    100% Adobe RGB least expensive options?

    Thanks for the detailed recommendation of LG 31mu97, UnknownSouljer. I ended up getting a (new) ThinkVision P27u-10, in large part because my Lenovo credit, a Lenovo sale, and a coupon all stacked to yield a fantastic price. The ThinkVision isn't true 10-bit, though, only 8 + FRC. For my...

    100% Adobe RGB least expensive options?

    I need a monitor with 100% Adobe RGB coverage for pre-print proofing of photographs with significant areas of highly-saturated colors outside of sRGB. Not ready to commit to high-end Eizo or NEC, I am looking for the least expensive options. Any thoughts about or experiences with the Lenovo...

    Dell U2415 with 16:10 1920 x 1200 AH-IPS panel

    I am considering both U2415 and Z24i, so this information is much appreciated. Can you share any other thoughts comparing the two monitors? For example, the coatings? Thanks.

    HP Z24i, E241i, Z22i, E221i - differences?

    Spoke with HP chat, monitor specialist. According to him, E241i, Z22i, and E221i all use the same anti-glare coating as HP Z24i. He is "pretty sure" all are also non-PWM, like Z24i, and will try to send confirmation. Will post here, if I receive it. If anyone has first-hand experience with...

    HP Z24i, E241i, Z22i, E221i - differences?

    What are the differences in the panels of the HP Z24i, E241i, Z22i, and E221i (besides size, resolution)? Different anti-glare coatings? Also, PWM differences? The coating on the Z24i looks great at http://www.overclockers.ru/images/lab/2013/11/25/2/92_kristaleffect_big.jpg (second row, third...

    Z24i vs. PB248Q - how to decide?

    Thanks very much for your detailed reply. I considered that QNIX, but I tried out a few other 27" monitors and found the size to be too big for how close I will sit to the screen. Not a fan of glossy, either. Graininess sounds better than cross-hatching, so I'm leaning towards the PB248Q...

    Z24i vs. PB248Q - how to decide?

    Trying to decide between the Z24i and PB248Q. Is there anyone who has seen both monitors and can compare? My primary uses will be viewing scans of books, programming, and web browsing in a somewhat dark room. Some of the apparent benefits of the PB248Q aren't of interest to me -- faster...

    Running bigadv on xeon v2 only 32 threads (solved)

    Thanks. From perusing that thread, it appears that the problem with the Z9PE not supporting non-ECC when using dual 2600v2 was fixed in BIOS 5206. See http://www.overclock.net/t/1261060/asus-z9pe-d8-owners-thread/840. Asus FAQ discusses this at...

    Running bigadv on xeon v2 only 32 threads (solved)

    I haven't heard this elsewhere. Is this statement motherboard-specific or inherent in the 2600 v2? Is there any info from Intel about this? Thanks.

    X79 mobo reliability? Asus P9X79 vs MSI X79A-GD45 Plus vs Gigabyte GA-X79-UP4

    Thanks for the tip. It's okay if it won't work out of the box. Asus' Flashback is certainly more convenient than flashing the others would be, but that would be a secondary consideration for me after reliability.

    X79 mobo reliability? Asus P9X79 vs MSI X79A-GD45 Plus vs Gigabyte GA-X79-UP4

    I am looking for the most reliable motherboard for a non-OC 4930K that will run at 100% (all cores) nearly 24/7, cooled by NH-D14 in a Fractal Design Define R4. Would like five years of service. Will have 32GB or 64GB non-OC 1866 RAM, a low-end video card sufficient for running a 1080p...
