The Corsair Einbaurahmen 2.5 “in 3.5” für SSD and HDD (Corsair SSD Mounting Bracket, manufacturer no.: CSSD-BRKT1) is a adapter for 2.5 “SSD and other drives for installation in the 3.5″ bay of the computer. The thing is very popular, because the vast majority of manufacturers of solid-state drives do not complete their drives with such adapters, and many stationary cases simply do not have compartments for 2.5” drives.
Solid State Drive Intenso TOP SSD 128GB is suitable as a system disk for users building a very budget computer, however, because of the large number of defective pcs and failed disks during its work, the buyer should weigh the pros and cons before buying.
This SSD attracts buyers all around the world because of its incredibly low price of € 19.90, as well because of MLC memory used in it. The read and write speed for such a cost is can be considered as good: 520 MB / s and 300 MB / s.
G.Skill Ripjaws V 16GB DDR4 K2 3200 C14 16GVK [F4-3200C14D-16GVK] – a kit of memory units from G.Skill for enthusiasts, which differs from its counterparts thanks to low timings (CL14 – 14-14-14-34) and amazing capabilities for overclocking up to 4000 Mhz. There is no G.Skill Ripjaws V 16GB DDR4 K2 3200 C14 16GVK [F4-3200C14D-16GVK] set in Russia, for the same price our computer discounters offer to buy memory with CL16-18 latency, but in Germany kit is quiet popular and not deficient.
The advantages of G.Skill Ripjaws V 16GB DDR4 K2 3200 C14 16GVK is high performance, excellent compatibility, compact size, stylish radiators, and if you buy on computeruniverse, then also a low price.
RAIJINTEK Morpheus II Heatpipe VGA Kühler is a heatsink for video cards of the middle and top price segment, designed for cooling power up to 360 W TDP (Maximum power dissipation, W). Morpheus comes with 12 copper heat pipes, 129 fins, a mirrored copper base and has the possibility of installing 2 * 120 mm fans.
This is a universal cooler that is compatible with a large number of devices, including GeForce GTX 1080 Ti and Radeon R9 390x, R9 Fury. Its name is Morpheus II. According to buyer reviews, the RAIJINTEK Morpheus II Heatpipe VGA Kühler [0R100006] is much expensive (considering that you still must to buy fans for it), but not so efficient as liquid cooling systems. However, in some cases, the RAIJINTEK Morpheus II Heatpipe VGA Kühler may become a lifesaver when the stock fan of a video card fails, and it also shows better results – several degrees Celsius lower than the native cooling systems of video cards.
The purchase was made by us on January 8, and collected and sent by the store computeruniverse very fast – in three days. We recieved the parcel already in 10 days (From Germany, Friedberg to Russia, Vladimir Region). Total, from the moment of payment until we received the parcel 13 days passed. Three people from three different cities took part in this order. The order list this time was not been with a variety of goods and consisted of two low-end processors from Intel, a gaming “almost-top” MSI MPG Z390 GAMING PRO CARBON motherboard and a good of memory units from G.Skill, created for AMD Ryzen 7 systems.
List of products of the second January joint purchase from computeruniverse 2019:
Intel Pentium G4560 2 core (Dual Core) CPU with 3.50 GHz, Yes; 62,94 €; 0.275kg;
Intel Core i3-8100 Coffee Lake Tray Sockel 1151-v2; 0.383kg; 99,92 €
G.Skill FlareX Black 16GB DDR4 Kit 3200 CL14 (2x 8GB Module); 0.13 kg; 167,98 €
MSI MPG Z390 GAMING PRO CARBON; 1.84kg; € 157.90
The prices on the Russian site may be differ from computeruniverse.net for European buyers.
The MSI MPG Z390 Gaming Pro Carbon motherboard [7B17-012R] belongs to the MSI Performance GAMING series, is not far from the top solutions: with this motherboard you can build a powerful PC that can handle both modern games or serious work, such as video processing and 3D graphics.
It has a strict stylish design: the motherboard textolite is painted black, but some of the heatsinks are in contrasting white. The bends of the device resemble sports car bodies.
The motherboard has a powerful Intel Z390 chipset, focused primarily on Intel 9th generation processors with great overclocking support.
The board is equipped with a large number of modern interfaces and expansion slots, some of them: 3 x PCI 3.0 Sli, Cross; 3x USB 3.1 Gen2; 6 x SATA, 2 slots for fast SSD of M.2 format. You can install 4 x DDR4 memory units up to 64 GB with a maximum speed of up to 4400 MHz. Memory slots are additionally shielded.
We should also note the sound based on Realtek ALC1220P-VB2. Microphone noises, echo, and other artifacts that interfere with normal communication – all this does not threaten the owners of the motherboard from MSI.
Another argument in favor of buying MSI MPG Z390 Gaming Pro Carbon for gamers is supporting of the MYSTIC LIGHT synchronized backlight system, all devices compatible with the MYSTIC LIGHT will glow in the same color.
MSI managed to create not only a functional, but also the most reliable motherboard. MSI STEEL ARMOR technology protects the slots for video cards and RAM from interference, deformation and high voltage. Overcurrent protection is achieved through enhanced soldering and earthing points on the RAMe and PCIe 3.0 x16 slots. In the production of the motherboard used solid-state Japanese capacitors SOLID CAP with a service life of up to 10 years and Titanium Choke chokes, which allow the device to work on high temperatures better than conventional components.
The choice of the motherboard for AMD processors should be treated with special attention. But what about the memory? In order to avoid compatibility problems, a special series of G.Skill FlareX Black 16GB DDR4 Kit 3200 CL14 (2x 8GB Module) memory bars [F4-3200C14D-16GFX] appeared on the market, which will help the buyer to launch the entire AMD-based system instantly!
G.Skill FlareX Black 16GB DDR4 Kit 3200 CL14 (2x 8GB Module) [F4-3200C14D-16GFX] operates at 3.200 MHz with CL14 timings, with a voltage of only 1.35 V for operation at such a high frequency. High frequency is achieved through the use of chips Samsung B-Die, which have long proved themselves not only as reliable chips, but also as an excellent memory for overclocking.
The first January joint order we have made on computeruniverse on January 5th and already on January 9th it was sent by the store via the German Post. The parcel reached us in 8 days (Russia, Central Region).
Participants chose goods with a total weight of 3 kilograms in the amount of 446 euros, paying for a joint delivery of € 23 of € 37.43 (€ 14 compensated by our joint order’s project). Three are processors from Intel in the OEM version (Intel Pentium G4560, Intel Core i3-8100 “Coffee Lake” Tray Sockel 1151-v2), two packs of Lavazza Espresso Perfetto aromatic coffee and a top-end RAM memory kit RGB 16GB DDR4 16GTZR Kit 3200MHz CL14 (2x8GB).

Intel Pentium G4560 tray [BX80677G4560] with Hyper-Threading support may be interesting not only for installation in office and work PCs, but also for creating decent budget gaming and multimedia systems.
The dual-core four-threaded processor has a fairly high clock speed of 3,500 MHz, L3 cache — 3 MB, support up to 64 GB of RAM in dual channel mode, support ECC memory and frequencies up to 2400 MHz. In fact, it is slightly trimmed versions of Core i3, with slightly lower frequencies and a cache, lack of AVX instructions (that help to solve multimedia tasks). The main argument in favor of buying it is a much lower price than Core i3.
Power of Intel Pentium G4560 will be enough to run the games of 2016-2017 at the minimum and medium settings in 30 FPS: Mafia III (medium), Dishonored 2 (medium settings), Battlefield 4 (ultra, except for scaling the resolution), CS: GO (ultra), DotA 2 (ultra), World of Tanks (ultra), Fallout 4 (ultra), GTA 5 (high), Evolve (ultra), Mortal Kombat X (ultra), DOOM (ultra) and so on.
The processor is not suitable for use with video cards of the top segment (such as 1080 Ti), but it will perfectly reveal the potential of low price cards (1050 Ti, RX 580).
One of the main advantages of the “stone” is its energy efficiency – this “low-power” CPU consumes almost nothing and has a low heat dissipation of 54 W. With a good cooler, the processor will work with a temperature of 40-50 degrees, even working under load.
If we talk about everyday multimedia tasks, the Intel HD Graphics 610 GPU will be enough, right up to run 4K / 60 HZ video from YouTube.
The processor will be an excellent option for assembling a family PC or children’s leisure / study. But in no case should it be considered as the “heart” of a computer intended for creating media content. Video editing and 3D modeling programs will be very slow.

Core i3-8100 – Intel’s budget quad-core processor from the Coffee Lake family. In contrast to the “stones” of the previous generation Kaby Lake, it operates at lower base frequencies, but it has a larger number of cores. By performance, the processor is practically not inferior to its Core i5 counterparts from the previous Kaby Lake generation, but it is sold for a lower price.
There is no Turbo Boost technology in the Core i3-8100, which means that the chip operates at a constant frequency regardless of how many cores are active at current moment. The processor is worse than the Core i3-7100 when lightly loaded, however, thanks to the four physical cores, there is a noticeable performance increase in heavy distributed loads, where the advantage will be on the side of Core i3-8100.
A larger number of cores use more electricity, so the TDP of i3-8100 is 65 W, as opposed to the 51 W consumption of Core i3-7100.
The processor Core i3-8100 demonstrates surprisingly balanced performance characteristics, especially given its retail price. But due to its mass character and popularity, after two years of selling it did not become cheaper.
You can buy Intel Core i3-8100 “Coffee Lake” 4 core (Quad Core) CPU with 3.60 GHz for the price 116,90 €. Don’t forget to use discount coupon FWNNROU (How to use it?).
