Considering the relative complexity of these PCB's to modern tech, they may be more similar to older-style CPU's than newer wink.gif. This happened technically due to the electrical pathways setting themselves in along traces and transistors once used awhile. Would I be surprised to hear this is what happened if some all-knowing guy told me? Yeah... but I wouldn't be shocked in disbelief wink.gif.

It's just strange. Maybe something was busted, I was attempting to install the 320.00 Geforce beta drivers and something screwed up. So I did a clean removal and reinstalled, and did that 120hz thing.

Metro in the Alpha did not have the tint, for the record (and which is the main proof it truly exists). You can find comparison shots around...

Yeah on 96Hz colors looked great w/ that ICC still but whites too bright so I couldn't see some subtle borders and such in various things.

Ah, not sure what type that was. The blue tint is there but it's really minor (at least in my opinion) on most maps. The way you hear some people carrying on about it though, you'd think it was a completely blue screen wink.gif.

This is probably not the best place to put this but i have been hanging around here so much. I just got a new Asus VS229-P to setup portrait next to my Qnix since i am selling my Crossover and for the hell of it i tried overclocking it. It took some tweaking but i got it to 72hz. I had to mess around with the CRU settings for a while to get it past 70hz and could not ever seem to get it to 75hz. I confirmed this with the refresh rate multitool. Also when using the multitool remember to only have one monitor active or you will get incorrect results(doh mad.gif ).

Just figured i'd share if anyone is looking for a good browser side monitor.

Yeah the problem with me is that if there is anything in front of me that kinda contradicts the fact that its actually real is the reason of my headache. I will try to explain it better. My mind keeps telling me there isnsomethijng messed up with the depth. I once went to this simulated in my hometown and it was 3d too but that flight simulator was so dark that there was nothing else visible other then the display and that was the best 3d experience I had.

Yeah, I know that's what I have go through too I guess. My mind keeps looking at the other stationery thongs around the monitor and for some reason keeps telling me there is some thing at work here.

Bump!

Yup! Though people will say keep it 105 if you don't notice any tearing, but if you can't notice tearing you won't notice much difference in the two. So it would be wise to stick with 98 hz and go easy on the monitor.

Is it worth the risk to get one of these?I just bought a monoprice cause they are 25 miles from my house.It is a great monitor but i cant OC at all.Would it be worth the risk to get a pixel perfect Qnix and hope to be able to OC it?What is the exact one that can be OCed?

Both the monitors are OCable and most have reached 98 hz and it is believed that higher hz depend on your gfx capacity too.
I would have stuck with the mono price simply because it has a warranty and you can easily claim it and since you haven't mentioned any errors I will recommend sticking with your mono price for now.
