I might make a video but all i have is a Galaxy S3 anyone know if that would capture the high refresh rate?
Run the Refresh Rate Multitool; set Vsync on, disable desktop composition. Then take a relatively long exposure photograph of the screen as the bars are flashing by; if there aren't any skipping frames, congratulations, you have a "true" 110hz monitor, displaying 110 fps.

I'm sure you can capture 60FPS at lower resolution?

Not that it matters.

I've decided to go ahead and order one. Will be doing tests and a review/comparison with the Catleap when it arrives. Seems no bigger of a risk than about a year ago when the Catleap's came out. smile.gif

Yayy thats awesome! I was waiting for somebody like you to get interested in these monitors before purchasing. I've never got to say thanks but without you overclocking my overlord would not have been possible smile.gif

I'm gonna keep an eye on this, I have an Overlord on pre order but might get one of these for a 2nd monitor.

Well the reason I'm interested is that depending on the exact specifics of this PLS panel, it could end up being *better* than LG's S-IPS panels. I also want to test the monitor against a few issues that plague the 2B boards. I'm cautiously optimistic. Let's hope they ship it out soon and also let's hope there hasn't been a PCB switch out with the new batches as had happened with the Catleap a year prior. I'll be covering all the bases when I receive the monitor.

Well I can't wait, your review is going to be the deciding factor if I'm going to get this monitor or not smile.gif (specifically if PLS is all around better than last year's IPS, and if it's safe to overclock) thumb.gif

I'm surprised there is not more buzz about OC potential on this from people who have already purchased...

Anxiously awaiting my new QNIX to compare with my 2B 120Hz Extreme edition wink.gif

Post your results, with the monitor brand, and type (glossy or matte) here, and whether you get any distortion when running at the higher refresh rate.

To overclock, simply open NVIDIA Control Panel, go to Change resolution, select the correct display and click Customize... Then click Create Custom Resolution... Here change the refresh rate to what you want. Click Test and you will find out whether your monitor is capable of running at that refresh rate. If it isn't, keep dropping it until it works.

You may see distortion at higher refresh rates, so just keep lowering it until you're happy. The distortion isn't permanent.

If your screen seems 'darker' or the colours seem wrong when you're running at a higher refresh rate, play around with some colour settings in NVIDIA control panel (brightness, contrast and gamma most importantly)

I assume this should be just as easy for people with AMD cards, have a look here:
http://www.nag.co.za/2013/03/01/weekend-project-overclocking-your-monitor/
Search for AMD on that page. (ctrl-f)

You can also use evga's pixel clock program. A quick google search will find it.

If anyone finds a way to make games run at 120hz in fullscreen mode, I'd be really happy.

Do this at your own risk! thumb.gif

Hello there my friend. First off, Congrats on discovering finding a PLS panel (Seems abit of controversy about its panel type, but regardless) that can do over 100Hz refresh rate. I personally own a Yamakasi 1440P monitor with the "2B board," so I have it running at 120Hz all the time. Most of my games I run on FULLSCREEN do 120Hz refresh rate; however, there are a couple of games that almost no matter what I do, they would do a different refresh rate on FULLSCREEN (typically 60Hz). Crysis 1 and Warhead are particularly the ones for me. However, I did find a remedy that works for me that I have done for nearly every single monitor that I have owned:

(1) Open up CRU OR Nvidia Control Panel

(2) Create a Resolution where either your Vertical or Horizontal pixel number is upped by 1 (EX: If you have a 2560x1440 @120Hz monitor, but games instead play at 2560x1440 @60Hz on FULLSCREEN, create a custom resolution of either 2561x1440 @120Hz, OR 2560x1441 @120Hz, leaving all the over settings like Sync porch, back porch, Total Pixel count, etc. ALONE.). Then Test the resolution to see if it passes. If it does, great!

(3) Launch the game that you want to play, and select the newly created resolution in the game, and you should be running @120Hz in FULLSCREEN

*NOTE: NO GUARANTEES!!! I've just had a great experience with this method whenever games of mine play at different/lower refresh rates than my monitors are capable of.

EDIT: Btw my friend robomartian, can you run a little application called "Powerstrip," so that you can see what refresh rate your monitor actually is running at? It's a great little application that allows you to see exactly what refresh rate your monitor runs at (down to the thousandth).

Until someone runs the multitool, the ability to run 100hz+ without frame skipping is still unconfirmed.
