post #6941 of 25888
I didn't notice any retention at 96hz, but with SLI and dual monitors the most I can do is 85hz on both monitors simultaneously which is just fine for me. Both monitors seem perfectly capable of 120hz alone though, but its not a big deal.

I actually find the picture quality to be a bit degraded at 120hz, since the gamma gets lower. 85hz I see no difference in picture at all but the extra 25hz helps the smoothness of the mouse a lot.

96 was good too, but I can't use it with SLI for whatever reason.

So I just ordered a Qnix Qx2710 Pixel Perfect from Green-Sum since it was the cheapest pixel perfect monitor (except red-cap) and had lots of great feedback here in the members list. Im currently running a Nvidia Gtx 460 768mb and was wondering if I might be able to play LoL at the highest res? Maybe dota2? My graphics card is overclocked like hell (love this card) and gets 1440 points in 3Dmark extreme (around 6970) and my cpu is an i7 2600k. And also, is this the right plug for the power supply?

Also you will not have color retention as much or at all if you optimize your monitor timings. I will personally say 120hz is worth it IF you use color correction and if you optimize each variable in the overclock(cable, Gfx port, timings, driver setup). Also i and others have found graphics card overclocking and monitor overclocking at the same time is most often a no no and can have adverse effects. If you are going to triple these and game you are going to need serious graphics power to maintain even 60fps. SLI GTX760s may not be up to the task for many games. The memory is big enough you should not have any issues rendering older games even at 96 or 120hz. Newer games are generally going to be a different story.

Perhaps you misunderstood my comments or perhaps I didn't explain the 24 hour comment very well. I was speaking about leaving things on the screen for 24 hours during gaming or whatever you are doing. Yes, gaming for 24 hours is probably not likely, but there are cases where things can be left on the screen for an excessive amount of time. Regardless, I get your point. As far as optimizing the timings, I'm not sure I understand what that even means. For example, if I set a certain HZ, the timings or pixel clocks are at a set rate, meaning I cannot change them individually and have them stick. They always change together. Perhaps there are some other timings you are speaking about? Or perhaps there is a way to get those timings to stick somehow? Either way, I'll try and see if I can do some research on that. I'd certainly like to run at 96HZ without the image retention.

As far as using the GTX 760 in SLI with three monitors, it will more than likely be in 1080P mode. I will have to disagree with you about the FPS with these cards. A friend of mine has the exact same setup and can get some serious FPS in most games. Now, are we talking BF3 with triple 1440's at max settings? Probably not. However, I don't play FPS (first person shooter) games. The games (and simulations) that I run on this computer I'm able to max out. The same goes for that friend of mine (we are into the same games and simulations - rFactor/iRacing).

In conclusion I'd like to point out that these were just my experiences, and in no way did I make that post to infer that others would get the exact same results if they were to OC their monitor. It seems as though you might have thought that I was trying to scare people away from experimenting with their own monitors. That simply wasn't the case. If my post made it sound that way, I do apologize.

Cheers

You're going to run out of vram reeaaaaally fast at 1440p.
In progress.

I wanted to post some results of overclocking to 96HZ. It appears that I start to get some image retention at around an hour of use. The very odd thing is that the image retention only happens in the top right corner of the monitor. Very odd. So, if I do OC to 96HZ I have to be very careful about the amount of time I do it. I have come to the conclusion that it really just isn't worth doing if I'm going to get this image retention. It does eventually clear itself after setting the monitor back to 60HZ, but what would happen if you left the monitor like that for 24 hours? Or perhaps even longer? Would there be permanent damage? I have actually gone up to 120HZ, but the colors were really dark and washed out. I know there are ICC profiles that can alleviate some of the color problems, but if the image retention is so bad, is it worth it?

I agree that it is strange, I only get image retention in the top right of my monitor as well!
The good news is, even after 8 or 9 hours of a static screen (for the team! lol) it goes back to normal at 60hz within about 15-20 minutes.
I have no problems running this thing at 120hz, and I think I will continue to do so for the most part.

I don't seem to get the 'dimming' or washing out of colors that others are reporting though, maybe it's just my eyes lol.

No. These monitors do not work with either the PS3 or the 360. Sorry.

Well, that's good to hear, then. I might consider 96HZ again at some point. I don't get washed out colors at 96HZ at all. It seems to be perfect. When I switch to 120HZ, that's when the colors get washed out and darker. Seems like the IQ is worse as well.
post #6950 of 25888
Im gonna search this thread, but does anyone have any overclocking CRU settigns for 96hz? I can even do it with reduced settings. There is one row of pixels that turn red. Even tried the "reduce dvi frequency at high-resolution" button and no luck. Hmmmm
