The sixth March purchase on computeruniverse.net was paid on March 6 and shipped on March 11. A package from Germany reached our center of joint orders in just 8 days.

The order did not differ in its diversity; there were only four products in its composition: two video cards of the GeForce and Radeon family, water-cooling system of Alphacool and a Bronze Series power supply from Seasonic.
The Palit GeForce GTX 1660 StormX 6GB video card is made in compact dimensions and can be installed in a mini-ATX package. Cooling provides by single-fan system with a plastic casing. The video card is one of the best products in terms of price and performance. The card is devoid of illumination and other additional decorative elements, and thanks to this, the manufacturer was able to launch such an inexpensive product on the market. Aluminum radiators with fins and three copper heat pipes are in direct contact with the graphics core and memory chips. The video card has enough performance to run modern FullHD resolution games.
Compared with previous GPU generations, the NVIDIA Turing microarchitecture introduced a number of improvements: the ability to simultaneously perform floating point operations (FP32) and integer (INT32), reworked the data caching system with an increased L1 volume, added new rendering methods, and also support the latest versions of technology DirectX 12 level Feature Level 12_1.

Alphacool Eisbaer LT240 CPU AiO-Wasserkhlung is a universal water cooling system for Intel and AMD processors, as well as for video cards with an additional water block from Alphacool.
The Alphacool’s radiator is completely copper, not aluminum, like the Enermax and many other models, and the company has made a significant improvement in heat dissipation.
Thanks to the split valve, cooler can be expanded by adding, for example, a video card, with Alphacool’s proprietary waterblock (purchased separately).
Pomp of Alphacool Eisbaer LT240 CPU AiO-Wasserkhlung with a ceramic bearing. The built-in ultra-ceramic low noise DC-LT pump is an extremely quiet pump that Alphacool uses in many of its products.
Another advantage of Water Cooling System from Alphacool is that it is easy installation: screw parts, pour liquid and good cooling for the processor and graphics card is ready! Kits and fasteners are neatly laid out in several bags with signatures, so that the user does not have to compare with the picture what is what and he can immediately use the fasteners for the desired system – AMD or Intel.
Hoses of Cooling system are very flexible and soft, made of PVC. Compared to Enermax’s products, the difference is huge, where the cables are quite rigid and difficult to bend during installation.
