edit: i am using CRU to make my detailed resolution profiles at the moment. I am making them on the active dual dvi monitor and moving the resolution i created to the top. I also have include extension block unchecked. Why isn't it showing up on Nvidia control panel? Where am I supposed to look? The FAQ in the original thread doesn't really address any of these issues for me..

Good question. I am assuming you already patched your drivers, but if not that is probably it. Also the 326.xx drivers have issues with these monitors, so be sure to avoid those until the official WHQL release. If neither of those are it, I'd say uninstall Pixel OC, reinstall your drivers and use the latest ToastyX patch.

For some odd reason, my monitor goes nuts when playing NBA 2k13. Really blurry. Not in any other game I have tried so far. Anyone know a fix for this issue? Only happens when the monitor is overclocked. I tried LCD Reduced enabled in CRU and in CCC Reduce DVI Frequency.

So this is what I have done since the last post:

Set my refresh rate back to 60hz and set everything else back to normal
Uninstall my previous Nvidia drivers (they were pretty old, 310~ish
Reinstall latest WHQL drivers (320.49 i believe)
Reinstall ToastyX's latest Nvidia patch (1.2)

This time, I was able to make a custom resolution profile in Nvidia control panel and set the refresh rate to 96 hz, but the same thing happens: grey artifacts on boot that can only be solved by unplugging and replugging my DVI cable. Honestly, at this point it seems like a cable problem.

A side issue is the profiles created from CRU not showing up in Nvidia control panel no matter what I do. Tried unchecking include extension block and all but it seems like nothing gets my CRU custom resolutions to get picked up by Nvidia control panel.

long story short, nope. just buy a non perfect pixel monitor. it's been generally agreed upon that it's just a marketing gimmick. I just bought a monitor from accessorieswhole and there are no dead pixels and very minimal BLB. better off checking each seller's dead pixel policy.

Hey guys i have a bit of a problem with my second monitor affect the overclocked refresh rate on my QNIX. I clicked do not include extension block but it slows it down on the one side of my screen. Works perfectly when the second monitor is unplugged. Anyway of fixing this?

A little off topic question, but I just switched to Nvidia and cannot get Update Components and Geforce Experience to install. I have gone through many different fixes, and I've had no luck.

But then I remembered. I completely uninstalled all AMD drivers (and deleted all registry entries/hidden folders), but I forgot to disable the ATI pixel patcher and test mode before swapping cards and installing Nvidia drivers. I've turned test mode off, but I can't launch ATI pixel patcher since I don't have the card plugged in.

Is there any possibility that ATIpixel patcher is still enabled and is messing up my Nvidia drivers installation?

Yea basically with this monitor web surfing is difficult at first. It takes some getting used to. I initially tried changing the font sizes in FireFox but then pages were rendering all messed up -- e.g. some webpages have a predefined amount of space for text and making the font bigger messed up the layout.

I put the font sizes back to default and I find that increasing the zoom in FireFox works much better (ctrl + or ctrl mouse wheel).

I have a second 27" 1080p monitor next to the Qnix that I use for a lot of other stuff other than gaming.

I recommend bumping the font sizes in Windows Color and Appearance for all of the items at least by 1 if not more. Additionally you can adjust the actual size of various other vector GUI elements of windows which lets you put adjust them to a comfortable reading level and maintain native resolution sharpness.

Of course, the greater the size of things, the more screen real estate it takes up but honestly it's a balance between the two with more importance on readability since the resolution.

As for the browser, You can easily change the font size and default zoom sizes in Chrome. I'm sure Firefox has the same but I don't use it that often. Again, browser viewport real estate is affected by all of this but the majority of websites are still using a 900px width and 12px font size which is relatively tiny on this screen from a <2 foot distance.

I can't go past 85HZ then i either get green artifacts or the screen shakes in games. Think my GTX570 SLi setup can't keep up. I'm so ffar happy with 85Hz cause my GPU's can't even push any further. Also think the gtx570 and because it's in SLi is affecting my overclock ability.

It's dota 2 @ 1080p borderless window

someone already told me games work at 1080p without borders but I was wondering if browsing Firefox (desktop) works at 1080p without borders. Thnx though.

I used to have a u2713hm monitor that did 1080p desktop perfectly and fonts were much more readable.
1440p text is too small for my eyes. 1080p text looked sharper on the 2713hm compared to s2740L which is also 27" but 1080p native monitor. Its due to the physical pixels being smaller on 1440p monitors.
thnx.

1) Pushing a 1080p signal from the graphics card to rely on the monitor's scaler - this does not work as the monitor lacks a scaler. It also means: forget about non-PC sources which don't support 1440p.

2) Pushing a 1080p resolution (rendered) while using GPU scaling - this outputs a 1440p signal from the graphics card but everything is rendered at 1080p internally - this DOES work.

Hope this helps.

ok Scenario 2 is what I'm looking for. If someone could post a picture of Firefox or chrome with this site open in that scenario that would be perfect. Thnx
