Of course. Up to 120Hz. Not a whole lot of difference to me even trying games I could push 120+ like CS Source. Not everyone's brains perceive this as well or as much as others; that's not news. I came from a really slow old TN Cinema Display I got from work and I never noticed any ghosting on that ancient POS either. When I upgrade my GPU setup I'll give it a shot again; why not.

Fine I acknowledge that higher Hz is a major selling point for many people and of course accounts for a large part of the huge popularity of these displays but I really think anyone who feels they are simply all about the higher Hz is missing the forest for the trees.

After you get used to 120hz you really cant go back. Yesterday i fired up Bioshock, and while the FPS was 130fps (inside, on High settings) it felt stuttery/laggy or just plain weird - thought my video card was throttling or something and needed a reboot. Turns out the monitor was at 60hz...

As long as your careful - opening it up isnt that bad, i had to do mine 4 times tongue.gif (first time was to replace the stand, 2nd time was to bend the metal frame and do tape mod, 3rd time was to bend it better, 4th time was to add paper insert thingies to fine tune the bleed)

Although on the 3rd attempt i thought i ripped one of the LED ribbon things, i think its just tape used to secure it. God i was scared, thought i would turn it on and only half the panel would light up.

Yeah I remember back in the day, my brother will be using his CRT monitor at 60hz and I will go crazy unless I could run it at least at 75hz or the flickering will drive me nuts biggrin.gif

True though, like I didnt really buy it for gaming so OCing was not my main concern.

I can barely push modern games maxed out above 60fps anyways.

I dunno you guys, I will guy a high end cable today to see if it does anything, if it fixes, it I will order a mono price cable and return the expensive one.

If I really got desperate. I suppose I could order another one from ipsledmonitors.com and just decide which I would like to keep and return the other one.

The best part is not "smoothness" but lower motion blur if you have higher Hz.

The OC for me was the cherry on top, I'd been watching the Korean monitors for many months but jumped on the XStar as it had the semi-matte screen coating I was after. The OC is nice, but all it gives me is smoother window movement as I cannot push 120fps on my current system.

Cherry on top is a good way to put it.

Though aren't "smoothness" and "low blur" two sides of the same coin?

The coin bein 120Hz?

They're very different. Play a movie back at 10Hz and that's not smooth. Play it back at 60Hz and it's very smooth.
Play a game where g2g is 1 second and it won't matter if you have 300Hz, it'll be very blurry. 60Hz at 1ms g2g would be much less blurry.

Well, the coin being the overall visual "positive effects" from a higher refresh rate, ideal when matching the frames per sec.

Or at least keeping a multiple of each other. 120hz looks and feels better at 240FPS using a frame limiter rather than adding yet another filter on the screen(vsync)

Just tried the new WHQL 327.23 Nvidia driver. First I went to 60hz, then installed the driver, then used the nvlddmkm-patcher-1.2 and all went well. Running on 120hz now and all seems good. thumb.gif
