I too love the 1440p, 165hz, G-Sync combo but unfortunately ASUS haven't done a very good job with this monitor,

Shame I have to go back to a BENQ 2420T 1080p @ 120hz unless I can find a suitable replacement for now.

For £750, it's just not good enough.

So you too? Crazy, I have a feeling that anyone from this forum is going to return it :-/ Is there somebody here who does not experience a distracting bleed/glow and wants to keep the monitor???

You can even compare different settings with two images and a slider, really awesome.

example is foliage visibility range, difference between ultra and high:

Not really a difference you'll actually notice when playing (thicker trees in the distance) but quite a huge impact on fps:

Yes, I know this page. What is prett demandin in Witcher is as you said foliage quality and shadows on ultra. I play with shadows on High because there is not big difference but foliage I have on Ultra because I hate objects pop up.

Same here mate, but I am giving Asus one more shot and asked for replacement. If that will also have such bleeding- I am just gonna return it and refund and wait for Acer XB as last shot.

Can't you ask for replacement first and try one more time with Asus? I am willing for one more go.

Hmm, I have the same CPU clocked to 4.5GHz though. Don't know why you had not 99%. I would like to have hairworks on but only fur because on geralt's hair it's useless and very demanding.

I will be following you with this replacement. Very courious if it will be better. If not as you said the last chance is new Acer but I'm very sceptic for this.

It has yellow tint and it's brighter than the center. Pretty distracting as well. Of course this is not a problem of the monitor but TN technology. So if you can live with that, then buy it. I couldn't... In my opinion 27" is too much for TN.

So I've asked the previous owner for more pictures and seems like backlight bleed is minimal and no streaking (he put up video for about 2 mins of fps gameplay) but there is this blurry red/pink patch that's coming from the right top of screen about 2/4 down filling maybe 2/10 of the whole screen. So I guess this is a pass... Had my hopes up for Asus IPS and seems like owners are getting defective units as well. Maybe I should just go LG34UC97 and no more FPS games.

VERY smart for taking that video! Might have saved yourself a dud.

Any chance we can see the video of that pink patch?

And all this time I thought a single GTX980 Strix would be enough for 1440p gaming.

Here is my setup.


Intel i5 6600K
Asus Hero Maximus VIII
Asus GTX 980 Strix
G.Skill DDR4 16GB
Samsung 850 EVO 256 GB
Seasonic 620W PSU
Windows 10 Home edition
Asus DVD optical drive


I am planning to OC Cpu to 4.8 GHz using the asus 5 way optimization software for the motherboard. Would this be enough or should I go 980 strix again for SLI? Would like to game comfortably at 1440P.

I would upload pictures but I have no access to computer right now so I cant (on my tablet) but here is a link where you can see the photos of the pink patch.

For me as a gamer if it's not speed, then it's all immersion. No half way color-speed. Turns out to be worst and end up returning. biggrin.gif

Well, this patch in bottom part of the screen was a common issue users complaint about. However, I did not have such issue on my June 2015 model. In any case I think you saved money... And I'm pretty sure it would have pixel inversion as well. In my opinion all 278s have it... By those streaking you mean those pink and green vertical lines called pixel inversion? Because this is very hard to see, it is usually visible on gray solid backgrounds when moving horizontally. And also with all those uniformity issues I'm sure you would not be satisfied. These new IPS panels are pretty fast and only a bit slower than TN and I think this will not help you to improve your skills.

This LG looks pretty good but it's more than QHD so do you have enough power to drive it ? Also it has no G-sync so this could be problem with some games.

It depends what you expect from it. But AAA games you won't be able to enjoy on full settings in 1440p. Usually if you can keep at least 60FPS you need to disable MSAA or more demanding AA methods. You need to stick with FXAA or no AA because it is very demanding in 1440p. But benefit of 1440p is that you are usually fine with FXAA or no AA. Also you may need to lower some graphics demanding features. Even 980Ti is not able to do it.

You have to realize that moving from 1080p to 1440p you get 30 - 40% performance hit. So for example a game running 100FPS on 1080p will run 50 - 70FPS on 1440p - depends on complexity. Therefore it is very important to have g-sync in this case. As for example Witcher or Unity run from 55 - 80FPS on 980Ti. So on 980 it would run 40 - 60 FPS. Without G-sync everything bellow 60FPS is unusable. So it helps with fluidity. What it will not help is input lag which can be pretty annoying on 50Hz.

So I recommend to go with SLI.

Welcome, with SLI you will have enough power to drive this 1440p beast wink.gif I've heard that SLI may introduce some microstuttering, don't know if it is true or not, never had such configuration. Did you notice any microstuttering with your previous SLI ?

oh lol on camera being the cause of the pink patch . I have been so out of the mix in computer gaming. Last time I played computer games was almost 15 years ago when Quake 3, and Unreal Tournament FPS games were popular. Playing on a CRT, so I had no idea what stuttering on games is until I looked it up on YouTube videos just minutes ago. I think during those times GeForce 3 was like godsend and I would check madonion.com for performance and how to OC etc. This is going to be my first build in 15 years and taking all the parts I've ordered to frys on thursday to have it all assembled for $50.00 ( I built my computer 15 years ago but forgot all about it now). Anyway, thanks for the replies and you sure did save me some good money! like I said in previous post, I was planning to get the 34uc97 but now after seeing screen tearing/stuttering videos on youtube, not sure if I want to go without gsync. (mind changes so quickly!) Well, I am definitely picking up another gtx980 in few days to SLI, and would have to make a decision on monitor by next week.
