I'd used the AMD card for so long that I completely forgot about the little green LED on the monitor bezel to indicate 3d mode was enabled. I put the AMD back in and re-ran the setup and it worked just like it always had. The smoothness returned too. Disappointing, but I should have done my homework before buying the 980.

So at this point, it looks like I have two options.
1. Sell the 980 and stick with AMD
2. Keep the 980 and upgrade to a current monitor that utilizes ULMB via hardware.

Does that sound about right?

If those are really are my options, then do you think there's enough difference in hardware ULMB vs. Strobelight to warrant the cost?

Thanks again Toasty.
The third option is to flash each monitor's EDID with the EDID override, but I'm not sure how easily that can be done with the BenQ monitors. I know the ASUS monitors require a hardware modification to remove the write protection:

There's a chance the BenQ monitors might not be write-protected. You can use CRU to export a .bin file of the EDID override.
