Yeah, Linus isn't the right guy to watch if you want the real cons about stuff...


I am just watching his product reviews to see the positive and the ability of some stuff, for example what you could do with a specific keyboard or something.

And basically because I enjoy watching his shows rolleyes.gif

Monitor was sent directly to him from Acer. I'm sure it was hand selected to have no BLB or problems. I mean look at the TFTcentral review and their example of BLB? Have we seen ONE monitor in the wild with that little BLB?

No doubt these review units are hand picked.

"20 000$ PC" - but only two weak 980's.... Nice configuration there buddy!


And as someone said, 3x 3440 is just stupidity! You can't even see the stuff on the sides lol.

One is perfectly enough.

Yea youtube samples are totally hand picked. It should be illegal. No reviews by big reviewers EVER complain about blb. When every one of us here have it to some degree.

Reviews should come the store front not acer where they obviously rig it.

lol i know right. I'm driving my x34 with a 4770k and 2x Evga Hybrid 980Ti's in SLI. It is a bit more than what I needed but for fps's however, I wanted to ensure that I remained capped at 100fps which so far from playin BF4 it does so with no problems.

Any remote chance this could be a driver issue? Although I'm using the latest drivers with a brand new video card on a fresh install of Win 10 mad.gifmad.gifmad.gifmad.gif

That look's like the limits of the G-Sync chip/video timings/bandwidth limit issue. It could be your G-Sync module is capping out, or your DP cable isn't liking that much bandwidth. Hence why when you drop the bandwidth down at 95 Hz the problem disappears. I personally would RMA a monitor that doesn't do 100 Hz stable. But, I would swap out the DP cable first.

I was thinking that too.

Already tried two different cables including the the one that came with it. Problem persists.

And it does sounds like a g-sync issue....just assuming it's in the monitor's g-sync module.

Also, take a look at the new video I made of the problem and posted here....problem goes away when I open a window...

Guys

am I correct when I say that the 2 worst item of the second rounds of deliveries are:

Funfordcobra and Stangs55

the other owners seem pretty happy with their sample




except a little BLB...but that seems unavoidable

I'm still crossing my finger mine will be one of the "others"...
