VANTEC UGT-IH203 2-Port USB 3.0 Front Panel
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

5 out of 5 eggs Work and look great 11/12/2013

This review is from: VANTEC UGT-IH203 2-Port USB 3.0 Front Panel

Pros: Provides two USB 3.0 to front of case. Well constructed with metal case and nice cables. Ports spaced apart to handle devices that have large USB interface mounts. Black panel to match my other black panels devices.

Cons: Non so far.

Other Thoughts: Had to buy a 5.25 to 3.5 adapter bracket ($5) to mount the unit. My Antec Sonota 500 series case have 4-- 5.25 openings. One used for a multi DVD writer/reader; one used for the SSD using an 3.5 to 2.5 adapter and a old hard drive panel for 5.25 mounting; one for a multi-card flash card readers, with 3 additional USB 2.0 ports and one ESATA port; finally one for the USB 3.0 box. As I migrated to SATA drives, I was left with a lot of EIDE drives, which I converted to external USB drives. So the extra USB ports on the front really came in handy.

5 out of 5 eggs Big, but quiet 11/11/2013

This review is from: NZXT RC-RST40-01 120mm Sleeve Direct Touch 4 Heat Pipe CPU Cooler

Pros: Big 120 MM fan with 4 heat pipes. Very quiet--come with an inline power adapter to lower the fan speed. Very good price, $15. Instructions are very clear. Everything lined up fine.

Cons: Very big--whole assembly stand 160 mm in height. The fin stick over my dual memory chips; still plenty of room for my memory chip and the heat spreaders on them. I knew this when I purchased

Other Thoughts: The cooler was mounted onto a AMD A8 5600K APU, which is installed to a MSI FM2-A75MA-E35 mother board. I was barely able to get the assembly onto my mid tower case, as the height needed was 160mm. Set the case 120 mm fan to low speed and the cooler fan to the low speed as well. Use Silver oxide thermal paste instead of the thermal compound that came with it. I over clocked the APU from 3.6 to 3.78 GHz, and the dual memory chips, from 1600 to 1680 Mhz. Average board temp varies from 27 to 33 C, while the average cores temp varies from 41 to 65 C, depending on what is being done. With the Antec Sonata 500 mid tower case, and the two 120 fans running at its low speed, the whole system is very quiet. When installed the cooler, install the dual memory chip first before mounting the cooler on the APU.

5 out of 5 eggs NZXT RX-RST40-01 4 heat Pipes CPU Cooler 11/11/2013

This review is from: NZXT RC-RST40-01 120mm Sleeve Direct Touch 4 Heat Pipe CPU Cooler

Pros: Big 120mm fan with massive fin and 4 heat pipes directly touching the top of the CPU. Very quiet running fan and have an inline power adapter for lowering the fan speed.

Cons: Very big. Need least a mid tower case to handle the over height of the assembly of 160mm. But knew that before buying it.

Other Thoughts: Everything lined up fine. Although the fin stick over my dual memory, I still have plenty of room for the memories chip. The dual memory chips have heat spreaders on them as well. Just make sure you install the memory chip before you install the cooler. The whole assembly just fitted into my Antec Sonata 500 mid tower case.. The cooler was mounted on an AMD A8 5600K APU, installed on a MSI FM@-A75MA-E35 mother board. Over clocked the APU, from 3.6 to 3.78 GHz, and the dual memory chip, from 1600 to 1680 Mhz. Used silver oxide paste instead of the heat sink compound that came with the cooler. Board temp points average around 27 to 33 C, while the cores temp average around 40 to 65 C, depending on what is being done. This is running at the slowest fan speed I can do. The case and the two big 120 mm fans (one for exhausting heat out of case, one on cooler), running at lowest speed, have made the whole system very quiet.
