easy to install
long antenna to get the connection away from EMI
upgradable msata wireless slot
no driver needed on win10
fast 5ghz speeds.
on this card I am getting well over 100mbps. just as fast as my wired connection
Cons: slow on 2.5ghz
I have laptops from 2001 that get faster speeds than this card on 2.5ghz
if you do plan to get this, make sure you can do 5ghz if you want the fasted possible speed.
on 5ghz I'm getting a max of 120mbps
on 2.5ghz I'm getting a max of 30 to 50
Overall Review: over all. fast card and very good. allows you to have wired Internet speeds on the wireless platform.
Pros: Cools Ram, Chipset, etc
Stock CPU Cooler at full load - 65 degrees Celsius
Gelid CPU Cooler at full load - 58 Degrees Celsius
Stock CPU Cooler Converting on Hand Brake - 40FPS
Gelid CPU Cooler Converting on Hand Brake - 80FPS
Because this cools everything in the machine, it is a great fan for HTCP
Easy to install, if you cannot install this then you shouldn't have your tech status above 2.
Literally took me 30 seconds to install.
Very slim design
Nice bracket design
Thermal Paste included (only just enough for CPU)
Cons: Low air flow because of the silent fan
Requires the removal of the Stock back plate, and motherboard to install.
Overall Review: Great CPU Cooler, very nice design, and very slim.
I would recommend it to any low profile enthusiast
Pros: Nice design and nice colors
4 dimm slots
HDMI out works great
no issues whats so ever with the hardware
Click Bios 2 are amazing
very easy to overclock
and Bios can be ran in windows
Cons: Control Center is slow
SoutBridge Chipset gets very hot when you are on a full load.
Overall Review: My main issue is the South Bridge Chipset gets very hot, due to the 25MMx25mmx2mm size, and how thin it is, there is no possible way to buy a new heatsink for it or even mount a fan on the chipset.
Pros: Slim, durable, and looks cool.
it has a lot of space in comparison to most slim cases.
it has 4 rear slots for cards
comes with a very quite fan to vent the heat out of the top.
USB 3.0 and 2.0
3.0 can either go on a USB 3.0 slot or USB 2.0 on board
Comes with stands that are quite decent.
Cons: Power supply comes out of the bottom, although it isn't that bad, but if the cord were to break you wouldn't be able to stand it up anymore.
IO shield area is flimsy, it can bend easy when you put in your IO shield so be careful when putting in one
Its made in china? (heh)
Overall Review: Over all its a very nice case, The Inside, size, and shape are very similar to the HP Pavilion Slimline s5000
Although this case has way more of ventilation spots over the HP Slimline
I have yet to run the computer in the case yet. but I believe the temps would be similar to my I7 HP build
I7 950 Quad Core
ASUS Rampage 3 Gene
Gskill 12GB of ram in 6 slots
400 watt PSU
Radeon HD 5570
Scythe Shuriken Heatsink
The I7 build ran at around 45 Degrees Idle
My new build is
AMD A8-5600K Trinity Quad Core
4GB G skill ram in 2 slots
M500 Solid State Drive
no graphics card
I will be sure to write another review on the temp when I get the chance
Pros: Very Long Cord
What else is there? its a USB cord
Cons: Disconnects some times. Although very long, it disconnects with USB 2.0 and keeps doing disconnect sound every second on USB 3.0 until I adjust it, as if it wasn't made correctly for USB 3.0
Overall Review: over all it still was a good purchase, although there are issues with it. There are ways to get around these issues and continue to use the product.
Pros: This is a follow up of my last Review
the quality of everything was amazing HDMI 1080i its great
Cons: i got a broken dongle
and the program it comes with is meh
Overall Review: i was really mad about what i got at first
(as you can see from the last review)
i contacted AverMedia and they are shipping me a new dongle it was quick and easy. and if its the port well i just am going to have to ship it back to newegg
Pros: Amazing Quality in HDMI and in component
Cons: The dongle it came with didnt work properly. the Blue in port for component didnt work. so i got a faulty cable.
took 7+ days to get to my house when i ordered it
HDMI will not record my PS3 because it says its copy wright protected.
came with a Very horrible program that looks like it was made on windows 98
and you can only use that program
Overall Review: Very unsatisfied with the product. waist of $100
Pros: Great Quality
Perfect size for my Case
and best of all its cheap
Overall Review: makes my Slimline Upgrade worth more and more
Pros: Very Quiet compared to my old fan
Insainly easy to assemble.
(i child could assemble it in less than 30 seconds)
Cons: its really just Quiet due to the low RPM.
The fans air flow is nothing in compaired to my old fan
i have it on full power and the air flow isn't that great
Shipping took 5 days not 3
Overall Review: its a good deal for $14.
i was going to put it on my CPU but dont know if it will cut it.
