[Official] The Qnix/X-Star 1440p Monitor Club - Page 1170

post #11691 of 25922
Seems i'm not the only one who can only oc his 290/x so far while ocing the qnix without getting artifacts, someone else in the 290 forum has the same issue.
So it isn't just me it seems to be a problem with (some?) qnix and 290's together.

I don't have any artifacts that I can notice.

The pixel clock frequency just like your CPU frequency can have a moderate overclock with absolutely no side effects. You running your monitor at 469mhz when it is rated at 450 is like running a CPU rated for 3Ghz at 3.15Ghz(only about a 5% overclock). You could potentially go lower but only if needed due to side effects(artifacts, uniformity, etc).

No not yours so much...

Can the LED lights for these monitors be turned off?

I used a little square piece of electrical tape before i debezeled mine. You could break the LED soldering on the control board, but other than that no.

I was just wondering how big the borders are, do you mind measuring? I have dual 7950's at the moment with a third 7970 in standby if needed.

Ya the borders are thicker than I'd like. You may be limited on your settings options with 7950's If you try to run three of these beasts. They're good cards but you won't get near the extra power adding a third card that you did when you added your second. Hopefully one day they'll fix that though but I'm not holding my breath. Even with my 290's I may need to turn a setting down here or there depending on the game I'm playing. 7680 x 1440 isn't an easy feat on some games depending on your expectations.

I originally looked at the 7950's before getting this monitor but once I saw the huge drop in performance various sites were reporting going from 1920x1080 to 2560x1440 on just one monitor I knew I better just bite the bullet and grab some 290's. Of course not every game has to be ran at max settings with everything enabled.

So I have a multi-input version and have to use Display Port, as my video cards two DVIs are taken.

So it will not overclock. This is disappointing (even though I knew it was very likely it wouldn't).

If I got a Active, DVI to DP connector, will that overclock? Or is it just this version of the monitor will not overclock?

Yeah, I'm just playing MMO's. The extra real-estate is nice for the GUI, and it isn't all that demanding. And editing videos should be a step up as my current monitors are TN panels.
