    Looking for a replacement, 1920x1200

    Necroing this. Currently I have a BenQ BL2411PT, it's not exactly newest tech and when I bought it 24" was the top of 1920x1200. But now I see these: Acer BW257 bmiprx, BenQ BL2581T (hey that's suspiciously similar to my current one), Lenovo ThinkVision T25d-10, T25m-10 (I already have a Lenovo...

    Phantex evolv x vs LianLi O11Dynamic XL ROG Certified for new Threadripper 3970x build (air cooled)?

    Either the Evolv X or the P600S is fine. Front 3 x 140mm intake, top 2 x 140mm exhaust, rear 1 x 140mm exhaust, Dark Rock Pro TR4. You will be fine. You don't need water for this but you do need a TR4 specific cooler -- covering the full heat spreader is absolutely vital. kitguru tested this one...

    [???] use USB C monitor without USB C?

    Hello from the USB C Hardware subreddit. Ps. As I noted on reddit too but since it's inlined so most of you won't click, adding HDMI: if you don't want to pay the StarTech hype tax, this is cheaper and 4.5 stars...

    Something totally else: a 150CFM fan at 0.3 sones

    Yes this is not a PC fan and yes it's huge (well... it's 6") and very expensive for a fan but I thought it would be interesting to show what's possible -- this amount of air at this loudness is pretty much unheard of ;) Just in case someone is insane enough to integrate it as a case fan...

    Safe 4+4 converter?

    With high wattage CPUs on the market, desktop motherboards with 4+8 pin or even 8+8 pins are becoming more common but most PSUs only have one. On the other hand , SLI and especially triple and quad SLI are definitely dying out but the PSUs have a bazillion PCIe connectors. Is there a connector...

    Ebay (BIN): Quad port 10Gb Chelsio card: $50 OBO

    Kindly link to some of those please? Thanks! I found 3M long Twinax cables for $30 which is kind of ouch -- you'd need four, after all. I am new to this. Are you saying for example this cable could work with that card?

    Hot? Threadripper 1920x 12 core, 24 thread $399.99 @ amazon

    yes, threadripper is for multithread heavy tasks, say, video transcoding, not gaming which is still mostly about single thread. AFAIK the ThreadRipper 2950X is an exception: it is the fastest among AMD in single thread, about 20% below the fastest Intel single threads -- and destroys any Intel...
