SUCCESS: qnix 2414led -- Overclocked to 220 Hz!

just letting ppl know.

it was the cheapest qnix qx2414 144hz bypass model. only dvi, no on screen menus etc.

never done any oc before, but its been stable 220hz all day, no frameskip that i can notice with a slowmo cam. 240hz causes a white screen after a few mintues.

im wondering if its OK to leave it at 220hz all the time?

edit: heres a frameskip pic, seems good i guess

You should be fine, most of the time it just crashes when it gets too hot or pushed too far. I've never killed a monitor pushing it to it's limits.

You might be better off giving us the timings aswell. You might be able to get higher clock or a more stable and less unsaturated colours by turning down the VT and HT

those auto timings are pretty good, they are actually the same as 144hz 1080p G-Sync.

the "Total pixels" on both Horizontal and Vertical. You can lower them to save bandwidth. You'll will have to lower the Front and Sync because they add up to equal the total.

Start by lowering the "Vertical Total" by 1 and testing every time. If you ever get low enough you might need to set front and sync on vertical to 1.

After you find that limit set the horizontal front and sync to a lower value (8 and 10 for example) and start lowering the total pixels for the vertical by 5 till it doesn't work.

you will find your pixel clock lowering every time you lower your VT/HT, this will free up more bandwidth for overclocking or just less stress on the chip.

wow big thanks

got everything as low as it would possibly go, anything lower is blurry
couldn't get any more hz but less stress is good

Wow, that's very tiny blanking intervals.

You're already using more than 95% of your dotclock bandwidth with active on-screen pixels, so you won't be able to go much beyond 220Hz via blanking-interval-reduction.

I think you've hit your limits already if 240Hz is not stable.

220Hz is a very good overclock!

(NOTE: If you play any 60fps YouTubes, you might want to back down to 180Hz for smoother video playback though -- 180 is divisible by 60)

yeah im totally happy with it, paid like 170$ for this thing but i see the newer versions are a little more expensive

subtle but noticeable gain especially with rapid movements

thanks for the help yall!
