Ordered Monday and it arrived Friday. Pretty insane coming from Korea.

VESA mounted it to the wall for full motion.

Thing I noticed right off the bat: Doesn't come with a power wire that works with U.S. plugs (had to borrow one from previous monitor). Larger viewing area and much more desktop space. Base stem is there to stay and looks ugly (base can be removed).

Things I noticed a bit later: Color is not very good out of the box, 96Hz is simple as changing a 60 to 96.

Things I noticed later: 120Hz gives off static horizontal lines, 120Hz makes colors even worse (correctable though). 120Hz makes games feel smooth as butter. Movies look awesome in both 96 and 120 mode.

Things I looked into: My monitor has moderate back light bleeding (not light but not picture destroying) but it only has 1 dead pixel in the bottom right corner. This doesn't bother me because I knew I was paying much less for an A- panel. A particular bad patch of light bleeding would probably be fixed by a tape mod anyways.


So a few things I need help with:

Is the base stem removable or is it melded with the plastic in the bezel?
Where are some good color profiles for 120Hz / 96Hz X-Star?
How do I get rid of the few horizontal "glitch / static" lines that appear in 120Hz?
I'm guessing the base clock needs reducing but how? Currently it is at 483.3984 MHz.


Also League of Legends will just crash if not opened in 60Hz mode. It will play alright in 96Hz / 120Hz but when you first open the client it crashes.



edit: I got rid of video corruption in 120Hz by using these settings. Thank you immensely Spartan F8!
I'm using the 3ft. DVI-D cable the monitor came with.



Although if you think using preconceived settings is too easy then overclocking consists of reducing "Total Pixels" by 10 and "Total Lines" by 1 until the problem goes away and you don't get a black screen.

my qnix came with a 6ft dvi cable. Maybe xstar ships with a 3ft?

I'm about to order a 3ft from mono price I want to see if I can get that last 10hz to 120hz

Can some from the EU say how many days did they wait for the monitors to arrive?

I bought one X-Star and one Qnix from different sellers to test my luck and I'm very eager to get them before New Year smile.gif They were sent to me through EMS to Macedonia, so I was wondering if anyone else got them through EMS and how many days did you wait?

Also thoughts on a 780ti classified vs 290x dcii or lightning. Will the 4 gigof ram and 512 bit really make that big of a difference on 1440p....
I don't have these issues with my 780. As far as the 290 artifacting any gpu will do that with too high an OC. 290 just has small amount of OC room on air because of heat.

2. Maybe coil whine, as mentioned previously.

Even connecting the multi-input monitor via dual-link DVI will not result in it being able to overclock. Multi-input monitors cannot overclock, period. It is due to their PCB design.

Sry, that was no answer? Yes I am on SSD, what does any of that have to do with my DisplayPort MultiInput version turning off, and moving windows to my other monitors, even thougn the other two normal DVI input monitors only sleep, have to do with SSD?

Anyone else? Why is the Multiinput version turning off (red light) and moving my windows around, when my computer sleeps? The other monitors don't do this.

Anybody else with a 290 or 290X get corruptions like this if you set your graphics cards voltage to +200? It seems me and two other people are having this issue over on the 290/290X thread. It does not do this when I connect my asus 120hz VG278H monitor up. It only does this with the qnix. It does not matter what frequency I have the monitor set to either. 60hz to 120hz they all do this.

You are looking at 60hz here. For some reason +200 extra voltage on my 290X is causing problems with the monitor itself. Very very strange.

Seems like Dream Sellers after holiday batch of XStars are legit. Mine has no blb or dead pixels and can also oc to 120hz without any issues. Still looking for the right .icc. Asus and Samsung seem a little bright, Viewsonic is almost there, for me anyhow.
