ASUS RT-N66U Dual-Band Wireless-N900 Gigabit Router, DD-WRT Open Source support, IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n, IEEE 802.3/3u/3ab

  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Worked well for the first couple of months.

Cons: After firmware updates, the router started dropping connections. Reboot router, and the router would work for a couple of hours before starting to drop connections again. It's now to the point that connections drop continuously even when it's rebooted. At first I thought it was my internet provider, however removing the router, and connecting directly to the modem fixed all the dropped connections.

Other Thoughts: Was great while it lasted, but for the price.... NO WAY. I'm not in the business to "RENT" a router.

ASUS ROG MARS760-4GD5 G-SYNC Support GeForce GTX 760x2 4GB 512-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card

  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Runs quiet.

Cons: Not as powerful as expected for a > $500.00 Graphics Card. Can't smoothly run FFX1V (FF14) Online maxing out graphics.
Drivers have caused the GC to crash. 4 Instances so far since installing a couple of months ago.

Other Thoughts: This was still an upgrade from my previous graphics card, however it wasn't the upgrade I was expecting for the price tag on this card. The PS4 outperforms this single cards performance.

4 out of 5 eggs Heat vs Noise 12/05/2012

This review is from: ZALMAN CNPS9900MAX-B 135mm Long life bearing CPU Cooler Blue LED

Pros: Fan does it's job. Very efficient at sucking the heat out of the processor and dispersing it to another location (depending on how you installed the heat-sink - Usually facing the backside of the case).

Cons: Fan came with a limiter to make it quiet. The limiter caused the fan to make a clicking noise for a while. I thought it might have been touching the heat-sink blades, but after inspecting the install, the suspected issue was incorrect. The fan blade was in fact mounted incorrectly between the two cooling copper blades by the manufacturer. The noise dissipated after around 5 - 10 minutes of use did not cause overheat issues or cause the fan to go into overdrive. I removed the limiter thinking it would resolve the issue, but instead of a clicking, it made a low thunk noise.

Other Thoughts: I only removed one egg as the heat sink does exactly what is intended, unfortunately it does so at a higher decibel than what is rated. Still an overall GREAT product that i will never leave out in my gaming / development rigs.
