Hello Skooter Blog readers. Today I talk about Front Panel 5.25 "Multi-Function All-in-One USB 2.0 / 3.0 and Card Reader (All-in-1 5.25″ USB 2.0 / 3.0 Multi-Function Front Panel Media Card Reader Dashboard) acquired on DX – DealExtreme e cuja purchase has been reported in a previous article aqui no Skooter Blog.

This Front Panel 5.25 "Multi-Function All-in-One USB 2.0 / 3.0 and Card Reader (All-in-1 5.25″ USB 2.0 / 3.0 Multi-Function Front Panel Media Card Reader Dashboard) was purchased to install in a cabinet Cooler Master HAF X and enjoy a couple of USB headers 2.0 Motherboard Gigabyte GA-Z77X-WIFI-WB UD5H that were unused, and also because the card reader which is always helpful.

On Front Panel 5.25 "Multi-Function All-in-One USB 2.0 / 3.0 and Card Reader there is a card reader with slots for CF, TF, microSD, M2, SD, MMC e MS. Next to it there is a type power connector “molex”, microphone input and output headphones. As for USB ports: are 6 USB 2.0 and 2 USB 3.0. A SATA input and an eSATA input complement the panel.

O USB connector 2.0 aware of 6 USB slides 2.0 and card reader. Apparently, internally there are a couple of USB hubs 2.0, one in each of the two ports that Front Panel 5.25 "Multi-Function All-in-One USB 2.0 / 3.0 and Card Reader handle motherboard. One of the ports is converted into four USB ports 2.0 through the internal USB hub, and the other is converted into the card reader and two USB ports 2.0.

The USB ports 3.0 from the Front Panel 5.25 "Multi-Function All-in-One USB 2.0 / 3.0 and Card Reader They go straight to the front panel. I ended up choosing not to connect them, preferred to leave only the two USB ports 3.0 the enclosure itself on the front, and the other four I left the back through the Rear Panel with 2 USB slides 3.0 Female for motherboards with USB connector 3.0 from 20 Pinos (2-Port USB 3.0 Female to Motherboard 20-Pin Extender Back Panel Bracket Cable – Blue).

SATA and eSATA ports are also connected directly to the motherboard. Connected only one, which is what was available, because the other were used with hard drives, optical drives and drawers of the cabinet itself.

The molex connector is also connected, I do not know if it helps the power of the USB ports or just goes straight to the front molex connector. Fortunately not appeared molex power problems leaking into the USB bus and making the motherboard enable protection against short circuit and off.

Finally, the microphone input and the output of headphones I also chose not to use, for I am already using the input and the output of the cabinet that has exactly the same purpose.

Unfortunately, Front Panel 5.25 "Multi-Function All-in-One USB 2.0 / 3.0 and Card Reader (All-in-1 5.25″ USB 2.0 / 3.0 Multi-Function Front Panel Media Card Reader Dashboard) It is exhausted in DX and it is not very likely to appear, more to DX It has several other options front panels. Today I probably would choose this model, that does not have USB ports 3.0 I'm not using, has only one eSATA which is precisely what I'm using, the card reader has, has HD audio, I could use on-board audio, since the sound card is connected to the input / output cabinet, which is also HD. The speed controls fans I would not use, but the temperature sensor would be a cool addition. There are also several other models to suit all tastes.

Cables of Front Panel 5.25 "Multi-Function All-in-One USB 2.0 / 3.0 and Card Reader They are long enough to reach the most distant connectors. The downside is for plastic box with hole incompatible with the lock system from 5.25 drives″ do gabinete Cooler Master HAF X. I managed to fix it in a reasonable manner, but it was more work than I would like.
