Pros: I'm not sure what everyone else is doing with theirs, but i'm pulling 866 mbs from my basement on an old computer running windows 7. I couldn't be more pleased.
Cons: None, other than maybe it takes up a USB port - but the computer i'm using only takes older pci slots, so this was my best option. it works great. I'm not sure what all the problems are.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: NETGEAR AC1750 Dual Band WiFi Gigabit Router R6300-NAS
Pros: Superfast speeds. However, you need to know what you're doing to get them. Some obvious points - you can't get the 900 mbs or so that I"m getting unless you have either bridge (another one of these routers) or an adaper on your computer that is able to get Wireless AC speeds. I'm not sure why that isn't clear to everyone, but i know that is why there are some bad reviews. The latest review, for example, says he's only getting 200 mbs. That's because he's using the 2.4Ghz channel and probably doesn't have the proper adapter. With the ASUS AC66 adapter (which is sold out, everywhere) i'm getting a consistent 750mbs in my GARAGE. These new routers are amazing. My apple TV works flawlessly streaming 24GB movies, WIRELESSLY, with only about 30 seconds of load time. That's why I got it, and i've been very happy.
Cons: About the only issue I've had (twice) is that the firmware can get corrupted (netgear says especially when it is loaded wirelessly). When this happens (you'll know by a blinking power light) you have to call them and have them guide you through a manual firmware load. I've had to do it twice now, and i think i can actually do it on my own, if I had to again.
Other Thoughts: Great router, Netgear has been great (despite every tech having thick accents!).READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Noctua NF-P12-1300 120mm Case Fans
Pros: These fans are the quietest fans I've ever had. I use them to replace the stock fans on my Corsair H80 water cooling system. The computer is now 10 times quieter than it was with the stock fans. I was shocked at the difference. If you want more of an explanation see my review of the Corsair H 80.
Cons: About the only con I can think of is that the fans are a little odd colored. But I am using them with my Corsair H 80 and they are facing the back of my case, so I can't even see them. If you're going to put these fans in your computer there worth every penny, especially could you can hear them whatsoever.
Other Thoughts: My build:
Cooler Master HAF X
32 GB RAM DDR 3, 1600
Intel Sandy Bridge i7-3930K
Corsair H80 Water Cooler (with Noctua 120MM fans, a must!)
Two EVGA GTX 680 SLI
Corsair 1200 Power Supply
Intel 250 GB SSD (OS)
Raid 0, 9 TB WD Red (media) (three 3 TB drives)
