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:

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...

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
