I have the same problem but overlocking the monitor to 165Hz just fix this issue.

Nope, I don't have that at all, but I'm using GTX 1070 on Windows 7 and those issues look like GTX 1080 on Windows 8/8.1/10 and driver related.

Hey Everyone! After going through 4 exchanges, I'm finally happy to get a screen with minimal backlight bleed and zero dead/stuck pixels.

I do notice, however, that I have slight blurring along the right edge of my screen...Looks like the result of the bezel placement. It doesn't really interfere with gameplay or anything, but I'm curious if this is a common feature of the screens or if I'm being neurotic..... Pics below.

Uniformity seems bad if it's not because of your camera.

How does one over clock this monitor?

Just activate the overclocking function in the monitor menu.

Picked up a referbushed unit the other day from Canada Computers, was over $300 cheaper than a brand new one. No dead pixels and BLB doesn't seem to bad, especially considering I have the lights on most of the time.

White uniformity could be better, it's darker in the lower right corner on whites/greys, from reading the thread it seems like uniformity in general is an issue on these monitors, with many being in the same spot as mine. Is there any chance of the uniformity improving or getting worse with time or does this look like particularly bad uniformity compared to others? There are other refurbs in stock at other stores, I'm leaning towards keeping this one though since I feel like I'm lucky to have saved $300 with tolerable BLB (IMO) and no dead pixels.

When I am using the monitor with 144Hz I sometimes get a vertical line missalign at the center of the screen. But when I use the overclock menu and set the monitor to 165Hz I never experience this screen shift bug. I use my monitor since march in this mode. I use 165Hz in desktop and fullscreen also. If I turn off the overclock the screen shift bug reappear.

Overclock menu is here:

How is this monitor for fps games like overwatch and battlefield? Right now I'm using an Asus VG248qe will I notice a huge difference in performance wise?
