I love this display. The colors are consistent edge to edge, the brightness is excellent, I like the design, the response time seems excellent for gaming, and there are no dead pixels.

I have it hooked up to my Mac and PC using a DVI KVM switch from Belkin.

I don't have it in front of me, but last night I was playing games for a couple of hours. I seem to recall seeing temperatures like these:

CPU idle: 50c
GPU idle: 50c

CPU under load: 60c
GPU under load: 83c

Should probably turn your fan speed up to 90% to 100%
83C is a bit hot  What program were you running when under load? For full load temp you need to run prime or intel burn test or somthing like these programs.

What's a good temperature for a GPU under load?

Right now I have the GPU fans set to automatic. They tend to start off around 40%, and then automatically run up to 80% during high load. I figured the fans would go even higher if they needed to.

I noticed that the video cards claim to support temperatures up to 105 degrees. That made me think 85 was ok. However, maybe I should just crank the fans up to 90% and see what effect that has.

Did you get you GPUs liquid cooled? That is too hot. I just sent mine back for a cooling problem but mine are liquid cooled and was running at that temp. I also I am upgrading to a 3rd GTX 280 like yours. Your admark score is amazing, was that OCed or stock?

make sure you have your fans turned up in precision just so your cards dont get too hot. 83 isnt too bad though

 That 30000 score is great the new PCgamer really screwed DS by only putting a rating of 23000 Admark score for the new DS twister extreme i7. Its like they took the lowest score. They only gave the new Falcon $7500 i7 with 4 GPUs a 25000 Admark score. Is that a different test than yours?

I couldnt see where your GPUs are liquid cooled because they are still in thier GPU fan cases and I dont see a hose going to them only the CPU.Is that a different cooling option?. Look at my pictures then yours and you will see what I mean its complety different. My pics are at "system arrives safely" Oh wait I have the dual loop thats why Duh . I just sent mine in to be upgraded to 3 cards like yours. Only mine has the 9770 extreme Wink instead of the new i7. Ill be curious to see my times when I get it back.

I'm not sure what the Admark score is. I just ran the free version of 3DMark.

Actually, my cards are air cooled. It was a typo when I wrote that they were liquid cooled. My mind thought one thing, and my fingers typed another!

I seriously thought about liquid cooling, but decided that I wanted the video cards to be easily upgradeable, and that meant air cooling.
