If you have an AMD/ATI card, you don't have to worry about all that nonsense. Just patch the driver and use CRU to add the refresh rate. The only issue is video acceleration won't work, but all you have to do is disable hardware acceleration in Flash and any decoders you're using.

Toasty,

Any ideas on why after patching the AMD driver, and then in CRU creating a 112hz refresh rate in Win 8.1 (on an X-Star DP2710) Windows won't use the 112hz rate as default. After every reboot it defaults back to 60hz and I have to go in CCC and manually select 112hz from the drop down menu?

I haven't been very lucky with Korean monitors at first

I sent back two Qnix 2710's to accessorieswhole. The first one was a non pixel perfect version and it had 5 pieces of dust and stuck red pixel in the middle of the screen. To make the things worse it also had terrible horizontal banding. The second one (perfect pixel) had the worst tint that I have ever seen on any monitor:

The seller offered a partial refund in both cases but I couldn't justify keeping them. Both monitors were simply a pain to look at. I do have to admit that that the communication with accessorieswhole went really smooth but returning both monitors was a major pain in the backside nevertheless. Also, I still have to go through the process of getting my tax back. Already submitted one form to HMRC and I am yet to hear from them.

Anyway, after getting two duds from accessorieswhole I decided to get the Ultimate Pixel Perfect from excellentcastle as they were highly recommended in this thread. Got the monitor and it is pixel perfect indeed. No backlight bleed, no dust under the screen, no bad tinting and it overclocks to 120Hz without any problems. Got Squaretrade warranty for it as well. Better safe than sorry...

So far I've been running it at 60Hz (desktop) and 96Hz (gaming). However, I was wondering whether it was safe to keep it at 96Hz all the time? 96Hz is sufficient because my GTX 680 SLI setup is unable to hit 120fps on ultra settings in most games anyway. I have already searched this thread and 120hz.net but I haven't managed to find any info or any post which clearly states that running those monitors overclocked 24/7 considerably shortens their life or can lead to any issues.

On top of that, I'm tired of dealing with driver bugs, especially NVIDIA. The vast majority of people having problems with refresh rates have NVIDIA cards and didn't follow the instructions to work around the problems. NVIDIA has two ways to overclock, and people are managing to screw up both methods.

Even worse, the OP linked to my overclocking guide but ignored the information in it and wrote incomplete and incorrect instructions.

Why does the OP say it is not necessary to do any patch for NVIDIA when it says to use CRU? If you use CRU, you MUST patch the driver even with a single GPU. If you have GeForce Experience installed, you MUST follow the workaround mentioned on the CRU download page. People keep skipping these steps and assuming CRU doesn't work when it's NVIDIA's driver that's causing these problems.

If you have a 400/500-series GPU or if you have an SLI setup, you MUST use the full patch to get 110/120 Hz even if you're using the NVIDIA control panel instead of CRU. The Titan and the GTX 780 might not need the full patch for SLI, but I'm not able to verify that myself.

If you use the NVIDIA control panel instead of CRU, you MUST install the .inf file or some games won't use the custom refresh rate. This is mentioned in the overclocking guide, but so many people are skipping this step because the OP didn't include this important information. You can use qnix.zip for the QNIX. If you're using Windows 8 or 8.1, you also have to disable driver signature enforcement before you can install it.

If you have an AMD/ATI card, you don't have to worry about all that nonsense. Just patch the driver and use CRU to add the refresh rate. The only issue is video acceleration won't work, but all you have to do is disable hardware acceleration in Flash and any decoders you're using.
Your screen shots show you have GeForce Experience installed but didn't follow the workaround:
If you choose to use the NVIDIA control panel instead of CRU, you need to install the .inf file.
TF2 uses the desktop refresh rate. You should not be having problems with TF2 if you set everything up correctly.
You need to disable hardware acceleration in the Flash player settings. This is mentioned on the download page for the patcher.


Thanks for your guide, I was quite puzzled why I couldn't get past 85hz.

Yes, that's the one. Backlight bleed is getting better

Anyone think it my be good to ask if this forum an be split into sub forums the size it's getting ? Example orders, issues, overclocking, photos?? Just an idea , as it's hard to keep track :-)

What amount were you offered? I already opened a case in Ebay and sent the videos with the fault to ta-korea but the monitor is quite likeable and I wouldn't mind to accept a reasonable partial refund instead of sending it back.

Thanks

Sorry mate, they were so bad that I didn't even bother asking how much they were willing to refund.

This was the first monitor I got:

Stuck red pixel right in the middle of the screen and at least 5 big pieces of dust around it:

Horizontal banding:

The second one had terrible tint.

The one I bought from excellentcastle is very good compared to those two. It has some minor imperfections but I don't have severe OCD so can live with them smile.gif

That's bit too much for me. I wouldn't ever accept a partial refund, just a full one.
