Hope the first page will be updated with new profiles... thumb.gif

EDIT: Also, there is some posters here that they will confirm if using a high quality Dual Link DVI cables will OC more?

I just ordered the X-Star matte finish for $279! I hope I get a good panel. How hard is it to remove the stand completely? How far do I need to take the monitor apart to do so?

Congrats! I'm really hoping I can put together enough cash to pick up a 780 for my monitor. Don't think my 660's will be enough

I finally got the color profiles to load, and I know this because I seen it change.

But if I put a white image between the monitors, they both still look slightly different. Is there something else that could cause that? One is basically, greyer/darkerish

Qnix QX2710 @ 96Hz, 6500k white point, 120cd/m2, 2.2 gamma and 11 clicks brightness from the minimum. Matte monitor with quite dim room lightning.

Thanks smile.gif

Yeah, this is the very first time I'm buying a TOTL graphics card. I'm feeling that the computational power of single GPU's is finally able to pretty much run anything at 1440p at high settings, with > 60 fps. I feel that, for the current gaming dogma (high res, single monitor, no 3D) these cards are everything we need. Something has to change pretty drastically in order to need better GPU's.

I'm coming from the ati HD6870, which barely managed 40fps on high with BF3. I actually bought the R9 280X, and found out this card is everything you need for full hd gaming, but won't get you passed 40 fps running 1440p with demanding games. I figured, why the heck would I spend ~ €270 on something that's already lacking! The R9 290X also didn't quite catch my interest, since I would need an active displayport adapter for my third screen. The adapter + the 290X was coming dangerously close to the GTX 780 in terms of price, so I just went for easymode nvidia.

The GTX 660ti will run most games just fine on 1440p. I'm even able to run skyrim + 2K textures on 1440p with the HD6870 (I do get bad frame drops though). If you're a competitive BF3-BF4 player, and you want to play on high, you will need something better. But you probably already know ALL of this.

Every panel is unique and the same settings are note likely to give you a perfect match in two different monitors, but some calibration devices and softwares are offering a feature which allows you to match the colors on multiple monitors. If don't have a calibration device yourself and you are not planning to get one then all you can really do is to try manually calibrate the monitors so they would look the same. Pick the monitor you think has better colors (especially white and grey in your case) to your eye and try to manually match the other monitor to it. You are unlike to get a perfect match but with some effort you can get it close enough so you won't really notice the difference unless all you are doing is watching a blank white page biggrin.gif

If someone is a competitive BF3 or BF4 player, then they wouldn't have one of this Korean panels anyway. They are not exactly known to be good gaming panels for competitive gaming and especially not if it's a fast moving game like any FPS game really. And don't get me wrong as they are still pretty decent for gaming if you are not a competitive player or you don't need a fast panel for any other reason and I am loving my own Qnix as it's a great overall monitor. I'd definitely buy a faster monitor if I'd go back to competitive FPS gaming though.

And it's great to see that my calibration is working for many others too. A great monitor can turn into a amazing one with a good color profile.

Yeah, that's exactly what I was thinking after I wrote that tongue.gif However, I'm not completely convinced that it would matter all too much. Especially when you're gaming over the internet. The Qnix has a response time of what, 8ms? Even less when running at higher refresh rates? That's really quite negligible considering you can easily get 30 -150 ms ping depending on the quality/distance of the servers. Obviously when playing professionally every millisecond matters, but this wasn't what I meant with competitive gaming!

About the image persistence: I've found that I could ONLY see it with a dark blue/dark grey background. When going pure black, I don't see anything.
I'll try some different refresh rates, to see if they run more stable. Maybe 72/84 works better in the long run. Has anyone experienced any image persistence at plain 60hz?

something weird is going on while playing bf4.. Not sure if its monitor or game related. In locker room the screen will darken ALOT for afew seconds then it will pop back to normal.. Happens every now and again, most of the time after a spawn. Ill spawn and 5~8 seconds later it will pop back to normal. Anyone else.. Im using a profile at 96hz.
