I have not seen any gamma drift on mine at 60hz or 120hz. I do believe there is a warm up period but have not directly tested for it.

My 780 runs at full clocks/voltage, sometimes downclocks to 800 mhz while at 120hz. Would like it to drop to 324mhz as it runs about 10c cooler. Anyway to achieve this at 120hz?

Not likely, you are simply using that much GPU to present the screen to keep the power state above P0. This is the same as multi monitor setups that have so much data to present the GPU stays in P1 or P2.

I was able to get mine to stay in P0 at 96hz but even moving the mouse cursor would put it into P1. Overall that extra 6-10 degrees idle temp is no big deal.

The cards dont downclock since they dont go below the threshold for low power to idle.
With my 7970 I was able to edit the bios so lower power mode has same clocks as idle mode.

So the 4 profiles are as follows on it.

idle 375mhz
low 375mhz (use to be 500mhz)
high 1000mhz
turbo 1050mhz

This could work and i might even try it but i would advise anyone who tries it make sure you know what you are doing. There is not much worse than a bricked GPU.

Considering they are the same monitor and that is not only posted in the OP, it has been repeated over and over and over...........

Game is probably set to use a res that the screen doesnt support.
Get the bf4 settings editor and change them before loading the game.

For example at 96hz, Tomb Raider varies from 80ish fps to ~65 fps, so there are noticeable stuttering as compare to just capping the framerate at 60fps, which feels smoother because the framerate does not vary too much and is a consistent 60fps.

However, at 96hz, shooting games are more smooth.

I am just deciding whether I should stick with 96hz or revert back to 60hz. Are there any negatives at higher refresh rate with these Korean PLS panels? Like increased response time or input lag or whatever?

X-star (1440p)

GTX 780

i5-3570k

Having a higher refresh rate can decrease the overall response of the screen due to the decrease in lag time. This can give you a bit better motion response from your input(mouse/keyboard) to the screen and may give slightly less motion blur. The one downfall is that if you are only getting 60FPS you will get tearing. If you run vsync to compensate for this then the vsync filter will negate any positive response effects.

Bottom line if you don't use vsync than you might like the advantages. If you do use vsync then you might want to just set it to 60hz. Either way 96hz will be nice on the desktop and surfing.

I understand not all games need high refresh rate. But regardless of the screens if your struggling to even avg 30fps in any game imo thats not a very fun experience.And I agree with your comment about AA thats why I said I don't use it.
I don't use AA on any of my games except BF4 I use 4x only reason I use it there is it increases my fps. Guess it stresses my gpus enough. I don't use BF4 as a reference point cause with 2 780Ti overclocked I struggle to stay above 120 fps and if I lower the quality I actually get worse performance but both mygpus in game are at 98 percent usage and my 4930k is ay 4.6 and I jump from 180 fps to 95 fps sometimes.

You probably have the reversed quality settings bug then.
Its a bug where low = low, medium = ultra, high = high and ultra = medium.

Take a few screen shots at the different settings and youll find out.
Effects a small amount of people.
But the terrain decoration setting medium = ultra effects most people.

It all got messed up with the first patch when they disabled the dynamic physics. Which effects the grass/water/explosions/tress ect.

That might be why it recommends medium settings then because there is no reason my ti's should not be on ultra

Not the best picture, but these are the lines I was previously talking about. It's not so bad during normal use, but I guess I can live with it. A little bit unfortunate, though frown.gif

Id say there is a high chance that you have that bug then.
Mine recommends medium as well with 2X 7970 ghz.

Medium also looks the best in screen shots. Bushes and shadows are thicker, draw distance is the furtherest.
High looks slightly worse with lighter shadows and bushes can be seen though.
Ultra looks same as high but draw distance is halved.
Low looks very obviously low with draw distance halved again from ultra, bushes completely see though, shadows only on a few things and people can be seen behind boxes in op locker until you get close enough for the box to be rendered.

Just received my monitor today. Virtually flawless. A smidge of BLB along the top edge just left of center, that's it. No bad pixels.

Big thank-you to this thread for pointing me in the right direction. Now to try my hand at overclocking.
