The first two items match but when going from light boost and non light boost the monitors timings change and becomes a mismatch.. So it cant be done.. The driver wont even let you try to see what its like. Its an Nvidia thing.. .
It actually would work if you use the exact same timings as LightBoost on the GD245HQ's, provided the GD245HQ sync'd to the same timings as well. There are many non-LightBoost 120Hz monitors that successfully sync to the same timings normally assigned to a monitor in LightBoost mode, but it requires the use of ToastyX CRU (much harder) instead of ToastyX Strobelight (much easier).
That said, I do not recommend mixing and matching LightBoost / non-LightBoost monitors in spanning mode.

They're actually two separate utilities. ToastyX Strobelight is specially designed for LightBoost use, while ToastyX Custom Resolution Utility is a more advanced user utility that can also additionally be used for LightBoost if you need far more control over modes. ToastyX Strobelight is much easier to use but may not accomodate all special use cases.

Everything works great but like once a day or maybe even less, my monitor is going black and my pc does the "plug out -> plug in" sound, it's the same when you plug in/out an usb stick.
Does it happen at any specific pattern, such as under high GPU load? Other computer upgrades that you did at the same time, would be relevant information.Edited by mdrejhon - 8/8/13 at 8:44pm
