  1. From what I can find it's the panel not strictly just Dell but the Dell is definitely really bad about it. I've adjusted too the monitor coming from an IPS display in conjunction with dithering.
  2. Added a few trouble shooting tips at the bottom of the main post. So far its still working for me 1809 will break dithering from a sleep or monitor sleep state requiring a reboot or sign out/in. Currently running 1809 and 418.91 drivers with it working.
  3. I had a issue the other day where after reboots the system wouldn't apply dithering. Some of the more recent posts on the main thread show people having issues after a windows update IIRC I'll have to troll the post again and not skim. Myself when i experienced this I had luck removing the dithering value, restarting, applying the dithering value again from exporting a new fresh file without the value then reapplying it. Make sure your not using WCM for any color calibration also try disabling "night light" in windows.
  4. Oh me too, I spent hours messing with it. I'm pretty happy with it now. Running games that can run 144+ fps is a whole different experience! But if I get another stuck pixel I think I'll see if microcenter will let me exchange it out for the S2716DG. I don't want to have to keep poking green pixels with my spen to make them go back lol.
  5. Well I updated the post and wrote out the steps I took, hopefully someone finds it useful.
  6. Honestly that's what it took for me. Just fiddling with it and seeing what worked.
  7. Are you using windows color management for any ICC profiles? I know some people reported it having issues, I had some myself. Also in the NVCP under change resolution I have "use nvidia color settings" and under adjust desktop color settings i have "other applications control color settings". Its also possible it might just be buggy. Others seem to have problems with it on reboots or logging in/out of windows. Mine seems to be working fine.
  8. I'm curious about that. Myself I don't have a colorimeter so I just used one i found so I wonder if it had any negatives when it came to that.
  9. Let me know if it works and what windows build you are on.
  10. In the original post I linked (I might just have to do a "Write up" for here so its less confusing) it shows how to modify the registry file to enable dithering on GeForce drivers. Guzz gives a bunch of dithering options he found. 8 bit temporal was one I and others used with success I tried 10 bit and it didn't seem to work. It might not be as bad on the S2716DG, my buddy has one and his didn't look near as bad as mine when I had him compare what I found so its probably more the S2417DG. For me I just do gaming, and it was horrible and super pronounced.
  11. So I'm a new owner of a Dell S2417DG (A05) monitor, well you can say 2? First one I had to exchange due to pixels being stuck. Anyway right off the bat compared to my Dell S2240M IPS display it looked just like a steaming pile of horse.. yeah. I wouldn't say just because its a TN. I have a probably 7 year old now LG E2250T and even that blew this thing away when it came to darker scenes not looking like trash. I'd guess you could call this display a budget monitor sorta? $329 for a 24" 1440p 144/165hz G-Sync panel. ANYWAY. The banding this panel had was terrible (google S2417DG banding for maximum lolz). I trolled through tons of reddit/ltt/geforcefourms posts tried many combinations of ICC's and NVCP colour changes with monitor brightness/contrast level changes with no luck. From what I could gather it was due to the panels gamma and no OSD settings to change it also NVCP didn't work right without crushing lots of blacks (I'm not an expert on this in the slightest so bear with me). I found some information on how "dithering" can help combat this. Problem is its not available on Nvidia drivers for windows? or at least on consumer level products. AMD supposedly has the option available but never having and AMD card ever I couldn't say. So more 4am google skimming lead me to the geforce forums where I found a comment by "Guzz" (Find it here) where he was able to edit some registry options and get dithering to work sorta. Following the instructions actually made it work. You can see some images here I took using my note9 here for some comparisons. From what I can tell these problems aren't limited to these Dell monitors but I guess the actual panel used across other brands? This is just what I found that helped me. ALL CREDIT GOES TO GUZZ OVER ON GFORCE FORUMS ORIGINAL THREAD - https://forums.geforce.com/default/topic/1082681/geforce-drivers/is-it-possible-to-quot-port-quot-dithering-from-nvidia-x-server-to-geforce-driver-/2/ COMPARISON PICTURES BEFORE AND AFTER - https://imgur.com/a/PiZ08Rv LINK TO THE ICC I USE FOR THE S2417DG - https://www.reddit.com/r/Monitors/comments/5g5z8q/dell_s2417dg_color_profile_calibration_settings/dbzwat9/ HERE ARE THE STEPS I TOOK TO IMPLIMENT THIS AND MAKE IT WORK FOR ME, I DIDN'T DISCOVER THIS 1. Disable WCM (Windows Color Management) or Nvidia's Color settings or other display color management software Launch Color Management and delete and profiles you see listed under Device then go to Advanced<Change system defaults and remove any profiles you see along with going to Advanced and making sure "Use windows display calibration" is unchecked. Now I didn't have any other display calibration software to force ICC profiles. You might want to disable them see if you can this to work then try to get them to play nice. You'll probably notice some brightness/contrast levels changed on your display. I also made sure in NVCP in the Adjust desktop color settings was set to "Other Applications control color settings" 2. Registry Edits Launch Regedit and navigate to one of the follow directories HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\nvlddmkm\State\DisplayDatabase\YOUR_DISPLAY_NAME_HERE or HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\nvlddmkm\DisplayDatabase\YOUR_DISPLAY_NAME_HERE To find your displays name go to Device Manager<Monitors<YOURDISPLAY<Details and change the property box to say Hardware Ids. The value should say your monitors ID, mine was DELA0E7. As you can see below I have 3 different monitors with names DELA0E7_1x_07E_xx for whatever reason I have 3. I believe it had to do with me changing some display settings in NVCP. Regardless apply the registry edits to all 3. After you find your display right click the folder and go to Permissions. I had to give SYSTEM and Administrators(PCNAME\Administrators) and give them Full Control/Read permissions to edit the registry. Right click the file and export it to the desktop naming it the same as the key you are modifying. I only do this because it seemed easier to me I'll explain down below. Edit the file and add any of the following dithering values that you want. I used 8-bit temporal ditherState - Enabled; ditherBits - 6 bit; ditherMode - SpatialDynamic "DitherRegistryKey"=hex:db,01,00,00,10,00,00,00,01,00,00,00,ed,00,00,00 ditherState - Enabled; ditherBits - 6 bit; ditherMode - SpatialStatic "DitherRegistryKey"=hex:db,01,00,00,10,00,00,00,01,01,00,01,ef,00,00,00 ditherState - Enabled; ditherBits - 6 bit; ditherMode - SpatialDynamic2x2 "DitherRegistryKey"=hex:db,01,00,00,10,00,00,00,01,01,00,02,f0,00,00,00 ditherState - Enabled; ditherBits - 6 bit; ditherMode - SpatialStatic2x2 "DitherRegistryKey"=hex:db,01,00,00,10,00,00,00,01,01,00,03,f1,00,00,00 ditherState - Enabled; ditherBits - 6 bit; ditherMode - Temporal "DitherRegistryKey"=hex:db,01,00,00,10,00,00,00,01,01,00,04,f2,00,00,00 ditherState - Enabled; ditherBits - 8 bit; ditherMode - SpatialDynamic "DitherRegistryKey"=hex:db,01,00,00,10,00,00,00,01,01,01,00,ef,00,00,00 ditherState - Enabled; ditherBits - 8 bit; ditherMode - SpatialStatic "DitherRegistryKey"=hex:db,01,00,00,10,00,00,00,01,01,01,01,f0,00,00,00 ditherState - Enabled; ditherBits - 8 bit; ditherMode - SpatialDynamic2x2 "DitherRegistryKey"=hex:db,01,00,00,10,00,00,00,01,01,01,02,f1,00,00,00 ditherState - Enabled; ditherBits - 8 bit; ditherMode - SpatialStatic2x2 "DitherRegistryKey"=hex:db,01,00,00,10,00,00,00,01,01,01,03,f2,00,00,00 ditherState - Enabled; ditherBits - 8 bit; ditherMode - Temporal "DitherRegistryKey"=hex:db,01,00,00,10,00,00,00,01,01,01,04,f3,00,00,00 ditherState - Enabled; ditherBits - 10 bit; ditherMode - SpatialDynamic "DitherRegistryKey"=hex:db,01,00,00,10,00,00,00,01,01,02,00,f0,00,00,00 ditherState - Enabled; ditherBits - 10 bit; ditherMode - SpatialStatic "DitherRegistryKey"=hex:db,01,00,00,10,00,00,00,01,01,02,01,f1,00,00,00 ditherState - Enabled; ditherBits - 10 bit; ditherMode - SpatialDynamic2x2 "DitherRegistryKey"=hex:db,01,00,00,10,00,00,00,01,01,02,02,f2,00,00,00 ditherState - Enabled; ditherBits - 10 bit; ditherMode - SpatialStatic2x2 "DitherRegistryKey"=hex:db,01,00,00,10,00,00,00,01,01,02,03,f3,00,00,00 ditherState - Enabled; ditherBits - 10 bit; ditherMode - Temporal "DitherRegistryKey"=hex:db,01,00,00,10,00,00,00,01,01,02,04,f4,00,00,00 After you edit the file you should see it like this Save the file and double click on it to overwrite the existing file with the one we modified. Before you reboot the system go to http://www.lagom.nl/lcd-test/black.php and http://www.lagom.nl/lcd-test/gradient.php. Take note of the black squares and on the gradient one note any vertical banding bars across the gradient. I would take pictures so you can do a before and after. I just used my Note9. This is what my before looked like Reboot the system, the original poster Guzz said you could use CRU and restart64.exe. I had little luck with it and regular restarts worked better for me. After it loads up open up the Lagom.nl Gradient and black tests. You should note that you gained back some of the black squares and the gradient has a smooth transition. COMPARISON PICTURES BEFORE AND AFTER - https://imgur.com/a/PiZ08Rv 3. Things to remember, your mileage may vary. From what I can find, its a hit or miss if it works. Mine works fine it survives restarts. Sometimes it seems to break when a driver crashes or if I change a display setting or when I load windows. Usually for a generic reboot fixes it. Sometimes I have to double click the registry file on my desktop again and reboot and it fixes it. I used 8-bit temporal because other had luck with it.I tried 10-bit and it didn't work right it seemed. I had a bunch of issues trying to load ICC profiles through windows which is why I opted to disable it an opted to use CPK with an ICC I found on reddit I liked. As of making this I'm on Win10 Home 64-bit, Version 1803 Build 17134.590 on an RTX 2070 with 418.81 drivers. Before doing this I did do a DDU clean and reinstalled drivers. If you find it not working after some sort of display change head back into regedit and look for an extra display, maybe you have a 2nd one causing issues? In the original thread people sometimes had issues with restarts or logging in/out in order for this to work after it working previously. You might have to go back into NVCP and try to adjust gamma after enabling dithering to make things look better. NOT WORKING? TRY THESE STEPS If you notice the dithering stopped working try rebooting the system If that doesnt work remove the dithering value from the registry, reboot the system, export another "clean" copy and re enter the dithering value, apply it and reboot. This worked for me Currently on 1809 dithering gets removed when the system wakes from sleep or when the monitors "sleep". To reapply the setting reboot or sign in/out usually works. Make sure you have no ICC profiles being used through WCM or any other program as it could cause problems Hopefully Nvidia will add this to NVCP sometime but I wouldn't hold my breath and hopefully there isn't some BS hotfix to stop this from working. If this worked for you feel free to share what you did as well as before and after pics

    Project White: NZXT Switch 810 Build

    @DieselWeasel it depends what fans I use. Generally tho it does seem sorta loud like the sound resonates through the case making them louder. I use a mash of fans because I've been too cheap to get matching ones for the whole case. The front 2 fan slots I have a 120mm Coolermaster Sickle flow (this one is louder), and 1 140mm NZXT fan that came with the case, 1 140mm NZXT fan on the hard drive cage, 1 140mm NZXT fan on the rear exhaust, 1 120mm random fan i had in the middle spot on the top of the case as exhaust, 2 120mm XSPC fans on the rad as intakes. Case is about 3ft away on the ground, noise is easily overpowered by TV or low volume music or my typing. But when its quiet you can definitely hear the fans. When I had more of the Sickel flow fans in the case it was VERY loud. Thought about loading up the fan slots with the Corsair RGB fans for some extra lighting and so I can turn the speed way down on them to hopefully reduce noise. Also yes, the very bottom part of the front grill is super annoying for dust I might have to try to figure out some ghetto filter. Its sorta weird hearing you call this an old case then I realize I built this PC like 4 years ago.
  13. First post here so why not make a build log. This is my first "build", previously I had a low end prebuilt PC from cyberpower that I ended up upgrading everything but the motherboard and CPU and case. So when I started this build I transferred most things over I had put in like the PSU, RAM, HDD, Fans, GPU (Had a Gigabyte GTX 560 Ti). ANYWAY, how it is as of current along with some future plans. NZXT Switch 810 White Case 8GB Corsair XMS3 DDR3 RAM @ 1600Mhz AsRock Extreme6 Z77 Mobo Intel i5-3570k @ 4.2Ghz 1.14v Gigabyte GTX 970 @ 1500Mhz Corsair TX650v2 Power Supply Storage is a mix of random hard drives I had Custom Water cooling loop I just got put in to replace an H100i, first time doing a custom loop too(Basically a XSPC Raystorm kit from performancepcs) -Dual 5.25 bay res/pump combo with D5 pump -AX240 Rad -Raystorm Pro Waterblock -1/2" x 3/4" tubing -Compression Fittings Previously it looked like this with the H100i Current plan of now are to run RGB LED strips in the case, get some individually sleeved cable extensions for the GPU, MOBO, CPU power cables but I'm running out of room behind the motherboard for cables (its a nightmare, I'll never buy a non modular PSU again). Probably look into upgrading to a more recent CPU/Mobo, and modular PSU. Along with some different fans. Also might get a waterblock for the GPU and add another rad on the top of the case buttt, not ready to void that warranty yet. Also looking into a SSD, I put super cheapo amazon one in my laptop and couldn't believe how fast it was so now I want one for this. Currently in the process of moving states so nothing can be done for a while plus my 2nd money pit has been hogging a lot of my time recently. Some misc pictures from the most recent water cooling adventure. Aside from a few mistakes from rushing like getting the inlet and outlet hoses mixed up on the block that I noticed after I got the loop bleed -.-, forgetting to take the protective plastic off the waterblock and wondering why I was doing 75c load temps, shorting the 8pin CPU power connector on a fan header on accident why bleeding the loop (haven't tried to make sure the header works, assuming its ded), everything went swimmingly and turned out better than I anticipated. Ooops Tis all for now
