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 without the long blanking.

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.
Thank you sir..I just needed to know which value you were changing..thumb.gif

Well if that was the case then fine(RESPECT) however you said he was speaking spanish to you which paints a very clearly different picture. Sorry you took offense after i said NO offense.

And calling people a kid is just ridiculous just saying wink.gif

Just wanted to report back about my monitor. Still extremely satisfied. Nothing has gone wrong and I have absolutely zero regrets about anything. If you are on the fence you should definitely buy one!

Great to hear thumb.gif How high did you overclock? Any troubles getting there?

I haven't overclocked yet. Only running a 7950 so I don't think overclocking would really do all that much for me. Who knows though, might try it out one day however. thumb.gif

I'm going to buy a calibration tool. Whilst brightness and contrast is fine for all the ICC profiles the rgb hue, saturation and balance is far of neutral for my monitor.

Aaaaaahhh, I did it just purchased the Qnix from Hulustar, omg omg omg. I can't believe I just did that. I hope everything goes well.

I did go for the glossy one. Tested it out yesterday with my macbook and had no problems. My blinds are closed most of the time when I'm on my computer so. I just love the glossy effect, makes everthing even more pretty.

Now I'm gonna search for a wallmount, should I take one that I can move or just plane on the wall?

I tried it at 120hz and got green lines..I was able to do 90hz at 500 back porch settings and the color was the same as when i use 120hz..So for me it did nothing.But i probably did it wrong since i have no idea what i am doing..doh.gif

Follow up question about the wallmount. I want it to be slim on the wall like a painting. The screen will be big enough so I don't think I will need to pull it closer to me.

So here's 4 mounts I'm considering

1. http://en.newstar.eu/products/artikeldetails/?artdetail=FPMA-W110&webgroupfilter=26&alstart=0

2. http://en.newstar.eu/products/artikeldetails/?artdetail=FPMA-W25&webgroupfilter=26&alstart=0

3. http://en.newstar.eu/products/artikeldetails/?artdetail=FPMA-W50&webgroupfilter=26&alstart=0

4. http://en.newstar.eu/products/artikeldetails/?artdetail=FPMA-W815&webgroupfilter=26&alstart=0

The first 3 are fixed, can't move the monitor, the only difference I guess is that one is a few mm's more away from the wall.
The 4th one you can tilt/swivel and turn, but it's 9cm's from the wall.
