[Official] The Qnix/X-Star 1440p Monitor Club - Page 1164

post #11631 of 25935
Ok guys here is my solution for the Qnix Stand. First off, I love my old Dell Monitor stand so I wanted to find a way to use the stock Dell 2407 monitor stand I had with the VESA mount on the Qnix Display.

The first issue is that Dell uses a proprietary snap in VESA mount on there monitors that will only work with other Dell monitors. There are no screw holes to go with 100mm or 75mm VESA mounts.

STOCK BRACKETT:

You need to replace the stock dell backplate with the Dell VESA mounting adapter plate below

The plate is available on Ebay for $15.00 . The 4 mounting screws that came with the VESA plate ( To attach the back plate to the monitor) were about 1/8 of an inch to long so I had to cut them down with a hacksaw. You could just as easily for to Lowes and buy some shorter screws.

The stock Dell Stand has 2 alignment posts

For my monitor I had to overdrill these two holes on the VESA adapter plate so the guide holes would fit to my Dell Stand alignment posts:

Personally I think the Dell stands are about the best out there. I was glad to find a solution to allow me to keep my favorite stand. Hopefully this will help some people out. Also, I used some sticky tape to mount a USB 3.0 hub on the back for extra connectivity.

There are numerous Dell stands available for purchase on Ebay,

A word of warning, there are a few Dell stands that use a different mounting pattern. So, If you are planning on buying a stand online please compare the screw mounting patterns on the stock Dell stand you are planning to order with the VESA plate to make sure they are the same. Good luck, here are some pics on my final set up.

>> TO CLARIFY << The stand that I use below is for a Dell 2407wfp Ultrasharp monitor. That monitor weighs 18lbs. The Qnix has enough weight for the tension on the stand spring to work properly. If you are going to buy a monitor stand online, I suggest you look up the stock monitor it is associated with to make sure that the weight of the Qnix is close to the stock Dell monitor weight.

It still looks beautiful. For the price, nothing beats it.

I'm using LCD reduced. Is there any way of fixing this so that I can enjoy power saving and lower temps while still having 96Hz?

Just naother note when I leave everything default and just push the hz to 96Hz then my top card stays at 500MHz/1500MHz and don't downclock but my idle temps is something like 47C with 30% fan speed. on 40% fan speed I get some coil whie but my Graphics cards is working fine.


Hope this is enough info. Thanks

anyone?

But i bet that looks quite amazing in games(excluding the excessive hardware requirements).
It looks absolutely insane in-game but yeah, I definitely lack the hardware to even hit 20 FPS< let alone 30 FPS. At least in Assassin's Creed 4.

Here's an example of how perfect the AA is though. Mmmm.... all those perfectly smooth lines smile.gif

I'd prefer higher refresh rates on my resolutions if possible so I'll still look into any tweaks I can do.

I used to own a glossy korean monitor (Shimian). And now have a tempered Qnix. Can't say I can tell a difference between the screens. Both are beautiful and look glossy.

Athough I only used the qnix for about thirty minutes as it is my Christmas present for tomorrow. But had to test it out.

anything more than 60 hz and your card is not going to go back to the default idle speed.

Any ways to fix the monitor issue im having? Have my Qnix up and running as my main monitor on my 7950, but whenever I plug in my other Asus through HDMI to run as a secondary, my Qnix turns off.. When they are both plugged in I cant make my Qnix primary or do anything to extend it.
