Hello guys, so I tried using 75hz since that’s what my monitor can do on Windows.
My monitor is a 16:10 1650x1080
I use KDE Plasma
On windows everything works fine when I just change the refresh rate to 75hz, but I had an issue here on Linux. Pixels were flying around and my monitor showed me an error message that its overscan. I thought its just an issue with xrandr and tried every single refresh rate until 60. Then I noticed something: even at 60, my custom mode has the same problem. So I went into the display settings and saw that it was reported as 1650x1080 55:36 instead of 16:10. Anyone know what the issue could be? I used this guide from github https://github.com/kevinlekiller/linux_intel_display_overclocking with the xrandr method since I have an rx470. If it helps, this is my modeline
I used the command cd ~/ && ./cvt12 1650 1080 75 -b and got
well I now realized that I used the wrong res, but for some reason wtih 1680x1050 everything looks fine but my monitor itself still gives me an overscan error message and that I should change the resolution back
xrandr tells you the Hz your monitor supports for the resolutions. I would be going by that otherwise you risk damaging your monitor. I wouldn’t be concerned what it say’s in Windows. I doubt very much whether i could tell any difference. If the monitor supports it you should be able to set it to that.
