CRUCIAL DIMM 16GB, DDR5-4800, CL40-39-39, type DDR5 DIMM 288-pin, on-die ECC, clock 4800MHz, modules 2x 8GB, 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
Negative characteristics of the Crucial Value DDR5 DIMMs:

This card is a safe bet, especially at lower resolutions up to WQHD, even if the lag to the GeForce RTX 3060 Ti is a bit more pronounced than expected. In some situations you will have to lift one or the other quality regulator in WQHD, but only if you need extremely high FPS numbers and the game does not support DLSS 2.0. It only gets a bit tighter in higher resolutions, but NVIDIA doesn't advertise the card for the high resolutions either.
DLSS in particular has never been as valuable for this combat dwarf as it is today, because if you focus more on performance and dampen the other settings a bit and do without the DXR effects completely, you can even use Ultra HD in the appropriate games swim with the river. Otherwise, DLSS also allows DXR in Full HD, which was probably the intention.
The GeForce RTX 3060 is an inexpensive 1440p gaming card and it fulfills this requirement with flying colors. Even current titles are displayed with sufficient FPS (of course, depending on the selected resolution). If you need 144 Hz in FullHD, you will also be happy with a GeForce RTX 3060 in most games.

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.
