ASUS RT-N16 Wireless Router 802.11b/g/n up to 300Mbps DD-WRT Open Source support with USB Storage, Printer And Media Server
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Actually works, works really well!

Cons: Haven't had any issues with it yet.

Other Thoughts: After going through 3 routers in 2 years, this one has been going great for 2 years, haven't had to reset it at all.

GIGABYTE GA-H81M-DS2V (rev. 1.0) LGA 1150 Intel H81 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Cheap, supports i7s

Cons: Crowded, my 2 slot video card cooler is actually touching my PCIe Wifi card, but it works.

Need a compact video card to use the middle PCIe slot.

Not sure why they don't put the second PCIe slot above the PCIe x16 slot so you can use it.

Other Thoughts: I put an i5-4590 in it and it's running like a dream.

Didn't realize it doesn't support RAIDs, I thought everything did that these days...

Intel Core i5-4590 Haswell Quad-Core 3.3 GHz LGA 1150 84W BX80646I54590 Desktop Processor Intel HD Graphics 4600
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: So Fast!!
Low power usage
Easy to install.

Stays 37-39C when browsing internet, ups to 45C when playing games.

Cons: Price? But it really isn't that bad.
Wasn't impressed with the snap in cooler method, but seems an Intel system in general.

Other Thoughts: I was using an old Athlon II X2 270 because it's almost as fast as the AM3+ CPUs, just with two cores. I mostly run single thread programs so I didn't see a point in upgrading, but I needed a faster CPU.

Finally I did some reasearch, found what socket would run an i7 then got the cheapest quad core that fit in that socket. $45 motherboard with a $180 CPU that is much faster than anything AMD has and cheaper.
