It is 4-7 days

Ok guys so I set this thing up this morning. Took the day off work to play around with it. I have to find a nice 3440 x 1440 motocross wallpaper haha! This one doesn't fit the way I'd like it to. It actually fits perfect inside my desk , BUT....it is too big for it to stay there and definitely needs to be mounted onto my SimRig. No bad pixels any where that I can see. Also ( and maybe all new monitors do this? ) but my old 27" was hooked up with DVI , this one I hooked up to the Display port. I turned it on and it scanned for the hookup and it just started working. The res is so high that I had to bump up the zoom for online viewing. The only con I can think of right now has nothing to do with the monitor itself , but they only supply a 4' long DP cord! Made it a little painful to hook up but I got it to work.

I'm very interested in the amount of IPS Glow/BLB this has. It is my one concern about getting this monitor. Would you be able to tell us your impressions of it in a dark room displaying a black image?

Is that the freesync version or the X34? I just noticed it has "acer" instead of "predator" on the bottom bezel. Also, is your wallpaper 2560x1440? If so, that's a good representation of how much more screen space it has over 16:9.

It's the freesync version, CK.

clubber_lang,

How does this run with your Sim racing games and your current rig, what sort of FPS are you getting and at what settings.

Thanks.

The monitor is amazing , actually beyond belief! I am struggling a little on setting up my sims right now though. rFactor 2 gave me an option of what resolution I wanted to run at , and I picked 3440 X 1440 and it just worked. But it is laggy for me right now , because I know I have some things set up incorrectly. I just posted a " help me " thread over in the AMD video card forum and am hoping someone can help me there.

@Xeby.....It does have a very slight back bleed , but it's very un-noticable honestly. I can't really get a good picture of it until this evening because of the reflections coming in through the window. But as soon as it gets dark tonight I'll take a couple pictures and post them up here for you.

I'm not quite sure yet , as I have things setup wrong. As soon as I can get the setting correct , it'll give me a good idea on what I need to do to get the FPS back up. Weird , some tracks seem to go real good , and others lag a bit. I think it has to do with the monitor trying to run Freesync and the cards not being able to do that.

I seem to of gotten rFactor 2 running pretty well. Came to the conclusion that sim just doesn't like crossfire at all. The single 7970 is pretty much running everything at max settings at 75hz refresh rate. I don't understand this yet , but for some reason if I have CFX enabled , it won't let me go higher than a 30hz refresh rate. It's not the monitor though , it has something to do with the cards.

Once I got things figured in a little more on RF2 , it's pretty damn amazing! Just have to configure my other sims and this monitor will be golden! So far the enjoyment factor of this new monitor has been worth every penny!

Ok I figured out GSCE and got her working and did some fooling around in rFactor2 as well.....both look amazing! rFactor with everything turned up is a little laggy , but way playable. GSCE with everything turned up to max , she's running smooth as silk at 75mz refresh and it's incredible! Fond out how to change the game in the config and it works great.

Game Stock car at 3440 X 1440.
