    Yeah, main downside is trying to cool two cards in this case. Zero side venting means my GPUs do get a bit warm.

    And $275 is a great price on that monitor. I got my first at $262 and that was *with* the employee discount.

    :laugh: Yeah, they had a deal that I could just not refuse. THen the cancelled the order on me, telling me the lead time was too long, and didn't even let me know they cancelled it. I had to call them up and re-order, adn tel lthe mthat that reasoning was BS, becuase it clearly stated on the webpage that the lead time was three weeks, instead of the 1-2 days that some Dell products have. What a screw-up...:shadedshu

    My VGAs run a bit hot as well, but they aren't throttling, so I don't care too much.

    Actually, it's fantastic for gaming. The best example of that is in BF3, on Firestorm. With the old monitors, the glare from the sun was one big wide white blur, obscuring view. WIth the U2412M, that big huge glare turns into individual rays of light, and the obscuring effect just doesn't exist like it did before.


    I'm not sure if that's beucase it's an IPS panel, or the LED backlighting, because overall the monitor is much brighter than my older monitor. I'm working on reviews, of course, and this monitor lets me see that a few of my pictures are too dark, and I'm working right now to replace them wit hbetter pics. I could NOT be happier with this purchase, for my uses.

    Building on that, this review is pretty comprehensive: http://www.tftcentral.co.uk/reviews/dell_u2412m.htm

    Low motion blur and very low input lag. It's pretty darn good for gaming.

    Another happy U2412M user here :D Really is a heck of a monitor for nearly every task- and you can regularly find them on sale. I almost feel bad for how cheap I was able to get mine :laugh:

    Build a shelf to go in front of the PSU and hide that shit :) With your (USB stick comes to mind) modding skills it should be a breeze ;)

    how about running 24 pins cable infront of board and put the rest cable in 5,25 inch bay
    running front panel cables behind 3,5 slots, maybe you need to make a hook to keep the cable
    and make small loop sata cables :toast:

    Gratz. Maaan, that sound card is ancient ;). I have always liked the bling-stuff. I mean it has a cool shroud, but apart from that it's getting outdated a little bit :))) time for Creative Recon 3D, may be? :p

    nice idea, the 24pin makes the back have no space left for the rest. instead of the 5.25". i
    was thinking of putting in the removable HDD cage and putting the not needed cables there.​

    Mjkmike sent the above bundle to me as a gift, plus a Scythe Yasya cooler too :respect: :respect: :respect:
    And what's more, the bundle is already oc'd @ 4Ghz so hopefully I'll have no stability issues.

    dont those gigabyte badges on the heatsinks decrease their efficiency? they are passive and those badges seem to block the top of the heat sinks!

    NOT really...they tend to channelize the airflow..

    ^^that was the idea if gigabyte behind it...not saying they works :p:p
    and basically as with every setup the air generally goes up to top of the case regardless of whats in there...very ineffective heat-sink designs.
