    Possible to mirror 2560x1440 monitor with 1080p HDTV? (Only one will be on at a time)

    I have an Auria 27" that is running at 2560x1440 as my main monitor, and I was planning on adding a 1080P 39" HDTV to my room for a larger gaming display. Will it possible to mirror both without forcing the 27" into a lower res, assuming both won't be on at the same time? Or is it possible to...

    Best 40" HDTV that can double as a PC monitor?

    Hmm i'm trying to find the US equivalent. I had assumed it was the W series, but the bezel and stand makes me think it's the R series.

    Best 40" HDTV that can double as a PC monitor?

    I plan on buying an Obutto Ozone gaming cockpit and the included vesa mount will only hold up to a 40". I plan on hooking up my PS3 and my gaming rig to the tv.

    Auria EQ276W review ($399 27" 2560x1440 IPS)

    Anyone using this monitor on a Mac Mini or other mac with MDP? Can I just get a cheap MDP to Displayport cable and get full resolution? Or will I have to get an expensive Dual Link DVI to MDP adapter?

    How can I check to see if my CPU is running at its rated speed?

    Ran coretemp after reseating the hsf.. Min 48C, max 73C for core 0. Sound about right for an intel hsf?

    How can I check to see if my CPU is running at its rated speed?

    Yep. Shut down. I wonder how much damage it took. :( It's been on nearly 6 hours a day for the past 2 weeks, most of which is from watching HD movies, which thankfully the GPU handles. It just never dawned on me that it was a heat problem because there was so little of it coming from the case.

    How can I check to see if my CPU is running at its rated speed?

    I just remotely connected to my computer from work and installed coretemp. 105C at idle, and it's speed is at 1.2ghz. Definitely looks like a thermal issue and the CPU is getting throttled down so it doesn't burn to death.

    How can I check to see if my CPU is running at its rated speed?

    Airflow looks good. The comp isn't that old, and there is only a bit of dust on the cpu fan. The rest is nearly spotless. In my bios the CPU temp is shown as 92C, which if accurate is very high no? The fan seems to be spinning fine, so it looks like the culprit may be the heatsink bond. I'll...

    How can I check to see if my CPU is running at its rated speed?

    ok i ran prime 95 and I'm supposed to look at core speed in cpuz right? Well it seems to fluctuate between 500mhz and 2000mhz. I'm guessing something is wrong?

    How can I check to see if my CPU is running at its rated speed?

    I have an I3-540 in my HTPC and I've noticed that in one of my programs (XBMC) it's been running incredibly sluggish. I thought it was my OCZ Agility SSD (which is horrendously unreliable) so I swaped it out for a new crucial M4 SSD. Unfortunately, that wasn't the problem, as it still persists...

    Best way to connect powered speakers and subwoofer to my laptop?

    I've decided to ditch my desktop and get a laptop. I went with an HP Pavillion DV7TQE which now come with Beats enhanced audio out. I have a pair of M-Audio Studiophile AV 30's and an ASW-8 subwoofer laying around. Both are self-powered.

    Before I pull the trigger, why is this x-Rite Eye One Display 2 so much cheaper?

    Since I plan to get LED backlit displays, I should be looking at the i1 Display Pro instead right? Darn, the calibrator costs as much as the monitor I plan on purchasing :\

    Before I pull the trigger, why is this x-Rite Eye One Display 2 so much cheaper?

    Is the Pantone version exactly the same as the X-rite version? I'd hate to pull the trigger and find out it's an older model, etc. http://www.provantage.com/pantone-eodis2~7PANT09H.htm Plus there is a $25 rebate!

    Best monitor for photo editing on a $2-300 budget?

    I'm trying to spend around $200-300 on a new 22-24" monitor, and I'm not sure if I can get a decent one at that price range. It will not be my primary display, which is why I'm not going all out. I currently have an HP DV7TQE 17" notebook which comes with one of the better 17" notebook screens...

    Laptop with high quality display that doesn't weigh a ton?

    Here is what I would like to have, but I know such a beast may not be possible. 1. High quality display. IPS isn't necessary, as I'm more concerned about color and contrast then viewing angles. Something along the lines of the Macbook Pros/Air's TN display would work. 2. Either the...

    Need a 2.0 setup with small footprint.

    I was running a pair of the BB Insignia specials with my panny digital receiver and TSC 10" sub, but now that I'm forced into a jail cell sized room, I need to downsize my setup. I can either go with an active 2.0 setup and pair it with my TSC sub, or get 2 passive speakers and purchase a T-amp...

    Power consumption and heat on an OC chip with stock voltage?

    I currently have an E8400 for my primary rig. I just purchased an i3-540 and mobo to replace it. My goal was to reduce power consumption/heat and still retain comparable performance levels. I got the i3 combo for what the E8400 cpu alone is worth, so I figure I didn't lose much by making the...

    Which cpu for work, and which one for htpc?

    Well my work computer right now is a P4 2.8ghz with 2gb ram and it's a bit sluggish for my liking (running WinXP) :o I want to bring in my own Win7 rig into work.

    Which cpu for work, and which one for htpc?

    I have two intel cpus at home, a Celeron E3200 2.4ghz and a C2D E5200 2.5ghz that need to go into 2 machines. I'm trying to determine which one I should use for my work computer, and which one for my HTPC. Whichever one is going in the HTPC will need to be OCed to 3ghz as that seems to be the...

    Need a MATX gaming case with a small footprint

    I'm looking for a microatx case with the following. 1. Decent cooling abilities, as I will eventually have a 5850 in it as well as plans to OC the cpu to 4ghz. 2. Needs silent potential (ie: silent fans, hsf, etc). So that means no cases with vents all over the place. 3. Has to be able to...

    Help me build a low power NAS

    I actually don't need it to play hd files, just fast enough so that my actual htpc can stream off of it. It's purely for storage so that my networked computers can pull data off of it.

    Help me build a low power NAS

    My requirements are the following: 1. Low power usage 2. Ability to accommodate 6-8 hard drives 3. Enough performance to stream 1080p movies from 4. Cost is a factor, so I'm looking for more bang for the buck as opposed to flat out the best performance. I have the enclosure and I have...

    Hard drive spinning up and lags the computer every once in a while.

    About every 30seconds to a minute, I hear one of my hard drives spin up, at which point the computer begins to choke for a few seconds (videos get choppy, can't click the mouse, can't type, etc.) Is one of my drives on its way out? How can i find out which one it is without physically unhooking...

    How are those cheap Dual LCD monitor stands on ebay?

    Anybody running a passive setup on their E8400? (ex: Mini Ninja)

    Ok I just tried it out with the Mini Ninja and e8400 @ 3.6ghz and I got 40C idle and 74C under 100% load. Does that sound too hot? I'm gonna put the fan on the heatsink for now until I do a little more research.

    n00b question: Does changing FSB or Multiplier increase temperatures significantly?

    Yes I know, stupid question, but I've tried googling the answer to no avail. I'm fairly n00bish at OCing, but I do understand that raising the voltage will raise the temperature of the cpu. But what about bumping up FSB or multiplier settings?
