This review is from: Silverstone AEROSLOTS Standard expansion slots
Pros: Temperatures tend to adjust a little more frequently,
but by about a degree or so. I could feel the air
moving out the back of the enclosure. The slot
covers do seem to cool down the pci-e cards.
When the system is not as cool, I usually notice
small detectable glitches in audio from the sound
card, but so far I don't remember hearing that
As a note, It's important to point out that the slot
covers do seem to block EMI interference.

which is a little helpful, but pictures showing a diagram
would be ideal.

signal strength. I have not witnessed a single drop in connectivity so far.
Cons: After installing Windows 7 Pro x64, I did have trouble automatically connecting a couple of startup sessions, but everything if fine
now. It may be due to the fact that I installed the hardware
before the software which was against the advice of the manual.
The D-Link connection manager is nowhere to be seen for some
As a note, the antennas are very long and bulky but not really a
Other Thoughts: I'm just using Windows default Networking software to connect through the internet and everything if working fine.READ FULL REVIEW
