    Never use ISP DNS they are notoriously bad (at least here in the UK), I'm liking this one so far but I don't think there is much in it between this one and google which I was previously using.

    I would recommend, yes. With this or Google, and others, you avoid an ISP "trick" where invalid addresses (the 404 error) are possibly diverted by the ISP to serve their purposes (marketing, ads, etc.). I've been running this now for a few days, and it's seems quicker than Google, but then again it gets to be subjective. They are easy to flip back and forth, though, so try it out and get your own feeling. One thing I would recommend that I do, habit mostly, is after changing run ipconfig /flushdns at an Admin command prompt. It clears DNS cache so no possible conflicts or leftovers. They usually expire in 24-48 hours, but it's a quick step.

    I am staying with OpenDNS. For my location it is the fastest of all.

    I am using Cloudflare still for one reason. I noticed the day after I started using it, that my card feed on my android did not reflect half of what I saw on the PC earlier in the day. Google was using my DNS to fill my card feed. I read the card feed later at night when off the PC. It sure is nice not to read about the same stuff unless I google something.

    One big positive noticed:

    MSI's site loads much faster(I mean when you're looking at hardware) with Cloudflare.
    It usually has a red loading line at the top, and as you scroll down, the page jumps back up when it finishes loading.
