  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: I have been running this PSU since March 2007 (7-1/2 years) across two different computer builds. This PSU is as Rock-Solid reliable today as it was when I first installed it.

What more can you ask from your PSU?

Cons: None

CORSAIR HX Series CMPSU-520HX 520W ATX12V v2.2 and EPS12V 2.91 SLI CrossFire 80 PLUS Certified Modular Active PFC Compatible with Core i7 Power Supply
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: I have been running this PSU since January 2007 (7-1/2 years) across three different computer builds. This PSU is as Rock-Solid reliable today as it was when I first installed it.

What more can you ask from your PSU?

This has led to the purchase of 4x more PSU from Corsair, and all of them are still humming a long just fine as well.

Cons: None what so ever.

SYBA SD-VIA-1A2S VIA PCI SATA 1.5G / IDE ATA 133 Combo Controller Card / Supports Raid 0, 1, 0+1, JBOD, non-RAID mode
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: - Multiple expandability via PCI slot
- Easy to install
- Has its own BIOS to handle RAID setup and usage
- Simple instructions on how to get it working
- Works better than a KINGWIN ADP-06 SATA to IDE Bridge Board

Cons: - Has its own BIOS to handle RAID setup and usage. This adds a bit of extra time to the POST process when your machine boots up.

- A bit tricky to setup if not attaching to a HDD or not setting up a RAID array (instructions focused on RAID/HDD setup)

Other Thoughts: This is a great little board. I needed a way to attached a SATA DVD-Writer to an aging Pre-SATA motherboard. I tried to use a KINGWIN ADP-06 SATA to IDE Bridge with no luck, so I purchased this one local, since it was cheaper than the Egg price. It has worked flawlessly.

Setup is a bit tricky if not attaching an HDD, or not setting up a RAID. I had to findle around with various configurations of board + drive before the board would report to the BIOS and WIN XP:

(1) install bare board & boot the PC. Windows will not notice the board.
(2) shut down, attach the non-HDD drive (an ASUS Model DRW-24F1ST for me), and reboot.
(3) Install the drivers, per instructions, when Windows detects the now functional board
(4) reboot and notice the board BIOS that follows the Motherboard BIOS POST process.
(5) Everything works well
