As they said in your other thread, try another cable and mess with timings. All of these monitors are one giant lottery and gamble, so it's a matter of trying different stuff. If all else fails, it's a relatively cheap WQHD monitor that works perfectly at 60hz that you could probably sell to someone else and then try another one. smile.gif

As I said in my thread, I don't own another cable, and change the timings to what? Everyone says change timings... change them to what?

If you had a nasty cough and the doctor said you should take some cough syrup but you didn't own any, would you just suffer or go out and buy some cough syrup? rolleyes.gif

The timing changes will probably not help (and possibly hurt for all I know), but when you create a custom resolution via CRU or the nVidia panel, there are a ton of text boxes for front porch, sync width, etc. Try changing some of those by a small amount to see if it makes a difference.

OK you don't have another cable......well that is a problem and could be the whole problem but we don't know that until you try another. This is kinda like we are offering you a method to try and fix it and all you are saying is no.

As for the timings, you need to read and find out what will work better or worse. You don't want to start changing things without having an idea of what you are doing. Try LCD reduced for starters and if that does not help you will simply have to read up on the effects of timings. This thread has a LOAD of good info just search "timings". Also go to the catleap club and the downsampling threads.

You can't just keep claiming no help sorry

+1 love the metaphor.

That and people need to realize these monitors aren't guaranteed anything except bone stock.

That is the truth. The one i have is awesome(can go as high as 152hz) but the one my cousin got can only do 102hz even with every little tweak i did to mine.

Another point to put this in perspective is that if you were not so reluctant to even try another cable it has been known that certain video cards overclock better. For example i have 2 GTX570s and the bottom card can overclock 5hz further than the top. Also on that bottom card the lower port does 3hz better than the top port. I also have a GTX660 and it overclocks better than them all. There are several variables here and any one of them could be causing that line(if it is not just the monitor). You need to get another cable to even start troubleshooting.

Not to sound like a jerk or anything but I feel like I'm being ganged up on so....

For the 6 posts dogging me about me not trying another cable... Especially the doctor metaphor. 1) you're not a doctor 2) you are giving me little confidence you (or anyone else suggesting to try another cable) that you have any idea whether it would even have any effect 3) am I to just buy a $15 cable on a whim from some person on the internet who says "maybe try one?". If there was some write up somewhere that said "Yes if you have this issue, a different cable is likely to solve your problem, or past anecdotal evidence shows it may work". Your advice is akin to: "did you try power cycling it"

I wasn't expecting it to, all I've been asking iswhat this thing is, if there is a possible fix, and if not, will I damage my monitor overclocking at 120hz?

Okay lets break this down. You have a problem, well you need to troubleshoot what the problem is. There are several primary variables to consider:

1. the monitor itself, you can't know this until you try everything else. that is pretty much it since this situation is not a known issues and has not been determined to be one thing or another
2. THE CABLE this is literally one of the cheapest pieces to troubleshoot. Yes you will likely need to buy one to see if it is causing it. Sorry man but fixing things sometimes costs money. I have seen poor cables cause ALL kinds of issues.
3. The port on your video card. If you have more than one try another. Otherwise you are talking hardcore troubleshooting and trying a whole other video card
4. the video card itself ^
5. Drivers, although i think this is unlikely it is possible
6. POWER. i also think this is unlikely but you want to try moving the power cable to a different outlet and maybe using a different cable off the power unit.

You are not getting ganged up on. We are trying to help you and your responses have been completely unresponsive to anyone's help. You simply have giving everyone this feel of "your answer was not good enough" and multiple people responding this way is not a bullying thing. Trust me i have better things to do.

If you want a completely free, simple and drop dead 100% guaranteed test sorry man your out of luck.

EDIT: there has never to date been any reported long term side effects from overclocking. So with that being said even with this "line" NO-ONE knows because there has been NO reports.
