    Thanks Veteran, I'll see how I go with it.

    With that test I'm fine all the way up to 115hz, anything over that and it starts bouncing between one fps over and one fps under, eg. for 118hz the fps will bounce between 117 & 119 for some reason?

    Dont know why it does that maybe the Overclockable PCB his hits it max threshold. Even though i can run 120hz with no problems i just run at 100hz as its more than enough and my game on BC2 has improved dramtically. I kill most people now before they even raise there gun and even people that see me first who shoot first, an average player, i can down them with ease.:)

    Using VSync?

    Nope, didn't have VSync on. Maybe I should give that a try

    110Hz is the max I can do on auto. 115Hz flickers & 120Hz is a no go.

    The higher the Hz = more coil whine which intensifies on light backgrounds.

    (At 96Hz I can't hear it unless I'm an inch away from the screen. At 110Hz I can hear it from 3ft away. It's a faint buzzing noise.)

    Eh, I'll try out other timings later...

    BF3 110Hz v-sync.

    @Veteran, are you using custom colour & brightness settings or do you have it at stock?

    I have my digital vibrancy set at 30 and my contrast and brightness set at 40 in the nvidia control panel. I also use .icm profiles from my Dell u2410 and they work great. I just up the brightness alittle on the monitor when im playing games and it works great for me.

    Have you tried running at 120hz without setting timings? Just running all on auto once 2560*1440 has been set?

    Yeah, I've used the "Automatic - LCD Standard" timings and this is what it sets to.

    The screen just goes black when I try it.

    I noticed the "Automatic - LCD Best" option isn't shown in my CRU timings like in Scribby's OC video, maybe part of the problem?

    Anyways, I'm using your manual timings for 118Hz which is working fine, but the coil whine.....I'll see how it does when gaming.

    The only time i notice coil whine is when i view Guru3D as i use the standard default white viewing page. I dont hear it at all when gaming. Even when viewing Guru3D its very minimal and i cant be arsed to change back to 60hz as its a slideshow.

    Coil while can be fixed by pouring epoxy glue over certain part of the transistors. There is a video on original page, its looks very easy to do, something else you dont really need to do tbh.

    Im very happy with my monitor:)

    After setting brightness & contrast to 40% the buzzing was reduced significantly.

    (It's louder viewing Guru3D than a white wallpaper)

    Currently I don't really hear it when running 118Hz.

    For the Qnix, I've read that adjusting other settings to drive pixel clock down as low as possible for a specific frequency reduces / gets rid of all the anomalies that you get with overclocking, like darkening (gamma shift), uniformity issues, image retention. These all seem to be related to the display controller itself.

    Might want to try something similar for other monitors, drive the pixel clock down as much as possible. Check Spartan F8's posts on the Korean PLS club for that, maybe those can help.

    Just an update, the issues I was having earlier seem to be related to my OC on the 7970.

    Running the monitor @ 60hz all the way up to 115hz I have no issues with my card OC'd. Over 115hz & card OC'd things randomly start to go funny.

    I put it back @ stock (1000/1450) clocks and everything seems fine again.

    Could be the beta drivers though I'm not sure yet as I haven't had the time to try out the 13.4 WHQL's.

    I dont know about ATI drivers but with Nvidia cards certain drivers give you a black screen and other drivers fail to oc. So yes certain drivers can have an effect on your oc.

    Using AMD pixel clock patch? Tried lowering pixel clock as far as possible by tinkering with the other settings?

    Yes using pixel clock patcher, but no haven't tried tweaking settings yet.

    Been busy with work, kids and trying to get my OC stable on this AMD setup....

    Should have time to mess around with things in the next few days so I'll report back with how things go
