I also took the power brick and used electrical tape to attach it to the bar of the stand, gives a nice clean look since you can hide the DVI cable and power cord behind the bar. Dont be too jealous of my Jack In The Box bobble head.

that's a brilliant price!
My 2 680s would have cost me:
£140 + £220 = £360 / $600

Hey all,

So I got my monitor finally and I'm trying to overclock it. I'm not able to select 120hz or anything. I tried using the CRU.EXE in the first post and I changed the profile to 120hz as seen here:

http://prntscr.com/32a8x2

But after rebooting and everything and even with the profile at what it says it's at, I go to the site in the thread to check what hertz I'm at and it just stays at 60.

Nvidia controlpanel also does not allow me to select any refresh rates despite me installing the patcher. I have 2x GTX 680's in sli, I have also tried disabling SLI and trying.

What's the catch?

EDIT: Yeah, I still can't get it. I did have my 2nd monitor plugged up to it, but I took that off and I still can't overclock... or am I missing something?

Haha, yes smile.gif

It's sales tax (HST/PST/GST) though, not customs.

You can also see the power brick taped up.

Monoprice stand, QNIX 2710 from excellent-castle.

Zero stuck/dead pixels, used a spare set of nuts to act as washers (just the right size)

Am ecstatic.

Figured it out.

OP should add in there for Nvidia users to disable a setting to get it to work. It's in the instructions on that side, but it's very important, ought to be in the first post as well

Working at 120hz :yay

Nevermind x2. Not sure if it's really at 120hz or not...

Nvidia control panel has it listed at 120hz. But when using that site again, it still just says 60. Is there another way to test or am I supposed to do something different to get it to 120hz?
