I'm looking into making a Lightboost-style backlight mod for this monitor, but I'd like to request some help with research to see what results people are getting with overclocks. Essentially, for this to work, it's important that the panel be able to handle a very long blanking interval, and to do it without getting super dim. This mod would yield something in the 85-96Hz range but with 120Hz pixel clock. The extra clock would be used for a large blanking interval, during which the backlight would illuminate. This would make motion much less blurry, although it still wouldn't be as good as the TN Lightboost monitors, due to the panel simply being slower. There would be a three-way tradeoff between flicker, blur, and refresh rate.

Here's what I would like, if possible:
1) Fire up Toasty CRU or whatever you use for custom timings.
2) Set to 90Hz. 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."
3) Increase the vertical rows or back porch by 75-100 at a time. If you're setting total lines, increase up until about 1900-1950 total lines. If you're setting the blanking interval or back porch, you want about 500. Either of these are roughly the same pixel clock as normal blanking @120Hz.
4) Report if the monitor freaks out, if you get the same brightness/color shift that normally happens in the 120Hz range or if the color quality stayed good, how high of a vertical row setting you reached, what your top normal overclock is, and whether you have a QNIX or X-Star monitor.
5) 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.

Has anyone had any success with this?

Shame - though I'm not even sure if it's worth overclocking my monitor. I don't game (on PC), mostly surf the web and watch anime...

Reckon I'd notice much difference between 60Hz and even 96Hz for that use? I am upgrading from a cheap 1080p TN 60Hz monitor, so I'm expecting this to blow me away even if I don't overclock it.

I wouldn't oc in your case. It will only throw off the monitors gamma and uniformity, aka it will make it look worse. Possibly one of the 96Hz ICC (color calibration) profiles can help with that

No reason to oc as it looks the best at 60hz..unless you fame then use 120..

120Hz would be pretty pointless for me gaming anyway - my HD7770 aint gonna run even half that :/

How far can a calibration profile correct the problems caused by OCing? I saw another thread where someone's thinking of sending theirs around (if you pay P&P) and thought I could just use that and leave it running at 120Hz - which would be great for watching 24fps video.

Or I could just OC to 72Hz - not enough to affect picture quality much, but enough to make videos much more smooth.

Honestly though, the thing I'm looking forward to most is no reflections - and using my computer with the curtains open xD and then the extra real estate, pixel density, PLS colours...

It can help with the gamma and brightness issues, but it will do nothing for the uniformity changes that can occur.

Haha. Well now I can push everything at high fps at 1440.I played a little Bioshock earlier, varied between 120-200 fps which was awesome.

how's the frame latency? Are u using RadeonPro?
