    Finally a little dream comes true :)

    After 5 years joyfully using the Samsung 245B it's time for a change.

    Thought about 3 screens for over a year cause of Eyefinity and Nvidia Surround.

    I could choose from:

    3 x 23" Samsung 1920x1080 (3 x 24" doesn't fit)

    Or

    1 x 27" Dell 2560x1440 + 1 x 17" Dell 1280x1024 (portrait)

    Came to the conclusion 1 big screen with a higher pixel density works better for me.
    Also cause of the viewing distance.
    What i do most is surfing the internet and gaming.
    So i think a 2560x1440 resolution would be great!

    Really can't wait :)

    Removing films, i love it !

    [​IMG]


    Eeny, meeny, miny, moe ... :p

    [​IMG]


    Took me only 10 minutes to switch the old one with the new one.
    Changing the old DVI cable to a new Dual link DVI cable took me more time.
    Need this cable cause of the higher resolution.

    [​IMG]


    Very useful, i could start using it right away for the pics of this update.

    [​IMG]


    Bling :)

    [​IMG]


    The menu

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]


    And time for a little test ..
    It really looks fabulous !

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]


    Maybe i won't be the last now anymore ;)

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]


    Still a lot to configure, but already looks awesome.

    [​IMG]


    And ready to go on again :)

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]


    All i want now is another Dell 17" or 19" in portrait mode (1440px) instead of the current Dell 17" (1280px)
    This cause of the resolution and pixeldensity, i want it a close as possible to the U2711.


    Conclusion :
    I think i'll add this to my list of special hardware of the last 15 years.
    Next to the Diamond Monster 3D 3DFX 4MB and the Intel x25m ^^



    Till next week ;)
    (a nice EK surprise !)

    To keep you guys updated ..

    Couldn't do anything this weekend cause of 2 little problems.

    First of all off course the wrong EK RAM Dominator block.
    Hope i can send it back this week for the plexi version :)

    Secondly, the Silverstone Strider ST1500 kept giving problems.
    Even after replacing the fuse from a B16 to a C16.
    It kept rebooting, sometimes after an hour, but also sometimes when booting.
    Tried all possible combinations with the 2x 25A for all the hardware.

    I could borrow an XFX Core edition 850W temporary (Nice thing btw full OC and full stress 1050 watts from the fuse)
    The Strider goes RMA, ordered something else back.
    Going for a "Single Rail" psu again.

    Also the 2 x 80 Gb Intel X25m 1st Generation ssd's are sold.
    Going to be replaced with something else too.

    So next week alot of work to do.


    The strider couldn't hold it :(

    [​IMG]


    Found this at work.
    I want to use it for the Reservoir, move it over the old RVS studs

    [​IMG]


    This is how ill be sitting behind the desk this week :)

    [​IMG]

    Ordered @ Highflow.

    I won one as well, my only qualm is I would have like to have seen 2-3 12v rails, but it hasn't let me down so far with 3 months of 24/7 operation on a 1039 watt load, so all is well IMO! :laugh::toast:

    I can't believe this. I NEED ONE SO BAD.

    I will eventually get around to making this and if I succeed, I will stamp a l3pd3sk logo just because how freaking inspiring this was.
