This review is from: D-Link Wireless AC 1200 Mbps Home Cloud App-Enabled Dual-Band Gigabit Router
Pros: Feature rich and many options.
Love the dual band; i've got about 14 devices connected to this thing via either ethernet or wifi (2 smart tvs, x360, ps4, 2 phones, computer, laptop, vita, ipad, 2 satelite boxes, and some other gizmos) and i haven't experienced any bottlenecks.
QOS and Port Forwarding all work very well, and the qos is definitely letting me play games on my comp with minimal impact while other people are lolligaging on the network as well.
Coverage area seems to cover my house fairly well, on both stories. Only downside is the 5ghz wifi band-it loses some steam if more than two or three walls are in between the router and device.
There are definitely a lot of advanced features available that'll help serve peoples specific needs, but it's still shy of the wrtg options.
Cons: only reason i took an egg off, and it may be trivial, is that in order to access the options you have to log in and there seems to be an invisible timer that half the time kicks you back to the main screen even though you're active. Ticked me off a bit. other than that, i've been pleased with this router.
Other Thoughts: This was my first foray into DLink equipment. I've used a netgear router/modem combo for some years prior to this and the transition wasn't difficult. Definitely reccomend this product.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Arctic Silver 5 High-Density Polysynthetic Silver Thermal Compound AS5-3.5G
Pros: Seems to do a good job at thermal transfer (4770k + 80i)
Easy to Apply.
Cons: Doesn't taste real good =/
(don't actually try to eat this, i'm only kidding!)
Other Thoughts: Obviously, i have no scientific way to test this. I also have no time or patience to clean/apply 5 different compounds to check how it does, and honestly you shouldn't waste your time doing so either. At the end of the day or at the end of long gaming session, my temps are fine and i'm happy with it, and believe that you will be too.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Fast; 2133 + XMP Profiles.
Has been stable since i've used it. (NOV 2013)
Looks agrresive and goes will with a red build mobo like msi g65 for example.
Cons: My jaws hurt!
Other Thoughts: Some reviews here state that frequencies aren't right, etc. Points to follow: consult mobo compatibility and cpu compatibility chart. Enabled XMP profiles and i'm getting timimgs and speed as advertised.READ FULL REVIEW
