    Have a AC-5300 running Merlim firmware.

    Looking to replace cable with wi-fi card on 5ghz frequency.

    Has direct line of sight to router of around 5 feet with only my fat ass in the way.

    Recommendations for best performance using PCIE 1x slot.

    Asus PCE-AC88. A perfect match for 4x4 goodness. Just make sure you grab the latest drivers off of Asus's website, to ensure maximum bug-free behavior.
