BenQ UNIVERSAL 144Hz->220Hz OVERCLOCK for 1080p 144 Hz

Talk about overclocking displays at a higher refresh rate. This includes homebrew, 165Hz, QNIX, Catleap, Overlord Tempest, SEIKI displays, certain HDTVs, and other overclockable displays.

Thanks, that has helped. In some rare cases it wasn't worked as expected, so an additional 500ms has fixed it. Something else that would be awesome if possible, the Windows power plan that puts the monitor to sleep after x minutes, when it awakes, it's out of range and OOR Fixer doesn't resolve this. I think that's about the only thing it's missing.

Happens on my side too, i just disabled the monitor sleep time (set to 0)

I'm aware of the sleep issue, and plan to look into it (among other things) when I have the time.

I noticed that the computer often wakes faster than the monitor when exiting a hibernate/sleep/etc mode, so perhaps a much longer delay pecific to sleep-exits may be good.

Tip that may be included in the first post: You can and should still apply another ICC profile to improve the washed out colors

Thanks for adding the wake delay -- that probably will help!

Can this work with the 2420g in gsync mode?

Hi! I'm really happy that this works but somewhat let down by the fact that I can't get over 180hz. Would a firmware update for my monitor potentially help? I have one of the oldest revisions of the XL2411Z.

For what it's worth, I'm at XL2411Z V4 and while it's able to do 210Hz, eventually the screen will become white due to an unstable overclock. Same even at 185Hz. At 180Hz it's perfect.
