Shorter = better. 3ft cables are most likely to get you higher overclocks, and they're cheaper.

I concluded it based on my own (admittedly limited) experience and other posts from this thread. I see how you could take offense from what I first said though.

Now that I think of it I have actually used two of the cables that come with these monitors and one other cable, no 3 ft ones though.

I understand the logic between a 3ft cable, but I feel like using one would be highly impracticable for most people with such a short length.

I didn't take offence from what you said, I was just disagreeing with your conclusion since members who have extensively tested many cables found quite a difference between one cable and another. It's mostly a lottery with wires as you have experienced, though.

For those whom it would work for, there's no reason not to go for a 3ft cable to generally enable higher OCs.

got my monitor its glossy with tempered glass

at 120hz it seems to be darker than my crossover27q hard to see in bf4 in dark areas
post #9887 of 25887
Great news that it's glossy under there. When you say it's darker at 120hz. Does that mean when you Oc it's changing the color of the monitor? Or is it always a little dark?

How do you like the screen with the glass on it? Is the glare really bad? And which seller was yours from?

Sorry this was meant for Harry604

The monitors get darker and less uniform as your increase your overclock.
