Quick question. I plan on overclocking it but is there really any benefit of pushing it to 120Hz if you don't ever plan on running 120FPS? I have a 7950 and at that resolution, I doubt I'll ever see any modern game push close to that many frames.
Yep there is a benefit, but mostly for FPS games. I've gotten back to playing BF3 ever since I got my Qnix a few days ago. The main benefits would be smoother movements and less input lag. Even if I'm getting somewhere between 60~90FPS on my 7950 with lowered settings, the 120Hz really helps.
For the most part, it isn't as noticeable in MMO/MOBA games, though you'll notice some added smoothness to moving your camera and some animations/movements.
In movies/shows/anime, you may notice less motion blur for fast actions or less smoothness in animations that require a lower refresh rate for you to not see repeating animations (think small movements like a stomach going in and out while breathing).

Since there seem to be slight differences between the older images and newer ones I can't really judge it solely based on those.
It's actually not a sticker. You'd have to paint over it if you want to get rid of it.
