Turns out both of my displayport cables were faulty. The third cable has no flickering issues at 100hz.

The only issue I have now is some slight whine/noise, which I am willing to deal with.

Well I just ordered it from B&H Photo! Still no availability from amazon.com nor newegg.com. I have done business before with B&H Photo and they have been great and they have a 30 days return policy. The base price was initially higher than amazon's and newegg's (I payed $1.499) but it included an expedited same day shipping and no taxes, so as I was going to do the same with amazon I would have ended paying a similar price.
No waiting game for the Asus. I'm very pleased with my Acer XB1 so I'm going to give Acer the chance with the X34. Hopefully this is a new production with some flaws fixed.

Newegg.com now have it in stock: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16824009869&cm_re=acer_x34_predator-_-24-009-869-_-Product

With my shipping options buying at B&HPhoto costed me $100 more but even though that's a difference I don't regret it because I like doing business more with B&HPhoto and love their customer service and their return policy is actually better than Newegg. With B&HPhoto you can return it within 30 days, no-questions-asked but with Newegg if you open the monitor they will charge you a 15% restock fee and if you want a replacement the monitor needs to have 8 dead pixels or more!

You will have to go the image and manually select 3440x1440 from the drop down menu. It does not show the 3440 from the choices at the top of the page.

So, this is Acer's comment on the scanlines issue (posted by Acer-Cory):

Quote:
All,
 
In regards to the scanline issue, I have been provided with an update. Scanlines are an effect caused by rapidly changing refresh rate. Variations in the refresh rate create an increased holding time that results in the accumulation of an electrical charge. When this charge is released, it causes small variations in the frame that result in faint horizontal lines.
 
We certainly appreciate everyone’s patience and the feedback that has been provided by many of you. Unfortunately, this is a side effect for cutting edge technology and while there is not a fix to be applied, we will continue to make efforts to minimize and eliminate these types of limitations in future releases.
 
Thanks,
Cory

Just want to know, as anyone had any problems with scan lines being more obvious or overclock getting lower over time?
