Ah that's great to hear, never really tried CRU much at all.

Yeah the supplied DVI cable would only screw in at the top for me also.

Yeah it's fine. I worked at it this time and got the bottom screwed in as well (when at first I thought it might not) so if anyone else has any "black screen" issues definitely check your cable connection. The pins on this other cable are definitely not long enough to reach and screw in at all, top or bottom.

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?

I'm sorry to quote this again to ask, but no one answered and I just wanted to know smile.gif. It's lessened at 96hz, also... I'd say at 112hz it's a couple of shades darker, while 96hz it's a shade.

EDIT: In fact I think it might be a slight bluish tint causing it to look darker, towards the upper right, not an actual brightness difference. I guess it's just a normal panel uniformity thing? Like this: http://hardforum.com/showthread.php?t=1510397

EDIT2: Yep, it's panel uniformity and common, per the first couple of pages of this thread (posts 40-120 or so) where people were comparing their gamma shift/uniformity with 40% gray pictures. Whew! Glad it's not a defect.

Well I forgot to mention when I posted that quote from the guy at [H] that the main reason he opened them (he has two) besides panel play was to remove the stand stem for "free standing desk lcd mounts from monoprice"

27" QNIX QX2710 Evolution 2 ll 2560x1440 Matte Screen WQHD Samsung PLS Monitor
or
X-STAR DP2710 LED 27" Matte Screen QHD PLS Computer Monitor 2560x1440 DVI-D

Two questions. Which has better 120hz chance? USA has no import fees correct?

Sorry if this has been covered before. I'm just ecstatic as I thought all the 1440p monitors were higher priced now and unoverclockable. I might buy two and use a active dp adapter.

It's a gamble either way model-wise as far as reaching 120hz, though I think all of them so far have reached 100hz+ and many have hit 120hz+. There are no customs/import duties/taxes/anything for those of us in the USA buying these, no. smile.gif

+REP I'm fine with 100hz actually but 120hz would make me very happy. 144hz would make me run a marathon of pure joy. These monitors should be considered high end for the next 3-6 years if the build quality is good.

I think when i press on the bezel at the top the backlight bleed dissipates a bit, that's something i can fix by relieving or adding pressure to the bezel? If i do decide to disassemble it, it's going to be a HUGE pain in the ass as my monitor is already wall mounted so i would have to take off the wall mount and what not to do this haha.

No, the fix is not 100% successful, probably not even close, backlight bleeding is probably a combination of both the panel and the monitor assembly, but it's very easy to try.

The monitor is very easy to open from the front, I kind of just pulled off the front part with my hand. I broke one of the plastic pieces that snap together and hold the front cover in place by doing this. This is not a problem, as there are many of them. And I did damage the warranty sticker at the bottom.

There is also a tape mod, that you could try, but for that you would need to remove the lcd panel. Seems like a lot of work.

Yeah, I have had mine at 112hz but I am testing 120hz now, been running for 30+ minutes solidly and will be trying it out over the next week-ish... the manual timings seem to have done the trick smile.gif. 120hz 1440p indeed will be high-end for a good while to come. Do read up on the FAQ's regarding build quality, it does vary a bit but the issues are generally minor.
