    Making of PC TeK Reviews Benchmark Rig

    Making of PC TeK Reviews Benchmark Rig

    It has been about two years since I started a reviewing and got a great response from all of you guys and I am very thankful for all your support and feedbacks.

    So now it?s time for implementation of one such great feedback.

    Making of PC TeK Reviews Benchmark Rig. A static PC hardware dedicated for Graphic Cards and different storage solution reviewing and benchmarking.
    For this build, I have decided to use my Phase Changer Rig as case and cooling solution. I have made this case a few years back and till now was lying unused.

    The Phase Changer Rig ?Build

    About Phase Change cooling and why I choose it for Benchmark Rig

    Phase change cooling works on the same principle as refrigerators and Air conditioners do. A compressor is used to change the state of a chemical refrigerant (gas compressed to liquid state) from liquid to vapors, and as this happens an endothermic reaction occurs where heat is absorbed causing the temperature to drop. The compressed liquid refrigerant is forced at high pressure through copper capillary tubing into an evaporator chamber which is a low-pressure area and evaporates back into gaseous form, absorbing heat in an endothermic reaction (it gets very cold). The evaporator chamber in a phase change cooling system just happens to be the block of copper which is mounted onto the CPU.

    This phase changer cooling solution will provide the Benchmark Rig extreme overclocking capabilities removing any CPU bottleneck issues while reviewing or benchmarking Graphic cards, Memories and storage solutions. On the other hand, while overclocking with a standard water-cooled system, the CPU temperatures will never go below ambient levels. Whereas Phase Changer will cool a processor to below ambient temperatures ( in my case up to -30C), and this appeals to the zest for overclocking ability as an enthusiast myself. An overclocking session with LN2 will last for few hours only, with all the hassle of again and again mounting the LN2 pot and pouring of LN2. But with this Benchmark Rig, we have the convenience of easy and Extreme Overclocking, even 24/7 packed within a desktop tower case.

    After listening to the build idea, GIGABYTE India came forward to support the build by sponsoring one of their top of the line motherboard, the GIGABYTE Z170X-Gaming G1 Motherboard.

    INTEL India provided ?Intel Skylake Core i7 6700K Processor? for this build.

    GIGABYTE Xtreme Gaming India supporting the build with Gigabyte GeForce GTX 1070 G1 Gaming card .

    For all the power needs, Cooler Master India provided us with an 80 PLUS Gold certified ?V1000? PSU.

    Build Log

    Some OC Results
    Z170X-Gaming G1 Motherboard has proven its caliber and rock solid performance at extreme temperature, resulting in high benchmark scores.

    Helped me achieve 48th position globally with 5301.27 MHz on Intel Core i7 6700K under CPU Frequency Core i7 6700K ranking at

    XTU - 1396 marks - Core i7 6700K @ 5090MHz. RANK: 1894th out of thousands

    Aquamark - 414702 marks - Gigabyte GeForce GTX 1070 G1 Gaming card @ 1630/1820MHz with 5th rank globally

    Catzilla - 576p - 47379 marks - Gigabyte GeForce GTX 1070 G1 Gaming card @ 1630/1820MHz Scoring 80th rank Global 1X GPU and 14th in GEFORCE GTX 1070 rank

    Will update more.

    Overall this build is super good for benching and reviewing purpose. Will last long giving balanced results for Graphics Cards, RAMs and SSD benchmarks.
