I don't want higher res. like 2560x1440 cause that would mean upgrading my GPU and probably CPU as well which I cannot afford now, plus I'm saving money for an Oculus Rift.

So does the Korean monitor market offer any 1920x1200@120Hx monitors? Thx

I liked your Samsung .. it has nice specs.

Me too I'm looking to upgrade my monitor and connect it to my laptop because I want bigger for broad vision smile.gif

I thought about Korean monitors .. so they have 120Hz and high res ..

Though, my laptop wouldn't support these features .. and I'm wondering if the laptop would at least run Korean monitor at normal performance >> is that possible ?

Also .. I need to get DVI to HDMI cable >> would this cable work as dual DVI?

They make two versions

One that has DL-DVI only and can overclock, but you need DL-DVI to use it. NO HDMI Period!

Then there is the Display Port Version that has DVI, DisplayPort, HDMI, and VGA I think. That is limited to 60hz and is only a few bucks more then the DL-DVI only model.

I came from a 1080p 120hz screen to my Current X-Star 1440p running @ 110hz. Lovin it biggrin.gif

It has more ghosting but not anything really bad IMO plus biggest gain for me was getting rid of most tearing. Now Tearing is just as rare as it was on my old 120hz monitor with vsync off.

I can't stand tearing and dislike using vsync that is why a monitor getting locked into 60hz was a no no for me. Plus the Response time and Fluidity is pretty nice @ 110hz vs the stock 60. Though my Top right corner has darkened a little more then the rest of the screen but looks great on games and really isn't that noticeable. Only happens when OCed.

You overclock a panel and then months later it breaks down. That means the chips inside your panel or some wire or something has degraded. If changing your DVI cable does nothing the next thing I would guess it would be a component on the board and since the chip is what is being overclocked(too high too much heat) its probably the chip breaking down cause you overclocked it!!!!!. Should have added heatsinks to the Explore 110hz OC Chip 450Mhz Pixel ClockEP269 1229G M35562 Chip and the Wise View LRU4122MOL-Q Inverter Chips(I got some copper shims and used thermal paste and thermal expoxy to bond them(with thermal paste) to the back inverter cover panel).

Also at this point you shouldnt be thinking 780ti you should be looking at 8 Series Nvidia.

Windows 8.1 is so much faster in games you just have enable testsigning mode to install custom drivers and run these commands to make it more like windows 7.

powercfg.exe -h off
bcdedit /set useplatformclock true
bcdedit /set disabledynamictick yes
netsh int tcp set heuristics disabled
netsh int tcp set global autotuninglevel=disabled
netsh int tcp set global ecncapability=enabled
netsh int tcp set global rss=enabled
netsh int tcp set global chimney=enabled
netsh int tcp set global dca=enabled
netsh int tcp set global netdma=enabled

First one disable hiberfil.sys the rest tweak the network handing for games.

Hey bro, thanks for always helping everyone out on here. A lot of people would be screwed if you weren't around on this thread lol.

I used the nvidia way and it seemed too easy haha. What can I do to verify it's working at 96Hz? Everything does seem smoother, but it could be a placebo affect.

See if applications VSync at 96Hz, easiest way.

http://www.testufo.com

See if it syncs at 96Hz. If it gives valid, make sure it's perfectly smooth without any stutter and you're good to go.

Lawson, I just ordered the Spyder4 Elite -- They didn't have the Colormunki on Newegg Premier...
You're wasting your money with the Elite. For the same price, go for the i1 Display Pro, Colormunki Display is the same sensor but a bit slower than the i1DP and does not have official support in 3rd-party applications.

i1DP > Spyder4Elite. Just search the thread, there are a million posts about colorimeters.

If I'm forced to be in a situation where sometime it works and sometimes it doesn't, I'd rather just forget all this icc profile nonsense, use NVCP to up the gamma a bit and call it a day.
He linked you in his post to such an application.

NVCP will not lock your colors for games that reset / override your color profile. AMD do, as they place their color modifications somewhere beyond the LUT that ICC profiles (and I suppose NVCP) load their profiles into (an area which can be reset) but both control panels are sparse on accurate color controls. ICC profiles are essentially curves that correct many points on the curve and not just shift colors here and there (slider).

To check its working you can test it at the UFO test page... i shall add a link below and to check your games can see your 96hz custom resolution you can go into any game i use "counterstrike source bench mark" and enable vsync....if you can hit anything over 60fps to a max of 96fps its working fine in games also...

It is also worth adding that if you check windows resolution by right clicking on the desktop and going to and hitting "Screen resolution" then go to advance settings and then the monitor tab and you can see your custom resolution listed in there with the box checked that says "Hide modes this monitor cannot display"....and you see your custom resolution still listed in there then it has to be working...example in my picture below.

Yasamoka,

Thanks for the advice. Looks like that is out of stock on Newegg as well. I guess I'll bite the bullet and order either the i1 Display Pro or Colormunki. I appreciate the help!

I saw a cable on internet which convert from DVI to HDMI .. is it helpful for my laptop which doesn't have DVI port ?
