I am about to go ahead and purchase one of these 1440p korean screens, not sure which yet but I just saw a you tube video regards a Yamakasi q270 being overclocked/used@ 120hz, two questions regards this, is this the norm and is this possible to perform with amd gpu or in catalyst.

Thank you

Nice btw for that 120Hz OC you need a quad channels tmds to lvds input board an a strong Tcon.
Also you can with an amd card but you need a application for it either toastyx cru or power-something(forgot the name)

Thanks, they are advertising one of the yamakasi models as overclockable to 120hz, I think the q270 2b, there is so many price differences for what appear the same screen and quite a few models but I think the price variation is on the pixel guarantee.

Broke down and bought a Benq 24" for FPS gaming ... sort of a waste, really as I don't play FPS too often but the few times I do, I have fun.

It's ridiculous how much better/more saturated the Samsung PLS screen is compared to the Benq .. and once calibrated, the Benq has pretty much the best TN panel I've seen. But not even close compared to IPS/PLS ...



...

I wonder how I got by without an IPS/PLS screen for so long ... as well as 1440p ... which I'm totally sold on at this point.

Let me help straighten things out for you. If you want a 120hz 1440p monitor you have 3 options.

There's the qnix/x-star route: now these monitors use PLS panels, which are supposed to be an improvement from IPS panels. They have an 8ms response time but every single one of them from what I've seen can overclock to at least 90hz. There are even people getting above 140hz with them. The downside is that when they are overclocked there are retention issues with some of the monitors theres also a gamma shift and because of that the picture will look off. Now a way to fix this is by just downloading a colour profile online from people who have this monitor and have already calibrated to fix the gamma shift when overclocked but no two of these monitor panels are exactly alike meaning it may not really help. An easy fix would be to just get a calibrator and calibrate it yourself. Now the second issue that some people get when they overclock this monitor is that if they leave it on a static screen retention issues occur and the image is burned onto the screen similar to plasma screens. Now the burn in doesn't last that long from what I've read and an easy fix would be just to leave the panel at 60hz and then change it to 120hz when your gaming. Its not really a problem because of how much of an easy solution there is but I just wanted to let you know tongue.gif another thing i forgot to add is that the build quality for this monitor is extremely bad and people have had backlight bleeding issues because of how the bezels were placed on top of the panel. However, like I said before its an extremely easy fix if you do have backlight bleed problems just search around.

Now the second overclockable 1440p panel you can get is the yamakasi 2b model: these use an IPS panel and from last time I checked are pretty expensive. They use A- grade panels and thats about all I can think off.

The third overclockable monitor is the overlord x270oc: Now this monitor uses the exact same panel as yamakasi monitor meaning its an IPS panel but with one key difference. This monitor uses an A grade panel as opposed to the A- grade used in the qnix/x-star and yamakasi monitor. Now this'll mean that there's less likely of there being a problem with your monitor. The fact is that every single one of these cheap Korean panels are defective in one way with the A+ stock all going to proper companies but the closer you are to A+ the better. Overlord is also an American based company meaning if there is an option with your monitor itll be easier to communicate with the company since there are no language barriers and also easier and cheaper as a whole. Now it's not really that big of a deal with me but I know people who did not want to buy a korean monitor because of the warranty and how they had to ship the monitor all the way to Korea if there ever was a problem.


Now there are a few things I want to add as an after thought too. All of these monitors have their advantages and disadvantages. A key advantage I forgot to add to the qnix/x-star is that these things are an incredible value. They are currently the cheapest and best overclockers of the bunch and for what you're paying they are an amazing deal. A key disadvantage I forgot to add to the yamakasi and overlord is that the PCB produced a highish pitched coil whine when overclocked and looking at a white screen. Now this issue isn't for every monitor some people haven't had any coil whine but a good majority of people including me experience it when our monitors are overclocked and there is majority of white on the screen. But again much like with the qnix/x-stars retention issues this is an easy fix of only overclocking the monitor when gaming. I do this and have yet to hear the coil whine noise while gaming.


Hope the information I provided here was of some help. If you have any questions don't hesitate to ask here and enjoy whichever monitor you pick smile.gif

Absolutely brilliant information, thank you for taking the time and the effort to explain the differences. I will post which model i buy in the next 24hrs, I may leave the overclocking alone and just be happy with the pixel density increase over my current 27inch@1080p.

It's all a lottery with these Korean monitors for overclock ability and pixel perfect quality, there is no pixel perfect guarantee no matter what the price is. I love my Qnix though amazing colors, great clarity and sharpness, I got mine overclocked to 110Hz and I probably wouldn't tell the difference if I could hit 120Hz, BF3 looks amazing though!

Thanks for the feedback, due to what sunreeper posted earlier, and now you, I have decided on the Qnix for myself so will be ordering tomorrow. The model is the QX2710 Evolution 2. Thanks again for the feedback as has been important. I will be building a new rig round October time and depending on the 9xxx gpu series from amd probably the 7990 so needed the screen upgrade, and the itch, out of the way in advance. Bf4 in 1440p hopefully with a few more hz to play with on this screen.

You're welcome, yeah that's what I have. I'm sure the Yamakasi is a great monitor as well but you can have the same quality panel with a 150 dollars less with the Qnix. Good luck on the new build I am gonna need a new build sometime soon maybe by Christmas but I should be fine with BF4 as I'm getting 85 to 120 fps in bf3 with this monitor, no screen tearing no crashing. I think anything with 100hz plus just looks like night and day compared to 60hz.

The Yamakasi Catleap Q270 "2B Extreme" is going for $599 on ebay and is overclockable to 120Hz the Yamakasi Catleap 2705LED is going for $439.90 and isn't overclockable so I read, to me the Qnix is a great deal at $269 and can be overclocked to 120hz but it isn't guaranteed. The X-Star is the same monitor as the Qnix but you don't have to open it up to take off the stand like you do with the Qnix if you wanted to install a vesa mount.
