PC Computer Case Cooling Fan Finger Guard Metal Grill Protector 140mm
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

5 out of 5 eggs Worked fine, should have bought this before I installed the first fan that my finger broke a blade off 02/21/2017

This review is from: PC Computer Case Cooling Fan Finger Guard Metal Grill Protector 140mm

Pros: This fits on the typical radiator used on liquid cooled CPU systems. Unaccountably, none of local computer stores carried this size but that is always a problem in some cities.

Cons: Screws were not long enough to go through the fan and attach to the radiator but that was due to the case construction and the radiator.

Other Thoughts: Eyelet for screws could have an offset to raise the grill. Picture appears to show an offset but there is none and the crossbar is perfectly horizontal with the eyelet. There was no problem with clearance on the fan I used so I did not need to use a washer to raise the crossbar.

ADATA 16GB UV128 USB 3.0 Flash Drive (AUV128-16G-RBE)
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

3 out of 5 eggs USB3 in name only 02/21/2017

This review is from: ADATA 16GB UV128 USB 3.0 Flash Drive (AUV128-16G-RBE)

Pros: I got a pair of these as they were cheap and I only needed USB2 and they worked fine for what I needed. I tried them on a USB3 Pci-e 1x adapter and a 1gb MP4 was written at 8-9 mbytes/sec only. The same file on the same port was written at 90-101 mbytes on a PNY USB3 but that PNY cost me a h e l l of a lot more.

Cons: ran at USB2 speed only.

Other Thoughts: Only recommend for use as USB2 as 16gb was pretty cheap. As another reviewer wrote, it can easily be labeled on the back.

SYBA 2-Port USB 3.0 PCI-Express Card, x1, Etron Chipset EJ168A with Full & Low Profile Brackets Model SD-PEX20158
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

5 out of 5 eggs This worked fine unlike two others I wasted my money on. 02/14/2017

This review is from: SYBA 2-Port USB 3.0 PCI-Express Card, x1, Etron Chipset EJ168A with Full & Low Profile Brackets Model SD-PEX20158

Pros: Uses PCIe x1 port and worked fine on my old P5e fully loaded mombo: Pair of HD5850 and SB X-Fi sound. For windows 7 download the 118 driver package. Dont bother with the one on the disk. Shows up as "Etron USB 3.0 Extensible Host Controller" and also "Etron USB3.0 Extensible Root Hub"

Cons: Does not have the latest driver but came with instructions on how to find them.

Other Thoughts: First tried an Orico and then a Renesas (Nec chip) USB3 and the provided drivers could not even recognized their boards and neither vendor provided info on newer drivers. Orico uses Fresco drivers and if you go to the Fresco site the links to their drivers are missing. After trying both of those X1 boards I remembered that I had used Etron's X4 board that had eSata as well as USB3 and I sure enough I found this X1 board on Newegg and it worked fine just like their X4 with eSata.
