A Killer E2400 NIC Ethernet Solution

The Killer E2400 NIC Ethernet

The motherboard is armed with Killer Gigabit Ethernet Controller, Killer E2400. 


Many people frown upon Killer NICs, but the new E2400 NICs is honestly pretty good. This expensive NIC will allow you to game online with less lag. Now the Killer gets traffic from the network, to the game, and back out to the network faster than any other PC network card. But I've always been a bit skeptical about the NIC as we say that lag is created outside your home network, e.g. in-between the router and the destination. The NIC can do very little about that, especially with the excellent Intel and Realtek NICs available these days. The sheer hardware design and next to it the software, is just really good though offering you a wide variety of settings and monitoring options. It is a lovely solution and the software suite is just grand AND you can shape network traffic on your PC and monitor it. Which is just great stuff. Below a couple of screen-shots from the software suite. 

Below default screenshots of the software suite including WIFI, this motherboard does NOT come with WIFI.
