    Samsung Announces QLED 8K TV for Consumers

    1. I had mentioned 16 was the total in my post. (Also mentioned that many people only use 8). 2. There is a need to use one display especially for convenience. It's much easier to have a single TV/monitor instead of 16 different TVs/monitors for a home surveillance system. 3. There is always a...

    Samsung Announces QLED 8K TV for Consumers

    Except for surveillance software which can easily use 8K TV's right now. (Most VMS packages stream more than 8 1080p camera views on screen at the same time). Many people are sometimes only 3 feet away from the TV when viewing all the streams simultaneously. It's also not unheard of to have up...

    NVIDIA Setting The Stage For Something Big

    Oh I'm a believer alright...I believe the Vive and Rift can turn a persons face into a nice sweaty, stinky, colorful mess. Time to load up on the face gaskets!! Ewww and double Ewwww. Makes me want to take a shower just thinking about it. http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=Oculus...

    Bezel Compensation without drivers

    Anyone know if this is possible? (any third party apps, etc.) I have an Nvidia 6 panel display setup using 2 GTX 570's and 1 GTX 650ti. Since I can't have all the displays in SLI, I don't know if it would matter much to enable Surround to access the Nvidia driver bezel comp on just a few of...

    Nvidia Bezel Correction without SLI

    Hey Guys. I have 3 Nvidia cards powering 6 displays. Two of the cards are GTX570's and the 3rd card is a GTX650ti. Is it possible to use a form of bezel correction with this setup? I'm not using SLI for the 570's because of the slot configuration on the motherboard (a 570 won't fit in an SLI...

    eye strain and headache with u3011

    Many people have a problem with florescent lights. I had to take back my 1440p Auria due to this issue. Just do a search for florescent lighting and headaches. It's all over the web. http://www.steadyhealth.com/Fluorescent_Light_Alergy_t86498.html "There's a solution for part of the symptoms...

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

    Yeah, it's weird, if I move down on my chair so my point of view is more in the center of the monitor, I do notice that the right corner backlight bleed becomes less noticeable. But then, the upper right corner appears to have backlight bleed. Try this once on yours and see if you get the same...

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

    I picked up one of these over a week or so ago and I just had a couple questions about it. As others have stated, I notice that the lower right corner seems like it is brighter than it should be when the screen has all black displayed with nothing else. I'm not sure I understand this...

    1440P IPS displays are not thin. Why?

    Even though I consider myself to be a minimalist, I would never want to use built in speakers on tv's. Maybe occasionally on a monitor for certain reasons, like testing the speakers to make sure they work. :) This is exactly what I am talking about. Does anyone know who makes the new iMac...

    1440P IPS displays are not thin. Why?

    I have been using multi displays for a very long time and I think the thinner and lighter the displays become, the easier it is to deal with mounting solutions, not to mention, the smaller bevels\bezels help make multi display setups look so much more nicer. Less huge borders in between the...

    1440P IPS displays are not thin. Why?

    So the new Imac's are coming out, and the 27 inch version is razor thin. This is kind of why I started this thread. How long until we can get something this thin for our PC's? http://gizmodo.com/5953775/apples-new-imacs-are-crazy-thin " The new models are 80 percent thinner (just 5mm) and...

    1440P IPS displays are not thin. Why?

    I guess it's not that important it be so thin. I guess, mainly because the thinner usually means lighter as well. I ended up just picking up one of the EQ276W displays and after using it for a day it's not 'too' thick I guess. However, the bevel\bezel is way bigger than I would prefer. I...

    1440P IPS displays are not thin. Why?

    It's been a while since I've shopped for displays but I noticed that the 27 inch 2560x1440 Catleaps and the Auria EQ276W are ridiculously thick compared to say the newer 27 inch AOC IPS 1920x1080 displays. Is there something about 2560x1440 at 27 inches that requries these IPS displays to be...

    Dual 6970 enough for 7680x1600?

    You can add Second Life to the list as well, especially with advanced dynamic shadows and 512 meter distance turned on.

    Gigabyte P67A-UD7 Motherboard Review @ [H]

    I own this board. The thing I don't like about it is that the 2 x16 slots are too close to each other and so if you have 2 of them, you have to put them next to each other and that limits the amount of air one of the 570X video card receives because it gets blocked by the other video card...

    Gigabyte GA-p67A-UD7-B3 and Zalman CNP S9900MAX

    I finally got this system together and the Zalman fit perfectly. About a centimeter of clearance from the memory. It was close but not too close.

    Intel Xeon W3690 is the fastest?

    Holy Moly! That is going to be the perfect machine for Second Life. You can get the latest windows build right here: http://wiki.secondlife.com/wiki/Project_Snowstorm The W3690 is made for it, and in fact, is one of the only processors that can really handle what SL is throwing at...

    Zalman 9900MAX versus 9500A-LED

    Is Artic Silver 5 still the best thermal to use? If so, how come Zalman doesn't include it with their products?

    Zalman 9900MAX versus 9500A-LED

    Yeah, I decided to do that. Going to RMA the 9500A. Crazy shipping prices though. I wish RMA shipping was free. It's not my fault I didn't notice the 9500A was 5 years old until someone mentioned it. :) I just hope the monster 9900MAX fits in my Antec Sonata case (GA P67A-UD7 MB with 4 sticks...

    Zalman 9900MAX versus 9500A-LED

    Everyone keeps talking about the 212+. I just hate the way it looks. Besides, the 9900 lights up and it looks pretty. I know it's probably more difficult to change the fan however. Hope it doesn't go out.

    Zalman 9900MAX versus 9500A-LED

    Anyone compare these 2 coolers? One of them is 5 years old, and the other is brand new. I have the 5 year old one that I recently ordered by mistake. Wondering if it is worth the RMA or not to get the 9900MAX? http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835118074...

    Best 16GB RAM Solution for Sandy Bridge?

    Ahh. that makes sense. I think I've seen those BIOS settings as well. From everything I've read it seemed to indicate overclocking was the requirement needed and it seems you have confirmed that as well. thanks

    GA-P67A-UD7-B3 and Zalman 9500A-LED

    That is what it is starting to look like. I think I'm going to send the 9500A back and get the 9900Max. It sounds like a good cooler for the 2600K. thanks

    CPU bottleneck in games or not?

    You don't need to throw it away, it's just that 2 Sandy's in the same system would be more capable to handle SL's massive requirements.

    Gigabyte GA-p67A-UD7-B3 and Zalman CNP S9900MAX

    Anyone have this combo with all 4 memory slots filled with G.Skill Ripjaws? http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835118074 It looks like the memory slots could get in the way, especially with the huge ripjaw sinks.

    GA-P67A-UD7-B3 and Zalman 9500A-LED

    Thanks. I'm hoping to stick with Zalman air though. The H50 is liquid based. and I've previously looked at the hyper 212 but think it looks a little junky. Reminds me of the Xbox360 for some reason, compared to the Zalman's more streamlined sublime approach. Is the 9900Max really that much...

    Best 16GB RAM Solution for Sandy Bridge?

    How are you acheiving this? When I pop in my 1600Mhz memory in all 4 slots, it defaults to only 1333. Are you overclocking it?

    GA-P67A-UD7-B3 and Zalman 9500A-LED

    That looks like a good cooler too. What is the best reason to get this over the 9500A? Does the 2600k require a larger fan like that one?

    GA-P67A-UD7-B3 and Zalman 9500A-LED

    Thanks. I didn't know it was that old. I purchased it mostly on ratings, size, pure copper, and company loyalty (Zalman). Didn't realize it was such a dinosaur. After looking at the reviews closer, I'm seeing that they do go back to 2005, but many are within the past few days. No wonder nobody...

    GA-P67A-UD7-B3 and Zalman 9500A-LED

    CPU bottleneck in games or not?

    Indeed, SL is making a comeback this year. Mesh imports are happening very soon and a new CEO means SL isn't fiddling around. You'll be hearing alot more about it this year. But yes, the programming is bad, however, it is multi-core and has been for many years now, so it will use whatever you...
