Raspberry Pi 400 running latest SarPi has borders around display


I'm running the -current ARM installed via the fatdog SarPi installer on a Raspberry Pi 400 with dual monitors and have a small border around the displays. I compared with the original Rasbian that came with the 400 and both are set to the same resolution of 1920x1080. I have the border in init3 as well as xwindows. I've compared the /boot/config.txt between the two and don't see any differences.
Any suggestions where I can troubleshoot screen sizes.

Code:
~# nano -w /boot/config.txt

# Uncomment this if your display has a black border of unused pixels visible
# and your display can output without overscan
#disable_overscan=1

Well Thanks, that was pretty obvious wasn't it. I skipped over it because it was commented out in rasbian. Why would there be no borders there without disable_overscan?

Because you don't RTFM enough. That's why.
