[Official] BenQ XL2730Z Owner's Club - Page 64

post #631 of 837
I'm having something really strange happening.

I've had the BenQ XL2730Z for quite some time now, and I've come to learn every single quirk about it but I'm having something I can't explain and I hope someone here have an answer!

The XL2730Z have little overshot using the Premium AMA setting, the overshoot was so little in fact that it was unnoticeable, that is until now that I've upgraded from a R9 290 to a GTX 1070 on my ITX RIG.

After upgrading my GPU to the G1 1070 I'm getting huge amounts of overshoot on this monitor, and I mean HUGE amounts, I have to set the AMA to "High" instead of "Premium" and it still shows more overshot than what my R9 290 showed when using "Premium".

Why or how does this happen? is it related to FreeSync somehow? it really makes no sense how changing GPUs from AMD to Nvidia would increase or decrease the overshoot generated by the monitor.

If I swap my GPU back to my 290 the overshoot gets back to normal, so my question is... WTH?

How old is your 2730Z? I remember the very first units released had a bug with freesync where overdrive did not work at all so it didn't matter whether you set it to high or premium, the overdrive was still off entirely which is why you probably saw no overshoot. Now that you're using an nvidia card with no freesync you're able to notice even the small amount of overshoot it has on the high setting.

Could GPU drivers play a factor in this?

I checked when I bought it, which was one year after the whole Firmware Overdrive fiasco was fixed, besides with my AMD card I still had Overshoot, but it was very minimal, and everything would get blurry as soon as I disabled AMA.

Maybe? I'm using the latest Nvidia's Hotfix for Pascal DPC Latency version 368.95 don't know if it would change depending on drivers, I'm considering on selling my GTX 1070 G1 and getting a Fury non X because of this, performance jump wasn't as big as I expected coming from a 1280MHz R9 290, even when running @ 2100MHz/4608MHz memory, it certainly doesn't worth sacrificing FreeSync and adding Overshoot on top of it.

I will try the next Nvidia drivers when they are released and see if there's any improvement.

Why not a Fury X? I love mine dude thumb.gif
Think I am just tired of monster sized cards and this is a refreshing powerful little unit.

I already got one in my main RIG and I share your enthusiasm for it, but ironically this ITX case doesn't fit a Fury X frown.gif

The only radiator spot on this Cooler Master Elite 130 is already taken by a H80i.

Yep that rad was a pain which is why I opted to block it and make it extra small in regard to footprint. Full ATX case though.

I would call and ask to have this issue elevated immediately or your would like a full refund including them covering the shipping costs.

Just a thought but have you ruled out local power issues? I have terrible infrastructure on my street and we get a couple brownouts annually so every piece of hardware I own is plugged into battery backups with AVR's. I would test the panel on a friend's system at a different location and see if the issue occurs there as well....if you haven't already.

I hope you end up with a working one because I have tried every monitor almost 2560 x 1440 144hz both G and Free Sync and this is my favorite hands down.

Yeah, thats very frustrating. The BLB at the bottom is stronger than before and so i had to change the task bar color from black to dark grey, because the BLB was visible with black -,-

I have two options. BenQ send me a monitor without BLB or i try to give it back to amazon. But the biggest problem is, which alternative i could buy. The IPS monitors are too expensive and the QC is bad. The only IPS alternative is the EIZO, but he is damn expensive. The only TN alternative is the Dell, but he is also quite expensive.

Nope, thats no local power issue. One user on this board had also reported this problem some time ago as well as some users on other boards. I also saw this BLB on some Asus and Dell with the same TN panel.

Did you switch from DVI to displayport? Were the ports the SAME ON BOTH video cards?

I already tried all DPs on my G1 1070, they all show the same excess of overshoot, I also tried all DPs on my 290 and none showed this issue.

I haven't tried DVI or any other port because I didn't think it'd help and even if it did I'd have to sacrifice 1440p@144Hz, at that point I'm better off going back to AMD or buying a Gsync monitor.
