    Colour problem with Dell S3222DGM monitor

    Brand new, arrived yesterday. Every single shade of blue (literally typed "shades of blue" in Google) appears purple. I have tried Windows calibration. I have fiddled about with the monitor's hue, saturation and colour settings. Downloaded the latest driver. Nothing will make blues appear blue...

    Dell vs LG Ultrawide

    Hi, im looking at getting a 49in ultrawide to replace my current 2 x Dell 2715H. I like LG and Dell, for 2 reasons: 1) I dont like monitors with a pronounced curve - i admit a harder curve would probably be useful, but my desk isnt that deep, i need something flatter rather than curvier (quiet...

    Hi all, I have recently bought the parts to build an sff machine in a Lazer3D HT5 case. I have built in one of these cases before and it was absolutely great. The last time I built in the case I had no issue sourcing an hd plex 200w and a Dell 240W PA-9E Power Brick. The problem I am facing...

    Preparing a Server for the Next User

    Hi All, I have had my tower server for a few years. I bought it without a boot drive. I bought a 256GB SSD and installed Windows 10 on it and added a couple drives to complete the 4 storage disks, then configured the RAID (forget which). I backed up all the information on an external drive...

    Why aren't the likes of Dell & HP competing in the Threadripper space?

    I find it interesting that the top tier of PC manufacturers simply aren't competing in this space. I expect the likes of OCUK are making money hand over fist. There must be a reason.
