1. The older 30" panels are still using CCFL backlighting. They introduce two problems. The first is that they run hot, power hungry and throwing off a lot of heat. The second is that they are wide gamut monitors, giving widely oversaturated colours. I would avoid them as they are older, inferior technology and generally not suited to gamers.

Convening glossy, most panels are no longer glossy, even the glossy panels are just a piece of glossy glass on top of a mate panel.

The ds270 doesnt overclock, so if you want to overclock you'll need a qnix or xstar.

I did not notice the part about the 301 having the CCFL back lighting.... Dat power comsumption. I have had issues with other monitors in the past overheating so I would like to avoid that.

Also is the Monex M27QSM which is also according to NCX is a true Glossy monitor and shares the same PLS panel as the Qnix!...itis cheap and has better build quality then the Qnix but it does NOT overclock...however i believe if you could source a Qnix PCB Board i feel sure it would overclock and you would have yourself a cheap true glossy overclockable monitor thumb.gif

Here is NCX Unfinished review of the Monex M27QSM

http://wecravegamestoo.com/forums/monitor-reviews-discussion/14903-monex-m27qsm-review-glossy-2560x1440-pls.html

I have been doing some more research into the whole tempered glass/glossy thing and as much as a glossy panel looks great, I decided that it is not for me since I have a lot of external reflections in the evening where i keep my PC and not to mention the possible internal reflection between the glass and the panel. I guess i will be going with one of these panels. I am going to be ordering one of those Monoprice cables since I need a 6ft cable since a 3ft one is not an option for me and I hope this does not impact overclocking too much. As for the stock stand, I am going to wait and see on that before replacing it with a different one and I have a glass desk so the ones that clamp down is not an option. I hope to order one within the next week to so.

Thanks again everyone

any idea why the windows color profile would always go to default even though i set it to something else? i have to remove the custom one then and re-add it every time.

What are you using to set and apply your ICC profile?

Make your custom profile the default in windows color management... and use color Color Sustainer to apply your custom ICC profile

Download Color Sustainer here:

Something does sound wrong. Is the air being exhausted out of the back of the card warm or hot?

I ordered one too yesterday from accessorieswhole, and I glad I did cause they just raised the price today from $289 to $319.tongue.gif



Anyway, I need some inputs from fellow Qnix/X-star owners,

Is this a solid stand?

How about this cable for OC?

Thanks.

Yeah, hot hair is exhausting out the back, the the metal housing (it's a reference card) feels hot enough to cook an egg. At first I was thinking about taking off the Heat sync and applying Thermal paste, but i think that i will just send it back. If I were to screw it up, I would have a $512 brick laying around, and I would rather wait for shipping then wast that much money.

Sounds like you have either heavily overclocked the card or the case is inadequate and is feeding the card hot air. If the heatsink itself is hot, it definitely isn't the thermal paste (thermal paste issues would have the heat sink cold), just seems that either the card is not downclocking correctly (this would indicate the high idle temps) but doesn't explain the high 3D temps.

Or there's something wrong with the card... but I can't think of a problem with video cards that would cause your symptoms...

Could be a mine virus?

Interesting theory! I did encounter one on my boss' computer. But that should show up as even higher temps on idle, I would think?

^ download GPU-Z and check your GPU's activity. if something is using it, it'll show up there.
