Upon the advice of Falkentyne, I increased the core voltage by 25mv and that fully solved my black screen problem on the desktop/web browsing use. I actually tested it with my original DP cable included with the box and that performed perfectly too. At least I have a spare DP cable now tongue.gif

Thanks to everyone for their help, and I hope this post will help others who have a similar problem.

TLDR - To fix the intermittent black screen issue on the 390X/XL2730Z combo, simply increase core voltage by +25mv (temperatures unaffected).

Dave ,

Can you test your monitor like me ? If you have a littl free time smile.gif)

Thanks

Sure:



In real life, the blacks on this monitor are amazing to my eye. The image captured by the camera looks washed out in comparison, though I'm no expert in photography settings tongue.gif

Mine looks pretty average I think? It looks different to my eye than with the camera. I don't game in a dark room, so maybe my colors are a little bright.

"clear user" in the advanced factory menu fixed the stuck at 60Hz problem for me.

So my original had 1 dead pixel in the bottom left. Got a replacement and that had 3 dead ones in the top right. Decided to send that one back and stick with the original until the next replacement came in... Got my 3rd one in and guess what?

They're kind of hard to make out with my crummy cell phone pics (especially #3), but they're there for sure... Have to say, I'm really disappointed. Not sure whether to stick with my original one with a dead pixel or just get a refund and take my business elsewhere. Real shame that such a reputable company like BenQ decided to go with such shoddy panels.

Hi guys. Just got the XL2730z for christmas, because i was looking forward to experience the Freesync, and also wanted to play CS GO at 144mhz. My brother has a 2720z and said the difference was quite evident.

The problem is when i try to play CS GO in Deathmatches or Casual, the FPS vary from 80 to 140, and its not fluid as it should. I tried with, and without freesync (of course with DP connection, and 144mhz chosen on windows). Dumb down the ingame video settings to the minimum, and still almost the same FPS's everytime.

My GPU is a MSI R9 390, and my CPU although not that powerful, is a Phenom II X6 1055t, which i would assume, would be more than enough to have FPS's >144 in CS GO with very low settings.

Another big diference i saw ingame with the new monitor, is that when i access video settings, it hangs for a few seconds, sometimes gets a black screen for 1 or 2 seconds. It also happens when i apply any new change. I hear the click sound repeating itself a few times, then after a few seconds, its ok....

Any thoughts?

thanxs in advance,
Luís

There should be no difference in the XL2730Z vs the XL2720Z in Counter-strike besides the higher resolution; both monitors can easily maintain 144 hz/144 fps at all times at their native refresh rates in CS:Go. My XL2720Z can run 115 hz at 2560x1440 so I'll do a quick CS:Go run later and check the FPS, but keep in mind I do NOT play CS at all, so not only am I horrible at this game, I also can't help directly with FPS problems.

the r9 390 should be faster than a 290x, so you need to get the monitor out of the picture before you troubleshoot resolution/video card related FPS problem. You can do this by setting a very low resolution at 144hz and see if the FPS still drops.

Try running 1024x768@144 or 1280x1024@144hz in CS:Go and see if the FPS is still dropping into the 80's. If it does, then the video card and monitor are not the issue, and it's something else. You definitely should not be getting 80 FPS with that video card with details set to low. Why are you running such a powerful video card with such a horrible CPU, anyway?

I tried everything, and at a very low resolution at 144hz it didnt surpassed 144 fps. It goes from 110 to 140'ish.

Also tried to run 1280*1024 to no great difference also... I also have a problem that whenever i go out of the native resolution, i got blurry fonts allover.

As for the horrible CPU smile.gif : Whenever i have the money i will upgrade it. GPU and Monitor were gifts.

Even with my CPU being below my GPU and monitor, it should be more than enough to >144 FPS in CS GO with very low settings, dont you think?

Lololololol. That CPU is definitely not what I would call horrible. Though something is definitely wrong if you cant hit 144hz at such a low res on the monitor.

Is the cpu overclocked? Thats should help provided you have a decent mobo and cooler.

What setup does your brother have and can yall swap monitors to see if it is just an issue with your pc and not thw monitor?

The CPU is not overclocked. im not an expert, and i think i lack the skills to go to the bios and do it. I dont think i have a cooler, and dont know what a mobo is (only by googling it smile.gif )
i've been there, saw the AI tweaker thingy but wouldn't mess with it.

If i have to buy a cooler, ill go the extra mile and get a new CPU if it is really neded.

And i have a 650w PSU bronze, and with a R9 390 onboard i think i could go over my head. Do you think it could make a great difference?

And i will try go to my brothers to see if it makes a difference.
