With its striking front, the Midi-Tower Nimbus from Kolink stands out clearly. An RGB LED strip surrounds a large recess in the front, which significantly increases the airflow of the housing. The well-cooled hardware inside the case can be admired through the tempered glass side panel. Despite the solid side panel, the Kolink Nimbus only weighs 4.58 kilograms. The housing, which is designed for good airflow, can accommodate motherboards up to an ATX form factor, graphics cards can be up to 325 mm long - enough space for powerful gaming hardware.
Tempered glass side panel & a pre-installed fan
The solid chassis consists of one millimeter thick SECC steel and is equipped with a four millimeter thick tempered glass side part and a front made of plastic with an aluminum look. A huge recess, surrounded by a digitally addressable RGB LED strip, ensures an optimized airflow, the magnetic dust filter behind it keeps the inside of the housing clean.
The entire interior is coated in black and provided with a power supply cover to achieve a particularly clean look. There is space for a permanently installed hard drive cage with brackets for two 3.5 or 2.5 inch drives and the power supply. There are two additional slots for 2.5-inch drives on the back of the mainboard tray.
Dust filters keep the Kolink Nimbus clean
In order to ensure ventilation of the hardware installed in the housing, one of six possible 120 mm fans, also in black, is already included in the housing and installed on the back. On the front, a total of three 120 mm fans have space under the lid, and two further 120 mm fans can be installed. Two 140 mm fans can also be installed at the front.
A 240 mm radiator can be placed in the front and on the lid of the Castle housing. The mainboard tray and the cover of the power supply offer numerous openings for sophisticated cable management. Vents with fine dust filters are located in the lid and on the underside of the housing. They are magnetic and reinforced with a delicate honeycomb pattern.
Graphics cards can be up to 32.5 centimeters long and CPU coolers up to 16 centimeters high. In addition, the I / O panel placed on the front has a USB 3.0 Type-A port in addition to two USB 2.0 ports. There is also a switch for controlling the RGB lighting.

With four cores and SMT as well as high clock speeds and all the advantages of the Zen-2 architecture, the AMD Ryzen 3 3100 could develop into a new price-performance hit. At the latest with the Ryzen 3000 processors, AMD has become a part of Intel and has made life difficult for its competitor in almost all areas - whether on the desktop, in the server or even in the notebook, as most recently with the AMD Ryzen 9 4900HS.
The Ryzen 3 3100 offers four cores with SMT for eight threads. This means that AMD cancels additional cores compared to the next faster models, but leaves the HyperThreading feature activated, which is a novelty, especially in the generation comparison. However, the processor is still based on the Zen-2 architecture and brings with it the advanced 7-nm manufacturing, PCI-Express 4.0 and DDR4-3200.
Thanks to the high clock rates, the smallest spin-off of the Ryzen family can keep up with the much more expensive serial spin-offs in terms of gaming performance. However, due to the four cores and eight threads, they have to put back in the multicore performance, especially when it comes to the professional segment such as rendering. Here you are better served at least with a Ryzen 5.
When it comes to overclocking, the smaller Ryzen 3 3100 is particularly impressive, which can even be brought above the level of the supposedly faster model with a moderate voltage increase. While we were previously only able to set the maximum boost clock for all cores with the Ryzen processors and thus at least accelerate the multicore performance, Ryzen 3 now even has an additional clock increase of 100 to 200 MHz, which means that the single Threaded performance increases and then exceeds significantly more expensive models.
AMD Wraith CPU cooler. We've gone one better with a brand-new premium line of AMD Wraith Coolers for the AM4 platform and the advanced Ryzen processor. From the shallow Wraith Stealth to the high-end Wraith Prism, every Wraith Cooler offers virtually silent operation and excellent cooling performance. Plus, every 2nd and 3rd generation Ryzen 7 and 9 desktop processor features an AMD Wraith Cooler with color-configurable LED lighting, which makes your PC not only powerful, but also looks great. RGB colour control is available when using a compatible motherboard such as ASRock RGB LED, ASUS Aura sync, Biostar VIVID LED DJ, Gigabyte RGB Fusion or MSI Mystic Hell. Note: Not every AMD Wraith Cooler is equipped with user-controlled RGB lighting.
While Tower coolers create a stream of air parallel to the motherboard, which starts a few inches above it, Top Down blows directly onto the motherboard, where the air then spreads in all directions. Since modern mainboards do not require active cooling and case fans are usually mounted higher, this is the only airflow that can cool onboard components in the CPU environment - and tower coolers eliminate this effect, according to popular opinion.
Critical components are clearly the CPU voltage converter on the motherboard. These circuits reduce the 12 volts coming from the power supply to the desired supply voltage of the processor and, like all electrical components, operate with limited efficiency. Accurate measurements are very expensive, but typically there is a 15 to 30 percent greater current flow to the transducers than they are to the CPU - the rest is converted to heat at the voltage transformers.
The AMD Wraith Prism is the ultimate cooling solution from AMD for processors with air cooling. The Wraith Prism offers more than any cooling solution before: an RGB LED control around the light ring, transparent fan blades and colour control with dynamic rainbow effects. But the Wraith Prism is not only outwardly appealing. It also increased motherboard and RAM compatibility.
Note: the fans of the AMD Ryzen 3 and 5 series are not illuminated.

PowerColor Radeon RX 580 Red Dragon V2, 8GB GDDR5, 1x DVI ports, 1x HDMI 2.0b, 3x DisplayPort 1.4, Chip Polaris 20 XTX, chip clock 1257MHz, Boost: 1350MHz, memory 8GB GDDR5, 8000MHz, 256bit, 256GB / s, shader Units / TMUs / ROPs 2304/144/32, Cooling 2x Axial Fan (90mm), Special Features Backplate, H.265 encode / decode, AMD FreeSync, AMD TrueAudio, AMD Eyefinity, 2 Way CrossFireX, HDCP 2.2, 0dB zero fan mode (up to 60 ° C), boost clock overclocked, PCIe 3.0 x16 interface, 6221GFLOPS (single), 389GFLOPS (Double), DirectX 12.0, OpenGL 4.6, OpenCL 2.0, Vulkan 1.1, shader Model 6.0.
The Radeon RX 580 utilizes the Polaris-20 full complement of 36 compute units, or 2,304 shaders and a 256-bit memory interface, to which up to 8 GiByte GDDR5 RAM is coupled at a data rate of 8 Gbps. The only upgrade in gaming performance is the GPU clock, which is now higher in the case of the Radeon RX 580 with 1,340 MHz boost than most of the custom designs of its predecessor, the RX 480.
Now we come to probably the most important discipline in the evaluation of a graphics card: the (game) performance. As always, we do not use integrated benchmarks in our hands-on gaming performance tests, but real in-game action based on self-standing scores.
As far as no surprises: AMD's Radeon RX 580 behaves like an overclocked RX 480. That's enough of the RX 580 to put in front of the Geforce GTX 1060 6GB - albeit with just one percentage point conceivable tight. The custom designs will be five to ten percent faster with factory overclocking, but will also have to compete against overclocked Geforce graphics cards. In the end, the counterparties are at a level, so that interested parties can decide their preferences for the respective camp - who goes neutral on the matter, can decide between a higher power consumption at the expense of the Radeons or a smaller graphics memory at the expense Geforces.

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.
