Have you tried enabling GPU Scalling in CCC in "My digital flat panels" while using in 1080p

Please post a screenshot of an example of each resolution, this will help me decide between 1 or 3!!! redface.gif

When I finally purchased was right before the explosion of new sellers.

Believe me, I read all the threads on OCN, and everyday I read all comments

Ok, is "overclocking" a monitor just a way of saying: increasing the refresh rate?

Exactly. It doesn't work with most monitors (as they have too much hardware between the panel and video output that will just drop frames if it's something it doesn't expect) but it can with these (with the right internal boards).

I personally find running anything other than video content at 1080p full screen (desktop/game/etc.) to be unacceptably blurry; it defeats the point of the monitor entirely, and you'd get a superior image with a native 1080p panel if that's the resolution you'll be running for everything. If you want to see how it would look, simply change your current monitor's desktop resolution (assuming you're using an LCD) to something about two-thirds as large (ie: run 1600x900 or 1280x720 or similar on a 1080p monitor) and you'll see the effect; this is common to *all* LCDs running at non-native resolution, and should be avoided at all times (unless there's absolutely no way around it). Since these monitors have such a high native resolution, an exception exists at 1280x720 as the panel is 4x this resolution, meaning running 720p on the screen results in 4 pixels being evenly used to represent each pixel sent to it; no uneven scaling is required and the resultant image is sharp. Anything between 720p and 1440p will look blurry.

Got mine yesterday. Its a 2C model so 65 mhz is the limit. Gotta say this is a extremly nice moniter. No dead pixels, no backlight bleeding. And opening it up to mount with a vesa wall mount was suprisingly easy ( thanks to the guide ).

Miscommunication. My DVI-D is hooked up to the Yamakasi. The Displayport cable is a native mini-DP to full size DP for the U2412m, my second monitor. No conversions.

Interesting issue that's popping up since I got the 7870. During startup, the screen lights up and boots as normal, but about 40 seconds to a minute into the boot, it goes dark then comes right back.

Maybe the calibration being applied?

hey guys just got mine, zero issues. does anyone have any calibration advice? i'm not overclocking the monitor at all but want it calibrated.
post #1448 of 11297
Hmmm...so my monitor decided to just work fine I guess. Perfect display no dead pixels. If there is any backlight bleed...I sure can't tell. Awesome!!!

Maybe we should ask nvidia why it doesn't let it run past 400 in SLI tongue.gif

At 100hz it's completely fine. At the full 120hz I had screen issues when I turned the monitor back on in the morning. Changing to 118hz fixed that. Also think some more manual timing adjustments to lower the pixel clock a bit more would have fixed the issue. I ended up bring it to a 476mhz clock I think. But never tested to see if it'd stay stable or not as I went SLI shortly after that and can only do 100hz now. And have had no issues after that point. This is all for single cards though.

ah, I see. anyways, in case there are other mac users in the club... I ordered this one from monoprice
the reviews looked really good (better than the original apple stuff).
