5.0 out of 5 stars 32 gb flash drive USB3 comparison, 20 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
My new tower needed a 20 pin USB3 connection and this looked far better value than any other alternative. Did a speed test using HD tune to see if the pci-e affected it compared to the onboard USB3 ports.
Burst rate increased slightly to 61 MB/sec from 55.2,whilst the average transfer rate dropped slightly to 121 MB/sec from 122.5 MB/sec.

The biggest improvement was not having to fiddle about blindly around the back of the PC.
Very happy with it!

4.0 out of 5 stars Really good fan controller, 19 Nov 2013

I've had cheaper ones that produced buzzing noises when it was throttling a fan, this doesn't. Sliders feel like good quality and don't wiggle about

5.0 out of 5 stars Very happy with it,so far!, 19 Nov 2013

Packaging was very good,solid and well protected. Once I figured out what the instructions were trying to tell me (wish they would give different sockets different instructions, however basic) it was straight forward, Radiator is bulky,deep. Nothing bent or damaged.
It keeps my FX 8320 @ 4ghz at a max of about 50° playing Crysis 3, idle is about 30°.
I have 2 cooler master fans in the front of the case on quiet and its fan doesn't produce noise over the top of them, no noise at all from pump. It can be used in a push pull if needs be, long screws in the box.

I'm only 1 week in so will update in a month..

Red side failed after 2 week, returned it. Plants were just about doing OK up till then though. A week after being told a replacement was going to be sent I'm being refunded. Waste of time really,lesson learned.

A big improvement over my USB2 datatravellers write speeds, seems sturdy enough. No issues getting windows to recognize the size etc. Really good buy!

5.0 out of 5 stars Bargain., 7 Feb 2013

Did a tiny chip to get some practice before I hit the MOT failure crater (10mm ish). Built the big one up in 2 layers as I didn't put enough in first time. On a cloudy day it didn't take too long at all, under half hour. Both are now barely noticeable and smooth to the touch.

Was quoted £50 for a possible fix but as it was 2 to 3 inch from edge it was a gamble on them not cracking it for the £180 screen replacement. This stuff was an easy gamble,couldn't lose really.

Fiddly but simple and easy to use

5.0 out of 5 stars power supply, 5 Jan 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought this to upgrade my set up,had a really cheap 700w that I had to connect numerous adapters to..got very messy..the motherboard needing 24+8pin and the graphics needing 2x6 pin,2 sata raid 0 hard drives,2 blu ray/dvd players,4 led fans and 2 strip lights and so on,this handles them easily!
The leads are..
20+4 pin atx
4+4 pin power
4 molex
8 sata
2x6 pin pci-e
2x6+2 pin pci-e
All long enough for my mid-sized tower.
Not sure if thats the proper names for them but its what I call em.
Delivered within a day,boxed,sealed and genuine!!

Update, after 15 months of gaming and being dragged about its ticking over nicely,no noise increase and all connectors are still good
