iBUYPOWER Erebus GT Gaming Computer System

We brought you the news from CES when the Next Generation Erebus GT was announced. Now the new iBUYPOWER Erebus GT Gaming PC is available for purchase. Gaming computers have always been expensive, but iBuyPower took special care to lower the price of the new Erebus GT to make this product available to a wider audience. While the high-end configurations can cost several thousand dollars, these systems start as low as $899. Even at that cheap price, you get a quad core cpu, GeForce GTX 550Ti 1GB graphics, 8GB DDR3-1600 memory, 1TB hard drive, and more.

Unveiled at CES 2012, Erebus GT is a low-cost revision of iBUYPOWER’s premium system named for the God Darkness and features a proprietary liquid cooling solution powered by Koolance that provides epic overclocking potential. The rugged Erebus GT features an advanced cooling system that includes three large radiators and 13mm high flow tubing to circulate 4.5 gallons of coolant per minute.

“Our engineering team worked hard to get Erebus GT to market quickly after receiving such a warm reception at CES 2012,” said Darren Su, Executive Vice President of iBUYPOWER. “The improvements from the first generation Erebus were the direct result of customer feedback and include a smaller footprint without sacrificing cooling ability and a lower starting price.”

Like its larger sibling, the Erebus GT features a steel chassis frame, with aluminum top and front paneling. Erebus GT also retains the top fill port, built-in reservoir that can be checked through the front panel, and transparent top fins redirect exhaust and noise to the rear of the chassis.

The Erebus GT’s compact cooling system features wider radiators than the XL’s (140mm vs 120mm) to offset the cooling capacity loss from overall shorter radiators (top radiator from 4×120 to 3×140, rear from 2×120 to 1×140), as well as the removal of the front radiator. The result is a smart case design that creates unidirectional air flow to help the cooling system reach a maximum rated heat dissipation of 2,500W.


The lowest priced Erebus GT Gaming PC is the Erebus GT-FX1, which starts at just $899. However, it has some impressive features despite the low price.
