post #2211 of 25893
Ok I took off the cover but I don't know how to detach the screen from the assembly itself since the backlight and the screen seem to be one assembly. I can't seem to find it on the youtube as well. Does anyone have some pictures/other links?

I did, if you restart the software it reads reboot required after changing settings

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
Can you like print screen or something?You might as well be speaking spanish as i have no idea what you are talking about..

Am I right in thinking max brightness gets rid of the pwm eye strain?

These should not be PWM..

Thought you had to hunt around to find displays without that, like how they talk it up here as a special thing - http://www.overclock.net/t/1335088/viewsonic-vp2770-2560x1440-semi-glossy-pls-club

The only 27in ips monitor I know that uses it is the Asus PB278Q

No offense intended but if you cannot figure out ANYTHING he just posted you might want to read a LOT more before overclocking anything.

Here are the revised detailed instructions, with screenshots smile.gif

1) Fire up ToastyX CRU. (get CRU here: http://www.monitortests.com/forum/Thread-Custom-Resolution-Utility-CRU)
2) If you have more than one monitor, make sure you have the right one selected in the dropdown. Edit the existing detailed resolution, which should be 2560x1440x60. Then push the 'copy' button to copy the timings. Your numbers will be different from mine because I'm making the screenshots on a different kind of monitor.

3) If you have any established or standard resolutions, other than 640x480x60, you can go ahead and uncheck/delete them. Then add a new detailed resolution.

4) Paste the timings into the new resolution. Then, set the refresh rate to 120Hz (or 90Hz if you think your monitor can't do 120).

5) Edit the back porch to be a larger number. The target is 500, which I think is more likely to work at 90Hz. Still, I'm interested in knowing how good the results are at either refresh rate.

6) Click 'OK' to everything and reboot.
7) Use your video control panel to set your monitor to the new custom video mode and see how it goes.
8) Repeat steps 5-7 until you have "enough." At 90Hz, 500 back porch is about the same pixel clock as normal timings@120Hz. At 120Hz, this is very very fast. Feild Scarecrow reported 2000 total lines @120Hz (about the equivalent of a 550 back porch). You should probably increase by about 100 rows at a time if you are doing 120Hz, but at 90Hz you probably don't have to bother if you have already done 120Hz with ordinary timings.

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. 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.

You should probably increase by about 100 rows at a time if you are doing 120Hz, but at 90Hz you probably don't have to bother if you have already done 120Hz without the long blanking.

All i have to say is awesome biggrin.gif
