no you're fine I used a refund once within a month lol. Just be persistent

Ok to Nvidia card owners....as well documented if anyone bothered to read ToastyX post when they grabed his CRU from his site ( and i know not many have read his notes and just grabbed CRU from his site due to some of the questions we have seen in this forum ) GeForce Experience is known to cause issues with EDID overrides such as resolutions being listed in the NVIDIA control panel but not in the Windows screen resolution settings....i have been getting this on and off randomly having used both methods to overclock and only with GeForce Experience installed...here are the methods to overclock,

Method 1: to overclock your monitor with a Nvidia card....use driver patch if you need to...if you are using SLI ( you need to patch and you need to use the full patch ) uninstall Nvida GeForce Experience and create your custom resolutions with CRU,

Method 2: same as above as regards the driver patch however Import the blank-extension.dat into CRU when making your custom resolutions which is hoped to enable you to keep GeForce Experience without it cause issues with EDID overrides,

Method 3: same as above as regards the driver patch however use the Qnix monitor driver and set your custom resolutions in NVCP...this method is also believed to enable you to keep Nvida GeForce Experience installed but some stubborn games may not see your custom resolutions without using CRU

I can confirm after trying all of the above methods that leaving Nvida GeForce Experience installed weather using the blank-extension.dat method or using the Qnix driver i have still found that about 70% of the time windows does indeed see your custom resolutions...however about 30% of the time regardless to which method you have used Nvidia GForce Experience will cause issues with EDID overrides with your resolutions being listed in the NVIDIA control panel but not in the Windows screen resolution settings...and if windows does not see your custom resolutions neither will your games...

Checking NVCP to see if your 120hz/96hz has loaded is also completely useless as it will always report that it has loaded even when Window resolution does NOT see it....IE.."NVCP" ..says 120hz....however you could find on random occasions that if you check windows resolutions it only has listed 60hz...so therefore you believe your 120hz or 96hz profile is loaded and working however in fact is has NOT...however you would never know this unless you had checked windows resolution advanced settings tab and seen only 60hz listed or you was playing a game with vsync enabled and only hitting 60FPS...

Most people i believe after a while of having there monitor overclocked and checked the first time around to make sure everything was working as intended and windows and there games could see there custom resolutions would never know that on curtain occasions there custom resolutions had infact not load into windows if they have Nvidia GForce Experience installed!

Right now i am testing weather NOT loading Nvidia GForce Experience at boot up will help...and only running it on demand to set up my games which is why i want to keep it installed anyhow....or weather to use Windows task scheduler and to set a delay to load Nvidia GForce Experience at boot will help at all...along with leaving ToastyX a message informing him of this problem...however right now i have no reason to believe that any other piece of software i have installed is conflicting with my custom resolutions...

It is as well documented that Nvidia GForce Experience being installed can course this very problem and all the work a rounds do help but do not cure this problem and i also believe that anyone using any of the work arounds and having Nvidia GForce Experience installed will be on occasions in complete ignorant bliss that on this particular windows session there custom resolutions have not loaded into windows resolutions regardless of what NVCP is showing them and so therfore there games are not seeing there custom resolutions also on these occasions.

Edit: BTW it is worth noting that i ran for well over a couple of months without any problems at all with windows not being able to see my custom resolutions when Nvidia GForce Experience was not installed!





EDIT: After talking with ToastyX the creator of CRU and the driver patches we all use it appears that i have cured my problems...going into CRU hitting the delete button at the top of CRU To reset back the display to default configuration...and then running the reset-all.exe....i have now been able to delete all the EDID overrides configurations and start over...i am now back to using the Qnix monitor driver and using NVCP to crate and set my custom resolutions with Nvidia experience installed....i also now seem to have my 120hz custom resolutions constantly being seen in windows resolutions again...

All of the above is something to bear in mind if you encounter problems and have moved from using CRU to using the Qnix monitor driver method along with creating your custom resolutions in NVCP method which i posted last week !

Many thanks to ToastyX for his help and support with my problem and his great software!... which without none of us would be able to overclock our monitors!

Working as intended again below

Also just saying , these monitors are great.

I may complain and such but thats just because I strive for perfection which you can't get ... ever lol.

Even my expensive Dell U2711 had issues.

The small tiny patch of a yellow hue on the bottom is very minor, and I have no dead pixels and BLB so what might bother me might not bother you.

hi,

looking to upgrade to 1440p and have few questions that hopefully someone here can answer.

1, which brand to go for? Q-Nix, Yamakasi, X-Star, Monex or other?
2, is it worth paying for pixel perfect screens or should I just take the chance?
3, will my Xeon 1230v2 + 2SLI 2GB GTX670 OC cope with that resolution? I'm aware of VRAM.

I've settled for Matte Samsung PLS. If it can manage 60+Hz after OC, I'll be fine.

I'd really want it to be pixel perfect, but as above not sure if I should pay extra.

I would also like stand that's not too wobbly, but obviously that's not a deal breaker.

thanks
post #13915 of 25911
Well the Monex do not overclock, so don't look for one of those. The whole pixel perfect thing varies. Some do guarantee 0 but they are closer to $400. Most people get the Qnix, you should be fine with SLI, depends highly on games of course. I wouldn't get the 0 with the extra cost personally.

Yes thank you Osteoman there have been so many things i would like to have posted in the OP!..i believe it could greatly benefit from an update!.. which would help many new members out with problems like the one i have just encountered...and also my bent frame guide in the OP would be nice and could help many people out...also i believe it would stop many people having to ask the same questions over and over and over again with these posts being lost in this near 1400 page thread!....and with the search facility being far from perfect!

I concur. I'm thinking about working on my minimal black light bleed at some point and I was worried that when the time comes I won't be able to find your guide. Lol

Still thinking about whether it's worth it, on mine it's very minimal really.
