    Asus 39 inch 3840x2160 60Hz panel.

    Im getting rather impatient with this order. It shows stock for me but inexplicably, Amazon has not processed it or charge me for it. Says it won't arrive before Dec. 25th. Mind you I am buying it through amazon Export Inc. or something like that and not their normal store. Same method...

    Asus 39 inch 3840x2160 60Hz panel.

    Is there another adapter that will work? I can't seem to get my order from Amazon to process and it says it will ship to me no sooner than Dec. 25th. I tried MyUS.com for forwarding service since I'm in Canada and Accell doesn't ship outside of the US, they want $25 for something that is...

    Asus 39 inch 3840x2160 60Hz panel.

    I recently received the monitor and am using it. Thanks to houkouonchi and Tom the creator of SwitchResX I am able to get my Mac to run it in custom resolution otherwise I was limited to 1080p. Unfortunately I am only able to get 18hz from my setup so I had to order the Accell. DP to HDMI...

    Asus 39 inch 3840x2160 60Hz panel.

    Thanks a bunch. I'm going to see if it works on my current setup then get a new card, if need be.

    Show Your LCD(s) setups!!!

    lol @ skillet comparison. I love L4D2. BTW, I have the same Dell 3008. I added a Samsung 27" a while ago and will have a 39" Seiki. Pictures forthcoming.

    Asus 39 inch 3840x2160 60Hz panel.

    In light of this troubling finding, can you recommend a card that IS Kepler based? I don't want to break the bank. I'm just looking for a card that is compatible with my Mac Pro and still allow me to game if not at 4k, at least 1080p. My GTX570 can handle 1600p without breaking a sweat in...

    Asus 39 inch 3840x2160 60Hz panel.

    I got Amazon to readjust the price for me as it's on sale for $496 ATM. So I think I'm SOL. Without the adapter, am I stuck at whatever HDMI will give me? Not sure if the 570 is a Kepler. Guess I'll have to order the adapter and hopes its restocked soon. What's the difference between the...

    Asus 39 inch 3840x2160 60Hz panel.

    The SE39UY04 is en route to me and I'm even sure my system can handle it. I have a 2008 Mac Pro with a PC GTX570 which seems to run just fine under Maverick. I hope it will work but fingers crossed. Worst comes to worst, I'll run it natively in Windows and settle for whatever the Mac will...

    Question about 9800XT

    It's quiet compared to the fan on my R9500 Pro. The heat is still not very comforting. I had the Zalman heatpipe you mentioned on the R9500p, but it was also too hot for comfort, so I added the optional fan. System runs fine, but I really like to keep components nice and cool, for peace...

    Question about 9800XT

    Hello, Can anyone recommend a good heatsink/fan combo for this card? I think the fan is dying or is extremely quiet. I'm also not comfortable with the heat generated by the back plate as it's hot to the touch. Thanks

    400GB hard drive on preoder at buy.com

    Because it's uneconomically cool, not to mention spatially uneconomical :o I can't justify $400 for storage.

    What's the best enclosure?

    Best being subjective, but is it possible to get a slim form factor design, i.e Metal Gear Box with reliability? I've read a lot of reviews saying the MGB has faulty electronics with the board burning out or causing some other miscellaneous problems. I want to get a 250GB drive for mobile...

    Please help identify this monitor

    Chris, is the stand VESA 100 compliant? I love the stand more than anything else, and 18" is a little small. I've a 19" Samsung, but most 20 and 23" should also be VESA 100 as well. Did SONY release any bigger versions? It really is a sweet monitor, but after checking out some prices on...

    Making two LCDs into 1?

    Not worth the effort. The control board in the panels themselves are made to recognize one panel, one resolution. To do what you're proposing would require a new circuit board to feed the two panels and subsequent increase in resolution. If that's even possible to do, I would imagine it is at...

    Please help identify this monitor

    It's from the movie, Love Actually. I haven't been able to find out who makes that monitor or if there is a comparable stand like that. Thanks EDIT: Come to think of it, that keyboard looks almost looks IBM made. Monitor could be the same.
