What to expect? How much import duty looking at for UK?

**MOD EDIT**

I'm going to amend the OP with some of the most useful posts in the thread.

I got to 117Hz @ the following timings:


120Hz gives me a pixel clock of 459.86MHz and a 2 vertical lines of artifacting pixels. Most likely a cable issue as I'm still on the stock cable.

Gamma shift continues further on from 110Hz to 117Hz. When I set to 117Hz and applied the 110Hz color profile, I felt the monitor was ever so slightly darker. Popped over to http://www.lagom.nl/lcd-test/gamma_calibration.php and gamma was (visually) about 2.3 - 2.4 @ 117Hz, 2.2 @ 110Hz.

Measured gamma quickly at 110Hz (a 30s test with black, grey 127, and white patches) and 117Hz. 110Hz gave 2.18 gamma, and 117Hz gave 2.34 gamma. Spot on.

When (if) I get to a flat 120Hz I'll calibrate for that as well. No sense calibrating for 117Hz as it will (may) not be a standard refresh rate that I'll be using.

Some photos coming right up of the monitor at: (EDIT: at night, right now the colors will be affected by the current ambient light)
1) 60Hz - no color profile
2) 60Hz - 60Hz color profile
3) 96Hz - no color profile
4) 96Hz - 96Hz color profile
5) 110Hz - no color profile
6) 110Hz - 110Hz color profile
7) 117Hz - no color profile
8) 117Hz - 110Hz color profile


@Overlord Tempest users, Agent-A01, Veteran, & others: How does the Overlord Tempest respond to high overclocks which it cannot handle? Let's say you top out at 108Hz or something, how does the monitor behave after that? Black screens, corruption, scan lines, vertical lines, or what? Do the colors change with overclocking? I've heard the IPS monitors (Catleap?) have scan line brightening as a side effect in contrast with the PLS gamma shift. I'd love to know if that is all due to the PCB.

These PCBs act quite differently to overclocking. When I open up my monitor maybe I'll take pics of the PCB. Are there any Overlord PCB pics out there?

AFAIK, Titans / 780s (and whatever is there by extension) don't need any patchers since Nvidia was basically pushing monitor overclocking for these cards and acknowledges Korean monitors (there was once a changelog that mentioned a Korean monitor issue being solved).

Nvidia & AMD both have single GPU and SLi / CF pixel clock patchers IIRC. I used the AMD patcher and everything was fine. The higher refresh rates don't show up if the drivers aren't patched.

BTW, guys, excellent links to read:

I have no idea why 75Hz has tighter timings than 74Hz. Might want to match their timings if you want to try 74Hz? Single-link DVI is limited at 165MHz, don't forget. If you want higher refresh rates, you need to tighten your timings. You might also need to use the AMD pixel clock patcher by ToastyX, not sure whether 165MHz is a DVI limit, AMD limit, or both.

What monitor are you using right now? Care to provide a frameskip photo?

EDIT: Hmmm pixel clock patcher is for exceeding the dual-link DVI 330MHz implemented in drivers. Makes sense, 330MHz = 2 x 165MHz although dual-link DVI has no bandwidth limit (GPU TMDS transmitters, cables, and display controllers hit a wall at some point).

AFAIK ToastyX's patcher should fix those issues.



@eclap, I run 96hz daily mainly for oldschool, MMO, MOBA ... but for FPS games that extra boost to 120 is quite noticeable.





@op, expect THE BEST FRIGGEN MONITOR AND RESOLUTION EVAR for like a month, then you start to want a 32" 4k display.
Also you can never go back to a 1080p display because they now all look like trash.

still though, going from 60hz to 90ish will be nice. not to mention the 1440p resolution, I kinda really need that for photo editing, 1080p on 27" is not enough for me.

wahahahha rofl, I don't have the money tonight man, gotta wait for next payday Otherwise I think I'd do it lol, seriously xD Would be so awesome.

I think final cost will be 300 euros (hopefully) and I can offset that with the sale of my old 23" samsung which would be like minus 100-150 euros. So maybe 200 euros total cost for a 27" inch monitor? ****ing awesome.

Customs are variable it seems, I paid $70 for mine, $400 for the monitor at accessorieswhole (pixel perfect version, mostly scam).

Nope, no problem cranking 117Hz with tightened timings on my 7970 CrossFire. Seems like my cable is the limit. Got 3 x 3ft cables here to test but first I need to rearrange my rig for the cable to reach.

That's how I feel about this monitor. Almost every day. So beautiful...

This is looking to be a MASS order lol, glad to help y'all spend your money.

Nope, not necessary. If you want to get the best overclocks, then it might be worth it to try out different cables. It's almost random, thickness doesn't really matter (despite the electrical arguments, empirical evidence suggests otherwise), and the shorter the better. Which is why I got thick 3ft. monoprice 24awg cables.

96-110Hz should be doable on pretty much anything. Above that is where you need to go the extra mile.

@eclap, the 24AWG DVI-D dual-link cable did get less artifacting at 120hz than a standard cable. At 96hz I didn't notice any difference.

If you have the extra $15 laying about, its worth it.
