Mmm fraps won't tell you if you're missing frames or not, just how many frames your computer is sending to the monitor. It's up to the monitor to show as many of those frames as it likes or skip them as it sees fit.

Obviously if your computer is only sending 60 you'll never know if your monitor is skipping, so fix that first.

That is awesome! Thank you for your effort.

This is incredible. Any results on XSTAR overclock?

Which picture shows 60 hz and which shows 120 hz ?!

The ones with the longer "trails" show 120hz - you can clearly see that there's more of them (refreshing more often) and that the squares aren't as bright (each individual frame isn't held as long, resulting in a dimmer picture).

You can also tell it's 120hz because there's on average double the amount of boxes filled in those pictures than the pictures with 60hz.

Ok, thx thumb.gif
Wasn't shure because you wrote "60Hz and 120hz" and it was the other way round.
And i tested this with my Catleap at 120 Hz and got the same result as you explained it. So everything is fine smile.gif

I am running my QX2710 at 120Hz, another way to test (correct me if I'm wrong), is to throw in a Blu-ray and look for judder. Since all Blu-rays are encoded at 24fps (or "24p"), the motion at 60Hz will not be smooth, because the monitor has to use a technique called 3:2 pulldown that allows it to display the 24FPS @ 60Hz which results in "judder". Easiest way to test this (for the untrained eye), is watch any time the camera is panning, you will notice the motion is not smooth. I myself can notice it at any time now since I've been watching Blu-rays on my plasma tv @ 96Hz for years. Anyways I tested the QX2710 at both 96Hz and 120Hz and the motion is butter smooth on Blu-rays, if the monitor was only showing 60Hz it would not be.

I did notice the picture gets darker at 120Hz, but not to the point where there's a loss in quality. By the sounds of "paid2kills" post, this is supposed to happen. Is that what this "lightboost" thing on brand name 120Hz monitors is supposed to correct? Or should I try a higher quality DVI cable? I also didn't detect any artifacting or other abnormalities, but that could be because I was so impressed with the color/resolution/smoothness for the first few hours of use. Battlefield 3 actually looks like real life now, it's just insane! Can't wait to get another GTX 670 and run it over 100FPS.

I don't know why with my monitor but I have what looks like green/red, mostly green, artifacting randomly that just sticks different places depending what's showing. That's before I ever overclocked the monitor and I tried it with both an old and new computer. I'm still waiting on a replacement for backlight bleed but I think that's another way in which my monitor is defective. I don't suppose anyone else knows what I'm talking about or has had it happen to them? I'll have to take pictures later.

"Battlefield 3 actually looks like real life now, it's just insane! Can't wait to get another GTX 670 and run it over 100FPS."

lol that is the first game i tried and it does look very nice! with my HD 7950 overclocked to 1200/1400 i get over 70fps on low settings and over 30fps on ultra settings. I know what you mean about envisioning a second card. smile.gif

Turn off any AA if you're going to play on ultra, it really has diminishing returns at 1440p, too much performance loss not worth the marginal difference. With my 7970 I get about a 15 fps increase from having it off.
