[Official] Crossover 2795 QHD: PWM/Flicker Free Overclock-able Matte 1440p AH-IPS. - Page 108

post #1071 of 1999
Hello all! First post and after reading (a lot of reading) I think the 2795 qhd is my next monitor. I have a few questions. I have my main gaming rig with a 970 gtx MSI 100me and I also have a htpc next to it with an old 430gt (which should work displaying 2k. What I have been doing is unplugging my current monitor switching the dvi between the 2 systems. Since this Crossover only has 1 dvi input, I don't want to be plugging in and out all the time.

1.Can I simply buy a dvi switcher to go back and forth between computers or will that mess something up? Something like this? http://www.amazon.com/Goobay-Out-Manual-DVI-Switch/dp/B000OGYFSI/ref=sr_1_10?s=pc&ie=UTF8&qid=1444415087&sr=1-10&keywords=dvi+switch

2. Will a 1080p movie look much worse on this than a native 1080p monitor if I stretch it to fill the screen?

3. I am looking at this listing and it seems like this is a sale price.
http://www.ebay.com/itm/Perfect-Pixel-CROSSOVER-2795-QHD-AHIPS-27-LED-2560X1440-100Hz-LG-IPS-Monitor-/221902610837?hash=item33aa6d2195

It ends today so I am going to have to really talk my wife into this quickly. Does this look legit? It's a pixel perfect and it is the 2795 that can overclock...

4. Last, this kind of goes along with question 1, does the overclocking all happen with the monitor or is it from the video card? In other words, if the switch idea works, will the monitor stay at say, 75Hz when I switch to the computer that has the 430gt or does it solely depend on the video card running it?

Thanks in advance and I'm glad to be here. Lots of great info and nice people.

got nothing for question 1 or 2.

3. Do IT!! Your getting it $30 cheaper than mine that I just got last week. Everything on that posting looks right. Now I'm thinking about buying my second!

4. The over clocking happens from the computer and doesn't stay with the monitor. It's whatever the computer/GPU is told to output to that monitor. yiu would need to OC the monitor on both computers and hopefully when you switch back and forth it will recognize the monitor and automatically default to the right refresh rate. Not sure if it will or not.

Thank you for the help! Yeah, I don't know if that old 430gt can handle any overclocking but I'm not familiar with refresh rate ocing, just clock and memory speeds but it's worth a shot. Little scary ordering something so far away but from what I have been watching, they are packed pretty good and the seller would be out a lot of money too. I just checked the listing again and it does actually list the 430gt so I feel even better about it. I am just dreading the conversation with my wife. "What is wrong with your screen now?!?!" "It's the same size!?" It's coming from Korea!?!?" rolleyes.gif

Overclocking a monitor isn't really putting stress on your graphics card. If you use the nvidia control panel, over clocking your monitor is as simple as creating a custom resolution and putting in whatever refresh rate you want to try out. Youll be fine with the 430 GT

YEEE HAWW! Just pulled the trigger. thumb.gif I will have to go back and read up on all this overclocking and frame skipping stuff. I saw that they make a 32" Qnix for the same price and I almost jumped on it till I read the reviews. It really does seem like this is a magical monitor; over clockable, decent response, really good viewing angles all for around $300. Can't wait for it to arrive and finish Arkham Knight and go back to some older games.

Glad the wifey approved! Hopefully she'll appreciate 100hz-120hz gaming as much as you.

Haven't checked this thread in quite some time and am curious with a few things. I don't game much, when playing BF4 and the new Star Wars beta full screen never goes full screen! Windowed border-less works but full screen will always show windowed. Does this happen to anyone else?

Also is there a poplar ICC profile being used or are most just using the settings that came with?

I've had this monitor for several months now and love it so much. I have a 1080p screen next to it and I haven't dragged a window on it in months because of how terrible it looks compared to this one LOL. Some back light bleed when screen is all black on the top a bit but can't notice it on anything else.

You need to enable GPU scaling and set it to fullscreen with your video card drivers. FWIW I had some problems with AMD drivers on that for some reason.

I was giving that a shot before. I have a GTX 970 and under Adjust desktop size and position I have my resolution set and I selected the scaling mode to "Full-screen", tried "Aspect Ratio" as well and nothing in game. Override the scaling mode set by games and programs is also checked.

Did you make sure to select 'GPU' instead of 'Display'?


Just to be clear for this to work well in games (custom resolutions and such... I like 16:10 a fair bit for CS:GO), you need to use CRU for the games to recognise the resolutions you want to run at and at the right refresh rates... then you need to set scaling to use the GPU and set it to fullscreen to stretch it out without borders.
