This is playing GW2 and The Witcher. I went back to 60hz after the evening because I didn't notice the difference *shrug*
But more importantly, if someone blows $700 on a monitor I find it a bit moot to say "I don't miss 120hz!" because 120hz monitors only cost in the range of $270-350. Said person is going to feel pretty shit if they buy a U2711HM and didn't consider it a huge upgrade. These are completely different products in completely different price categories lol.
Because 120Hz asks time to get used to it and find the reasons why it's much more pleasing, you'll always have people like my bro's saying that 120Hz is a first class retarded upgrade. They don't even understand why my eyes are feeling tired when playing on their xbox >.< It's like a drug, you have to try it try it try it and you'll never want to go back.
I got a second job last week... and my new college semester started yesterday.
I feel like very soon I'll have the money for some crazy new GPU/other upgrade(s?)... but honestly, with how LITTLE I'll be at my computer, I have a feeling buying anything may be massively delayed.
I suppose we'll see! :O
120hz final step? Humans can't see more frames than that right?
First of all, I'd assume it differs from people to people, but I'm fairly sure I would be able to tell the difference between 120 Hz and 600 Hz, for instance. Not that any monitors of the latter exist. I probably wouldn't be able to say "That monitor there is exactly 600 and that is 120", but I would probably be able to tell which one was higher and which lower.
In general, there is no definite line where you can't perceive the difference.
If you spent about a week playing at 300Hz and then switched blindly to 120Hz; then you'd stand a chance of noticing the difference. You also notice the difference in frame rates in particular when panning quickly.

While I don't think I'd actively notice a difference playing a much higher refresh rate, I do imagine I'd notice the difference after returning to the lower one.
There are a number of times when you don't perceive the difference until you take away the good stuff. You can look at how people talk about graphics as if there haven't been improvements, but tell them to play a few hours of Skyrim, install the high-texture DLC for Skyrim, play a few hours more, and then remove it. Or tell them to increase the uGridsToLoad and promptly take it away a few hours later.
A lot of the things we see now are things we didn't catch being added, but will certainly notice if go away.
On another subject. I think haswell's on-die VRM is brilliant ><. The voltage is so precise, undervolting is a easier to do. Because you don't have to worry about LLC or Vdroop, you can just set a voltage, and test for stability. Right now i'm at like 0.988v (stockspeeds) during prime95. Temperatures now down to lower 60's.
If anything, the only thing i can really complain about is the cheap TIM they used. Honestly, i don't understand the hate towards Haswell, and reviewsites telling people to buy Ivy because it clocks better.
I'm considering to replace the H60 though. Noise level is significantly higher than my Dark Rock C1.
What's this about the Haswell adhesive, could someone elaborate for me?
I'm thinking about upgrading from Sandy to Haswell in the next month after I sell this here tower.
Alright my phone got fixed yet i'm still not pleased.
Backcover is now letting go on the bottom instead of the top. (when i peel 2mm i can see the internals)
So far my plan is to return to the store tommorow demand refund of the repair costs + a new identical device.
Anyone got any advice/hints/similar horror phone repair stories?
phone in question being a xperia Z.
So for the past week or so I've been getting seemingly random and constant disconnects on my laptop wireless. I'm positive it's not on my end, and I have no access to the router or any other hardware inbetween. My question is for you network guys, is this something a router/network hardware is capable of doing? because this is really annoying and borderline unusable. I also at times have to attempt to re-connect multiple times(sometimes upto 10-20 times) before it lets me on and then promptly disconnects me at a random interval.

@Shroudster, depends on the waranty and the repairdescription.
@Evil Inside, Can you elaborate a bit on these points?
*List of hardware (router, modem, laptop)
*Home situation (how is it connected)
*Elaborated problem description, because i'm not sure what is actually going wrong. Disconnected from what.
