Re: Tech Corner

I opened it when powered down and I found one cable that didn't plug into anything. I'm not sure if it's supposed to be that way or not. Here is picture.

Re: Tech Corner

The noise is constant revving similar to pressing gas pedal on car or like a vacuum cleaner. Quick rise and fall sounds. Maybe it is fan speeding up or slowing down, but AMD settings show fan not moving and I'm still hearing the noise. I didn't see any fan settings in AMD System tab. I'm starting to...

Re: Tech Corner

After reading this thread,I think it is just the game client problem. https://mtgarena.community.gl/forums/threads/7111?page=1 I'm going to stop playing that now because I might damage my brand new PC (in case I haven't already). 8| :( EDIT: On the other hand, I do hear my PC making a lot more noise...

Re: Tech Corner

I learned that when I use the display port that game (which is still in beta btw) doesn't do any more screen flickering. That's strange. Maybe it had to do with the graphic settings that were being used when the HDMI was connected. However, my PC fan is constantly running heavily when playing it and...

Re: Tech Corner

Yes I can test it with my old monitor, but I'm lazy now and just decided to uninstall game instead. :P I noticed another thing. When I connect monitor with Display Port included, I get different display options in my monitor compared to HDMI. For example Display Port as higher color depth setting an...

Re: Tech Corner

I'm having a problem and not sure what is causing it. Sometimes, when I am playing a game, the monitor flickers to black screen. The worst case of this was when I tried MTG Arena. While searching through card library, everything is fine, but when I play a match, the screen starts flickering every fe...

Re: Tech Corner

I did all that only to find out that it was already latest driver. ;| When I compare images with my old monitor and this new one, although the new monitor looks better, it also doesn't look natural. I don't think the colors are authentic (online shopping for clothes might be a surprise now). 8| I do...

Monitor tends to be strong on blue side on default settings. I'm using HDMI connection instead of the DP that came with the monitor.

Here is my PC naked and unpowered: https://s33.postimg.cc/im1d5m6un/IMG_0689.jpg There's two things I'm not sure about.

Re: Tech Corner

I received the monitor a few days ago, but because my PC build isn't finished I can't try it out...

Re: Tech Corner

I bought the Acer monitor I posted earlier and should receive it next week. I saw the display model of the 49" Samsung and it was wide, but vertically it was a lot smaller than other monitors. Also 1080p. I didn't like it. Tomorrow I'm going to buy all the parts. The video card I was looking at...

Re: Tech Corner

Well, I cannot give it my stamp of approval, if I haven't it on my table, so ..no . :P I guess that means I will have to buy it for you so you can review it for me. ;) Okay, I will choose one of those two monitors and here is the PC I'm building: CPU http://www.microcenter.com/product/505632/Ryzen_...

Re: Tech Corner

I've decided not to get AOC one. The Samsung you listed is about $600. Not too bad. The following Samsung is about $900.

Re: Tech Corner

Is panel type important consideration? I've read that overall advantages of IPS make it better than VA, but the main difference is IPS has better color accuracy while VA has better contrast. :| The monitor I was looking at had MVA panel. It also appears to be a replica of this Philips monitor: https...

Re: Tech Corner

So it sounds like it would not be good for gaming because it doesn't have free-sync and it might not be good for the long-term because it doesn't have HDR (unless unlikely scenario it gets added with firmware update?) That's a shame.

Any large sized white/silver monitors you recommend?

Re: Tech Corner

I'm thinking about getting this monitor for about $300 which I think is a low price, but maybe that price is too good to be true. Is it outdated or have any problems/limitations? I'm not sure what features for a monitor I should prioritize? http://www.microcenter.com/product/484158/C4008VU8_40_4K_UH...

Re: Tech Corner

Any problems a 40 inch (100 cm) monitor might present for general computer use? It is curved if that makes any difference.
