Hardware and cooling options in the Kolink Horizon Midi-Tower:
The Kolink Horizon Midi-Tower offers plenty of space for high-performance gaming hardware. The mainboard tray, which is equipped with a practical cut-out for easy cooler replacement, can accommodate motherboards in mini-ITX, micro-ATX and ATX form factors. 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. 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.
INTEL Core i5-10600, clock frequency @ 4.80GHz, Socket 1200, code name Comet Lake-S, TDP 65W, cores 6, threads 12, base clock 3.30GHz, turbo clock 4.80GHz, SMT yes (Intel Hyper-Threading), memory controller Dual Channel PC4-21300U (DDR4- 2666), CPU functions Optane Memory Support, Turbo Boost 2.0, vPro, 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, L2-Cache 1.5MB (6x 256kB), L3-Cache 12MB.
"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.
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

The Gigabyte Z490 UD is equipped with the high-end chipset for the Intel Core processors of the 10th generation and allows the 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 Socket LGA1200 is used on the 400 series motherboards. Despite the increased number of pins, the actual size of the socket remains identical to older sockets, so that CPU coolers for LGA 115x sockets can also be mounted on the mainboard.
The features of the Gigabyte Z490 UD motherboard at a glance:
2x PCIe (3.0) x16 (16/4) & 3x PCIe x1
1x USB 3.1 type A
A total of 7x USB 3.0 and 4x USB 2.0 (internal & external)
2x M.2 (PCIe 3.0 x4 / SATA) / 6x SATA 6G
Supports max. 128 GB DDR4 RAM up to 4,500 MHz
The Gigabyte Z490 UD in detail
The Gigabyte Z490 UD motherboard in the ATX form factor offers two PCIe x16 slots and three PCIe x1 slots for plug-in and expansion cards. As a high-end mainboard, the Gigabyte Z490 UD also supports multi-GPU setups via AMD Crossfire / XDMA. The other features of the mainboard also include a striking cooler design.
Up to 128 GB DDR4 memory in dual-channel mode can be used in the four DIMM slots. The Z490 chipset supports clock rates of up to 2,933 MHz by default, but the Gigabyte Z490 UD enables the operation of RAM kits with up to 4,500 MHz via OC! Two M.2 slots for PCIe / SATA M.2 SSDs and six SATA 6G ports enable storage drives to be connected. The M.2 slots are connected to the chipset with four PCIe lanes and support the NVMe protocol, which enables data transfer rates of almost 4 GB / s. M.2 PCIe SSDs are up to eight times faster than SATA 6G SSDs!
The Gigabyte Z490 UD has a USB 3.1 port of type A as well as four USB 3.0 ports and an HDMI connection on the I / O panel. Internally, the mainboard provides a large selection of connections and headers.

MSI Radeon RX 6700 XT Gaming X 12G, 12GB GDDR6, connections 1x HDMI 2.1, 3x DisplayPort 1.4a, Chip Navi 22 XT "RDNA 2", 40CU, 335mm², memory 12GB GDDR6, 2000MHz, 16Gbps (16000MHz effective), 192bit, 384GB / s, shader units / TMUs / ROPs 2560/160/64, cooling 2x axial fans (100mm), special features real-time ray tracing, AMD Infinity Cache (64MB), HDCP 2.3, AMD FreeSync, AMD TrueAudio Next, AMD Eyefinity, AV1 Decode, 0dB-Zero-Fan-Modus, backplate, LED lighting (RGB), incl. Graphics card holder, interface PCIe 4.0 x16 DirectX 12 Ultimate (12_2) OpenGL 4.6 OpenCL 2.1 Vulkan 1.2 Shader model 6.5.
The Radeon RX 6700 XT is now the fourth desktop graphics card from AMD with the new RDNA2 architecture. The RX 6800, 6800 XT and 6900 XT use an adapted Navi 21 GPU, while the new RX 6700 XT uses a Navi 22 XT graphics chip and 2650 stream processors (shader units), which play an important role in the performance potential .
The big brothers have 3840, 4608 and 5120. But the clock rate of the RX 6700 XT is comparatively high, so in the end it is not surprising that although this does not compensate for the disadvantage of the stream processors, AMD's new graphics card is close to Nvidia's RTX 3070 and therefore also close to the RX 6800. Of course, you have to keep in mind that AMD's specifications are optimized examples and that games were also used that Nvidia bolides don't do that well. However, it would not be surprising if the performance of the Radeon RX 6700 XT was actually, as AMD claims, above the Nvidia GeForce RTX 3060 Ti and close to the GeForce RTX 3070. One advantage of the AMD Radeon RX 6700 XT is the 12GB RAM - that's 4GB less than the more powerful AMD 6000 models, but also 4GB more than the Nvidia GeForce RTX 3060 Ti and RTX 3070.

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.
