Yeah, We really need a thread for non miserable people to talk about the monitor and optimizing games for it.....or cool backgrounds...IDK anything but some of this scanline, recall vs no recall, BLB Trash This thread is really kinda sour. The other x34 thread seems even worse.

No issues with my monitor.

Similar blb/ips glow as my previous curved LG 34" (which uses the exact same panel as the x34). If you played on big ips panels before, you shouldn't even notice it.

Over clocked to 100hz on first try.

No coil whine but my hearing I have to admit is not stellar.

No grey scan lines but I'm gaming on 2 X Titan Xs over clocked under custom water so frame rate stays pretty high.

No idea if I have the wake from sleep mode. I haven't used sleep mode or a screen saver since the crt days. You guys do realize there is no possibility of image burn-in on any modern screen right? Just leave the damn monitor on the entire time your PC is on and when you go to bed at night turn off your computer. It's not that hard.

Maybe I'm just lucky and got a good one from a decent batch (got it from new egg during very first pre order)

Did you run the pendulum demo, because I only noticed the issue after running that. I'm pretty much the same as you though. Right now I'm pretty happy.

The scan lines are a little worrisome because they might develop. I'm also a little worried that NCIX (where I purchased this monitor) has basically obliterated it from their website. It's clearly not out of stock at NCIX. They're no longer selling it, period. Maybe Metros got to them?

They should have left the owners club intact for this.

Well I've been raving like an idiot about Watch Dogs. The most positive thing I can say about this monitor is that it's taken a game that runs like garbage, and utterly transformed it.

Here's what caught me by surprise though:

I thought G-Sync was really meant to smooth out 45-60 FPS gameplay. And while it does do that, where this monitor really shines is between 70 and 100 FPS. With a fixed frequency display, you pretty much have to match the frequency of your monitor with your minimum frame rate. If your lowest frame rate is around 65 then you have to clock your monitor at 65 Hz, to avoid stutter.

With G-sync there's none of that.

In some games I'm seeing wicked frame rate fluctuations, but because these fluctuations are all above 60 FPS I'm not seeing any stutter - simply awesome. If you offered me a night in bed with Madison Ivy, or this monitor, I would take the monitor. That is what I am talking about, my friends.

(BTW, Madison Ivy has scan lines too.)

1) asking for other people to block someone YOU don't agree with is NOT allowed on these forums.
2) If a major seller and hardware sellers say that the monitor is being RECALLED to Acer and some random Acer rep says they are not, I believe the hardware sellers, NOT Acer. Never listen to what random reps say on forums. Remember when Ilyama came out with a firmware update and sent it to digitalversus to enable their thru mode+overdrive at 144hz on one of their gaming monitors, then someone contacted Ilyama to get their monitor upgraded and the rep said "no such firmware update exists?"

Yeah--it's very common for someone not to know what someone else is doing at their own company, these days !

Since you decided to be a JERK to Metros for telling the TRUTH, I'll be blocking YOU in return.

Fallout 4 footage is being leaked on the consoles already and it's locked at 30FPS/1080p and the actual rate quite often drops below that.

I'm hoping the PC version isn't locked at 60. There actually are some games that are though most can be circumvented by doing a manual edtit of an *.ini or *.cfg file. Arma 3 comes to mind recently (it's capped at 60 unless you edit the cfg file)

Can't wait to play fallout 4 at (hopefully) 100 fps!!
