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.

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.

Thanks to the newly optimized 14 nm manufacturing process, the Core i7-10700 with Intel Turbo Boost Max Technology 3.0 offers a single-core max boost of 4.8 GHz, while all 8 cores (and 16 threads) are automatically increased to up to 4 , 6 GHz boost clock can be overclocked. Depending on the type of application, the Core i7-10700 always achieves optimal performance thanks to the automatic boost clock.
With the Intel Socket LGA 1200, the 10th generation of Intel Core processors has a socket for mounting on the mainboard. This means that the processor is only compatible with Intel mainboards with the LGA 1200 socket. Even if the number of pins increases to 1200, the dimensions of the socket and the ILM (Independent Loading Mechanism) remain identical to the socket 1151/1155. This means that the corresponding CPU cooler can still be used without the need for a conversion kit.

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.

Nvidia has let the rumour mill boil. Now the guessing is finally over. "Super" – similar to Ti – are drilled versions of the already known RTX cards. But how super is the new RTX 2060 Super really?
Thanks to retreading, the GeForce RTX 2060 Super comes close to the performance of a standard RTX 2070, but the price is lower. And compared to the normal RTX 2060, the super version delivers exactly 11 percent more power. That's really super! Thus, the original entry-level class transforms into a serious player in the middle class. The larger memory and higher clock rate allow smooth game play in 4K and WQHD at full details.
While Raytracing on the old RTX 2060 was rather pro forma on board, the 2060 SUPER uses the technology for softer shadows and lighting effects much better thanks to the upgrade. This gets 34 Raytracing cores, so four valuable units more than the previous RTX 2060 and two less than the GeForce RTX 2070. By means of ray tracing, moving light sources such as sunbeams or lightnings can be displayed in different strengths and with reflections. Likewise, Nvidia has increased the number of tensor cores from 240 to 272 units. These are responsible for anti-aliasing via Deep Learning Super Sampling (DLSS), which improves the previous anti-aliasing. For example, aliasing is applied to geometric objects. Bonus: The DLSS technique works much more resource efficient than anti-aliasing.
That's the technical side of the SUPER GPUs, but how do the upgrades affect performance?
With Full HD games (1920x1080 pixels) Nvidia was able to increase the tempo by 10 percent. But that's not so relevant, because the normal RTX 2060 anyway did not stumble on Full HD. Interesting is the tempo boost in WQHD titles (2560x1440 pixels): It reaches even 14 percent additionally - that's in fact super. For comparison: The old "Pascal" chip GeForce GTX 1070 Ti can no longer keep up. And in 4K games, the tempo advantage of the RTX 2060 Super compared to the normal RTX 2060 is 9 percent. Great: So you can use the RTX 2060 SUPER even in combination with inexpensive processors such as the Ryzen 7 2700x and 16 gigabytes of RAM for gambling in 4K.

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.
