In Topic: Best Display Port 1.2 Cable

15 April 2018 - 06:52 AM

Thanks Nimrod, I nearly pulled the trigger on the same Acer monitor but I took a chance on a refurb Dell, came up £400 cheaper so I took a punt on it.  Too late to return it now.

Wish I had held out for the Acer. What do you think of the Predator ? are you pleased with it ?

Thanks for the reply. It happens when no 4K media is displayed. Oddly enough I can watch 4K media on YouTube no problem, I am sure the cable is a basic DP one as there is no identifying markings on the cable.

My 980ti SC supports DP1.2 but I hope to upgrade to a 1080ti SC soon which supports DP1.4 so I think I will grab a good quality one of those cables and be done with it. Not really concerned with cost.

Just to close off this thread, would you all agree that it now looks certain the GPU is dead ?

Thanks phil69, that fixed it !!, pulled the GPU and plugged the monitor into the MOBO, now back up and running. So that eliminates a corrupt OS or the SSD it lives on so I looks like my trusty ole 580 is toast ?


What do you you chaps think ?
