144hz monitor EDID overrides

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Can the 144hz monitor be overridden with an EDID to make it go to 165hz or even 200hz's? How would the one be able to accomplish this task to increase his/her frame rate to get this kind of stability?

Acer GN246HL monitor 24" 144hz to be exact, but the strobe light utility by TOASTYX for 120hz motion clarity worked "OK" only, not really that great, worth a shot, but only for overlcocking a TV next, mabey, help on overclocking a Samsung 60hz TV to 120hz's will the response time be any less??

thanks,

Truely,

Teknudox

Only if the monitor firmware will accept those timings.
Most panels can easily go above 144hz. It's the firmware that limits it.

Asus VG248QE can run at 150hz at 1280x720 or 1280x1024 with certain custom timings.
Benq XL2720Z/XL2420Z/various other Benq monitors are hardware locked to 145hz and won't go 1 hz higher.

X-Star DP2414 144Hz / QNIX QX2414 will overclock usually between 180-240hz, with a Vertical Total value of 1098, however in some cases, increasing the VT up to 1350 has worked also.

This is the exact same monitor panel used in the Asus VG248QE, Benq XL24 series, etc (note : the LG 24GM77 has the EXACT same panel, it's not a true 8 bit panel). But the firmwares in these other monitors limit the max refresh rate completely.
