Tempered Glass Side Panel and Front & Four Pre-Installed RGB Fans
The robust chassis consists of one millimetre strong SECC steel and is equipped with a four millimetre thick tempered glass side panel and front. The interior interior has a black coating and is also kitted out with a shroud for the power supply to ensure an incredible clean look. There is also a hard drive cage with brackets for two 3,5- or 2,5-" drives.
The visual highlights of the case include three 120 mm fans pre-installed in the front and an additional fan in the back. The fans come with 16 individually addressable RGB-LEDs. Their lighting can be controlled by the bundled RGB controller and fan hub which can be placed in a location of your choosing as well as the infrared remote control. This allows you to choose from over 300 dynamic lighting effects! Two further 120 mm fans can be mounted in the top.
Dust Filters Keep the Kolink Observatory Clean
The motherboard tray and the power supply shroud offer numerous cable openings. A 240 mm radiator can be installed in the front and the top of the Observatory case. The case's air vents come equipped with fine dust filters that are located in the top and underside of the case. These can be removed without the need for tools and even come complete with a smart honeycomb design.
Graphics cards up to 38 cm long and CPU coolers up to 16 cm high are compatible. Furthermore the I/O panel located on the front also comes with two further USB 2.0 connectors as well as a USB 3.0 Type A port. There is also a slot for a USB type C connection, but this is not included in the case and must be retrofitted separately. The same applies to a switch for controlling the RGB lighting on the I/O panel.

"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.

KFA2 GeForce GTX 1660 Super EX (1-Click OC), 192-bit, 1x DVI ports, 1x HDMI 2.0b, 1x DisplayPort 1.4a, TU116-300-A1 chip "Turing", chip clock 1530MHz, Boost: 1830MHz (OC Mode ) Memory 6GB GDDR6, 14GHz, 192bit, 336GB / s, shader units / TMUs / ROPs 1408/88/48, cooling 2x axial fan (90mm), special features H.265 encode / decode, NVIDIA G - Sync, NVIDIA VR-Ready, Backplate, LED Lighting (RGB), HDCP 2.2, Boost Clock Overclocked (+ 45MHz), PCIe 3.0 x16 Interface, 5153GFLOPS (Single), 161GFLOPS (Double), DirectX 12.1, OpenGL 4.6 , OpenCL 2.0, Vulkan 1.1.103, Shader Model 6.3.
Already the Geforce GTX 1660 and 1660 Ti were cheap gaming graphics cards for users who do not require raytracing. With the Geforce GTX 1660 Super Nvidia wants to fill the gap between the two models. Thanks to the very fast memory of the KFA2, the card is in games partially above the Geforce GTX 1660 TI.
The GeForce GTX 1660 Super in reference design lands exactly where it should land: well ahead of the GeForce GTX 1660 and just behind the GeForce GTX 1660 Ti. Works the latest super product according to Nvidia's reference specifications, delivers the graphics card in Full HD 11 percent more FPS than the GeForce GTX 1660, while the GeForce GTX 1660 Ti is 2 percent faster.
Thus, the GeForce GTX 1660 Super is 16 percent faster than the Radeon RX 590 - and even if the Radeon RX 5500 announced for November 2019 has not yet arrived in the trade, it is already clear that the small Navi offshoot is probably with the GeForce GTX 1660 will create, but not with the GeForce GTX 1660 Super. As with GeForce RTX 2060 Super and 2070 Super Nvidia has taken care of here, too.
The overclocking potential of the KFA2 GeForce GTX 1660 Super is not big, but some additional power - around 6% - can be gotten out of the graphics card. In that case, the performance of the GeForce GTX 1660 Ti will be over.

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.
