Well you will find out some day, but then again maybe you wont. biggrin.gif

Now if they will just get Geforce Experience working with more games. Isn't funny how, as people who trick out our PCs, we are never quite happy with them, always wanting to squeeze out just a little more juice.

Now I'm thinking two of these monitors would be awesome.

I have to admit i am also thinking of buying another...i would like as a project to get the monex....NCX says the build qulity of the case etc is very good...so would like to see if i can get one of the sellers to sell me a Qnix PCB Board and try to put that into a glossy Monex as they are so much cheaper right now than a true Qnix Glossy and overclock it ....NCX clams there PCB does not overclock on the Monex.....however they appear to have the same samsung pls panel we have....so i am thinking with a Qnix PCB it should work thumb.gif

I have been overclocking my computers for years ...my old core 2 extreme CPU i had overclocked by 600mhz from 3.00ghz to 3.60ghz without the need to raise the voltage which also meant i did not need to upgrade the heatsink as it did not get any hotter...i had that computer for 5 years and i sold it a friend about a year ago and it is still running perfectly fine today...

My haswell I7-4770k is also overclocked to 4.5ghz from 3.5ghz but i needed to raise the voltage to achive this...however i have it sat under a waterblock and even when gaming for hours on end "Real Temp" reports that my max temp did not exceed 67c....so i also do not believe i am harming my I7-4770k in anyway being able to keep it at that temperature and below ....and as a result of that my I7-4770k is also overclocked 24/7 at 4.5ghz

I said specifically that the effect already starts at 70 Hz and has therefor nothing to do with my pixel clock, which is 459 MHz at a 120 Hz refresh rate. I am sure that you or lawson67 don't see any image retention on your screens at 120 Hz, because I don't see it either. It's only in this specific case that I can see it and I described exactly how to reproduce it. Please try it yourself: one half of the screen is green, while the other half is filled with a lot of black "X" letters on white background. I used notepad with the Fixedsys font.

Yeah i tried to reproduce this with your description but i cant see such things as you on my monitor.
I captured some photos just like you but everything is perfect.

Thats not a monitor, we don't have enough info yet to see if they will suffer. I OC just like most of us, but not my monitor, but then again, this Asus gets frame skipping at anything over 60hz. Here is a test for you overclockers.

Hi - quick couple of questions which I hope someone here can help me with:

1. My QX2710 fails oc on 120 hz; it makes 90 easily and will probably go higher. Will adding another card (to make crossfire) improve chances of success or does that have no bearing at all?

2. Is it a case of 120 or nothing else - or is, day, 100 going to help out with games?

Thanks

Any suggestions if it's actually worth to buy some shorter dvi cable even if i reach 120hz with custom timings and stock cable?
Have bought a 1.5m cable and a 1m cable.
The 1m gave me equal results comparing to the stock cable, and with the 1.5m cable im getting 10MHz pixel clock more then with the stock cable.
The only thing that would be better would be a lower pixel clock when overclocking to 120hz (144hz will be very hard to achieve i think)...
I could only get some shorter cables as there are no 24awg cables as in america...
I can only not getting lower with the pixel clock then 2652 in width in CRU with all of the tested cables.
Sorry if this seems to be a very stupid question but im interested in such things as it's kind of a hobby to get the "best" OC results like with a PC. biggrin.gif

Overclocking is always hit or miss, even with others getting 120hz.
