If he shipped it with Fedex probably and how much? It depends where you live, now if dream seller shipped it to me with EMS or DHL I wonder if I would of got a customs fee? Hmmm interesting though.

No there should never be any fees or duty in the US period. That's exactly what "free trade" means. Strange that only a few randoms have gotten these things. Though I do not know if mine came Fed Ex or what it just showed up at my office after only 2 days.

There is a ton of info on this topic and getting games to use hte overclocked refresh rate. Here is a brief summery but you can find more detail by searching "force refresh" or "vsync" in this thread.

1. having the refresh in the EDID by using CRU rather than NVCP
2. Using the catleap driver
3. Vsync will sync to the games standard refresh in most instances. There is a "preferred refresh" but it only works with 120hz to my knowledge.
4. Vsync in game and driver level can also differ so you may need to toggle them back and forth to see which one works.
5. 120hz /= 120FPS. Even is you turn off vsync and you exceed 60FPS it does not mean you are running at 120hz
6. If you google "force refresh" there is a lot off tutorials regarding getting higher refresh rates working with older and not natively compatible games(most involve config change at the file level)

While we are at it, in CRU where you manually define your custom pixel clocks and refresh rate it shows 96.002 Hz as actual refresh rate. Should I tweak my total pixels values so that it matches 96.000 or it doesn't really matter and I can aim for the lowest pixel clock possible?

Ahhh good. I'm having the same problem that you had, but my episodes are occurring well past boot and are accompanied by all GPU fans going to 100%.
Temps are fine and stable throughout, so I hope my solution is the same as yours.

I live in Cali, and I was not charged anything extra when Green sum shipped the monitor to me. He shipped it with UPS.
post #6028 of 25893
here is my proof, ill get one of the monitor itself on here in a sec.
Bought it though dream seller, but they delayed a day when they sent it to me. But to win me over they gave me a 3 percent off coupon.... i dont know why they bothered hahaha. I received it in two days, apparently it shipped wensday and it got here thursday today.

Is there any disadvantages by trying 120hz. can it damage my monitor cause I was aiming at 96Hz but will love that preferred refresh rate option but I also think that doesn't work in SLi systems.

im curious of this as well, i would assume its possible to fry the board. i have heard of people having heat issues with their korean ips boards. Otherwise i would think it should be alright.


edit, i did just get mine and im running it just fine at 120hz out of the box.
