I've now been able to OC to 120hz without any issue.

Good to hear. I once had a scare - booted my PC and display was extremely corrupted. Was worried for ~10mins before realising last run I'd altered CRU settings but hadn't restarted, then forgotton all about it tongue.gif

Might be the memory OC that caused the problem - since OCing would use memory more quickly (right?) increasing the risk of instability.

Just ordered a qnix from ipsledmonitors.com

Overall I paid a little more than I had if I went with an ebay seller, but I found comfort in that I have 30 days to make sure the blb/deadpixels don't bother me if it ends up being excessive where I can either return it for a full refund(they pay shipping) or I can rma it and replace it.

So i thought this was pretty funny and you guys might enjoy it. I play shadowrun on PC quite often and it is safe to say it is one of my favorite one off half completed FPS games. One of the neat parts about the game is that it is cross platform with Xbox so i play with a lot of console gamers. Well i get lots of hate mail mostly concerning me being to good and accusations of cheating. Well i will be the first to say i by no means "cheat" in its normal form. What i have come to realize is that from a console gamer's capability standpoint that may not be completely true. Just to quantify this idea i have a few statistics and specs to run by for your comparison and interest.

Xbox:
1. runs the game at 720p(1280x720 to be exact)
2. runs with a frame in advance rate of 3-5(input to visual response ratio effecting)
3. Uses a controller or gamepad
4. no real quality enhancements(AA, FXAA, etc)
5. Many play on standard TVs (big input lag)
6. limited to 30FPS (if that)
7. Runs on a standard flash or HDD
8. etc

My PC
1. Runs game at 1440p(4 times the resolution and immersion)
2. Set to run the game at 1 frame in advance (1:1 ratio from input to display at least on the processing level)
3. Using a gaming mouse rated at 6400DPI with the precision off(no pixel interpolation) and 1:1 pointer speed ratio
4. 16xAA, 16x AASF, FXAA, AA trans, HQ texture rendering, etc
5. one of the lowest input lag monitors around(easily 2-4 times as fast on average)
6. 120hz running at 241FPS to reduce mouse input fluidity to visual response(4 times as fast with 8 times as fast response vector)
7. SSD 560mb/s average.
8. i am sure there is more

Now i don't want to get too off topic but a lot of this is tied to the Qnix's specs and response possibilities. It also shows one of the major reasons i think most games are not opting to become cross platform(especially on a FPS basis). On average my score when i am actually trying (and not gauging myself to the "fun" factor) get 30-40% better scores than even seasoned players on console on kill/death ratio(when i run into another PC player i can usually tell).

So with this being said maybe i do "cheat" rolleyes.gif

Hopefully this is not too off topic and some of you guys find it interesting.

IIRC, Microsoft trialled cross-platform online but abandoned the idea when they realised PC gamers destroyed xboxers. It's not cheating, but nor is it fair. But then, console gaming isn't fair either - same hardware, but lag compensation can sometimes farour certain people.

How old is this game? 241fps with all those settings is huge.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shadowrun_%282007_video_game%29 - I have every fix patch and performance optimization that has ever become available and lots of little self made performance tweaks. You can't actually cheat as it is all handled server side. I can run at around 260fps avg but keep it at a multiple of the refresh to avoid tearing. The Qnix has made me a terror in the shadowrun community due to the increase of performance.

It is still kinda a shame that the gaming industry/community is segmented by platform. Lag compensation is definitely a band aid on a bullet hole and massively aids individuals sometimes. I ad my share of it while i was still playing halo from time to time with friends.

Anyone have any problems overclocking 2-3 of these monitors on one desktop? Looking to buy 2 or 3 and wondering if i can OC all of them at once without any issues or difficulties..

Edit: Using Xfire 2 x 7970s

Well it's a no brainer PC gamers have a clear advantage over console players. Just comparing aiming with a mouse vs a stick shows such an unfair advantage. Props for the pro console players though, put me with a controller and I'll suck balls compared to when I play on my PC.

Which internal connector powers the back light array?? Can someone post a picture?

I was so careful when taking it apart and doing the tape mod. The only thing I can thing of is that when I was yanking the internal plugs out I pulled one of the wires up slightly from its contact from within the connector... Could this be possible?
