Koutech 2-Port SuperSpeed USB 3.0 PCI Card Model IO-PU230

5 out of 5 eggs Works well on older Asrock board. 03/10/2013

This review is from: Koutech 2-Port SuperSpeed USB 3.0 PCI Card Model IO-PU230

Pros: Everything was painless. I'm running this on a AsRock Dual SATA 2.0 mb. I benchmarked around 60 Mb/s on an external USB 2.5" hard drive. Windows XP.

Cons: No cons. Worked out nice.

Other Thoughts: Wish it was a little less expensive.

SYBA USB 3.0 19pin Header Card with Dual Type-A Femal Ports Cable, Mini PCI-Express Form Factor Model SD-MPE20142
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Does what is supposed to do. My WD Passport 1TB drive benchmarked at around 58-60 Mb/s.

Cons: Documentation is sparse, but everything worked. Connectors prohibit easy mounting into a laptop. But it is possible with much work. Would have been nice is they offered a version that had more compact connectors for laptop use.

Other Thoughts: I put this into Lenovo T61 Laptop. It was a success but it was not easy. I had to remove the connection headers and solder directly to the board. I then gutted the cable and mounted the USB connector on the front of the T61, just in front of the ram. I stole USB +5V from one of existing USB 2.0 connectors with a green wire.

5 out of 5 eggs Q6600 running at full speed 10/06/2007

This review is from: ASRock 4CoreDual-SATA2 R2.0 LGA 775 VIA PT880 Pro/PT880 Ultra ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: 1)Allows you to keep your old AGP card.
2) Works with Conroe Dual and Quads
3) Allows you to use older DDR memory, but you should get new DDR2 memory (553-667) if you want to get the full potential of this board.
4)Excellent Price.

Cons: 1) Must web research complicated BIOS settings.
2) No Vcore overclocking adjustments in BIOS, but some mild amount of overclocking is possible (290 fsb)

Other Thoughts: I am very happy I went with this board. The main reason I went with this board is I wanted to keep my old AGP card.
I thought it would be risky running a quad core in this board. The AsRock site indicates that quad cores MAY be undeclocked 5% and some individuals have reported this on the web. I found that I could set fsb to 266 and my Q6600 ran just fine. I believe those having trouble are running older DDR memory. I went with OCZ's Special Ops 667 DDR2 and it works great. My memory benchmarks exceed the Q6600 reference in Sisoft Sandra.
I am not a big gamer nor do I overclock. But if that's your gig then check the web, there are options to overclock this board to higher levels.
