    So after giving up on the 4k TV as a monitor I bought a pair of nice Lenovo monitors with really thin bezels expecting to make a nearly seamless span. But along the top and both sides I have 3/8" of unused display space. The slider in OS X does underscanning fine but is there no overscan possibility? The displays themselves have only 2 options - original aspect ration and full screen. Neither changes anything. I have 1 hooked up straight HDMI and the other DP-HDMI but they both look the same.

    There are more than few "thin bezel" 3rd-party displays out there that (when turned off) would appear to support an edge-to-edge display, but when -turned on- have that "extra unused space" that you are describing.

    I have a Viewsonic 2770 27" display that is the same -- i.e., has a tiny "bezel" but also has roughly 3/8" of space around all edges when on. Granted, this wasn't a "big buck" display, but I bought it with the full knowledge of what I'd be getting.

    This is "in the monitor", as opposed to being something you can change with the Mac's settings.

    After a while, one adapts and ignores it...
