Nope, because it's not real 10bit.

To be honest with you yes i do however i could make a 110hz profile as i have a colorimeter but my 120hz profile looks just great anyhow and i cant be bothered to make another one for 110hz which wont look much different anyhow lol

I still need to get mine overclocked/tweaked... I consider myself a videophile, but this monitor is perfect -- the clarity, the color, etc. I'd love to see what the limits are of this thing...
post #18466 of 25893
Just got mine hooked up... huge difference to my 5 year old BenQ FP241VW

1 dead pixel at super top left

perfect backlight (no bleed)

seller is dream-seller @ $299.90 + 3 year square trade warranty ($41.99)

So you can you can make presets in CCC to flick over to lower refresh rates on the desktop using keystrokes once you finish gaming!....Or simply set 110hz in CRU using standard LCD timings which will allow your ram to down clock on the desktop!... Which is what i do now 24/7!....Also i have set my games that support 120hz refresh rates to flick my monitor over to 120hz once i start the game and then once i finish the game it will put my monitor back to 110hz which allow my ram to downclock again on the desktop!

However it might just be worth staying at 110hz 24/7 (if your monitor can hit 110hz) and just forgetting 120hz as i really cant see the difference anyhow plus using LCD standard timings in CRU will allow your ram to downclock on the desktop using AMD cards

If your monitor is capable of hiting 120hz it will do it with these timings below!...However set a lower refresh rate for the desktop to lower your cards ram



110hz LCD Standard timings in CRU which will allow your ram to downclock on the desktop below

Okay so LCD Reduced for 110Hz worked for both monitors but I get those scan lines on the sides.. I read toastyx has a fix but that the fix doesn't work when playing games in full screen is that correct? I might just keep both monitors at 96Hz but it would be nice if I could get them both to 110Hz. The other 110Hz timings in your image don't work for me.

Correct it uses an 8 Bit +FRC panel and 10 bit consumer media does not exist. Also, one needs an AMD Firepro or Nvidia Quadro gpu to send/receive a 10 bit signal and to use one of the few programs (certain versions of Photoshop) which support 10 bit content.

If these timings work you can then try to up your values in an attempt to allow your ram to down clock on the desktop...Many Nvidia cards users can use default timings and hit 120hz which will give them a pixel clock or around 480mhz...However i do not know how you have hit a pixel clock of 497mhz?

Also yes you most likely will be able to keep these timings when you are running SLI you will just need to use the full patch


Hey man,

Thanks for trying, but I'm still getting the lines even with your settings. I mentioned before that they appear at 80, 96, and 120... So maybe my monitor isn't cut out for it? I have to be honest that I'm not really sure what all those settings mean though, so I'm not sure how I could try tweaking it more!

To be honest, it still looks great at 60Hz, but having the option to go up to 120 for gaming would be awesome... I'll keep tinkering and would welcome other suggestions biggrin.gif
