ASUS PB298Q 29
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: less than 1 day

Pros: Just got it today. The UPS guy was carrying it by the handle on the box so it is probably less likely to be "dropped" onto the porch! Excellent packaging! Super easy installation of stand and every cable you could possibly need is included. Super bright out of the box. Still need to mess with all of the settings. Not a single dead or stuck pixel!!! 2560x1080 seems to run as fast and cool as 1920x1080 with my WCed 6990. 1fps slower and 1C hotter in FurMark 1.9. No page tearing, lag, or color problems. Out of 5 games I tried so far, only 1 needed a .cfg mod for 2560. DDO works as planned (Windowed and Wiki on the same monitor). Photo editing is awesome. I love it except for the Con below

Cons: Light bleed is heavy duty in the lower left hand corner on the particular monitor I received. I'd say about an 8"Hx5"W patch unless I am looking at it from desk level with the monitor tilted up. This really bothers me because most of the software I use and the photo editing I do is with dark backgrounds or scenes + I always game with the lights off.

Other Thoughts: I might send this one back, I might not. The $559.00 doesn't bother me, light bleed does. Other than that, this is the most beautiful screen I've ever laid my eyes on or used. I might update later. Until then.....

G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 2133 (PC3 17000) Desktop Memory Model F3-17000CL9D-8GBXM

  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: I bought 4 sets of this memory (32gb) for $271 + I received (4) G.Skill 4gb MicroSD cards. What a deal!!! I think quad sets are marketing hype. If anything ever happens to say, 1 DIMM, you have to send in all four. These run flawlessly at rated speeds and timings. Tops the charts in AIDA64 & Sandra benchmarks. With a massive jump in capacity (8gb to 32gb), Vantage jumps about 1500 P-Score and 3DMark11 about 500 P-Score. Not to mention turning off page file isn't a worry at all and I can run a very large RAM Disk for music and video editing.

Cons: None. This is the best memory you can buy for the price. Looks pretty cool too!! Matches my P9x79 Pro nicely!!!

Other Thoughts: Asus P9x79 Pro
Intel 3930K + EK Supreme HF
G.Skill 32gb 2133Mhz
xFx HD6990 + EK FC-6990
Silverstone Zeus 1200W 95A Single Rail (Switch off)
Corsair 800D
1 SSD, 4 HDD, 2 MCP655, Feser Rads, EK Reservoirs, etc.

Above shows an expensive, addictive hobby that keeps me sane. No different than collecting antiques, building cars, buying clothes, going out to eat, drinking $5 coffee everyday. Whatever makes you happy, RIGHT?

5 out of 5 eggs Unless your waiting for the 8 cores to come out.... 12/25/2011

This review is from: Intel Core i7-3930K Sandy Bridge-E 6-Core 3.2GHz (3.8GHz Turbo) LGA 2011 130W BX80619i73930K Desktop Processor

Pros: Massive overclocking headroom (CPU, memory, video)!! Matched with the Asus P9x79, you won't need a new CPU for years. Runs super cool on water. The highest temp I've seen at 4.0GHz is 39C on all cores after a day of benchmarking. P39900 Vantage CPU@4.0GHz, HD6990@Stock, OCZ Reapers@2133MHz. Why pay for the Rampage IV unless your running LN2? This thing seriously has it all anyway!

Cons: Red debug LEDs. Doesn't go with the all blue/black theme of the motherboard.
