-Great Signal Strength
-5GHZ AC WiFi
Cons: -Occasionally disconnects
Other Thoughts: I moved into a new place and couldn't physically connect my PC as it is in another room. I didn't have much at the time so I found this guy on a used website for $34, one that rhymes with SleeBay. I read some reviews and was very worried at first but I really had no better choice at the time. I didn't want to settle for a N or lower WiFi adapter. It auto-installed on my Windows 10 no problem and within seconds I was connecting and running. Connection speeds are great and even though I personally can tell the difference, it's almost as fast as when I was physically connected. I mount ISOs from my NAS with no problems and haven't moved Gigabytes of data in minutes. I get disconnected from time to time, maybe once per week but I think it's due to an overheating router in the warm summer, not the adapter itself. I knew heat might have been an issue so I have the adapter plugged into a USB extender, with it sitting high on above my desk. Just be sure to plug it into a USB 3.0 connecter or above as USB 2.0 has a max bandwidth of 450 Mbps and this adapter can do 867 Mbps on 5 GHZ.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Excellent air flow, flexible builds, very nice aesthetics
Cons: One of my 2 GPUs is slightly too tall and flexes the window panel a little, could've benefited with a little more width.. You can really only put in 4 120 fans with a micro ATX board, thermals aren't great if you plan on overclocking anything.
Other Thoughts: Put in an 4790k and two R9 280x cards. The cards are air cooled and throttle like crazy, the CPU is water cooled on an H60, overclocked, and barely stays below peak heat. I used rubber case feet to keep the cards from touching then used a piece of shaped cardboard to create a ducted exhaust for them and even then, it throttles on stress tests but not gaming. I'm changing back to a mid tower until I can afford to switch to a single GPU that matches my two.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Cheap, get's the job done. So far so good on PSU #2. Nice modular connections.
Cons: Never got mail-in rebate on this PSU or the one before it, Both Raidmax brand PSUs.
Other Thoughts: Bought this to replace another Raidmax PSU I bought at a local big name electronics store, which died only months after purchase. Both came with a mail-in rebate which I never got. The old PSU was under warranty and contacting Raidmax resulted in giving me the run around. I ended up just buying this to replace it. The second PSU is running fine with no issues but i'm disappointed in customer service and support.READ FULL REVIEW
