    Can my desk do a double/triple monitor setup?

    In all reality, there is nothing that hinders a computer from being on the floor, animals or not - especially if you don't use any bottom intakes. The only difference is how often you have to clean it from dust. And with a properly filtered case and positive pressure it is all pretty easy. I had a massive dust accumulation in the front filter of my R6 now a few weeks back. It was nasty! But that was because I did not clean the dust in a while. But the thing was; inside the PC, there was almost nothing. A little bit between the exhaust fan and the top radiator; I expected a carpet of dust, but nothing. That all said, it is obviously preferable to have it on the desk for lesser dust accumulation.

    What the point of getting a 27+ inch monitor.

    Moved from 22.5" 1080p to 27" 1440p in 2011. All of the sudden, the "ultra modern" 24" 1080p monitors at the university felt small and unuseful, when compared to the screen real estate of a 27" QHD monitor. I think in terms of height it is the sweetspot. Not too tall, but not too small. Have tried to sit infront of 32", and that is too much vertical space. And at work I only have my laptop screen + a 24" screen, so not impossible to work with. But at home, where I have two 27" monitors stacked, it is just awesome. What I don't see the use of, is 27" 1080p. Becomes sooo pixelated then.

    That carpet in your video doesn't look that bad. I believe you could do it. You could also put two small pieces of wood beneath the feet to raise the computer up a bit, or just a thin plywood board beneath the whole computer ontop of the carpet. Won't look super sexy, but would do the trick. Another option would be to just flip the PSU to take air from inside the case, and thus have no bottom air-intake at all. Third option: Remove the carpet.

    Difficulties calibrating AOC Agon AG271QG, please help

    Looking at your current setup, you seem to have a lot of space to work with imo. I would definitely move the PC further to the side on the smaller table to increase the space you have to work with. Then using monitor arms you can clear up a lot of space that the monitor stand otherwise would use. However, @it_dont_work tells you to put it on the floor and I have to agree in this instance. That would pretty much solve all your issues. I have () a 120 cm wide table onto which I have fitted dual systems (ITX + ATX), dual 27" monitors, speakers and mics etc. Anything is possible with enough will.
  6. Hello, I recently bought the AOC Agon AG271QG monitor. It should have the same display as the Asus PG279Q and the equivalent Acer monitor (can't remember name now). It replaces my trustworthy, but old Dell U2711 wide gamut photo monitor. While I understand, I should not expect the same kind of colors as that Dell monitor, I am somewhat baffled to how bad the colors are after calibrating. Even if I set the monitor to the same target color settings, I get a warmer yellow-reddish tint compared to my dell monitor. And non of the colors of the AOC seem to be as saturated, nor do I achieve the same level of contrast. Shadows/blacks on the AOC is not near anything that the Dell monitor pushes out. Now, the Dell is a 12-bit monitor (according to Dell), while the AOC is 8-bit. But should I really expect a significant difference? HERE IS A COMPARISON CHART. They still both cover 100 % sRGB, but the NTSC stats are vastly different. Can this be it? Or is it just the quality of the panel itself where H-IPS (Dell) outperforms AHVA-IPS (AOC) can't keep up? For calibration, I use X-Rite Colormunki calibration tool and software. I would really want some help with this. I can't stand the washed out and lifeless colors of the AOC-screen right now. Or have I just gotten too used to super colors after 7 years with the DELL?
  7. A big research company close to my place has gone bankrupt and are having a sale on their old equipment. One of them is a HP-server Rack with 3x 1080 Ti GPUs + 2x Intel Xeon 3104 CPUs and 16 GB RAM. The rack is purchased in October 2018, so it is basically brand new. In my mind, even if they've been on 24/7 for the past 3.5 months, they should be pretty much good to go. What do you think? They have not released any prices yet, and if it is too expensive then no deal (obviously), but if they just want to get rid of the stuff....
  8. I am planning an ITX watercooling build based around the EKWB aluminium kit: https://www.ekfluidgaming.com/ek-kit-a240g But the pump-reservoir combo that comes along with it is too big/bulky for my intended case. So I have thus been looking at this pump and reservoir combo from XSPC: http://www.xs-pc.com/water-pumps/x2o-420-single-bayrespump Does anyone here know what the internals of the pump are made from and if it will be risky to add this pump to the loop instead? As I assume XSPC targeted their pump towards traditional copper components, can I assume it is made from copper? Or will it be steel? Will steel be an issue together with aluminium? Thank you!
  9. https://www.lg.com/hk_en/monitor/lg-34GK950G Does anyone know here what curvature it will feature? LG does not tell on their webpage, and no reviewer has said that either after their CES/COMPUTEX coverage. Is it the modern standard of 1800R? I am hoping for a less aggressive curve at 2800+R curve, but I guess my hope is ill placed?
  10. So you mean, on start-up, I should just let gigabyte do its thing and when I do mundane things just be on gigabyte, but when I want to game, I should switch over to afterburner? Or is it possible to have MSI kick in on start up, and still control all the other things?
  11. I would like to overclock my Gigabyte Aorus 1080 Ti Xtreme. I tried to do it with the software from gigabyte. And while it seemed to work a bit, for some reason when I switched to a custom profile, benchmarks such as 3DMark and furmark cannot recognize the GPU anymore. Thus I want to use the "industry standard" that is MSI afterburner. But the gigabyte software takes care of not only the clockspeeds, but also fan-curve (and the silent mode so fans wont run on low temps) and the lighting settings. If I run Afterburner, wouldn't gigabyte's software then hinder afterburner? How do I do this?
  12. Hello, planning a deus ex-inspired build. Now looking for a motherboard that would look most Deus Ex-ish in its design. I don't really care for chipset or if it is new or old model. The asthetics is much more important. E.g. The case would obviously be a Fractal meshify-case because of the triangle-pattern in the front. For GPU, it pretty much should be a strix-card with all the angular work the fan shroud has. So far, I have been looking mostly at the Asus TUF z270 boards, as they feature the old-school tough armor look that TUF boards used to feature. But do you guys know of anything better?
  13. Naah. An okay model thay is more than enough for her use. I actually recommended the same model for her boyfriend a few months ago. https://www.currys.co.uk/gbuk/computing/laptops/laptops/hp-pavilion-14-ce0505sa-14-intel-core-i7-laptop-256-gb-ssd-silver-10180942-pdt.html *Recommended = he gave me a few options and I picked put the best of the choices. And HP has come a long way since their day of half assed laptops 10 years ago. And for drawing this should be more than enough. She even opted for the 16 gb RAM model to be on the safe side.
  14. Wow..... And now I get to know that my friend went ahead and bought one anyways.... Without telling me... So... Sorry for wasting your time!
  15. I shall return with the answers when I have them.
