From fans and lights to cables and even Molex plugs, there are many types of modification equipment available. A person should be careful when deciding to mod their machine. There are obstacles that can cause some mod items to not work in all situations. These obstacles could include; not having enough Molex connectors, no Molex pin extractor, or finding out that the CCFL light doesn't fit in the location you want it to. Sunbeam Tech has many mod items that help with these obstacles, and even some items that go above and beyond the typical mod items. Sunbeam Tech has provided a good selection of their mod items for review, including: a Four Port Minibaybus (four additional Molex connectors), tool-less Molex connector lights, LED projector, Night Magic (bendable LED cable), and LED Case Handle. Let's see what these items are all about...

MiniBaybus Information:

The Minibaybus is packaged in a plastic snap-together pack. The unit itself was the only thing included in the package. On the back of the package are the installation instructions, which can also be found on the web site. If you've ever plugged in a surge protector or extension cord, then installation will be a total no-brainer for you.

As you can see, there isn't much to the unit. At the bottom is where you would plug in the Molex off of your power supply. The other ports are your expansion ports. This gives you 4 additional Molex connectors.

Once it's all plugged in and your system is booted up, the Minibaybus lights up. All of the Molex connectors are a blue color, and there are two other LED's next to the main power plug. A Green (5v power) and Red (12v power) indicators tells you the unit is working. This was the only issue I had with the unit, and it's a pretty minor issue. If you wanted to have a solid color for your case (I personally like blue), the green and red LED's are very bright. But if you use multi-color lights, this won't be an issue and will fit perfectly in your case.

Conclusion:

With so many components needing Molex connections, this unit will come in handy to power all those fans, lights, and other items. With this unit being priced at $10.99, this is by far the easiest way to add some additional Molex connections!

Pros:

Additional Molex Connections
Easy to use

Cons:

Little Bulky
Red and Green LEDS throw off single color case schemes
