Vantec 4 Channel 6-Port SATA 6 Gb/s PCIe RAID Host Card Model UGT-ST644R with HyperDuo
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Cheap

Cons: Ok until I tried to push large amounts of data through it then drives started to go offline and it all went downhill.

Other Thoughts: I am running a linux box with 8 HD's and one ssd.
I needed the extra sata controlers.
It read my drives fine and I could make small copy operations to it.
But when I tried to reorganize some data I kept having drives drop offline and the files I copied were not readable. I figured out the only drives that were messing up were the ones connected to this controler
My case has very low temps so it has never been hot.

SAMSUNG USB 2.0 Slim External DVD Writer Model SE-208AB/TSBS
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: small and it works just what I wanted

Cons: Unknown

Other Thoughts: just bought it because I don't want to put a optical reader in my box for the one or two times a month I need it

GIGABYTE GA-990FXA-UD3 AM3+ AMD 990FX + SB950 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: soooooo many things I installed this board a long time ago so all I remember was thinking this is great
the 3Xusb
this board had done everything I want o.c. air at first now on water the only con is gone

Cons: North bridge hotter than ?

Other Thoughts: I bought this board for $60 (open box) after I went over the board I realized I stole it
I had to add a block for the north bridge for my water loop
going to buy another one at twice the price I paid
unless you want to run a 3 or 4 vid card setup there is no reason to buy any other AMD mb
