Works as Expected, Available Sooner Than Other Sources

Intel 9260NGW 2.4G/5G 300Mbps+1730Mbps 160 MHz Channels Bluetooth 5.0 NGFF Combo Wifi Adapter
Intel 9260NGW 2.4G/5G 300Mbps+1730Mbps 160 MHz Channels Bluetooth 5.0 NGFF Combo Wifi Adapter

Pros: - 9260 supports 160 MHz channels - Unlike 9560 the 9260 works without requiring 8th gen Intel hardware - Genuine Hardware - Early Availability - Well packaged

Cons: - None

Overall Review: Seller was able to provide this before most other locations had it in stock. Validated working with my router at 1.7 Gbps connection speed.

Latitude E7250 2x16GB SUccess

Crucial 16GB 204-Pin DDR3 SO-DIMM DDR3L 1600 (PC3L 12800) Laptop Memory Model CT204864BF160B
Crucial 16GB 204-Pin DDR3 SO-DIMM DDR3L 1600 (PC3L 12800) Laptop Memory Model CT204864BF160B

Pros: You can use 2 of these 16GB modules in an Intel Broadwell (5xxx) based laptop. Neither Intel or the manufacturer of the laptop will state this or support this configuration - mobile Broadwell does not officially support more than 2x8GB due to JEDEC timing noncompliance issues. This particular chip happens to use timings that seem to work with Broadwell. That being said there is no guarantee this will work with your BIOS. This will NOT work with Intel 4xxx line of processors unless they are stated to support 2x16GB explicitly. I have experienced no issues using ~28GB of RAM in Windows on 2x16GB of these modules with my Dell Latitude E7250 for about a week now. The other reviewer that could not get this to work simply did not read the manual or research how much memory their laptop could support. These chips max out the rate of mobile i7s (1600MHz) so they are going to be the best chip you can find for your laptop.

Cons: Doesn't make me dinner.

Overall Review: Read your device manual and check if your device can support this before you buy it.

Solid Motherboard

ASRock X99 Extreme4/3.1 LGA 2011-v3 Intel X99 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.1 USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
ASRock X99 Extreme4/3.1 LGA 2011-v3 Intel X99 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.1 USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: - Cheap - Supports Xeon processors - Supports ECC RAM - PCIe slots well placed - Plenty of USB 3, USB 3.1 Card - NVME storage is detected natively

Cons: - USB 3.1 in the board would have been better

Overall Review: I bought this because it supports ECC RAM and Xeon processors at a fraction of what you'll find most workstation boards charging. I have a Xeon E5-1650 v3 and 96GB (soon 128GB) of Crucial DDR4. PICe positioning allowed me to fit my Intel PCIe SSD, the USB 3.1 card, and 2 Radeon 280x.

Crucial 32GB (2 x 16GB) 288-Pin DDR4 SDRAM ECC Registered DDR4 2133 (PC4 17000) Server Memory Model CT2K16G4RFD4213

Pros: - 16GB modules allows reaching 128GB maximum - ECC but cheaper much cheaper than equivalent non-ECC - Cheap

Cons: - No heatsink though this doesn't matter much - DDR4 in general needs to be cheaper

Overall Review: I have bought 3 Units (96GB) and plan on buying 1 more to fill all 8 slots and get both sides quad channeling. These are going with a Xeon E5-1650 v3 in a ASRock 99 Extreme 4 motherboard and working great.

Were able to deliver the Intel 9260 wireless adapter before other places had it in stock. Works well.
