Keep in mind, you may have to "view" "file name extensions" in your settings and delete the .txt when you create user.cfg file. Creating this file and capping my fps also fixed stuttering I was having.

Honestly I don't see the difference. If I look REALLY closely at very specific things on my wife's 144hz monitor and switch it from 100-144 and back to 100 there is if staring at one small area and looking around really fast very shuttle differences. But under normal game play nope. I can't see the difference

That is quite an improvement.

At what brightness setting did you take the pictures?

You should probably stick with the new one. Chances are you'd be worse off if you got a third one...

I want to say that the brightness setting in the picture was 70... I tested the bleed with 3 different settings - 40/70/100. The brightness didn't really make a huge difference in the visibility of the blb to me personally, especially at late night with all other lights out. It was fairly obvious at every setting while standing ~10ft away and kneeling down looking directly at the screen at eye level.

For comparison, I also have my ~2-3 year old 16:9 1440p monitor mounted directly on top of the ultrawide and that one has no blb whatsoever. I'm not sure if it's just a given that these new ultrawides will have it to some degree no matter what, but I'll just have to get used to it. Other than that, the monitor seems to be perfect thus far. No dead pixels/dust/stuttering/coil whine that I've experienced thus far, and it looks gorgeous in games.

yea Most ips panels seem to have BLB no matter what for the most part. This monitor i swear almost got returned because i was so on the fence about the x34 or the acer 32 inch 4k or the 144hz 2560x1080 acer or benq i was just so iffy. I love it though! It's *pardon my language* f*%&$#@ beautiful. My wife demands a ultra wide though now so she may be the one that gets the 144hz 2560x1080 monitor that way i have the best of both worlds lol! She is a hardcore gamer thanks to me. She loves bf4, WoW and Division with WoW quickly fading out because it sucks so bad these days. She absolutely loves bf4 now that she has the hang of first person shooters.

You think its going to shorten the life of this thing to leave it "overclocked" at 100hz? I don't want to burn the sucker out. The asus website sais some games are recommended to be played at 60hz and others at 100. I hope they intended for it to stay at 100, because that's where mine is staying. The thought of this thing dying is like thinking about losing a dog or something. I love it, and it loves me.

It's not like it's overheating.

I'ts built to do it.

to achieve this through the current display port version it has to be overclocked.

In a couple months time when the new version of display port releases it'll support 100hz natively.

So this monitor is essentially a bandaid solution until then to achieve max 100hz.

But don't worry... our video cards would currently struggle to do 144hz at 3.5K so we are in the sweet spot of gaming with this combination.

Like intel CPU's and their 'boost' feature 3.5ghz --> 3.9ghz

or Nvidia's boost...

I've left mine on 100hz from day one.

They only say that because high visual RPGs that have monster requirements like say the witcher... you can play that at 60hz if you're having framerate issues at 100hz.

This is not correct. These monitors are not native 100hz due to the panel circuitry, not due to display port. DP1.2 has enough bandwidth for 100hz. The panel was built for 60hz, but tweaked to achieve 100hz. Not all panels will achieve 100hz 24/7. The longer the panel is left at 100hz the more stress it puts on the components. Some people will have zero problems with 100hz 24/7 and others will have a problem. Those that a problem did occur over time they just backed the OC down to 90-95hz. My GPUs are enough for 3440x1440 @ 144hz in many games, or close to it. So im just waiting for DP1.3 and new panels to come along.

What he is saying is the new monitors like the x34p are shipping native at 100hz and yes dp1.2 is limited in bandwidth. That's why with the new display port monitor manufacturers are already preparing 144hz 3440x1440 but not until the new display port. This has been mentioned a few times around the web. Someone posted a link somewhere on oc3d that showed a manufacturer talking about their new ultra wide 3440x1440p 144+ hz but that it wouldn't happen until the new dp. Something to do with bandwidth limitation just like how 4K can not happen at +60hz because there is not enough bandwidth to game at those res at those refresh rates.

Well OC fulltime or not this monitor is backed with a 3 year warranty. They have confidence in their product.
