    Best Airflow for CaseLabs S8S

    This is how I currently have my case setup and I'm wondering if there might be a better option. Particularly with the top fans. If I reversed the ones above the GPUS it would bring a lot more cool air to the GPUS but that might cause more hot air to go through the AIO. Normally I'd be...

    Power Outage Murdered My Monitor - 2560x1440 Replacement Wanted

    Had a bad storm last night, power went out multiple times in a very short period. One of (possibly two) my ASUS VW266H monitors isn't going to be with us much longer. It still works but you can tell it's dying. Picture is really f'd up, after a few moments it seems to normalize and will work...

    Need Replacement for ASUS VW266H

    I have three ASUS VW266H monitors and one of them is dying. It still works if you have patience but it seems to be getting worse and eventually it's going to die. I posted about it on the forums, some have suggested trying to replace internals or capacitors. I have no idea how to do this and I...

    Assassin's Creed III PC Delayed - The shock!

    Assassin's Creed III PC Delayed I know. I know. You are all sitting there slack jawed and amazed that this could happen. I mean, Ubisoft NEVER delays the PC releases of their games. I mean, it's not like every single PC version of a game they've released in the past 5 years hasn't been...

    Odd Performance Issues

    Here is an odd one. If my computer has been on for some time and I join a game (any game I've tried, Max Payne 3, BF3, ArmA II) my FPS refuses to go above 30 FPS, GPU1 never goes above 20% usage and GPU2 maxes to 100% If I log out of my desktop and log back in (or restart) and play the...

    My Desk + Custom Triple Monitor Stand - WIP

    A while back I posted some Google Sketchup mockups of a custom desk and monitor stand I was planning to build. I started a few weeks ago, just cutting the lumber and getting things situated. I took my plans to my father, as he is a carpenter with 30+ years of experience and has forgotten more...

    I plan to build a desk

    I'm getting tired of my current desk. It was a cheap one from Ikea I bought several years ago and it's getting to the point I just hope it doesn't collapse on me and destroy my monitors. I decided instead of spending a bunch of cash on a desk and triple monitor arm I am going to build one out...

    Portal 2 in Eyefinity Reticule Bug?

    Figured I'd ask here since there is a higher chance of someone from these forums running Portal 2 on an EyeFinity setup as opposed to the STEAM Forums (which are getting swamped right now) Are you guys/gals encountering a bug where your reticule/aiming cursor is not present when running in an...

    Monitor Numbering Questions

    For some reason Windows, CCC and UltraMon all show the numbers for the monitors as something different and I have no idea why http://img219.imageshack.us/img219/8448/displaynumbers.jpg Other than being a minor annoyance it really isn't hurting anything I am just curious as to why they are...

    Upgrade/Driver question

    When I switched from my 8800GT to this 5870, I did a fresh Win7 install with it. I want to avoid that if possible. I have two 6950's coming tmrw and I want to make sure what I play to do will work. Since I am upgrading from a 5870 I don't have to uninstall the drivers, I can just install...

    Buy 6950's now or wait?

    Rumor has it that AMD is releasing a revised version of the 69xx series cards that (for the 6950 at least) will remove the ability to BIOS flash them to unlock the rest of the shaders but improve other aspects. Rumor also has it that the GTX560 is coming later this month. Though it seems...

    Gaming @ 5760x1200 - 570 SLI or 6950/6970 CF?

    This thread is both for me and anyone else with similar questions... I currently have two ASUS VW266H running @ 3840x1200. I plan (in the near future, hopefully) to add a third, which would give me 5760x1200 total. I am wondering which would be best for gaming at the resolution (2x to 4x...
