Hmm, this talk of lost calibrations while gaming has me a little worried... I was hoping to build a new rig over the Christmas holidays and I'd just about settled on two 780 ti's and two of the matte Qnix montiors... The fact that it doesn't seem to have come up extensively before now (to my knowledge) has me wondering how bad the issue really is though.

Coming from 1080p TN panels, would this be really obvious do you think? Enough to pass up 780 ti's and go for two 290x's instead? thinking.gif I hate tricky decisions!

It has arrived today and its looking great. No dead pixels and OCed straight to 120hz with no problems.
However i think i have alot backlight bleeding.



Is this acceptable or should i return it / try tape mod.

Do the tape mod. If you return it you may get a screen with dead pixels, and can't overclock. Not worth the risk when tape mod is an easy fix.

I'm getting 96 with v-sync, Ultra, 2x AA with some little dips to 65-70...no overclocks.

Using 1440, I've read that anti aliasing is a waste of power from your gpu's. I couldn't tell a differance, though I has been awhile since I've played with the graphics levels.

Just got my monitor...

WOWOWOOWOWOWOWOWOWOOW

No dead pixels from what I can see, no black light bleed.

From what I can tell... absolutely perfect

HOLY ****!

Coming from a 22" 1680x1050 120hz display. This is mind blowing

Edit: I just hit 120hz in the custom resolution. Didnt change anything else and Whammy! It's running. Thing is, my panel got quite dark doing that. So im gonna try and make it brighter through the gamma settings. Besides that... this is like winning the lottery.

edit 2: That didnt last long. I had some red and blue distortion lines going horizontal. Trying 96hz now.

I can do 120 but it seems 105-110hz is the sweet spot on mine, you might give that a go.

Thanks for the reply, Luna.

Did you mean the issue with the losing the calibration would be very noticeable? Or just the jump from 1080p TN to 1440 PLS is very noticeable? I'm guessing the latter. Do you game much on your Titans? Have you noticed poor colour, especially when overclocked?

The latter, and I can from a TN panel so it was very much recognizable on the sharpness/color/detail etc. Probably also the 1440p as well. As far as Color degradation due to overclock the only thing that changes for me is the gamma which I readjust as well as the brightness and it looks like 60hz again. Colors were spot on for me. As far as color issues the same applies to just about any monitor in a way. I have 4 HP monitors all the same model, and it varied a bit with each, but after calibrating / moving it over all were the same, mainly in the OSD settings vs internal.

Hope that helps.

Yes thanks. I think my hearts still set on 780 ti's so glad to hear it's not going to be too much of an issue. I won't be doing anything that requires a professional level of calibration so as long as I can get it looking good to my eyes, i'll be happy.

Now I just have to chance my luck on the monitor lottery! rolleyes.gif

p.s. Thanks for taking the time to document your matte coating removal, could prove useful down the line, +REP for your troubles. thumb.gif
