Especially in your own four walls, many people strive to provide peace and quiet in order to find relaxation. Unfortunately, the PC also opposes these efforts in many cases and is annoying with high noise levels during operation. With Tranquility, Kolink offers just the right housing for noise-stricken people. Comprehensive insulation provides protection against loud fans or hard drives. So that the hardware inside remains well cooled, the tranquility offers subtle ventilation slots on the front. The insulated cover can optionally be removed, for example if a radiator is installed underneath. The Kolink Tranquility can be trimmed for performance with optimized airflow, but remains nice and quiet thanks to the additional insulation on the front and side panels. Externally, the gaming case also impresses with its reserved and modern design.
The features of the Kolink Tranquility at a glance

Comprehensive insulation & two pre-installed fans
The solid chassis is made of one millimeter thick SECC steel. Both side parts and the front are lined with insulation mats. The solid lid is also insulated, but can also be removed completely, for example to improve the airflow. Because underneath, a 240 mm radiator can be attached like on the front. On the front, in the look of brushed aluminum, there are two subtle ventilation slots on the side for the air supply. A 240 radiator can also be accommodated there.
In order to ensure ventilation of the hardware installed in the housing, two of six possible 120 mm fans are already included and installed in the housing. One is placed in the lowest of three possible places behind the front, the second in the only place on the back. Two additional 120 mm fans can be installed under the cover.
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. A holder for a total of two 2.5-inch drives is attached to the back of the mainboard tray. The mainboard tray and the cover of the power supply offer numerous openings for sophisticated cable management. At the bottom there is a removable dust filter for the power supply.

Twenty months after the launch of the first AMD Ryzen 1000 eight-core processors in the mid-range and thus the number 1 platform for private customers, Intel is catching up: Eight cores for the LGA 1151 socket are now also available from the market leader.
The first two processors of this type hear the name Intel Core i9-9900K and Intel Core i7-9700K and ring in the beginning of the ninth generation of cores at Intel - which is based in the heart, however, still on the sixth generation. Also, Coffee Lake Refresh will continue to be manufactured in Intel's own factories in 14nm ++, the same level of 14nm manufacturing as its predecessor.
Essentially, the refresh serves only to be able to offer eight cores. Intel goes with Coffee Lake Refresh but not only initial vulnerabilities, but also a year-long criticism of the competitor AMD with his Ryzen CPUs had recently moved back into focus: The Heatspreader is soldered again to the processor die, which colloquially Thermal paste known as "toothpaste" is a thing of the past at Coffee Lake Refresh.
The Core i7-9700K is the most interesting choice of the new 9000s in terms of price / performance. It offers eight physical cores with a fairly high turbo (single-core 4.9 GHz and all-core turbo about 4.6 GHz). In current games, he is usually on the second place. However, the lack of hyperthreading makes it fall back into midfield in some applications. In applications pays a high core / thread count and here is the actually good Core i7-9700K beaten by the "old" top model Core i7-8700K (6 cores / threads 12).
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.
MSI MPG Z390 Gaming Edge AC, form factor ATX, chipset Intel Z390, RAM 4x DDR4 DIMM, dual PC4-35200U / DDR4-4400, max. 64GB, expansion slots 3x PCIe 3.0 x16, 3x PCIe 3.0 x1, 2x M.2 / M-Key (PCIe 3.0 x4 / SATA, 22110/2280/2260/2242), external connections 1x HDMI 1.4, 1x DisplayPort 1.2, 1x USB-C 3.1, 1x USB-A 3.1, 2x USB-A 3.0, 2x USB-A 2.0, 1x Gb LAN (Intel I219-V), 5x jack, 1x Toslink, 1x PS / 2 combo, 3.0, 4x USB 2.0, 6x SATA 6Gb / s, 1x serial, Audio 7.1, RAID level 0/1/5/10 (Z390), Multi-GPU NVIDIA 2 -Way SLI, AMD 3-Way-CrossFireX, RGB lighting, special features Audio + solid capacitors, Diagnostic LED (LED indicators), Bluetooth 5.0 + WLAN, manufacturer's warranty three years.
With the new Coffee Lake-S Refresh, a new generation of motherboards is also appearing, which now manifests itself in the form of the Z390 chipset. The Z390 is the new top chipset for Intel's Socket 1151 mainstream platform and will complement the Z370, and unlike the leap from Z270 to Z370, compatibility with old CPUs of the 8th core generation (Coffee Lake-S) remains. The board uses the Z390 standard equipment and waives largely on additional chips if they are not necessary. You get here so a configuration with two M.2 ports, up to 6 SATA ports, three PCIe X16 slots, but only two of which are really intended for the use of graphics cards and also reinforced with the well-known MSI PCIe Steel Armor, in addition to the MSI-typical features with Audio Boost 4, gold plated connectors and the typical good MSI software, the board uses of course the features of the Z390. This means you get natively connected USB3.1 Gen2 ports and also an Intel Wireless AC9442 module that uses CNVi and provides WLAN and Bluetooth to the latest standards.
Probably the most significant changes to the new generation have less with the chipset itself so with the quite changed since the Z370 "philosophy". With the new CPUs with significantly more cores, the manufacturers place significantly more emphasis on better voltage conversion and cooling. Both things that cost quite money and have led to that in the middle class of optics factor is declining again. With the Z390, you can get everything the gaming heart desires and the markup between Z370 and Z390 is appropriate.
The cooling of the MSI MPG Z390 Gaming Edge AC makes a great impression. Finally, coolers are used again, which are also there for cooling and serve not only the optical beautification of the mainboard. Especially on the large cooler for the voltage conversion, you realize that. It offers a really good heat distribution and keeps the voltage transformers at good temperatures.
Overall, the new MSI MPG Z390 Gaming Edge AC delivers a convincing performance. One could briefly say the Z390 is the better Z370. This not only applies to the chipset itself, but simply to the completely updated platform with the latest BIOS for fast memory, improved features and new coolers.

Microsoft Windows 10 Professional 64Bit, Full Version!
Windows 10 is the Goldilocks version of Microsoft's venerable PC operating system -- a "just right" compromise between the familiar dependability of Windows 7, and the forward-looking touchscreen vision of Windows 8.
This new Windows, available as a free upgrade for existing Windows 7 and Windows 8 noncorporate users, is built from the ground up to pursue Microsoft's vision of a unified OS that spans all devices without alienating any one platform. It's an attempt to safeguard Microsoft's crumbling software hegemony, assailed on all sides by Google and Apple. And it's a vision of the future as Microsoft sees it, where a single user experience spans every piece of technology we touch. Welcome to Windows as a service.
Yes, this new OS is chock-full of fresh features. To name just a few: a lean, fast Internet Explorer replacement called Edge; Microsoft's Siri-like voice-controlled virtual assistant, Cortana; and the ability to stream real-time games to your desktop from an Xbox One in another room. (And in case you're wondering: there is no "Windows 9" -- Microsoft skipped it, going straight from 8 to 10.)
But Windows 10 is also the end of a long, awkward road that began with the release of Windows 8 in 2012, when Microsoft tried to convince a world of keyboard and mouse wielders that touchscreens were the way to go -- or else. Ironically, in 2015, the PC hardware for that touchscreen future is now here -- everything from 2-in-1s such as the Lenovo Yoga line to convertible tablets with detachable keyboards, like Microsoft's own Surface. And Windows 10 smoothly lets users transition from "tablet" to "PC" mode on such devices like never before.
For the rest of the PC universe -- including those who still prefer good old-fashioned keyboard and mouse navigation -- Windows 10 is a welcome return to form. The Start menu, inexplicably yanked from 8, is back and working the way you expect it to. Those live tiles from the Windows 8 home screen still exist, but they've been attached to the Start menu, where they make a lot more sense. And the fiendishly hidden Charms bar has been morphed into the more straightforward (and easier to find) Action Center.
As always, there are some quibbles and gripes with the end product, but all-in-all -- after living with Windows 10 for months -- I can say it's a winner. It's flexible, adaptable and customizable. And it's been battle-tested by an army of beta testers for the better part of a year, making it one of the most robust operating system rollouts in recent memory.
A fresh Start
The Start menu is back; it's almost funny how relieving that is. That humble Start button has been a fixture on the lower left corner of the Windows desktop since the halcyon days of Windows 95, offering speedy access to apps and settings. Press it on Windows 10, and you'll see the latest step in a long conversation about the state of the PC industry.
The past sits on the left: a neat column with shortcuts to your most used apps. Press the "All Apps" button and you'll get an alphabetical list of all of the apps installed on your PC. There are folders in there too -- press them, and extra options will fly out, just like they always have.
The future -- or at least, the future as Microsoft envisions it -- sits on the right side of the Start menu. These are the colorful, animated live tiles that debuted in Windows 8, pulling double duty as app shortcuts and informative widgets. You can resize these live tiles, drag them about to arrange them into groups and pin as many apps as you'd like -- the entire Start menu can be shrunk or expanded to suit your liking. It's essentially a miniaturized version of the fullscreen Start menu we saw in Windows 8. Hate live tiles? Then unpin them to excise them from your computer, leaving you with the narrow column of frequently used apps we've known for so long.
