This is aimed at @SweViver primarily, but maybe others can help too.
Can the new face gasket be replaced with one from the 5k+? Are they compatible? Just would like to know before I break it I’m not convinved by the comfort kit, and my modded 5k+ fits my face shape much better.
64Hz native mode is an absolute must for simulators like DCS. Can we expect that to happen? @SweViver - you only mentioned upscale frequencies in a post recently
Anyone else get snow effect when extending the cable? Works fine when plugged in directly but that’s not enough for my playspace. I’m using the officially recommended Club3D 3m extender cable.
Should be compatible as I installed the comfy kit on my 5k+
I got the snow, or sparky effect by extending my Index cable with a 90cm extension, which worked OK with the 5k+. Just saying that it seems to be more or less of a gamble if the extension cables work or not. Same can be said about the DP adapters.
Also, the DP ports on the GPU does matter. I get sparks when I plug my 5k+ in to the “secondary” port.
This is also ok for higher frequencies… Higher freq, better for your eyes.
If we have 90Hz, you can also use smartsmooth with stable 45.
I use hight textures, only flat shadows, no mirrors, no global cockpit lights for higher framerates. Start from supercarrier with 73FPS.
In the F18, you can also deactivate Cockpit reflexions in the Modul options.( +3FPS) ( the Reverb, same settings makes max 42FPS )
I have tested the recommended Club3D 3m cable with 8KX, and i can confirm snow / sparkles. I tried to extend the usb cable with a 3m usb3 extension cable and it seems to draw too much current possibly too high cable resistance . The screen flickers and losses the base stations randomly.
