Furthermore, the chic case can accommodate graphics cards up to 345 millimeters long and CPU coolers up to 155 millimeters high and has dust-free dust filters in the lid and base for dust protection.

Up to six 120 mm fans can be installed to effectively cool the hardware. Four copies with addressable RGB lighting are already installed in the front and back, while two more can be accommodated in the lid. Radiators can also be used to cool the hardware. 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.

Processor

Intel Core i7-10700K, clock frequency @ 5.1GHz, socket 1200, code name Comet Lake-S, cores 8, threads 16, base clock 3.80GHz, turbo clock 5.10GHz, memory controller Dual Channel PC4-23466U (DDR4-2933), CPU features Optane Memory Support, Turbo Boost Max 3.0 (5.10GHz), Turbo Boost 2.0, vPro, SMT (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, TDP-down (95W), TDP-down frequency (3.50GHz) , Multiplier freely selectable, L2 cache 2MB (8x 256kB), L3 cache 16MB, chipset interface DMI 3.0, 8GT / s (PCIe 3.0 x4), PCIe lanes 16x (PCIe 3.0), memory max. 128GB, memory bandwidth 45.8GB / s.

With the new Comet Lake generation, Intel is entering the tenth round of Core i processors. The most important changes to the new processors include new options for Turbo Boost Max Technology 3.0 (TBMT), i.e. the automatic overclocking of the CPUs. With the new Thermal Velocity Boost (TVB), Intel determines the two best cores of a CPU and gives them an extra boost to the maximum boost clock. In other words, Intel simply tickles more performance from the CPUs through improved boost rates and higher clock rates.

The Core i7-10700K has eight cores and 16 threads and now offers Hyper-Threading again compared to the Core i7-9700K of the previous generation. In principle, the Core i7-10700K is now what the Core i9-9900K was before.

Once again, Intel means more evolution than revolution. Intel has made a few improvements here and there that also lead to more performance, but these do not relate to the architecture of the CPU, but to all other aspects that affect performance. In particular, the increase in the TDP to 125 watts and the improvement in the cooling of the CPUs are worth mentioning. In the end, these two points enable more boost, thus more clock and therefore more performance.

CPU-Cooling

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.

The MSI MPG Z490 Gaming Plus is equipped with the high-end chipset for the Intel Core processors of the 10th generation and allows manual overclocking of CPUs with a free multiplier. Since the "Comet Lake-S" processors require a new socket due to the optimized power supply, the Intel series LGA1200 is used on the 400 series mainboards. Despite the increased number of pins, the actual size of the socket remains the same with older sockets, so that CPU coolers for socket LGA 115x can also be mounted on the mainboard.

The MSI MPG Z490 Gaming Plus is a motherboard in the ATX form factor and offers two PCIe x16 slots, one of which is connected to the CPU with 16 lanes and one to the chipset with four lanes, as well as two PCIe x1 slots for plug-in and expansion cards. The MSI MPG Z490 Gaming Plus also supports multi-GPU setups via AMD Crossfire / XDMA.

Other features of the mainboard also include a striking cooler design and integrated RGB LED lighting. Additional RGB LED components can be connected and controlled via a 4-pin RGB header (12V) and two digitally addressable 3-pin RGB headers (5V), provided they are compatible with the RGB software of the mainboard.

Up to 128 GB DDR4 RAM in dual-channel mode can be used in the four DIMM slots. The Z490 chipset supports clock rates up to 2,933 MHz, but the OC enables the MSI MPG Z490 Gaming Plus to operate RAM kits with up to 4,800 MHz!

Two M.2 slots and six SATA 6G connectors are available for connecting drives. The M.2 slots support the NVMe protocol, which enables data transfer rates of just under 4 GB / s. This means that M.2 PCIe SSDs are up to eight times faster than SATA 6G SSDs!

The MSI MPG Z490 Gaming Plus has a USB 3.1 port on the I / O panel. Type-C socket is particularly thin and plugs can be inserted on both sides. USB 3.1 (USB 3.2 Gen. 2) achieves high transmission speeds of up to 10 Gbit / s.
In addition to a USB 3.1 port and two USB 3.0 type A ports, the board also offers two USB 2.0 ports and a classic PS / 2 port for mouse or keyboard. In addition, an HDMI and a display port connection are provided as signal outputs for the integrated graphics unit of the processor. The MSI MPG Z490 Gaming Plus offers fast 2.5 Gigabit LAN (Realtek 8125B) for wired networks.

When it comes to audio, the manufacturer relies on the Realtek ALC1200 audio codec. This provides a total of five 3.5 millimeter jack sockets and an optical S / PDIF output on the I / O panel and supports 7.1 surround sound. Internally, the mainboard provides a large selection of connections and headers.

The MSI MPG Z490 Gaming Plus offers a total of eight 4-pin PWM connections for fans and / or pumps on the main board. For the power supply there is a 24-pin ATX connector as well as an 8-pin and a 4-pin connector on the mainboard. Overclockers are also pleased with the extensive power supply with 12 + 1 + 1 phases, which is equipped with large-area heat sinks.

The large expansion slot for the graphics card is reinforced to counteract wear and tear under frequent use, for example when the mainboard is used in test systems and benchtables. The color of the board design is dominated by black, so that illuminated components come to the fore.

Software

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.
