Koutech 4-Port USB 3.0 PCI Express (x1) (3xExt+1xInt) with 15-pin SATA Power Connector Model IO-PEU437
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: It's actually a quite nicely built card, USB ports are spaced nicely, it takes a SATA power plug and has an internal USB connector.

Cons: The company appears to be gone so the drivers are not available any more, nor is any support that I can find. So, I've been trying to get this working on Windows 7 and can't find drivers so it's useless. Microsoft doesn't recognize it or load Plug and Play drivers. So, it's a piece of dead hardware at this point.

G.SKILL Value Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333 (PC3 10600) Desktop Memory Model F3-10600CL9D-8GBNT
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Snapped in to my 4 year old mobo and worked fine. I went from 4Gb to 12Gb and it just recognized the memory and made use of it. No problem. Good packaging.

Cons: none

Noctua NH-C12P SE14 140mm SSO CPU Cooler

4 out of 5 eggs Great cooler but watch horizontal clearances 03/19/2011

This review is from: Noctua NH-C12P SE14 140mm SSO CPU Cooler

Pros: Freaking fantastically effective cooler. With a Core 2 Duo, after 12 hours at idle, CPU temp had settled at 41c. After two full hours at 100% CPU load using Stress with 8 threads, the temperature increased to 42c. 'nuff said.

It's quiet, the contact surface is polished, it comes with all the bits and they are good.

Cons: The cooler on the ZOTAC GF9300-A-E fits in only one orientation, which is fine, but the fan is huge in diameter so it hits the power supply. The contact pressure against the power supply doesn't quite exert enough force to dislodge it from making good contact with the CPU. I've not been able to come up with a work around short of zip tying the fan off center so I'm going to leave it in contact with the power supply.

This Zotac board places the CPU quite close to the power supply so your mileage may vary with another mobo. I'd give it 5 stars if it cleared the power supply, it's really a beautiful piece of musclecar sexy engineering that's insanely effective.
