ACER Predator X34 Owners Club - Page 35

post #341 of 3061
Hey guys I said I was not going to buy this, but I ended up buying it anyway.







Great monitor and OC's to 95Hz. Has IPS glow/bleed but not noticeable to me with lower brightness.

I have a question.

How do I use the speakers in this monitor at the same time as my speakers from my sound card? I am only able to use either, not both.

Oh god... colour me stupid. I hadn't realized the scan lines go away when you disable the overclock.

Okay, for me this has become even less of an issue then.

1) Most of my games (roughly 85 percent of them) run at 100 frames pretty easily on my GTX 980 SLI setup. Since the scan lines don't appear when my frames are high (above 60 fps) then I can overclock my monitor 85% of the time without issue.

2) If I have a problematic game that dips below 60 FPS at frequent intervals, then all I have to do is disable the overclock, and run G-sync, and I won't get scanlines.

Okay, so one important question then: my monitor says it goes up to 75hz without the overclock done by Acer. How do I overclock the monitor to 75Hz on my own in the Nvidia control panel?

If I can get to 75Hz on my own, without scanlines, then this becomes a complete non-issue.

Anybody?

Not true for me or most people with this issue............ It's enabling G-sync that causes the scanlines, doesn't matter what Hz you are running at

We finally have a review site that didn't get a cherry picked monitor!

Someone at Acer is going to have to acknowledge the terrible G-Sync scan line issue,

We have a unit here that's fresh out of the box, and has NEVER been overclocked. With G-sync enabled, at 60Hz, we're seeing faint scan lines that go away once G-sync is disabled. These lines are more prominent on the left side of the screen

The result of these scan lines is an image that's far from perfect. At $2000 CAD, this monitor should not have image quality problems of this nature.

Someone at Acer MUST address this issue. We look forward to hearing from you, and we thank you for your time.

Here's what I don't understand.

If I disable the overclock, and run the pendulum demo, I still get scanlines with G-sync enabled. But here's the weird part. If I go into an actual game, with the overclock disabled, and Gsync running, then the scanlines don't appear.

This is obvious in Fallout 4 when I'm in a city and my frames are around 45 FPS. Overclock on: I'm seeing scanlines. They're definitely there. Overclock off: the scanlines are gone completely.

Same deal with Watch Dogs. I'm able to remove the scanlines completely by disabling the overclock. If I immediately run the pendulum demo, the scanlines are clearly there. How can this be???

Guys, please try it.

1) Disable your overclock.
2) Enabled Gsync and run a game with your FPS limited to 35 FPS. Tell me if you see scanlines.

Forget about the pendulum demo for the time being.

I watch there reviews but they came up with some fishy benchmarks during there Fury X review...then I kinda stoped trusting them. They seem a little in the tank for AMD. I am not surprised they are the ones that had an issue with this monitor.

That person doesn't work for HW Canucks. That's just their user-name.

That's what I was thinking, just some random schmuck who snagged their user name.

Oh well then take it for what it is then...

So, to ask the question again: how do I get to 75Hz on my own without using the built in Acer over-clock?
