Hello!

Monitor: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
GPU: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B007JCNOY6/ref=as_li_s...


So on my new build I was installing drivers and everything was good on my display. It was set on max resolution (1920x1080) before I installed the driver for my Sapphire 7870 AMD graphics card with no black border. After installing the Catalyst Control Center a black border about 3/4s of an inch appeared on my display. So naturally I went into control panel to see if my resolution is still set to 1920x1080, and it was. Next I found that the Catalyst Control Center has no 1920x1080 setting (highest is 1680x1050). I updated it to the latest version, but still no 1920x1080. And yes, the GPU has 1920x1080 capabilities.

TL/DR - Black Border around display on 27" monitor, no 1920x1080 option on AMD's Catalyst Control Center. halp.

The CCC deals with monitors above 20" as an HDTV.
Make the following steps, then apply it and everything will look bright.

Also make sure none of the boxes are checked in the scaling options tab.

The catalyst control center deals with monitors as monitors. The size doesnt matter. My 25 inch is certainly not detected as an HDTV.

Its of course worth a shot and may work, its really just another way to change the res. But its not how its supposed to work.

I don't suppose you actually bothered to install the monitor drivers?

An HD monitor is a display device capable of 1336x768 (720P) or better (most 17"/18.5"/19"/20" monitors)
An HDTV is the above display device with a tuner.
Full HD is a display device capable of displaying 1920x1080 (1080P).

That's what I meant by my post above, If you'll notice in the CCC basic resolution ends with 1680 X 1050 then it goes to HDTV standards.
I have Asus monitor and I never seen a driver for it also I don't get your point from the "driver" thing.

I can't get ilysaml's images to load so I'm not sure if I'm about to suggest the same thing, but I am having the same problem with mine... I just fixed it by going to the AMD Vision Engine Control Centre > My Digital Flat Panels > Scaling Options and scaled it to 0% (far right on the slider) and now I have no border.

If that is what ilysaml suggested, thank you. :)
