Well based on the prices of 60hz Shimians and the like I would say it is worth it...but that still obviously blows.

Matte has really overtaken glossy in the poll now! thumb.gif

Funny enough I saw backlight bleeding in the day time yesterday and earlier this morning where it's still sunny and I only see it mainly when I look at the monitor while standing up. In the same spot where it usually is I haven't seen it recently. I do wonder if it'll come back, but right now it hasn't. Some pic comparisons:

As far as I'm aware, I can go 120hz just fine, but I didn't notice a difference so I just dropped to 96 to lower wear on the monitor. The only noticeable backlight bleed is on the top right corner where it's a bit flimsy and the bottom middle has light come about an inch up the monitor. Otherwise it's good.

Just to be sure, to overclock you add a custom resolution in NVidia manager set to 120hz and that's all there is to it? I also applied the patch fix a few pages back too.

EDIT: Holy *****, I've just received a text from FedEx saying that the parcel has passed the customs process and the total taxes I have to pay are $150. So the total price for the monitor is $309 + $150. It better be worth the price!biggrin.gif


Most of that taxes are from FedEx and nothing else. That's why I believe that we should avoid using FedEx, DHL. EMS seems to be cheaper because they have agreements with national post offices

No if you set the custom res in the NV panel instead of using the Custom Resolution Utility you also need the Catleap 2B INF so games know to use higher refresh. CRU handles that part too though...

Oh. I tried testing on League of Legends and it was showing 96 and 120 fps for each custom resolution that I set in NV with V-sync on.

Still need this Custom Resolution Utiility though?
post #998 of 25893
So... I'm curious. The only game I've played since I got the panel has been Guild Wars 2. The in-game FPS counter shows my FPS as high as 98 at times. This is running the panel at 96hz. I did the overclocking entirely through nvidia control panel with no patching or custom drivers or anything...

Is GW2 just an exception to the rule that games require the catleap INF or overclocking via CRU instead of nvidia control panel?

As a gamer, should I be worried about a 1440p @ 120hz monitor? If I can't reach those resolutions with 120hz at good FPS... i imagine I would want to drop the resolution, right?
post #1000 of 25893
Hmmmmm.... anyone heard of DGM? Cosmetically it looks exactly like the QNIX, quick glance at the specs and it seem to be 1440P and an IPS not PLS.... confused.gif

Overclockers UK also stock the item with 3 years warranty but at £380.
