This review is from: KINGWIN FPX-004 Multi-Function LCD Fan Controller Panel w/ Card Reader & USB 3.0 Hub

Pros:

Great concept, I originally had two bays occupied to do both of what this can do. I had a Fan controller and a milti-card reader. I purchased this because my card reader failed and i figured i can kill two birds with one stone.
If you dont use one of the functions, you can remove two screws and get to the insides where you can remove cables you dont use. I didnt need the Sata or USB 3.0, so was able to remove them and not have dead end cables cluttering up my CPU.

Cons:

I wired everything up as per the instructions. When i power my CPU up, i saw smoke and noticed a burnt rubber smell. When i secured my CPU i saw the power wire of this unit melted. I unloaded all the connections (USB, Sata, Fans etc...everything but power) and still the unit was getting hot and melting the coating of the power cable.

Other Thoughts:

I made the mistake of dressing up everything on the computer prior to plugging in and testing the componet first. As an ET, i should have known better, just had to cut all the zip ties and unwire everything to remove this for RMA. I am getting a replacement because I like the concept of this thing and hope i got a lemon.

*Make sure your MoBo has a USB 3.0 plug in. My MoBo was purchased just as USB 3.0 was starting to be popular and mine only has built in USB 3.0. So I was not able to take advantage of this units USB connectors.
The Temp probs are only external connections. You cannot plug into the MoBo, so it is wrong for the company to label this CPU/System. It really is wherever you decide to tape the prob to.
