Elegant look and spacious interior: The Midi-Tower Kolink Bastion combines functionality with a reserved yet chic exterior. Beneath the tempered glass side door, the Midi Tower is decorated with an RGB LED strip, its colors are discreetly illuminated behind a strip of acrylic milk glass. The color scheme is complemented by a rear fan with digitally addressable RGB LEDs. A switch on the I/O panel controls the lighting. The spacious interior is packed with powerful hardware. A fine mesh with integrated dust filter on the top provides a proper ventilation.
The features of the Kolink Bastion Midi-Tower at a glance:
chic midi tower for motherboards up to E-ATX format
side part made of tempered glass with hinges
subtle digitally addressable RGB lighting on the power supply cover
a pre-installed 120 mm rear fan with digitally addressable RGB LEDs
up to five 120 mm and two 140 mm fans possible in total
room for graphics cards up to 370 mm, CPU cooler up to 160 mm
I/O panel with control for RGB LEDs, 1x USB 3.0 and 2x USB 2.0
Lots of space for gaming hardware at Kolink Bastion
Although the exterior dimensions are similar to a midi tower, the bastion, with its sophisticated design, is designed to accommodate a motherboard even in E-ATX format. Even enough space for graphics cards with 370 millimeters to the front. With 160 millimeters, there is enough space for common CPU coolers. A cover hides the power adapter and HDD cage, which can accommodate either two 3.5-inch or two 2.5-inch drives. Two 2.5-inch SSDs can be attached to the back of the motherboard bracket.
Those who rely on air cooling will find enough slots for 120-millimeter fans. Two 120-millimeter fans can be attached to the power supply cover, while a removable air filter under the power supply ensures dust-free operation. Either two 120 mm or two 140 mm fans can be attached to the lid. The lid is provided with a mesh, which lets the air flow through almost unhindered. Again, a dust filter ensures that the hardware inside does not have to be constantly cleaned. At the back, a powerful 120-millimeter fan already uses the available slot. The pre-installed fan is also equipped with a digitally controllable RGB LED lighting. Of course, instead of the fans adequate radiators can be installed.
Tempered glass and RGB LEDs highlight the hardware in a proper way
Even the motherboard tray is a real eye-catcher. Instead of boring quads and rectangles, for example, the recess behind the mainboard can be seen in form of a trapezoid. Well-placed feedthroughs and terminals allow for sophisticated cable management. The chic interior can be admired through a tempered glass side door, which can also be lifted out of the hinges. A strip of digitally addressable RGB LEDs is placed at the front of the power supply cover. A cover made of acrylic milk glass ensures a subtle light scattering. Its control and light effects are handled by a switch on the I/O panel.
The lighting on the pre-installed fan is also via a corresponding 3-pin connector (5VDG). Both can be connected to the two slots on the controller of the I/O panel. The fan also has a 3-pin socket to which other RGB components can be connected. Alternatively, the strip and fan can be connected to a corresponding 3-pin connector on the mainboard and is controlled via the software of the mainboard. This way the RGB switch on the I/O panel can be used as a reset button. In addition to the RGB/Reset switch, there is also a USB 3.0 and two USB 2.0 slots, as well as 3.5mm jacks for headphone and microphone, and a power and HDD LED.

"Comet Lake-S" - This is the name of the 10th generation of Intel Core processors. In addition to increased clock rates compared to the 9th generation "Coffee Lake-S Refresh", "Comet Lake-S" supports higher memory clock rates and offers support for Intel WiFi 6 (Gig +). The biggest change, however, is the change to the new LGA 1200 socket. This is as large as its predecessor in terms of dimensions, but has additional pins so that "Come Lake-S" processors are not compatible with mainboards with a different socket are!
The Core i5-10600 is worth a closer look for many users simply because of its lower purchase price. Unlike its predecessor Core i5-9600, it now offers hyperthreading - which applies to all Comet Lake S processors in the Core series.
Six cores including hyperthreading are more than enough for many gamers' everyday use. In games, it cannot quite keep up with the top models, but the CPU performance is the limiting factor in the rarest of cases. The higher the resolution and the more detailed the display, the more important the graphics card becomes.
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.

The MSI H410M-A Pro in detail
The MSI H410M-A Pro Micro-ATX motherboard has a PCIe-x16 slot that is connected to the chipset with a full 16 lanes. The board also has a PCIe 3.0 x1 slot for plug-in and expansion cards.
The M.2 slot connected via four PCIe 3.0 lanes supports the NVMe protocol and, in combination with corresponding M.2 SSDs, enables a data transfer rate of just under 4 GB / s. This is about eight times faster than an SSD connected via SATA 6G! Additional drives such as SSDs, HDDs and optical drives can be connected via four SATA 3.0 ports. A maximum of 64 GB of RAM with a clock speed of up to 2,933 MHz can be accommodated in two DDR4 DIMM slots.
The MSI H410M-A Pro provides two USB 3.0 ports on the I / O panel. Additional peripheral devices can be connected via four USB 2.0 sockets. A DVI-D and HDMI connection for image playback via the processor's integrated graphics unit are also located on the I / O panel.

KFA2 GeForce RTX 2060 [1-Click OC], 6GB GDDR6, DVI, HDMI, DP, connections 1x DVI, 1x HDMI 2.0b, 1x DisplayPort 1.4a, chip TU106-200X-KA-A1 "Turing", production 12nm (TSMC ), Chip clock 1365MHz, Boost: 1710MHz (OC mode), memory 6GB GDDR6, 7000MHz, 192bit, 336GB / s, shader units / TMUs / ROPs 1920/120/48, TDP 160W (NVIDIA), cooling 2x axial -Fan (90mm), special features real-time ray tracing (5GRays / s), ray tracing cores (30), tensor cores (240), H.265 encode / decode, NVIDIA G-Sync, NVIDIA VR-Ready, HDCP 2.2, Backplate, boost clock overclocked (+ 30MHz), interface PCIe 3.0 x16, computing power 6.57 TFLOPS (FP32), 205 GFLOPS (FP64), DirectX 12 Ultimate (12_1), OpenGL 4.6, OpenCL 1.2, Vulkan 1.2, Shader Model 6.5.
Like all RTX 2060 cards, the KFA2 is based on the TU106 chip, more precisely TU106-200A-KA-A1. This has 1920 Cuda cores, 120 TMUs and 48 ROPs. The base clock of the RTX 2060 is a moderate 1,365 MHz and the boost is 1,710 MHz if the 1-click OC clock is activated in Windows using the Xtreme Tuner Plus tool.
To overclock the KFA2 GeForce RTX 2060 1-Click-OC, we use the Xtreme Tuner Plus Tool from KFA2. For the RTX20 graphics cards that offer 1-Click-OC function, you always have to use the tool for the clock plus. On the RTX 2060, the 1-click OC button brings an increase from 30 MHz to 1,710 MHz. With manual overclocking, the power target cannot be changed and you are forced to work at 100%. The stable GPU clock leveled off at 115 MHz. Starting from a boost clock of 1710 MHz, we landed at 1.825 MHz. This corresponds to approximately 6.0% growth. The maximum boost measured with GPU-Z was 1,950 MHz.
We also overclocked the Samsung GDDR6 memory. Again, this turned out not to be particularly overclocking, compared to chips from Micron, which we found on the KFA2 GeForce RTX 2070 OC. The stable offset was 735 MHz. The standard graphics memory clocks at 1,750 MHz or 7,000 MHz. After that, the GDDR6 clock was at 2,066 or 8,264 MHz. As a percentage, we have a clock increase of just over 18%.
The GeForce RTX 2060 also placed very well in the games and easily takes on the GTX 1070, even if it has 2 GB more memory. It takes more clock to beat the GTX 1080. After overclocking, the RTX 2060 delivers more power than the GTX 1080, which is amazing.
In terms of performance, the KFA2 GeForce RTX 2060 1-Click OC showed its best side. In most cases, it left the GTX 1070 behind in the benchmarks; after overclocking, it could easily keep up with the GTX 1080. The 1-Click-OC feature increases the clock by 30 MHz. The performance boost was really noticeable after manually overclocking the card. 100 MHz higher GPU clock and 735 MHz higher memory clock showed a really good effect.
The custom cooler with two copper heat pipes in connection with the two 90 mm fans is exemplary. The fans usually do not start under normal GPU load and are therefore inaudible. When gaming, the fan control intervenes wonderfully and the card is very quiet.

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.
