Concerning the DVI mode, This is a quote from ToastyX from 120hz.net and is the best description i have found(props to ToastyX)

""""""""""""""""""
These options aren't really documented, so I can only guess based on what I know.

"Reduce DVI frequency on high-resolution displays" probably has no effect on most monitors. Back when video cards, monitors, and cables could barely handle the full single-link DVI bandwidth, some people were having signal quality problems with 1600x1200 monitors like the Dell 2001FP. 1600x1200 @ 60 Hz without reduced blanking is close to the single-link DVI limit of 165 MHz, so that option would use the CVT reduced blanking standard to reduce the pixel clock to around 130 MHz to get a more stable signal, similar to how we reduce the timing parameters to get a better overclock. Nowadays, most LCD monitors use CVT reduced blanking by default (or EIA/CEA-861 for 1080p), so that option wouldn't have any effect. It should be left off so it doesn't mess with the timing parameters.

"Alternate DVI operational mode" is coherent mode, meaning the clock and data are synchronized. Originally, DVI was non-coherent because the clock multiplier caused a delay in the clock signal that needed to be compensated for at the receiving end. This caused problems when using longer cables because the length affected the delay. Nowadays, everything is designed to use coherent signals for better stability, so this option should be left on. It shouldn't be turned off unless you're using an older non-coherent display.
""""""""""""""""""""

With that said i would leave it on if i used AMD cards.

Yea I quoted that earlier As to why I was leaving it on. I'll keep it on then.

Also I just tried your suggestion for 110 and I get no picture at all.

I've found that the cheapest seller for X-Star is dream-seller and the cheapest for Qnix is excellentcastle. So according to the table of all members who bought from these sellers posted in the main post I've made this:

excellentcastle:

bbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbb
gggggggg
ppppp

dream-seller:

bbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbBbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbb
gggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggg
pppppppppppppPpppPpPP


b - menas has some bleeding
g - perfect with no issues
p - stuck/dead pixel

Seems like the X-Star is more reliable than the Qnix at least when bought from the cheapest ebay sellers. This is the quickest summary I could come up with. What do you guys think?

They're both the same, the sellers just have things marked up different, as it's based on w/e they wanna sell in however they want to sell such as the BS Perfect Pixel. Go with whatever name sounds cooler.

I've posted on this a few times I'll refind it and requote/source G-Sync will be working for these monitors. It's already been confirmed for the panels.

Anything special I gotta do to get 120hz on my monitor with sli?

Just got a second 770 and having problems. When I enable it it just locks up every 10 seconds or so. Like the monitor locks up also does this in 60hz mode. Only when I enable sli does it do this. I'm not overclocking anything at all right now.

Did you use the FULL pixel patch?

So it's not worth the extra money for a "pixel perfect" monitor?

This has been gone over so many times i think i am just going to start quoting one of my previous statements, and BTW if you search "scam" in this thread the PP topic is the only topic that shows up.

Anyways her is the quote

Perfect pixel is a blunt statement that when you receive your monitor there will be no dead pixels. This is a complete load of nonesense as mainstream monitors cannot even guarantee no dead pixels. There has been plenty of times that my company will order dozens of monitors and a small portion of them will have dead pixels and will have to be sent in for a RMA. This demonstrates that a "guarantee" of no dead pixels is nonesense. Not to mention is says "dead" pixels which is too vague to count "stuck" pixels or "bright" pixels.

The only way this is valid in any way is IF with the particular seller you are going to states that their "perfect pixel" class warrants that if there is ANY dead/stuck/bright pixels they will RMA the monitor for free(meaning paid shipping back). This is certainly not the case as we have heard many people in the Qnix club have bad experiences with the perfect pixel term(scam). I would confirm this with the seller before even ordering.

Most of the time what i have seen is even with a perfect pixel term used if there is an actual dead pixel(a lot of the time they are stuck) the seller will try and give you a partial refund(which is a great conversation).

All in all this has been repeatedly confirmed to be a marketing term(scam). I would look more into what the sellers warranty period is and what the acceptable level of dead/stuck/bright pixels is which does apply even with perfect pixels. You want piece of mind buy an actual warranty (squaretrade) otherwise unless you contact the seller and specifically find out what perfect pixel entails or you are just tossing money into the fire.

Nope, just a money making technique, just the luck of the draw.

Every monitor usually has something odd with it otherwise it wouldn't be A- most people have backlight bleed. Some people like me dont have that and have a small bruise in the monitor. Either was the monitor is amazing.thumb.gif


Best purchase I've made this year.
