define: Benchmark;

a standard or point of reference against which things may be compared or assessed.


So basically a 'benchmark' around here is simply a piece of software that is designed to 'max out' your hardware components such as your CPU, GPU or RAM. It loads your hardware to its maximum than gauges how 'well' or 'fast' is works while under this load, the hardware component is assigned a rank or 'score' and there you have it. A standard for measuring hardware performance.

Well I understand that. When I look @ a system built they give me benchmarks on different games. I just don't understand how running some program on your PC to find those benchmarks...

Hmmm, not sure I was understanding you properly than. Also, CPPCs 'benchmarks' are notoriously inaccurate, I wouldn't trust them. A simple google search will return more accurate results.

Well these programs are specially designed benchmark programs. Some games have a benchmark program coded right into them. So once these programs complete their 'tests' they are able to compile the results into a 'score' that is used as a way to gauge the computers performance comparatively to other systems.

Hope that helps.

Update:
Here is a pic where I removed my Apevia 900 Watt Power Supply.

Here is a pic where I removed the HDD, SSD, and both Cages from the floor of my tower. I was able to relocate one HDD cage directly under my DCrom Cage. The tower provides 4 locations to mount SSD's.

Here is the near complete photo with my new Corsair 850 Watt Power suplly and the correct Cooler Master fans on my radiator. I was able to mount both the 120mm LED fans on the floor of my tower.

Man that's a lot of room. Moved the HD cages up and added the bottom fans, good idea.

Love the room behind the MOBO for harness concealment.

Next build I can afford,,,, or should I say my wife lets me get, I will look for a case with built int removable filters, or look for a way to make then myself.

UNder the two cheap fans is room enough to add a 240mm filter (magnet). Both the powersupply and front 140mm fans are filtered. The ceiling is also filtered which is redundant as air is coming out of the tower up. I think the top filter is more for cosmetics. There is almost an inch behind the motherboard tray for hiding wires. For a standard configurated tower, this one was easy to work in and work with. Alot easier then my old Centurion 590 or my current Antec 900 v1.
