Thermaltake AC0031 USB 3.0 Support MS Slot, CF Slot, SD Slot,Extreme Slot, Micro SD Slot, M2 Port Multi-Card Reader
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: With the 19/20 pin internal connector, combined with the type A connector (either internal or...), the USB 3.0 ports PLUS the five (5) concurrent card slots ALL run at full 3.0 speed. Sweet.

The molex power connector makes sure they all have enough juice.

The reader has an E-Sata connector too.

Talk about packing a ton of good stuff into a little 3.5 inch slot, this one has it.

Construction quality is decent. Certainly I've seen worse...

Hey, if you've got a spare pci-e x1, add some external plus an internal Type A sockets using something like a syba PEX20135, and you can stay internal with all the cables. Just sayin'...

BTW, shouldn't complain if you didn't think it through before purchase...

Cons: No manual. Really. If not for the good people writing reviews here, how the heck would others know how this thing works? Like, that the right USB 3.0 goes to the Type A connector? Sheesh. That's the one egg off.

Other Thoughts: My motherboard almost stopped Windows 7 from working when I installed what was (for the mobo mfg) the latest driver for the onboard USB 3.0 - but only when this Reader was connected. Boot went from around a minute to about 20. Really.

Took much longer than that to troubleshoot. Motherboard wasn't Etron or Renesas - it is VIA. Works just fine after installing latest driver available from VIA website. Go figure.

I could have blamed this on Thermaltake. I could blame it on GigaB. I could blame it on society... No, I just isolated problem and found the improved driver.

Now all I want to do is raz the people who didn't do their troubleshooting props before RMA'ing the product. Tech Knowledge of (cough) 5? Oh My Goodness...

XIGMATEK eXTREME SILENT Series XSF-F1252 120mm Case Fan with FCB (Fluid Circulative Bearing), 4 in 1 package CFS-SXGJR-KU3
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Low price.
Black screws.
Decent air flow.

Cons: eXTREME SILENT??? You're kidding, right? Loudest fans I own.
Underwhelming MTBF at 30,000 hrs
FCB - what's that? same MTBF as most sleeve bearing fans, so not hydro or fluid dynamic. Just a little misleading..

Other Thoughts: Bought at same time as a four pack of CM Super Fans (2-ball), which are easily 3db quieter, and have 50,000 MTBF. Wouldn't call them 'ultra quiet', but they put 'eXTREME' to shame.

Cooler Master Vortex Plus - CPU Cooler with Aluminum Fins and 4 Direct Contact Heatpipes
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Low profile
Doesn't block ram
Very good air cooling
Fan blows down, helps cool VRM, RAM, etc.
Fits FM2/+ socket

Cons: Old style contact for Cooler Master, IOW not the EVO style base. Waste of Arctic Silver filling in the 'cracks'. They should release an EVO of this.

Other Thoughts: Have this in an HTPC case, so needed lower profile without sacrificing cooling performance. First FM2+ for me, A10-7850K on an A88XM-A w/ 8g of Radeon 2400 ram. Idles at 28-30C, Prime95 only 44-46C. Very impressive performance for relatively small size cooler.
