An infinity mirror illuminated by RGB LEDs in the front, an RGB LED strip in the power supply tunnel and three 120mm RGB fans make the X-908 Infini2 a real eye-catcher. The front made of tempered glass and the side panel made of 4mm thick tempered glass give a generous insight into strong effects and colors, which can be managed by a switch on the front or via the 5V RGB header connection (addressable RGB LEDs).
The easy-to-reach control panel of the X-908 Infini2 is equipped with HD audio jacks, two USB 3.0 Type A and two further USB 3.0 Type C ports. Two separate switches offer the option of manual fan control in three stages (low, high or stop). The power and reset switches are slightly recessed and thus prevent accidental activation in the dark.
The infinity mirror is set in scene through the tempered glass of the front panel and offers insights into the depths of the optical illusion. Another highlight is the 4mm thick tempered glass side panel, which also highlights the built-in hardware. With the RGB-LED switch on the side, all pre-programmed effects and colors can be switched easily and conveniently. With the 3-pin RGB header connection for 5V RGB mainboard controls and matching mainboard software, all RGB LEDs can also be controlled individually (addressable RGB LEDs).
In the cover of the housing there is a large dust filter that protects the interior of the housing from dust. The dust filter is removed with two simple clicks and can thus be cleaned quickly and easily.
Three standard built-in 120mm RGB-LED fans not only skilfully stage the interior, they also ensure clean and cool air for the built-in components. The effects of the fans can be controlled via the built-in RGB-LED switch or via the 3-pin RGB header connection for 5V RGB mainboard controls, synchronized with the RGB LEDs in the front and above the power supply tunnel.
AMD Ryzen 9 5900X @ 4.80GHz, Socket AM4, code name Vermeer, TDP 105W, cores 12, threads 24, base clock 3.70GHz, turbo clock 4.80GHz, memory controller Dual Channel PC4-25600U (DDR4-3200), free multiplier yes, CPU- Functions VT-Vi, X86-64, AMD-V, AVX, AVX2, AES (2x FMA), NX-Bit, EVP, Architecture Zen 3, production 7nm (CPU, TSMC), 12nm (I / O, GlobalFoundries), L2 cache 6MB (12x 512kB), L3 cache 64MB (2x 32MB), chipset interface PCIe 4.0 x4, PCIe lanes 24x PCIe 4.0 (16 + 4 + 4), memory bandwidth 51.2GB / s.
19 percent more performance per cycle, an average of 26 percent more 3D performance and up to 24 percent more efficiency. AMD wants to make Intel look old. Thanks to the extensively improved Zen 3 architecture, multi and single threading performance should increase by 20 percent and more, while the core counts of 16, 12, 8 and 6 remain the same.
At a higher level, a CPU cluster (CCX) now consists of eight instead of four CPU cores. A single core can thus access a full 32 MByte level 3 cache in single-threading applications; In addition, the communication effort is reduced if an application uses more than four cores. 3D games also benefit from this.
On average, the performance per cycle (Instructions per Cycle, IPC) should increase by 19 percent - more than when switching from Zen + to Zen 2 (+ 15 percent). In games, AMD mentions an average increase of 26 percent. While Intel's Core-i-10000 processors were usually a bit faster than AMD's Ryzen 3000 in gaming, AMD wants to deliver the best player CPUs with the successors. Only in the rarest cases should the 12-core Ryzen 9 5900X deliver fewer frames per second than Intel's fastest gaming processor, the Core i9-10900K, such as Battlefield 5. In the esports games League of Legends (LoL) and Counter- Strike: Global Offensive (CSGO), which used to do particularly well to Intel, AMD wants to outpace the competition.

Quiet and powerful pump with 3-phase motor
Thermal Grizzly Hydronaut thermal compound
Pre-filled and completely maintenance-free
WingBoost 3 ARGB premium fan
Interchangeable logo plates
Safe mounting system
The diamond-cut copper base plate of the pump unit has large micro-channels to quickly and efficiently dissipate the processor's waste heat to the cooling circuit. 1200 rpm to 2550 rpm offer an extremely balanced range of performance to provide the necessary resources for your use in every situation. Decide for yourself whether you want maximum overclocking or subjectively silent silence in your silent project. An intelligent cooling circuit in the two-chamber design inside the pump housing also reduces the background noise of the pump unit and increases the cooling capacity and service life compared to conventional designs. The pump housing and pump cover are elaborately finished with piano lacquer after the injection molding process.
Gletscherwasser relies on a high-performance aluminum radiator. For even more security in your system, this radiator has a "leak-free" design. In the very unlikely event of a leak in the cooling system, the pressure in the cooling circuit is automatically regulated, which prevents possible coolant leakage. So your hardware is always SAFE.
With its excellent thermal conductivity, the Thermal Grizzly Hydronaut can also be used for overclocking. It was specially developed for use with large-area heat sinks, which are used, for example, in water cooling systems. Advantages: No hardening, silicone-free and not electrically conductive.
Wing Boost 3 ARGB
With 16.8 million colors, the Wing Boost 3 ARGB offers numerous options for uniquely staging the case. The addressable RGB LED lighting is integrated in the fan frame and casts a light glow on the impeller and shines stylishly to the outside.
Airflow optimized fan blades
With a new angle of attack for the fan blades, the rotor has been optimized for low speeds in order to achieve a significantly higher volume flow, total pressure and outlet speed at the same speed compared to other fans. Thanks to the Wing Boost 3 technology, air turbulence on the impeller is greatly reduced to ensure even quieter operation at full speed.
IC engine control
High-quality IC motor control minimizes electrical noise, especially in the low speed range, to a minimum.
Fluid Dynamic Bearing
By using the fluid dynamic bearing, we can realize low-vibration and whisper-quiet operation of the fan.
PWM speed control
The new Wing Boost 3 supports speed control using the PWM signal from the mainboard.
De vibration pads
Thanks to their excellent anti-vibration properties, the de-vibration pads reduce the often annoying noises that are transmitted to the housing by the vibrations of the fan to a minimum.
ASUS TUF Gaming X570-Plus [WI-FI], chipset AMD X570, RAM 4x DDR4 DIMM, dual PC4-35200U/DDR4-4400 (OC), max. 128GB (UDIMM), expansion slots 2x PCIe 4.0 x16 (1x x16, 1x x4), 2x PCIe 4.0 x1, 2x M.2/M-Key (PCIe 4.0 x4/SATA, 22110/2280/2260/2242), external connections 1x HDMI 1.4b (iGPU), 1x DisplayPort 1.2 (iGPU), 1x USB-C 3.1 (10Gb/s, X570), 2x USB-A 3.1 (10Gb/s, X570), 4x USB-A 3.0 (5Gb/ s), 1x Gb LAN (Realtek L8200A), 5x jack, 1x Toslink, 1x PS/2 combo Header lighting 2x 4-pin RGB (+12V/G/R/B, max. 3A), 1x 3-pin ARGB (+5V/DATA/GND, max. 3A, ASUS Gen2), audio 7.1 (Realtek ALC1200), DTS Custom Audio, Wireless Wi-Fi 5 (WLAN 802.11a/b/g/n/ac, 2x2, Intel 9260), Bluetooth 5.0, RAID level 0/1/10 (X570), Multi-GPU AMD 2-Way CrossFireX (x16/x4), RGB lighting, 1 zone (right accent), special features audio+solid capacitors, diagnostic LED (LED indicators), 1x M.2 passive cooler, onboard TPM 2.0 support (AMD fTPM).
ASUS has now renamed the formerly independent TUF series (The Ultimate Force) to "TUF Gaming" and has been the entry point into the ASUS gaming world ever since. The ASUS TUF Gaming X570-Plus (Wi-Fi) is characterized by the colors black, gray and a little yellow. The I/O panel and the PCH fan are encased in a plastic cover. Fortunately, a passive cooler is pre-installed for the lower M.2 connection.
With the X570-FCH, AMD is taking a big step forward compared to the X370 and X470-FCH, because the X570-FCH is the first chipset to establish the PCI Express 4.0 feature in the desktop segment. At the same time, the number of lanes increases from 8 to 16, of which 12 can be flexibly distributed by the mainboard manufacturer. The CPU and chipset are connected via a downlink and uplink with PCIe 4.0 x4 (Ryzen 3000).
The adjustable RGB lighting on the lower right side provides visual accents. With the TUF Gaming X570-Plus Gaming, manufacturer ASUS relies on high-quality materials and clean manufacturing. The engineers paid special attention to the capacitors, which had to go through a strict quality test. In general, the layout of the board is well thought out.
ASUS installs four DIMM sockets (dual channel) on the mainboard. With current 32 GB memory kits, you could create a more than sufficient memory expansion to 128 GB (max. 3,200 MHz, 4,400 MHZ in the OC). In order to be able to avoid the problem of possible overheating, the manufacturer installs two passive heat sinks (voltage converters) and an active chipset cooler (fan) at the factory. ASUS has given the board a digital power supply that can access 6+2 phases (6 phases for the CPU; 2 phases for the memory). With the new X570 boards, ASUS advertises the so-called SafeSlot, which the manufacturer describes as a particularly hard-wearing version of a PCIe slot with metal reinforcement. This should offer potential advantages when using heavy high-end graphics cards.
Positive characteristics of the ASUS TUF Gaming X570-Plus (Wi-Fi):
very good performance with a sufficient CPU power supply
Sufficient equipment, including eight SATA 6GBit/s interfaces and three USB 3.1 Gen2 sockets
good overall performance, good stability and good energy efficiency when idle
two M.2 M-Key interfaces (PCIe 4.0 x4)
WLAN-ac up to 1.73 GBit/s and Bluetooth 5.0 for the Wi-Fi version
Negative characteristics of the ASUS TUF Gaming X570-Plus (Wi-Fi):
ASUS TUF Gaming GeForce RTX 3080 V2, 10GB GDDR6X, connections 2x HDMI 2.1, 3x DisplayPort 1.4a, chip GA102-202-KD-A1 "Ampere", 68SM, 628mm², chip clock 1440MHz, boost: 1740MHz (OC mode), memory 10GB GDDR6X, 1188MHz, 19Gbps (19008MHz effective), 320bit, 760GB/s, Shader Units/TMUs/ROPs 8704/272/96, cooling 3x axial fan (95mm), special features real-time raytracing, raytracing cores (68), tensor cores (272), 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 (+30MHz), PCIe 4.0 x16 interface, computing power 30.29 TFLOPS (FP32), 473 GFLOPS (FP64), DirectX 12 Ultimate (12_2), OpenGL 4.6, OpenCL 3.0, Vulkan 1.2, Shader Model 6.6.
A good custom design is characterized by the fact that it already works optimally from the factory. Fan speeds, power limit, offset to the clock rates - all of this has to be explored and harmonized with each other. Asus has undoubtedly succeeded with the TUF Gaming OC.
The buyer of such a card has the choice between two default settings via the performance and quiet mode, each of which works very well. In Quiet Mode, the card is clocked 15 to 30 MHz lower, but this is hardly noticeable in the benchmarks, which is why we have not carried out separate tests. The software can also be used to choose between a Silent, Gaming and OC mode, but actually it is sufficient to leave this at the default values and then find the desired setting via the BIOS switch.
In Quiet Mode, the ASUS TUF Gaming GeForce RTX 3080 OC is only slightly louder than the MSI GeForce RTX 3080 Gaming X Trio 10G, which was the quietest model in our test so far. The temperatures always range between 60 and 70 °C - no matter which preset is selected. The GPU Boost 5.0 of the Ampere generation also has certain temperature dependencies, but it doesn't make a big difference in the temperature window of the air cooling. Anything below 70 °C is considered positive. Of course, the lower the temperature at the end, the better. But you should also keep an eye on the volume. The ASUS model is already very well positioned here.
The voltage measurement points on the back of the PCB are a nice gimmick, but certainly don't matter to 99.9% of users. As far as the lighting is concerned, ASUS is holding back a bit, but here too personal taste decides how much RGB lighting there should be or not.

Unique product ID with changeable side stickers for DIY enthusiasts and gamers.
The electrical performance of the Hydro G 850W PSU was very good. The unit exhibited tight voltage regulation, high efficiency (80 Plus Gold) and good AC ripple and noise suppression. The cooling fan is very quiet and the power supply operates in silent fan-less mode at low power levels. The Hydro G Series also features fully modular, flat ribbon-style cables. Our only minor complaint was the lack of a second ATX/EPS 4+4 pin cable/connector, which is pretty standard at this power level.

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.
