Lian Li again manages to improve an already extremely functional and chic case. The Lian Li O11Dynamic XL Midi-Tower combines brushed aluminum with tempered glass elements. The dimensions of the case have been adjusted so that even huge SSI-EEB motherboards ASUS ROG Dominus Extreme with Intel's C621 chipset and socket 3647 for Xeon processors can be comfortably accommodated in the case with the help of an optional expansion rail. What has remained is the wide two-chamber design of the Midi-Tower, which offers plenty of space for further sophisticated gaming components with excellent cable management and enables the installation of extensive air or custom water cooling.
The features of the Lian Li O11Dynamic XL (ROG Certified) Midi-Tower:
Noble combination of aluminum, tempered glass and steel
Space for motherboards with E-ATX, ATX, Micro-ATX or Mini-ITX form factor
6x 2.5 "SSDs & 4x 3.5" HDDs including HDD hot swap function
Front panel with 4x USB 3.0 Type-A & 1x USB 3.1 Type-C
Graphics cards up to 44.6 cm in length
Three installation slots for 360 mm radiators
Up to ten 120 mm fans possible
E-ATX case with elegant design: brushed aluminum meets tempered glass
With the modular Lian Li O11Dynamic XL (ROG Certified) Midi-Tower, steel is skillfully combined with a side part made of tinted tempered glass. Lian Li goes one step further and equips the right side part and the lid with 1 millimeter thick aluminum. The front is also made of tempered glass and, together with the side part, allows an almost unobstructed view of the inside of the housing.
The right part of the front houses the I / O panel with a USB 3.1 Type-C port, two USB 3.0 ports and the two mandatory audio connections. Two further USB 3.0 ports are located on the right foot end of the front. There is a subtle RGB LED strip between the I / O panel and tempered glass pane, which extends from top to bottom and whose lighting can be controlled via two switches on the panel. Optionally, the RGB LED strip can also be connected to a conventional 5VDG slot on an appropriately equipped mainboard.
Plenty of room for gaming hardware
The Lian Li O11Dynamic XL (ROG Certified) Midi Tower offers plenty of space for powerful gaming hardware. Even the huge SSI EEB mainboard ROG Dominus Extreme from Asus can be installed with the help of an optional expansion rail from Lian Li. Graphics cards can be up to 446 millimeters long, CPU coolers can have a height of 167 millimeters. An ATX power supply is installed upright at the bottom left and can be 210 millimeters long.
For the installation of AiO or custom water cooling, the case offers the option of accommodating up to three 360 mm radiators at the same time: one in the lid, one on the bottom and one next to the mainboard. In the right side part there are also ventilation slots to dissipate the heat accordingly. If you want to install three 360 mm radiators at the same time, narrow specimens should be used in the lid and a slim radiator next to the mainboard. In general, the installation of three triple radiators is possible, but this requires some attention when choosing the components for the custom water cooling. In the lid there is also the option of installing a 280 mm radiator.
Excellent airflow for fantastic cooling
The radiator slots can of course also be filled with fans. On the side behind the front, on the lid and on the bottom there can be up to three 120s, on the lid and on the bottom there are two 140s instead of three 120s. For a clean cable management, there are several partially rubberized cable bushings, which are placed on the middle plate next to the mainboard. The right chamber houses the hardware that hardly radiates heat and does not need to be cooled, such as the power supply and the HDD drives.
The Lian Li O11Dynamic XL (ROG Certified) Midi-Tower stands slightly elevated on rubberized steel feet, so that cool air gets into the case through the bottom provided with a dust filter. Due to the chimney effect, the warm air rises, where it escapes through the lid, which is also equipped with a dust filter. Two additional dust filters cover the two perforated grilles in the right side section. The elegant Lian Li O11Dynamic XL (ROG Certified) Midi-Tower is not only definitely a real eye-catcher and can easily accommodate gaming hardware, but is also particularly suitable for PC enthusiasts who want to cool their hardware using a custom loop.
There are two HDD cages for mounting the data storage, in which four 3.5-inch HDDs or four 2.5-inch HDDs / SSDs can be accommodated. The four slots can be reached from the back of the housing, they are covered by a perforated cover. Three 2.5-inch drives can also be found on the back of the mainboard tray

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.
Liquid cooling system, consisting of: • Processor Cooler • Graphics Card Cooler • Radiator • 12V Pump (s) • Coolant (in different colors possible) • Hard tube piping • Expansion tank • Accessories (connections, fans, etc.)
Water cooling in a PC is a powerful active technique to dissipate power dissipation into heat.
In computers, electrical energy taken from the mains is converted into heat. As the power density of modern computers increases, so does the heating of individual components. In previous computers, the surrounding air was enough to dissipate low specific power dissipation in relation to the surface due to radiation and natural convection without any additional heat sinks. Today, passively cooled PCs generally only have heatsinked; used in actively cooled by fan assistive acting heat sink.
The aim of water cooling in a PC is to dissipate the heat generated in the PC, in particular, as efficiently and as quietly as possible, especially from the semiconductors that heat up during operation, such as the main processor or graphics processor. Also, a possible increase in performance of the computer by operating on the officially approved specifications (overclocking) is a field of application of water cooling.
The comparatively high heat capacity of the cooling medium water favors the heat absorption of small-area heat sources, as they are typical in a computer.
In addition to the improved heat dissipation, the water cooling often allows a considerably quieter operation compared to other cooling concepts.
The heat flow between the semiconductor and the heat transfer surface is ultimately limited by the finite thermal conductivity of the internal, intermediate materials. These materials thus represent a solid and unchangeable thermal resistance as a sum.
MSI MPG X570 Gaming Plus, form factor ATX, chipset AMD X570, RAM 4x DDR4 DIMM, dual PC4-35200U / DDR4-4400 (OC), max. 128GB (UDIMM), expansion slots 2x PCIe 4.0 x16, 3x PCIe 3.0 x1, 1x M.2 / M-Key (PCIe 4.0 x4, 22110/2280/2260/2242), 1x M.2 / M- Key (PCIe 3.0 x4 / SATA, 2280/2260/2242), external connections 1x HDMI 1.4, 1x USB-C 3.1 (CPU), 1x USB-A 3.1 (CPU), 4x USB-A 3.0, 2x USB -A 2.0, 1x Gb LAN (Realtek RTL8111H), 5x jack, 1x Toslink, 1x PS / 2 combo, buttons / switches USB BIOS Flashback (external), audio 7.1, RAID level 0/1/10 (X570 ), Multi-GPU AMD 2-Way CrossFireX, lighting red, 1 zone (accent center), special features AMD X570 with fan, audio + solid capacitors, Diagnostic LED (LED indicators), 1x M.2 passive cooler.
The AMD X570 high-end chipset supports AMD's Ryzen 3000 processors (code name: Matisse) and their complete feature set, especially the PCI Express standard in version 4.0 (PCIe 4.0). PCIe 4.0 is backward compatible and can be used with all expansion cards from previous generations. A data transfer rate that is twice as high as that of PCIe 3.0 is possible per PCIe 4.0 lane, so that an NVMe SSD connected via four PCIe 4.0 lanes can achieve a theoretical read / write speed of up to 7.8 GB / s. Each mainboard with the X570 chipset is also suitable for all other AMD CPU series for the AM4 socket.
The MSI MPG X570 Gaming Plus in detail:
A PCIe 4.0 slot in x16 format is available for graphics cards, which is directly connected to the Ryzen 3000 processor via a total of 16 PCIe 4.0 lanes. Another PCIe-x16 slot is connected to the chipset via 4 lanes (PCIe 4.0 for Ryzen 3000; PCIe 3.0 for all previous generations). There are also three PCIe 3.0 x1 slots available for plug-in and expansion cards, two of which can be used simultaneously.
The Ryzen 3000 CPUs provide four PCIe 4.0 lanes for the direct connection of NVMe SSDs. With this X570 mainboard, these four lanes are used to connect a single M.2 slot for NVMe SSDs. In addition to another M.2 slot with x4 connection, the S5-6 chipset also provides six SATA 6G connections.
Faster connections thanks to PCI-Express 4.0
On the I / O panel, the MSI MPG X570 Gaming Plus offers two USB 3.1 ports, one with Type C and one with Type A socket. USB 3.1 or USB 3.1 Gen 2 achieves maximum speeds of 10 Gbit / s per port and USB ports with this standard generally support the quick charging function of smartphones and tablets, while the new USB Type-C port is particularly thin and can be inserted on both sides. There is also an HDMI 1.4 connection for AMD CPUs with integrated Vega graphics.
There is also a 1 Gigabit LAN port (Realtek 8111H), on-board sound (Realtek ALC1220 audio codec), an enhanced PCIe slot and numerous internal headers. Also on Bo (a) rd are an optimized power supply, a CMOS jumper, a BIOS flashback button and support for RAM kits up to 128 GB.
RGB LED components can be connected and controlled via two 4-pin RGB headers (12V) and two digitally addressable 3-pin RGB headers (5V), provided they are compatible with the RGB software of the mainboard.

With the GeForce RTX 3080, Nvidia wants to reach enthusiasts who do not necessarily have to have the fastest model with the largest possible memory capacity, but who value speed and graphics quality.
The GeForce RTX 3080 is the first player graphics card with the new amp architecture. The graphics card is based on the GA102 GPU and therefore the largest chip in Nvidia's portfolio. This means that the second fastest model also uses the largest GPU for the first time in a long time - the GTX 1080 and RTX 2080 only had the second largest expansion stage.
The GeForce RTX 3080 makes a huge leap in performance compared to the old Turing generation. The average frame rate of 3,840 × 2,160 increases by a whopping 60 percent compared to the GeForce RTX 2080 Super and the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti is also left behind by 31 percent in comparison. Even a heavily overclocked GeForce RTX 2080 Ti has no chance and has to admit defeat by 15 percent - especially since not every GeForce RTX 2080 Ti achieves such OC values.
If you are looking for a graphics card for Ultra HD or for high frame rates, the GeForce RTX 3080 is the right choice. The new graphics card is 60 percent faster than the GeForce RTX 2080 Super in classic rasterizer titles and is even 31 percent faster than the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti. There is no game on the test course that does not run smoothly in Ultra HD with maximum graphics details. And often more than 60 FPS are possible.
If you compare the power loss with activated ray tracing of Ampere and Turing, you will find that the GeForce RTX 3080 loses slightly less FPS than the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti. The motto here is: the more ray tracing is used, the more amperes are separated. The difference is smaller than the advantages promised in isolation with the RT cores would have led one to hope, but in combination with the significantly higher raw performance, ray tracing runs noticeably better than before.
The GeForce RTX 3080 is fast enough for full ray tracing details in WQHD, whoever switches on the DLSS, which is visibly matured in version 2.0, can also use ray tracing smoothly in Ultra HD.
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.

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.
TOSHIBA Harddisk 3TB, SATA 6Gb/s, Form factor: 3.5" • Speed: 7200rpm • Cache: 64MB • Power consumption: 6.4W (operation), 5.2W (idle) • Volume: 28dB(A) (operation), 27dB(A) (idle) • Recording process: Conventional magnetic Recording (CMR) • sectors: 4KB with emulation (512e) • Encryption: not available • Special features: not available • Warranty: two years
It was not too many years ago that the idea of a 1TB drive was almost mind-boggling. However, with the continued explosion of digital data, including large-file-size games that support hi-resolution and/or 3D graphics, HD movies, HD music (and more), the need to store that data now makes a 1TB HDD not seem all that large. Also, enterprise storage systems are experiencing similar (if not even greater) growth, so more storage capacity with fewer drives is always going to be an attractive option. Hence, the market is definitely there for ever-larger capacity HDDs.
Toshiba’s DT01ACA300 HDD is a consistent performer. In our testing, it attained over 190MB/s sequential reads and writes for all transfer sizes of 16KB and larger, being under 190MB/s for only the smallest 1/3 of the transfer sizes. This demonstrates a high level of consistent performance. Our testing gave us a total score that was 20% higher than other similar drives. Our PCMark Vantage HDD suite testing gave us a total score that was 10% higher than other similar drives. In our HD Tune Pro testing, we even saw burst speeds of nearly 418MB/s, this is flash storage territory.
Toshiba’ DT01ACA300 HDD is a top-performing mechanical drive. We saw a number of benchmark results that best any of the 3TB mechanical HDDs that we have previously tested. Note that in the PCMark Vantage testing, this HDD excelled with both Windows Media Center and Windows Photo Gallery – in other words, content creation. Although this drive is marketed as a client HDD, we are seeing performance that should also appeal to media professionals and other content creators, and 3TB of capacity in a single drive to boot.

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.
