Most see an improvement with different timings ... like these ...Horizontal
- front porch 48, sync width 32, back porch 12, blanking 92 and total 2652Veritcal
- front porch 1, sync width 1, back porch 3, blanking 5 and total 1445
I've seen some minor variations in Horizontal - back porch and blanking. I bet Lawson will have some suggestions.
Nvidia GPU @ 120Hz will look like this .... TY Lawson
Note: to read the timings (increase image) Rclick lower rhand corner "original" then click image again to magnify
Quick Update ... I think there might be some truth to the older/original QX2710's being more consistent Overclockers!
My recent ebay purchase of a NiB QNIX QX2710 E2 was from a guy that purchased it way back in August 2013 from Green-Sum ($269?) for his dad's.
He bought 2 at the time, thinking his Dad might like one, but lucky for me It sat in storage, until I bought it last weekend.
Wow I was very pleased ... No dead pixels / minimal BLB lower R corner only slightly visible on a black screen. Loaded the QNIX driver and went straight to the NV panel to see what she could do. After following this thread for a couple months I thought I'd be lucky to reach 110Hz and would have been OK with 96Hz. BAM 120Hz right out of the box without even touching the timings, confirmed in Widows and http://www.testufo.com/#test=frameskipping
. Had some color shift, will work on that tomorrow, along with some real world gaming impressions. Another thing different from most other member descriptions is my DVI-D stock cable was a beefy 5'er not the commonly described 3' cable, nice for me. I also replaced the power brick cord with one from a Corsair PSU for the US plug (ditched the cheezy adapter). If I have a complaint so far I would take a "Glossy" over this Matte finish any day, but this Matte is an improvement over the older Dell/Samsung Matte finishes
PS long day ... but should I try to lower my pixel clock @120Hz with different timings even though it's clocking fine without changing the timings? Some say you shouldn't be above 450? Is that correct?Edited by TomcatV - 4/19/14 at 9:50am
