Thanks i must have missed that read me file but the link you gave got me sorted out i appreciate it.

The only other questions i have left is
1.)am i using the right color profile its labelled "Native dispcal 120hz 200cdm.icm" i believe from "lawson", people on the forums have mentioned a certain number of brightness clicks but i couldnt find how many times to hit the brightness+ button from an absolute dim to get the best quality.

2.) do i need a driver for my monitor if i have a r9 290x or is that only needed for nvidia and im mostly going to be playing battlefield 4 do i still need the color profile set and CCC set to 120hz? or do i need to just select 2560x1440 120hz in video settings of the game and not change between 60 and 120hz in CCC.

3.)Do these screen shots look correct? http://imgur.com/yMvyD5R http://i.imgur.com/0ujmbwt.jpg

4.)If i want to run my monitor at 110hz what numbers and settings do i need to change in CRU? is it the same as others have posted even though they are using nvidia and the nvidia software? With those settings what is the best color profile to use?

Thanks for all your help and i will definitely donate once i get some money transferred in my paypal thumb.gif

1.)am i using the right color profile its labelled "Native dispcal 120hz 200cdm.icm" i believe from "lawson", people on the forums have mentioned a certain number of brightness clicks but i couldnt find how many times to hit the brightness+ button from an absolute dim to get the best quality

Answer = I calibrated that ICC profile at a brightness of 200cd/m which is about 17-18 clicks up on BRI+ button from a black screen

2.) do i need a driver for my monitor if i have a r9 290x or is that only needed for nvidia and im mostly going to be playing battlefield 4 do i still need the color profile set and CCC set to 120hz? or do i need to just select 2560x1440 120hz in video settings of the game and not change between 60 and 120hz in CCC.

Answer = You do not need a monitor driver when using CRU with AMD cards!...The color profile will automaticly change with the refresh rate as yasamoka has already explained!... I do not need to set 120hz in CCC before i play my games that support 120hz and that i have set the refresh rate of 120hz in the games graphic options!...With Vsync on i am still hitting 120fps even when 110hz was set on the desktop....So no you do not need to set your 120hz profile in CCC before you play the game!...The game sees that your monitor is capable of 120hz As long as you have made a valid 120hz profile in CRU and you have preset a 120hz refresh rate in the games graphic options then It would appear to seamlessly auto switch your monitor to that refresh rate!...At least in my case it does with all my game that support 120hz such as BF4...Tomb raider 4....World of tanks.....And once i close the game and i am back on the desktop it has auto reset 110hz

3.)Do these screen shots look correct? http://imgur.com/yMvyD5R http://i.imgur.com/0ujmbwt.jpg

Answer = Yes

4.)If i want to run my monitor at 110hz what numbers and settings do i need to change in CRU? is it the same as others have posted even though they are using nvidia and the nvidia software? With those settings what is the best color profile to use?

Answer = Yes those timings should work for AMD cards as well as Nvidia cards if there monitors can indeed hit 110hz!...Use the Values in my screen shot below for my 110hz timings which will allow your ram to down clock on the desktop...You can run 110hz 24/7 using these timings....I am using my 120hz ICC profile for my 110hz custom resolution and i am happy with it!....Also it is the same one you are already using!

Lawson, I want to try those timings, cause my GPU is having the same downclocking issues. But, I cant see the numbers. Could you post them or take a clearer "windows snip" picture?

Is there a quick, simple and easy way to overclock? I'm just wanting to go to 110hz. I'm see'ing all these people talk about all these different programs and testing this and testing that and color profiles etc. and it's got me a bit worried. I'm not the best with computers and was hoping there is a way to quickly get the over clock done via installing a program or two and typing in a few settings.....

any advice?

Nvidia or AMD? It's really easy if you have Nvidia because their control panel supports overclocking natively. AMD takes an extra step or two.

I have Gigabyte Radeon R9 290, so AMD

It's not too bad - you need to run a patch file, then you need to setup the overclock with the Custom Refresh Utility, then you can select it in CCC. 110 MHz can take some fiddling (depending on the individual monitor), if you are happy at 96 Hz it's pretty much three clicks to get it working.

96 would probably be fine. My FPS rarely reaches 110 or 120 anyway, and at 1440p it's going to be even more difficult. So wouldn't 96 be just fine for me since I don't plan on having 120+ FPS? Or is there still a difference regardless of my FPS....?

Sorry for so many questions. I know they've been answered at some point in this thread, but there's no way I can sift through 1800+ pages. It would be a great idea if this club actually got its own forum where we could have individual topics discussing the various subjects like overclocking, purchasing, trouble shooting, mounting, etc.

Hello,

I'm testing my QNIX using R9 295X2. Currently using Dual Link DVI-D connection because my Active Adapter haven't arrived yet.

In 120Hz it shows green lines all over the screen.
In 110Hz UFO test without background is fine, but with the star background it has green lines at the bakcground
In 96Hz all is fine.

Does this mean that my Monitor only capable of 96Hz?
Has anyone tested the monitor with R9 295X2?
Does this have something to do with the connection used? (DL DVI-D opposed to Mini DP)
Or maybe this has something to do with the drivers, or anything else?

I need you help on this matter.

Thanks.

Regards,

Yuri

Yes, I think 96 Hz is probably plenty - you are a correct that it takes a lot of GPU power to push 120 FPS at 1440p. For me, 96Hz is so much better than 60 Hz I don't even care about 120.
