Not good product. It definitely needs extra ACTIVE COOLING, otherwise it will start a fire on your case. I am not kidding, after 2-3 speedtests (that's why we all bought it, to test out 10Gbit connection), it gets so hot you cannot even touch it!!!
There is a 1mm gap between headspreader and chip, filled with a thermal pad!
Just remove the headspreader and put a chopper pad in between or some good thermalpaste and its fine!
You expect any piece of hardware you test, to stay at touch friendly temperature? How is cooling related to reliability of a NIC? Did it fail your test? Did it fail to perform?
Yes, that's what I'm saying. It doesn't perform. It gets so hot to the point that it doesn't perform. At all. After 2-3 speed tests or when I'm downloading something with good speeds, it's dying. Honestly... And the cooling of my case is perfect.
