After doing this my overall pixel clock for 1440p@120hz was only 443MHz. Getting the pixel clock as low as possible without rendering issues seemed to be what allowed me to go further in terms of refresh.

Great find. What are the settings you now use exactly?

This should be added to the OP for sure.

does anyone know for sure if this monitor uses PWM? There are some conflicting reports in this thread.

I see HuluStar raised his prices, but looks like Green-Sum still has the same price...

The one I received seems to have pretty bad BLB, I tried loosing the screws on every corner and the middle it seemed to help a little bit and made it not as bad but here are some pics of it after i loosened the screws. I sent out an email to green-sum to request for a replacement, I hope it goes smoothly. will keep you guys updated.





Tape mod won't fix that, the metal frame that holds the panel is not aligned properly. Mine was honestly as bad as yours, now it's perfect but it was a lot of trouble to fix it. From the way the backlight runs to the corners I would guess that your frame is making the panel far too concave.

Detailed instructions here:

A good analogy would be when you twist a wet cloth to rinse it, though with much less force (obviously). Imagine your holding the metal frame in your hands with your knuckles upwards, then you twist the frame in your hands by rotating your hands forwards.

does anyone else have an issue with green flash videos and no video playback for certain files after switching between overclocking the refresh rate? i have disabled hardware acceleration so im not sure whats causing it. any ideas? Cheers

Its quite bizarre, i have my 7970 connected to my qnix, and gtx 260 powering another monitor. Mkv works on the 260 but not on the 7970 when using windows media player (like it used too), and most flash videos work except those on tumblr, which work on neither screens!

Thanks for the response. Yeah, I was also assuming that it was a bent frame that was causing that. How long did it take you to fix the frame? Just out of curiosity, what made you decide to fix it instead of requesting for an exchange?

I'm not sure if its worth the hassle of going through all that trouble to get it fixed, although asking for an exchange is probably as troublesome as fixing it. Maybe I should just request for a partial refund instead and try to fix it.

Try videolan, sounds like a codec problem. WMP sucks.
