I was using afterburner, played around with precision x also. My cards are stock, so, I now use nothing. I have never had a GPU overheat, fans need to fail for that to happen.

The first generation Fermi's were notorious for being hot. Not knowing any better, I tried playing Metro 2033 with two GTX 470's in SLI. I could hear my cards revving like crazy, checked the temps and they were at 102 C. Ever after that, I had to manually set the fans on them to 80% just to avoid temps going over 80-85c. I've been paranoid about heat ever since. My GTX 680 has none of those problems, but I still can't relax playing a game without having an idea what my temps are.

On a related note, I noticed Nvidia Control Panel has an update that allows GPU tuning (Performance Group). I'm assuming installing it would undo all the drivers I just installed to overclock, but does anyone know if thats the case?

Then get HWmonitor - any "tweak" software or any crap like that should be uninstalled lol.

USPS has been failing me with the monitor delivery. It was supposed to be here yesterday, was shipped USPS Priority 2-day... yeah, say that when it was shipped Thursday. lol

Priority isn't very high on the priority list... stupid USPS - It's in the town, just have to get it delivered.

Got a perfect monitor without any dead pixels and without any visible backlight bleeding. Stable oc refresh rate out of the box about 108hz. Haven't played around much with different settings, maybe capable of more.

Again: Thank you for this thread and the amount of information & feedback given in it!

Welcome to the club.

Plug in the timings that Lawson67 has posted multiple times in this thread and I bet you will hit 120Hz. thumb.gif

Do make sure you have used the appropriate patches for your setup first, as explained in the op though.

Oh no. You never keep checking the price after you already bought something. That will drive you nuts. Lol:D

Actually, I do it all the time in case something goes on sale that has a price guarantee. I got a friend $300 back on a TV doing that.

True. I agree in that situation. But not in this one. Lol. Great monitors though. Love it.
