    Dual / external PSU?

    Ah, good to know that the adapter will work, and also why plugging the 6-pin in directly did not work. The GPU is a GTX titan (original), and the PSU, per HP specs, is a "925W, 90% Efficient Power Supply". Unfortunately there are no specifics beyond this. But seeing that this workstation can...

    Dual / external PSU?

    I have an HP Z640 workstation that has just two 6-pin cables for graphics cards (ugh). I'm looking to put in a GPU that requires a 6 and an 8-pin cable. How straightforward would it be to just power the GPU from another power supply? Things that won't work 1) plugging the two 6-pin...

    Windows 8.1 DPI Scaling Enhancements

    still, my ideal solution would be scaling based upon pixel pitch, which would obviously require specific hardware information, but then allow for the exact same scale across any given combination of potentially different multi-monitor setups.

    Asus VG23AH: The 1st Semi-Glossy IPS Panel?

    my 2 cents, having just bought the monitor 1) great review NCX 2) 3D performance: in my experience, you can actually sit as close to the monitor as you'd like (e.g. even 1-1.5ft away), it's just that your margin for error to avoid crosstalk is much lower.

    Seasonic M12II-620 for I7 3930k build?

    Usually I provide myself plenty of headroom on my builds, so I have no idea what I was thinking with this one. Anyway, two computers for my research lab have already been ordered with the following, and I need to know if the Seasonic M12II-620 PSU will be sufficient, as returning it will be a...
