separately and built it yourself. You'll also notice the remote control which changes the RGB lighting on the fly, and on the next page we'll look at how the system appears in various colours.
Whenever you're purchasing a pre-built system the need to have it arrive in one piece is paramount, and when the system is water cooled that need is even more acute. Fortunately Cyberpower have packed the internals with enough air pockets and the box itself with enough polystyrene that it is guaranteed to arrive in perfect condition. In the second photograph we have removed an awful lot and yet there are still air bags in every nook and cranny. Just take your time to carefully remove them from around the hard line water tubes and all will be well.
There are a fair number of cases available when purchasing the Hyper Liquid Ultra 7 GTX Ti and our review sample came with the Coolermaster Mastercase H500P which comes with two 200mm RGB front fans and a tempered glass side window.
The MSI Carbon has all the latest technologies built into it so you can be up and running in a matter of moments. There is no WiFi on our review sample although it is an option. Also worth noting that this particular breed of GTX 1080 Ti doesn't have a DVI output. A good reason to bring your monitor as up-to-date as your hardware.
Usually when we remove the back panel there is a whole raft of cables tucked away. It is the PC equivalent of the underneath of a childs bed when they've tidied their room. Not so with the Hyper Liquid Ultra 7 GTX Ti as the H500P's facilities and Cyberpower themselves have managed to keep almost everything totally out of sight. Only the beginnings of the always-too-short CPU power cable are able to be glimpsed. One day a PSU manufacturer will take a tape measure to a case and realise they always produce 8pin CPU power cables that are an inch or so too short, but it is not this day.
Finally freed from the many air pockets that kept the internals safe in its journey from Cyberpower to me, you can see the clear layout of the business side of the Hyper Liquid Ultra 7 GTX Ti. If the back was clean and minimalist, then the front is even more so. Well routed tubing, clear coolant and a monochrome aesthetic should allow the RGB lighting to really do its thing.
EK water blocks are almost the industry standard and with good reason as they look the business, cool efficiently and don't break the bank. It isn't just the water blocks that come from Edvard Konig's company as all the tubing and fittings do too.
Like most RGB based systems the Hyper Liquid Ultra 7 GTX Ti looks decent when it's switched off but powered up it comes alive. We know that you're eager to see it when it's on and in full flow (heh), so rather than keep you waiting let's look at it lit up, whereupon the clear GPU block and EK logo in the reservoir get to do their thing.
