Will still probably pull the trigger on one of these regardless as 1440p seems the way to go. smile.gif

when I get mine I gotta see how high it oc's. if it oc's to 120 ill be willing to take a bridge off my 7950s and see if it still works.

It reminds me my EliteBook:

I assume you're referring to that bottom portion of the bezel.

It comes like that out of the box. He simply painted the bezel above it that was glossy.

Welp, pretty sure i should be receiving mine tomorrow after the long delay because of the long weekend, getting the tempered glass version so will update with pics... if i'm not too devastated by some deal breaking defect.

I have a spyder elite to calibrate with so the gamma issue at higher refresh rates won't be a issue for me i assume, but does anyone know if it is potentially doing damage to the components by over clocking to 96 or 120hz ??
I'm back baby!!!

Basically every time I get a new cable and OC to 120hz I notice a little line here or some static there. I think I've finally found a cable that works for me 100%. The only cable I cannot try are the 3ft ones, so its 6ft only for me. I've also tested both DVI ports with all cables.

1. Stock cable, 28awg, , OC to 120hz standard I get horizontal lines everywhere on the start screen. Tried front porch method and noticed a few lines playing games. 110hz is perfect.

2. Monoprice 24awg 6ft. . Basically the same as the stock, maybe even worse. 110hz is perfect.

3. Bluejeanscable.. 24awg 6ft. Worked fine for about a week and noticed some static when opening an app. It must have always been there but it took a bit to notice. 110hz is perfect.

4. Cable Matters 28awg 6ft. OC'd at 120hz on standard and noticed just a little static on top right, all other cable would be unusable on standard. Did the front porch method and tested all of the other issues I had with other cables and so far its been perfect 100% . I may notice something in the future but its been a few days now and I have seen no distortion whatsoever.

So for you guys asking for cable recommendation I've had the best luck with this one:

Hope this helps someone. Your mileage may vary.. thumb.gif

I should have read your findings earlier, I am really disappointed with Monoprice, it's worst than the default cable. mad.gif Fortunately the default cable still gives good results. Sigh.

Yes i need a cable *slightly* better than the default - but i cant order that cable from amazon.com (they dont ship it to Canada, and amazon.ca does not carry it frown.gif )

Anyone wanna buy one and sell/ship it to me? smile.gif

Try contacting Monoprice to see if they will ship to Canada?

Yea i tried a 24AWG from monoprice - it was worse than the 28AWG default....kinda need someone with an extra DLDVI cable that can do 120hz without artifacts tongue.gif My QNIX can hit 135hz, but anything over 119hz theres slight green scan lines.

I think a better quality cable and/or faster timings can fix this - but i cant find any times lower than 459Mhz@120hz for Radeon cards unfortunately
