Pros: The product cam with the patented Noctua ease of installation but, the temperature range from case to CPU was 8-C. It was 0-1 on the last Nocuta with twin 92 mm fans. Believe it, or not, the stock cooler on the AMD FX-6300 was surprisingly not far off that that. It was just too-loud for me revving up all the time.

Cons: The not sure part.

Other Thoughts: I would still recommend Noctua, just not this one. I wanted the smaller than 120 fan but a 92-mm in the middle did not seem like a good idea. That is also the area where good heat transfer is needed most, and the heat pipe design gets the plastic case of the fan for a helper. I use a Fractal Design-4 case, and a quieter computer stays behind the music from an excellent Corsair SP-2500 2.1 sound system.

Pros: Nice design with great customer service.

Cons: Not quite ready for Windows 10. And this turned to be my problem the whole time. Shame on me for not knowing this model motherboard is not Windows 10 ready. I had made the upgrade a month before, and was too busy enjoying Windows 10 to pay much attention. The board worked fine manually but, I had no idea what was going on with the excellent on-board 1150 audio.

Other Thoughts: A call to customer service resolved my issue. Motherboard utilities had to be deleted until a windows 10 version is released. It is all manual until then, and it is no deal breaker! The CPU multipliers have to be typed in manually, and AMD FX 6300-by AMD design-does not support above DDR 3 1866.

Pros: A fresh install with Windows 10 drivers from the Netgear site, and all is good to go!

Cons: Beat myself up for nothing.

Other Thoughts: It is a nice looking device that pulls 433 mbps from a D-Link AC 750 router. Definitely recommended. Wish everyone I knew had one.
