Silverstone PCI Express Card with Dual Internal 19pin USB 3.0 Connectors Model ECU01
  • neweggOwned For: less than 1 day

Pros: I have no need for UASP so I just downloaded the latest drivers from the Silverstone Website. There is a second "Turbo" installer that seems to enable USAP and turbo mode which I couldn't get to work. It keeps saying that it couldn't detect my card. I am running windows 8.1 64bit.

As far as the card itself, it does what it it is advertised to do. That is to add 2 internal 19pin usb 3.0 headers. I have an Antec 1200 computer case and I had previously been using 2 PCI Express 1x cards to add support for my case's 2 usb 3.0 front ports. I had no use for the rear usb 3.0 ports and this card lacks rear USB 3.0 ports so that isn't a problem for me. I was about to purchase a new TV tuner that uses PCI-E x1 so I had to downsize to 1 USB 3.0 card and this was the perfect choice.

Make sure that you plug in the SATA power connector (use a molex to sata power adapter if you don't have a spare sata power connector) or this thing won't work.

Cons: No rear USB 3.0 ports. Minor con since I don't need them really.

Other Thoughts: I was able to retire 2 USB 3.0 cards because I was only using the internal headers from those cards. They were PCI-E 1x cards, though.

Note that it uses a PCI-E x4 connector. I didn't realize this when I purchased it so I had to put it in a spare 16x slot. Yes you can plug it into a 4x, 8x, or 16x slot.

Pros: I have been installing these in all of the laptops that have been coming in that are 2-4 years old. They are very good at breathing life into older systems. Of course they are marvelous with a new system as well.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: They are a bit thinner than traditional HDD's so if you are putting them in a laptop you may have to put a bit of foam backed tape as a cushion. I use 3M double sided mounting tape and leave the label on once side for this purpose.

Silverstone CPF01 3.94

This review is from: Silverstone CPF01 3.94" PWM Fan Splitter Cable

Pros: It lets you connect two cpu or case fans to one PWM jack on your motherboard. Ideally you would use 2 of the same make/model and the motherboard can view the RPM of one of the fans and control the voltage of both of them at the same time. (Not individually obviously).

I used this to power 2 Cooler Master R4-BMBS-20PK-R0 Blade Master Case Fans on my Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO.

Cons: None. It isn't very long, but then again, fan cables are too long as it is so that was fine with me.

Other Thoughts: I liked the sleeving on the cables. Kind of makes me wish my other cables were sleeved haha!
