If I use CRU then on reboot the monitor makes a clucking noise and goes black, with the blue power LED flashing on and off. As if it's taunting me.

Now, how do I detect/ ensure that games are using 96Hz instead of 60? Force Vsync through nvidia cp?

Hm, I am not even using CRU myself, just the Catleap INF and the driver patch + nv control panel custom resolutions. Have you tried resetting the CRU stuff and not using that, at 120hz?

Also, I'm sorry to ask yet again but no one has answered yet and I wanted to know... can someone look at my post here? smile.gif http://www.overclock.net/t/1384767/the-korean-pls-monitor-club-qnix-x-star/1400_40#post_19984522

I used CRU and my monitor achieved 120hz with darkening(In the corners moreso)

Hm, think I'll stick to 96hz then, though I guess if I'm going to go for 120 I may as well do it within the month exchange period instead of after eek.gif .

Ya I might turn it down to 96hz colours don't seem to look as good without the brightness, I achieved 144hz however I do not consider half the brightness stable. Still it feels nice to know you have a better monitor than anyone can buy in north america biggrin.gif. I can't run most games past 96 hz with a 670 anyway lol

Also with all my vast monitor knowledge(none) I do not see a problem running it at a higher frequency, its not like you are fighting against an overheating monitor it just simply cannot organize the frames it wants to display in time.

Seriously. It's the best tech you can get in a consumer monitor (with 120hz) and it's really cheap. How can this be?

Good points.... and yeah, the color definitely seems better at 96hz by far than 120hz in the dimmer/darker areas. I do like the motion difference, but 96hz is still very responsive and I doubt I'd be able to hold 120fps in most newer games with a single 780 anyway at this point in time eek.gif . 96 is a nice even multiple of 24 still so... smile.gif. The difference from 60 to 96 is very large, while 96 to 120 is a good change but not nearly as monumental (medium instead of gigantic) in my opinion.

LG and Samsung are based in Korea. Much like Mercedes they want to keep their status as a luxury brand by having artificially high prices, many people will buy things based off price and not reviews. They take cherry picked samples from the factory and use them in their products leaving a bunch of "unwanted displays", they sell them locally for cheap. American companies often use a simple hierarchy structure in which the more you pay the better you get without this structure they would be unable to sell 120hz 1080p monitors for $400.

(blah blah, ramble ramble, I feel like that sucked so I won't edit it thumb.gif)
