Re: Is there such a thing as 1440p, 144Hz, G-sync, IPS monit

How much differ between monitors and if it will bother you or not depends on how sensitive you are to it, I run some games at 1080p on my ...

Re: Alpenföhn Wing Boost 2 Plus fans

There's a review here. The translation to English seems to be only somewhat better than googlish. However, their fan reviews contains more data than many other sites so the graphs and tables are always useful.

It's too bad they no longer translate their reviews to english. But since you are from Germany I assume you won't have that problem.

Yea, they showed a prototype called GUS II during CES2012 but it was scrapped in the end I think. Earlier this year, at Computex, Silverstone showed their version of the same concept; Silver...
