Won't be as pretty, but will it be satisfactory in your opinion? Or not any better than the stock base? ... I have no immediate plans to use a fully raised portrait mode, which is maybe why they made the base so big in the 1st place redface.gif


Yes i believe it will be perfectly stable ....also a on the area where you cut feet you could also quickly file and sand that area smooth and nip down the hardware store and buy a can of satin black paint and spray the sanded down area and no one would ever no you have even cut it shorter ! thumb.gif

Just wondering if anybody else who has used an after market stand found that the screw holds are shorter than the screws that came with your stand?

I am using a stand off an HP L1950 but the screws that where in that stand/monitor are longer than the holes in this monitor.

Does anybody know what screws I would then need?

Seems like ta-korea is pretty serious about pixel perfect, mine has 3 dead black pixels in a line and another dead white pixel, sent him a message about it.

He responded saying they do test the monitors and that mine probably got damaged in shipping, he offered a $50 partial refund or a replacement monitor.

Figured I would take the refund, can't be bothered waiting for another monitor and it almost covers my £35 customs charge.

I also bought a new DVI-D cable but it doesn't work with the qnix, the monitor just loops through a test pattern of different colours. Cable works fine on my other monitor, has anyone experienced this before?

Yes the screws with my monoprice stand were too long, you don't need different screws just some washers to fill the gap.

The only solution ToasyX could come up with allowing CRU EDID overrides to work correctly and not conflict with Nvidia Geforce Experance or indeed Samsung Magician was to uninstall Nvidia Geforce Experience and samsung Magician .. " which i can report works fine and windows always can see your custom resolution made in CRU"...or keep them installed and import the blank-extension.dat into CRU when making your custom resolutions!.. However this is far from perfect and windows on many occasions will still refuse to see your custom resolutions as conflicts still exist!...AIso i am only trying to help you but believe me if you are using CRU EDID overrides and you still have Nvidia Geforce Experience installed and have not even imported blank-extension.dat then windows will not 100% of the times be seeing your custom refresh rate even if NVCP reports it is working!..however using a monitor driver and NVCP to create your custom resolutions all of your games will see your custom profiles all of the time!...Using CRU you will think everything is working just fine when you looking into NVCP and see your custom refresh rate sitting there!...but it is not being seen by windows!..And if windows is not seeing it then your games will not be seeing it!

Edit:- This picture below was also taken with the blank-extension.dat imported into CRU!

Example:-




Using my monitor driver file and using NVCP to create our custom resolutions we have over come this problem and now all of us Nvidia users do not have any more of the above problems!...And we now have no conflicts what so ever and we do not have to uninstall Nvidia Geforce Experance anymore or Samsung Magician if installed or any other software that might conflict with EDID overrides....And Also the OP needs updating to reflect this!

Yeah that's really weird. Like I said before, I'm using the driver patch + CRU method and I'm getting 100Hz in all the games that I have installed. Even if the refresh rate is not indicated in the in-game video options (ex - 2560 x 1440 @ X Hz,) I can clearly tell whether my game is running at 60Hz or at 100Hz, as 60Hz feels like I'm dragging my mouse through mud and 100Hz is smooth as silk. Vysnc is an excellent indicator of what the refresh rate is. If I enable vsync and look up at the sky or at a wall for example, my FPS shoots up to 100FPS and stays there. I've tested in this in each and ever game that I've installed. Vsync essentially caps the max FPS to the refresh rate in case you didn't know (100Hz = 100FPS, 96Hz = 96FPS, 60Hz = 60FPS, etc.,). Anyhow, I agree that the OP should be updated with a clearer and more up-to-date set of instructions. I might actually give your method a try because the particular driver patch I'm using (ToastyX's full patch for SLI) borks HDCP so I'm unable to watch Blurays on my computer unless I stream using MakeMKV -> VLC. Lastly, thanks for all your contributions to this thread, lawson.

Holy crap! Just got mine. BBL is barely noticeable at all, and what I thought was two dead pixels were just specs of dust! biggrin.gif Sadly, it is a matte panel, but it'll do.

Oh dear - how much did you pay for yours?
I sent an offer and the description clearly states - no dead pixels.

Not a "he" but a "they" - been replied to by different people, by the same seller.

EDIT:
Found a video about the red cap seller:
