    3yrs later I still had plastic on my EVGA 2080Ti Black

    If you’re asking if the plastic was melted by the heat, then no, not all. It was only along the edge and on so perfectly I could barely see it. As I recall my last EVGA card had the same problem, there was shipping plastic on the card I had missed for months.

    3yrs later I still had plastic on my EVGA 2080Ti Black

    I was blowing dust out of my PC earlier and I was taking a closer look at my EVGA 2080Ti and lo and behold I noticed there was what I thought was shipping plastic along the edge. EVGA does an amazing job putting plastic on their cards, it's hard to tell it's even there. It took me a while to...

    GIGABYTE AORUS FV43U 43 inch 4k 144 HDR1000 QLED monitor

    So it's been a couple of weeks and this display is amazing. I'm still not used to using a flat screen, so it looks curved back like a CRT (I know this is an optical illusion), but other than that for $600 this display was a steal. Much, much better than the 7yr old Samsung 4k TV I've been using...

    GIGABYTE AORUS FV43U 43 inch 4k 144 HDR1000 QLED monitor

    https://www.reddit.com/r/Monitors/comments/hawb4j/switching_from_curved_to_flat_monitor_screen_now/ It's funny, my screen appears bowed back (convex) from the center. I noticed it immediately but thought it was an optical illusion from my previous display being a 48" curved TV for 7yrs. It...

    GIGABYTE AORUS FV43U 43 inch 4k 144 HDR1000 QLED monitor

    I’m only using the FV43 as a dedicated pc display (I have a Vizio 85” TV in the same room) and I have a SB Katana soundbar so it works well for me. Plus I’m still on a 2080Ti so DP is the only way I’ll get 144Hz support. If I need a big screen gaming experience I’ll just use my TV. It’s...

    GIGABYTE AORUS FV43U 43 inch 4k 144 HDR1000 QLED monitor

    Yes upgrade the firmware. Mine was on F04, it took me a while to upgrade but I feel that F06 had resolved a few issues. It seems I got a stellar deal for $600 new from Amazon. Even though it will take me a while to get used to going from a 48” display to a 43” one, this one is so much better...

    GIGABYTE AORUS FV43U 43 inch 4k 144 HDR1000 QLED monitor

    Yes, I noticed that. The screen was lying on a flat surface but the screw holes still didn’t quite line up. Definitely a quality control issue. But they’re in enough and it’s standing flat so it really doesn’t matter. Also I find it interesting that on the calibration report the Blue deltaE on...

    GIGABYTE AORUS FV43U 43 inch 4k 144 HDR1000 QLED monitor

    Is it just me or does it look like screen is curved backwards from the center? It might be an optical illusion because my previous display was a 2015 48" Samsung 4k curved TV- made for a pretty mediocre display but it was big, this is more reasonable. I do have a few initial complains (just set...

    GIGABYTE AORUS FV43U 43 inch 4k 144 HDR1000 QLED monitor

    I was planning on going OLED but Amazon was selling this yesterday morning briefly for $599 which was too good to pass up.

    I bought a used LenovoEMC PX4-400D, what should I do with it?

    Thanks for pointing this out. Yes, I can go into the bios and boot from a flash drive. I just bought a 64GB small drive so I can put it flush against the wall on a shelf. I'll give it a shot- the PX4-400D has an HDMI out which makes everything so much easier. I also have some extra DDR lying...

    I bought a used LenovoEMC PX4-400D, what should I do with it?

    https://www.karma-group.ru/upload/iblock/926/Lenovo_EMC_PX4-400D_.A1635690A6414A46B83B91ADD251650F.pdf I was looking to buy a NAS and saw one of these pop up on eBay for $100. It's EOL, and unsupported, but even though it's a little old (2014) the hardware is pretty solid- apparently it's just...

    3080 Ti EVGA Notify Queue

    I'm on the queue for the cheapest 3080Ti. It's unfortunate none of their models offer 2 HDMI outputs.

    Gigabyte AORUS FO48U 48" 4K 120Hz OLED

    It wasn’t a review, just a commercial. He got a free display out of it.
