I just did the same method with CRU and 120hz and it seems to have worked. If I don't see any artifacts, does that mean I'm good to go? Do I need to do anything else ? I see a lot of people tweaking their setting and I was even looking into the front porch method so It can't be as easy as setting the refresh rate to 120HZ in CRU and hitting save, right?

I verified the refresh rate using the UFO Test in my browser and it showed 120hz.

Everything has been working flawless for about 5 days that I noticed, GPU intensive games, web browsing, etc. I was playing a game Civ 5 last night and this one graphic comes up every in-game year and I noticed a staticy vertical line, not horizontal like last time, it was in a quick info box for the game, the info box goes away and everything seems fine again. And its only in the box and about an inch long, maybe the color has something to do with it? Either way, I down-clocked to 96hz and the line was not there, so I figured it must be the hz.

Now I'm on 118hz with 452.54Mhz pixel clock down from 459.86mhz pixel clock. That vertical line is not there anymore, so I guess it worked. I could not get the pixel clock any lower without lines all over the screen on 120hz. I have not tried a different cable or a new GPU yet, just wanted to give people my experience. I dont use this monitor for movies so Im not concerned with keeping my hz in check for the pull-down effect.

This is my post from the other day.. I ended up changing DVI ports and it has been perfect since. So put your PC through the ringer, play GPU intensive games, etc. That line was the only artifact I had and I didnt notice it until about 5 days later. I also need to do the front porch method because just setting CRU to 120hz didnt work for me, I had about 12 horizontal lines on my W8 start screen originally.

thank you.

I know a couple users that have bought the Overlord OC PCB have been able to rig it up with the CrossOver LED-P (but it was not easy, it doesnt drop it like Catleaps or Shimians) - you might wanna visit their forums. Its around $150 for the PCB i believe.

Otherwise, almost postiive that CrossOver IPS's do not overclock past 66hz - they lack the required hardware.

About time they went up in price...I mean I'm not glad (even though I paid $317 in May) but it sorta defied logic that they hadn't.

Edit: Likely finally driven by recent tighter supply but still. Shimians and Crossovers etc were at least $400 like all last year and past until these PLS hit long after the initial "Catleap overclocking craze" (which were cheaper in their time).

Edit2: Just looked and the cheapest single input dvi Crossover is still $399.

Talk about bizarre.
Woke up this morning, and panicked for a moment thinking the LCD has been damaged/cracked somehow.

Turns out, there's a clear piece of glass over the LCD (I ordered glossy, so I was a little baffled; I didn't think anything was overlaid on the LCD)
and the cheap adhesive holding the glass up had failed, causing the glass to slip.

Took the bezel off, and removed the glass piece. Everything is A-OK now. Weird.

Sounds like you maybe you got a tempered glass unit instead?

Ok, so my monitor arrived 2 days earlier than expected and I am ECSTATIC! I can't find a single visible bad pixel anywhere, and absolutely no visible BLB! Accessorieswhole is the best! smile.gif
I'm busy for most of the day but later tonight I'll post the necessary bits to join the club and try to get some pics up in the next couple of days.

I haven't tried OC'ng yet, but I'll post and let you all know how it goes! Best 300 dollars ever spent! smile.gif

Which version did you go with? The Qnix or X-Star? And yes, I have to agree with you that this is the best $300 investment I ever made. OC'ed to 96HZ and I LOVE it. My new video card arrived today (GTX760 SC 4GB) and MAN does it really crank out the FPS in all my games. I might actually try 120HZ at some point, but I am really liking 96HZ atm.

Good luck with your new purchase and let us know how it turns out for ya.

Please, please, PLEASE stay FAR away from dream-seller.
Update:
Well, it appears I now have much more to worry about than my stupid screen burn. I was using the monitor last night, everything working fine. Then I went to bed and when I woke up it looked like this:






So far I've tried switching the monitor's DVI and power cables with the ones on my good monitor (the Qnix), rebooting the machine, and I've even disassembled and reassembled the entire monitor to no avail. I'll have to contact dream-seller for a replacement hopefully. I'll keep my fingers crossed.

That sucks....how long have you had that monitor, and what refresh rate were you going for?

I've had it about a week. It OCed to 120Hz, but I ran it at 60Hz for the past few days before this happened.
