[Official] The Qnix/X-Star 1440p Monitor Club - Page 1483

post #14821 of 25935
Finally got my "pixel perfect" qnix from ta-korea, after UK customs held it hostage for over a week. Had to pay £21 VAT and £13.50 to parcelforce for their silly fee.

One dead white pixel near the top and about 3 dead black ones in a line near the bottom, not too noticeable.

Not surprised it wasn't pixel perfect as it was the same price as any other qnix.

Backlight bleed is very minimal, a bit in the bottom left and top right but not really noticeable at all.

Does anyone have a recommendation for a stand that can be height adjusted very low? Where I was planning on putting the monitor won't work as it's literally just an inch too tall... so if theres a good stand I could buy that can be put very low it could fit smile.gif

I went back and looked at the bench posted for the CF vs SLI, we definitely misread it. In my mind it didn't make sense the single 290x beating the 770 but losing in CF. Yet I didn't put 2 and 2 together. But like I also said, it should win, its a way more expensive setup.

So what really is the main differences between the Qnix and the Xstar? All I can find is the price difference.

The text on the bezel is the only difference.

Just played around with overclocking, at 120hz I get green flickering lines near the bottom (with lawsons timings).

110hz is stable and doesn't seem to have had any noticeable effect on the colours, I downloaded lawsons colour profiles while I was waiting but it looks like I won't need them!

Maybe another cable will let me hit the magical 120hz...

I understand that it requires dual-link DVI to run at best performance thumb.gif

What i'm wondering is, would it work for the DVI - HDMI cable at normal performance ?

I want this solution temporary until I buy the basic gaming computer with of course GPU that support DVI ..

I read this " .. The biggest problem with DVI is that it doesn’t support HDCP encryption by default, so if your hardware only includes DVI ports, you may not be able to playback full HD Blu-rays and other HD content." at

is lawsons a program for color enhancement of profile files?

It won't run at normal performance via HDMI -> DVI. You may be able to run a custom resolution at reduced refresh rate (eg, 2560x1440@30hz).

Not sure why your like says that, but DVI definitely does support HDCP.

Anyone know a method on how to unscrew vesa mount from this monitor? Mine seems to be stuck, as the part where the screws torque into, seem to just be torquing with the screw rather than against it, causing each screw to continuously spin..

So I OC my Q-nix to 120hz, seemed fine, no visual problems, but my GPU, the fan speeds increased, and it started generating lots of heat. This resulted in it working for a few mins then the display is no longer detected and I have to restart my PC. When I try to play any kind of game, the increase in heat is more rapid and my whole PC crashes.
I have just recently upgraded my GPU, on my old one the best I could get was about 96Hz, but with my new one, I pushed it to 130 Hz before I wimped out, but yet with my old one, when I OC'd the monitor, it never started generating more heat, and it didn't crash when i tried to play a game...
I'm confused, I don't get how the refresh rate of my monitor would cause this problem?
Any suggestions on how to fix this?

GPUs work harder to produce a high refesh rate. that why the heating up. maybe do some work in your case with cable management and get some better fans to exhaust the heat better.
