I've been running at 120HZ 24/7. Leaving no screen saver or power saving option. Seems great so far!!! No burn in or image retention either.

When I got my GTX 760, I remember reading that there was basically no chance of damage from overclocking your HZ.

Well, somehow after adding a custom resolution via CRU it can only be run in 16bit mode : /
edit: could it be my custom resolution colliding with it?
edit2: now even 16-bit disappeared oh well..
Now I remembered why I started using nvcpl instead.

I hear the picture/gamma is affected when running at 120hz for some people. 96hz was supposed to be the sweet spot that everyone can hit without any issue.

I should get mine some time next week. I feel so dumb for buying so many TN panels if this monitor is truly as I've read. Gonna lose a lot of money reselling them.

I have SLI and it works fine for me.

Doesn't matter, mine is 120.00024 or something like that and it had no effect setting it directly to 120hz on the dote.

i feel so dumb for waiting as long as i did, this thing shoots my nice 27in samsung out of the water in terms of color, res, refresh rate, and size. Its so slender and clean cut i love it!

If I debezzle the monitor, will I still be able to attach it to VESA without making the custom board/glue thingy mentioned in the first post?

if your fps is higher than your refresh rate it does not matter, the monitor will only display as high as it supports. so if you have 96hz if you are getting 96 or above fps you will be using the optimum refresh rate, but if you want you can always set v sync and that will lock the fps so it does not go over your monitors refresh rate and it will try and hold the fps steady at your monitors refresh rate. Be warned though that setting v sync can cause you to expirence lower fps rates than if you were to just leave it off.

lower your pixel clock will most likely fix your issue here.

Except that's the cause of "screen tearing".
