You can fix the issues (or at least make it somewhat better) by messing about with nvidia control panel gamma settings or calibration profiles. If you use the Asus exclusively for a few days you will soon forget about the colour problems though.

For me, I was using IPS when I switched to lightboost. The colour difference was horrible and it always annoyed me. Then I bought one of the Korean overclockable PLS monitors (QNIX), and the colours were amazing. But it is only after experiencing lightboost that you realise how horrible the blurriness on normal IPS is. I couldn't stand the blurry QNIX, so I went back to lightboost and now I fully and truly appreciate the amazing clarity and awesomeness of this monitor, and truly couldn't care less about colours.

You just have to know for yourself what you truly value, with me its motion clarity over colour improvements. I don't mind the washed out colours at all (especially when gaming you don't notice washed out colours. The only thing you notice is that you can't see as well if your game has really dark dark scenes)

I only have IPS I havent used TN in I think 2 years? lol biggrin.gif but even looking at my tv compared to my Dells its like um... lachen.gifkookoo.gif when I played my xbox tho the colours didnt bother me once i got into the game tongue.gif

I might calibrate the screen a bit just to get the colours good enough then after that meh who cares biggrin.gif, I'll be using it alot seeing I play BF3 with friends every night anyway and thats the reason I want a 120Hz monitor smile.gif. the 8ms lag of the Dell is really hard to play on sometimes mad.gif

I was originally thinking an Overlord Tempest but way to expensive and then I heard they blur a bit on 120Hz. so that turned me off the IPS 120Hz... that and the price eek.gif

Well the motion clarity compared to what I have now will be a god send even tho I cant see the motion blur i know its there and Im always compensating for it. Dark scenes... like Splinter Cell games? tongue.gif Im use to playing really dark games on pretty much 0 brightness devil.gif I like to challenge myself in single player biggrin.gif

Looks like I might be getting the Asus monitor now tongue.gif thats good tho it'll match the dual Asus PA248Q that I plan to get to replace my Dells thumb.gifdrool.gif

How does the Acer HN274HBbmiid work with this? I know the tweak works, but I was wondering if anybody has any information about any artifacts and such.

I saw a deal for this monitor, and bundled with the 3D vision 2 glasses it'd end up being cheaper than XL2411T... which is tempting. It's used, but from a reputable retailer.

Managed to get my 3 Asus Vg248QEs in Portrait Lightboost mode biggrin.gif All I can say is thumb.gif

Thank you both Vega and mdrejhon for the guides to make this stuff happen!!

Well my persistance with lightboost on my AMD platform paid off with sucsess.

my red pixelated artifacts went away after i ONCE AGAIN reset everything and started from scratch.

here are the steps i took




- with amd card, reset all.exe (comes with cru)

-reboot, launch cru

-find monitor, replace with new ID (( ACI27F8 ))

-shut down, install nvidia card, boot

-launch cru

-find monitor, replace with bogus ID

-import lightboost resolutions .bin file

-reboot , check to make sure lightboost works on nvidia card

-shut down, install amd card, boot

-check to make sure lightboost resolution profiles show up in CCC

-done smile.gif

Maybe us AMD owners should pass on this monitor and be vocal about it, to encourage Asus to come out with a universal strobing backlight 144 Hz monitor that's not restricted to Nvidia light boost.

The easiest method I find to do is only have 1 hooked up to your PC at a time and activate each monitor individually. After they've all been LB enabled setup eyefinity and they SHOULD all keep the 3D mode. Trying to do it with all 3 monitors at once can be frustrating where only 1 or 2 of them will activate LB properly.

I did this method on my old PC and just yesterday with ATI cards. I plugged one monitor at a time into my old nvidia comp and after getting them activated swapped them back with no issues to my ATI rig.
