Cincinnati Bengal System Overview


Cincinnati Bengal System Overview


Of course the heart of any system, and the part that affects the gaming performance more than any other by a huge margin is the graphics card, and the Bengal rig has a Zotac GTX590 beating at the heart of it. The block is magnificent, keeping the card at a frosty 44°C maximum no matter what I've thrown at it, and as you'll see from the bottom graph that's a fair bit of stuff.

3D Mark is always a fun test to run, mainly because you can set it going and make a coffee, and nerds like me are 50% coffee at all times. 30000 H Marks and 20000 X Marks allow huge resolutions and anti-aliasing without grinding everything to a halt, and even 3D Mark 11 doesn't really put the GTX590 under any pressure.


For comparison purposes (and because they're good titles) some of the games are the same as those we bench with here at OC3D, but a couple of my own time-sinks are included because they're damn fine games too. The buggy but still fun F1 2011, and the ultra-popular Skyrim.

Skyrim deserves a special mention here because the 60FPS average is at maximum in-game settings, with Ambient Occlusion turned on in the nVidia control panel and the latest set of 2K HD textures. Eye candy to the max.

I just downloaded PCMark 7 and hit 6,000 points on the nose on the 1st run with my daily use system: PCM7

ASUS Maximus IV Extreme

Intel i7-2600K at 5.01GHz. w/Corsair H100 cooler (less than 60C fully loaded)

Crucial M4 256GB SSD x 1

EVGA GTX590 x 2 in Quad-SLi (around 70C fully loaded)

Mushkin Redline DDR3-1866MHz 4 x 4GB

I guess I need to watercool this thing sometime and see what it does when seriously OC'd!

Cincinnati Bengals black and orange? A little early for Halloween isn't it? Or is there some other annual celebration over in old Blighty of which I'm unaware? Quote

That is one awesome system. Really love the orange and black theme, especially how the orange coolant looks in the loops. Always happy to see Tom's amazing work on the systems he builds. Quote

Is an outstanding rig. Be nice if some company did builds in team colors. (this is where someone links to something I've missed)

Best of luck in getting WEI 7.9 across the board tho Quote

Its a good build, but ive never been a fan of carbon wrap. it doesnt flow round small corners great at all, it creases into little bits.Quote
