The 120 mm ARGB Umbra Void PWM fan installed on the rear provides additional lighting. A total of up to ten fans can be installed to create a real light show. The dual-chamber design separates the stylish front view from the rear. There is plenty of space behind for unsightly cables and drives. So the Kolink Unity X can easily be transformed into the ultimate showcase case.
Spacious and chic
The Kolink Unity X is the must-have case for those who want to design their own impressive enthusiast PC. With its expansive midi tower format and well thought-out structure, the Kolink Unity X offers plenty of space for powerful hardware and sophisticated cooling options, such as a graphics card that can be up to 400 mm long and can also be mounted vertically. The bracket specially developed for this purpose leaves enough space between the GPU and the tempered glass side panel to guarantee optimal airflow.
There are plenty of options for sophisticated water cooling, but if you want a more straightforward setup, you can install a CPU cooler with a height of up to 165 mm. In the interior there is space for motherboards in ATX, Micro-ATX or Mini-ITX form factor. Two 3.5-inch and two 2.5-inch data carriers can be accommodated in the adjoining chamber. The I / O panel also offers excellent connectivity with two USB 3.0 ports, one USB 2.0 port and a headphone and microphone port.
Ten times more cooling options
The Kolink Unity Code X with its expansive interior has plenty of space for air and water cooling options. It is the first housing from Kolink in which three 360 mm radiators can be accommodated at the same time - ideal for water cooling enthusiasts who want to create their own custom loop including a pump and reservoir combination.
The X in the name already suggests: The housing can accommodate up to ten 120 mm fans, which ensure excellent airflow and cooling performance. Fans can be mounted on the side, on top and on the floor. On the back there is another slot for a 120 fan, which is occupied by the pre-installed first-class PWM fan. Overall, they ensure even ventilation throughout the chassis - and impressive lighting when fans with RGB lighting are used. Finally, dust filters on the lid and bottom ensure a dust-free interior.
INTEL Core i7-11700, clock frequency @ 4.9 GHz Socket 1200, code name Rocket Lake-S, cores 8 threads 16, base clock 2.50GHz turbo clock 4.90GHz, SMT yes (Intel Hyper-Threading), memory controller Dual Channel PC4-25600U (DDR4 -3200), CPU functions DL Boost, Turbo Boost Max 3.0 (4.90GHz), Turbo Boost 2.0 (4.80GHz), vPro, Hyper-Threading, VT-x, VT-d, VT-x EPT, Intel 64, SSE4 .1, SSE4.2, AVX, AVX2, AVX-512, Idle States, EIST, Thermal Monitoring, IPT, SIPP, GNA 2.0, AES-NI, Secure Key, OS Guard, TXT, XD Bit, Boot Guard, Cypress architecture Cove, L2 cache 4MB (8x 512kB), L3 cache 16MB, chipset interface DMI 3.0, 8GT / s (PCIe 3.0 x8), PCIe lanes 20x PCIe 4.0, memory max.128GB, memory bandwidth 50GB / s.
The Core i7-11700 offers eight physical cores and can process up to 16 threads simultaneously thanks to SMT (Hyper-Threading) support. The base clock is 2.5 GHz, the highest turbo clock frequency in single-threading load increases to 4.9 GHz. As a new highlight, the Core i7-11700 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.
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 are 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.
SILENTIUMPC Spartan 4 Max Evo ARGB. SilentiumPC offers the Spartan 4 CPU cooler in four versions. RGB lighting is also reserved for certain versions. The Spartan 4 MAX is not only a bit bigger, but above all, it is more powerful. In addition, the number of heat pipes increases. In addition, the lamellar body and thus the height of the radiator grow to a still low 143 millimeters. At the same time, the fan is being replaced by a 120 mm version that can be operated between 250 and 1,500 rpm. This enables a TDP of 150 watts to be cooled.
Spartan 4 Max Evo ARGB is offered with an illuminated ARGB fan, in which each individual LED can be controlled separately. Not only the fan blades but also the fan frame are illuminated. The speed range remains the same compared to the non-illuminated fans of the standard models. The lighting can be controlled via a suitable mainboard or a suitable controller. If both are missing, an auto-LED function can at least start the rainbow effect.

What is the fundamental difference between the Z590 chipset and the Z490: the major changes include native USB 3.2 Gen2x2 support (20 GBit / s) on up to three Type-C interfaces, and Wi-Fi 6E support and the DMI (Direct Media Interface) drilled to PCIe 3.0 x8 as a connection between CPU (Northbridge) and chipset (Southbridge). With the new Rocket Lake S processors, the Z590 chipset now also allows a more flexible PCIe lane division. 1x16 or 2x8 or 1x8 and 2x4 became 1x16 + 1x4 or 2x8 + 1x4 or even 1x 8 and 3x4. The Z490 chipset offers a maximum of six USB 3.2 Gen2 ports. With the Z590-PCH, Intel has now increased this limit to ten interfaces.
On the MSI Z590-A PRO WIFI, the manufacturer has taken into account a passive cooler for the M.2 slot via the processor. Since a PCIe 4.0 x4 SSD can also be used in combination with the eleventh core generation (Rocket Lake-S), this definitely makes sense for thermal reasons.
But MSI has now also fundamentally changed the look. White vertical and horizontal stripes were attached to the black PCB, which bring a breath of fresh air, but are still a matter of taste. The same look can also be found on the VRM cooler, next to the new MSI logo. As usual, up to 128 GB of RAM can be stowed in the four DDR4 UDIMM memory banks. In connection with two single-rank modules, MSI specifies an effective memory clock rate of 5,333 MHz. It should be up to 4,700 MHz with two dual-rank DIMMs. A fully connected PCIe x16 slot goes to work itself via the LGA1200 CPU. The PCIe 4.0 standard can only be used if a Rocket Lake S CPU is installed in the socket and the top M.2 interface with a maximum of PCIe 4.0 x4 can also be used.

Nvidia has gone even further: with 12.0 GB of VRAM, it should eliminate the supposed weakness of the RTX 3080, which is equipped with "only" 10.0 GB, and at the same time tie in with the performance of the RTX 3090.
The performance rating shows that the RTX 3080 Ti is on average ten percent faster under 4K resolution than the Geforce RTX 3080. However, the latter is already overclocked at the factory, which is why the distance between the RTX 3080 Ti and the Founders Edition of the RTX 3080 is slightly larger should fail. Conversely, some custom models of the RTX 3080 Ti will be correspondingly faster than the Founders Edition.
As expected, the lead shrinks to five percent under WQHD resolution, compared to the AMD Radeon RX 6800 XT it is still seven percent.
The Nvidia Geforce RTX 3080 Ti is aimed at enthusiasts for whom the RTX 3090's 24.0 GB video memory is too much. The RTX 3080 Ti is something for you under the following conditions:
You want maximum performance in general, but you don't need 24.0 GB of video memory.
You prefer to play in 4K or want to achieve three-digit FPS values in WQHD.
You want maximum ray tracing performance.
With the Geforce RTX 3080 Ti, Nvidia brings the actual player flagship from the RTX 3000 series. Where the RTX 3090 is simply oversized, the RTX 3080 Ti offers just the right amount of video memory, coupled with plenty of computing power.
If you are looking for the highest possible performance for gaming in 4K resolution as well as for ray tracing, you will find it here. Alongside the RTX 3090, the RTX 3080 Ti is currently the most powerful 4K 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.
