- Graphic Card(s)
After uniformly designed and therefore mostly closed fronts were popular in recent years, there has been a growing number of enclosures that use more open designs and thus promise a stronger airflow. These models also include the new Citadel Mesh RGB, which Kolink has placed as an attractive Micro-ATX case. A total of three 120 mm A-RGB fans shine through the front or through the glass side panel. The lighting is controlled either via a 5 V A RGB connection on the mainboard or conveniently via the remote control supplied.
The interior of the Citadel Mesh RGB not only promises enough space for a micro ATX mainboard and an ATX power supply, but also for tall tower coolers and long graphics cards. If necessary, water cooling with a 240mm radiator can also be used.
The cooling performance is accordingly significantly better than in comparable, closed housings. It is particularly positive that the A-RGB fans have PWM connections and can be easily controlled via a single PWM connection using the integrated PWM distributor. This is an exception in this price range. The fans are not whisper-quiet, but if you turn them down, the noise level will be completely unproblematic for most users.
Compared to a typical ATX case, Kolink's micro-ATX case saves a lot of space, but is still generous with a view of high tower coolers and long graphics cards. The three pre-assembled A-RGB fans shape the appearance of the housing - and the Citadel Mesh RGB is particularly user-friendly when it comes to lighting control. In addition to the LED button and control via a suitable mainboard, the supplied remote control can also be used. The glass side panel also provides convenience because it can be easily opened as a door.

CRUCIAL DIMM 32GB, DDR5-4800, CL40-39-39, type DDR5 DIMM 288-pin, on-die ECC, clock 4800MHz, modules 2x 16GB, JEDEC PC5-38400U, ranks/banks single rank, x16, CAS Latency CL 40 (corresponds to ~16.67ns), Row-to-Column Delay tRCD 39 (corresponds to ~16.25ns), Row Precharge Time tRP 39 (corresponds to ~16.25ns), voltage 1.1V, special features standard SPD.
Crucial deliberately does without a heat spreader in the value memory bars. The PCBs appear in chic black. The big advantage of the non-existing heat spreader is of course the fact that the modules are not in the way even with expansive CPU air coolers. The memory chips are of course from Micron and could be overclocked by 800 MHz in our short test, so that the effective clock frequency has increased to 5,600 MHz.
With just 4,800 MHz on the effective side, Crucial's value modules present themselves with exactly the native DDR5 maximum clock that Intel has specified for the 12th core generation (Alder Lake-S). An XMP in version 3.0 was programmed by Crucial to communicate the parameters specified by the manufacturer to the BIOS/UEFI in a simple manner.
The built-in Micron memory chips allow overclocking of a decent 800 MHz, i.e. up to DDR5-5600.
Positive properties of the Crucial Value DDR5 DIMMs:
good SPD programming including XMP 3.0
low module height for high cooler compatibility

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.
SEAGATE BarraCuda Compute 4TB, 3.5", 256MB, SATA 6Gb/s, form factor 3.5", 20mm, cache 256MB, power consumption 3.7W (operation), 2.5W (idle), noise level 24dB(A) (operation), 22dB(A) (idle), recording method Shingled Magnetic Recording (SMR), Drive Managed SMR, sectors 4KB with emulation (512e).
After Hitachi and Western Digital, Seagate is now also offering a 4 terabyte model for desktop PCs. On the other hand, the manufacturer has the edge in terms of data density with 1000 GB per magnetic disk.
The rotational speed of the is only 5400 instead of 7200 revolutions per minute, as was previously the case with the Barracudas. This ensures lower power consumption, but at the expense of the transfer rates. However, Seagate compensates for this slowdown with the high data density and packs a whole terabyte onto a magnetic disk. According to the manufacturer, this corresponds to up to 340,000 data tracks on a width of around 25 millimeters. Converted, the track width is only 75 nanometers.
This requires extremely precise control of the read/write heads. To do this, Seagate uses AcuTrac technology, which constantly determines the flying height of the heads via two sensors and compensates for it with the finest temperature changes in the carrier material. In addition, Seagate uses Advanced Format technology to increase the sector size from 512 bytes to 4 kilobytes - this reduces the additional memory requirements for address and check bits, which are then available for user data.
The sequential transfer performance of the 4 TB drive from Seagate is impressive: the 3.5-inch hard drive achieves a maximum of almost 175 MB/s. In the particularly fast burst mode, in which the hard disk transfers data directly via the 64 MB buffer memory, the transfer rate even climbed to almost 250 MB/s.

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.
