I think he's talking about the hue. Like the color of the screen can be warmish or coolish.

yes, so if someone could kindly scroll through their monitor settings and see what color temperature they have (either 9400k or 6500k) I would appreciate it.

Not sure where to find the color temp, but I do know that the gamma is different for Macs and PCs. PCs are set at 2.0, I think, and Macs are default 1.8

WinBox is 2.2 Stretch, Macs are at 1.8 in colour gamma settings. I dunno if Adobe RGB 1998 influences the colour temp but I like mine a bit colder than 6500K which I find is too yellow for my tastes.
