    @Fierae, that looks asbolutely brilliant.
    Why the blue rings on the SP120's though, they have white rings in the box. Also there is 4 fans blowing in, 2 out. Is this done intentionally?

    They do indeed come with white, I was undecided, the white rings are sat by my desk. I may decide to swap them over just to see what they look like, but then again as the motherboard/RAM have blue in them, I thought it may compliment it quite well.

    As for the fans, positive pressure in the case is better, from what I've read. If you have too many fans pushing air out of the case, air will get 'sucked' in through all the cracks in the case to compensate for the pressure difference. When it is the other way around, air tries to find its way out of the case instead which is generally better.

    Until it started falling apart, and I got used to IPS displays.

    You must not handle things well. :P My friend who got a Sager (RL friend) has it still going and he does it for some real heavy-duty work. He makes 3D models and renders them and such. All with that little laptop!

    Build quality differs. Just because one holds up, doesn't mean another will. And the opposite. Which is why "You must man-handle your Razer/MSI/Sennheiser's (or whatever) because mine works flawlessly".
    Not everything will break because it has a chance to.

    And I expect shipping to Greenland plays a part-

    That's a fair point tetris, my only reasoning behind it is because my friend got one of the cheaper ones and as I recall, the one Inux got wasn't so cheap. :P But, you make a good point, especially about the shipping, thus I'll give Inux the benefit of the doubt and rescind my point.

    Mind if I ask how?

    I thought they each needed a dual link DVI to run at 1440p and don't support adaptors to Displayport.

    Are both of the DVI ports on one one of the cards dual link or something?

    Overclocking through the nVidia control panel.

    Not officially within the DVI guidelines.

    I think he was more wondering about how is Inux hooking up 3x1440p monitors when those monitors say they don't support anything other than DVI-DL and no DP to DVI adapters etc.

    I ordered the ones with DP, DVI & HDMI.

    As for your friend, I guess he isn't moving it around a lot. :P

    Thanks Tetris, happy new year and all that

    I was not aware QNIX made those, thanks, that info might come in handy in the future.

    You guys have such flimsy looking chairs. ._.

    This is my chair.

    Guys, brace yourselves. I'm going to show you my PovertyGaming XTREME build. It's weak, looks bad and is bad in general. Those of you who maintain a sick looking PC and are faint of heart, do NOT look.





    CPU: Intel Core2Quad Q8200 2,33 -> 2.592 GHz BOX cooling
    RAM: 1x4G 1.33 ghz CL-7
    GPU: EVGA GTX460 1GB OC'd to perform better than a stock 470
    MB: ASUS P5G41T-M S LGA775
    PSU: OCZ ModXstream 700W Modular
    HDD: Seagate Barracuda ST1000DM003 1TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5"
    Fans: What fans? There are none!
    Case: I have no idea, really.
    ... and a 23" Hhilips 236VL screen.

    A new setup coming Soon™ - not so poverty anymore, will post it as soon as it's built, will have some "proper" cooling, better cable management and some blue led fans as well :3

    Decided to go with a different case, instead of the I-BOX Virgo 914 with 2 blue led fans and a window I've ordered a SilentiumPC Brutus M23 Pure Black. Won't be as flashy, but it looks good nonetheless. Assuming everything goes as expected, I'll have my new cooler, mobo, cpu & case on 6th of January. Can't wait for the fps boost :3
