I haven't tested it on different refresh rates yet, I've only played all my games at 96hz. I have noticed most of my games now run at around 70+ C on a GTX 560ti Twin Frozr. Where as before they'd be around 10C cooler. A lot of my games now require a constant 90%+ usage from my card. That's most likely due to just a huge increase of pixel density from 1680x1050 to 2560x1440 (at least in my case)

If your PC is powerful enough to run over 96fps @ this resolutin then it's entirely possible you get the temp increase because it's playing at higher frames/s. That's what happened to my card on my old monitor and I had to force vsync on to lock frames at 60.

My HD 5770 certainly worked with my Catleap.

In fact, my HD 5770 works amazingly, even showing my BIOS perfectly every time. But my Catleap was a 2B.

So then it has to be motherboard related if your also have a 5770 and can see the bios fine.

Why would you want to have a monitor at 96Hz and your FPS locked at 60? And if vsync auto locks your frames to 60, then are you sure the 96Hz is really working?

Get another monitor.

Unfortunately.

That's what I do right now to see my BIOS, as my Qnix doesn't show BIOS on my GTX 680.

I was referring to my previous 20" monitor not the current QNIX. Sorry I probably didn't make that clear enough.

Qnix monitors have uniformity issues when overclocked. They may be fine at stock, but once you start going higher, the screen tends to get patchy.

The heat is due to the card working slightly hard to keep up with the higher refresh rate - it doesn't downclock as far when idle. I have that same problem with my GTX 680, but then again, I have a complicated 3-monitor setup with hack drivers and mixed refresh rates...

Yeah, I had a heck of a time figuring out that I could connect my DVI-I Dual Link port to an X-star if I just used a DVI-D Dual Link cable (which comes with the monitor). It just bypasses the analog pins which the monitor does not use.

This is the most correct explanation as far as I can tell:

Arrived today in the mail. Set it up and it OCs to 120Hz using CRU and LCD - reduced settings

Verified. Thank you thumb.gif

The "problem" could also be construed to be with your motherboard. Either way, the BIOS screen isn't talking to the monitor - they speak different languages.
