Sometimes, game engines simply ignore whatever you've set in Windows and run 60 because they assume that's what everybody wants (particularly problematic with especially modern titles). Very frustrating. I think part of what helped him in these scenarios was to literally remove the 60Hz EDID profiles for his monitor, although this may not apply to your scenario as you're using powerstrip (I think)...

Yeah I think you're right. It works at the 120hz in WoW, for example. But 60hz in Planetside. And doesn't load BF3. I'll have to see about removing the native 60hz option so it stops trying to switch to it.

Did you hit 120hz with 680's or an Ati card, also if Ati what card and how/what timings?

I'll also check with my friend about what his exact method was to force higher refresh rates in these games. I think for some reason that DX10/11 games were a lot more troublesome than DX9, but I'll let you know what he says.

HyperMatrix, try downloading Team Fortress 2 (it's free on Steam), and setting the -freq 120 launch option to manually tell the game to use that refresh rate.

You may struggle to get 120 FPS at that resolution, so perhaps try one of Chris's FPS configs - http://www.fakkelbrigade.eu/chris/configs/install.htm

Or if you wanted a smaller download you could try Quake Live and use r_displayRefresh 120

The games are running fine at 2560x1440 in windowed mode, at full 120hz. It's just something about when they go into full screen mode.

This is on the new GTX 680 card. The card itself had the max setting at either 2560x1440@32bit color@60hz, or 2560x1440@16bit color@120hz. I forced 2560x1440@32 bit@120hz. Which I think is what's causing the issue. I think the card tries to revert to its suggested max specs when it tries to full screen a game. -_-

Will be gone for an hour or so. Have to head to work to see if I can find my SLI bridge. Bought 2 of those 680's. Wanna get them working together already. tongue.gif

Thread Starter 

I just heard from bQvle about the possibility of the eBay seller getting us the PCBs.  The seller says there are over 1200 PCBs at the factory, but they won't sell them in large numbers.

 

I called bull**** on this since there is no margin in just selling $20-$30 PCBs - the money is in the monitors so he is clearly holding out on us.

 

At least this is proving that the PCBs are in fact being produced I just have to get at the right person.  I think that is my Witech contact and hope to hear from him soon (probably will around 2am again!)


So for now here's where it stands assuming the seller is not talking complete crap - PCBs, check, cables, check - sell them to us in large numbers - no dice (at least from him.)


We will get them I swear by all that is right and holy!  popesmiley.png

It's a VESA 75mm mount. Look for a 10kg arm.

I went overkill with the Ergotron MX (14kg).

HyperMatrix, you should go for the title of "First person to do NVidia 3D surround with 1440p IPS monitors".
