I can OC on stock NVidia drivers but only up to 99hz, any higher and the test fails. Didn't want the hassle with test mode and 96hz is good enough at the moment.

Ahh got it.Thank you
Do you guys just use the stock DVI cables and power brick?Or should i buy new ones?

I use the stock power brick but just changed the power plug cable to a spare power supply cable I had laying around so I didn't have to use a plug adapter, used the stock dvi cable and didn't have any issues with 120hz but changed to a 24awg cable anyways, specifically the Comprehensive Cable X3V-DVI6.

First person to PM me gets a 30% off Square Trade coupon. It's only good for today (24th). So there's little time left. If you've purchased a Qnix/X-Star within the past 30 days but haven't gotten a warranty yet, you can get it now for $35.

If the frame is tight, how do I fix that? From what I see, the metal frame isn't straight through. There are gaps between the metal frame and the screen.


Maybe I should of took some pic. I already opened it like 5 times already, lol

I taped the top of the screen all the way to the first view able pixels. If you turn the screen on while its open you will see about a 8 pixel boarder all the way around the screen I put tape on the frame and overlapped it onto this boarder.
by shim I mean I just put something to elevate one corner to put pressure on the corner. I noticed with pressure on that corner pushing toward the viewing side of the screen in that corner the light bleed went away. I was also able to tell that the frame is bent by looking at the side of the frame.
If your looking at frame to for bent spots from the top your looking at the wrong spot the gaps don't give that much bleed. But those gaps your seeing between the frame and the matte screen do give of a little light. But it effects a few pixels from the boarder. But if you did the tape mod like I said to do then you would be taping over those gaps.

But most of the bleed people complain about is frame issue, frame is bent or too tight. When you see the huge spots that are 100 pixels deep into the display those spots are from the frame. So you need to bend the panel in the right spots to get it right. With my monitor pushing on it before I opened it did nothing. Soon as I got it open I moved the panel and could tell right away what was causing light bleed. But the best way to identify this is with the screen on and open. So open it up turn it on with a black screen and be careful what you touch and start lifting corners lightly and see what it does to the backlight then shim it when you see the problems spots.

Well sadly I seem to be able to confirm that one crossfire bridge just doesn't cut it for this monitor with pixel clock above 390mhz. I'm really hoping to see more people test this out. Its just laggy with trifire or crossfire one bridge at higher refresh rate. When I have two bridges then everything is good. Oddly enough is some games will crash on laod screen without two bridges installed, so people take note if anyone is having games crashing on start up or when you apply 120hz then consider using two bridges.
This really goes against all logic I previously would have had about how crossfire works. The reason I'm sad is now my third GPU is useless unless I bump it down to 60hz and I don't need three GPU's for 60hz.

You guys with two bridges installed already can you try to do more testing with one bridge vs. two bridges @ high refresh rates. Just so we can get more feedback about this ?
