Yeah but the PG279Q does seem to be slightly blurrier at 165 Hz vs 144 Hz, based on the images provided by TFTcentral (and they said as much too). Also it seems both monitors may have some slight inverse ghosting at 165 Hz.

What exactly does OD do in extreme mode?

How can I enable the option to change ULMB?

I've seen a lot of people using between 24-28 brightness. I was using 80 on my XL2411T before.... going this dark seems like it will hinder the colours in game? Using sRGB makes everything more vibrant.

Overdrive (OD) overvolts pixels to orient them into position faster, thus improving pixel response time. On Extreme it usually applies too much and thus causes inverse ghosting.

Do you mean turn ULMB on/off? Set the monitor to 120 Hz and then you can enable it. Unless you mean change OD settings with ULMB enabled, which is not possible on ULMB monitors (but it seems every ULMB monitor has an ideal overdrive setting in ULMB mode).

24-28 brightness won't really do anything to colors. I think LCD screens are recommended to run at 120 cd/m2 brightness, which is usually in the 20s on most monitors. It depends on your room lighting at the end of the day; those of us who use 24-28 brightness don't have much light in the room. I use no light at all other than my bias light.

How do I set it to 120hz? When I go into the Overclock setting the minimum is 150. I have set my refresh rate to 144 through the Nvidia Control Panel. I still don't get the option to turn it on or off. I can't even select the setting... it just jumps straight over it when I try and select it, as if it's greyed out.

Disable overclock mode and then set the refresh rate to 120 Hz in NVIDIA control panel? ULMB is only to be used in a strict situation though, otherwise it sucks (but testing for yourself is always good). If you can maintain a constant frame rate of 120 or more, use ULMB. If not, stick with G-SYNC. Also, ULMB @ 100 Hz is pointless and ULMB @ 85 Hz is torture and epilepsy waiting to happen.

Gotcha. Thannks for the tip. I still feel the need to set my digital vibrance to 65.... maybe I'm so used to TN panels and the poor colour reproduction.

I've decided that i'm going to keep my monitor. One stuck pixel but it's virtually not noticeable unless I look for it (probably 1cm above the bottom left bezel). I can only see it on grey backgrounds, so whatever. Non-issue in my opinion.

Everything else is flawless on the monitor, virtually zero BLB and it looks amazing. I don't think i could do any better than this panel, so i'm not gonna bother trying :-)

9.5/10, only loses a .5 because of the stuck pixel.

When I'm launching CS:GO my screen flickers for a few seconds and then everything is normal.
It only occurs at CS:GO and since I enabled G-Sync. Someone else having issues with a flickering screen?

Mine does the same thing. Never thought anything of it because the game itself runs fine.
post #5939 of 7842
You can overclock your monitor to 165Hz (as I heard 150 also enough) and lock your refresh rate to 144 in software at the same time as this is a GSync monitor. With this setup there is no shift problem and there is no chance to ghost.
post #5940 of 7842
Could you do the same thing if you locked the frames to say 140?
