This review is from: Linksys EA6200 Dual Band AC900 Smart Wi-Fi Router
Pros: Lots of wifi capabilities
no external antennae
Cons: wifi signal is weak. At first it was extremely unreliable so I changed the channel and that resolved that issue. But I can barely get a signal outside my house (driveway, porch), and it's a small house. Considering I'm using N I would thought it would have reached farther than the G signal on my old apple airport router, which did reach almost to the end of my yard.
Other Thoughts: Needs a signal booster if you expect to be more than 50ft from this router. I bought mine cheap because it was a refurb. Otherwise I probably would've returned it.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: - 16x10 ratio
- USB 3 ports
- Best OSD controls I've used, with customizable shortcuts is a nice added touch (I set them to PIP)
- Excellent colors
- Very sturdy stand, doesn't wobble or shake like many others.
- Stays cool (my westinghouse 24" put out a lot of heat)
Cons: - Refresh rate is a little poor for fast-paced FPS games
- Warranty on dead pixels is unacceptable
Other Thoughts: This could be a 5 egg monitor, great picture and easy to navigate controls, but I'm docking one egg because after less than a year I have two dead pixels in the middle of my screen. Like a smudge of dirt I can't clean off and it's a huge annoyance. According to Asus, anything less than 5 dead pixels is considered acceptable. Not in my book! My Westinghouse is from 2007 and still has 0 dead pixels, this Asus from 2015 and already has two, completely unacceptable!READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: CORSAIR Hydro Series H55 Quiet Edition Water / Liquid CPU Cooler 120mm
Pros: Quiet and effective. Easy install
Cons: It recommends you have the fan blow into the case over the radiator for maximum cooling efficiency. The downside to this is you'll find a lot more dust inside next time you open it. I'd suggest a micro filter of some sort in front of the fan.
Other Thoughts: At stock, I didn't see much difference in temperatures. But overclocking my 3770K to 4.7GHz reached about 70c at full load, which is still well within Intel's specs. Idle I had about 32c.READ FULL REVIEW
