This review is from: MASSCOOL 4 Ports USB3.0 PCI Express Card Model PCE-U304
Cons: -Molex...... I hate MOLEX.....
I knew it had molex, but it fought me.... See other thoughts.
Other Thoughts: I bought this at competitor, thought I'd leave my experiences with this card.
Card I did not have a single issues driver wise, Stuck it in to my top PCI-E 1x slot booted up and windows installed the drivers without a problem. This is on windows 10.
I now Have 10 USB3.0 ports and 10 USB 2.0 ports, and I got 1 free port lol. I needed this card.
Really the only problem I has was the molex connector, It was a tight fit, like really tight. The molex from my PSU (EVGA 1300G2) would not fit with out feeling like I was going to rip the molex off the card. I had to get creative with a molex extension, or well I had to make 1 from a dead PSU, which then the Molex didn't have a single problem connecting into the card.
This review is from: LOGISYS Computer MC4002IW 120mm Hydro Bearing Ice Wind CPU Cooler
Pros: -Vary light compared to even smaller coolers
-Fan matches 1 of the systems I put it in
-Easy to mount on AMD and Intel 1156 system
-Looks pleasing to show off
-Extra clips for adding another fan
Cons: -I hate the plastic mounting hardware for Intel systems, feels like it might snap, although its holding just fine.
-AMD mounting system is pretty much old news, but this thing will fight you with the amopunt of prssure it needs to clip it, Intel system was fine in this reguard.
-Tall ram could get in the way, though I didn't have that issue with either system.
-Intructions didn't show how to clip the fan on, I kept putting the clip on backwards at first.
-Some of the fins had small bends around the edges.
-Fan cord for me was way too long on both systems, could vary from system to system.
Other Thoughts: I didn't buy this at Newegg but rather a compeditor for a few buck cheaper and I didn't have to wait a few days for shipping.
AMD CPU it cools is a FX 6300 at 4ghz 4.1ghz turbo 1.3v 43c max after 20 min of Intel burn test.
Intel CPU it cools is a I7 3770s 3.1ghz 3.9ghz turbo 1.1v 51c max after 20 min of Intel burn test.
These were both with the fan on the lowest the motherboard would allow it.
This is a decent cooler for its price point, though I'm really not a fan of Logisys products, but this is decent, I give them that this time.
Pros: Its fast and cheap. Looks sorta nice, although I wish there was better looking sticker on it, though thats personal preference.
Reads are great, Though Im using this 480gb for my games.
Cons: These things don't come with mounting screws, I understand they say its upgrade on the box, which would be fine for a laptop since the screws originally with the 2.5 inch HDDs will work on the SSD's. But on the desktop side of things, they don't include the screws. Desktops 3.5inch drive screws will not work on these SSD's.
I didn't really have a problem as I got so many parts and screws laying around, but I can't see why they didn't include the screws.
I'm thinking of them who don't have spare screws or is planning on using this on their desktop.
Other Thoughts: I have 5 different size PNY SSD's in various PC's (They just work and were cheap), I didn't buy this on Newegg, it was cheaper at Best buy at the time, and I didn't have to wait.
I have 2x 120GB on other PC's
2x 240GB My rig
1x 480GB My rig
Idk why these SSD's get such low ratings, I had my 240GB's and the 120GB's for well over a year, the 480GB for a good while now with no issues at all.
120GB in a HP with a C2D Q6600 some Foxcon DDR2 motherboard Sata 2).
120GB with a Gigabyte 78LMT-USB3 (sata 2)
2x 240GB & 480GB on a ASRock 990 FX Fatality Pro (sata 3)
