    42" OLED MASTER THREAD

    If I remember correctly, the electrician said 15 amps. Note that I do have a 32 core threadripper with an nvidia 3090 in it. Roughly the same specs I use for work. The other machine is an AMD 5800 with a 2080. We each have two 32" monitors (total of 4).

    42" OLED MASTER THREAD

    I have had my OLED 42" for about a month now. It is amazing in most respects. The one issue I am having is power draw. In our gaming den, if both my partner and I are gaming, we end up tripping the circuit breaker. If I use my Asus ROG Swift PG32UQX, we do not have power issues. The house is...

    42" OLED MASTER THREAD

    I just received mine yesterday and so far I am really impressed. I have mine back roughly 27" and so far that works pretty well. I have a stand on order that should allow me to push to monitor back another inch or so. As for the watermark I strongly suspect you have a program on your machine...

    42" OLED MASTER THREAD

    After reading the reviews and various feedback on the forums I decided to cancel by Dell 34" oled order and get the LG 42" C2. A little concerned about the size, but I do have a deep desk so that should help. I used a 42" 4k LCD for my day to day work.

    Dell Alienware AW3423DW 34″ QD-OLED 175Hz (3440 x 1440)

    I just ordered mine a few minutes ago. Sometime around June 18th for delivery. I currently have the ASUS ROG Swift 32" which is great and will still be used as my secondary monitor. I love the clarity and black levels of OLED and cannot wait to experience this on my PC, in a size that fits on my...

    PG32UQX - ASUS 32" 4K 144 Hz HDR1400 G-Sync Ultimate

    I just got one of these for christmas. Does setting the dynamic backlight option to 1, 2, or 3 allow the dynamic activation of the mini-leds in SDR (enabling higher contrast) per min-led, or is it like other monitors where it's an overall screen dimming effect based on content?

    Aorus FI32U - @ $950(USD} -- For Sale Now

    Been running with the monitor for 4 days and zero issues. There does appear to be an incompatibility issue between the FI32U monitor and the MSI Creator TRX40 motherboard.

    Aorus FI32U - @ $950(USD} -- For Sale Now

    Fortunately I gained a lot more than just the monitor not crashing. As a part of the swap I changed out to a heat sink that covers the entire threadripper die bring my temps down considerable (from 90 in cpu-z stress test to 65). I can also now run my memory at 3600 whereas I was stuck with...

    Aorus FI32U - @ $950(USD} -- For Sale Now

    So far it appears swapping out the motherboard from MSI to Asus has resolved the issue with the monitor. Still testing but a few ways I had of guaranteeing a lock or BSOD (changing refresh rates in the nvidia control panel) no longer lock the machine. Also a particular game would take about 2...

    Aorus FI32U - @ $950(USD} -- For Sale Now

    I was hoping we had different video cards. If it turns out the MB does not fix the issue, then my next step is to hand my video card to my other half and buy a new one. I may go 3080ti instead, though the price differential between ti and 3090 isn't a lot. For everyone else reading this saga...

    Aorus FI32U - @ $950(USD} -- For Sale Now

    Based on our experiences so far we have two things in common. The Monitor and the Motherboard. I am listing out my specs to see if there are any other hardware we have in common. It could be a general compatibility issue with this motherboard. Samsung 970 EVO Plus 2TB M.2 NVME SSD AMD RYZEN...

    Aorus FI32U - @ $950(USD} -- For Sale Now

    I have the same motherboard and also disabled my onboard audio. Did not think to disconnect the USB cable. If you see continued success with removing the cable I may have to give this monitor another try. I am also replacing my motherboard today with the Asus Zenith II Extreme Alpha (what is up...

    Aorus FI32U - @ $950(USD} -- For Sale Now

    I noticed the 120hz issue as well. It helped, for a while. A few days later I started to getting random hangs and BSODs, to the point it corrupted my win10 installation. The final straw was in I locked in the bios. Since I have gone back to my previous monitor, zero issues for close to a week now.

    Aorus FI32U - @ $950(USD} -- For Sale Now

    Hi! Earlier I posted a concern that the FI32U was causing my threadripper machine to blue screen. So far I am convinced it's some bad interaction between the monitor and video card. I can use my LG 38" widescreen without issue, waking from sleep works fine, no random locks or blue screens, even...
