Dell 2405FPW 24" TFT



As a frequent user of my PC and fan of PC gaming I needed a monitor that would both be excellent for gaming, playing on my XBox 360 and general usage including Dreamweaver and various design applications.

Dell have a reputation in the monitor industry of taking excellent screens and components and putting them together in a complete package.

When the Box arrived at my desk the first thing I saw was the excellent packaging and the usual Dell branded box. The packaging was excellent and there is no way that the 2405FPW would get damaged in transit.

Here's a quick picture of the monitor:

Dell 2405FPW


The package that comes with the Dell 2405 is pretty complete for setting up a normal PC on it.
You get:

* 1 x High Quality EMS DVI Cable
* 1 x VGA Cable
* 1 x Power lead for Dell 2405FPS (kettle type)
* 1 x Driver CD
* 1 x Instruction Sheet
* 1 x Manual for Dell 2405FPW

The power lead comes in a seperate box so you may want to check you have it. It's also worth noting that any normal PC "kettle" type lead is fine to use.
Now onto the monitor itself...

Hi there guys , just recently purchased my new system which details are in my signature and while reading all the o/c info on these forums i just jumped into o/c my system without burning cpu and memory ( 100% load and not heat wise ).

System is running 9 * 300 2700mhz

Mem is running 5/4 Divider 246mhz 2-2-2-5 Settings.

Any other settings it wont boot or i get lost in all the options etc.

So shall i carry on with the o/c or continue stressing c.p.u and memory ( burn in ), what do you guys think ?Quote

Burn-in and stability test....

Run OCCT or a small fft prime95 torture test for 12 hours... Then run a large fft torture test. Do a few 32mb super pi's and you should be good to go if you can do all of the afformentioned tests w/o errors.

If you pass all of those then bump up your volts and your OC! Obviously make sure to keep your temps within optimal operating zones.

Whats the TCaseMax on that chip of yours? (If it supports it).Quote

Screenie and stuff should be forthcoming!

And add a pic of your rig to the gallery! Quote

That's a decent TCase number, I'd reckon that'd be good for about 2.7ish.

Mine surprised the out of me, my TCase is only 49* but it overclocks like a raped ape with the IHS popped off.

Try bumping up your multiplier one notch, that RAM is going to thrive more on higher multipliers where you're able to keep the fsb down.Quote

Well c.p.u is on 2750mhz 1.5v 2000ht

Mem 1:1 250mhz 2-2-2-5 1t memtests 100% , test passed 5 times

prime95 basic fff passed fine so i run torture test and now i am at work.

Before running torture tests etc i run Sisoft Sandra Mem benchmark and got 7209 so it looks v.good so far . Temperatures seems to be around 33 idle and 44+- load. If the tests are passed i ll upping the fsb see if it goes higher.

I ll post the screenshots tonight hopefully Quote

Nice mate thats some good work.

Like the thoroughness in testing to get it stable - all the good OC'ers do it but not everyone does

I'll look forward to the pics! Quote

Alright , does any1 has any spare voltage that i can borrow

2750mhz 1:1 250mhz 2-2-2-5-1T stable on Prime95 small fft , large fft , SuperPI 16mb and memtest.

This was more of a c.p.u clock rather then mem clock. Sisoft Sandra scores 6699 odly as previous run scored 7209 , just couldnt find what i' ve changed while testing, weird.

2855mhz 1:1 259mhz 2-2-2-5-1T - Stable on Sisoft Mem Bench, scored 6948mb/s , stable on windows / does normal programs etc - Passes Prime95 Benchmark - Fails Prime95 small fft havent run SuperPI.

Max boot into windows at 2922mhz 1.67v 1:1 265 2-2-2-5-1T - Ok in usual basic windows stuff - anything else ( Sisoft and any other benchs ) bsod.

This was just a quick overview and its very time consuming. I ll go more in depth settings and tests in a few days. Probably lighten the timings and try to increase htt rather then multiplier. So far so good Quote
