Super coverage!

D-Link Wireless AC 1200 Mbps Home Cloud App-Enabled Dual-Band Gigabit Router - DIR-850L
D-Link Wireless AC 1200 Mbps Home Cloud App-Enabled Dual-Band Gigabit Router - DIR-850L

Pros: Two things stand out: {1} Fantastic range on 2.4 ghz! I had no degradation of signal (n) after 30 yards with my laptop, even through a 10" adobe wall!!! Old router barely registered. {2} Operates almost cool to the tough. Other routers I've had have been hot buggers. --I like the setup process with no additional software to install. --5 ghz operated 4x faster than 2.4 ghz channel - up there with more expensive routers. AC speed also up there with the better units.

Cons: I knocked off one egg because of the huge N performance hit when operating in mixed mode -- G, N, AC etc. on same channel. The throughput of N dropped by up to 3/4ths!!!

Overall Review: Run your main computer/streamer on the 5 ghz channel, and use 2.4 ghz channel for all your other toys, it'll reach you at all your neighbors.

Mobo killer!!

Thermaltake CL-P001-AL12RE-A 120mm NiC L31 Aluminum CPU Cooler
Thermaltake CL-P001-AL12RE-A 120mm NiC L31 Aluminum CPU Cooler

Pros: This is an updated review after 3 months

Cons: There are no spacer washers for the back plate. Directions have you put foamed side of back plate directly on mobo!! The motherboard solder nubs poking up and other circuit board nubbins, eventually poke through foam to short out on back plate. I put rubber/metal washers from Home Depot which raises back plate about 1/8" -- perfact! I killed 2 mobos with this before modifying.

Overall Review: Other than the above, about the the only shorter CPU cooler in this price range.

Excellent quality - Unprecedented value!!!

ARCTIC P14 PWM - Pressure-optimised 140 mm Fan with PWM
ARCTIC P14 PWM - Pressure-optimised 140 mm Fan with PWM

Pros: - Quietest with best rad air flow of any fan I've ever used. - Inaudible except at full speed, and then just hear air move. - Like not having cable sleeving, as there is less bulk, easier to hide, less air flow blockage. - Truly the best value of any computer part on Newegg!

Cons: - Cabling comes out of groove where it leaves the fan, not securely retained.

Overall Review: - It is literally better than the $50 fans I have for most purposes.

Great compact design, cheap materials.

IFORGAME ATX Mid Tower Computer Case, High-Airflow Full-metal Mesh Design, Transparent Side Panel, Water-Cooling Ready, Magnetic Dust Filter, USB 3.0 Port, Compact PC Gaming Case without Case Fan

Pros: - Perfact dementions for housing very large cpu tower cooler, and my Asus 2080 Dual. - Bottom fans very functional on the hex mesh. - Decent looking. - Liked no fans to throw away!! - Excellent air flow.

Cons: - It really has a CHEAP feel/look, much of the metal is paper thin though the case is rigid.

Overall Review: This would be a SUPER compact ATX case if the materials were a more thick and premium looking. Using 1/8" neooprene to deaden 'tinny' sounds.

Oooohhhh Mmyyyyy ....... How about 6 EGGS!!!

Pros: -Even my audio quality from DP or HDMI is markedly IMPROVED!! Is this possible? -Coming from an OC'd 2080, this is the biggest jump in performance I've experienced. -Running Sniper Ghost Contracts 2 everything maxed, 144 fps, 4k, 56C!! Cooool!!

Cons: -I need to get some better looking pcie cables...............

Overall Review: Hock your wife's wedding ring, it's worth it!

Skip the MSI paid reviews...

MSI MEG Z490I UNIFY LGA 1200 Intel Z490 SATA 6Gb/s Mini ITX Intel Motherboard

Pros: + Thunderbolt (only reason to choose this mobo) + I liked the placement of the front panel headers by the front panel audio!!

Cons: - RAM slots and 26 pin PSU receptical were oddly very DIFFICULT to seat into them. - Cheaper quality than expected.

Overall Review: - Way over priced for quality. - Surprising low quality materials, light weight, runs hot, reason they need fan.
