Thanks to the rise of TN panels, LCD monitors have become incredibly cheap. However, some of us are still willing to pay a premium for the superior color reproduction offered by IPS and PVA panels. I didn't even consider TN panels when upgrading the displays connected to my primary desktop, although I did cheap out on a TN screen to replace the aging CRT I had hooked up to test systems. So, what about you? What kind of panel lives inside your primary LCD monitor? You can cast your vote over on the right column on the front page or after clicking on the comment link below.
In last week's poll, we asked about the size of the fan strapped to your CPU cooler. At 52%, the majority, and by far the biggest group, are rocking 120-mm fans. In a distant second place, 17% are using whatever came with the stock cooler. 14% employ aftermarket cooling with a 92-mm fan, and 10% are split evenly between 80- and 140-mm fans. Rounding out the rest, 3% rely on passive cooling, 2% have a CPU fan smaller than 80 mm, and another 2% are using a massive turbine that measures greater than 140 mm in diameter.
