OCC Banner

Recommended Posts

I thought i would give a quick heads up that while i was color calibrating a few monitors today i noticed that all of them showed the OCC Banner in the forums to be a tint of purple rather than the blue of the forums and main banner on the front page. i thought it was just a error but even my ultrasharp is showing it with the purple look and that is about matching 99% sRGB right now.

The one on Overclockersclub.com or forums.overclockersclub.com?

 

The one on the front page definitely has a bit of a purple tinge.

I can kinda see the purple tinge off the the right of the words on overclockersclub.com

You do realize that's an image behind logo on the front page, right? I'm pretty sure it's just a lighter shade of blue (at least, every monitor I have makes it a lighter shade of blue including my plasma which is calibrated almost perfectly). :cheers:

Yeah, the front page logo has always looked a bit purple to me, especially right there above the IRC Chat link.

Look at this Image in your browser, then open it in photoshop (making sure your colour management is correct of course)

It looks slightly darker in Photoshop for me - no real purple tint though.

It kinda is. 04004d would be red and blue, which is technically a shade of purple. :P Sure, it isn't 800080. :lol:
