maybe you bought the tempered glass version?

I have a glossy qnix and there is definitely no glass anywhere on the panel

Is this supposed to be standard procedure? Thanks!

Pics for reference:






Yeah the company i went through asked me to email them the pics.....standard procedure i would have thought. smile.gif

Can someone please enlightened me as to why I get this issue?

So my issue is I upgraded from GTX570SLI to AMD R9-280x crossfire. I used CRU now to set my Screen refresh rate to 96Hz. sometimes when I play games and watch a video file I get screen flickering and that never used to happen on my GTX570 SLI setup.

I'm using windows 8.1 and I also reformatted my pc after changing Graphics cards. BTW this is only happening in full screen. I tried changing cables with a lindy Dual DVI gold lated cable with no go. With the stock cable I can play a little longer without it flickering I also tried chaning sli bridges and connecting 2 at the same time. I feel so angry with myself for not waiting for the R9-290/290x non reference cards so I don't have to put up with this multi gpu nonsense.

Anyway. Is there something I can maybe tried. Oh I also tried having LCD reduced still same issue.

The frame skipping test still shows 60fps for some reason after I have overclocked it. How can I change that?

Overclock you monitor to 96hz thumb.gif

But seriously, it's probably your browser, switch to mozilla if you aren't using that already, in chrome it says 48fps or something and a error message for chrome saying something about vsync. Half 96=48 so something funky with chrome for that test.
I'm back baby!!!

I OC it to 120hz..... Catalyst shows 120hz, so does windows. In TF2, I had Vsync on and after report 119ish FPS most of the the time. I was using chrome since it had some issue in waterfox. But, in that case, I think it is actual stable at 120hz.
