It overclocks to 80Hz easily. It will go to 85, but one time I had it no resync when switching resolutions, so I backed if off to 80. 86-87 gives you some static and 88-89 won't come on. So 80 seems to be the sweet stable spot. I played Crisis for a couple hours no problem. I know it is not quite as fast as the Korean ones, but all the other pluses outweigh the extra speed for me. Also, I don't have time for a ton of tweaking, fixing, modifying stands, etc., so for me I think this was a wise choice.

My computer is definitely faster than my monitor smile.gif Had to turn on V-sync because I was getting tearing. FPS was way into the triple digits on Crysis. 4770k and 780 Ti etc.

Anyway, I just thought I would report back in case anyone else is considering a name brand local purchase vs. Korean.....

I am using the Display Port connector which is nice because it passes audio, but......
The speakers suck. I was using the speakers in my 32" TV and they were fine, but even for a not very demanding person the ASUS speakers are too quiet. You have to turn everything all the way up and they sound like a 70's portable radio.


Are you running 1440p or 1080P ? cause I get no tearing at 1440p at 120hz on Crysis 3 lol.

Jetlitheone is right about the HDCP. Do you use the patcher and CRU or Nvidia control panel to overclock you monitor?

I just started using the Nvidia control panel and have had better luck. I can watch Netflix with the windows 8 app and it used to give me a problem if I used the patch and cru. With Nvidia control panel HDCP doesn't seem to be a problem for me. IDK if it will help your HBO issue but it worked for my Netflix issue. With the patcher and CRU the Netflix app would just sit there loading and then say problem delivering content or something along those lines, now it just loads like it should. I believe it says in the OP that the full patcher will break HDCP content if you use it.

Well, If that is the case then 1440P still has a big advantage.

1440p on Crysis 1 which does not have a V-Sync check mark in the options. You have to turn it on manually. I actually turned on adaptive V-Sync in the Nvidia controls to correct it. Having a computer fast enough that you have to use it is not necessarily a bad thing smile.gif I was getting triple digit FPS in Crysis and the monitor is only 80hz, so this makes tearing happen at times....V-sync slows it down and syncs the FPS with the monitors refresh rate.

In your case, you probably won't see tearing unless you have V-Sync off and your computer is able to spit out more than 120 FPS (more than this will be faster than 120Hz can display properly).....I don't have Crisis 3, but it may have a V-sync option in the graphics settings (if it is on you should not see tearing). I don't think you can display FPS in Crysis 3 without another program from what I read. In Crysis 1 you just hit the "`" key (above the tab on the left) and type in r_DisplayInfo = 1 to turn it on.

The resolution has nothing to do with tearing typically other than it does affect how many FPS your computer can spit out. Lower resolution would actually make tearing easier to occur...

In other words.....you might not be getting tearing because you computer is not fast enough to make it happen, or you might have V-sync on or multiple buffering or other means of dealing with it......

My computer is definitely not fast enough to run Crysis 3 at over 120fps... lol not many people have a PC that fast

Dealing with all this crap is a big part of why I just went to Micro Center and got an ASUS......it was too easy since they are not far from my work. No hassles. I sacrificed 16-40 Hz worth of speed, but I got a perfect picture, no backlight bleed, no crappy stand, no crappy bezel, more inputs, pivot, OSD, speakers (crappy ones), warranty....etc for $218 more. And I still have over 3 weeks more to try it out and return for any reason I want. I can still change my mind and get a QNIX (although after a weekend with the ASUS, I doubt that will happen).
