StarTech 6
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

5 out of 5 eggs Simple - as it should be. 10/21/2013

This review is from: StarTech 6" 4 Pin Molex to SATA Power Cable Adapter SATAPOWADAP

Pros: Simple

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: What more is there to say? Got 3 of's an adapter, it's simple and works.

StarTech 4 Port PCI Express PCIe SuperSpeed USB 3.0 Controller Card Adapter with SATA Power - Low Profile Model PEXUSB3S4V
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: 4 ports
Fits 2U rack mount case (low profile) as well as full desktop tower
Includes both low-profile and full-size PCI slot brackets

Cons: Narrow PCI slots (too close together or too much metal between slots) may require trimming the case slightly

Other Thoughts: Seems to work very well, it gives 4 USB 3.0 ports in a very small form factor at a price comparable to some 2-port cards. As another review said, if your PCI slots are too close together or have metal between them it MAY require slight filing or modification to the case. I was able to make it fit by loosening the screws slightly on this and the PCI cards on either side, then carefully and gently adjusting the USB ports by less than 1/16 inch until they lined up with the PCI slot cutout in my case. Once I plugged in 4 USB cables I re-tightened the PCI slot screws to securely keep everything in the correct position.

Habey EMC-600BL Black Heavy duty 3mm aluminum Server Case 60W

5 out of 5 eggs Nice little case 10/16/2013

This review is from: Habey EMC-600BL Black Heavy duty 3mm aluminum Server Case 60W

Pros: Ultra small

Cons: Challenge for fitting drives & cables

Other Thoughts: I put a GA-C1007UN-D motherboard in this and it was a very snug fit to make a SATA cable and CompactFlash to SATA SSD fit in as well but it works. It's doable without any fans added but I eventually added a pair of 10x40mm fans where the PCI slot is and it helps keep things significantly cooler with almost zero increase in noise.

One note the power plug goes out the side (why?) so I suggest drilling a hole in the backplate and moving it - the connector is held on with a nut so it's trivial to change.
