For the price of that monitor I bet it looks A-M-A-Z-I-N-G.......cool.gif


Actually for the price, Dell monitors are pretty good, especially the IPS ones. I got my U2713hm for around $650. Not a steal, but still better than buying a $400 korean monitor.

They also do a factory calibration. I use it next to my Samsung 21.5", and the differences in color accuracy are clearly visible.

Is there a catch to those monitors?

Warranty would be a big one....

 

Well I didn't really care for the Corsair c70 case I got so I'm sending it back.

I bought a Mountain Mods Pinnacle 18 instead. blink.gif

  • Glossy panel
  • Bad stand
  • Horrible/no warranty
  • No OSD
  • No Displayport
  • Fewer connections in general
  • Lower grade backlighting
  • No hardware colour calibration

A few things infact,

-- No warranty

-- Glossy display. No anti-glare coating or matte options

-- No control options on the monitor. 

-- Dead pixels. Although it can happen with Dell too, usually it happens after you start using the monitor (in other words, they never ship with dead pixels), and they'll replace it if >3-4 such pixels are dead/stuck.

-- Stability.

Pinnacle is a nice looking case, but it is a bit annoying to build in if you are using multiple watercooled video cards.

 

I sold my black 24 awhile back.


For the record the anodized MNPCTech aluminum stuff (grills, buttons, etc) all match the MM anodizing PERFECTLY.

Good to know. Thanks.

I ended up getting the 24 instead of the 18. More room for R4E.wink_face.gif

Multiple cards? How so? Seems like it would be super easy especially if you flipped the motherboard tray upside down.

I have the first I7 cpu, first Beats audio and first USB 3.0 in an laptop.

I have tweeked my ENVY 15 laptop so much I cannot let it go.

so it has...

Windows Ult 7 and win 8 dual bootable

it has an I7 q720 win7 4+4 core CPU rated 5.9 of 8

32GB 1333 RAM        rated 7.2

AMD Radeon 5830 w/ 1GB rated 6.8 both 2d and 3d

a Samsung 830 series 256GB SSD  rated 7.4

It gets hot so it has not only the three copper heatsink fans

and the laptop it sits on a 120mm fan

and a CPU cooler w/fan sits on top.

So I have a seperate keyboard

a LG scanning mouse

a Rosewill USB force feedback headset

Altec Lansing stereo amplified speakers and subwoofer

usb 3.0 x 7 hub

1 terebyte usb 3.0 HDD backup

120 gb SSD back-up drive too.

external bluray and dvd player

and the built in and an external camera

OH yeah

42" 1080P phillips TV from HDMI and 15.6 laptops display at 1920 x 1080

and that's just on my 96" x 30" desk

The real drawback is on a 9 cell battery at half speed

I get 45 minutes run time.

 

That's about it. I really need a GOOD pair of headphones.

If you flip the tray you'll be good to go, it is just REALLY close to the floor of the case so if you have 2 or 3 cards you don't have much room to route tubing and I personally don't use any rotary fittings in any of my builds.

 

Not a big deal obviously, just a nitpick for an otherwise sexy case.

post #1781 of 2002

After researching this build for a couple months I'm finally getting it together.
I just got done setting up the WCing loop so I'm bleeding the system and letting it leak test for 24hrs.
(sorry for the crappy pics. I'm working with a cheap Kodak EasyShare C182)

Had to replace the EK DCP pump in my loop yesterday since it was dying. New Laing DDC is much better. Also used a bay reservoir.

The tube routing is funky so I might revisit the loop with some 90 degree fittings in a month or so.

 

The new semi-translucent white tubing looks an absolute treat. Much nicer than the old clear tubing, imo.#
