If I get the time to refresh my memory, I will look into it, but it may be a problem with Pascal and newer drivers. In any event high mem clocks aren't a problem Unless they're generating loads of heat
Thanks for the reply Tomcat! I will look into this more. So running my mem at this speed won't have any noticeable long lasting damage except heat output from the GPU?

Also do you happen to know why when using the tightened timing for 120Hz I get a purple rectangular haze block on the left side of my screen? It begins from the left edge goes inward about 3 inches and from top to bottom separated from the edges of the screen by 2 inches.

Is there something I'm doing wrong? I followed the guide to the best of my knowledge and I understand that using Lawson67's timing won't allow a memory downclock but 5054MHz is kind of worrying. Included is a picture of the timing and the default settings I'm using.

Thanks for the help.

Xinoxide My son finally managed to destroy my PLS panel.

Anyone need PCB/wiring/buttons?

Some Tech Nub Now with nvidia supporting both gsync and "freesync", it's definitely a no brainer to pick up a monitor which supports these technologies.

I have two Pixio PX277s and although it's not a game changer imo, it's definitely a nice-to-have for those few singleplayer games that are a bit harder to run.

JackCY A monitor without adaptive sync is nowadays fairly worthless and only suitable for pure Vsync usages such as in the office for some basic text work, or Vsynced video players. The moment one starts messing with interactive graphics, adaptive sync is the way to go.

blackdragonbird Yeah, nowadays there's no point to upgrade to monitor without freesync if you are going to game.

Pixio PX277

Crossover 27 Fast

Crossover 2795QHD

Crossover 27QX144 Cronus

Microboard M340CLZ

I found them on this website. There's others as well. Most of these should have display port and hdmi..

I will look in to the monitors suggested in the previous page. TY.

I actually think adaptive sync makes everything feel smooth, regardless if you can push triple digits or not. I was playing shadow of tomb raider earlier, i got 120 fps most of time, but sometimes I get dips into 90s and it really ruins the immersion on my QNIX, but on my laptop which has gsync, i don't notice that kind of stuff.

caenlen gsync and freesync is a game changer imo... you should upgrade.
