It's been a little while coming but finally, now the huge amount of Graphic Card releases has slowed down, we can bring you the overview of the Cincinnati Bengal rig.
For those of you who don't frequent the forums or Youtube you might not know that this was a surprise system built by Tom for me as a thanks for the swathes of work that I do for the site. Obviously Tom is the face of the site, but as always there is a lot of behind the scenes stuff. Anyway with a combination of some wonderful companies and much secrecy, I am the very proud owner of a gorgeous water-cooled system.
Rather than just go "wahoo" and then get on and play we thought you might like a little overview of a system freed from the constraints of our bench testing procedure. With so many new bits of hardware on the market it can be very tempting to think that a high end system on current technology wont be enough. Let's have a shuftie.
Now of course there are a couple of serious bits of hardware in this, that definitely don't come under the 'average system' specifications. They are of course the dual Corsair Force GT's that I reviewed earlier, and the Zotac GTX590 with waterblock.
Intel Core i7-2600K @ 4.6GHz
ASRock Z68 Extreme4 Gen3
16GB Kingston T1 1600MHz
2x Corsair Force GT 240GB in RAID0
Phobya 360 Radiator
Phobya Dual-bay Reservoir
Mayhem Custom Coolant
CoolerMaster ATCS 840
BitFenix Spectre Orange LED Fans
BeQuiet Dark Power 850W PSU
Now I'm just going to rattle through a few tests to give a flavour of what it has to offer.
