Yeah I reinstalled Windows the other day and have been running at 60Hz since and really don't notice a huge IQ difference 2D or 3D as a result of it not being darkened at present by OC, with or without an ICC. Though, of course, it would be better if it did not do that at all even though ICCs and other tweaks can generally compensate for it. But it certainly doesn't look a ton better at 60Hz without the darkening to me like at least one dude claimed (though that guy came off as kinda hard to please in general).

Just for the hell of it I decided to try to go as high as precision x would let me, and I got up to 134hz (was silky smooth), for some reason increasing the bar farther nothing happens. This is on the latest stock NVidia drivers I didn't do any patching but I did use the catleap inf drivers.

At the moment I am only running a single gtx 560ti and I run 96hz 24/7 but at 134hz it just felt much smoother without any real side effects except for maybe slight image retention but I rarely experience it especially with a screensaver.

Anyways here are pics:

That is pretty awesome without tweaking CRU settings and cables. I would say you got a damn good monitor.

Are you using the stock cable?
Also do you notice any screen uniformity issues?

I had a nightmare trying to get mine just right at +120hz and might want to try defaulting and giving the precision tool.

what's this precision tool?
edit - nvm evga precision x.
Yeh still couldn't get a stable 120hz. You guys are lucky.

not using the stock cable, though I didn't try going over 96hz when I used the stock cable. I use http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0010CSDM4/ref=oh_details_o01_s00_i00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 and the cable is beautiful.
Not noticing any dark spots, looks pretty much the same as 96hz for me except a little bit darker (obviously using a color profile otherwise it looks ****ty) and the image retention is more noticeable vs 96hz which is still negligible for me.

I'm using the cable that came with my QNIX monitor. I'm completely stable at 130Hz but when I cranked it to the max of 139Hz using Precision every 30 seconds or so the screen would just freeze for a few seconds and then come back to life. I backed it down in 1Hz increments to 135Hz and was still getting the freezes so I assume that 130-135Hz is the max I'm going to get with this monitor. What a ripoff! biggrin.gif

Well I was kind of saying the opposite that I don't think 60Hz is a big improvement personally; that even though it gets darker 96Hz is not "worse" me.
