    Currently have a u2410 - would adding a u2412m be a big difference?

    I have been running in sRGB mode - I also don't have too many issues with the 2410 itself. Yeah, I'm sure there are better panels out there now, but I did drop a fair bit into it so I'd like to keep using it.

    Currently have a u2410 - would adding a u2412m be a big difference?

    Hey guys, I currently have a Dell u2410 as my main monitor but I'm looking to add a second. I can get a u2410 for 400 bucks from newegg/amazon but I was curious if the cheaper u2412m would be a dramatic difference? i.e. would the colors be so different that it would be noticeable and...

    Need help setting up a terminal (...?) server

    Okay, here's what I want to accomplish: I want to be able to use my main pc/any pc on the network (all of which would be Windows), use a program such as Exceed to remote into a Unix/Linux box. Instead of a graphical interface though, I only want the command line. From here, I'll be able to use...

    Need help on cooling - GPU's and CPU running too hot?

    But just to get reassurance - these temps aren't anything I really need to worry about? EDIT: Also, I've heard a lot of recommendations for the Gentle Typhoon AP15's, which unfortunately are out of stock everywhere. I was wondering if the AP29's were okay as well? EDIT2: I was thinking...

    GPU1 is directly above GPU2. I'll try switching them tomorrow and seeing what happens.

    Need help on cooling - GPU's and CPU running too hot?

    I've finally gotten something to monitor my temps and I think I'd rather not monitor them lol I have a core i7 2600k and 2x EVGA GTX570's. During gaming sessions, the CPU will hit 50-52C and GPU1 will hit almost 84C while GPU2 stays at 65 most of the time. I have a Corsair 800D using the...

    Need some fan recommendations

    I guess, is the stock Corsair radiator fan something I should replace or does it do a good job. It's quiet enough even on full power, but if I can get something else that performs better in terms of cooling, I'd be okay with getting it.

    Need some fan recommendations

    Hey guys, I have a Corsair 800D with a Corsair H60. The fan config right now is stock (fan in the pack is exhaust, the fans in the front are intakes, the H60 is attached at the top exhausting). I was thinking about doing two things: 1. Turning the fan around on the radiator at the top (and...

    First SLI build - want to build by end of month

    Got all the parts, should be coming this week. Got the case, CPU, and HDD's from Microcenter on Monday. Will order the SSD after I move (small enough package to make things easy). Definitely excited. THANK YOU ALL SO MUCH!

    Blizzard sending out free keys for World of Warcraft to subscribers

    Yep. Remember, the game is 7 years old now and still going strong. Cata brought a lot of players back. But WoW picked up pretty much the entire SWG user base and is afraid it'll lose it to SWTOR. Don't get me wrong. I doubt Blizzard is afraid of anything right now, but I'm sure they know a...

    Star Wars Galaxies finally dying

    2004 and 2005 were awesome cause of this game. I enjoyed the CU, I really did. Wasn't like pre-CU but obviously better than NGE. What angered me most was that CU came out in what, April? And then by October, BAM, NGE. I may come back to see the end and explore the cities once more. Really loved...

    First SLI build - want to build by end of month

    So I've been looking around, looks like mwave is the only place I can get the Intel SSD without having to wait a few weeks. But since that means I'll be ordering from another retailer (that, and I haven't had any experiences with mwave), I'm contemplating going with the Crucial M4 since they're...

    Haha yeah that was one option but I think it would be hard discriminating which games should be installed on the SSD...lol, I'm weird like that. But okay, here's what I have now: CPU: Core i7 2600k (Microcenter) Mobo: ASUS P8Z68-V PRO (Newegg) Memory: Undecided as of now, will probably...

    First SLI build - want to build by end of month

    Ahhhh interesting. Completely missed that all together and something I'm definitely interested in doing then. It seems like the 311 is specifically optimized for the Z68? If I recall correctly, the Gigabyte with the built in SSD has a 311 on it, correct? I can't seem to find any on Newegg...

    First SLI build - want to build by end of month

    See, I've looked heavily into SSD. I really like having all my steam games installed on my pc at one time that what I can go play it at a whim (and it does happen, I have video game ADD I swear). And I plan on building it in Maryland and there is a Microcenter about an hour away. So, it's not...

    Here sorry about forgetting it in the first place: 1) What will you be doing with this PC? Gaming? Photoshop? Web browsing? etc Gaming, HD movie watching, gaming, and more gaming 2) What's your budget? Are tax and shipping included? I don't want the entire thing including monitor...

    First SLI build - want to build by end of month

    Hmm, valid point about those questions - completely forgot about them my bad :( I'm on my phone right now but I'll answer them directly tomorrow. I'm hesitant to get an SSD simply because on my current 640gb HDD, I've used about 250gb of space for apps, games, etc. So I'll probably grab that...

    Corsair: 650D

    Hey Redbeard, I'm pretty sure it should but I just want to verify: will an H100 fit into a 650D? I know I will get the H100 cooler, but as for the case, it's between the 650D and one of the two new ones you guys debuted.

    HAF X + 2600K + Triple GTX 580 Water Cooled

    Any reason you picked serial instead of parallel? I plan on getting one of those this summer, and was wondering which one to get, hence why I ask. 4x2 = 8 ಠ_ಠ

    Are you skipping 2500K/2600K?

    I'm on an i7-920 an will be giving it to my parents this summer so I have no choice but to get it, unfortunately. I will probably also then upgrade in January 2012 or so, whenever LGA2011 comes out.

    Newegg 24 Hour Sale: Corsair Obsidian 700D for $139.99 FS!

    Yeah that's what I was guessing - that the much neater cable management would improve airflow quite a bit. My cables are all over the place as it is, by freeing it up, I feel like airflow would be greatly increased by default.

    Compared to an Antec 300 with a 120 in the front, 120 in the back and a 140 up top, it's definitely a step up, right?

    Is my GTX260 running too hot?

    Playing SC2 last night, I saw my GTX260 frequently hit the 70-74C range, it normally idles in the mid 40's C area. Is this too hot? Should I consider getting an aftermarket cooler?
