I see. shouldn't you be able to see higher refresh rates even if your monitor don't support it? 80hz is nice but the majority of of qnix and x-star owners are managing 96hz at least. I will try on a nvidia with official drivers and see if I get anything better.

I've always had weird luck with the CCC and the drivers. Def try a Nvidia card, what card is it? And also is there an option to show unsupported refresh rates in CCC (just taking a guess) ?

I've read if your monitor cannot handle the overclock you will get a black screen, and if you get static lines its prob the GPU or the cable. Not sure about why the higher than 80hz are not showing at all though. I'm sure there is a CCC guru that will pop in at any moment.. smile.gif

Anyone got any favourite 1440 wallpapers? Been on a few sites, but none of the wallpapers seem "sharp" just big actual pictures. I was looking at something like ocean or space.

I am using Windows 8.1 RTM and ATI Radeon HD 4850. However there is no official Catalyst drivers for the HD 4000 series anymore (Thanks ATI). I had to use a modded 12.11 BETA Catalyst driver.
After a long round of installing and un-installing drivers I finally managed to get CCC loaded and the drivers recognized.

I've patched the drivers with the ATI patcher just fine but the CRU have mixed results. I only managed to get CRU to show 80hz on CCC and the windows resolution panel. However if I add anything above 80hz it wont show up at all.

Does that mean that it is as far as it goes in terms of overclocking? I assumed that you could get higher frequencies to at least show up even if the monitor rejected the refresh rate.

Have I missed something in the process?

Are you adding other custom resolutions? Like 2650x1080? cuz i found that if you have mixed resolutions with different refresh rates, only 1 of them will show up. For example

2560x1440@120hz
2560x1080@144hz - when you change to this resolution, you only see the 120hz selectable 144hz is gone - until i make a 1440@144hz setting.

Other than that you should have at least have them selectable, it may not work, but it should be selectable. I know ive had up to 144hz in CRU and it shows up as a selectable resolution.

I suggest 4walled.org

Maybe is the fact I have a weird combination of things. My CCC and drivers are from a older 12.11 BETA version since is the only drivers I managed to install on my windows 8.1 machine. The fact that there will be no more CCC drivers in windows 8.1 for ATI HD 4000 series doesn't help.

No. I am adding only supported resolutions (2560x1440). I've managed to get both windows and CCC to show up to 84hz( LCD Reduced) which the monitor supports. anything above 2560x1440@84hz simply don't show up anywhere after I restart.

That's what is bugging me. they don't show up at all regardless whether my monitor support it or not. From which version of CCC gives you the choice to display EDID not supported on the resolution list?

Should I start considering a better cable even though I think is unlikely the case?

Most of the ones I found seemed to be smaller images upscaled (badly) to 1440p. I just found an image I liked, found the original (on deviantart) and upscaled it myself (with photoshop) to 1440p. I'd suggest doing the same unless you can find something where the original is truly 1440p (or above).
