And you are right, I believe that the Hz recognition issue only pops up sometimes.

Just NVCP, even removed the patch today. Installed it anyhow, just to get rid of the Generic PNP.

I just got my X-star that I ordered from dream-seller on Ebay. Unfortunately it seems to be defective - there's a sharp purple line right down the middle of the monitor that fades a bit towards the top. It's really unfortunate too because otherwise the monitor is fantastic - very minor backlight bleed on the left side that could likely be fixed. frown.gif

Pictures of line:

Is there anything I can do to fix this, or am I stuck paying shipping back to Korea and cutting my losses?

Hey just wanted to give you guys an update on this. I contacted dream-seller immediately with the pictures and within 24 hours had an address and FedEx account number to use to ship the monitor back. When asked if I wanted a refund or replacement I of course opted for the replacement - other than the obvious defect the monitor was pristine with very little BLB and no other dead pixels. However there were a few hiccups in getting the replacement monitor - I checked out using a guest account on both Ebay and Paypal (I don't normally use either). I had an Ebay transaction number to verify the sale and a Paypal receipt number to verify the payment, they could find neither in their (ebay's? paypal's?) system. By examining one of the URLs Ebay sent me I was able to deduce my guest account name, and this seemed to help. I was promised a replacement, but it took another 2 weeks due to so many recent orders (I blame you guys tongue.gif ). Throughout the entire process dream seller was extremely courteous and professional. I just finished setting up the replacement and the monitor is not only pixel perfect, but 0 BLB (?!). At least not that my eyes can discern.

TL;DR Don't use guest accounts to make the replacement process simpler. Got the new XStar and it's beautiful - worth every penny and then some.

I haven't installed any patch, and haven't had a game not recognize 96hz running 780TI's in SLI. Even with two monitors on one 780TI, with one at 120hz, and the other at 110hz. I just used NVCP.

As an example, without that driver, some games may run at 60Hz even if you have 96Hz set in your NVCP. But with that driver the games will be able to tell that your monitor is capable of 96Hz, 120Hz etc.

It has nothing to do with OCing, but getting programs to recognize that you OCed.

You don't need it with AMD cards because with AMD cards I believe that the method of OCing is using CRU. CRU allows you to set "native" resolutions, which games will recognize.

Ie for me was BF4 displaying 60hz and not 110 and 96

SLI is limited to a pixel clock of 400MHz on 6-series cards (possibly 7-series cards too).

For SLI at 96Hz you are below the 400MHz clock cap so you don't need to worry about using the patcher.

For your single 780Ti you don't need the full patcher.

So for both of the usage scenarios you described you don't need the full patcher.

But like ToastyX mentioned, there are 3 scenarios where you do need the full patcher.

For dual-link DVI you should need the normal patcher for going above 330MHz pixel clock, unless Nvidia changed their drivers. I'll check next time I update my drivers.

Is the latest stable drivers for AMD the best for this monitor overclocking?
post #16778 of 25935
I just popped over to ToastyX's thread at monitortests and found this:

"Titan and GTX 780 cards do not need the full patch for SLI."

I figured that the pixel clock limit imposed on 6-series cards and older was a software (driver) limitation (thus the patcher) and also Nvidia basically saying, "If you want to run 2560 x 1440 at 120Hz and have SLI, you have to buy 7-series cards or Titans" (Even though GTX 5XX and 6XX cards are completely capable of running 2560 x 1440 at 120Hz).

Sneaky, Nvidia, sneaky. Intentionally crippling perfectly good hardware to force people to upgrade.

I know that this post isn't anything new but it just dawned on me.

Next time I update my drivers (I have SLI GTX 780s) I will see if I still need the patcher with those drivers.

Hmmm...

I guess the best I'm going to get is 96hz:thumbsdow

I was really hoping for 120

he told me how to use CRU with my AMD card and answered all my questions. just saying!
