After what seemed like forever, My pc arrived today. The shipping box showed signs of UPS loving the 50 lb box. The corners were rounded a little bit and it was pretty scuffed up. Thankfully nothing inside showed any signs of damage.

Waste of Money on the LED colored fans. Sure wish they would have left the CoolerMasters on the Radiator. http://s495.photobucket.com/user/MarsRosin/media/New%209590%20AMD%20Machine/P3060019_zps18778510.jpg.html">

What are benchmarks???


Posted By: SgtPepper
Date Posted: 23 Mar 2014 at 7:37am
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...


Posted By: SgtPepper
Date Posted: 23 Mar 2014 at 4:57pm
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.

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.

Man, I just found this thread again. Awesome set up. Which lights did you get? Are the fans loud? I'm wondering now if I should have gotten the duel fan set up for the MOBO cooler and the push pull style...

I got the 12inch cold cathode light. The fans are relatively quiet but now the clear cheap 120mm LED fans are starting to rattle. I have a couple thermaltake 120's that arent LED fans that I am going to install when I get time. I hate losing the red LED's but i cant stand the noise from these cheap ones.

Yeah, I can understand the rattle issue. Doesn't your cathode give off enough shine for you though? I just did a major review on my case and found that it comes with a 200mm fan that has a blue LED on it. Something CP should add to it's advertising of the case. It might just sway more to get it. But then again, I guess folks like myself should do better research.

I also noticed you changed your CPU cooling fans. Do you like them better? I'm kicking myself in the butt for not getting the 240mm CPU cooling. I didn't realized there was spot on the case designed for them. I'm finding out a lot of minor things I would change now that I've checked for the fifth time on my build. LOL, I noticed CP doesn't even offer the Maximum Corsair AIR Series AF120 Performance Edition 120MM High Airflow Case Fan [+29] (Maximum Mix ENERMAX TB SILENCE 140mm+120mm Performance cooling with a low-noise profile Fans [+10]) now. I wonder if there was an issue with cooling with the silent fan set up. I talked to Justin about it and voiced my concerned while it was in production. He told me they would test it and advised me if there was an issue. I'm guessing there wasn't.

Oh well, I'll make changes if I need too like yourself. Good luck with the build man...Thumbs%20Up

I had ordered max fans with LED's so they swapped out the coolermaster fans for their cheap LED's. That is why I changed them. I complained to support and the sent me the correct High presure pwm fans for my radiator. Thats why I had to move stuff around to suit my needs.

Well, It has been a while since I dropped by the forums. I am happy to say my machine is humming right along without any major issues.

The 120 Gig SSD filled up fast, once I started installing programs. I have it filled to 90 gigs and I installed a 240 gig for my gaming programs.
This coming tax return I will be installing 1 or 2 Evo 500 gig ssd's.
The 9590 doesn't overclock past 4.8 if all 8 cores are active. The R9-280X HIS video card never gets past 45 C while gaming. I use the HIS program and re curved the fans a little to keep it from throttling while on BF4. The CoolerMaster Radiator is working fine. No weird noises and no overheating problems.
Almost a year and I am still Happy with my purchase.

Hey Dude, good to see you back on the board.

Glad things are holding up fine. Glad you got the fan curve set, that was one issue on this series GPU. Since it already an R9 series, did they ever come up with a bios update and are you running the newest drivers?

Have a great X-mas, dude.

I never did find an updated bios for the card. HIS makes their own program/ app designed for their cards. (ASUS, Gigabyte and MSI all make their own versions too).
It is seriously tweakable from clocks to voltages. I jumped both clocks an additional 10 or 20 then recurved the fans with their program. BF4 maps vary wildly. Mantle loads the map faster but FPS isn't as good as I had thought. Seems it works best with weaker quad core processors and different AMD cards.
