Depends on your case, if there is minimal airflow around your expansion cards, you should get the heatsink version.

I have one of these and could not get a good wifi signal 50-100mbps...both 5g and non-5g. I had to go back to using a router that I could connect as a client to get good speeds 300-400mbps (max provisioned).

It has two antennas and it helped a bit changing their direction but it was still not good overall. I'm guessing it is behind the computer which lots of other wires that may cause interference and also it is then facing the wall. The router is pointing to open space. Router and computer is around 60ft away from each other.

I wanted to add a note about Bluetooth 5.0 feature, which was mentioned only in the title and got lost in the great WiFi 6E debate.

If you own a higher end wireless headset which supports AptX codec, this bluetooth chip does support it. The sound quality will be much improved compared to the SBC profile supported by the older Bluetooth 4.2 chips in the vast majority of PC cards and USB dongles.

The Bluetooth chip on this card has to be connected to the USB header on your motheboard with the enclosed cable. It is not a PCIe interface. If you don't have a spare USB header on the motherboard, you won't get Bluetooth from this card.

Haha I have the same feeling of revulsion when I see the name.
Mostly the same thing here, but I must admit that I have some 3.5 inch hard drive enclosures (one for a 2tb, one for a 2x2tb) that have been unfailingly steady since 2011.

Wouldn't USB be more convenient and easier to install? Cost pretty much the same.

Thanks for the downvotes dummies but you ain't getting an Intel Wifi 6E chipset for $17.50 to your door.
So which is it, $35 at first, now $17.50. You have an amazon link for what you were speaking about? Btw, on the first page of this thread, there's an ebay one at $30, which is even lower while most on amazon are $40

link doesn't work, but searching for the keywords, most of those aren't wifi 6? And also they don't seem to have bluetooth. I need to buy a wifi enabling device so if there's any usb ones that have wifi6+bluetooth, feel free to let me know Smilie

Hard to mess that up though xD. In any case, I've not had rosewill so I don't feel one way or another towards it

Great to know, thanks Smilie And are there any usb wifi dongles that support wifi 6 (or wifi 6e) and bluetooth 5+? I didn't find any on amazon search, so I guess I'm just looking for confirmation

OOS for me with this non-heat sink version.

But the heat sink version is available for $23.99 when you use the same discount code.

I am not convinced that WiFi 6E will be better then running ethernet cables, which I just did all over the house.
Wifi 10 still won't be better than Cat6 cables.

Unless you are renting, run ethernet cables. It's what I did due to poor WIFI performance. It works so much better and gets around all the interference issues, etc. This way if I want to stream anything to a TV, it's all good. Plus if I want I can now add additional routers around to improve WIFI coverage to areas where it was poor before.

I was able to get my provisioned max speed when I returned to using a ddwrt enabled router to act as a client to the main router. This avoided running ethernet across my house. There is a short ethernet cable from the client router to the computer. I bought the card thinking wifi6 will be faster if it was part of the computer, thereby eliminating the short ethernet cable and separate router, but I guess the interference and orientation of the antennas cause too much signal degradation.
