When doing network testing I was very happy with the Intel I211-AT NIC in the Crossblade Ranger. I’m glad they went with a high quality network card, this is another area where the Ranger stands out next to the Asus A88-Pro and nearly all of the other A88 boards. Most go with a cheaper Realtek NIC. While Realtek NICs have worked fine at home, we have had troubles with them under the heavy loads at our LAN events.

I hope everyone had a great holiday. Before we get to the weekend check out our review of the Asus Crossblade Ranger, Asus's first ROG FM2+ board.
