[Official] The Qnix/X-Star 1440p Monitor Club - Page 127

Coolio831, re-seating all the cables didn't help. Does your power unit make any noise? Mine sounds like it may be crapping out.

New owner of the Qnix monitor, bought pixel perfect from green-sum. Came with no dead pixels, but had some backlight bleeding that was bothering me in movies at dark scenes.

What I did was open the monitor from the front only and put a folded paper handkerchief behind the LCD panel near the bleed area, so it would put pressure on the panel and push it towards the front, then I just closed it up again. Before this I checked the monitor by putting pressure on some spots and noticed that bleeding disappears if I touch the right spot.

There is still some little bleed, also in other parts, but very minor, but now it's quite a bit better.

First picture is before, the other two are after.

Time for a new power brick then, mine doesn't have that problem.

Quick question on the overclocking, the guide says to copy and paste the default profile. It's just when I hit copy, I cannot paste to make a second profile to edit.

Am I supposd to "Add" a new profile, and if so which timing do I choose?

Go add and then paste the profile into your new one.

Do these power bricks come with US plugs or do you just switch out a old monitor cable with the brick when you get the monitor ?

They come with an adapter, but I used an old PSU cable and it worked fine without having to use the Korean to u.s. outlet adapter.

The Qnix has a standard c14 power input?

It's not a big effect but it is a shade different, enough so that I'm slightly concerned. Is this par for the course with overclocking these things, or might something be going bad? I didn't notice the issue when I first got the monitor, but it could well have been there (and still appears if I downclock to 60hz). Since I noticed it, no worsening appears to be taking place. Thoughts?

Anyone else with this issue, or is it normal even? It starts looking almost completely uniform but once it's been on a few minutes this happens to a degree then stays that way until powered off (it doesn't change past a certain point).

Yes, my X-Star DP2710 took a normal grounded US computer/monitor cord (C14 connector) on the power brick socket. I used that instead of the included adapter.
