You probably set the wrong values.  Anyway, if that didn't work try the 

If you're using the 'nvidia' driver add this to your "Device" section of 

Option "UseEdidDpi" "False"
Option "DPI" "96 x 96"

AND add

Xft.dpi: 96

to ~/.config/xfce/Xft.xrdb

You might also want to try starting X with the -dpi 96 option by 
adding it in /etc/X11/xinit/xserverrc
