I did have it's cable disconnected from my GPU between the last time it worked and now so I could clean my loop and de-dust but that's it. It stayed powered off with red LED during this time.

If you have another monitor you can use, let's try this:

Boot up with the other monitor. Once in Windows, reset the pixel clock and everything back to stock. Delete the custom resolution for the Qnix, just in case. With the Qnix powered off, hook it up to the dvi port. Turn Qnix on. See if windows detects it (probably requires a reboot). Reboot. Display properties, see if it shows both monitors.

I'm also thinking you may have an issue with a poor soldering job on the DVI port, and maybe when you tried the other cable the solder was damaged. Anyways man don't panic I'll do what I can to help. thumb.gif

Edit: Also very important: I learned the hard way with my Sceptre, DVI is not hot-swappable. Never attach or disconnect a DVI port with the monitor powered on!!!

This is a super long post with details that might have nothing to do with this monitors review. I shared everything I felt was worth it.



The OverClocking:

OC'ed to 96Hz on my GTX 560. Doesn't go above 400Hz, even with the patch and CRU. It might not just be my GFX alone even my other specs are quite average.
OC'ed to 120Hz on a borrowed GTX 680. With nVidia control panel and patched drivers. Didn't tested for anything higher, didn't got much time to play with the card.

Update: The reason my GTX 560 didn't went above 400MHz was that the test mode was just visible on the desktop but it was never started for some reason.
So, these are the steps I took:
Reinstalled the drivers.
Patched the drivers.
Patched the SLI limits too, just in case.
Started the Test Mode.
Restarted the PC.
Created a 120 Hz custom Resolution in nVidia Control Panel and choose Automatic Timing.
It ran perfectly smooth.
I decided to see the highest I could go.
I went to 130Hz it wasn't supported.
So I changed the timing to manual and copied the information from this thread http://120hz.net/showthread.php?683-Overclocking-Quick-Start-Guide
I choose 130Hz instead of 120Hz and it was stable.
I went to 134 and it was stable too.
I went to 136 and started seeing one horizontal line in the center
At 137 the Screen Jiggled vertically and the lies increased to 5 -6.
I couldn't go higher then that.
I am running my monitor at 134 now but its only for testing and bragging rights.
I will run it at 60Hz normally.

[.

I was able to reach 120Hz with your method, I guess test mode was not enabled after all, even though it showed test mode. I'm happily sitting on 120Hz from the 100Hz limit i thought I had. +1

Hello, I was wondering if you guys could point me in the right direction. I originally was going to buy a Tempest 27" monitor but plans have changed and I am in the market for a QNIX. I have heard good things and like what I see so far. I am ready to buy today just want some input before I purchase.

What is currently the best priced/value/safest seller to buy a Perfect Pixel Matte Qnix QX2710 from? I have always heard good things about Green-Sum and hulustar as well. Last couple pages on here has someone receiving a bad monitor from bigclothcraft.

Once again, ready to buy today and would like to keep it under $350. Thanks for any help guys!

I ordered this one on Saturday: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Perfect-Pixels-Matte-QNIX-QX2710-LED-Evolution-ll-27-LED-Monitor-2560x1440-/321115357309?pt=Computer_Monitors&hash=item4ac3f7807d

It's currently on the truck for delivery. I'll report in when I've messed with it a bit.

Generally, the "perfect pixels" thing is a bit of a fib anyways and your chances of dead pixels are the same. I got this one because unlike many sellers, red-cap isn't charging any extra for the "perfect pixels" version. But do read the description for how they define that to see what I mean.

Basically don't pay extra for the perfect pixel nonsense.

can somebody confirm that there's a ~0.2 cm black bar going across the top edge so the panel actually does not fill the whole screen?

I realize the Perfect Pixel thing is sometimes a crock. If I can guarantee I will have absolutely no dead/stuck pixels then that is worth $30 to me. And yes I realize that it might mean 0-1 dead pixel guarantee over 0-3 or whatever. Yes I realize the pixels are extremely small on a 2560x1440 monitor. I am not an idiot. Just willing to pay more to guarantee I can receive the best quality monitor possible for the price.

Thank you very much for the link, it is on my list of possible buys now. Looking for more options/opinions. Thanks!

Cool; that's all good standard troubleshooting...but again I'm almost certain it is not Windows or any software. I do still have my GTX 480 I can try as well though at this point I am definitely leaning towards it being the physical integrity of the port itself.

No sounds like this means your panel needs to be raised. Mine does too (middle task bar icons lower than those on edges) but it is not so low that any image is cut off on the top.

I woud say dream-seller, was in constant contact with as the monitor i had chosen was sold out, so i settled for a Matte instead of Glossy, he/she was quick to reply back to any questions or concerns i had. I ordered a pixel perfect and i got a perfect monitor minus very minor bottom blb. 120Hz without a sweat.
