No problem with my triple 6970 too.

If it was my problem, I would try a motherboard BIOS update.

Only two things to note:
A)- Stand is wonky - lean to the right ever so slightly but easily resolvable
B)- No BIOS screen! eeeek! - It only shows up once the PC starts booting windows, so that might be a bit of a problem with my 7970 lol! - Think its something specific to do with Dual-DVI and ATI cards as nvidia cards don't have this problem (according to other research I've done).
In terms of was it worth it - HELL YEAH! - £300 all in for a pixel perfect 27" 1440p monitor was well worth it

You can see the extra pixel space I have over my previous 1920x1200 HPZR24W with the corsair background wink.gif
Need to try some BF3 - finally something to tax my 7970! smile.gif
Two issues:
A)- Minor slant to the right side
B)- Can't get no BIOS screen - only shows windows onwards.
Any help resolving the BIOS screen issue please? - I'm using a Sapphire 7970 connected via the Dual-Link DVI connector. PC boots ok, but only shows a display from windows boot screen onwards. I can't get into the BIOS! Tried using all the different adapters with the gfx card aswell (Mini-DP > DVI and HDMI > DVI) to no avail.
I've also tried the built-in Z68 motherboard DVI port but that just gives me a blank screen - nothing at all even in windows frown.gif
thanks

Interesting. It appears you have the left to right brightness issue as well. That is, the right side is significantly darker than the left on white backgrounds. Thats at least what it looks like looking at your pictures there. You didn't notice this?

I just ordered one and got it in the mail and it looks amazing, I just want to know what everyone is doing about the lack of anti-glare coatings? It is fine most of the time but sometimes its kinda bothersome? Were there certain sellers/models that had anti-glare on them?
post #3165 of 11297
Just ordered from dcsamsungmall so hopefully it gets here next week.
I had originally decided to wait for the 100Hz guaranteed but I have little faith in that occurring now.
Plus if Scribby can obtain some 2b boards I'll be all good.

Can someone do a test for me? Hook a single link dvi cable up to this monitor and set the resolution to 1920x1080 or lower and let me know if a picture comes up. Thanks.

I can't do it on mine because it's broken.

These monitors generally come with no anti-glare coating; a couple people have received units with an anti-glare coating, but they ordered from normal auctions and weren't especially looking for them. There's no assured way to get an anti-glare version that I know of. Honestly I considered the lack of coating a downside before ordering, but after seeing it next to my PVA panel with an anti-glare the increased sharpness and reduced sparkliness is actually pretty nice; I see reflections sometimes, but it's not enough to be too distracting.

You are correct - I have the monitor back together right now (mounted on my dual-arm ergotron LX stand, which is *amazing*) but the next time I have it apart I'll be investigating two things. Firstly I'll look into the backlight flickering (even though it doesn't bother me that much I can still detect it enough to see if I've made improvements or not) by increasing the capacitance on the backlight control line. Secondly I'll be looking into adding a manual brightness balance control that would allow people to tweak variation in brightness between each half of the monitor until they're totally even. A note that this probably *won't* help people with dramatic brightness differences and boards that don't have two backlight drivers (seems to be happening on some newer boards) - I don't have a good solution for that scenario yet but anybody who's having that issue can increase their chances of a fix by posting internals of their monitors so I can examine what they have.

Thats what I was thinking too - probably a motherboard BIOS required - but unfortunately I'm already on the latest 1.20 version.

Specs are as follows:
2700k@4.8Ghz(1.36v) - Custom water for CPU + GPU.
ASRock Extreme4 Gen3
16Gb Corsair Vengeance
Sapphire ATI 7970
Corsair 850W-TX etc etc

Definately no problem with brightness mate , i'd be the first to notice. Probably just a photo thing.
I double checked for dead pixels - Non at all, and also for backlight bleed (I'm anal about that!) and no probs there either.

Overall I'm very impressed - having played BF3 earlier the difference is like night and day using this baby as opposed to my older HPZR24W! - just this darn bios issue to resolve.....
