Video quality through DVI and HDMI wont be any different in quality on a 24" monitor. Aside from DVI not having audio pass-through built into the cable they are pretty much exactly the same, just with a differnet connector.

I've bought my monitors (sorry no pics till I take them home sometime next week) and thought it a good idea to check them over. And it came as no surprise to find the first one had a dead pixel on it, im honestly cursed with it, that makes 8 things ive bought that have had a dead pixel on it.

Anyway luckily I can just open up some more new ones and i've got 2 perfect ones put aside for me now.

I've no idea how I can be so unlucky with dead pixels >.>

But yes I do understand your concerns about doing a clearing, manually... before the fact.

I tested however, by letting Prime95 run for about 7 hours, over night, on a Blend Test.

Woke up the next morning, turned on my monitor and it was still going!

CPU at default settings, and Prime95 running for 7 hours and the Temps never exceeded 35c.

Originally, with the previous BIOS, I could not get Prime95 to complete 20 minutes before the system would crash.

So having it pass 7 hours straight without a single error, has me a bit satisfied smile.gif

Now, however...

I am looking at a little of my christmas money and pondering what improvements I can make, and I am starting to ponder about upgrading my little H50, to a newer H70 and maybe modify a little by mounting that H70 in the front drive bays, rather then on the rear of the case.

Shadow:
Yeah ill never buy a monitor over mail for that reason. I bought one of the Benq LED 120Hz XL2410T monitors, and the first one i came home with had 3 dead pixles on it.. just took it back and replaced it no problems, second one was perfect.

But if i didnt have any patients and ordered a week earlier online when they first came out, I would have had to send them back for replacements and god knows what the shipping, or wait times would have been.

Hello folks, new here, and absolutely love this case! Just bought it and put together a new rig.

Question on the side panel, Mine has two large (!20mm?) vents and wanted to know if i can purchase another side panel somewhere that does not have this opening. It attracts a lot of dust and I have no need for the extra cooling, especially not on the upper vent anyway as it wouldn't fit; blocked by CM hyper 212+ hsf.

Other than that, case is brilliant! Huge improvement from my 8 year (AGING would be an understatement) old Thermaltake Tsunami Dream case!

Sorry if I look as if I am taking advantage of the immense popularity of the CM Scout club, just wanted to show my case tongue.gif

cheers.
Looks good but I would do one thing since you have a radiator on the bottom, get taller case feet so that it gets a better air flow, cool paint job you did as well! cool.gif

Been lurking awhile, first time poster.

So i've had this case for about 2 weeks (pics coming later) and love it. However, I want to replace the stock fans with some better quality fans (maybe some red sickleflow ones).

However, what should/can I do with the LED light button? If I replace the fans, that button won't do anything anymore. If I decided to go with some cold cathode lighting would it be pretty easy to run it to that switch?

Thanks!

You really just need to get a piece of plexi, lexan, some sort of plastic and make a new window. Many of us have done it and it is not a very difficult task. The small plastic rivets that hold the window in are re-usable, just push the center in and they release. Use stock window for template, trace around it and cut with jigsaw or bandsaw. Then mark hole locations and drill holes. I think there are several sets of instructions on how to do this in this thread. There are also a few people that make and sell the finished windows, with or without fan holes.

looks good smile.gif

i thought about putting my Rad their. but when i took some measurements my PSU (both the TX and the AX) were about 3/4 a inch too long to allow for a comfortable fit. so i just slashed up the front devil.gif

but i agree with Rocker. taller case feets are a MUST

Excellent Info for us..

I filled out the forms for the video card length, as well as the StormScout Club. Here's a couple pics showing how tight of a fit the card is. I didn't get one of the cut (didn't feel like taking it back out of the case unnecessarily, due to having to kinda force it in), however if you imagine the depth of the card, it should be easy to imagine where it runs into the lip of the top 3.5" bay on the back.
