Im running Sli and no issue with overclocking. Running a single bridge. Do you mean for multiple monitors?

Quote:
Single and SLI Nvidia card setups can patch their Nvidia driver to overclock (Note: It is not necessary to do any patch. I would try without patching first). The patch is more important for SLI card owners

This? Not sure when it was originally posted, may have changed due to drive updates and all, though I'd be interested on this as well.

Sorry I haven't been active on this thread since my post over half a year ago.

I want to clarify more about the tape mod technique. The idea behind the tape is to actually apply some pressure when you put it all together so that the LCD panel become more flush with the metallic reflector. I think that the cheap reflector not being perfectly leveled causes a lot of lighting problems. So depending on where you think you have the problem you might try to be creative and figure out ways to make your screen flush. My monitor luckily had a problem in the bottom right so i was able to apply some tape in the bottom right as a means to push the LCD tightly against the reflector. Good luck everyone with your monitor!

Do you think the 120hz is really worth it over a 30" 2560-1600 one? I just bought the Dell U3014 and still have over a week to return.

Honestly its user pref, if you need the real estate then sure, I was debating between 1080 @ 120hz or 1440p/1600p initially and decided on higher screen estate. Though @ the cost of the 3014 ( though u got a d/c iirc ) It's a steal for the Korean panels IMO, granted the 120hz isn't like the Asus w/ Light boost 2.0 its still ncie and cleaner for games, and even if not it's still a cheap high quality display @ 1440p which you can't find anywhere else, and 1600p is only a 160px upgrade height wise, nothing changes width wise.

I upgraded from a 23" so the 27" is def noticeable, so the size would be diff as well between the 2 BUT if you like matte and haven't experienced 120hz or even 96hz and dont' really do FPS or game intensively then the Dell's fine, its just a GREAT price-performance deal. If you have more than a week to return why not order a panel to test that way if nothing else you can return the panel of whichever you don't prefer thumb.gif

Yea the problem is im deciding between factory pre-calibrated color / 30" with 120hz. Like is 120hz really that good? I haven't experienced it sadly. I mean if it's really a god sent then I'll def go with a Korean 1440 27" that can overclock to 120hz over this Dell U3014.

In the past, the manufacturer released the monitor in three different versions, glare, anti-glare, and tempered glass. Panel without coating was glossy, so it was called glossy panel. However, this panel had lots of problems and very weak from shock and scratches. So the manufacturer no longer produce monitors without any coating. And panel with anti-glare coating and tempered glass is actually glare. So the manufacturer now produces two versions, glossy and matte. You might feel a little confused, but literally, tempered glass version is one of glare panels as it is glare. As long as we know, there's no glossy + tempered glass panel. If there's one like that, it would be too glare to use.
FYI, AH-IPS panel, which is used for YAMAKASI, CROSSOVER, and ACHIEVA, is also anti-glare coated panel with tempered glass. And they call it glare panel. The difference is just the panel is thinner and has better quality than S-IPS panel, which is previous version.

Hope the above is helpful to understand. BTW, so you do not like the 'current glossy' version? Please let us know.

Thank you.

Best regards,
Green-Sum

Ok so it is a matte screen underneath. Weird. Oh well if I don't like it I will remove the AG. Going forward with it. Heres what I got from worlds best.

Glare panel is two versions. One without any coating, and another one with anti-glare coating and a tempered glass on it. The tempered glass makes the coated panel glossy, so the manufacturer releases tempered glass version as glossy since it is literally 'glossy'. Do you not like it? If so, please let us know. We are not sure if we can find a panel without any coating, but we will try.

Thank you.
