Wavlink WN681AE AC600 USB Wi-Fi Adapter, 600Mbps Dual Band Wireless Adapter, 802.11ac, High Gain 3dbi Antenna Network Adapter, 2.4G/150Mbps + 5G/433Mbps for PC, Windows XP/Vista/7/8/8.1/10 (32/64bits) MAC OS

Pros: I have had trouble with a couple of other dual-band wireless adapters, but this one does a great job on my wife's Windows 7 PC. The signal is excellent and stable on the faster 5.8 GHz band.

Cons: None.

Overall Review: I have only tested this adapter with Windows 7.

Most Critical Review

ASUS A8 owners beware!

SilenX IXN-40C Copper Chipset Cooler

Pros: Impressive heatsink and fan.

Cons: Mounting ears are too long to fit the ASUS A8N-E mobo I need to fix; they run into other components. I would not consider this a major flaw except for the fact that the bracket is made from heavy-gauge steel and cannot be trimmed with basic everyday tools. I don't own a metal workshop or a grinder!

Overall Review: The offending bracket could be redesigned with notches that would allow snapping off the ends to shorten the ears for mobos like this one.

Pros: As before, incredible performance without breaking the bank or your electric bill!

Cons: STILL won't order a pizza for me. ;)

Overall Review: Folding & Home has a beta GPU client that works with the HD 6xxx cards now. I have been using it for several weeks and it is stable.

Great card!!

Pros: Extremely high performance without breaking the bank or your electric bill!!

Cons: Won't order a pizza. :)

Overall Review: Beware that the HD 6xxx series of GPUs are not currently supported by the Folding @ Home project's GPU client software. They are working to solve this.

Pros: This fan moves a lot of air and does it quietly!

Cons: I had to ask NewEgg to exchange the first one shipped to me as it made lots of rattling noises while running. The replacement was shipped promptly and is quiet; no rattling!!

Overall Review: Thanks, NewEgg!!!
