The manufacturer Kolink, now renowned for its innovative and high-performance housings, is once again presenting the Midi-Tower Balance, a feature-rich gaming case that offers plenty of space for strong hardware behind its chic exterior. A powerful gaming setup based on an E-ATX mainboard can be admired through a tempered glass side panel, a power supply cover conceals unsightly cable spaghetti. The front with its large and fine-meshed ventilation grille not only ensures good airflow. The digitally addressable RGB LED strip placed in the middle accentuates the chic exterior. The lighting can be controlled via a switch on the I / O panel. Alternatively, the strip can also be connected and controlled directly on a mainboard. And a fine mesh with integrated dust filter on the top ensures proper ventilation. A pre-installed 120 mm fan, also with digitally addressable RGB lighting, ensures adequate ventilation.
The features of the Kolink Balance Midi-Tower at a glance:
Chic midi tower for motherboards up to E-ATX format
Tempered glass side panel for an unobstructed view inside
Front with expansive, fine-meshed ventilation grille
Subtle digitally addressable RGB lighting on the front
A pre-installed 120 mm fan with digitally addressable RGB lighting on the back
Up to five 120 mm and four 140 mm fans in total possible
Space for graphics cards up to 370 millimeters, CPU cooler up to 160 millimeters
I / O panel with control for RGB LEDs, 1x USB 3.0 and 2x USB 2.0
Kolink Balance: Lots of space for powerful gaming hardware
Even if the external dimensions correspond to a midi tower, thanks to its sophisticated design, the Balance is designed to accommodate a mainboard even in E-ATX format. There is also plenty of space for graphics cards with 370 millimeters to the front. At 160 millimeters, there is also enough space for common CPU coolers. A cover hides the power supply and the HDD cage, in which either two 3.5-inch or two 2.5-inch drives can be installed. Two 2.5-inch SSDs can be attached to the back of the mainboard bracket.
If you rely on air cooling, you will find enough slots for 120-millimeter fans. Three 120 mm or two 140 mm fans can be attached to the front. Either two 120 mm or two 140 mm fans can be attached to the lid. The lid is provided with a mesh through which air can flow almost unhindered. A dust filter ensures that the hardware inside does not have to be constantly cleaned. Another removable dust filter is on the floor. On the back, a powerful 120 millimeter fan with digitally addressable RGB LEDs already occupies the available slot. There is space for a 280 mm or 360 mm radiator on the front, another 280 mm radiator can be attached to the lid and the pre-installed fan on the back can be replaced by a 120 mm heat exchanger.
Tempered glass and RGB LEDs skilfully showcase hardware
Sophisticated cable management can be achieved through well-placed bushings and terminals. The spacious interior can be admired through the tempered glass side panel. A strip with digitally addressable RGB LEDs is attached in the middle of the front. A switch on the I / O panel is responsible for controlling it, including lighting effects. Alternatively, the strip can also be connected and controlled directly on the mainboard. In addition to the RGB switch and a power and reset switch, there is also a USB 3.0 slot and two USB 2.0 ports as well as 3.5 millimeter sockets for headphones and microphone and finally a power and an HDD LED.
AMD Ryzen 5 3400G, clock speed @ 4.20GHz, socket AM4, codenamed Picasso, IGP AMD Radeon Vega 11, cores 4, threads 8, base clock 3.70GHz, turbo clock 4.20GHz, memory controller Dual Channel PC4-23466U (DDR4-2933), CPU Features ECC support, Turbo Core 3.0, Precision Boost 2, Precision Boost Overdrive, XFR2, SMT, VT-Vi, X86-64, AMD-V, AVX, AVX2, AES (2x FMA), NX-Bit, EVP, AMD TrueAudio, multiplier freely selectable, architecture Zen +, L2 cache 2MB (4x 512kB), L3 cache 4MB, memory max. 64GB, memory bandwidth 46.9 GB/s.
AMD’s code name Picasso stands for the Raven Ridge Shrink from 14 nm to 12 nm, which also brings slight architectural improvements (Zen+ instead of Zen). As expected, the refined production provides an increase in clock rates, while the technical details have remained unchanged. More exciting are the changes to the Ryzen 5 3400G. Superficially, it also gets a clock update: The four Zen cores are accelerated from 3.6 to 3.9 to 3.7 to 4.2 GHz, the Vega 11 iGPU comes up to 1,400 instead of 1,250 MHz. Under the hood, the heat spreader of the APU is no longer provided with thermal grease, but soldered, which improves the heat dissipation.
In addition, users can adjust the Precision Boost Overdrive for automated overclocking on their X470 or B450 motherboard.
ALPENFÖHN Super Silent HI-TECH Gaming Edition, Type: Tower Cooler • Dimensions (WxHxD): 146x155x125mm • Fan: 1x 120x120x25mm RGB illuminated, 400-1050rpm, 103m³ / h, 22dB (A) • Weight: 850g • Connector: 4-pin PWM • sockets: 775, 1150, 1151, 1155, 1156, 1366, 2011, 2011-3, 2066, AM2, AM2 +, AM3, AM3 +, AM4, FM1, FM2, FM2 + • Special features: 4 heatpipes (6mm), heatpipe Direct touch, black finish, RGB control.
The completely black design gives the radiator an excellent and discreet look. However, the actual fan, measuring 130 mm, has been replaced by a transparent plastic case for the actual rotor in order to show off the RGB lighting.
New is the 4-pin RGB connector. We decided to use the fan directly via the RGB header on the board, ASUS AURA e.g. or via the enclosed switch if the mainboard does not have an RGB header yet. Thus, everyone can enjoy chic lighting, even if the board does not have RGB headers. If the lighting is activated by a switch, some modes are available. You can choose between different modes like color flow, single color or pulses. Adjust the speed and brightness as well as select different ready-made colors.
Once again we show that one does not always have to reinvent a wheel to present a very good cooler. Excellent cooling performance, 100% RAM compatibility, and a fan with a high-quality FDB bearing that produces no noticeable noise.
The black paint is also excellent for the cooler and if you do not want the lighting, you can simply switch it off, but still enjoy the discreet design.

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.
