Every monitor is different than other monitors. We can't know what profile would look white on your monitor until you try it.

I will upload the one I am using (not mine, and the owner deleted it for an updated profile that is too green). It's slightly blue as opposed to most profiles, which are either too green, too yellow, or too red (for my monitor). It's only for 96 Hz, though.

You might have to buy yourself a colorimeter... as far as i know no one who owns a glossy Qinx on this forum has a colorimeter...or i have not seen an ICC profile that clams it was calibrated from a glossy screen...colors from a glossy screen will project differently into a colorimeter than from a matte screen so it would make scene that you would need to find an ICC profile that has been calibrated on a glossy screen or buy yourself a colorimeter...also it depends which color point people have calibrated to...if you calibrated to 6500k its a dam sight cooler than an ICC profile that calibrated at 5000k which is very warm compared to 6500k...neither is the wrong white point if i was editing pictures in the evening i would calibrate to a white point of 5000k ..6500k is surposed to be the equivalent of day light and my native white point is 6551k and i always calibrate to my monitors native white point

This is an awesome step in the right direction! Thank you! I don't know what it is but my old Yamakasi Q270, my iPhone and my Macbook Pro has SUPER bright whites.

Anyone have any more "blueish" 96hz or 120hz profiles? I'd love to try them.

Lawson, what is the best colorimeter these days for a decent price? I'd rather try more profiles first but most are too orange/yellow/green for this panel. Riadon's looks pretty great though.

If you are an NVIDIA user, turning Digital Vibrance up to 57% or so in NVCP will help (at least in my case). Overclocking dulls the colors a bit for me.

I am happy with my Spyder 4 but i use it with dispcalGUI software and the spyder 4 express is cheap and uses the same sensor as the spyder 4 elite so getting a spyder 4 express and using it with dispcalGUI is a cheap option.....but there are others to consider also like the X-Rite ColorMunki....i personally am more than happy with my spyder 4 using it with dispcalGUI...anyhow try these below i created them at different white points you might find one you like?....let me know...i personally don't like any of them as i like using my monitors natural native white point calibrations

I tried turning up Digital Vibrance at one point and it looked great on the desktop...but in games even only at 53% i found that it made them look far more cartoonish for me..so i stopped using Digital Vibrance.

Lawson, I tried all those are they are WAY orange/yellow on my display. I need something with a much higher white point -- 6500K+ I am guessing.

So far, Riadon's 96hz profile is amazing but still a TINY bit yellow. I am super picky though thumb.gif

That being said, this glossy Qnix is GORGEOUS compared to my Matte Qnix.

They are the best i can offer you!.. there is 1 in there that i calibrated at 6500k it says in the ICC profiles name what white point i calibrated them too.. as i say if you are super picky you might want to buy a colorimeter than you know its perfect for your monitor and if you do get one just calibrate to your monitors native white point and i am sure you will be more than happy with the results thumb.gif

Another reason to get a colorimeter and do it yourself. My Colormunki Display will be here tomorrow, total price, $139..99 from ebay.
