Mine is very nearly stable, very, very occasionally I get a line but that's it - off stock cable.
I could probably get 120Hz stable if I tweaked all the settings down as far as possible, but that takes :effort: and my calibration is for the LCD Reduced profile, changing it would mean the colors would shift again, and since I don't have the calibrator anymore I don't want my colours to be off.
I don't see any side effects at on my monitor @120hz anymore. This took every form of tweaking currently mention in this whole thread(which i have been on since it starred). The amount of performance for this monitor seems to be very relative to the amount of effort(at least initial effort) you put into it. I have posted LOADS of info regarding what i have done for others to see and possibly replicate. I recommend going through the OP very thoroughly and take a look at some of my very long posts(search as i have no intention of posting them for a third time and they are very easily found by searching "front porch" or "custom timings").
Right now i don't see any problem with colors, gamma or uniformity unless i get up to about 131hz. And yes after using all manual timings and settings your monitor will essentially be set "different" than anyone else's so you will have to set the colors up manually or use a calibrator. As Moragg said it takes effort and is very similiar to overclocking a CPU manually(at least for me process wise). This is comparable to just upping the mulitplier VS doing all out with each variable and setting. You know which one will be better but there is a lot of people getting these that are not willing to read to much or put forth the effort. They are just going to switch the refresh and go. Well i am going to tell you right now that you are not going to get the best performance by just switching it to 120hz, it will work and may even work OK for some but not nearly as good as it could work. Heck if it worked with no issues or side effects this thread would likely be a LOT smaller.
Push comes to shove it IS possible to have 120hz rock stable for many of these with a little effort. I would say after all my tweaking i have about 25-30hz higher stability(if that makes sense) coming from "just" setting the refresh to 120hz.
