I use TFT Central's ICC profile for Dell U3415W, 0% brightness, 70% contrast and gamma0. The rest in on default. Looks amazing.

thanks, I have to install profile?

it's possible to overclock the 34UC88 (75Hz with my GTX980 SLi) ?

There is guide to install ICC profile on the site I liked. I think it is necessary to install it because default calibration is just not good.

From my experience - not. At least no through Display Port, maybe try HDMI (it supports up to 3860x2160 60 Hz)

Something is wrong then, either with monitor, DP cable, your GPU or your system, because supplied DP cable supports 1.2a standard.

What's this freesync mod I'm hearing about with this monitor? Read that someone modded the range to 35-75.

The same mod as for every other FreeSync monitor. The easiest one is with CRU software. Not guaranteed that it will work, not working on my UC98.

You edit the vertical refresh rate range in CRU, it only takes a few clicks and a reboot. I have 40-75Hz working on my LG 34UC88 using a R9 290. Tried 35-75Hz and would get constant screen tearing. I've also tried overclocking to 80Hz, but frameskipping occurs so these panels are probably maxed at 75Hz.

Compared to my Qnix overclocked to 120Hz, this monitor doesn't really compare when it comes to gaming, especially FPS games. However, I would say this monitor does a good job for doing everything, but doesn't specialize in any field except for viewing media in 21:9 ratio. I do think this is still the best overall ultrawide monitor with the least amount of issues for a reasonable price, I'm very happy with mine! biggrin.gif

How is the QNIX better? I know it has a higher refresh rate but does it help you score higher in fps games? Am I missing out by not going for something like the Acer Predator x34?
