It's done by both the computer and the monitor. LightBoost needs two things simultaneously to work:
(1) A monitor-based hardware unlock. This is a one-time procedure after plugging in monitor. (That's what Strobelight does when it runs for first time)
(2) Custom video signal timings from the computer's GPU. LightBoost only works with a larger Vertical Total, such as 1147 instead of 1125.

To make LightBoost persistently enabled at 120Hz, simply delete all refresh rates for 1920x1080 except for LightBoost 120Hz (120Hz strobed). The easiest way to do this is to re-run Strobelight Setup and install ONLY one refresh rate (120Hz strobed). Viola. Everytime your games run at 1920x1080, it will be forced to run in LightBoost. You will not be able to turn off LightBoost until you unplug-replug your monitor from the power outlet, or if you reinstall refresh rates via Strobelight Setup.

"LightBoosting" lower refresh rates is possible in a homebrew manner if you open up your LightBoost monitor to make modifications to cause it to strobe at different refresh rates. LightBoost is currently hardware-limited to strobe at 100Hz-120Hz. See Electronics Hacking: Creating a Strobe Backlight ... For good hacking, it is important to become familiar with the LightBoost ghosting behavior ... You will need an external strobe driver to replace the monitor's internal strobe driver, and make it trigger based on the monitor's VSYNC signal. You'll also want a strobe-length adjustment and a strobe-phasing adjustment, for the reasons documented in this link. Please contact me at mark[at] if you want help hacking your monitor, because Blur Busters Blog would like to monitor your progress in hacking a LightBoost monitor. Take photographs of your progress. Blur Busters would love to cover your hacking endeavours!
