When its set to 100hz and browsing sites normally, for gaming and the desktop its fine. But seems the issue is where there is a lot of white and black test. Its very faint to be honest and only heard it as my PC was running absolutely silent, but now I know its there its annoying sadsmiley.gif

Anyone else having a small amount of coil whine noise when the rest of the room is silent? Using 100Hz on sites like Amaon or even here.

In two minds of sending it back, but if others have even a slight amount of whine then probably the norm rather then exception.

Send it back, or RMA it. I got the same problem with my X34, and thought I could live with it. tried it out for 2 weeks, and it drove me absolutely insane. Not an issue you want with such an expensive monitor.

Do you have scan line pictures

It is up to you however there are many different things that could go wrong

You could get worse backlight bleed/IPS glow

Dead pixels (not many issues with that on LG panels)

Worse scan lines

Louder coil whine (you seem to be the first with coil whine)

Methinks that taxes don't go to amazon. Unless you live in Amazonland.

We're talking about overclocking here, nothing guaranteed above 60Hz.
Such as you got bsod pushing your 6700K beyond 5GHz and need to fall back to 4.5GHz for rock stability, if you have issues at 100Hz just fall back to whatever frequency where you don't have those issues.
If you want guarantee and no issue at 100Hz and above, get a 144Hz monitor, not an "upto 100Hz OC".

We are talking about a super expensive monitor that is marketed as being able to run 100 hz. If it cannot do so without whining unbearably and you have to turn it down to 60 hz to get rid of it, you might as well get a monitor that is half the price.

If you are happy with having a monitor that can not do what have been promized without some obscure error occuring, then that is OK, but I will not pay that much money for a product that is not up to standard.

6700K´s are not marketed as "buy this, and be able to clock to 5 ghz without problems. These monitors are.

For the record, the X34 I had even had coilwhine at 60 hz.

Has anyone else tried in a dead silent room and possibly on a site like Amazon at 100hz? Would be curious to see / hear any results. Though most likely just my panel. As I say its a very unique combination with which it happens, but meh at the same time now I know its there its annoying.

Of course you are right which is why I was putting the question to other people, if they at all experienced the whine with the combination of very specific factors. 100hz, very white background and black text. I suspect there may be some people who do have it but not yet heard it as for myself at least through 8 hours a day of use for nearly a week (work on it aswell) its only been discovered now.

While it is mostly simple setting the monitor to 100hz via the OSD, Nvidia control panel can be a pain. I use the HDMI on the card to my AV receiver, so have a phantom screen. As a result switching between refresh rates causes the AV reciever to become the primary screen which and results in needing a quick restart. Simple enough but rather do away with needing to do this every time I stop gaming, switch back to browsing etc.

EDIT: I also understand of course the coil whine is par for the course with this and not at all disappointed. But having seen I seem to be the first (?) with this issue. Does not make me wonder if I can at all get one without the issue is all.

Taken from ASUS website:
Quote:
1) Refresh Rate
DisplayPort: 3440x1440(up to 100Hz*)
HDMI: 3440x1440(50Hz)

Note: For smoother gameplay, G-Sync requires a GeForce
GTX 980Ti and above to overclock the refresh rate
up to 100Hz

Just be smarter than marketing department.
I don't know how is it in your country, but here we're used to the "up to" marketing crap.

That's exactly what I was saying.
PG348Q is expensive, and not guaranteed to fulfill its marketing promises. Be aware if you buy it.

If you really need/want a similar monitor with guaranteed 144Hz smooth running, take your patience and wait for it to come out.
IMHO X34 and PG348Q are made for early adopters, people wanting to have it now and play the lottery.

I live in a lovely country where the end user is protected against "marketing crap". Which is why I without problems can say that if this monitor does not go to 100 hz without coilwhine or other problems, it goes straight back to where it came from without me loosing a cent.

As stated before, I do not care if you think it is "ok" for it to behave this way. If it does not live up to my demands, which is based on what it is marketed as, then I am not keeping it.
