[Official] The Qnix/X-Star 1440p Monitor Club - Page 1233

post #12321 of 25888
Also trying to overclock monitor, i downloaded CRU but stuck on how to copy the profile :O
Which is profile? The one that says DUAL DVI?
or 'Detailed resolutions'?
hmm, i tried to change the hz of active profile to 96hz but nothing changes after restart? Do I have to select this in AMD catalyst or something?
Hmm, i selected desktop management, properties, then 96hz in AMD but when I do the ufo test it still says 60hz

No idea >< also, is it true that if new AMD drivers come out, i have to 'uninstall' the drivers, 'install' the new ones, then do overclock again (from step 1?)
Do I have to reset overclock before uninstalling/installing new drivers?

1. Read the documentation for CRU on how to copy profiles
2. The profile for your current active monitor will be the one with a * next to it. You can also cross reference the device ID with what shows up in your device manager
3. Mine has shown up as Dual DVI several times
4. Detailed resolutions is generally where you can enter new resolutions with custom timings or auto timings, again read the documentation.
5. if nothing changed then you very likely did not do it right.
6. Yes generally you have to apply the new refresh for it to work. When adding it into CRU your are simply adding it NOT applying it.
7. UFO test can be tricky to run properly. Make sure you do not have another screen active when running it. Also try moving your cursor around quickly and see if you notice a good deal more smoothness.
8. Yes each time you update drivers you will need to patch BUT your settings in CRU should remain as they are at the driver level. So install the new drivers, patch, and then apply the overclocked refresh rate that should laready be in the catalyst selection menu after patching.
9. NO your overclock is fine after establishing the best settings for you in CRU. You WILL have to reset or copy your monitor profile if you switch ports where it is connected since it will register as a new logical device thus not being connected to your previously setup resolutions in CRU.

Hopefully this gets you in the right direction but i do recommend doing some searching and reading more on this before starting again. You had a lot of very common questions that have been covered in great detail in the thread many times.

Joining the party. Qnix matte version. Received from accesorieswhole. 0 dead or stuck pixels, howver backlight bleeding is severe even for me (and i never paid much attention to such things).

Hi spartan, thanks for the help.
I tried adding/copy/paste etc and it didnt work :/
So I just edited my active resolution to 120hz, restarted, then set it in amd catalyst and now it works on ufo test biggrin.gif

Ok, so if a new driver comes out, update > patch > reselect 120hz profile
Do i actually have to 'uninstall' the amd drivers though because i heard they have trouble if yuo dont completely uninstall?

Thanks

oh i also tried to just put one monitor at 60hz to test separately if it works, but it came up with the werid colours so i guess they both have to be at the same hz!

damn i get green lines on one monitor frown.gif 96hz it is then

The copy paste doesn't work for me much either. I generally just take a screenshot of my settings and then re-enter them.
Generally it is better to do a clean install of your drivers but that is up to you. I have seen it work both ways but a clean install of the video drivers is generally the safest bet.

I personally like this but i dont know if it is strong enough for 27". I think there are members here who bought this, if you look through the posts here you may find some one who got it and ask them.

Monoprice 5970 Adjustable Tilt stand is sturdy and is only around 20 bucks. I have one on my Qnix currently. I cannot provide a direct link(my work block monoprice for whatever reason) but if you google monoprice 5970 it is one of the first links.
