[Official] The Qnix/X-Star 1440p Monitor Club - Page 1532

post #15311 of 25891
Figured I would post since this thread has been so helpful with getting everything set up with my new Korean pls monitor.

I ordered the Ultimate Pixel Perfect from excellentcastle for $340. It was definitely worth it, seeing as how i received just what the title said i would. Not a single dead pixel and some very minor BLB on the bottom left, but not enough that I'm going to risk opening up the monitor. I was pleasantly surprised by the stand. I kept reading people saying how bad the stand was. I have had no problems with it whatsoever, in fact it seems to be better than the Dell S2340M that I have flanking it.

My only problem thus far has been this: I recently got a new gpu, a Gigabyte 780. When I had my old gpu I was able to overclock my monitor to 96hz, any higher and I would get artifacting. Now with my new gpu I can no longer overclock. The overclock would be fine while on the desktop, but whenever I played a game about 1-2 minutes in my gpu drivers would crash and I would have to restart my computer. I clocked the monitor back down to 60hz and the problem went away. I tried searching this thread, but with 1500+ pages that's a lot of searching. If anyone has any ideas or solutions that would be great, thanks in advance!

However, I am facing a strange ass problem, once i connected the monitor for the first time, my pc started to suffer from freezing spikes every 15 seconds, the spike last for 3 seconds then everything returns to normal, checked the task manager for any suspicious Software, still nothing to see, that really blow my mind, before using the monitor everything was fine ??

Furthermore, i've noticed that the colors in my monitor needs alot of calibration, in comparison to my second monitor (HP IPS panel), the white in my X-star looks so much dark and almost Green !!
i've tried to install the Color profiles mentioned in OP, but most of the links there are broken, could anyone please direct me to a downloadable color profile for 120Hz.

Hint, i am on SLI if that could matter.

Sorry for bad English, trying my best tongue.gif

I would say - get it out of SLI, to eliminate any SLI problem for starters.
Then reduce it to 96hz OC.

If the problem still persists, go back to 60hz.
If the problem still persists after that, send back the monitor as it would seem defective if it looks "green"

HI i am very happy you are pleased with your new Ultimate Pixel Perfect from excellentcastle!...and welcome to the club thumb.gif

Now how are you over clocking your monitor?...are you using CRU or the monitor driver method using NVCP?...also which patch are you using?..the full patch needed for SLI or the regular patch or no patch at all?...also you say you just bought a GTX780 i am guessing this is a single card and you are not ruining sli?

I stand firmly and very much true to my "analysis" or "thoughts" about Asus.
I heard in the USA it's better because they care more about the customer, but in the UK - not a flying monkey could be given. I even went to trading standards to take them to court over a certain item. When I was told: "As they're a Taiwanese company, you'll have to contact their HQ via a letter informing them of your decisions you want to take legally" I gave up.
That's how much I hate Asus. Crap-sus sorry.
Let's see.

EDIT here are members that bought from red cap: Not sure where's the huge concern?

Yet, you kevin keep slandering the seller?

Yes, I will, since:

I've followed these monitors since we first knew about them (so far back in fact that I have an original Catleap "2B") and by far, without question, red-cap has the most negative experiences and outright "screw the buyer" incidents that I can remember. Yes, most of the time, he's perfectly fine as a seller; but those times when you *do* need him to step up to the plate? Not so reliable then.

Oh, and he was the first person I remember to implement the "refund a bit of money per stuck pixel if you bought a perfect pixel" scam. That sealed the deal for me.

Fair enough - thanks for the heads up.
I'll definitely give you all my experiences that I have, be it positive or negative.

SO far it's only positive from me.
He was the ONLY seller to get back to me, very fast, and reply to my questions one a personal level. He wasn't one that responded as if he worked for a company, and didn't really know what they were selling. Unfortunately, with excellent castle I got that experience. No matter how their monitors might be, but my experience with their customer service was hit and miss (not bad by any stretch of imagination, but that's what I'm saying) - different people replying, different answers being given - just made me confused.

PS. all those linked posts seem to be from one user or yourself. I'm not defending the seller, but saying that would have been an isolated case.
Let's face it all of us are taking risks when buying from ANY seller (especially on the dead pixel policy).

Now if I was in that position (which I have been) I would call ebay, file a claim on ebay and would get my money back in days.
I had a problem with a seller where I bought an amp - the amp was defective - I had paid CASH IN HAND - ebay said: "we're sorry for the problem, next time use paypal for protection, we'll refund you the difference".

EBay refunded me in FULL the amount for the amp and gave me a free postage slip return for the amp.
Till this day, the amp is STILL STUCK at the depot as the seller never picked it up.
The seller lost no money either though - ebay directly paid me via paypal.
Thus the winners are the seller, the losers are ebay and the guy that got nothing was me.

So there's always a way - especially when you got a "written agreement" and/or a description.
If the seller breaks the agreement in anyway, you're in your right to claim it via paypal and ebay directly.
Although it is ALWAYS suggested to contact the seller first (which is what I always do in disputes)

Are you using the full patch?...nvlddmkm-patcher-full.exe....and i know it sounds silly but your cable is on tight and you are using a duel link cable right?

Also you are more than welcome to use my 120hz or 96hz ICC profiles that i calibrated at a brightness of 200 cd/m which is aboiut 18 clicks up on the BRI+ button and 17 clicks from a black screen for the 96hz profile

Two posts were from the same guy, but the second post was his experience with other buyers from red cap messaging him that they had the same experience.

You're covered by paypal, definitely; the problem for the buyers in their cases was that the protection window is 45 days; and in all those cases, the buyers were beyond the 45 day window when problems occured, or the dispute was extended beyond the 45 day window, whereupon he dropped out of sight.

then seeing as it wasn't DOA, and it was working and/or the buyer didn't take action in the first 45 days - that's the buyers fault.

You go and buy a motherboard now, or ram, or any part in your PC.
You have it for 14 days (some are lucky enough to get 30days) and if ANYTHING goes wrong AFTER those days, then you have to sort it out with the manufacturer and NOT the reseller.
Ie. after 30 days I would have to go to QNIX.

I'm literally taking the gamble here that the monitor will work, for a long period of time.
But when you buy ANYTHING on ebay you HAVE TO be aware of this. It's simple international buying and selling rules.

Ebay sellers are often NOT authorised sellers. To add tot hat they are an A- stock - "defective" from day1.

So, we're all taking a gamble again. I wouldn't go as far as saying due to one buyer experience, we can base it.
I've even proven there's more positive that's been said about the seller vs bad.
Again, I really REALLY REALLY couldn't give a crap about which seller I buy from. I'm definitely not defending ANY of the actions taken by any seller that acts like that. But in fairness it's in his right to do so.

Your monitor doesn't OC that high. Try lower.
Or try another DVI cable (far fetched but could work)
