Also, although I haven't tested this, running multiple 120Hz monitors in a multi-monitor setup will probably show 120Hz in the blur busters test since the composition rate will be the same for all three monitors.

Yep, I have dual 120hz monitors and the test works as expected. When I used to have a primary 120hz monitor and secondary 60hz monitor, I noticed that Windows would alter the refresh rate of the app as soon as it passed fully into either monitor. If you open a completely fresh browser on the 120hz display with no other instances running, it might work properly. It possibly depends on how whichever particular browser (Chrome or Firefox b24) enumerates displays and refresh rates as well.

Yes, I think if you re-open the browser directly on the 120Hz monitor then you'll get 120Hz reported. In that case it may not be the composition rate but Chrome itself not updating the browser's internal refresh rate.

Wow nice! That would explain why everywhere except that test tells me 115hz

I just played BF3 this morning and I do see a small blur or screen shake in the middle of my screen when gaming. any way to test it in the operating system? BTW i overclocked my gpu. Can it be due to bad overclocking. Also after that switched to lower clocks while in game and still same issue. My issue is i don't want to get a new GPU if that's not the issue.

Could it also be due to bad DVI cable. if it is will a 3m 24AWG cable be enough

I recently returned my bad hp monitors, after an almost 2 month long fight with new egg..

My question is about "where and whom to buy from"

theres a couple in amazon for $310, new egg has 9one for $369 i think.

And ebay has them as low as $289.00

amazon told me the return is determined by the seller itself, i contacted him 2 hours ago.

Now if they do pay, 30 back shipping on amazon an/or new egg is it worth the extra expense?

Im scared of getting 6+ dead pixels or a DOA and having to pay half of the monitor cost to send it back to korea.

What sellers are good to buy from on ebay, do any offer return shipping or any return option plans?

Is it stil lthe same qnix and xstar? Xstar is on sell by dreamseller atm

I am leaving for a float trip so i can't be too detailed. Overclocking my 570s seemed to make the monitor overclock less stable so i removed it.

The cable being 24AWG seems to be the best. The shorter the cable the better but as long as you keep it at or under 6ft(3m) it should be fine.

So my monitor shipped Friday and it will be tomorrow. Holy crap!

Got a SquareTrade question... anyone know if they will still cover you if you would do something that would probably void the warranty? For instance, I want to open my monitor to unscrew the part of the stand. Thanks!

I can also get a 1.5M Gold plated 28AWG Cable. Will that be good enough. i suppose the stock cable is to weak to handle the resolution

You keep asking like we know for a fact, but really all we can do is recommend based on what has generally given people success. The monitor itself might not be able to handle a higher refresh, or it might be a bad cable. It's all about trial and error. thumb.gif
