With its striking front, the Midi-Tower Nimbus from Kolink stands out clearly. An RGB LED strip surrounds a large recess in the front, which significantly increases the airflow of the housing. The well-cooled hardware inside the case can be admired through the tempered glass side panel. Despite the solid side panel, the Kolink Nimbus only weighs 4.58 kilograms. The housing, which is designed for good airflow, can accommodate motherboards up to an ATX form factor, graphics cards can be up to 325 mm long - enough space for powerful gaming hardware.
Tempered glass side panel & a pre-installed fan
The solid chassis consists of one millimeter thick SECC steel and is equipped with a four millimeter thick tempered glass side part and a front made of plastic with an aluminum look. A huge recess, surrounded by a digitally addressable RGB LED strip, ensures an optimized airflow, the magnetic dust filter behind it keeps the inside of the housing clean.
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. There are two additional slots for 2.5-inch drives on the back of the mainboard tray.
Dust filters keep the Kolink Nimbus clean
In order to ensure ventilation of the hardware installed in the housing, one of six possible 120 mm fans, also in black, is already included in the housing and installed on the back. On the front, a total of three 120 mm fans have space under the lid, and two further 120 mm fans can be installed. Two 140 mm fans can also be installed at the front.
A 240 mm radiator can be placed in the front and on the lid of the Castle housing. The mainboard tray and the cover of the power supply offer numerous openings for sophisticated cable management. Vents with fine dust filters are located in the lid and on the underside of the housing. They are magnetic and reinforced with a delicate honeycomb pattern.
Graphics cards can be up to 32.5 centimeters long and CPU coolers up to 16 centimeters high. In addition, the I / O panel placed on the front has a USB 3.0 Type-A port in addition to two USB 2.0 ports. There is also a switch for controlling the RGB lighting.

AMD Ryzen 5 5600X @ 4,60 GHz, Socket AM4, code name Vermeer, cores 6, threads 12, base clock 3.70GHz, turbo clock 4.60GHz, SMT yes, memory controller dual channel PC4-25600U (DDR4-3200), free multiplier yes, CPU functions MMX (+ ), SSE, SSE2, SSE3, SSE4.1, SSE4.2, SSE4A, x86-64, AMD-V, AES, AVX, AVX2, FMA3, SHA Architecture Zen 3, L2 cache 3MB (6x 512kB), L3 cache 32MB (1x 32MB), chipset interface PCIe 4.0 x4, PCIe lanes 24x PCIe 4.0 (16 + 4 + 4), memory max. 128GB Memory bandwidth 51.2GB / s.
AMD offers the Ryzen 5600X processor, which is particularly interesting for gamers, below the two top models. This is due to the fact that many games still cannot handle more than eight cores, at least not noticeably.
Intel's Core i9-10900K is already sweating in the face of the smallest Zen 3 processor available to date. Even in the multicore-optimized Battlefield 5, the 5600X manages to outperform the competition. Anno 1800 is once again interesting in many ways. So far, only players with an Intel CPU could think of conjuring up larger cities smoothly on the screen. Now it's all the better with a Ryzen 5600X. The eight-core Ryzen 7 5800X shines here with a perfect connection to the L3 cache and can fully exploit its strengths and just behind it the Ryzen 5 5600X sneaks in front of the top models.
With Total War, Death Stranding and SOTTR, there are only three games in the test in which a Core i9-10900K can still assert itself. Intel then sees no more land against AMD's new eight-core, the 5800X trumps all Intel CPUs. Exceptions are games that scale very well with cores, for example the great Red Dead Redemption 2 or Battlefield 5.
The Hexacore Ryzen 5 5600X is used by those who "only" play and still do not want to forego the very high Zen 3 performance.

Sapphire promises higher performance in the Pulse version, paired with more efficient cooling. It is therefore based on the upper performance range for this model. Cooling, production, choice of materials and additional functions should help to set yourself apart from the competition.
In the case of the Sapphire Radeon RX 6700 XT Pulse, there are a few important points to note. There is the performance, which is higher than that of the reference version.
The owner of the Sapphire Radeon RX 6700 XT Pulse can take some steam out via the BIOS switch, but we would rather recommend this for cards that are quite loud when pushed to the limit - and this is not the case here. That brings us straight to the next topic: cooling. The Sapphire Radeon RX 6700 XT Pulse can convince here compared to the reference version. Lower temperatures are offered and the two axial fans do their work much more quietly. With the measured 34.8 dB (A), many a CPU cooler or case fan should be louder than the card itself. The Sapphire Radeon RX 6700 XT can collect a big plus here.
The Radeon RX 6700 XT is very suitable for playing modern AAA games in 2,560 × 1,440 (WQHD) with maximum details. 3840 × 2160 is also possible with mostly reduced details, but the performance reserves are quite low for Ultra HD. The smaller "Infinity Cache" also slows down slightly in the high resolution, but primarily the GPU lacks raw performance for so many pixels.
The memory equipment of the graphics card is commendable, because 12 GB is exactly the right capacity that a performance model should currently have. That is enough VRAM for future games and even nowadays an advantage with ray tracing - here models with only 8 GB get into trouble every now and then. The energy efficiency is just as positive. The Radeon RX 6700 XT makes a decent step in FPS per watt compared to its predecessor.

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.
