Okay I’ve tried first part , and everything seems blurry although coronas are pretty much gone , I think I need do cable to enable g-sync in 2’x part. I’ll post results . Thanks!

First of all i want to say thanks to all people who helped me with my issue to fix inverted ghosting on this monitor.
Also i want to write all steps that i followed , i know that im not only one who had this problem.
So:
1.First get rid of HDMI cable that u recieved with monitor,and buy DisplayPort cable.
2.Download newest NVIDIA driver that support G-sync on Freesync monitors. (417.71 and up)
3. Download CRU and put ur monitor to LCD Reduced with exect same refresh rate of monitor ( u can check on testufo:refresh rate) in my case was 239.760
4. Enable G-SYNC in NVIDIA control panel
5. Enjoy
And yes coronas are totally gone even on super fast response time.

Anyone having issues with CRU settings reverting back after reboot?

Did you maybe reinstall or upgrade your GPU driver? This will cause them to revert. But a reboot shouldn't do that.

In any event, you can export your custom EDID to a file and then import it again, so that you don't have to manually re-apply everything.

Hi Thanks for replying,

No, no upgrades or changes to my GPU funny thing is this morning I restarted my PC and the CRU settings are in place. Super weird behavior :)

Maybe you ran reset-all.exe instead of restart.exe by mistake? :P

This monitor is weird. I've been getting tons of overshoot just with Normal response time but when I enable Gsync Compatible with this monitor that fixes the overshoot issue and I feel like the motion clarity in games have increased as well. And now I can use the Super Fast setting with very minimal overshoot. All because I enabled Gsync Compatible setting. Strange stuff!

I'm not surprised that this happens --

Even in monitors without dynamic overdrive during VRR -- the manufacturer overdrive tuning that was applied to the monitor is often different in VRR mode than in non-VRR mode.

This is even for fixed full framerate motion, ghosting quality at max Hz can be different in VRR ON versus VRR OFF.

Gsync/FreeSync improve motion clarity on any monitor! On this monitor you notice it more, because it is awful out of the box without VRR. Still, even with VRR the motion clarity isn´t that great and the overdrive is always changing, just by a colour config tweaking. Example: If you use Cool profile it can mess the overdrive immediatly. Sometimes you restart the PC and overdrive is good again, then bad etc. This monitor is not a great model.

ViewSonic XG2402 + Gsync (driver enabled) + 138fps/141fps cap = Higher motion clarity than AW2518HF 240hz with VRR, because of the pixel response time behaviour.

240hz still offers you objectively lower input lag, but that´s it.
