Introduction

NZXT has become well known in the industry for its quality cases, and is highly thought of with reviewers here at OCIA.net for their ability to continually develop new designs that incorporate the latest advances and popular features among computer enthusiasts. In addition to their current case lineup, NZXT also produces several different types of accessories, from cables to power supplies, cooling fans to fan controllers, and lots of other case accessories as well. The item we have for review today falls into that last category, the IU01 USB Expansion module.


As NZXT points out, the IU01 addresses an issue common to most gaming PCs, a lack of substantial power and expandability from front panel USB. While it is not uncommon for motherboards to have several USB headers, cases often only have one or two sets of front panel USB ports to connect to them. This limits the number of devices that users can easily plug in without crawling around behind their PC, and with the popularity of USB devices it is possible to run out of ports entirely. Some USB devices may also have higher voltage requirements than can be provided from the motherboard through a traditional USB port. This is where the NZXT IU01 can really help.
