HOLY FUCK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I FOUND THE SOLUTION!
In CRU, I edited the Extension Block > Video Capability. I set "Selectable RGB Range" to OFF.
Restart.exe
Fixed.
I'm absolutely amazed. And confused. And shocked. Been trying so much stuff.
ToastyX, I love you. I really do hahahaHAhahHah.
registered at monitortest.com just so i could personally thank @toastyx for this fantastic tool...

i use an htpc to stream only widescreen movie files to my 2:35 projector screen, and this handy tool allowed me to scale plex (and other media services) to fit the screen very nicely... my system is a windows 10/64 box with an i5 processor / intel hd graphics 6000 - you could set a custom resolution using intel's hd graphics panel, but it just wouldn't stick, it would revert back to the "recommended" rez after every boot.

this image is kind of hard to read, but 1920 x 817 has become my new (recommended) resolution:

btw, i didn't install any of the drivers listed on the first page, thought i'd first give it a go without, and everything seems to be working just fine! thanks again!
Hello!

I have a DVI monitor (Samsung SyncMaster SA300) that I was able to push to 1920x1080@77 Hz using a single-link DVI when I had a desktop with a NVIDIA GPU. Since then, I got a laptop with an Intel GPU that has a HDMI 1.4 port. I bought a passive HDMI-DVI adapter to still be able to use the monitor and I could reach 71.017 Hz before the monitor turns black. It seems that anything beyond this value changes the polarity and other parameters and, even though the pixel clock still is below 165 MHz, not even a "Not Optimum Mode" message shows up.

Is the HDMI a limiting factor now, or is something else required for a setup like mine to work with an Intel GPU?

What timing parameters were you using with the NVIDIA GPU? The same timing parameters should work regardless of the GPU, although I'm not sure how Intel handles the 165 MHz pixel clock limit with a DVI monitor.
Hey Toastyx been a while since I posted but I have a question that perhaps you know.

What exactly do you mean with this:

The video card will not reduce clock speeds when idle if the vertical blanking/total is too low. Horizontal values can still be reduced if necessary.
AMD/ATI cards require the "LCD standard" vertical blanking/total to reduce the memory clock when idle.

With the NVIDIA I was using the same automatic LCD reduced timings I'm using now with the Intel GPU.

After messing around with the cable and the kinda picky source/input selector of the monitor I was able to get an image to show when I go above 71.017 Hz, but while no warnings are shown from the monitor side, the image is wrong, as shown below. Any further changes regarding the cable (I even tried to use the stock HDMI that came with a PS4 thinking it would be of better quality) didn't work.

Is it possible to reduce the pixel clock without reducing the Monitor's refresh rate?
hi guys, anyone with these monitors that can provide me with a little review about them, which one is better and if any of these or maybe another one with the same specs that's better and if can be overclock?

It means what it means. I don't know how else to describe it. The memory clock can't change if the vertical blanking/total is too low, so it will always stay at full speed. RX-series cards can clock down with lower values. Older cards require the "LCD standard" vertical blanking/total.

What about with LCD standard?
