Most Favorable Review

Maintains a very strong signal

ASUS USB-AC55 Dual-Band Wireless-AC1300 USB 3.0 Wi-Fi Adapter
ASUS USB-AC55 Dual-Band Wireless-AC1300 USB 3.0 Wi-Fi Adapter

Pros: Removal wi-fi module that can but inserted directly into PC for added convenience.

Cons: - Seems unable to utilize USB 3.0 protocol on the X99 platform even with all provided drivers installed. - Irremovable USB 3.0 cable from dock should have been longer (AT LEAST 6 feet)

Overall Review: - Core i7-5820K (Same results whether at default or overclocked) - Corsair Hydro Series H105 CPU Cooler - ASRock Fatal1ty X99M Killer - Gigabyte GV-N980WF3OC-4GD Nvidia GeForce GTX 980 GPU - Samsung 850 EVO 1TB SSD - Cooler Master V1000 PSU - Windows 7 Home Premium Edition (64-Bit) - Fractal Design Define Mini Chassis

Most Critical Review

Does not work on X99 platform

Rosewill RNX-N600UBE Wireless N600 Dual Band USB 2.0 Adapter
Rosewill RNX-N600UBE Wireless N600 Dual Band USB 2.0 Adapter

Pros: Works fine on the X58 & Z77 platforms.

Cons: Constantly drops the wi-fi signal & resets due to poor driver compatibility on the Intel X99 platform. "Customer service" was useless & could not offer any actual assistance.

Solid drive

Pros: Makes a great secondary drive without slowing down my SSD-based system.

Cons: None

Causes continuous system reboots at CAS 13

HyperX 16GB (4 x 4GB) DDR4 2666 (PC4 21300) Desktop Memory Model HX426C13PB2K4/16
HyperX 16GB (4 x 4GB) DDR4 2666 (PC4 21300) Desktop Memory Model HX426C13PB2K4/16

Pros: The black PCB is a nice touch & the tall heatspreaders keep DIMM temps below 60 degrees Celsius.

Cons: System WILL NOT SHUT DOWN when the memory is set to a CAS latency of 13. A timing of 14-14-14-39 1T@2,666MHz is recommended.

Overall Review: Other System Specs: - Core i7-5820K (Same result whether at default or overclocked) - Corsair Hydro Series H105 CPU Cooler - ASRock Fatal1ty X99M Killer - Gigabyte GV-N770OC-2GD Nvidia GeForce GTX 770 GPU - Samsung 840 EVO 500GB SSD - Cooler Master V1000 PSU - Windows 7 Home Premium Edition (64-Bit) - Fractal Design Define Mini Chassis
