  • There are case fans as well as the Noctua NH-D15 CHROMAX.BLACK 82.52 CFM CPU Cooler .  I hope AVA understand the need for airflow, but I really appreciate your suggestion to find software to monitor. ...
  • Thanks for the reply, but really too late at this point, but because of your post, I did search up some reviews... Tom's seems to like the board, and had trouble finding anything written bad about ...
  • I am following your thread and hope you figure out what is wrong. I recently ordered a PC for LR with mostly the same components, You said you did all the tweaks for LR, can you please point to ...
  • I basically followed much of what a Lightroom optimized system from Puget Sound was equipped, and added an 8GB Video card as recommended by Topaz.  I want to future-proof as much as possible - and ...
  • NY'er They sent me an email to show me lots of tests and as I bought a system from them in 2011 (which this is replacing) I believe they are good, and my luck was just a bit bad. its AVA Direct.

  • I used pcpartpicker.com to see what the raw cost on the parts would be. It looks like I would save $700 if I bought and assembled on my own. The fact that I get a system warranty and have ...
  • I don't really want to out them yet, as they are "working with me". I shipped the system back and they say it will be at least a week, as the MB is bad, they swear it was tested and fine, so ...
  • thanks for the recommendation , but they seem very expensive, and do not offer a large selection of components. I
  • Created discussion thread Recommendations for a custom PC Builder
    I order a PC based on several threads there. It took 6 weeks, and arrived last week. It wouldn't boot.  they thought it was the video card, so they shipped me a new one, a few days later tried ...
  • Created discussion thread Dells new U2720Q - thoughts?
    As I just received a new PC built for LR... I am still on the fence about the monitor. Is it dumb to assume the Dell U2720Q will be a worthwhile upgrade to the 2718Q it is replacing? Dell has a ...
  • Thanks, I did end up going with a Noctua NH-D15 CHROMAX.BLACK 82.52 CFM CPU Cooler also they called and upgraded me to the Ultra Platinum Power Supply (since the regular platinum was out of ...
  • Following your thread a little, as I got help here about a month ago. The system I ended up ordering was very similar... which I have not received yet, but it is supposed to ship this week. Now I ...
  • This is another very good point.  My current Monitor is an old Dell , its max resolution is 1680 x 1050.  When diagonally measuring the screen its 22". Can my new video card output 2 different ...
  • Thanks very much for the replies! I will be going with 2, 27" 4K monitors. Still leaning towards the Dell Dell UltraSharp U2718Q 27" 16:9 4K HDR IPS Monitor even though they recently came out with ...
  • My primary reason for going to a two monitor setup is not based on Lightroom, even though the hardware configuration was. I have long wanted to up to two screen, so basically one can have my email ...
  • Created discussion thread New LR PC, one wide monitor or 2?
    I recently (with the help of this forum) ordered a new PC. It will arrive in the next 2 weeks. The most power hungry thing I will do is Lightroom and maybe some video editing. I am not a pro - just ...
  • Thanks very much... I am still on 6.14 and not sure I want to go to the subscription model... can I use 2 monitors in LR (grid and develop) with my current version? I still cannot get a straight ...
  • I just ordered a new PC, and am shopping for a pair of 27" monitors. How do you setup to have Grid on one monitor and Develop on the other?  Sounds great. thx
