He just did the procedure I asked about this morning. What I was looking for was a way to create a still picture interval during which a strobed backlight could operate. But, as a happy accident, apparently this also makes the gamma shift go away. I wouldn't have been surprised if the gamma shift had been reduced at 90Hz (it's still 90Hz after all, even with a high pixel clock), but to have it happen at 120Hz surprises me. Still, if it works, it works.

I am concerned that there might be some frame dropping going on, but I won't be able to check it out myself until my monitor gets here. /me rubs cheetah blood on the DHL guy

Hmm I have no idea what you are talking about, but I hope it works and that easy instructions are created for people like me.

On another note, I am still waiting for my delivery of the monitor as well axesmiley.png

Can you please tell us exactly how he did it?

Well, I just received my monitor.

Good News: no dead pixels

Bad news: horrible back light bleed. (removing 2 middle screws did nothing)



So since the simple removal of 2 middle screws did not work, would I need to detach the monitor and do the tape mod?

This was all fluffy sheap

I downloaded CRU, made a custom profile 96hz at 2560x1440 restarted my computer and it was at 96hz(according to cru and ac3)
Then I increased my vertical pixel total using to 1850 by editing my custom profile, Restarted my comp and OMG it was 96hz with a comparably bright screen to 60hz(a little darker) I checked again in ac3 and it said 120 hz was the max my monitor could do. I then went crazy and tried 2000 vert, again my brightness went up even more then I tried 120hz and it worked! My monitor is a beast before and does 133 hz without lines 144 does not work. THANK FLUFFY HE NEEDS A STATUE

Here are the revised detailed instructions:

1) Fire up ToastyX CRU or whatever you use for custom timings. (get CRU here: http://www.monitortests.com/forum/Thread-Custom-Resolution-Utility-CRU)
2) You should probably create a new detailed resolution definition to experiment with for this.
3) Set the new definition's refresh rate to your choice of 120Hz or 90Hz (Try 120Hz first if your monitor is known to work at that rate). I'd still be interested in 90Hz results for people that don't get good results at 120Hz. Keep the 1440 vertical resolution, but slowly increase the total vertical rows. Depending on your tool, this is either the "back porch," "blanking interval," or the "total lines" or "total rows."
4) Increase the vertical rows or back porch by 75-100.
5) Use your video control panel to make sure your monitor is using the custom video mode you just defined.
6) Repeat steps 4 and 5 until the rows are "enough." If you're setting total lines, aim for about 1850-1950 total lines. If you're setting the blanking interval or back porch, you want about 400-500. At 90Hz, this is roughly the same pixel clock* as normal timings@120Hz. At 120Hz, this is some absurdly fast timing that I have to see to believe, heh. Feild Scarecrow reported 2000 total lines @120Hz.
7) Let us know how it goes, how many lines you reached, what video card and monitor (QNIX vs X-Star) you have and if your picture quality improved, got worse, or stayed the same.
8) If your monitor freaks out, it's unlikely it will be damaged, but you might need to reboot to safe mode or have a second connected monitor to reset your settings.

If you need more than that you'll have to ask Scarecrow, since he was the one that actually did it! But I don't think he did anything else besides what is here.

* basically, the signal bandwidth going over the DVI connection

Don't you have to reboot before you change the lines again ?

Damn ya a lot. Really bright. Can't believe the screws did nothing but that's a lot on the top too. Yep tape (which you might already be doing as I type this).

I am trying to but it is very difficult to take off the cover. Using a small flathead, i can take off the bottom but the sides are impossible...
