Yes the monitor is simple to OC. I use the EVGA Precision X OC tool and its a 2 step process. OC varies with quality of the monitor. 99% have at least been able to OC to 96hz. Only a few are stable up to 120-130hz without any artifact.

I asked a question and you responded with a snarky remark about the question instead of answering it. A yes or no would have avoided this, nor did the OP answer the question about the overall results from users here. I wanted some personal experiences from people as far as their results went. The OP didn't answer the video card question. It didn't answer how easily overclocked it is. I'm wondering what problems people have had, etc. Looking for personal experiences.

It's ok, though. I'm sorry I offended you for asking the question. My question remains open, though. That's what the forum is for. If anyone can provide me with some of their experiences with this monitor, it would be appreciated.

Thank you. Was a fix for the test mode ever found? The OP mentions hearing of one.

Mine hits 120hz with no issues..Not all will do that though..biggrin.gif

Sometimes people don't want to fill the thread up by the same questions being asked..But then they post EIGHT times telling you to look here when a simple ONE response of yes would have saved all this..And it would have not dragged on for 3 pages..wink.gif

I'm on an Asus 24" 120hz right now. It actually looks really good for a TN. I have no real complaints about it.

The only reason I'm looking at one of these is the resolution. I'd like to upgrade from 1080p,but I don't want to give up my refresh rate to do it. Ordering from Korea raises concerns, too.

I learned that a long time ago on here. I had one of those MSI 465 gold edition cards that unlocked to 470's. There was a thread for owners of that, and like this, potential buyers had some stress in regards to buying one based on the gamble of it unlocking.

This is really expensive stuff for a lot of people, and the questions are often for reassurance and a feeling of security before investing in the unknown.

That's what these threads are for, though.

Great thread guys.

I have a question for the 96Hz+ / 120Hz users.

Can you please look REALLY closely and check whether you have panel uniformity issues at higher than 96Hz? Use solid color backgrounds if it helps.

A few weeks back, I had the impression that most / all of those who were cranking the high overclocks were suffering from:

1) Panel uniformity issues

2) "Darkening" which is a gamma shift that can easily be corrected by software color calibration (I suppose it happens with 100% of users)

3) Image retention which was happening as a result of an image staying on the monitor for a good amount of time (I remember some reporting IR when they didn't expect it though) (I suppose this happens with 100% as well)

I am mostly concerned with the 1st, as the other two are not much of an issue (the 2nd can be corrected, the 3rd can be avoided)

Cheers!

Well then now i have a grip on what you were wanting. For any lack of understanding on my part i will offer my apologies and try and make up for it with my in-site as an owner of this monitor and several other.

First off overclocking: Really this can be as easy and as hard as you make regarding which method you use and the level of difficulty will be relative to the extent you are able to overclock and the stability said overclock will be. The general methods seem to be in order from easiest to hardest:

1. Nvidia OC tool. You virtually just move the slider and apply and check for stability.
2. NVCP custom resolution. This can be as simple as the first method but you can use the manual setting to set timings(which is where it can get tricky)
3. CRU this is almost the same as the last method but is the first to actually put it into the EDID of the driver and is registered by the system as an actual native resoluton(which can be beneficial in game recognition)

All of these methods are still reliant (when it comes to 120hz) on a patch to release the pixel patch limited on the drivers of your video card. I thus far haven't seen anyone mention this and we are essentially disregarding any searching. Without the pixel patch(depending on your GPU) you will very likely not be able to go above 108hz due to the 300mhz or 400mhz(SLI) cap on pixel count(being the data sent over the DVI cable). With the patch you can break the limit and hit 120hz in almost all instances with the Qnix but stability may very(lines). This is where the different methods can have advantages at the higher difficulty(really just more steps). There has been a very small sample size of reports that they have been able to get 120hz without the patch. This may very well be something related to the edition of card 600 or 700 series or the version of the drivers(beta?)

Using the NVCP or CRU you can use a reduced frequency count to reduce the pixel clock thus getting a more stable overclock. CRU gives you a bit more settings to toy around with but is a pain as it requires a restart due to it hacking the driver EDID. This leaves many with using the NVCP to test with and then using CRU to save so it is set as a native resolution. The extra settings in CRU over NVCP have had no positive effect on overclocking i have been able to find thus far.

There is also the custom catleap driver to take into account. This should be unneeded if using CRU(hacking the EDID) but there has been several poeple(myself included) that have had to use it to get games to see the resolution. Also, for games without a refresh rate setting after getting the resolution set in CRU you will need to go into the 3D settings in the NVCP for that specific game and set "proffered refresh" to "highest available" to force the game to use the higher refresh.

I hope this is helpful in your endeavor. I also again express my regret in not seeing your posts actual purpose(even though i don't think the structure of the post supported it)

OneGun i completely agree on both counts
