    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.

    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

    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.

    I'm on an 18.4" Clevo P180HM (Malibal) laptop, i7 sandy bridge (2760QM I think), 8GB ram, single GTX 560M video card, 128GB SSD for system and WoW (with a 1TB for large data). So far, still fine for raiding, we'll see in WoD with the new models. Usually I upgrade every 2 years, this one will see at least 3, so I'm pretty happy about that.

    I use a Logitech G710+ (cherry brown switches), which just goes on top of the laptop's keyboard, and a logitech trackman marble trackball.

    Usually have the whole setup on a lap desk (ie a rectangular sheet of nicely finished plywood), but the cool part is it doesn't really matter where I am, all I need is internet and power and I'm good.
