CRU (Custom Resolution Utility) Tips, Tricks and Monitors OC (LCD/LED/CRT)

Custom Resolution Utility known as CRU was made by ToastyX from this site -> Forum-Monitors-Video-Cards

================================================== ====================

1. OC your Monitor

Run CRU as Admin !

Here is New CRU Beta (supports AMD Freesync & HDMI 2.0) -> CRU-1.2.99-p2

And here Normal version of CRU 1.2.6 Download CRU-1.2.6

Then Set your desired Resolutions + Refresh rates
Here is my Settings for CRT Diamond PRO 2070SB

 Click to show spoiler



And also some usefull knowledge:
"LCD standard" should be the same as "CVT reduced blank" except for TV resolutions like 1920x1080 @ 60 Hz, which uses the CEA standard because that's more common (even with computer monitors).

"LCD native" just uses the 60 Hz "LCD standard" timing parameters for all refresh rates. This works better when adding higher refresh rates with some LCD monitors and TVs. This is also what is filled in by default when clicking the "Add..." button.

"LCD reduced" uses non-standard timing parameters to reduce the pixel clock for certain resolutions by reducing the totals. For example, it will keep 1920x1080 @ 72-77 Hz under the 165 MHz pixel clock limit for single-link DVI using timing parameters that I've found work with many LCD monitors.

"CRT standard" should be the same as the "CVT" standard. It is mostly useful for CRT monitors, and it also works for adding lower resolutions with LCD monitors.

"GTF" isn't included in CRU, although I did write the code for it. It is an old standard that has been replaced by the CVT standard.

"DMT" doesn't make sense as a timing option because the DMT standard only defines timing parameters for specific resolutions and refresh rates. "LCD standard" uses the DMT standard for 1360x768 @ 60 Hz and 1366x768 @ 60 Hz because those are common with LCD monitors and TVs, and the DMT standard for 1920x1080 @ 60 Hz is the same as the CEA standard.
by ToastyX

TIP -> If something goes wrong go into Windows Safe Mode and Hit Reset-ALL in CRU directory !
TIP -> Its always good to have some Vendor Specs for your Monitor (google it) to know what H/V Refresh rates it supporting.

TIP for 1080p LED/LCD users, you can set Refresh Rate 75Hz and/or Custom Resolution:
2200x1125 total, 148.50 MHz pixel clock / 148.5 MHz 2200 x 1125 @ 60.00Hz

Here you Have -> Pixelclock calculator
Also this is great Site for some Testing -> Blur Busters UFO Motion Tests

Also is good to see what resolutions or refresh rates work for your Monitor by setting Custom Resolution in CCC !

================================================== =======================
2. Enable Freesync for your Monitor
(GPU will have to support it, DP or New HDMI Strongly recomended - Bandwidth is what Freesync needs)
In CRU Edit Extensions Blocks and Add Freesync Range.



Here the AMD freesync Demo to test your settings -> AMD_FreeSync_Demo_0_9_1_setup

Pro TIP for Freesync Monitors Users -> Here you CAN adjust Freesync Ranges easily e.g. from 45-75 to 33-75

Like always look into Monitor Specs and H/V (Horizontal/Vertical) Reresh ranges and set this in here:

 Click to show spoiler


TIP:
AMD/ATI Pixel Clock Patcher modifies the AMD/ATI video driver to allow higher resolutions and refresh rates by removing the 165 MHz pixel clock limit for single-link DVI and HDMI, the 330 MHz limit for dual-link DVI, and the 400 MHz limit for VGA.

-> AMD/ATI Pixel Clock Patcher

And nVidiia Pixel Clock Patcher modifies the NVIDIA video driver to allow higher resolutions and refresh rates by removing the 165 MHz pixel clock limit for single-link DVI and HDMI, the 330 MHz limit for dual-link DVI, and the 400 MHz limit for SLI and 400/500-series GPUs.

-> nvlddmkm-patcher-1.4.0.zip

Also you can Play with some HDMI settings (if you have HDMI Plug-in LED)
TIP -> Don't set Bit Depth beyond Monitor Spec cuz' you'll have Black Screen Log-in (Run in Safe Mode and Hit Reset-ALL in CRU)

 Click to show spoiler


TIP for CRT Users -> Freesync Working as intended but only in 56-120 Range Mode ! (you can test also in 50-120 range but Freesync is based on VESA Monitor standard so in my CRT lowest Refresh is 56Hz, thats why it is working only in 56-120 (and more) range !
UPD. Demo runs OK in 56-120 but FC4 not, so only good setting for my CRT is now 57-120/74 ! (Tested and working OK)

Also is good to read you Monitor PDF Manual, this is point of interest:
e.g.:
--
Horizontal scan range
30 kHz to 83 kHz (automatic) Try from 33-35 (and go Up in 5Hz steps, always restart after change + Run CRU as Admin)
Vertical scan range
50 Hz to 76 Hz (automatic) Give Max 75
(When you OC you refresh rates for Monitor you Pick lower number from H or V Highest in this e.g. it will be Safe 75Hz becouse Vertical Highest is 76Hz)
Optimal preset resolution
1920 x 1080 at 60 Hz
Highest preset resolution
1920 x 1080 at 60 Hz
===========
Next is good to have GPU to monitor connected by Display Port (it has Higher Bandwidth, this is Important factor for FS)
Next if you have HDMI, try to OC your TDMS clock to 660MHz in CRU-> HDMI )

you can Enable it easier via DP converter to HDMI that ToastX recommends -> Accell B086B-006B-2 UltraAV DisplayPort 1.2 to HDMI 1.4 Active Adapter

Some setups need to be pluged by HDMI to DVI/DP etc. HDMI must be pluged in GPU (That's the easiest way to force Driver to detect Monitor as HDMI)
Some other setups needs to be Pluged by Display Port.
Last TIP -> Always restart you computer to reflect changes !

Ne01 OnnA Note:
I've decided to give This Great Utility its own thread (also to be more visible for others) & nV users also can Tweak/OC their Monitors.
It's still under construction !
========
Here is the list of Monitors that are capable & working with FreeSync:

Qnix 2710 = OK
Qnix QX2710 = OK
LG 29UM58a = OK
Yamakasi Catleap 2B = OK
LG 27MA53 = OK
Samsung S24C750P = Need work/Testing
AOC Q2963PM = OK + some more Work/Testing
Viewsonic VX2257 = OK + some more Work/Testing

Easy instructions for DVI monitors:

1. Pixel clock patch using AMD/ATI Pixel Clock Patcher !
2. Delete extra monitor profiles from CRU and restart driver
3. Open CRU again and add EDID custom blocks (HDMI support & Freesync range) to all profiles that exist
4. In Preferences tick: Include If slot avaible (like in 2nd screen)
5. Unplug and replug DVI connection


========

You may need to Edit Custom resolutions in Registry.

Here:

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Contro l\Class\{4d36e968-e325-11ce-bfc1-08002be10318}\0000]

"DALNonStandardModesBCD1"=hex:13,60,07,68,00,00,00 ,60,13,60,07,68,00,00,00,75,\
13,60,07,68,00,00,00,85,13,66,07,68,00,00,00,60,13 ,66,07,68,00,00,00,75,13,\
66,07,68,00,00,00,85,08,00,04,80,00,00,00,60,10,24 ,06,00,00,00,00,60

04,80,00,00,00,90,08,00,06,00,00,00,00,90,11,52,08 ,64,00,00,00,90,19,20,12,\
00,00,00,00,75
"DALNonStandardModesBCD4"=hex:12,00,10,24,00,00,00 ,00,12,80,07,68,00,00,00,85,\

92,00,00,00,79,19,20,14,40,00,00,00,74,20,48,15,36,00,00,00,66

Explanation now:
20,48,15,36,00,00,00,66 -> it means Resolution: 2048:1536 at 66 refresh rate, you need to edit any of those settings to your liking.
Exmp. If you need 1920:1080 at 80Hz -> 19,20,10,80,00,00,00,80 and so on.

And the same in here:
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Servic es\amdkmdag]

TIP - Its good to have this string Exported to a file for just Merging when Drivers gets updated, save some time.
TIP - Also is good to have working settings in CRU Exported to a File.

And for my Freesynced CRT The Winner is:
Freesync ON and v-Sync OFF


This is The Frame Times test in Witcher III (Good repetable scene)
Best Quality and the Frame Times with no Hickups is when FS in ON and The V-Sync OFF (CAP to 60FPS in Witcher menu)
Witcher III is on Ultra with .ini Tweaks + Ubersampling is ON + Reshade + SweetFX used.

programs used:

FRAPS (turned ON when Game is lauched)
And Of course The FLA Calculator -> http://www.gpureport.cz/Windows/FLAc...alculator.aspx
The Program is in English.

I know i have Low Frame Times but in CRT its how it is.
Clearly it shows me the Freesync is Working (As i said ) and it is Better that Way.

UPD.1
Some additional tests:
SoM, FC4, ME:C and Heroes VII DX9/10

 Click to show spoiler



UPD.2 testing Moar

Here good example is Shadow of Mordor becouse it shows Frame Variations when Testing Performance (Build in Bench)

Look in here (i can see this when gaming but here you have this in Graph)
Freesync Gaming is more Fluent

SoM FS-OFF / V-sync OFF (My Old Standard for Playing)

SoM FS-OFF / V-sync ON

This shall be interesting.



Fressync is not just software.
You must have hardware to go with it.
GPU has to have dynamic refresh rates with Adaptive Sync with display port except on new HDMI freesync monitors. Gpus still have to have dynamic refresh rates as well.
Secondly, the LCD panel has to be able to dynamically change refresh rate without demonstrating visual artifacts.

Its already been know to easily change the freesync range.
Been doing it since Nov 2015.
CRU has been updated to make this happen 10x easier then old method.

I tried this out for a lil while but then my settings stopped showing up after a driver install.Think it's because I'm on DP 1.2a which doesn't need the patch.I saw no advantage after that as nvidia control panel allows me to go up to 70hz using CVT-RB, 71hz if I set display scaling to gpu.Same result I got from using CRU.I'm on a Dell U2414H A03.

Now, if it's possible to get a custom refresh rate of 30hz or 40hz using this or any other similar utility, then I'll be more than happy to retry and experiment again.

It should not be such
Besides you cant go out of Spec (yes it's impossible)

Next -> you can always read in CRU Forums, but i know that ppl have good experience with this CRU (me too of course)

try, and if something is wrong -> Hit reset

WOW just wow is all I can say seeing this posted over and over by various people. I will admit I assumed as most there must be some hardware inside the monitor but it just simply is not true. Freesync is a standard that is part of DP and hence why it was only able to run there as HDMI has licensing issues, agreement issues, standards issues, and consortium issues as well as royalities for the use of HDMI.

See the following links about freesync, hardware, faq and so on.

https://youtu.be/go8sbI38YxI Raja Koduri speaking on Freesync over HDMI and how.

http://support.amd.com/en-us/search/faq/225

AMD Freesync powerpoint on freesync over HDMI The second page is the important one, it is being added as a HDMI standard with EDID data blocks to allow for this not hardware.
http://www.amd.com/Documents/freesync-hdmi.pdf

Pre freesync HDMI white papers http://www.amd.com/Documents/FreeSync-Whitepaper.pdf

Yes there are some min hardware reuirements such as HDMI 1.2, a GPU that can do freesync some can do even more. Like Low Framerate Compensation (LFC) and so on. However the monitor requirements only has to do with better quality lcd panels not any specific hardware controller unlike g-sync.

He's already "benchmarking" without investing any effort in finding out whether FreeSync works or NOT

I might be wrong, but this is how I read his FS posts:
If someone put a gun to his head and asked him to answer truthfully whether FS hack works, OR ELSE

He would answer either:
  • a) I don't know
  • b) It doesn't work

better? where do you get this from

you need special scaler that is able to change refresh rate seamlessly on the fly.

jesus why are we arguing... hit the OSD display info on your monitor/TV while gaming and see if refresh is going up and down...

http://www.monitortests.com/forum/Th...1-3-preview-P2

the comedy goes on

The "Admin" at MonitorTests who (almost) got confused by our techno-terrorist is actually CRU author!!!

Quote:
Can you take a video with FreeSync on and with FreeSync off?
The change in flicker as the refresh rate changes should be visible in the video if FreeSync is actually working.
basically he's saying that even if FreeSync worked on these no-FS displays, there ought to be flickering every time FPS goes up/down
which would be errr... kinda hard to miss,
and would render the hack useless for practical purposes (gaming)

Onna goes on to give him few tips on FreeSync:

Quote:
You need FS GPU capable + LCD/LED/CRT monitor.
FS comunicate with GPU to render more fluent FPS in Game.
Simply put -> its better with FS ON than OFF

And Bro, i don't have a must to force somebody else to bolieve what i've experience, but its working im sure of that.
I think than everyone need to test this on his own and then elaborate.

And Big THX for your work !!

Model U2414H:
Horizontal scan range
30 kHz to 83 kHz (automatic)
Vertical scan range
56 Hz to 76 Hz (automatic)
Maximum preset resolution: 1920 x 1080 at 60 Hz

So i see that you can easily go up to 75Hz Refresh rate or
Go for Higher resolution at 60Hz !
Try this one -> 2200x1125 total, 148.50 MHz pixel clock / 148.5 MHz 2200 x 1125 @ 60.00Hz

What? -> Tweak Moar

the comedy goes on

The "Admin" at MonitorTests who (almost) got confused by our techno-terrorist is actually CRU author!!!



basically he's saying that even if FreeSync worked on these no-FS displays, there ought to be flickering every time FPS goes up/down
which would be errr... kinda hard to miss,
and would render the hack useless for practical purposes (gaming)

Onna goes on to give him few tips on FreeSync:



Whats even more hilarious, is his blatant avoidance of our post against it.
He totally is reminding me of The General. Sometimes I miss that troll.

So i see that you can easily go up to 75Hz Refresh rate or
Go for Higher resolution at 60Hz !
Try this one -> 2200x1125 total, 148.50 MHz pixel clock / 148.5 MHz 2200 x 1125 @ 60.00Hz

What? -> Tweak Moar
I tried again but it's a no go.The custom resolutions just don't show up.The very first time I used it, it worked but after driver install nothing.Not a huge deal but thanks anyway.

Just got word today an associate of my bro is interested in buying the Dell.I was surprised anyone would've wanted it but I'm ecstatic..an Asus VG248QE is what I'll replace it with.I know, downgrade in viewing angles and color repro., but I need that multiple refresh rate.

It's not an avoidance
Not everybody will be lucky with Freesync, i said that in Main Post.

For starters its really working for me, Yes i know its little strange but it really Working and gameplays with it is much better.
You see those frame times + FPS from my FRAPS + FLA runs, nothing to add more from my side.

And:
Trolling (from Urban dictionary)
Being a prick on the internet because you can. Typically unleashing one or more cynical or sarcastic remarks on an innocent by-stander, because it's the internet and, hey, you can.

YES, you need to repeat whole procedure after Fresh Driver Install (for nV is a must)
For radeons you need to enter CRU and then restart.
But i've noticed that after WDDM 2.1 Driver 16.9.1 i have to Refresh all CRU settings (Again from the Start) Now its OK after Upgrade to 16.9.2

Also i have Custom Driver for My Monitor (Made by Me)

Dude seriously, I don't need a definition of trolling someone like you.
Especially on here.
You can keep trying all you want.
Its hilarious.
You'r post, website, descriptions, explanations are all so broken on every post.
Its one thing if English is not your first language. But its the way you put things together that always have been odd to me.

I do not understand all the nastiness here sometimes. Why all the arguing and even name calling. People get over it. Some of us come here and elsewhere to learn things, try things, work out things, heck even to push the known limits.

I get it, trust me I get it. Some people say it works and some say it does not, however I have not seen yet definite proof either way, so it is still a work in progress. The bigger thing I have seen is the pettiness from certain parties and it is "deplorable" but I have not seen these people put up any type of proof that it does not work, and I have seen people working out.

Once again go back a few years to the entire VSR, it was a work in progress that evolved over several months with a number of users contributing to the entire project. AMD during that time stated VSR was not possible on certain GCN cards at all due to hardware requirements. Which we here proved wrong. I got it working on my lowly HD 7770 cards then not that that was actually feasible to use to game in VSR on the HD 7770. Proof of concept. Remember it worked for some and did not work for other back then, but this entire exercise on our part forced AMD to admit it was possible and not actually hardware and make driver changes to allow it.

I was the first to show proof of a "working" vbios crossflash of my R 290X to R9 390 ( day 1 390 releases) as proof of concept then and posted here and at overclock.net which once again got the wonderful thing of worldwide internet collaboration rolling leading to a lot of projects which benefited a lot of people.

Anyway instead of just saying something works or does not work put up the proof that you have actually generated. I am reminded of a line from several movies ( para-phrasing here) "It is not what we think, it is what we can prove"

As it stands now this entire concept is a work in progress. Where it will lead no ones yet knows. I can think of a number of reasons this is just suddenly working based on AMD white pages I linked previously. Even what Raja from AMD said, was called bull***t by a poster here.

Yeah, and some of us are OC/Tweak Dinosaurus !
I've got 2133MHz DDR3 Working Great in 2000MHz on my Old PhenomII (So anything is possible)
We can even OC SATAII and SATAIII Ports ! (All you have to do is Tweak PCI-e Bus to 105%)

Freesync is working for me, it really is.
Frame Times are better, Gaming is Real 'Fluent' now with min. +2-3FPS More.

And Yes, we need to Dig this even further, maby it will give some additional benefit to many of us !
Thats an Goal for Tweaks/OC etc. to push the limits (not to hard of curse )

To be honest I don't believe that the monitor is actually changing refresh rates, which is the essence of Freesync.

On the other hand, the frame results (if the methodology is correct), seem to indicate that some sort of pacing mechanism in the driver is activated. Which would benefit everyone, Freesync or not. Since that mechanism is obviously software, I wonder if it could be activated for other cards and not only the ones that list Freesync.

Well, I can attest that it does work, as my frequencies are changing on the fly. My problem is that my monitors do NOT like this behavior and my screen blanks out when the frequencies vary. Thus why my screens blacks out, and comes back, and blacks out again, and comes back again, etc.

Update: I've tightened up the frequency range to 50-60Hz, and it's more stable, however, whenever I encounter a screen change (like opening up a menu), my monitor loses sync and blanks for a sec while it restores sync.

So it looks like FreeSync isn't really a playable option, at least for this game I am trying it with. Perhaps other, newer titles will have better success.
