I went back to CCC color adjustments and my 120hz overclock is stable again. This might only be for AMD don't know. But if you guys are getting lines on black or dark screens with 120hz and your using windows color management. Might as well try disabling it and using CCC for color adjustment.
I will have to remember this when i get mine..Thank you..biggrin.gif

Two questions for you owners:
- did you mess with any of the application settings in nvidia control management for the games to work at 96 or 120 frames per second?
- do you use your maximum stable Overclock daily or do you turn it on only when you game, just to be safe?

And you really don't want judder. It's annoying as ****.
And nearly every movie, series and youtube video is 24p.

Ah, I get it now. I'm at 100hz, but i'm running on an 8800 Ultra. As soon as I get my GTX670 I'll see if I can pull 120hz, but if I can't, then I'll drop it to 96hz. Frankly, and I'll be honest here, but I'm really starting to hate these standardized ratios of what is appropriate for visuals and what is not. Clearly the math is appropriate, but there has to be a better way to reproduce the smoothest visuals possible without relying on interval frame rates.

My freight forwarder received the monitor today in FL, no delays despite the wrong address after all!

Monitor currently being airboxed to my country. I should have it by Monday once it clears customs.

Im a bit at my wits end, im really getting frustrating that I cant fix this problem

Basically the OC was working for me perfectly (not at 120 because of sometimes seeing a red line) I had it at 100hz

Now I restart the monitor and everytime a black screen flashes and I know the refresh rate has been reset to 59hz in the resolution settings
shows up as 100 in Nvidia but I take no notice of that tbh

Iv tried deleting the drivers and going into safe mode and deleting everything nvidia and installing a new driver and then I try the OC again and it worked but I restart the computer and the same problem will come back

where am I going wrong mad.gif

btw Im using ops method of oc

This is a super long post with details that might have nothing to do with this monitors review. I shared everything I felt was worth it.

The OverClocking:

OC'ed to 96Hz on my GTX 560. Doesn't go above 400Hz, even with the patch and CRU. It might not just be my GFX alone even my other specs are quite average.
OC'ed to 120Hz on a borrowed GTX 680. With nVidia control panel and patched drivers. Didn't tested for anything higher, didn't got much time to play with the card.

Update: The reason my GTX 560 didn't went above 400MHz was that the test mode was just visible on the desktop but it was never started for some reason.
So, these are the steps I took:
Reinstalled the drivers.
Patched the drivers.
Patched the SLI limits too, just in case.
Started the Test Mode.
Restarted the PC.
Created a 120 Hz custom Resolution in nVidia Control Panel and choose Automatic Timing.
It ran perfectly smooth.
I decided to see the highest I could go.
I went to 130Hz it wasn't supported.
So I changed the timing to manual and copied the information from this thread http://120hz.net/showthread.php?683-Overclocking-Quick-Start-Guide
I choose 130Hz instead of 120Hz and it was stable.
I went to 134 and it was stable too.
I went to 136 and started seeing one horizontal line in the center
At 137 the Screen Jiggled vertically and the lies increased to 5 -6.
I couldn't go higher then that.
I am running my monitor at 134 now but its only for testing and bragging rights.
I will run it at 60Hz normally.



.

Try that method. I don't think test mode was really enabled even though it might say test mode on the corner of your screen.

Just letting you guys know that dream-seller is dishonest and will not honor any replacement. Before fixing my monitor I sent the pictures to dream-seller and asked if there was anything he can do or offer me a replacement. I bought a pixel-perfect version and wouldn't make such a big deal if it wasn't for the massive amounts of back light bleed I got. His response was:
Quote:
"Hi, thank you for your message. Thank you for letting us know.

But we want to let you know that our listing clearly specified that "There could be backlight bleed or dust problem on the screen."

Plus I sent these photos to a Qnix technician for check. After examining the photos he got back to me to reply.
His answer was as below,
"Backlight bleed of this amount is considered normal among small and medium sized manufacturer's monitors. Since these manufacturers use 'B' grade panel, it's normal that the panel could have a little backlight bleeding and dust problem to a certain degree as well as a few defective pixels."

I understand that this kind of backlight bleeding can be disturbing especially in dark scenes, but would you please kindly understand that this is small sized manufacturer's monitor, therefore the panel is not in perfect condition? I hope for your understanding.
Warm Regards.


- dream-seller"



I never knew a back light bleed on both sides that takes up a good portion of your monitor was normal and non-faulty, not to mention one of the bleeds was a pale yellow color. I'm just lucky I had one dead pixel compared to the other members who had several defective pixels on theirs (he never honored a replacement for them either). Managed to fix the problem because the bleeding was apparent in every single picture/film/game I threw at the monitor. It was so strong I saw white hue running halfway up the monitor to the point where I eventually disassembled the display and corrected the problem myself from the frustration




tldr; don't buy from dream-seller

That seems to be happening a lot with them lately. Make sure you leave them a bad review on Ebay also.. Glad you were able to fix it..
