    TN or IPS PANEL?

    Personally my priority would be Hz>Resolution (1440p is sweet spot for me)>Panel type>extra stuff That is based on overall use, but with lots of gaming, so depending on what you need it for, advice can differ. IPS is great now a days and often can pull high hz and no ghosting etc.. I have up to 165hz (and 144 without oc) on mine and that is a 1440p, it is also 4ms (not that gtg matters that much, often they market differently anyway). Albeit be mindful about IPS if you use your monitor in a dark room, then you will need to either adapt or have a little light source, atleast in my opinion, there is also a gamble sometimes, you might get BB or Glow, but all in all.. I prefer IPS as well.
  2. After much tinkering I seem to maybe have found an acceptable colour scheme.. I had to tinker alot to make it similar to the old panel and it is still abit "darker" but well what can you expect from a price like this. I will make sure to use a colourimeter if I ever get my hands on one. Ty for the advice and help tikker, I reckon going away from all those online guides and instead tweaking it myself helped abit.
  3. Indeed not.. If I don´t have to I don´t want to.. even the minor IPS glow and abit of backlight bleeding at the upper right corner is acceptable tbh.. The whole rma is kinda a lottery, since it is just refurbished monitors you get.. Basically I could get something much worse next time. I don´t think you can up the backlight, atleast I have not seen any option for it. I reckon I will test it out and see if it can be ignored or tinkered enough with to be acceptable.. Maybe I can even get some of the glow and/or BB away (if I put a tiny pressure on the panel it goes away entirely)
  4. Alright. But even with tinkering around, it feels so "dark" and when I turn contrast or brightness higher, it becomes way to much and ruin the colours.. I guess I might have to just up it a tiny bit and maybe live with the tiny bit darker feel to it. (when I say darker, I mean that the colours were might brighter earlier on the other panels) TY for the suggestion. I will see if I can get a colorimeter to test abit.
  5. I might showcase some pictures later on, if needed.
  6. Hi all Today I got yet another replacement monitor (I had my first shipped to repair, then got a replacement with huge issues like damage to the filter, much backlight bleed, etc) But this new monitor is rather weird. It does have alot of IPS glow, but nothing I can´t live with, but when I calibrate it to the usual settings Racing mode - 47 b 47 c - R 100 G 95 B 95 - The colours seems abit meh.. I would not say washed out, but not as lively as on the other two panels. The screen also seems alot darker, as in these settings seems alot darker, than the other panels I had. Do I need to get some monitor device..... or can I test this in another way, if the stuff is correct? I use Display port btw and I have tried to click on nvidia to choose it and select full range under the settings, but that did no difference at all. So any good advice? or do I maybe have to either live with it or endure yet another RMA "gamble"...
  7. I was sure it was tuesday as well.. but no this is not maintenace, it is just a server issue, it happens, rarely but well.. You should expect it to be up between a minute and a few hours
  8. That is not just illigal, but could also be dangerous to you, if you paid then using your cc information. I also think this sounds pretty problematic with the extra stuff, never heard about that and I have used steam since 2003. My advice. Uninstall steam and remove his account etc. Do a malware search and change the passwords of your social media stuff. Then download steam from its original page and install it. Make yourself a user on it and then download one of the many free games (Steam is filled with free to play games) Under the storepage you can click free to play Xbox pass for PC as some suggest is also fine, you basically pay to rent games. I am not really into it, but if you like to play games, complete them and never touch them again, then it is actually a good enough service to be recommended. Steam in itself is safe to use and you should not worry about it at all. But renting accounts etc is against the law.
  9. Did you try to clear the cache of those game, validate the files? You could also try to reinstall steam.
  10. EA is not really known for "banning" people and they make sure to implement a system that makes it annoying to even report. If you play any online FPS, then you should always expect some degree of cheating. There are some community servers in some of the games, I reckon those are the best bet, if you want to play in a if not cheat free enviroment, then atleast less hazard enviroment.
  11. As I said, you can look at the other possible reasons I listed, If it gets any more complex than that, hopefully a bigger techie than me comes along.
  12. If Commodore 64 counts then that was the case. My first PC was based on the Intel 486 We had plenty of different types of consoles as well.
  13. That was what I was told was the most likely fault. But don´t claim it, just tell them that your fans speed up at a certain temperatur no matter what setting or fan curve you use and that it runs at over 100% That should be enough.
  14. You can see my spec on my profile (but I will do it here as well for you) I play 1440p and alot of different games. All from casual rogue like games, GHRTS and modern Adventure RPG´s.. To give an example. I don´t stutter in KC:D all the time, but in certain areas and depending on load, I might get a micro stutter. In old games, I might stutter.. (I have not played CS for years, but I know that audio can trigger micro stutters in that game and well tbh.. many PC´s do stutter due to the coding anyway) When games are online.. you will see lag/stutter/etc.. I don´t know anyone that have a flawless experience with MP games. I would be worried if you had huge stutters all the time and if it happened in all games including SP games. What you can do is. Look at the HPET thread Lower settings/tweak your settings For MP specific look at your ISP and maybe do a route trace? I know Ram/CPU can bottleneck etc.. look at how much resources you use when playing. Hopefully a bigger techie than me will come in with much better advice.
