Pros: This board can be paired (SLI) with the longer "reference" design to allow air to easily flow since this shorter one does not block the air intake of a longer one. I bought 2 of these for 2 systems which already had the the larger reference design gtx670 and they work great.
Cons: I bought 2 of these, one retail box, one "open box" and the open box fan failed 45 days later. The fan is T129215SU and you can get it on e B a Y from china for under $15 including shipping. The order was missing the "free" video game but I managed to get a 2nd rebate as it seems they didnt notice I had only bought 1 retail box.
Other Thoughts: The case, at the end where the fan is located, easily pops out and you can remove the fan and replace it easily. I have had the fan in for 2 weeks now and ASUS has yet to respond to my original RMA request. I made the RMA request at the same time I ordered a pair of fans from hong kong. ASUS did send me 2 rebates which was nice as I was only entitled to one.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: SYBA SY-PCI40037 SATA II (3.0Gb/s) 1:5 (5x1) Port Multiplier PCI Mounting Card
Pros: Works with AOC-SAT2-MV8 a Hercules chipset but SMART is reported only for a single drive.
Works with SYBA SIL3124 chipset and SMART is reported for all drives not just first or last one. The above two boards are PCI-X but the SIL3124 was tested in a small PCI socket with the pins sticking past the end of the socket. This puts it into 32 bit mode instead of 64 but it worked perfectly.
Cons: Need to find a place to put it as the external 4 drive tower made by Stardom does not have enough room for the PCB board and I don't want to put the board in the computer case. Difficult to mount if not using a "slot".
Other Thoughts: Be nice if it had 4 mounting holes at the corners of the pcb as I could bolt it to the top of the enclosure and put a cover on it.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Low power, double precision arithmetic, cuda support, small size fits micro type boxes. Worked fine with PCIe 1.x slot.
Cons: None that I can think of right now. Wait - I wish it took only a single slot!
Other Thoughts: This had same performance as my old xfx gtx280 but used only 45 watts instead of 190+ watts and took 1/2 the length.READ FULL REVIEW
