DealExtreme: Header Adapter Plate Cape-mae c / 20 USB pin for two 3.0 c/ 15cm e Painel frontal 3.5″ com Hub 4 USB slides 3.0

Hello Skooter Blog readers. Today I talk about buying a Header Adapter Plate Cape-mae c / 20 USB pin for two 3.0 c/ 15cm (Mainboard 20-Pin to Dual USB 3.0 AF Adapter Cable (15CM-Length)) and an Painel frontal 3.5″ com Hub 4 USB slides 3.0 (High Speed USB 3.0 4-Port HUB) acquired na DealExtreme.

In May I had already purchased a Front panel bay 3.5 "card reader and SDHC/MS/SD/MMC/TF/M2 4 USB slides, that substituiu meu drive disquetes of 3.5″, since my current motherboard (Gigabyte GA-P67A-UD7-B3) no more support for floppy drives. But recently acquired an External HD (Seagate FreeAgent GoFlex) com interface USB 3.0, to be used with the WD TV Live. Normally, after downloading videos, sending them to the hard drive connected to the WD TV Live network using. But this process is usually very slow, I do not know if the WiFi connection is that the WD TV Live or because the HD is formatted in NTFS, whose performance on non-Windows operating systems is often poorly. Then, eventually, when I want to watch something that just finished downloading, I connect the external HD directly on your PC to copy the data.

To take advantage of the USB interface 3.0 I need to connect your external hard drive into one of the USB ports 3.0 at the rear of the cabinet (ports of the motherboard itself), which sometimes is complicated and requires the cabinet to take place or be looking for the door. So I decided to go in search of a front panel of 3.5″ com USB 3.0, after all there was a stall of 3.5″ left in my office. Initially there was no solution thus, except the Asus boards that already came with a panel of. Later appeared on DealExtreme the Painel frontal 3.5″ com Hub 4 USB slides 3.0 (High Speed USB 3.0 4-Port HUB), which cable is used to connect a standard USB port on the (The most common). The goal of this choice probably was to meet people who want to use any of the rear doors of the motherboards or internal ports PCI Express boards with USB controllers 3.0 to connect the front panel. For me no good, because there were no USB ports 3.0 The standard internally in my office, no hole to plug it to a tailgate outside.

Sometime later, finally appeared, also in DealExtreme, the Header Adapter Plate Cape-mae c / 20 USB pin for two 3.0 c/ 15cm (Mainboard 20-Pin to Dual USB 3.0 AF Adapter Cable (15CM-Length)), that serves precisely to convert a USB header 3.0 (from 20 pins, I believe that now is the standard) Two USB connectors 3.0 The default. Buying the two items I would be solving my problem, or at least that's what I thought. The Header Adapter Plate Cape-mae c / 20 USB pin for two 3.0 c/ 15cm worked perfectly, but I can not say the same of Painel frontal 3.5″ com Hub 4 USB slides 3.0.

The Painel frontal 3.5″ com Hub 4 USB slides 3.0 is mounted in a metal case with walls on both sides, which helps a lot in their assembly. Only the front, where are the four USB ports 3.0, é plastic. In the specifications of the box has the basics: drivers need not, hot-swap, etc. In the almost, taking advantage of the space, shafts USB cable 3.0, 8 screws (not saved here) and a Phillips.

The problem of Painel frontal 3.5″ com Hub 4 USB slides 3.0 is the same as I already noted in Front panel bay 3.5 "card reader and SDHC/MS/SD/MMC/TF/M2 4 USB slides: The USB ports can be used only with bus power or external power aid, provided by the source PC via a molex connector. The Front panel bay 3.5 "card reader and SDHC/MS/SD/MMC/TF/M2 4 USB slides at least could feed external hard drives without the aid of external power, but the same does not apply to Painel frontal 3.5″ com Hub 4 USB slides 3.0. He can not feed an external hard drive only with bus power, therefore, unless you want to use it only with USB sticks and other devices that do not require a lot of energy, you need to connect the molex connector to the source.

The problem is that the link to the MOLEX connector, my motherboard does not give any sign of life, the same way as did the Front panel bay 3.5 "card reader and SDHC/MS/SD/MMC/TF/M2 4 USB slides. Connect the power connector with molex plugs makes no LED indication that the motherboard is powered lights (Detached LED, power button light internal motherboard, etc.) and she does not care at all. If the motherboard is On First, and the molex connector is connected then there is no problem, but of course this would not be feasible.

This time I went deeper into the problem. I did some testing with the multimeter and realized that my first suspicion was wrong: the manufacturer did a good job to prevent energy coming directly from the source (via molex) enter the USB bus 3.0 Motherboard. But the reverse is not true, in other words, the Painel frontal 3.5″ com Hub 4 USB slides 3.0 allows USB bus power 3.0 is injected into the molex source. Perhaps the protection that prevents micro connecting with this leak is at the very source (one Seventeam V-Force ST-850Z-AF 850W), that does not admit find energy in one of its 5 V, energy which by the way comes from her own, that is really who is supplying power to the USB bus 3.0 Motherboard. She must think it is a short circuit and cuts all power until you turn off, correction or problem, and reconnect. Anyway, is a failed project Painel frontal 3.5″ com Hub 4 USB slides 3.0.

It was already shown that this Painel frontal 3.5″ com Hub 4 USB slides 3.0 no good for nothing, since I do not have USB stick 3.0 and my only interest was really connecting the external hard drive that has USB interface 3.0, but without the front panel connected molex, o HD nem ligava. But as I am stubborn, I invent to try to fix the design flaw. A diode soldered in series with the input of 5 V molex, so that the energy flow from the source to the Painel frontal, but not vice versa. And it worked! After my modification, the same source went on to connect with the molex connected. The problem is that every diode causes a voltage drop when forward biased. This drop is 0.3 V in germanium diodes, that is the model I was using (the alternative is silicon, that the fall is even greater, 0,7In). Essa is 5V to 4.7 V seems insignificant, but it is enough to prevent the HD can connect, as it happens when the molex is not connected. In other words, My modification was also useless.

To complete, one of the tests he was doing, accidentally encostei the MOLEX reversed in Painel frontal. The molex connectors are horrosamente something so planned that allow contact even before the connection is made, so that 12 V was fed into the input of 5 V Painel frontal and he died instantly. In short, this crap Painel frontal 3.5″ com Hub 4 USB slides 3.0 only provided screws and a Phillips screwdriver, and maybe the USB cable 3.0. The rest will all pro dirt.

Happily, this time it took for these two items arrive, appeared in eBay an option better, which is a Painel Frontal com 2 USB slides 3.0, that connects directly to the USB header 3.0 Motherboard (20 pins). Its operation is completely passive, then no error, it works perfectly with the external USB HD 3.0, feeding only with the bus. The purchase of this Painel Frontal com 2 USB slides 3.0 on the eBay is for an upcoming article. And recently this same Painel Frontal com 2 USB slides 3.0 also appeared in DealExtreme, with the only difference in the color of the inner cable, red blue traditional USB pro 3.0. This panel (is the eBay or da DealExtreme) is certainly a better option than Painel frontal 3.5″ com Hub 4 USB slides 3.0, but speak it in another article.

Hello, skooter, I like your review and I would take a guess that doubt encountered it. I bought a motherboard with front usb connectors 3.0 and rear connectors. I saw many offices that have usb 3.0 front but are only for connecting USB cables at the back door. Good, I want to buy a cabinet not absurdly expensive. Quero um Haf 922 and it does not yet exist version usb 3.0. I do not want to use any front panel but to take off the usb 2.0 and um link connector 3.0. This cable serveria for it?
