Works even on new system... with some minor effort

Steven O., Newegg
11 July 2011
  • Summary: If you're equipped with an X-Acto knife it's trivial to mod these to fit into DDR3 memory slots and PCI Express slots (x1 or above). Since I'm using this in HTCP / old-style non-glow-in-the-dark cases, I could care less about how they look.
  • Pros: Keeps dust out of your slots! I swear, sometimes NewEgg must have FTL transports! It seemed like this arrived before I even finished submitting the order!
  • Cons: Needs modding for DDR3, PCI Express slots

Keeps it covered

David H., Newegg
13 April 2011
  • Summary: see cons
  • Pros: Does what it is meant to do. Covers the PCI slots neatly and totally. Being black UV they are a blueish when exposed to the UV light, not bright but a clean look.
  • Cons: no PSIe covers but other than that, none.

XCELLANT

Harold W., Newegg
26 August 2010
  • Summary: These look great and are easy to modify to fit any slot set-up. Take advantage of this Newegg offer while they still have them. The color is great, they don't look like Lego blocks like a lot of these kits do. They look Kool with a blue UV light!
  • Pros: 1) Great deal from Newegg 2) I like the color. 3) Fit snug in slots, no problem with them falling out.
  • Cons: Not designed for a DDR3 motherboard*. *This is not a deal-breaker. Very easy to modify and adapt to a DDR3 MB. I have modified the fit for evey slot on a DDR3 890FX motherboard.

Dust protectors for the mildly OCD burdened

Scott F., Newegg
26 March 2010
  • Summary: Now,if they'd just make some for IDE and floppy mobo connectors :D PUUH-LEEEEZ!!! I'll give ya a dollar if ya will :D
  • Pros: Sweeeet...no more cleaning pci or ram slots! Gotta love that :D Easy,despite what others have said,to modify slightly for PCI-E slots. Im sure you could do the same for AGP's. Very nice UV reaction. If ya don't get a reaction,you either have cheap blue led's or purple (not blacklight/UV) cold cat...
  • Cons: Are you kidding??? Ummmm,they don't keep the rest of your mobo or fans dust free?!?

User Review

Chen-San L., Newegg
20 March 2009
  • Summary: It would be better if they include covers for PCI-E slots and FLOPPY/IDE connectors.
  • Pros: Look good, fit my DDR2 and PCI slots perfectly.
  • Cons: None. They don't fall off like some reviewer stated. Make sure you install them correctly. The motherboard I'm using is ASUS P5Q Deluxe.

Umm... OK. I guess it works

Brian B., Newegg

  • Pros: Plastic covers fit great on the PCI slots. Somewhat taller than I thought it would be.
  • Cons: Plastic covers do not fit on 240 pin memory slots... No covers for the smaller PCI slot.
