You will never get a perfect 2.2 gamma on this thing using the best tools in the world. You would still see a great improvement though using a tool worth purchasing.

I know I keep saying this. But, I cant recommend Colormunki Display enough. Its also so user friendly a 5 year old could do it. The next model up is better but more advanced. It actually uses the same colorimeter just better software. And just to show you how panels vary. Brightness on this one is 25 to reach 118cm. Target being 120cm. 26 put it at 121cm. I prefer a bit under then over. So, anyone with a June 2016 build. I highly recommend you try my ICC profile listed above and change brightness to 25. You should be pleased with the results.
Yea, the desktop appears nice and vibrant. Once Overwatch loads up its just white fest.
There is a gamma slider in there. I always thought gamma was another odd brightness setting so it seems that isnt the case.
So bringing that down makes the colors a little darker. Would it be wise to tweak that a bit then?
Oh I forgot to mention, I've still had a few cases of the monitor randomly flickering. I swapped wires and that didnt seem to be it.
I just got into my first match in overwatch, 10 seconds in it just went black. Then power save mode came up. I swapped inputs hdmi to dp, nothing. I alt-tab, nothing. ctrl+shift+esc for task manager and kill overwatch, nothing.
I tilt the monitor to remove the dp and try another, and the screen came back up. so chalking it up to its default cable.
I have one from work that clips in.Edited by TheGlow - 8/3/16 at 4:42pm
