Intel Alder Lake-S alias Core i-12000 is the expected big step for Intel in many areas in the form of the first three models Core i9-12900K, Core i7-12700K and Core i5-12600K.
The CPUs offer much more performance in almost all disciplines than their predecessors, the IPC increase in the P-Cores also ensures very good results, especially in single-core scenarios and games - over 40 percent growth in single-core benchmarks Within less than two years / generations, of which almost 20 compared to its direct predecessor, Intel has returned to first place in both disciplines. Multi-core scenarios also benefit from additional threads.
In the end, Alder Lake-S won the gaming crown with the fast, but thirsty and very large P-Cores. The gains are not only clear compared to the predecessor, the competitor is also kept in check almost everywhere. One year after the market launch of Ryzen 5000 at the upper end of the range, however, that was also necessary. The bottom line is that Intel Alder Lake-S is still a big hit for Intel. The CPUs bring significantly more life to the market than previous models and with the price advantage especially compared to the 12 and 16 core Ryzen from competitor AMD.
The question of the right mainboard for Alder Lake-S with the new LGA 1700 socket is quickly clarified today: DDR4 is not only more than sufficient, but in many cases even faster than DDR5 and in the end it is definitely much cheaper in the overall package. Even slightly overclocked DDR5 memory doesn't stand a chance against the solid DDR4-3200 setups.

The Enermax Liqmax III 360 ARGB complete water cooling combines first-class performance with a stylish design. The CPU cooler is equipped with digitally addressable RGB LED lighting that can be synchronized via the mainboard. The three 120 RGB fans specially developed for use on radiators generate high static pressure and bright illumination.
The Enermax Liqmax III 360 ARGB complete water cooling at a glance:
Digitally addressable RGB LED lighting on CPU block and fan
360 mm aluminum radiator for maximum cooling performance
Three 120 mm ARGB fans with a static pressure of 1.98 mm H2O
Max. 122.5 m³ / h delivery volume at max. 1600 rpm
Easy handling thanks to flexible hoses with kink protection
Compatible with common AMD & Intel sockets
Even the Liqmax III RGB 240 can offer a respectable cooling performance and outperform some 240 mm models from the competition. The Liqmax III ARGB 360 goes one step further. The 360 mm radiator cools significantly better, especially when the fan speed is reduced. And there are also clear differences in the lighting effect. The regular RGB lighting with the restriction to one color at the same time is almost simple. The ARGB variant is more colorful and is just right for users who want particularly varied lighting. A clear plus is that, unlike the RGB version, a controller is included. The lighting can also be controlled independently of the mainboard.

The more pixels, the greater the data load, the better the Geforce RTX 3090 positions itself. Although the graphics card does not manage to turn every unplayable scenario into a liquid feast, the differences compared to an overclocked Geforce RTX 2080 Ti are more than clear - and we're talking about the fastest graphics card that was available between early 2019 and mid-2020. In the end, one thing is clear: No matter what task you entrust the RTX 3090 with, it can do it. Lack of memory is absolutely not an issue in games, ever. At best, we managed to address 21 of the 24 GiByte, but in the deep red Fps slide show area.
If you are seriously toying with a Geforce RTX 3090, you should therefore also think about a new monitor. Whether native Ultra HD or 5K using DSR on a WQHD screen: New games benefit greatly from finer scanning and thus shine in the best possible splendor. But that's not all, the additional pixels help the GA102 to utilize its numerous FP32 arithmetic units. After the recent measurements, we are finally convinced that Ampere graphics cards will age excellently, as they can cope with future workloads (including refined denoising) better than previous GPU architectures. The relative weakness at low resolutions then becomes a strength. The Geforce RTX 3090 is therefore a bright future, while the RTX 3080 will have problems sooner or later. Your computing power is sufficient for extreme cases, but the storage capacity is a stumbling block.

SAMSUNG SSD PM9A1 1TB, M.2, design Solid State Module (SSM), form factor M.2 2280, interface M.2 / M-Key (PCIe 4.0 x4), read 7000MB / s, write 5100MB / s SLC-Cached IOPS 4K read / write 1000k / 850k, memory modules 3D-NAND TLC, Samsung, 136 layers (V-NAND v6), reliability prognosis 1.5 million hours (MTBF), Samsung Elpis (S4LV003) controller, 8 channels, 1GB cache (LPDDR4), SLC cache, NVMe 1.3c protocol, data protection functions 256bit AES, TCG Opal 2.0, power consumption 0.035W (idle), 0.005W (sleep mode), special features L1.2 low-power standby.
The Samsung OEM SSD PM9A1 is made entirely of semiconductor components and uses NAND flash memory, which has high reliability and advanced technology in a small form factor. Thanks to the support of the Peripheral Component Interconnect Express (PCIe) 4.0 interface standard, performance is much faster than that of SATA SSDs. A comparison of the speed makes it clear that the PM9A1 version is definitely ahead. In contrast to the 6,000 MB / s, the two previous models only offered 3,500 MB / s. This is no wonder. After all, both OEMs were equipped with PCIe 3.0 and not the latest PCIe 4.0 standard.
The Samsung PM9A1 is an M.2 SSD with PCIe 4.0 and practically the OEM counterpart to the 980 Pro.
TOSHIBA P300 Desktop PC 4TB, SATA 6Gb / s, form factor 3.5 ", speed 5400rpm, cache 128MB, power consumption 4.11W (operation), 2.32W (idle), volume 24dB (A) (operation), 22dB (A) (idle) Recording method Shingled Magnetic Recording (SMR), Drive Managed SMR sectors 4KB with emulation (512e).
As an HDD, the Toshiba P300 can of course not keep up with the performance of an SSD, but at least it costs only a fraction of correspondingly large SSDs such as the Samsung 960 Pro. In comparison with its HDD counterparts, the transfer rates of the P300 are still good. The hard drive achieved a read rate of 198 MB / s in the test. The same can be said about the writing speed of the P300. In the test, our test files are written to the large memory at a rate of 195 Mbyte / s - the access time is a good 6.88 milliseconds. At least among the 4TB models, we have measured the best results with the P300 so far.
With a great price-performance ratio, the Toshiba P300 with a capacity of four terabytes is aimed at PC users with large amounts of data and a tight budget. Despite the low price, the hard drive does well in the test and can convince with transfer rates of almost 200 MB per second.

Microsoft Windows 10 Professional 64Bit, pre-installed with all necessary device drivers. Switch on and get started!
The launch of Windows 10 and the associated developments are among the most important market launches in Microsoft's corporate history. Windows 10 not only brings a new version of the operating system onto the market, Windows 10 enables a new platform generation:
"We want to ensure that we offer developers the largest and most vibrant user base for their applications," said Satya Nadella in his opening keynote at BUILD 2015 in San Francisco. Windows 10 is now available in 190 countries and 111 languages.
The browser is really new in Windows 10: Edge replaces Internet Explorer. The new browser doesn't just have the cooler name. It is also much faster. In almost all browser benchmarks, Edge depends on IE 11 from Windows 8.1. It can almost double its pace in Mozilla's Kraken benchmark. It looks the same in Google's Octane 2.0 test. Its pace remains roughly the same in the Sunspider test and the Peacekeeper benchmark. Conclusion: When it comes to the browser speed, Windows 10 with Edge catches up a lot. In Kraken and Octane, Edge overtakes the competition, in the Sunspider he stays ahead. The old conditions are only preserved in the Peacekeeper test.
Microsoft already shortened the start times of Windows extremely with Windows 8. If the computer is switched off using "Shut down", it does not switch itself off, but only goes into hibernation - from which it can wake up more quickly. Even with a real Katlstart or restart, Windows 8.1 is slightly slower: However, over time, Windows remembers the files that it needs for the start: The start time is shortened with repeated starts. After ten starts, the two operating systems were almost on par with 20 seconds (Windows 10) and 22 seconds (Windows 8.1).
Windows is actually getting faster and faster the older it gets: For most components, manufacturers are releasing ever more up-to-date drivers that accelerate the hardware. Windows feels like it is getting slower and slower: This is mostly due to the fact that the autostart folder is filling up with more and more entries, more and more tools are running in the background and more and more programs that are no longer used are littering the memory. The performance tests show hardly any difference between Windows 8.1 and Windows 10. Sometimes one system is faster, sometimes the other. But all the results are so closely related - with less than three percent difference - that no difference is noticeable in practice. This also applies to tests such as Cinebench R15, which primarily check the processor performance. Even if we repeated the tests several times, nothing changed: When saving and buffering frequently used files, nothing seems to have changed between Windows 8.1 and 10. Conclusion: When it comes to hardware performance, Windows 10 is as fast as Windows 8.1 - or vice versa. So that Windows 10 stays fast, the same rules apply as always with Windows: Install the latest drivers and keep the system clean.
Windows 10 comes with the new Direct X12 3D interface. DX12 is designed to allow game programmers to use the capabilities of the GPU more efficiently. Computers with less powerful graphics cards can also benefit from this and display graphically complex games more smoothly. At the moment, the potential of DX12 can only be demonstrated using synthetic benchmarks such as the API overhead test. Conclusion: Windows 10 has the potential to accelerate games on weaker systems thanks to the DX12. But the concrete results will only show games that use DX12. The first should appear at the end of the year.
Windows 10 lays a good foundation: the hardware manufacturers have to use this to tease out a performance plus with improved drivers. Or in the case of Direct X12 game programmers who use the capabilities of the new interface in games.

Main issue is that the 120mm fan for the radiator doesn't go below 1000rpm (that's the lowest the Motherboard goes.)
That alone pumps so much air through that it creates quite some noise.
Wouldn't recommend it to anyone that expects a silent box. It just isn't that.
