    ARECA Owner's Thread (SAS/SATA RAID Cards)

    I have found areca to usually have very good compatibility with motherboards where they would work in boards that otherwise would not take a hardware raid controller. If a 1220 works in a board where an 1883 doesn't and you can't get it working in any other boards then maybe you have a defective...

    What are my options for a 50-55 inch 1080p TV that accepts 120hz input?

    Well atleast on the 4k displays you don't have to overclock the interface to do it as 30hz @ 4k = 120 Hz @ 1080p in bandwidth so your pushing the same bandwidth over the controller. The 39 inch seiki with the 50 inch firmware does perfect pixel doubling so you don't get the same kind of...

    Old Apple 30 inch..replace with what?

    If you have a good enough video card I would replace with this: http://accessories.us.dell.com/sna/productdetail.aspx?c=us&cs=04&l=en&sku=210-ADOF IPS, 4k, 27 inch, and not to crazy expensive.

    How do you use 1440p?

    If your saying its uncomfortable for being to small then you sir, have horrible vision. I am not sure else why you would call it 'uncomfortable' as although its not pretty big pixels are not what I would call 'uncomfortable.' I must be really full of shit if I say 3840x2400 is comfortable...

    How do you use 1440p?

    Like seriously... how far away are you from the monitor? it sounds to me like you don't have hawk-eye vision... I can use 3840x2400 on a 22 inch display very comfortably from 2 feet away which is *way* *way* smaller than 2560x1440 @ 27 inch. I can even do 3840x2160 on a 15.6 inch display from...

    top CRTs on part with FW900?

    Viewsonic P225F (22 inch), 127 Khz, 2560x1920@63 Hz, 2048x1536@79 Hz, 1600x1200@ 100 Hz. I had these back when they were new. I actually kept them until the 30 inch dell 3007-WFP came out mainly due to resolution issues (used to 2560x1920 so anything else was a huge downgrade).

    Connecting dual CRTs to two 980s in SLI

    I was kind of under the assumption he wanted to run 3d over the two displays. If that wasn't the case then why not just get any cheap video card to run the second CRT?

    Connecting dual CRTs to two 980s in SLI

    yet in that video where it shows them on seperate cards it lists that as the 'wrong' setup and then shows a 'right setup' with them both hooked up to the primary card. Maybe its just a difference of being able to dedicated a card to physX or something or just an effeciency thing. My memory...

    Connecting dual CRTs to two 980s in SLI

    Looking at this: http://www.nvidia.in/object/sli-technology-multimonitor-in.html It seems to suggest that in LSI mode that all monitors are hooked up to the first GPU. You may have some luck with a passive DP -> 15 pin VGA adapter as it may allow RAMDAC pass-through to get a full spec'd...

    Seiki SE50UY04 3840x2160 50" TV ($1300)

    Pretty sure they only have to provide the source code if they modified it and only for the kernel. There is a good chance they did not even need to change the kernel and also the source of the kernel would not be good for much.

    I know I am not the OP but I thought I would give some input. I have done this with an areca and the 6 gbps expander in the supermicro chassis. On Areca it would tell me its doing 8x6 gbps links to the enclosure. I am thinking the dual linking isn't working with the HP SAS expander though...

    Bypass 400MHz VGA Bandwidth?

    Yeah, agreed. I was running 2560x1920 on my CRT and it was really starting to get diminishing returns because you start losing clarity but it was still usable. I was using a 22 inch ViewSonic P225F. If I changed the voltage to lower (it messed with the brightness/contrast but would make text...

    Bypass 400MHz VGA Bandwidth?

    I am curious why you would need > 400 Mhz RAMDAC. I mean hell the only time I ever used 400 Mhz ramdac was to run 2560x1920@63 Hz on a CRT. And even @ 400 Mhz stuff starts getting a little fuzzy at that bandwidth amount. What display would possibly take > 400 Mhz pixel clock over VGA?

    New Supermicro 24-bay Chassis - Help setting up

    Yes you can move your array to the new backplane and it should work and just detect the new array. As others said you have a chassis with a SAS expander. This means you only need one M1015 and one SFF-8087 cable to drive all 24 drives. The M1015 (flashed to LSI) definitely supports SAS...

    I am also curious. I deployed a bunch of fat-twin supermicro's that will take 8x3.5 inch hot-swap disks per 1u but each chassis is 4u (with 4 machines). I have never seen a 1u server stand-alone that can take 8x3.5 inch disks... well atleast not hot-swap.

    Samsung HDTV's @ 120 Hz

    Like I mentioned the only TV's that can do 120Hz without over-clocking are the 50/39 inch seiki 4k and the vizio 4k p series (both can only do 120Hz @ 1080p). The 120Hz mode is within HDMI 1.4 spec so and even HDMI 1.3 bandwidth is speced to be capable of 120Hz (but the mode is not part of the...

    Sounds like your video player is not using vsync if you are doing 30Hz @ 4k and getting tearing. I use mplayer2 on linux with vdpau and I never get tearing on anything. I also use mplayer2 (windows build) on my dad's machine running windows with -vo direct3d and I didn't get tearing on that either.

    What's the point of 4k if you scale up the size of things?

    Hahaha, yeah... There certainly are those benefits although with apples HiDPI mode you will see things were viewing images in a browser will be pixel doubling so its actually worse quality than looking at regular native resolution and other stupid stuff like that.... My issue with HiDPI...

    What's the point of 4k if you scale up the size of things?

    You are probably more less likely to have issues if your someone who wheres glasses with a recent prescription. I find most people are ones that don't wear glasses and think they have 20/20 because they can make out the 20/20 line with some effort when in reality they have 20/30 or 20/40...

    What's the point of 4k if you scale up the size of things?

    I agree. I am all about real-estate as well. To answer your question yes if you really have 20/20 vision it should be easily readible at 27 inches. Now for some people its readable but still 'uncomfortable for them.' I have 20/15 vision. I had no problem for years using a 22 inch 3840x2160...

    Displayport > HDMI adapter

    Assuming its a TV that is 1920x1080@60Hz this is probably the cheapest/best/easiest thing to do. If you are running 2560x1440 or 4k then you would need to use a DP -> HDMI adapter.

    Even for me on linux it correctly says 3840 x 2160 for me. What os are you on? I think newer versions of windows can do similar to what os X can with its HiDPI mode where UI is basically treated as 1/4th the resolution. I could maybe see it incorrectly detecting the resolution if something like...

    How big of a display do I need to be able to see the text in 4K gaming?

    The answer to this question is very dependent on what you consider 'readable' and how good your vision is. I have no problems with even 3840x2400 on a 22 inch display on an old game like quake 3 where the text does not scale (on the older versions) even though it was very small but this...

    Philips BDM4065UC - 40" 4K 60Hz monitor thread

    Actually its a bit more bandwidth than HDMI 1.4 and much higher pixel clock as it can lower to 6bpc and can almost run 4k @ 60Hz @ 18-bit color. I don't see the relevance though... There is no real reason for a monitor to have a DP 1.1/1.2 mode setting on it unless its MST. This makes...

    Philips BDM4065UC - 40" 4K 60Hz monitor thread

    I suspect that the phillips uses MST judging by the manual since it shows an option for DP 1.1 and DP 1.2 and I can't really think of any good reason to have that unless its switching between MST and non MST mode.
