Topped out AMD at 105hz, actually! =D

I dropped it down to 119hz and the portion of the screen that didn't display right went down to just the bottom 15%. Down to 118hz, and now it's working fine. I think because hz aren't stable. They can go up or down 1. And if it's too close to the limit of these monitors, that can happen. I'm considering just running the monitor down at 100hz. It'll be an easier FPS target to hit maxed out, and I know I'm not operating the monitor at capacity.
Giving up so easily? tongue.gif My testing with lower resolutions has found this monitor can accept up to 123 Hz. If you're using automatic timing parameters, 120 Hz = 497.75 MHz, which is too close to 500 MHz. That's probably the problem. Try switching to manual, then drop the vertical total down to 1475. You should be able to get 122 Hz stable that way.

Already did that. I'm finding the Nvidia's harder to deal with than the AMD's. With the radeon, once I set it up for 105hz, it stayed there all the time, in all games/apps, with no issues. Damn nvidia cards. tongue.gif
p.s. It's running at 476mhz.

This kind of thing is very common on high-powered graphics cards (although less common today than a few years ago) and the usual fix is either a bit of hot glue (if the components don't get too hot) or some epoxy to prevent vibration. Those having buzzing or squealing noise problems from their monitors can likely fix it by opening up the unit and identifying which components are making the noise, then applying something to stop the vibration. Sometimes this is done by the manufacturer, and in this case I suspect it is.
You are correct. The PCB is as I found it, I didn't add the hot glue around the capacitors myself.

HyperMatrixX, could you elaborate on any issues you encountered with the AMD method? If I can help it I'd like to avoid having to ugprade my GPU (I have a 6850* right now) while still being able to play TF2 at as close to 120 Hz as I dare.

*before you scoff, I currently average 250 fps at 1080P with a suitable DirectX 9 performance config

The AMD was brilliant....much easier to manage once you got it set up. Didn't have to make any other changes, no glitches, nothing. If you're happy with the performance on your card, no need to change it to get better hz. 105 is what I hit and it's more than enough. Even if you can't hit 105, you should be able to hit 101 which is perfect.

Can you post a screenshot of your 680 doing 120hz ?

Will it work?
