    it's kind of a sticker shock initially, but people who've been into computer hardware a while know that it's really not that much, a good monitor lasts you a long time, 10 years or more, spending more for a high grade device that you will keep and use a lot is actually a pretty smart investment

    I love my 1440p Asus IPS panel I have now but man I'm so tempted to grab that LG Screen, looks awesome but I'd probably have to grab a second 290x looks like I might be getting a couple of upgrades soon!

    Well I'm using a single 290x with it and everything is smooth so far I haven't even OCed my 4770k yet due to slacking and not buying a cooler I would recommend this screen the quality justifies the cost for sure

    Your free to ship me one anytime you want Though i'm still happy with my Samsung, hasn't failed me for the ~2 years i've had it and I got it from a thrift-store for crying out loud.
    If you must insist on using a non-sanctioned sitting apparatus, please consider the tensile strength
    of the materials present in the object in question in comparison to your own mass volumetric density.

    In other words, stop breaking shit with your fat ass.

    Might appear a bit expensive at a first glance but id say a high quality monitor is generally worth it if you have the economy to support such a thing, considering the average lifespan on these things. Spent ~750 on a 1440p ips that have been a lovely monitor so far.

    Yeah, my gf nearly murdered me when i bought the 29" 21:9 LG model (2560x1080) for around 600 shortly after it was launched (the non-input lag revision), it's a high grade monitor with a gimmicky resolution (other than a few ubisoft games no issues tho, lazy ports) and i love it.
    Many spend so much money on their hardware but the thing they're actually looking at is where they cut back on costs usually .. a good monitor is a nice investment honestly.

    As promised earlier, I'll provide a better photo once I have SLI. My second 760 arrived today and oh boy, zero tinkering required and games I play scale near perfectly with SLI.

    How much difference did you see performance wise?

    Very nearly twice the FPS on most games - haven't tried many yet.

    However, there is absolutely no performance increase in WoW multiplayer content.

    It's a Scythe Mugen 4. Pretty much an European exclusive, I mean there's plenty of them for sale in the states but the pricing isn't competitive.

    Well i am in Greece and in general haven't seen it used much here either, it costs around 50euros atm. I guess you've been happy with it so far since you still got it?

    I had some crappy LC Power, one rad 4 heatpipes, the CPU is cooler now @ 4Ghz, than it was with the old cooler, @ 3.4 Ghz.

    Idle-ing @ 37-40 C, but it is very hot in Serbia atm.

    Not much performance, i mean, it is a good cooler, but it looks way better, than it performs, as I will probably not go over 4Ghz, i got it more for its looks

    While its idle-ing, the cooler RPM is around 230...

    Just tested it with prime95, the cooler doesnt go above 1.1k RPM, and then it lowers it to 800 or so, max temp 70-71, wonder what would happen if i max its rpm using AI suite.

    Usually around 65-67 while running prime 95, even as low as 64, at some points.

    One strange thing, AI suite Thermal radar says CPU 33C, and HW Monitor says 40...

    Ya I am thinking of getting one might wait a bit for the price to drop. Was planning on getting it for photo editing instead of having 2 monitors side by side to multi task when editing.

    Sounds like a perfect plan for that. I haven't even done any color correctioning yet and just using the factory settings it looks great
    I just need a bigger desk so I can put my old monitor next to it

    Yeah, it was around 40 euros for me. In terms of performance sits between CM 212 EVO and NH-D14.

    Just got the last of my cooling parts today. Will post pictures when I finish my overclocking this weekend... But, here's my specs(I also use this thing for writing code).

    CPU: i7 4790k
    Mobo: MSI Z97-GD65
    RAM: G.Skill Ripjawz X 2133 8GB
    SDD: Samsung 840 Pro 128GB
    HDD: WD Caviar Black 1TB
    GFX: 2x Gigabyte GTX 660 Ti 2GB
    PSU: Corsair AX750
    Case: CM Storm Trooper
    Cooling block: XSPC Raystorm
    Radiator: AlphaCool ST30 280
    Pump/Res: XSPC Dual Bay D5 vario
    Fans: 4 x Aerocool DS Blue 120mm; 3 x Aerocool DS Blue 140mm

    So apparently I need a new motherboard....again. Stupid MSI makes shitty products. It's not cost effective to buy another Z79 1155 board so I am going to get an Asus Sabertooth Mark 2 LGA 1150 Z97 board and an i7 4790K in the next while. I just sold my GTX 760 so I will pick up the board in a couple of weeks and the processor after that. Overtime at work will justify the investment while still allowing me to put away my usual savings. Pondering whether I should get a new case as well. No point in having multiple SATA 3 drives and only 2 ports plus my new R9 290 isn't running in PCIe 3.0 mode. Might as well upgrade and use my hardware to it's fullest now. The USB3 header is dead on my current board and a few of the USB ports are fried which I need.

    I am also planning on replacing the Wind force cooler on my card with the NZXT Kraken setup, 75 degrees on load is rough on my room temperature.

    It'll still produce the same amount of energy, you won't notice a difference in room temp.
