They have a model up to 360 millimeters in size in the front and up to 120 millimeters in size on the back.
Tempered glass and addressable RGB lighting:
In order to provide a good insight into the built-in hardware, the Horizon housing has a large, tool-free removable side panel made of tinted tempered glass and another on the front of the housing. Lateral ventilation slots still ensure good airflow. The four pre-installed 120 millimeter fans are equipped with double-sided dispersion rings for the digitally addressable RGB LEDs. As a result, they radiate both outwards and inside the housing. You are connected to an RGB controller hub.
With the included remote control, nine different RGB lighting effects can be set. Alternatively, the housing also has a button on the front panel. This also offers a connection repertoire consisting of two USB 3.0 ports and a USB 2.0 connection as well as the mandatory audio connections. A total of three 2.5-inch drives can be mounted on the mainboard tray and the PSU cover. There are two tool-free drive slides under the power supply cover, which can accommodate two 3.5-inch drives.
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.
Cooler Masters MasterAir G100M is not just a flat top blow cooler for SFF systems. No, the UFO cooler with integrated RGB lighting is also an eye-catcher. And thanks to the massive heat column in the center, it is also interesting from a technical point of view. A new structure with a central heat column should deliver the decisive increase in performance. This means that the MasterAir G100M can be used on processors with a TDP of up to 130 watts. It is very clear, however, that the MasterAir G100M is also about optics. The completely circular cooler is strongly reminiscent of a UFO. It looks even more spacey when the integrated RGB lighting is activated.
Once again, Cooler Masters RGB lighting is very convincing. This is not only due to the successful integration of the RGB LEDs, but also to the control options. Cooler Master gives the user the choice: he can either control the lighting directly via the included controller. Or he uses the RGB software from one of the major mainboard manufacturers.
Aspects of the Cooler Master MasterAir G100M:
Effective RGB lighting, controllable via the included controller or the RGB software from various mainboard manufacturers
low overall height, so it can also be used for SFF systems
discreet volume at reduced speed

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.
