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.

The purchase argument for the fastest gaming CPU was previously reserved for Intel processors. But with the new Ryzen processors of the 5000 series, this changes. The single-core performance could be increased drastically and the Intel Core i9-10900K remains around 20 percent behind the AMD Ryzen 9 5900X.
The somewhat slower Ryzen 7 5800X also has an easy time with the 10 core. Even the multi-core performance is much better with the 8-core. The success story of AMD continues with the new models of the Ryzen 5000 family and for the first time the current Ryzen CPUs are faster than Intel's Core i9-10900K when gaming. AMD does not pack even more CPU cores under the heatspreader, but fundamentally changes the structure of the CCX in order to increase the IPC. This is exactly where the new Ryzen 5000 can convince and outclass the old top dog in many single CPU benchmarks. Last but not least, the higher single-thread performance also has a significant impact on the multi-core performance.

The LIQMAX III RGB all-in-one CPU water cooler with RGB lighting.
The water block in acrylic optics is equipped in the Aurabelt design, which provides brilliant light effects. LIQMAX III RGB supports RGB synchronization with motherboards that have 4-pin RGB connectors (+ 12V / G / R / B). Thanks to the dual chamber design patented by ENERMAX, the Central Coolant Inlet (CCI) and the Shunt Channel Technology (SCT), the cooler achieves faster heat transfer and a longer service life. The RGB fans with dual-convex fan blades are optimized for radiators and generate high static pressure to force the heat out of the cooling fins. The LIQMAX III RGB is an excellent cooler for housings that do not want to do without RGB lighting.
The cooler is very well made and, for fans of light games, has smartly illuminated fans and a discreetly illuminated pump unit. In addition, the lighting is compatible with all common mainboards with a corresponding mainboard header.

As we get requests concerning the proper sizes of power supplies very often, we want to give you some information here, so that you can get an idea of this topic:
SAMSUNG SSD PM9A1 512GB, M.2, design Solid State Module (SSM), form factor M.2 2280, interface M.2 / M-Key (PCIe 4.0 x4), read 6900MB / s
Write 5000MB / s SLC-Cached, IOPS 4K read / write 800k / 800k, memory modules 3D-NAND TLC, Samsung, 136 layers (V-NAND v6), reliability prognosis 1.5 million hours (MTBF), controller Samsung Elpis (S4LV003) , 8 channels, cache 512MB (LPDDR4), SLC cache, protocol NVMe 1.3c, 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 Harddisk 3TB, SATA 6Gb/s, Form factor: 3.5" • Speed: 7200rpm • Cache: 64MB • Power consumption: 6.4W (operation), 5.2W (idle) • Volume: 28dB(A) (operation), 27dB(A) (idle) • Recording process: Conventional magnetic Recording (CMR) • sectors: 4KB with emulation (512e) • Encryption: not available • Special features: not available • Warranty: two years
It was not too many years ago that the idea of a 1TB drive was almost mind-boggling. However, with the continued explosion of digital data, including large-file-size games that support hi-resolution and/or 3D graphics, HD movies, HD music (and more), the need to store that data now makes a 1TB HDD not seem all that large. Also, enterprise storage systems are experiencing similar (if not even greater) growth, so more storage capacity with fewer drives is always going to be an attractive option. Hence, the market is definitely there for ever-larger capacity HDDs.
Toshiba’s DT01ACA300 HDD is a consistent performer. In our testing, it attained over 190MB/s sequential reads and writes for all transfer sizes of 16KB and larger, being under 190MB/s for only the smallest 1/3 of the transfer sizes. This demonstrates a high level of consistent performance. Our testing gave us a total score that was 20% higher than other similar drives. Our PCMark Vantage HDD suite testing gave us a total score that was 10% higher than other similar drives. In our HD Tune Pro testing, we even saw burst speeds of nearly 418MB/s, this is flash storage territory.
Toshiba’ DT01ACA300 HDD is a top-performing mechanical drive. We saw a number of benchmark results that best any of the 3TB mechanical HDDs that we have previously tested. Note that in the PCMark Vantage testing, this HDD excelled with both Windows Media Center and Windows Photo Gallery – in other words, content creation. Although this drive is marketed as a client HDD, we are seeing performance that should also appeal to media professionals and other content creators, and 3TB of capacity in a single drive to boot.

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.
