Done this as well. Didn't work sadsmiley.gif

I think your order of operations isn't right? You shouldn't be installing fresh drivers after using CRU to create (custom) native resolutions.

1) Start from a clean slate, uninstall all drivers, reboot, reinstall new drivers, reboot.

2) Go into the pixel clock patcher folder and run nvlddmkm-patcher.exe. You only need to run the full patcher with 5xx series GPUs or if you have SLI. Since you have 7-series GPU and no SLI you can just run the normal patcher. Then REBOOT.

3) After reboot go into the CRU folder and run CRU.
- In the dropdown at the top make sure the right monitor is selected. It should be the "active" monitor.
- Highlight the resolution listed under "Detailed resolutions."
- Hit the "Edit" button below the box. This will pop up a new window.
- In the new window hit "Copy." Then hit "OK" to close the window.
- Hit the button "Add" under the 'Detailed resolutions" box. This will pop up a new window. Hit "Paste" to populate the screen. Then go down to the area in this screen that says "Refresh rate:' and change it from whatever it is (59.5 or 60.0) to 120. Then hit "OK" to close the window.
- Move the new custom resolution that you created to the top of the list of resolutions under "Detailed resolutions."
- Make sure that "Include extension block" is unchecked.
- Hit OK and CRU will add this new "custom resolution" to your Nvidia drivers.
REBOOT.

4) Once you're rebooted, right click on your desktop (or however you want to do it) to go to NVIDIA Control Panel.
- Go to "Change resolution"
- Under PC you should see godmon listed as 2560 x 1440 (native). It should be highlighted.
- CRU (despite the name, Custom Resolution Tool) does not add "custom resolutions" to NVIDIA Control Panel. It makes your drivers think that whatever resolutions you created are native.
- There's a dropdown next to the monitor labeled "Refresh rate:" You should be able to select 120Hz from this dropdown now.

You can tighten up your timings to lower your pixel clock at 120Hz. Lots of people in the thread have gone over this.

Thanks again. Worked like a charm. I did these first time but I'm not sure what was wrong. Now everything seems great.

Hey guys, I have two GTX 660s and the sli option disappeared. SLI was working fine before the nvidia 331.82 patch. I have a sudden feeling it has to do with the CRU and pixel clock patch. I reset all the settings using the appropriate programs for CRU and pixel clock patch after I installed the latest nvidia drivers, but the sli option disappeared. I also have Nvidia Geforce Experience, the sli bridge is connected, and I'm using a 27 inch Qnix 1440p. Does anyone know a fix? Thanks for reading

So, is it safe to OC my x-star to 120hz with a 125v power cord? Used a normal cord with the brick that has 240v max.

Also, what happens to your monitor if you overdue it?wheee.gif

Speaking of the brick for the QNIX, is it perfectly safe voltage for people like me who live in the US?

Yup you're totally fine using a normal power cord with the brick, and the brick works perfectly fine in the US.

FedEx custom charges on Korean X-Star DP2710 shipped to USA.

I live in Portland, Oregon USA.

On Nov 19, 2013 around 5 pm Seoul, South Korea time, I ordered two X-Star DP2710 2560x1440 Samsung PLS Panel Matte Monitors (eBay item #330932578190) from dream-seller for $279 each.

About 3 hours ago, I received an email from dream-seller saying:
“The shipping time takes about 5-7 business days or longer depending on how long it takes to clear customs.
Please note that Fed ex will either bill you or ask you to pay a bill.
This bill is not the shipping fee, it is the customs that they paid in advance when picking it up at the customs.”

I was not aware of a customs charge and have not been told what it would be, which troubles me.

Can anyone provide me information on this and the practices of other sellers?

Your input voltage of your power supply has nothing to do with overclocking the monitor what so ever. If there is only 120Vac output at your household wall outlet the power supply will use 120Vac and no greater. Now if you have 220Vac wired to an outlet like say your stove, you can also plug in the power supply to that as well. I would then suggest getting larger gauge. The normal operating input range is typically 100Vac ~ 240Vac. The standard power cord gauge will be fine also since its rated properly. The main thing you have to worry about is the current draw of the monitor and wattage. I was under the assumption that when "overclocking your monitor" your gpu is now sending 120Hz signal to the input of the video board then sending the data signal to the panels logic board. This will increase the load on the chip and input panel which then can display lines or artifacts simply because the monitor can't handle the data at 120Hz. So you aren't really overclocking the chip at all.

110~240Vac

Everyone should just bypass the voltage inverter and run the 12v power directly off the power supply wink.gif
