    Worth upgrading from a i7 7700k right now or should I continue to wait ?

    You never need to re-install Windows. You can do it if you want to or if you have issues you don't know how to fix, but ever since Windows 10 those are actually very rare. This OS can smoothly be moved from hardware to hardware, of course you'll generally need to reactivate Windows but that's...

    If Air Link can have ASW that would be a big deal.

    I'm not getting my hopes up at all but it's interesting nonetheless. I don't have any major complaints with the CX right now, just minor quirks. But some of them wouldn't exist if it was actually a monitor so yes... curious to know more about this Gigabyte thing.

    Yeah we are stuck with 72hz since last update. Sucks as I really wanted to benchmark 90hz on some titles with my CPU/RAM upgrade. I would like to think it's because the 120hz update is coming soon. (probably just dreaming though, but the hardware is capable and they have sort of hinted at it)

    So I guess this specific model has no issues then! Thanks for the info.

    New Silverstone Alta F1

    Is there a good way to know beforehand whether a GPU cooler will work or not in those cases? The Alta F1 is appealing to me but I have really no clue if my Asus TUF 3090 will work in it.

    5800X performance for $50 less?! Intel Rocket lake i7 11700K Review

    Is that a US thing? There's virtually unlimited stock in Europe since launch, it's like Rocket Lake isn't selling at all (and nor should it - I say that while running a 11900k myself). It's also a ridiculous 200€ higher than the 10900k. But I have not seen the lower end SKUs going out of stock...

    I measured it on my unit with a meter and it was like the reviews said. 25 is around 100, 30 around 120 etc. I did not measure higher values because I have no interest in those and use the TV in a dark room (in practice I use 20-25 for SDR).

    Bluebooth audio is very high latency though (200ms+), it kinda makes sense. There is a low latency protocol (30-40ms) but it's rare and often not properly implemented even.

    Oh wow wasn't expecting that. I'll wait a bit more to install it though (probably not even available in Europe yet). Although I'm not sure yet how this will compare to manual calibration for a small framerate range like I am doing now. Since we can only have one single "Game" profile, having...

    As a single user you don't need a center channel, no. It would only bring a tiny gain of intelligibility for voices, in theory. My L/R Genelecs are set up the same way as Tol pretty much. (although I'm a little closer to the screen with a correspondingly different angle for the speakers)...

    I thought I might have a lot myself but quick maths say I got about half of what you got. Similarly low SDR brightness and due to COVID lockdowns I've played an old MMO with a static HUD (which can be considered somewhat "abusive") a LOT - probably 1k hours. And yes the set still looks...

    Nvidia rtx 3090 discussion

    My TUF 3090 has minimal coil whine in specific conditions, mostly when I hammer it with CUDA. However my Fractal R5 case does a fantastic job of blocking 99.9% of it - that's what soundproofing closed cases are good for, blocking higher frequencies. Vibrations and fan noise (except tiny ones of...

    Ah yes thanks for reminding of that - the sharpness setting at 10 does do something at 1080p specifically. Won't matter to most people here I imagine, but good to keep in mind nonetheless.

    I have seen Vincent Teoh and others saying 0 is neutral. To my eyes, in game mode + PC mode there is no difference between 0 and 10 anyway. It's like the sharpness setting is bypassed. Haven't tried much higher values, though.

    Latest driver was buggy for me (g-sync not really working, 120hz not working), but swapping back and forth between scaling modes ended up fixing it anyway. Now it's all working perfectly like before.

    Nvidia rtx 3090 discussion

    It's hot on my Asus 3090 TUF too (stock clocks, 350w power and quiet BIOS) while gaming. If I can reach 94c in winter in a cold room like I am now (and it was NOT a demanding game) I'll 100% be throttling this summer. Not sure it matters, however. (I suspect the throttling to be negligible for...

    RTSS has an "application detection level" setting. I put that on the most aggressive, high and then it works in 100% of games (I own hundreds) and apps (warning: it can also work for video players and browsers and such, so you might want to make exclusion profiles!). In theory it could trip off...

    LG 48CX

    I use a RTSS global cap at 117 because it's dead on accurate and perfectly reliable unlike nvidia's which completelely fails for half the games I play (and I make custom profiles for games I want to play at 60 fps or whatever). If I use an in game limiter I cap it at 115 because they often let...

    Yeah that's why I've forced myself a bit at first to get used to it instead of relying on software. Heck I had a very a strange bug once where asking windows to display a pure black screen did not turn the pixels off completely, it was just very very dark grey. A reboot fixed it and it's...

    I am saying that when I turn it back on after using the screen off function, it's in ABSL mode and it takes motion on the screen to go back to normal brightness. If I do a proper on/off cycle (quickstart or not) this doesn't happen. But yes the pixels are off so it's not going to be harmful...

    LG 48CX

    When you turn the screen off like this I'm 100% sure it won't run the lightweight pixel refresh though. It's still on and even triggers ABSL for some reason. I'm not saying you should just do a full poweroff all the time but once a day at least (recommendation is every 4h or something but...

    Good catch on the "hdmi support" :) Without deleting the resolution there also I could still select 4096x2160 and integer scaling was still broken because of it (nvidia treated 4096x2160 as the native resolution and scaled to that...). Now it's all good!

    I didn't know either but I found it: edit extension blocks, then double click on TV resolutions.

    ABSL isn't bothering me ever, with brightness 20-30 in SDR. I've not seen it happen in a game or video, only on the desktop when leaving a static window for a little bit (I don't do work on this display so don't care). Only way I can make it happen in a game is by leaving a mostly static menu...

    80 in a dark room is nuts. I guess you can get used to just about anything though, some people do use their LCDs at max brightness (often the out of the box setting) day and night... In my personal experience even smartphones are often waaay too bright in dark rooms with automatic settings (also...

    V-sync on this is just as laggy as on LCDs, there is no difference other than pixel response times, obviously (which can make a significant difference on some panels but still). You can do lagless v-sync if you have spare horsepower and the game isn't too demanding. Or just cap 0.01 below...

    60hz requires the "high" BFI setting to look decent which means brightness (even with OLED light 100) will only be adequate for a really a dark room. And that is assuming the flickering doesn't bother you to begin with. Depending on content and on your eyes, it could end up being rather unpleasant.

    4 years is pretty good though. What OLED light setting did you use before and what is it at now? And for how long was it running at the original setting?

    I got the GOMRVR strap (cheap Chinese stuff) and it's more comfortable than the Elite strap (but no battery). It's cheap, very light and really well built. I read reviews saying it's the most comfortable strap - and I have to fully agree. I'm thinking I'll use this strap when doing wired PC...

    Is Noctua overkill if not overclocking 5900X?

    So you're running the Noctua at 100%? That is way too loud for me I need it around 50-60% under the heaviest loads. But I won't be OCing my 5950 though (or Rocket Lake, IDK yet what it will be).

    I somewhat commonly get no signal with my 3090. I just turn the TV on and off a few times (Quickstart+ has to be disabled) and it ends up working. I also do that when the display is "glitchy" (frequent black flashes or the white lines some people have mentioned). Another thing that has weirdly...

    Yea it has been tested and measured, anything other than game mode has a quite a bit more input lag. As always some people will not mind and the higher the refresh rate the less noticeable it is. ISF at 120hz is playable, but at 60hz (or 60fps with VRR) it reaches unbearable territory for me...

    My understanding is that you should only run it manually when you notice major uniformity issues. It has worked for me (ran it once) with vertical banding that was slightly noticeable even outside of a pure 5% grey test.

    Yeah it works great and I prefer it even for seated games I think. For games with poor performance like flight sims 60hz mode is actually a godsend (no ASW unlike with Link). It actually doesn't noticeably flicker, which surprised me. I know people say 60hz mode flickers hard on the Reverb on...

    If you disable the Quickstart option (which I did because it's buggy) turning it off with the remote does a full power cycle (keep the TV connected to power and it still won't prevent the automatic pixel refresher), you can notice because there's a noticeable delay when turning the TV back on...
