Have you tried increasing your voltage to your GPU?

I like CRU because it allows you to see the decimal points in the exact refresh rate you end up with.

Edit: Yours are exactly correct 120.000Hz. There must be something different between our monitors...

I don't use the catleap driver at all. I don't think it makes any difference, though.

Maybe the cable but seems like other people with the red dots (which I'm not familiar with) are stumped as well.

What about your Windows install mode and Compatibilty Support Module?
Recently I noticed that my AMD card definitely acts differently with CSM enabled in BIOS. I have Win 8 installed in UEFI mode but unless I enable CSM I cannot adjust my GPU voltage in MSI afterburner.

Can anyone take a photograph of the red dots?

I'll get you the picture later today, at work now, it's like 10:30 here in Norway. I actually just uninstalled Precision X as some people complained about overvolting causing some issues, but this was a while ago on the qnix thread. I can try and overvolt later and overclock my GPU's and see if that helps ( 780Ti SLI) I can try CRU too and your timings, couldn't hurt. I don't know anything about the CSM, what is that good for exactly? can you enlighten me? :d

Compatibility support module is for running non-UEFI components in UEFI mode as far as I know. Some brand new hardware is coming with hybrid-bios that works either way

You guys have tried different timings and had some good some bad results. Have you ever thought about rolling back your video card driver to something earlier and see if you get different results.

I have mentoned it before a newer beta driver from amd did not work with my timings that I have now.


Look at every possibility before giving up. Even cables make a difference. Two identical cables could have 2 different results. I thought I had a quality dvi cable which gave me headaches so I went to tiger direct and bought another
10' 28awg dvi cable has had better results. Then I ordered a monoprice 24awg dvi cable and it works even better.
What I'm getting at is its not always going to be plug and play.
And getting to 100hz is nothing to sneeze at when its not certified to run at that refresh let alone 120hz.

Yeah I totally agree with you, I have tried a lot of things, but not a driver rollback. I'll give that a go. 24AWG doesn't exist in norway, so no go there. And, finally, I would be very happy at 100hz, or even 96hz, but still getting scan lines. Which is absolutely not cool, especially considering my qnix went right to 110 without automatic timings. I'm here on OC.net, I'm not looking for plug and play wink.gif
The frustrating thing is that my OC is extremely limited, I would not be looking for advice and questioning my setup if i had a stable 100hz. Most people seem to have no problems achieving 100, so I have to try and figure out why I can't.

It's either the panel, the tcon board, the LVDS cables, or even the DVI board. Yeah you got a good qnix but a not so good yamakasi.

Oh and to the member who said this isn't certified for 120hz. Actually yes the TCON board, which is responsible for the timings is certified and designed by LG for 120hz. It is everything else in the setup not up to par. Mainly the LVDS cables and the panel itself...

You must have forgotten what I said a few posts back before I said it again. Yes I realise the TCON board is certified to run up to 120Hz, but none of the other parts are. Whether the TCON board can reach 120Hz is a moot point with the Korean builds as its not manufactured certified for 120Hz. It's just a possibility.

Which is my point exactly, its a possibility "as-is". Replace the part not getting you there and you will probably be hitting 120hz easily. Finding that part is the not so easy task, lol... I should have my overclocking kit here soon, and will try and build my own LVDS cable, so lets see how my panel does...

Hi All

Sorry to sort of just barge in (just dropped a post in newbies section) but been following this thread for a couple of weeks prior to getting '2B' from Green Sum last Friday.....Ive had the aft off so decided to have a play about following the Nvidia guide but I cant seem to squeeze any more than 70hz out of it frown.gif but since ive no experience I was wondering how much of a diff fine tuning etc makes ?

Im running a single EVGA 980 GTX if that helps? and my Monitor is a 4F2L, I also notice the box doesn't actually mention its the OC version like I believe the early ones did ?

Cheers

It seems the Catleap price went up frown.gif I guess I will be going with the Qnix after all.
