    USB 3.0 PCI Card Working Properly?

    Wow that Kingston 64gb looks pretty legit, I see it priced for only about $50usd... still a little too much for me to spend right now just for another flash drive. I would much rather invest towards a SSD but still some of the prices are still up there. I am guessing 92 pounds may be accurate to...

    USB 3.0 PCI Card Working Properly?

    Thanks again for the information, I learned a lot going through this post. I hope I can find a cheap USB 3.0 Flash Drive, but if it's not a good price for 32GB+ then it's probably worth saving my money towards something with good benchmark reviews and ratings. I believe I will probably invest in...

    USB 3.0 PCI Card Working Properly?

    Very nice, my primary HD is a Seagate Barracuda Green ST2000DL003 2TB 5900 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s which I know is not the fastest of hard drives but it was cheap and I have a lot of games installed so it does the trick, when I can spring for a Solid State I'll eventually get one to replace...

    USB 3.0 PCI Card Working Properly?

    I installed the updated drivers and I saw my 1st transfer (NTFS) started around 135mbps and was at that for awhile but has dropped down to 30mbps... The average always seems to fall between 30-50mbps. I was transferring from my 2TB hard drive to the USB 3.0 device... Thanks FX-GMC I was...

    USB 3.0 PCI Card Working Properly?

    Okay while under ExFat my device only seemed to transfer my test 21GB that I have been testing with at an average of 50MBps or so. The drivers are almost done downloading, I'll see what they can do.

    USB 3.0 PCI Card Working Properly?

    Thanks rtw, I am going to try installing that driver. For my Flash Drive, I have never used exFAT, actually never even noticed it. I am going to format it to that and try some transfers. As for any type of download/driver on the egg's site I do not see any, I did go to the PCI Card's...

    USB 3.0 PCI Card Working Properly?

    It gets about the same type of speeds. I am wondering if my motherboard is just too old to withstand 3.0's speeds at all. Thankfully the PCI card I purchased wasn't expensive, I am just still trying to figure out if it is capable of working or not, especially now that I have it connected to the...

    USB 3.0 PCI Card Working Properly?

    I recently modified an unused Apple Power Mac G5 case to hold my PC. I figured I would take the opportunity to purchase a USB 3.0 PCI Card (HooToo HT-PC002) considering my PC is a couple years old and I do not have the funds to build a new PC as of now. I purchased this cheap little PCI Card and...

    [PLOG] Mac G5 --> PC Conversion

    This is my new Front Panel Reader w/ USB 3.0 output (connected to my USB 3.0 PCI Card), headphone/mic jacks working properly, media card readers working properly, I just have to get the thing mounted or plant it down some how to be sturdy enough. Maybe 1 day I will try and figure out the Power...

    [PLOG] Mac G5 --> PC Conversion

    As you can see my current Power Button is just hanging out alongside the front panel... the black front panel bay is/was my USB 2.0/Media Card and headphone output but I believe it shorted out or just died the other day... so I ordered another with USB 3.0 capability from Newegg it's an nMedia...

    [PLOG] Mac G5 --> PC Conversion

    The bay power switches are extremely cool, a little pricey but I think they'd be worth it for the finishing touches. I was glad this little project worked out, compared to what I had my old system in it was completely disgusting and my friends laughed at it despite I can still game with the rest...

    [PLOG] Mac G5 --> PC Conversion

    I gave up on trying to get the motherboard connected to the G5 Case's Power Switch, I never cared about the front USB on the case as I cut out a slot for my little Front Panel Card Reader/USB I got cheap off NewEgg years ago. I patched together my old towers Power On button, it looks awful but...

    [PLOG] Mac G5 --> PC Conversion

    Hey guys, I must say some really nice work above... totally blows away what I came up with converting my G5 to ATX tower. I am approaching the finish line as I just need to file down my back panel a bit more and then snap it into place so that my PCI cards can reach to be securely screwed down...
