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.
AMD Ryzen 5 3600 @ 4.20GHz, socket AM4, codename Matisse, cores 6, threads 12, base clock 3.60GHz, turbo clock 4.20GHz, memory controller dual channel PC4-25600U (DDR4-3200), CPU features ECC support, Turbo Core 3.0, Precision Boost 2, Precision Boost Overdrive, SMT, VT-Vi, X86-64, AMD-V, AVX, AVX2, AES (2x FMA), NX-Bit, EVP, PCIe 4.0 (only X570), multiplier freely selectable , Architecture Zen 2, L2 cache 3MB (6x 512kB), L3 cache 32MB (2x 16MB), memory max.128GB, memory bandwidth 51.2GB / s.
The AMD Ryzen 5 2600X and the smaller Ryzen 5 2600 were sometimes the most successful model variants of the second Ryzen generation and have since been given a successor. Both the AMD Ryzen 5 3600X and the Ryzen 5 3600 should build on the successes of their predecessors.
Overall, the Non-X version has a lot in common with its big brother, but compared to the previous generation, the Ryzen 5 3600 revs up a lot and grows in almost every respect. The single-core performance climbs by almost 15%, and when all six cores are loaded, it is even a good 20% more than the Ryzen 5 2600. In addition, AMD has managed to increase efficiency because the new generation shows up in the comparison of generations Mid-range model about 16% more economical. This is mainly due to the new 7 nm technology and, of course, the improvements in the Zen architecture.
Overall, we attested the six-core game to a significantly higher gaming performance at a lower price, whereby in some cases even one or the other top model from past generations was beaten.
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.

The main board was kept in a dark design with a few color elements and therefore fits in almost every case in terms of color. Despite the low price, MSI does not do without RGB lighting on this motherboard. This can be set in 16.8 million color tones and a total of ten light effects via the software on the PC or via the app on a tablet or smartphone. One effect, for example, shows the current CPU temperature using different colors. Thanks to the Mystic Light Sync function, the RGB lighting can also be synchronized with other compatible products to create a uniform look. The lighting can also be switched off at any time for a subtle design.
The PCIe slot is reinforced with metal, which means that the mainboard can withstand the heavy weight of high-end graphics cards. MSI remains true to the previous BIOS optics with the B450 Tomahawk. There are various options for inexperienced users to get the best possible out of the components. For example, the RAM can be overclocked using the A-XMP profile, which worked without any problems in the test.
The MSI B450 Tomahawk is a very good B450 motherboard at a fair price. The user gets a generous amount of equipment with a solid performance. In terms of performance, the mainboard is roughly on par with the much more expensive X470 mainboards. As a little extra, adjustable RGB lighting is also offered.
ZOTAC Gaming GeForce RTX 3070 Twin Edge OC LHR, 8GB GDDR6, connections 1x HDMI 2.1, 3x DisplayPort 1.4a, chip GA104-302-A1 "Ampere", 46SM, 392mm², chip clock 1500MHz, boost: 1755MHz, memory 8GB GDDR6, 1750MHz, 14Gbps (14000MHz effective), 256bit, 448GB / s, shader units / TMUs / ROPs 5888/184/96, cooling 2x axial fans (90mm) Special features realtime raytracing, raytracing cores (46), tensor cores (184), NVIDIA G-Sync, NVIDIA VR-Ready, AV1 decode, HDCP 2.3, 0dB -Zero fan mode, backplate, boost clock overclocked (+ 30MHz), interface PCIe 4.0 x16, computing power 20.67 TFLOPS (FP32), 323 GFLOPS (FP64) DirectX 12 Ultimate (12_2) OpenGL 4.6 OpenCL 3.0 Vulkan 1.2 Shader model 6.6 .
The Zotac RTX 3070 impresses with two 90 mm fans and low noise emissions under load and silence when idling. Two 90mm fans don't seem much at first, but the graphics chip is satisfied with a maximum of 220 watts of power consumption, which means that there is significantly less waste heat than with its bigger siblings RTX 3080 and RTX 3090.
The RTX 3070 convinces in all our tests for gaming in FullHD and WQHD resolution with very high frame rates and demanding detail settings. In the synthetic benchmarks in 3DMark, the performance of the Zotac Gaming GeForce RTX 3070 Twin Edge is exactly as one would expect. It fits well behind the RTX 3080 and the RTX 3090: It is just as Nvidia intended in its product lineup. So no big surprise, the graphics card does well in all benchmarks, whether Timespy, VR-Mark or Port Royale, and leaves the last generation far behind.
In terms of pure gaming performance, the Zotac graphics cards deliver very good values. It comes much closer to the RTX 3080 than Nvidia would probably like. Fortnite looks fantastic in ray tracing mode on the map, but continues to eat up massive amounts of resources. We played the shooter at around 125 frames per second in Full HD with all graphics options at the limit. If we also activated ray tracing (again, everything at the stop), the number fell to an average of 55 fps. But that was enough for smooth gaming with really impressive ray tracing graphics.
This is a high result, which indicates constant playability. Rise of the Tomb Raider returns an average of 93fps for the 4K resolution - an impressive result, because here you can even see reserves. Deus Ex also delivers an average of 4K 63fps and is convincing.

As we get requests concerning the proper sizes of power supplies very often, we want to give you some information here, so that you can get an idea of this topic:
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.
