Cincinnati Bengal System Overview


Isn't it a beauty! The carbon look is gorgeous and looks, as everything does, much better in real-life than it does in photos. Although ParcelFarce damaged it so badly that even the corners of the Phobya reservoir cover have broken, thankfully the res itself wont leak any of its Mayhem coolant.

So if you've ever wondered how much potential exists in a system such as this when freed from the constraints we place upon our bench setups, here are a couple of jaw-dropping demonstrations. PC Mark 7 with the power of the Corsair Force GTs and Zotac GTX590 behind it easily demolishes the Rampage IV Extreme LGA2011 setup. Proof you don't need to break the bank for a whole system when some choice upgrades could spark new life in to your current setup.


We all have run the Windows 7 performance test, and we've all wondered exactly what it would take to maximise it. We're damn close here and with some quicker RAM and a more concerted effort at overclocking the CPU, I should see 7.9 across the board.

All in all the Bengal rig is a peach. It's a damn shame that the ATCS 840 was so brutalised in the post, but it's a testament to the extraordinary engineering behind modern hardware that even the kind of knock that can bend the chassis, didn't affect the hardware one iota. Of course none of this would be possible without the many companies who helped put it all together, and the secret squirrel abilities of Tom.

So of course I have to thanks Corsair, Asrock, Intel, Kingston, Phobya, BitFenix, BeQuiet and Zotac for their assistance with bringing a little bit of Cincinnati to Southern England.

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
