I went into amd ccc and ticked the box that says reduce dvi frequency and that solved it, thought it might help some people. I don't think reduce dvi frequency will have any adverse affects??

my gaming computer is down until wednesday or so but I will also test with those new drivers unless something else comes out by then. To me this is odd, since doesn't the frequency need to be atleast a certain level to display a certain refresh?

So I figured out my issue might be related to the AMD/ATI patcher that I need to use to be able to overclock

Yeah, i'm not sure, all i know is without that box ticked i was like slamming the browser to the right side like so it would take up half the screen, and everything would judder, with the box ticked it doesn't do it anymore, was the first thing i tried as well, re ran the overclock test in the o.p and verified 96fps. No idea why the new driver caused it or what the reduce dvi frequency does other than assuming it lowers the timings. It says it's for high resolutions so yeah, would be good if you check it out as well.. Especially if you have the same issue after updating your drivers.

No problems with 13.11 beta9.2. Only played BF3 and League of Legends though. Browsing and videos are pretty good.

Hey guys,

I wondered if there's a way to ensure that I'll be getting a display with zero dead/stuck pixels? I'd be happy to pay a little bit more, but I really want to be absolutely sure that there is no dead/stuck pixels there. Are there any sellers that provide this guarantee?

Thanks.

Yea, anyone on Ebay that offers *perfect pixel* models, youll need to pay anywhere from 20-40$ extra for that gaurantee. If you are really interested take a look at the first page of the thread and check out who bought their monitors from which seller and see the issues they got (ie, if they bought a perfect pixel, did it come with no issues, backlight bleed, etc). Honestly I just took my chances and judging by the list so did many others and my monitor is in mint condition, minor backlight bleed which was fixable, but no dead or stuck pixels. I bought from Green-sum on ebay, I know dream-seller also offers perfect pixel models as well.

One thing to remember is that these panels are going to be grade "A" or "A-" panels. That means that regardless of dead/stuck pixels there could be (and will, thats why their not A+ panels) be other defects. These defects could be so mild that the average joe would not notice them to severe. An example of a defect would be sever banding, dark blotches, uneven color, ect. If you are extremely picky and notice any little detail, then the korean monitors are not for you. If you don't notice anything, then my advise is don't go looking for it. I don't understand why people go through the trouble of looking for dead/stick pixels. If you don't notice it during normal use, then you most likely will never notice it. On the other hand, if you go out of the way to find a defect, you will notice it constantly. Remember, ignorance is bliss thumb.gif.

Yeah, but on pixelperfect models I still see a policy about dead/stuck pixels on their page, so I guess that means there's a possibility that they won't be **perfect**, correct?
