Intel itself speaks of the fastest desktop processor in the world with the new top model, the Core i9-13900KS. To achieve this goal, Intel has increased clock rates up to 6.0 GHz, doubled the number of E-Cores and revised the cache system.
With the Raptor Lake processors and in particular the Core i9-13900K, Intel currently has processors on offer that have a comfortable advantage over the competition, at least in single-core applications such as games. Apparently, that doesn't stop Intel from working on an even faster model: Intel Core i9-13900KS.
With the Core i9-12900KS, Intel wanted to counter the Ryzen 7 5800X3D as the first processor with 3D V-Cache. The same task could now be given to the Core i9-13900KS in the current generation, as soon as AMD launches the Ryzen 7000 processors with the enlarged cache as well.
The Raptor Lake processors are fully compatible with all socket 1700 motherboards with a 600 chipset. Compared to its predecessor, the new Z790 socket offers eight additional PCIe Gen4 lanes, with the chipset itself now being connected to the CPU with DMI Gen 4.0. In addition, the chipset can provide more USB 3.2 ports with fast 20 Gbps.
With the Gletscherwasser, Alpenföhn, in cooperation with overclocking legend Roman "der8auer" Hartung, presents a premium complete water cooling system with digitally addressable RGB lighting. The included Wing Boost 3 ARGB fans and the Thermal Grizzly Hydronaut thermal paste complete the package and offer uncompromising performance with quiet operation at the same time.

Complete water cooling system in cooperation with overclocking legend Roman "der8auer" Hartung
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.

CRUCIAL DIMM 32GB, DDR5-4800, CL40-39-39, type DDR5 DIMM 288-pin, on-die ECC, clock 4800MHz, modules 2x 16GB, 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

SATA 3.3 Power Disable Feature Adapter.
PREMIUM HYBRID FAN CONTROL
Seasonic's extensive experience in designing the quietest and most efficient power supplies on the market has been translated into the development of hybrid mode; a state-of-the-art fan controller that allows users to keep the overall fan noise at the lowest possible level.
LIQUID DYNAMIC FAN BEARING
High performance Fluid Dynamic Bearing (FDB) fans are designed to utilize the shock absorbing effect of oil. They are extremely reliable and produce significantly less operating noise and heat than ball-bearing fans. Lubricating the bearing surface reduces friction and vibration, thereby lowering overall power consumption. Due to the effortless, quieter rotations and its robust construction, this reliable fan technology also significantly increases the lifespan of the fan. As the fan shaft rotates, high-pressure oil flows along the grooves of the bearing sleeve to create a thin layer of lubrication between the bearing surfaces. As the RPM increases, so does the dynamic oil pressure, lifting the shaft out of the bearing to produce smooth, effortless rotations. The herringbone shape of the grooves helps guide the lubricant efficiently and prevent leakage.
WIRELESS CONNECTION VERSION
Seasonic engineers have implemented a new design feature where instead of cables, the backplane and the PCB (Printed Circuit Board) are connected by a copper plate. This breakthrough solution not only reduces the likelihood of manual loading production errors, but also improves output power quality.
SAMSUNG SSD PM9A1 1TB, M.2, design Solid State Module (SSM), form factor M.2 2280, interface M.2 / M-Key (PCIe 4.0 x4), read 7000MB / s, write 5100MB / s SLC-Cached IOPS 4K read / write 1000k / 850k, memory modules 3D-NAND TLC, Samsung, 136 layers (V-NAND v6), reliability prognosis 1.5 million hours (MTBF), Samsung Elpis (S4LV003) controller, 8 channels, 1GB cache (LPDDR4), SLC cache, NVMe 1.3c protocol, 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.
SEAGATE BarraCuda Compute 4TB, 3.5", 256MB, SATA 6Gb/s, form factor 3.5", 20mm, cache 256MB, power consumption 3.7W (operation), 2.5W (idle), noise level 24dB(A) (operation), 22dB(A) (idle), recording method Shingled Magnetic Recording (SMR), Drive Managed SMR, sectors 4KB with emulation (512e).
After Hitachi and Western Digital, Seagate is now also offering a 4 terabyte model for desktop PCs. On the other hand, the manufacturer has the edge in terms of data density with 1000 GB per magnetic disk.
The rotational speed of the is only 5400 instead of 7200 revolutions per minute, as was previously the case with the Barracudas. This ensures lower power consumption, but at the expense of the transfer rates. However, Seagate compensates for this slowdown with the high data density and packs a whole terabyte onto a magnetic disk. According to the manufacturer, this corresponds to up to 340,000 data tracks on a width of around 25 millimeters. Converted, the track width is only 75 nanometers.
This requires extremely precise control of the read/write heads. To do this, Seagate uses AcuTrac technology, which constantly determines the flying height of the heads via two sensors and compensates for it with the finest temperature changes in the carrier material. In addition, Seagate uses Advanced Format technology to increase the sector size from 512 bytes to 4 kilobytes - this reduces the additional memory requirements for address and check bits, which are then available for user data.
The sequential transfer performance of the 4 TB drive from Seagate is impressive: the 3.5-inch hard drive achieves a maximum of almost 175 MB/s. In the particularly fast burst mode, in which the hard disk transfers data directly via the 64 MB buffer memory, the transfer rate even climbed to almost 250 MB/s.

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.
