I've come to the sad realization that the reason this display looks so crappy despite all the profiles I try is due to being at 96hz. Reset it to stock and it's much more pleasant to look at, though the mouse movement looks like crap. There really isn't a way to have it all ATM.

And that is the reason mine is at 60hz unless I am gaming .It really looks much better at 60hz no matter the color profile you use..

Speaking of color profiles that excellent review links to another set of ICC instructions as well. I don't agree it looks like crap but I will have to spend some more time at 60Hz and compare.

+Price (300-400$)
+Amazing color presets..the second best of all the 2560x1440 monitors I have reviewed
+High native contrast (1,000:1)
+Deep blacks for a PLS/IPS panel
+Nearly neglible input lag
+Pixel response times (ghosting) on par with the Asus PB278Q & Samsung S27A850D
+Calibrated Color Accuracy: The second best of all the 2560x1440 monitors I have reviewed
-Glossy bezel and matte coating do not jive
-Back-light bleeding
-Extended color space=slight color over-saturation (125% print test sRGB color space coverage)
-Panel not properly assembled, my CrossOver 2720MDP which has the same bezel is fine
-Pixel response times are slightly slower than the CrossOver 2720MDP and ViewSonic VP2770's
-Lack of warranty

Oh that one, yeah i tried the 120hz profile, colour wise it looks good but idk, still something off about my screen, like it's way too dark still but he says to turn the brightness down?

Is there a way to reset what brightness you've set the monitor on, without the on screen display for it i can't tell what i've put it on since i was mucking around with it when i first got it and can't remember how many clicks i did or what i was clicking :/

Go all the way down by just holding it till the screen goes completely dark, then count the amount of times you click it going up in brightness. Also if none of the profiles work for you try this http://www.lagom.nl/lcd-test/ it is the best thing aside from getting a color profile tool.

Hi,

can someone help me with overclocking using CRU using the "back porch" method

I followed all the instructions. I have the nvidia drivers patched. Disabled "include block extension" and cleared all the custom profiles using NVCP.

But when I set custom resolutions and refresh rates in CRU and restart. It doesn't show up in NVCP.

Thank you
