If I were you, I'd just crank up the pixel rate until the picture
becomes unstable, and then back it off (say) 2%.

Works for me. Most (99.99% of monitors, and ALL 17" ones) wont let you
use modelines that are too far out of spec.

My Iiyama was 'configured' by this method and is working wonderfully,
despite being left on all day, every day, for 3 years.
