No one can know for sure, but some people have had the yamakasis oced for almost a year now and no issues. But probably doesn't cause damage.

thanks

someone? smile.gif

I guess it would be pointless to ask the same question when not overclocked? The longevity of these monitors? My old monitor is 4 years old. Hoping these can last that long.

Thanks.

I don't think they've been out very long. But they use the same panels used in name brand items. I'd be more concerned about something like the power brick (easily replaced) going out, than the panel itself.

The most intensive stuff I've tried is 1080p high bitrate anime - not much of a comparison to yours.
Once I get back I'll do dead pixel/BLB test, fixes if necessary, OC, then SVP. But this thread will be 30 pages longer and this discussion will be in the past, but I'll still post my results.

Also - smooth motion is the frame blending option from SVP but better. So use smooth motion but not the blending option in SVP.

Great info thanks thumb.gif I actually had both on the last time i tried it which explains a lot of the stuttering i was experiencing.

When you get your monitor setup i do recommend trying timescapes out with madvr + smooth motion + SVP + jinc4. It is the most beautiful video(PG LOL) i have ever seen. I am referring to the 1440p version.

Do you guys know how to remove the watermark?

I searched here but didn't find anything.

One more question, I didn't really understand, or the tutorial didn't really explain it. I am running at 120hz, if I update my video drivers, does that change? Do I have to do it each time?

If you update video drivers, before you update you need to unpatch the driver and turn test mode off. install new driver, repatch driver and put test mode back on.
