    Dell 2715 vs Asus MX27AQ

    Which would you get out of these? They seem to use the same panel and are similar, the MX27AQ is £40 cheaper than the Dell. I was going to get a Gsync 1440p IPS but I think I will just get a 60hz and get adaptive sync when it is cheaper and works with both manufacturers.

    Ultrawide / 21:9 on windows 10

    How well does windows 10 work with ultrawide monitors? Does windows 10 have any special ultrawide support / features? Or is it just the same as if you have a 16:9 screen? Currently you can snap windows to the sides and it will let you select the other half etc. Does windows 10 do anything...

    Panel manufacturing question

    The manufacturer eg. Asus, BenQ etc. uses a panel for example AUO, LG etc. Does the panel from AUO, LG etc. include the backlighting? Or is that added by the monitor brand eg. Asus, BenQ etc? Just wondering why the Asus MG279Q measures about 10% higher contrast than the Acer XB270HU, they use...

    How to get automatice voltage regulation AND surge protection at same time?

    The APC line-r voltage regulator does not have much surge protection, worse than a normal surge strip.... I need AVR and good surge protection, apparently it is not a good idea to plug a surge strip before or after the APC line-R, I spoke to APC and they said it is only guaranteed for 2 years...

    Automatic voltage regulator to surge strip

    I am going to get an APC line R AVR to fix brownouts caused by my refrigerator... I already have a surge strip, it would be a lot easier and cheaper if I can just get a IEC > 3pin UK plug adapter and plug the surge strip into the AVR, this would mean less cables / adapters I would need to buy...

    UPS battery usage

    If I had a UPS and almost never actually get any power drop outs, my power never cuts out, maybe once a year max, except when my refrigerator comes on it can make my DAC cut out for a second... how long would a battery last? Would I still have to replace it regularly? I it still charged and...

    144hz Monitor With Vsync

    I am trying to find out if a 144hz monitor using normal Vsync, will be the same, better or worse compared to a standard monitor at 60hz Vsync? Will it have frame doubling or any other problems that make 144hz with normal Vsync actually look worse than normal Vsync on a 60hz monitor? (If the...

    GTX 970 SLI

    Is Nvidia SLI still a lot worse than a single card? I want SMOOTH framerates, no microstuttering etc. Would I be disappointed if I upgraded to 970 SLI? It would cost me slightly less than a 980ti or an AMD fury card and in DX12 it should be able to use all the memory (7Gb) and possibly run...

    Haswell Cache Voltage

    Hello, Is the cache voltage on haswell supposed to be fixed at the same voltage at all times? On auto, adaptive or manual mode the voltage on my 4690k stays the same all the times, it does not lower multiplier or downvolt at idle. This seems odd as why does my motherboard have options for...

    Displayport > HDMI adapter

    Hello, I am looking at a monitor which only has a HDMI port, the HDMI on my GTX970 is already used for the TV, so I have 2 DVI and one Displayport free, what is the best way to connect to the HDMI on the monitor?

    1080p on 1440p Monitor

    Hello, I am looking at getting a 1440p 27" monitor, if I got a 1440p monitor (AOC Q2770PQU or LG) and find that some games do not run well enough at 1440p, what would it be like if scaled to 1080p full screen? Would it be a lot worse than running on a 27" native 1080p monitor? If I do not have...

    Asus P8Z77-M Vs Asus P8Z77-M PRO?

    I am looking at getting a 2500k and I am not sure if the PRO version is worth the extra £25? Considering intel loves changing sockets every year or so I am reluctant to spend a lot of money on motherboards. I plan to moderately overclock the 2500k to 4Ghz or maybe 4.4Ghz max, not bothered about...

    MX518 Polling Rate overclock?

    Is it safe to overclock the polling rate on MX518 to 500hz or maybe 250hz? Does anyone have long term experience of successfully using one at these speeds? Or have you overclocked the polling rate and broken the mouse? I like the G400 polling rate but much prefer the ergonomics of the...
