is anyone having issue where if in NV panel power settings are set to adapative the monitor will flicker when video card downclocks to 300mhz or something.
This doesnt happen when I have "prefer maximum performance" set

Ya mboner1 posted that but ya. I know it can be done. I'm just wondering if they ran into any issues and if so what were they plus what mount they used.

So I finally took some time to do some gaming. Been getting clocks sorted out with my new gpu then had to get a new motherboard. All I can say is wow. I had gamed on a 1440p in the past. But have never experienced 120hz. Its pretty sweet. Took BF4 to another level for sure.

Just pulled the trigger on a matte screen X-Star from dream-seller. Can't wait.

Thanks for having this thread. Helped me tremendously in making a decision.

I just received my matte x-star from dreamseller. No backlight bleed or dead pixels I can see. It's been a few hours and it appears stable at 120hz no artifacts or anything funny WOOT!!!!

So sounds like Dream Seller no longer has a lot of crap stock...but maybe that was not a totally fair assessment at the time (last summer). Could be his volume was just that much higher and people with problems are more vocal about them.

Just wondering if the 780ti is like the 290x when overclocked. It makes a qnix screen that is overclocked over 96hz, tear or artifact. I keep reading that the 290x can only overclock a tiny bit then the monitor will aryifact and would have to be down clocked. Thanks for any info. Also thoughts on a 780ti classified vs 290x dcii or lightning. Will the 4 gigof ram and 512 bit really make that big of a difference on 1440p....

The higher the res the more important vram and memory interface speed becomes, Especially with some form of AA.

Just received my X-Star from dreamseller.

Ordered Monday and it arrived Friday. Pretty insane coming from Korea.

VESA mounted it to the wall for full motion.

Thing I noticed right off the bat: Doesn't come with a power wire that works with U.S. plugs (had to borrow one from previous monitor). Larger viewing area and much more desktop space. Base stem is there to stay and looks ugly (base can be removed).

Things I noticed a bit later: Color is not very good out of the box, 96Hz is simple as changing a 60 to 96.

Things I noticed later: 120Hz gives off static horizontal lines, 120Hz makes colors even worse (correctable though). 120Hz makes games feel smooth as butter. Movies look awesome in both 96 and 120 mode.

Things I looked into: My monitor has moderate back light bleeding (not light but not picture destroying) but it only has 1 dead pixel in the bottom right corner. This doesn't bother me because I knew I was paying much less for an A- panel. A particular bad patch of light bleeding would probably be fixed by a tape mod anyways.


So a few things I need help with:

Is the base stem removable or is it melded with the plastic in the bezel?
Where are some good color profiles for 120Hz / 96Hz X-Star?
edit: doh.gif They are on the first post.
How do I get rid of the few horizontal "glitch / static" lines that appear in 120Hz?
I'm guessing the base clock needs reducing but how? Currently it is at 483.3984 MHz.


Also League of Legends will just crash if not opened in 60Hz mode. It will play alright in 96Hz / 120Hz but when you first open the client it crashes.



edit: I got rid of video corruption in 120Hz by using these settings. Thank you immensely Spartan F8!
I'm using the 3ft. DVI-D cable the monitor came with.



Although if you think using preconceived settings is too easy then overclocking consists of reducing "Total Pixels" by 10 and "Total Lines" by 1 until the problem goes away and you don't get a black screen.
