It´s not really the same though is it? The overall picture change when going to 120hz is pretty dramatic compared to some BLB. People can whine all they want, just voicing my opinion. But yeah I might try some of the custom ones, but for me so far the "asus_pb278q" one seems to be best.

I use the Menacing tuba 96hz one.. But yes the color difference is dramatic.. I don't know how people run 120hz all the time.. If I wanted a dull monitor I would have stayed with a TN panel.. But for games I don't notice it as much as most are darker games anyways..

You need to raise the gamma in the windows calibration tool. I'm at around a 1/4 from the top. Gamma makes the monitor real dark at high oc's.

Well the pixel clock patcher is still recommended for NV users but apparently may not be necessary. Though I would confirm in something you can run at 96 or 120 FPS (like CS:Source graphics stress test) that it does cap fps at your refresh rate w/ vsync enabled (and not at 60). Just because it says in the control panel that it's running at that refresh and/or is in 2D does not mean that 3D games are as well. I am pretty sure that you do need something else like the Catleap 2B INF or use Nvidia Inspector per-game to enable the higher Hz in games if you just use the NVCP and not CRU to set the refresh rate.

You could also use something like powerstrip to actually calculate the refreshed lines to make sure of what your refresh rate is getting. Vsync settings can be off limiting or sometimes conflicting with games something that has been discussed and seen earlier in the forum.

Yeah I forgot about that cause it was only mentioned here for the first time(s) recently and I don't think I'd heard that app mentioned before for anything in well over ten years. Anyway yes not every game will respond correctly. That's the other reason I suggest CS:S--I know it does. Also almost everyone has it and it's also quick as can use the test from main menu (well once you have it installed).

I agree, i can´t run 120hz permanently. It does seem as if it slightly skews the colours a bit too. I will try out some different ones. Is there a tool to map refresh rates to different programs/exes and so on?

Nice job.and btw nice PSU wink.gif What is your disability exactly? Anyway it´s cool that you can still enjoy playing games smile.gif I finally got my new gfx so I could start using this monitor again, I only had it for like three days before i had to RMA my gfx.. the monitor is amazing, games look absolutely awesome!

Okay so i was able to get the panel out of the case however the metal frame around it was an issue. I felt like I was going to have to put too much pressure to pop it out. I can see what the problem is the frame is a little bowed out where the backlight bleed is. Can anyone please give some tips on removing the metal frame around the panel?
