The Best BenQ Monitor Settings used by Professional Players

Finding the best BenQ monitor settings can be quite hard and time consuming. That is why we have gathered these settings from Professional players. They don’t like cutting corners when it comes to their equipment and performance. It only makes sense that the pro players take great care to find out what the best BenQ monitor settings are.

Zowie by BenQ is by far the favorite monitor brand of most gamers. Pros like to have the best possible performance, so 99% of the professionals that we’ve analyzed are using a monitor capable of displaying 144 or 240 frames per second, i.e. a 144/240Hz monitor.

It goes without saying that getting a smoother image while playing can massively improve your performance. However, optimizing your color temperature, contrast, and so on are just as important. You want to make sure that you’re able to see your enemies in dark spots. That’s why you don’t want your brightness to be too low, for example, and on the other hand you don’t want to be blinded by bright light sources in the game.

Optimizing your monitor settings can help a lot with these sorts of situations. A lot of people don’t necessarily think about optimizing the settings of their monitor. Even if they do it can be quite a cumbersome and time consuming task to get it just the way you want it. That’s where we come in.

If you have ever wondered what BenQ Settings CS:GO pros use you have come to the right place. Since BenQ is by far the most popular brand when it comes to monitors we have decided to gather data on the settings that the professionals are using on their monitors, so you can have a baseline to work with and finetune in order to make it your own. You’ll be surprised at the difference this can make, so we wholeheartedly recommend taking a look at what the pros are using. It’s a great (and free) way to get yet another edge on your opponents.

    DyAc setting?

  11. Ohzoj says:

    What exactly do you mean by blur reduction off on some of these monitors? Like on the benq xl2546 there is no “blur reduction” setting, it’s either dyac or AMA, so when you say “blur reduction off” do you mean they have dyac and ama off or what?

    • Max says:

      DyAc reduces blur. 🙂

    • Felicity says:

      If you hold down the third from the right (ie x y power, x being it) button while turning on the monitor, it gives access to a manufacturer’s menu that allows you to enable blur reduction. Not officially supported, but present and functioning and fine.

      Yes, the 2540 has a blur reduction option but they didn’t include it anywhere but it’s still accessible. Cool monitor.

  12. 16308 says:

    On the color vibrance you can put this to 10 for people you don’t know because that is the default any lower it goes black and white.

    S1mple’s Benq display has a standard color temperature or RGB is 100 (user-defined) – I found these two are completely different

    In other words, whether the color temperature Settings in the s1mple’s benq display are standard or user-defined

    is new?

  26. GimMe says:

    BlurReduction “OFF” > they mean the DyAc settings for this monitor ? Cuz why should you buy an XL2546 whit DyAc and put it off ? buy then the XL2540 its cheaper and have no DyAc options….

  27. csgo fans says:

    I can’t find s1mple share monitor settings video(i mean Standard version).

  28. zzzzzzz says:

    Do most pro players play with DyAc on? and what is the reason for turning it off?

    • Max says:

      It’s roughly 50/50 between the pros using and not using DyAc. Some pros think it causes input lag but that was already disproven. 🙂

  29. Nevermind says:

    Why on my monitor is darker than on coldzeras screen and i put your settings. I saw his last stream and i think he update his monitor settings. Myb im wrong?

  46. Brian says:

    am i crazy are does it seem none of them are using the display port? im using an older benq 1080/144mhz g-synce monitor (XL2420G). One of the first “g-sync 1080/144mhz monitors to come out i believe? Anyways i can not get some of these setting options when running off the display port. Options like ULMB,Color Temperature, and Gamma are all faded out for me, i can not tweak them. I have no “sharpness” setting at all. Im noticing some using the FPS1, and Gamer modes? When mine is in Gsync setting i dont have those “fps” and “gamer” modes to be able to select from. I do know that if i switched it from display port to hdmi that thats when i do see modes like “fps” to choose from. Which why im wondering/asking are they not using these monitor with display port? prob dumb question, i just cant wrap my brain around it.

    • rozil says:

      i’m using display port and i have all of those options but i have the benq xl2411p which is a somewhat newer version which is probably why i have these options and you don’t.

      • Buri says:
