Add me to the list of people using vesanius's new ICC profile.

On a side note: My qnix OC's perfectly fine to 120 hz, but I run it at 100hz as I cant tell the difference, and it allows me to run games with a 102 framerate limit. I seem to end up with less stress on my cards and my monitor that way (that's what I am telling myself anyway, because it seems logical).

The most important thing is your own eye. If you can't see any difference then there's absolutely no reason to OC the monitor to 120Hz as it does require more from your GPU. Except that a higher refresh rate should be easier for your eyes, which can be noticed if you sit at the computer for a long period. I'm personally using 96hz too and occasionally 110hz while I'm gaming. I'm keeping it @ 96hz while not gaming so it's multiplied by 24, which is the frame rate that most of the video is captured and thus it should give a smoother look. And it's great to see that the profile works yet for another person. I almost didn't post it at all in the first place so the fact that people find it a good profile makes me happy smile.gif

so is PLS newer than AH-IPS?
I thought AH was the newer version.

I was willing to sacrifice refresh rate for color quality.

Trust me I know, I was all excited last week when mine showed up only to shake the box and hear all the broken glass. Then it sat there in the box all week staring at me. rolleyes.gif Now thats finally over ready for mine as well.!

So these things don't work on onboard graphics right? Its not the right type of DVI?

Check the main page. There's a guide in the first post which may or may not help with the BLB. It requires you to remove the bezel and open the metal framing of the panel, but it's not rocket science. A common sense to not use too much force on anything and being overall careful applies though. I personally couldn't bother doing that since it doesn't really bother me that much. The metal frame of my panel was bend a bit, but it seems to have no effect (for some people it causes more BLB).

well I don't think I explained my self sorry, I don't think I have blb very bad. its just the kinda shimmer or "shine from the panel. it dosnt allow it to get that deep inky black at all. blb has more of a yellow is sheen like a flash light this purblish sheen is just all over and kinda changes when the way you look at it. I suppose its just the way it is but its defiantly not as good as I had hoped.

4 screws and the front bezel comes off, only thing you need to do to remove the glass.

How does one remove the glass? I've checked through the thread about especially the opening post. I found no guides to remove the glass...
