My power supply is a Cooler Master Silent Pro M 850W, and I don't see why changing my monitor would make it work any harder. I'm only at the desktop, and I keep hearing the fan in the power supply coming on and off, and sometimes it just stays on like it's working hard. Has anyone else ran into this? Would this be a reason to RMA the power supply? It doesn't affect how the computer runs (yet), but it is definitely annoyingly loud. Thanks in advance.
It probably has to do with your top GPU no longer going into a low idle and using more energy to run at 96hz at 1440p..

Awesome, I think I'll pull the trigger on a matte Qnix then.

As an aside, what's the actual difference between the X-Star and Qnix? X-Stars are more expensive than Qnixes with green-sum but they're cheaper with dream-seller. Not sure what to make of that.

I've got MSI Afterburner open on my other monitor, and the cards are definitely downclocking to 324MHz and idling nice and cool at 35C. Cool is a relative term, because it's hot as balls here in Surprise, AZ. I keep the house at 78F ambient.

I just hooked up my X-Star 2710. No backlight bleed, no loose panel and no dead or stuck pixels. Luck of the draw. I also purchase a ST warranty for $35. My Samsung 2494hm just died just after 3.5 years.

$310 on Ebay from "lovelypeople"
I bought it from them because their policies were clearly written.
Korea to NJ in 3 days.
The picture on this thing is simply fantastic. But god the case is ugly.

I don't play many games, but my GT240 is not going to cut it. Windows Media Center is a bit choppy at full screen.

Just finished setting up my qnix from green-sum and I'm counting four stuck red pixels with two of them being in the center area. Looks great other than that though... rolleyes.gif

The X-Star's seem to be better off in terms of backlight bleed. Is the ST warranty worth it? Also, it says $49.99 for the ST warranty from lovelypeople. How did you get it for $35?

Squaretrade is worth it. I have had personal experience and have read several good reviews. So far the only negative consensus is that they are quick to offer a refund(bad thing?). Also the xstars having better backlight bleed could very easily be a byproduct of binning between the two brands since they are exactly the same(sticker aside) so don't hold to much to this statement.
