Does anyone know the proper length for the screws to fit the VESA mounting holes on the back? Some mounts seem to include screws that are too long.

EDIT: I realize it might be hard to say exactly because it depends on how think the plate you are mounting it to is. Still, a rough estimate would be nice.

I used 3/8 inch screws and they seemed to work for me(my mount is about 1/16 inch thick though). Also you could always use a washer or two wink.gif

This tends to work most of the time for me but i have not found any app or method that works quite perfectly. This app works the most compared to other software i have tried.

I'm a bit confused on what to set my settings in games.

I've set my refresh rate to 100hz on Nvidia control panel. In Bioshock Infinite, I put my resolution at 2560x1440p but do I keep vertical sync on or off? Using Fraps, with V-sync on, I'm at a constant 50 (not sure why it's not 60) FPS. Without it, I'm around 75-80FPS.

I've used the testufo website to confirm that 120hz is working but is there a way to test that it is working in game as well?

Also, when I set my refresh rate to 120hz and I do the testufo test, it shows as only 60hz. I was able to get it at 120hz with valid results few days ago. Not sure why it's giving a problem now

Unfortunately, that didnt help. Any other ideas?
I really dont want to run 96hz just for power saving feature to kick in, when I am stable@120hz. But having my gtx580 on water idle at 40C is anoying...

It sounds like your fps drops to half of your refresh rate becasue you have vsync on and your computer isn't fast enough to render it at 100 fps (and the game doesn't use triple buffering). Vsync has nothing to do with 60 fps, it's just that most monitors run at 60 Hz so that's why people and articles mention 60 or 30 fps in relation to vsync.

Since you have an Nvidia card you can also try the adaptive vsync setting which basically automatically disables vsync when your fps drops below your refresh rate and activates it when it goes above it. It works really great in some games and less well in others.

just make a different profile in afterburner with low clocks and run that while idling/not gaming

You're totally right. I was able to turn off AA and it was giving me more FPS (up to 100). So does this mean for optimal results I should play with 100hz and with AA off? What about bumping down the res to 1080?
