Link Depot POW-ADT-4P8 4-pin to 8-pin Adapter Cable
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: less than 1 day

5 out of 5 eggs 4pin to 8 pin 10/28/2015

This review is from: Link Depot POW-ADT-4P8 4-pin to 8-pin Adapter Cable

Pros: $1.60 and free shipping

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: Only reason I needed this "adapter" is because my new case has a bottom mounted power supply compared to my old top mounted case - in my new case the power supply 4pin cpu cable wouldn't reach the socket on my motherboard - i could have just used some extra wire and solder to increase the length a few cms, but for $1.60 including shipping this was the lazy man's solution.

Corsair Nova Series 2 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Can't think of one single pro, honestly.

Cons: As EVERYONE has experienced, these drives will stutter, freeze, and fail. I tried the 3rd party firmware fix (posted by mackad1414) as well as Corsair's suggestion - "secure erase by "Parted Magic". Still JUNK.

Other Thoughts: Thanks mackad1414 for the link to 3rd party firmware update - this _helps_, but the drive is still a pig and SLOW even compared to HDDs. Nothing can fix this drive, send it back to Corsair for RMA and hope for a different replacement. Maybe if enough of us return these drives they will finally admit problems and send us working drives.

ZOTAC GeForce GT 430 (Fermi) DirectX 11 ZT-40605-10L 512MB 64-Bit DDR3 PCI HDCP Ready Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: DirectX 11 PCI Card

Cons: Price

Other Thoughts: I don't know why everyone says you need a 300 or even 250 watt power supply - I installed this in an IBM ThinkCentre S50 with 200 watt power supply and it works no problem. I have played Civilization 5 for hours and ran benchmarks (heaven and 3dmark) without any power issue - and the S50's have a CD-ROM drive AND floppy drive to suck power as well.
This card will boost life into practically any old computer with a PCI slot - a MUST HAVE if you work or play on an older PC.
