I just ordered an X-Star (without that perfect pixel) check.. I really, really hope I get one that doesn't have any dead/stuck pixels. I wonder if the G-sync mod will be made available for these Korean monitors.

Either way, I'm incredibly stoked. How are you guys enjoying your monitors?

Good luck to both of you, my Xstar still amazes me everyday. Sold my 7950's and now I am without GPU's till Wednesday...but then I will have 2 R9-290's. My monitor overclocks to 120hz but I found the sweet spot is 110hz on BF4, 115 and up the colors dont seem to be as rich as 110.

Now that I have three of these, the next time I buy montiors, hopefully they are cheap (price) 30" 4K monitors smile.gif

Hmm, it would be really useful if someone would update the OP overclocking guide. "Make a new profile" is really not enough detail. I'm completely lost in here. I did everything that looks like it should work but still can't see my hz in game. There is like no information out there about this program.

Can anyone explain to me how to do this? I downloaded CRU, but it doesn't look like the screenshots in the OP, and the OP just glosses over a lot of info and I have absolutely no idea what to do in here. I tried just editing my hz up to 96, that does nothing. In fact I can't even figure out how to change resolutions with this program, no matter what settings I put in it won't affect my resolution or refresh rate.
Quote:
To use the utility above: click the stock 60Hz profile, press the copy button, make a new profile and then use the paste button.
Ok, what does "make a new profile" mean here? And it should also be noted that when you click copy, paste disappears. Am I supposed to click "Add"? And if so, under detailed I assume since 2550x1440 isn't an option under standard? But, I see no paste button in the window that pops up. Still, I filled out all the same settings and made one at 96hz.
Quote:
This has created a mirror image of the stock profile. Next, just edit the refresh rate number at the bottom (should be 60 originally) to something like 96.
Ok, but what else? It's definitely not that simple for me, nothing happens when you change that.
Quote:
Here is some explanation + pictures of the window that pops up to edit your custom refresh rate in CRU [CLICK].
Mine doesn't look like this, but similar, is that an old version?
Quote:
This makes a refresh rate profile for your computer of 96 Hz. Once that's done, reboot your computer can go into your computer settings (catalyst control center for AMD, and Nvidia control panel for Nvidia) and choose the refresh rate that you just created.
The refresh rate I created didn't show up, I was able to make Windows run at 96hz with nvidia control panel though. Won't show up in games so does me no good.

And while I'm here asking questions I've got one more for you, I was rather disappointed that my QX2710 didn't work with my other two monitors (27", 1080) for Nvidia Surround. I was reading that it is probably because of the sync polarity. I see that can be changed in CRU (well, whenever I get it to work that is...) Will this screw with my monitor? I'd really like to be able to do nvidia surround.

Thanks a bunch in advance for any help you can provide, I guess I'm the only one too dumb to figure out these instructions frown.gif

3 of these would be sweet but I dont have the desktop space for it lol. My 27" sammy is only 1080 so I have it running off my igpu on my 4770k, I just load up MSI afterburner, real temp, and windows resource monitor so I can see loads and temps real time when I am gaming

Yeah you can do that. I just like doing it this way, I want maximum gpu power for gaming. It may not have any effect on gpu power but it's easy to do it this way.
