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.
INTEL Core i9-10900F, clock frequency @ 5.20 GHz, socket 1200 (LGA), code name Comet Lake-S, TDP 65W, cores 10, threads 20, base clock 2.80GHz, turbo clock 5.20GHz, memory controller dual channel PC4-23466U (DDR4-2933 ), CPU features Optane Memory Support, Thermal Velocity Boost (5.20GHz), Turbo Boost Max 3.0 (5.10GHz), Turbo Boost 2.0, vPro, SMT (Hyper-Threading), VT-x, VT-d, VT-x EPT, Intel 64, SSE4.1, SSE4.2, AVX, AVX2, Idle States, EIST, Thermal Monitoring, IPT, SIPP, AES-NI, Secure Key, SGX, OS Guard, TXT, XD Bit, Boot Guard, architecture Comet Lake, L2 cache 2.5MB (10x 256kB), L3 cache 20MB, chipset interface DMI 3.0, 8GT / s (PCIe 3.0 x4), PCIe-Lanes 16x (PCIe 3.0), memory max. 128GB, memory bandwidth 45.8GB / s.
In the 10th generation, Intel only uses the new LGA1200 socket, which is only physically compatible with the Intel socket 1151, but can deliver the increased power consumption of the top models from the i9 and i7 series. Intel continues to rely on 14-nanometer manufacturing. The cache responsible for lower latencies and thus better performance is up to 20 megabytes in total. DDR4 RAM is supported up to a clock speed of 2,933 MHz. For i5 and below, the maximum RAM clock is specified at 2,666 MHz. Consistently (except for the F variants) Intel's UHD Graphics 630 is used as the GPU.
The Z490 from the new chipset series 400 comes with 40 PCI lanes and is ready for WLAN 6 and 2.5 gigabit LAN. There is also support for Thunderbolt 3 and Intel's Optane technology. However, PCI Express 3.0 is the maximum.
The boost functions (from i3) hold up to three levels. We explain it using the flagship Intel Core i9-10900K. It clocks at 3.7 GHz in basic mode. With Intel Turbo Boost 2.0, the base clock can clock up a single one of the 10 cores up to 5.1 GHz. Turbo Boost Max 3.0 (from i7) adds another 100 MHz for one core (5.2 GHz). With Intel's new "Thermal Velocity Boost" technology (from i9, except T-model), the CPU can hold a maximum of 5.3 GHz per core or 4.9 GHz for all cores. For a short time and with increased power consumption.

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.
MSI Z590 Pro WIFI, form factor ATX, socket Intel 1200, chipset Intel Z590, CPU compatibility Core i-11000, RAM 4x DDR4 DIMM, dual PC4-42666U / DDR4-5333 (OC), max.128GB (UDIMM), expansion slots 1x PCIe 4.0 x16 (CPU), 1x PCIe 3.0 x16, 2x PCIe 3.0 x1, 1x M.2 / M-Key (PCIe 4.0 x4, 22110/2280/2260/2242, CPU), 2x M.2 / M-Key (PCIe 3.0 x4 / SATA, 2280/2260/2242,), 1x M.2 / E-Key (PCIe / Intel CNVi, 2230, occupied by WiFi + BT module), External connections 1x HDMI 2.0b (iGPU), 1x DisplayPort 1.4 (iGPU), 1x USB-C 3.2 (20Gb / s, 1x USB-A 3.1 (10Gb / s), 2x USB-A 3.0 (5Gb / s ), 4x USB-A 2.0 (480Mb / s), 1x 2.5GBase-T (Intel I225-V), 6x jack, 1x PS / 2 combo, internal connections 1x USB-C 3.1 Key-A header (10Gb / S), 2x USB 3.0 header (5Gb / s, 4x USB 3.0), 2x USB 2.0 header (480Mb / s, 4x USB 2.0, Z590 via hub GL850G), 6x SATA 6Gb / s, 1x serial, 1x TPM -Header, 1x Thunderbolt header 13-pin, 1x chassis intrusion header, 1x MSI tuning controller header 5-pin, header lighting 1x 4-pin RGB (+ 12V / G / R / B, max. 3A), 2x 3-Pin ARGB (+ 5V / DATA / GND, max. 3A) buttons / switches USB BIOS Flashback (external), Audio 7.1 (Realtek ALC897), Wireless Wi-Fi 6E (WLAN 802.11a / b / g / n / ac / ax, 2x2, Intel AX210), Bluetooth 5.2, RAID level 0/1/5/10 (Z590), multi-GPU AMD 2-Way-CrossFireX ( x16 / x4), power connections 1x 24-pin ATX, 1x 8-pin EPS12V, 1x 4-pin ATX12V, 1x 6-pin PCIe special features audio + solid capacitors, diagnostic LED (LED indicators), 1x M.2 passive cooling.
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.

MSI's exclusive Dragon Center software enables MSI products to be monitored, optimized and adjusted in real time.
The more pixels, the greater the data load, the better the Geforce RTX 3090 positions itself. Although the graphics card does not manage to turn every unplayable scenario into a liquid feast, the differences compared to an overclocked Geforce RTX 2080 Ti are more than clear - and we're talking about the fastest graphics card that was available between early 2019 and mid-2020. In the end, one thing is clear: No matter what task you entrust the RTX 3090 with, it can do it. Lack of memory is absolutely not an issue in games, ever. At best, we managed to address 21 of the 24 GiByte, but in the deep red Fps slide show area.
If you are seriously toying with a Geforce RTX 3090, you should therefore also think about a new monitor. Whether native Ultra HD or 5K using DSR on a WQHD screen: New games benefit greatly from finer scanning and thus shine in the best possible splendor. But that's not all, the additional pixels help the GA102 to utilize its numerous FP32 arithmetic units. After the recent measurements, we are finally convinced that Ampere graphics cards will age excellently, as they can cope with future workloads (including refined denoising) better than previous GPU architectures. The relative weakness at low resolutions then becomes a strength. The Geforce RTX 3090 is therefore a bright future, while the RTX 3080 will have problems sooner or later. Your computing power is sufficient for extreme cases, but the storage capacity is a stumbling block.
FTX-1200-1 Forza 1200W ATX 2.4, fan 120mm, volume 19-22dB (A), cable management fully modular, connections 1x 20/24 pin, 2x 4/8 pin ATX12V, 8x 6/8 pin PCIe , 12x SATA, 4x IDE, 1x floppy, average efficiency 92%, certificates 80 PLUS Platinum, manufacturer's guarantee ten years, number of 12V rails 1, + 3.3V, 20A + 5V, 20A + 12V 98A-12V 0.3A + 5Vsb 3A PFC active form factor ATX PS / 2 special features ErP Lot 6.
The power supply has the 80Plus Platinum certification and must therefore have an efficiency of at least 90, 94 and 91 percent at 20, 50 and 100 percent load. The housing structure differs somewhat from the usual design. The top cover, under which the fan is located, consists of a U-shape that has been perforated at the top and at one end. This "U" is not simply bent by 90 degrees on the front sides, but finely rounded without any edges. The cutouts with the connections are located on the opposite end. On the underside is the base plate on which the power supply is attached. The two sides are made of aluminum sheets, the edges of which have been completely beveled and polished. This means that there is not a single 90-degree edge on this power donor, only fine curves.
In summary, a visually elegant and high-quality design. In addition, there is a full cable management and a single powerful 12 volt rail that can be loaded up to a maximum of 98 amps.
The power supply is cooled by a 120mm fan via a temperature control. The built-in fan was barely noticeable during our test run. Regarding the fan volume, it should be noted that, as with all fans with temperature control, it is difficult to quantify the effective volume in "normal operation", at least without complex measuring methods in air-conditioned and anechoic rooms. The fan was barely audible even under full load and overload.
SAMSUNG SSD PM9A1 256GB, M.2, design Solid State Module (SSM), form factor M.2 2280, interface M.2 / M-Key (PCIe 4.0 x4), read 6400MB / s, write 2700MB / s SLC-Cached, IOPS 4K read / write 500k / 600k, 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.

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.
