- Graphic Card(s)
After uniformly designed and therefore mostly closed fronts were popular in recent years, there has been a growing number of enclosures that use more open designs and thus promise a stronger airflow. These models also include the new Citadel Mesh RGB, which Kolink has placed as an attractive Micro-ATX case. A total of three 120 mm A-RGB fans shine through the front or through the glass side panel. The lighting is controlled either via a 5 V A RGB connection on the mainboard or conveniently via the remote control supplied.
The interior of the Citadel Mesh RGB not only promises enough space for a micro ATX mainboard and an ATX power supply, but also for tall tower coolers and long graphics cards. If necessary, water cooling with a 240mm radiator can also be used.
The cooling performance is accordingly significantly better than in comparable, closed housings. It is particularly positive that the A-RGB fans have PWM connections and can be easily controlled via a single PWM connection using the integrated PWM distributor. This is an exception in this price range. The fans are not whisper-quiet, but if you turn them down, the noise level will be completely unproblematic for most users.
Compared to a typical ATX case, Kolink's micro-ATX case saves a lot of space, but is still generous with a view of high tower coolers and long graphics cards. The three pre-assembled A-RGB fans shape the appearance of the housing - and the Citadel Mesh RGB is particularly user-friendly when it comes to lighting control. In addition to the LED button and control via a suitable mainboard, the supplied remote control can also be used. The glass side panel also provides convenience because it can be easily opened as a door.
INTEL Core i5-10600KF, clock frequency @ 4.80GHz, Socket 1200, code name Comet Lake-S, TDP 65W, cores 6, threads 12, base clock 4.10GHz, turbo clock 4.80GHz, SMT yes (Intel Hyper-Threading), memory controller Dual Channel PC4-21300U (DDR4- 2666), CPU functions Optane Memory Support, Turbo Boost 2.0, vPro, Hyper-Threading, VT-x, VT-d, VT-x EPT, Intel 64, SSE4.1, SSE4.2, AVX, AVX2, Idle States , EIST, Thermal Monitoring, IPT, SIPP, AES-NI, Secure Key, SGX, OS Guard, TXT, XD Bit, Boot Guard, L2-Cache 1.5MB (6x 256kB), L3-Cache 12MB.
"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 i5-10600KF 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.
SILENTIUMPC Spartan 4 Max Evo ARGB. SilentiumPC offers the Spartan 4 CPU cooler in four versions. RGB lighting is also reserved for certain versions. The Spartan 4 MAX is not only a bit bigger, but above all, it is more powerful. In addition, the number of heat pipes increases. In addition, the lamellar body and thus the height of the radiator grow to a still low 143 millimeters. At the same time, the fan is being replaced by a 120 mm version that can be operated between 250 and 1,500 rpm. This enables a TDP of 150 watts to be cooled.
Spartan 4 Max Evo ARGB is offered with an illuminated ARGB fan, in which each individual LED can be controlled separately. Not only the fan blades but also the fan frame are illuminated. The speed range remains the same compared to the non-illuminated fans of the standard models. The lighting can be controlled via a suitable mainboard or a suitable controller. If both are missing, an auto-LED function can at least start the rainbow effect.

MSI GeForce RTX 3060 Gaming X 12G, 12GB GDDR6, connections 1x HDMI 2.1, 3x DisplayPort 1.4a, GA106-300-A1 "Ampere", 28SM, 276mm², chip clock 1320MHz, Boost: 1837MHz, memory 12GB GDDR6, 1875MHz, 15Gbps (15000MHz effective), 192bit, 360GB / s, shader units / TMUs / ROPs 3584/112/64, cooling 2x axial fans (100mm), special features real-time ray tracing, ray tracing cores (28), tensor cores (112) , NVIDIA G-Sync, NVIDIA VR-Ready, AV1 Decode, HDCP 2.3, 0dB zero fan mode, backplate, LED lighting (RGB), overclocked boost clock (+ 60MHz), PCIe 4.0 x16 interface, computing power 13.17 TFLOPS (FP32), 206, GFLOPS (FP64) DirectX 12 Ultimate (12_2) OpenGL 4.6 OpenCL 2.0 Vulkan 1.2 Shader Model 6.5.
The GeForce RTX 3060 is the nominal successor to the GeForce RTX 2060 (Super). However, many of the older generations will certainly want to switch to amperes, so it is worth taking a look at the 3-4 year-old comparison models. According to the desired positioning below the GeForce RTX 3060 Ti, the GeForce RTX 3060 fits in very well.
The serial designation RTX 3060 may mislead potential buyers, as they expect a slightly stripped-down version of the RTX 3060 Ti. In fact, the RTX 3060 uses its own graphics chip. This card is a safe bet, especially at lower resolutions up to WQHD, because even if the gap to the GeForce RTX 3060 Ti is a bit more pronounced than expected. In some situations you will have to lift one or the other quality regulator in WQHD, but only if you need extremely high FPS numbers and the game does not support DLSS 2.0. Only in higher resolutions does it get a bit tighter, but NVIDIA doesn't advertise the card for the high resolutions either.
DLSS in particular has never been as valuable for this combat dwarf as it is today, because if you focus more on performance and dampen the other settings a bit and do without the DXR effects completely, you can even use Ultra HD in the appropriate games swim with the river. Otherwise, DLSS also allows DXR in Full HD, which was probably the intention.
The GeForce RTX 3060 is an inexpensive 1440p gaming card and it fulfills this requirement with flying colors. Even current titles are displayed with sufficient FPS (of course, depending on the selected resolution). If you need 144 Hz in FullHD, you will also be happy with a GeForce RTX 3060 in most games.

SAMSUNG SSD PM9A1 256GB, M.2, design Solid State Module (SSM), form factor M.2 2280, interface M.2 / M-Key (PCIe 4.0 x4), read 6400MB / s, write 2700MB / s SLC-Cached, IOPS 4K read / write 500k / 600k, memory modules 3D-NAND TLC, Samsung, 136 layers (V-NAND v6), reliability prognosis 1.5 million hours (MTBF) controller Samsung Elpis (S4LV003), 8 Channels, cache 512MB (LPDDR4), SLC cache, protocol NVMe 1.3c, data protection functions 256bit AES, TCG Opal 2.0, power consumption 0.035W (idle), 0.005W (sleep mode), special features L1.2 low-power standby.
The Samsung OEM SSD PM9A1 is made entirely of semiconductor components and uses NAND flash memory, which has high reliability and advanced technology in a small form factor. Thanks to the support of the Peripheral Component Interconnect Express (PCIe) 4.0 interface standard, performance is much faster than that of SATA SSDs. A comparison of the speed makes it clear that the PM9A1 version is definitely ahead. In contrast to the 6,000 MB / s, the two previous models only offered 3,500 MB / s. This is no wonder. After all, both OEMs were equipped with PCIe 3.0 and not the latest PCIe 4.0 standard.
The Samsung PM9A1 is an M.2 SSD with PCIe 4.0 and practically the OEM counterpart to the 980 Pro.

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.
