    ARECA Owner's Thread (SAS/SATA RAID Cards)

    I have found areca to usually have very good compatibility with motherboards where they would work in boards that otherwise would not take a hardware raid controller. If a 1220 works in a board where an 1883 doesn't and you can't get it working in any other boards then maybe you have a defective...

    What are my options for a 50-55 inch 1080p TV that accepts 120hz input?

    Well atleast on the 4k displays you don't have to overclock the interface to do it as 30hz @ 4k = 120 Hz @ 1080p in bandwidth so your pushing the same bandwidth over the controller. The 39 inch seiki with the 50 inch firmware does perfect pixel doubling so you don't get the same kind of...

    Old Apple 30 inch..replace with what?

    If you have a good enough video card I would replace with this: http://accessories.us.dell.com/sna/productdetail.aspx?c=us&cs=04&l=en&sku=210-ADOF IPS, 4k, 27 inch, and not to crazy expensive.

    How do you use 1440p?

    If your saying its uncomfortable for being to small then you sir, have horrible vision. I am not sure else why you would call it 'uncomfortable' as although its not pretty big pixels are not what I would call 'uncomfortable.' I must be really full of shit if I say 3840x2400 is comfortable...

    How do you use 1440p?

    Like seriously... how far away are you from the monitor? it sounds to me like you don't have hawk-eye vision... I can use 3840x2400 on a 22 inch display very comfortably from 2 feet away which is *way* *way* smaller than 2560x1440 @ 27 inch. I can even do 3840x2160 on a 15.6 inch display from...

    top CRTs on part with FW900?

    Viewsonic P225F (22 inch), 127 Khz, 2560x1920@63 Hz, 2048x1536@79 Hz, 1600x1200@ 100 Hz. I had these back when they were new. I actually kept them until the 30 inch dell 3007-WFP came out mainly due to resolution issues (used to 2560x1920 so anything else was a huge downgrade).

    Connecting dual CRTs to two 980s in SLI

    I was kind of under the assumption he wanted to run 3d over the two displays. If that wasn't the case then why not just get any cheap video card to run the second CRT?

    Connecting dual CRTs to two 980s in SLI

    Sounds like you are kind of screwed if you want any kind of high resolution/Hz on both monitors while in SLI mode :(

    Connecting dual CRTs to two 980s in SLI

    yet in that video where it shows them on seperate cards it lists that as the 'wrong' setup and then shows a 'right setup' with them both hooked up to the primary card. Maybe its just a difference of being able to dedicated a card to physX or something or just an effeciency thing. My memory...

    Connecting dual CRTs to two 980s in SLI

    Looking at this: http://www.nvidia.in/object/sli-technology-multimonitor-in.html It seems to suggest that in LSI mode that all monitors are hooked up to the first GPU. You may have some luck with a passive DP -> 15 pin VGA adapter as it may allow RAMDAC pass-through to get a full spec'd...

    Seiki SE50UY04 3840x2160 50" TV ($1300)

    Pretty sure they only have to provide the source code if they modified it and only for the kernel. There is a good chance they did not even need to change the kernel and also the source of the kernel would not be good for much.

    New Supermicro 24-bay Chassis - Help setting up

    Get some of these with some molex Y adapters. It will help greatly with noise issues: http://www.bestbyte.net/zalman-zm-mc1-fan-multi-connector-4-fan-5v-12v-3pin.html?utm_source=google_shopping

    New Supermicro 24-bay Chassis - Help setting up

    I know I am not the OP but I thought I would give some input. I have done this with an areca and the 6 gbps expander in the supermicro chassis. On Areca it would tell me its doing 8x6 gbps links to the enclosure. I am thinking the dual linking isn't working with the HP SAS expander though...

    Bypass 400MHz VGA Bandwidth?

    Yeah, agreed. I was running 2560x1920 on my CRT and it was really starting to get diminishing returns because you start losing clarity but it was still usable. I was using a 22 inch ViewSonic P225F. If I changed the voltage to lower (it messed with the brightness/contrast but would make text...

    Bypass 400MHz VGA Bandwidth?

    I am curious why you would need > 400 Mhz RAMDAC. I mean hell the only time I ever used 400 Mhz ramdac was to run 2560x1920@63 Hz on a CRT. And even @ 400 Mhz stuff starts getting a little fuzzy at that bandwidth amount. What display would possibly take > 400 Mhz pixel clock over VGA?
