However at 120 fps it's a lot worse so - as I said my old monitor had the same issues at high fps raitos and I changed the 3 year old cable into a new cheap one, but this cable is just 3 weeks old so idk^^

Things you could try...reseat your graphics card...try your cable in another port if you have one..and of course try a different cable thumb.gif

And Check your 120hz timings

Thanks for your reply. I use your 120 Hz timings, because the right side of the screen was still signifcantly darker than the left side. Once changing the timings for 96 Hz too, it got better, but I can try and see if I change the 96 Hz timings to default. Maybe that helps. I tried different DVI-D cables and ports, but with no luck.

EDIT: Tried the default settings, and now the problem is gone, but now my right side of the screen is dnoticable darker.. Don't want this either. Any way to fix this or use other timings?

EDIT2: Tried it with 120 Hz and with your reduced timings as well, and now I get the problem again.

Screen uniformity can be seen once overclocked and some have it worse than others...timings can help reduce this..however i would be more worried about that big band you had across the screen and it seems that changing to default settings at 96hz took this away?....if you have tried different cables ports etc there's not much left that you can do other than mess with your 96hz timing but i don't think it will help much at 96hz but by all means try

BTW: are you using a 96hz ICC profile as this can help reduce the appearance of Screen uniformity?

What would you do? Try to fix it yourself or If you could find someone to fix, let someone fix it for a fee or send it back/contact seller.

Since it has no dead pixels/excessive backlight bleed.

If it was me i would fix BLB straight away and i personally believe the banding you are seeing over the BLB will be gone...i would do it now for 2 reasons...1: because i have already done it and its and easy job to do!.. also you could easily do it yourself by taking your time carefully reading my guide! and...2: because i would want to make sure the banding had gone before the 2 weeks is up which most seller give you to find any problems and they pay for the return shipping if you encounter any problems with your monitor which has not been cover by there disclaimer such as BLB etc ..

Edit: if you feel that unconfident with striping the monitor down and fixing the BLB then tell the seller that most people do NOT see banding over BLB so you want a refund/change monitor..and open a case with Ebay and the sooner the better!

Yes it will because the LED lights go darker thus the BLB reduces...BTW.. PM sent thumb.gif

Yes indeed. Messing with the timings causes the white banks ingame (only minecraft and team fortress 2). Yes I use the ICC profile you provided for 96 Hz. Why would another DVI-D cable work? Afaik it is just a digital signal (1 or 0) that's going though. If the cable would be a bit broken somewhere I'd notice it immidiately or it wouldn't even work, right? I currently use the dvi cable provided with the monitor.

Some people have found that just by changing ports or cables that they have been able to reduce there pixels clocks thus overclock higher...or artefacts have gone using a different cable they have tried...changing your duel link cable guarantees nothing yet others have found that it has helped them..the same as some have over clocked higher by changing DVI-D ports or cables or even reseating there grafics cards...i understand your logic and i agree with it however these things have indeed happened

Some clam high Quality cables make no difference as its a digital signal (1 or 0) as you have quite rightly pointed out ...however i use a high quality cable and can clock stable at 130hz using this cable..who knows if its my cable that allows me to hit 130hz stable but i can!
