It's not just the frame, but the entire panel that is bent. I took the panel out and used some weights to even it out, but that only did so much. I jammed some cardboard underneath the right corner and top of the bottom middle right to torque it a bit more straight, and I am fairly satisfied with how it is now. It's barely noticeable unless the room is pitch black.



About the screen garbling, I was using custom timings I found here for 120hz before it went garbled.

I'm pretty uneducated about these settings, though, so I don't know how to modify these further. I would appreciate any help.

Sir, that's a night and day difference! I'm receiving mine today and I'll definitely try to do it the way you did (If I had BLB issues). It looks perfect thumb.gif

I think I found the answer for my screen garbling. It looked suspiciously like GPU memory problems, so I hopped on Google to connect some dots. Apparently GPUs don't use idle clockrates on their memory for extreme resolutions/refresh rates. I noticed that idle temps were 14C (36C to 50C) higher than with my old 1080p 120hz setup, and I think that the garbled mess may have been caused by the memory failing at that speed; I was giving my GPU's memory a permanent stress test. I returned them to default speeds, which lowered temps by 5C to 45C, so we'll see if things are smooth from here on out.

Here's my clock speeds at the desktop. GPU is clocked down, memory is not.

I updated to windows 8 recently and I just noticed I have 4 weird lines on the edge of the screen.

any ideas where it came from and how do I remove it?

Cookybiscuit, Hi i brought a xstar off dream-seller arrived last week iam really sensitive to PWM (backlight flicker) it only seems to have pwm on the first 2 clicks from the bottom brightness which is amazing !! but sad thing is the box was damaged on the journey over and theres a mark on the screen frown.gif so iam sending it back this week and ive brought a qnix from overclockmonitors should arrive next week. Apart from the damage no BLB and no dead pixels and no pwm.. it doesn't flicker like your one does now iam scared hope i don't receive one that flickers at high brightness or even low they must all be different backlights?

There's a new value that needs to be patched for SLI with some cards.

Get the latest version of the patcher: http://www.monitortests.com/forum/Thread-NVIDIA-Pixel-Clock-Patcher

The problem is that your house is haunted and you need to move. There is a weird clown face that is reflecting off of your screen. I don't think you can see it because you are under its power. Move away very fast.
