    CORE COMPONENTS

    The CPU (Central Processing Unit) is the microprocessor of a computer, or the central processing unit, the real heart of a system; it is the unit that controls and supervises all the functions of the machine. It performs all the calculation operations and therefore represents the main parameter to evaluate the performance of a computer. It consists of a unit with arithmetic and logic functions called ALU (Arithmetic / Logic Unit), a control and timing unit called CTU (Control / Timing Unit) and registers, small memory cells that contain the data to be used in mathematical / logical or control operations.

    If you are creating your configuration, the CPU has a considerable weight. Increasing clock frequencies and the number of cores can make a huge difference in overall performance, ensuring a more responsive, more fluid and faster speed in carrying out heavy operations.

    Even if buying the best possible CPU for the maximum budget available to you is natural, sometimes you'd better save some money for other components. Determine the type of processor and the maximum budget based on what you intend to do with the computer. Even though the processors are important, it makes no sense to pair a high-performance chip with a slow mechanical hard drive.

    Processor (CPU)

    A Motherboard, also called system board, in English Motherboard or Mainboard, abbreviated MB, M/B, Mobo is a type of main electronic board that collects all the electronic circuitry and the interface connections between the various main internal components a personal computer, such as memory and other electronic cards mounted or housed above, also including expansion buses and interfaces to external devices.

    Motherboard

    RAM (acronym of English Random Access Memory) is one of the most important components, the one that affects more the performance of the PC, the system and programs.

    RAM is the short-term memory of the computer, the place where the computer records the programs and data it is currently using.
    To understand better just make a comparison between the RAM and the hard disk: the hard disk is the fixed memory, the long-term one, where the data remain in memory even if the computer is turned off; RAM, on the other hand, is a similar memory, but it is emptied and is completely erased when the PC is switched off.
    RAM is important because otherwise the PC would be forced to write and read data continuously from the hard disk, which compared to the RAM is enormously slower.

    Memory (RAM)

    The Video card is one of the most important hardware components in a computer.

    The video card, also known as a graphics card, is one of the fundamental hardware components of every computer. It is responsible for 3D graphics acceleration and, thanks to the video drivers, allows transforming the electrical signals sent by the processor into video signals, then displayed by the output device (ie the screen). Compared to the past, however, today video cards are able to "think" for themselves, generating autonomous three-dimensional and two-dimensional graphics animations, thus relieving the processor of all the complex calculations necessary for the management of graphics.

    With the same "technological generation", the differences between the video cards of one and the other manufacturer are generally minimal if not inexistent.

    Doors and terminology

    HDMI

    It is the latest standard, it carries an uncompressed digital audio and video signal. HDMI is the standard that has replaced the old analogue standards such as VGA and is now present on any screen.

    DisplayPort

    It carries a digital signal, both audio and video, and uses the transmission of data packets, a form of digital communication found in technologies such as Ethernet, USB and PCI Express. the DisplayPort supports features that improve image quality. Furthermore, the signal degrades less over long distances compared to HDMI.

    DVI

    The DVI output allows you to get around some of the most known problems of the VGA output (such as image distortion) by matching a pixel on the screen to each pixel of the graphics card. A graphics card with DVI allows users to choose between connecting a standard VGA monitor (via an adapter) or a digital monitor via the DVI connector.

    NVIDIA SLI technology

    NVIDIA SLI technology is a revolutionary platform that intelligently scales graphics performance by combining multiple NVIDIA graphics solutions on a single SLI-certified motherboard. Using proprietary algorithms and dedicated scalability logic in each NVIDIA graphics processing unit (GPU), NVIDIA SLI technology offers up to twice the performance with two boards. Supports up to 4 monitors.

    AMD Crossfire technology

    AMD Crossfire technology is only applicable to GPUs produced by AMD and offers up to twice the performance with two boards. Supports up to 4 monitors.

    STORAGE SYSTEMS

    A hard disk drive (commonly abbreviated in hard disk and with the abbreviations HDD, HD) in electronics and computer science indicates a magnetic mass storage device that uses one or more magnetized disks for data storage (files, programs and operating systems). It has long been the only choice on personal computers, but is experiencing a loss of market share in favor of the latest solid state (SSD) units.

    In recent years, Solid State Drive (SSD) has become more and more widespread, due to the accessibility of prices and greater capacities. Solid State Drives have faster performance than hard drives, use less power, work more silently and, when heating up less, do not have moving parts. They are therefore more durable and are less likely to go wrong.

    To determine what size of HDD or SSD you need you must consider the number of programs and games that you intend to install, in addition to the amount of other data (such as music and movies) that you intend to memorize.

    The unit of measurement of the data is called byte:

    1,024 Bytes = 1 Kilobyte (KB)
    1,024 Kilobytes (KB) = 1 Megabyte (MB)
    1.073.741.824 Bytes = 1 Gigabyte (GB)
    1 Gigabyte (GB) = 1.024 Megabyte (MB)
    1 Terabyte (TB) = 1,024 Gigabyte (GB)

    To install Windows 10 without any problem, you need at least 20 gigabytes (GB) of free space. Most programs take between 5 and 500 megabytes (MB); however, larger computer games can also take up several gigabytes of space.

    Laps indicate the speed at which the hard disk drive is running. The more laps, the more data you can copy / move in a specific time frame. A 7,200 rpm hard disk drive can copy / move data faster than a 5,400 rpm hard disk drive.

    POWER AND COOLING

    The power supply, called PSU (Power Supply Unit) is the component that supplies the electric current necessary for the computer's operation. The necessary power of a computer varies from a minimum of about 350W to a maximum of more than 1000W. All of our power supplies are 80 Plus certified and guarantee high efficiency and a useful saving of electricity.

    For our choice in our configurator you can not find economic power supplies, so as to ensure high quality and stability of the systems, we also guarantee that the number of watts shown refer to the actual continuous power and not to the power peak.

    Below is a table showing the indicative power absorbed by the various components:

    For most mid-range or low-end processors, the default fan is sufficient, but if you order a powerful processor, be sure to choose a processor cooler enough to disperse the heat produced by the processor.

    This is true if you order a high-level editing system or a powerful gaming PC. In this case we recommend choosing a heatpipe or liquid cooling device.

    Processor Cooling

    The thermoconductive paste is a paste characterized by a high thermal conductivity and a high specific weight.

    Its function is to eliminate the veil of air inevitably present between the processor and the heat sink caused by the base of the heatsink is not perfectly flat. Since the air is a bad conductor of heat, its presence between the coupled surfaces would decrease the efficiency of heat transfer between the processor and the heat sink. All cooling devices are already supplied with a standard thermally conductive paste.

    However for overclocked configurations, we recommend choosing a thermoconductive paste different from the standard one. The other thermoconductive pastes in our catalog increase the thermal conductivity and manage to lower the temperature to 7 ° C.

    WIRELESS NETWORK

    On all our computers you can have a wireless network. To create a wireless network, you need a wireless network card on each desktop computer or laptop that you want to connect to the network, however, you need a router / modem to connect to the Internet.

    You can choose between various network cards, which differ from each other for speed in data exchange and additional features.

    Below we explain in a simple way how a wireless network works:

    - Internet connection arrives at home in the router / modem.
    - Each desktop computer and / or laptop connects to the router (with or without wires) and each desktop computer and / or laptop is connected to the internet from the router / modem.
    - The desktop computer and / or laptop can send signals to the router and the router can transmit them to other computers. Thus, it is possible to access the memory (HDD / SSD) of computers in different rooms. Using the "Network resources" you can choose which folders to share on the network.

    Warning: the quality of the wireless network can depend on many factors, do not underestimate the distance between the various computers and / or access points (routers) and the thickness of the walls of the house. If necessary, evaluate the purchase of any Wi-Fi repeaters that need to amplify and cover any areas not covered by the signal.

    Wireless Network Card

    Basically, the computer comes with the USB ports built into the motherboard. You can also choose to add ports to your configuration.

    USB / Thunderbolt

    Capture/Streaming Card

    The IEEE 1394 standard (commonly known as FireWire) is a standard serial bus interface that is most commonly used for video cameras, audio devices, and storage devices (hard drives).

    Firewire 400 can transfer data between a computer and peripheral devices at a speed of 400 Mbps, while Firewire 800 can transfer data between a computer and peripheral devices at a speed of 800 Mbps.
