Side panel made of tempered glass & two pre-installed fans
The solid chassis consists of one millimeter thick SECC steel and is covered with a four millimeter thick tempered glass side panel and a plastic front with a stylish brushed aluminum look. The entire interior is coated black and fitted with a power supply cover to achieve a particularly clean look. This accommodates a permanently installed hard drive cage with brackets for two 3.5 or 2.5 inch drives and the power supply unit.
In order to ensure ventilation of the hardware installed in the housing, two of six possible 120 mm fans with Molex connectors are already included and installed in the housing. One is placed in the lowest of three possible places behind the front, the second in the only place at the back. Two more 120 mm fans can be installed under the cover.
Dust filters keep the Kolink Stronghold clean
The mainboard tray and the power supply cover offer numerous openings for sophisticated cable management. A 240mm radiator can be accommodated in the front and top of the Observatory housing. Ventilation openings with fine dust filters are located in the cover and on the underside of the housing. They can be removed without tools and are reinforced with a filigree honeycomb pattern.
Graphics cards can be up to 38 centimeters long and CPU coolers up to 16 centimeters high. In addition, the I/O panel on the front has two USB 2.0 ports and a USB 3.0 Type A port.

The Core i7-11700K offers eight physical cores and can process up to 16 threads simultaneously thanks to SMT (Hyper-Threading) support. The base clock is 3.6 GHz, the highest turbo clock frequency in single-threading load increases to 5 GHz. As a new highlight, the Core i7-11700K also has 20 PCIe 4.0 lanes, 16 of which are primarily intended for the graphics card and the remaining four lanes for a PCIe 4.0 x4 SSD.
With eight cores, but without velocity and adaptive boost, the Octacore still clocks with 4.6 GHz all-core and 5.0 GHz single-core. This is 100 MHz lower than the previous Core i7-10700K. Compared to the i9-11900K, there are not only cuts in the clock frequency, according to the Intel specification in Gear 1 mode, the memory controller can only clock with a maximum of DDR4-2933 MHz, with Gear 2 up to DDR4-3200 is possible. In terms of single-threaded and IPC performance, the Cypress Cove architecture is a significant step forward - especially compared to what we have seen over and over again in recent years with the numerous Skylake reissues. We're actually talking about + 20% IPC performance, which Intel brings back to the level of AMD's Zen 3 architecture in this regard. Intel can exploit this primarily in applications in which only a few cores are used. Above all, however, Intel is clearly targeting gamers as buyers of its new processors. If we look at the corresponding benchmarks, we can actually say that Intel has once again put the player's crown on the table. But the truth is also that you don't clearly beat AMD with the Ryzen 5000 processors, but the gaps here are so small that you can speak of a tie. Gamers who choose an output resolution of 1080p and higher and a corresponding level of detail are limited by the GPU performance of both AMD and Intel.

ASUS TUF Gaming GeForce RTX 3070 Ti OC V2, 8GB GDDR6X, connections 2x HDMI 2.1, 3x DisplayPort 1.4a, chip GA102-150-A1 "Ampere", 48SM, 628mm² Chip clock 1575MHz, boost: 1815MHz (OC mode), memory 8GB GDDR6X, 1188MHz, 19Gbps (19008MHz effective), 256bit, 608GB/s, shader units/TMUs/ROPs 6144/192/96, cooling 3x axial fan (95mm), special features real-time raytracing (48 cores), tensor cores (192), NVIDIA G-Sync, NVIDIA VR-Ready, AV1 Decode, HDCP 2.3, 0dB- Zero fan mode (up to 55°C), backplate, LED lighting (RGB), boost clock overclocked (+45MHz), PCIe 4.0 x16 interface, computing power 22.3 TFLOPS (FP32), 348 GFLOPS (FP64), DirectX 12 Ultimate (12_2), OpenGL 4.6, OpenCL 3.0, Vulkan 1.3, Shader Model 6.6.
The TUF GAMING GeForce RTX 3070 Ti has been redesigned from the ground up to deliver more robust performance and more reliable cooling. A new all-metal case houses three powerful Axial-Tech fans, which are equipped with durable double ball bearings. The direction of rotation of the fans has been optimized to reduce turbulence and a stop mode brings all three fans to a standstill at low temperatures. Beneath the chassis, independent heatsinks for the GPU and memory keep temperatures under control at all times. Additional features such as TUF components, Auto-Extreme technology, a new GPU mount and a backplate vent make the TUF a real powerhouse.
Components for TUF Gaming graphics cards are selected based on their durability and performance. In addition to high-quality coils and MOSFETs, it is primarily the military-standard certified capacitors that set the TUF apart from the competition. The components are automatically soldered to the circuit board using our state-of-the-art Auto-Extreme manufacturing process. Smooth soldering on the back of the board and the absence of human error ensure each graphics card meets our stringent quality requirements. Finally, the cards undergo a rigorous 144-hour validation process to ensure flawless performance when it matters most.
The underside of the map reveals a variety of improvements. Most of the rear is covered by a protective metal backplate that features a prominent, large vent. The vent allows warm air to flow toward the case fans instead of being recirculated back into the cooler. Below the GPU, a bracket ensures even contact pressure between the chip and the heat spreader. The connector panel uses stainless steel to protect the connectors and ensure a more secure attachment. With a user-friendly dual bios switch, the standard performance profile of the card can be adjusted without software.
The RGB element on the top can be customized to display a range of purely visual and functional effects. In addition, it can be synchronized with other ASUS components for uniform lighting. To meet the performance requirements of the GeForce RTX 3070 Ti, two 8-pin connectors are provided. If the PCIe power cables of the power supply are not properly plugged in, this is signaled by integrated LEDs.
ASUS GPU Tweak II Utility takes graphics card tuning to a new level. The software gives you the ability to tweak key parameters like GPU core clock, memory frequency, voltage settings, and more, and monitor everything in real-time through a customizable on-screen display. Advanced fan control is also integrated, as are many other features that help you get the most out of your graphics card.

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.
