It went across the entire monitor, I was just up close to show it better.

Were you running at 120hz?

Until you end up with 1 or 2 and it annoys the hell out of you. I don't think $30 is a stupid deal for peace of mind. However, some people could care less about 2-3 dead/stuck pixels. I, on the other hand, would not be able to enjoy my monitor knowing it had a few dead ones.

At 110hz, it's not stable at 120. And I swapped it to 85,60 and 59. And when I did I got horrible constant screen flickering.

Intel iGPU cannot overclock and does not have dual-link DVI to begin with. Careful.

How have you connected the two displays?

You are correct! Already had tried the iGPU with no luck.

Monitors connected on Dual DVI of my 7970 CF. But my 2nd 7970 is a reference with only 1 DVI-DL.
I swapped the order of the cards to get my other 7970 in primary slot since it has 2 DL-DVI.

I get the horizontal green lines on one of the screens in desktop with CRU removed and stock 60hz.
When I drop the resolution to 1080 on 1 screen, flicker goes away.

Problem may be in gpu

I don't know of any non-reference 7970 with 2 dual-link DVI. It might be 1 dual-link and 1 single-link. What 7970 do you have?

Except Perfext pixel is still stupid, since it isn't peace of mind, it isn't going to guarantee 0 pixel defects, it doesn't cover backlight bleed at all, and will still occasionally result in pixel defects. Congrats! Since you have a covered pixel defect (and many aren't) you can send it back to Korea without paying shipping; given that you can deal with a month of wrangling with the seller, waiting for shipping the monitor back, and then waiting for a new monitor - only to get the same chance that you'll get a pixel defect again. Nor does it cover low contrast. Nor tinting. Nor uniformity.

Oh, and that's if your seller is nice. The bad ones just offer to refund you the perfect pixel markup - a scam if I ever saw one.

Perfect pixel is stupid. It's a marketing phrase coined by them to meet the expectations of buyers who ought not to have those expectations to begin with, 2 years ago when people asked sellers to "open up the box and check for dead pixels". If you want peace of mind - get a monitor with a real return policy from a Dell or HP or Apple. There, you have a guarantee. Here, you take your chances (and your chances are good) that you'll get a decent monitor. If you don't, you don't; if you do, you do. If you don't want to take the chance, know that Perfect Pixel does not make that chance go away. Perfect Pixel (I capitalize deliberately) does not mean every pixel will be perfect. Far from it.

Perfect pixel is stupid!..Utter nonsense there are seller that guarantee pixel perfect "NOT ONE DEAD PIXEL" i bought mine pixel perfect and it arrived pixel perfect...also as my seller sold it to me pixel perfect if it arrived at my house NOT pixel perfect he would of in the UK Alone of broken the trade description Act...and if Ebay want to Trade in the UK they are obligated to comply with UK law meaning i would have Ebay on my side and the seller would have no choice but to pay for the shipping back to Korea or i would be refunded by pay pal if he did not want to pay shipping back to korea and i would get to keep the monitor for free...Not a bad deal!

As for BLB its expected its why these screens are A- Grade i expected BLB and indeed i had it BLB and i fixed it 100%..however I bought my monitor pixel perfect because i did not want one dead pixel...if he had sent me a screen with one dead pixel...how many times do you think he would pay for the return shipping of the monitor back to korea before he sent me a pixel perfect screen?...i believe he would NOT make the same mistake twice..

Some do NOT want any dead pixels and are prepared to pay extra for that!...i wanted pixel perfect because i cannot fix a dead pixel.. and could not live with any dead pixels..however i can fix BLB and i have got a monitor that is now as good as an A+ screen because i paid extra for pixel perfect and i can fix and repair any BLB...Also i am willing to return as many monitors as needs be if i bought a pixel perfect monitor and did not receive a pixel perfect monitor!....however to most sellers this would be a very expensive game for them to have to play!... so believe me your next monitor would indeed be pixel perfect if they had to pay shipping back to korea which they would have no choice but to do!...Also all the members on this forum that i know of have indeed received a pixel perfect monitor when they ordered a pixel perfect monitor!

You are correct! I didn't know. I was just going off how the connector looked. I am indeed running my 2nd screen on single link which would explain the issue.

Guess its new GPU time.

If you look, there are now some Korean monitors on eBay that are claiming "Ultimate Perfect Pixel" which is a 100% guarantee of NO dead or stuck pixels but it costs you extra $$$.

Guys, I'm debating buying a fairly large quantity of these things... Looking upwards of (50-60), and making them available for better pricing... Thoughts on that?
