This review is from: ASUS H81M-A LGA 1150 Intel H81 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard
Pros: Asus makes a good product.
Cons: The only PCIE slot appears to be a version 1.1. I hoped and assumed it would be newer and ideally a version 3 (2007).
I made a bad assumption that an Asus mobo purchased in 2013 would come with a newer version of PCIE version. I searched all over the net for more info on this specific mobo regarding PCIE version, and I found NO MENTION. Even Asus site had no info on version.
Other Thoughts: Note to self - stop assuming!!!READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Rosewill RDRD-12001 2.5" or 3.5” HDD/ SSD Drive Bracket For 5.25" Drive Bay, Black
Pros: No problems noticed. Comes with a black face plate installed, but has silver and white face plates in the box.
Cons: Doesn't come with a bracket to mount it in a 3.5" bay. A product pre req warning in the product write-up would be helpful. Perhaps I missed it???
The USB3 header cable is a tad short so my cable routing was not exactly the preferred course. Smaller chassis would have no worry, or possibly mount it in a lower bay.
Other Thoughts: Make sure your mainboard has a USB3 header, otherwise look at getting an add-on card with a USB3 header.READ FULL REVIEW
Other Thoughts: Regarding the 'helpful' post titled 'Cry Once' I agree that everyone over uses the bright blue LEDs.
I've used a black perm marker on various LEDs to dim them. It won't dim them completely and it won't affect the color.
Hope that helps!
I have an electric razor with a green LED that pulses and I swear if I stared at it more than 10 seconds it would give me a seizure.
