post #2441 of 25922
Alright guys, did more research and trying to figure out bandwidth issues and from somewhere I read it can take it with a 24AWG cable? Also are the colors worse from 60hz vs 120hz? Don't you just turn up the brightness or do a re-calibration at the refresh rate??

Look at the water reflections too in the default image it doesn't enhance the mud at the shallow bed of the river and there is so much white that it distorts the details - reflections of the clouds and trees. etc etc etc

The best way to explain it is by looking at this video and reading through the campaign:

I thought I was the only one who thought the screen looked like it had a blue tint on everything. All the other color profiles that I have tried applying makes the screen even more blue than the default though. Not sure why...

Hamzatm Speaks the truth. A LOT of the profiles where practically useless to me. I finally found one that is actually for 96hz that worked for me. Also running your timings different can have a pretty good difference like others have said. After a massive amount of tweaking i was able to get 120hz identical to 60hz with the profile set. Heck i have 144hz working as well but i can't quite get screen uniformity perfect and little things bother me so i had to drop it to 120hz rolleyes.gif

I assume by 'tweaking' you mean in the controls in the graphics driver control panel?

Less than 5% of owners weren't able to O/C to at least 96 and 45% reached 120hz. Pretty good.

Especially when you tale in consideration that some people are still using stock cables, and a low - mid end GPU.

I am using a combination of:

1. CRU settings(not just LCD reduced)
2. The profiles that have been posted here
3. different cables from monoprice 24AWG
4. Combination of different ports on my Gfx cards(yes even trying swapping the primary and secondary cards to seek out the best possible port)
5. Brightness settings on the monitor itself

It is a big game of trial and error to find the sweet spot for each unique panel. I could even do more shuffling the variables to try and get 144hz but quite frankly i am done putting so much time into it.
