Works

Silverstone CLEARCMOS Case Accessory
Silverstone CLEARCMOS Case Accessory

Pros: It's a manual switch. It works, unless it falls of the case. Mine didn't fall off, so still switches left to right, and right to left. That is all to it.

Cons: Doesn't do up and down, and vice versa, unless I put my case on its side, lol. Maybe I will tilt my case to see if it works any better on an angle ;-)

Nippon Labs SATA to Molex Power Adapter SATA-FM SATA 15 Pin male to Molex 4 pin female adaptor Cable for SATA I and SATA II Hard Drive Model SATA-FM, 7 Inches

Pros: It came free.

Cons: Bulky. A simple wire connector is soooo much better. I'm not using it as it sticks a few inches away from the hard drive (or whatever you wanna connect it to). Kinda useless.

Misleading description

VANTEC NexStar NST-D400SU3 Plastic 2.5" & 3.5" White SATA USB 3.0 & eSATA Dual Bay SuperSpeed Hard Drive Dock
VANTEC NexStar NST-D400SU3 Plastic 2.5" & 3.5" White SATA USB 3.0 & eSATA Dual Bay SuperSpeed Hard Drive Dock

Pros: Don't know yet, have not plugged it in yet.

Cons: Misleading box description!!!! The packing box says drive support sata I/II//III. When I flip the unit upside down, the label on it says drive support sata I/II and there is NO sata III listed in it! For me it is not a problem, but if you plan to plug in maybe a SSD or something fast hoping for sata III, it is NOT there! If it is, then manufacturer should either make correction to the unit label, or remove the false information from the packing box. This is quite dishonest advertising.

Awesome!

Pros: Big and spacious, bigger than I thought, but it's ok. Looks really nice, not a space ship, just a classy looking box. Easy to work with. Quiet fans, keep the inside well ventilated (according to my asus AI tool)

Cons: Finger prints are easily seen if you play too much with it. Status lights are awfully bright. At night I had to cover it or the room was all lit. I need to come up with a solution for it. Case wires are switched in comparison to my old case, so when I plugged them into the MB, no status lights were shown until I compared the cabling with the manual and indeed front was back and back was front.

Freakin' loud!

Pros: Fits the case, powers the PC

Cons: Extremely loud fan!

Overall Review: This thing is like a jet engine. And it has this weird humming rattling sound that is really hard to get used to. It will drive you nutts unless you're deaf. I thought I will somehow get used to the noise but....still makes me angry.
