That is the big question right? If it turns out to be a big steaming pile of poodoo, I'll be asking for a prompt refund. This model came out of the blue and has some pretty lofty features and specs.. not to mention, most VA panels are extremely expensive.

Dubbed: I ordered the Tempest because I want a three way standoff this weekend. I PREFER glossy displays:

Qnix Glossy vs Tempest Glossy vs Qnix Matte True10. Also, the Tempest has a 14 day no risk return policy. thumb.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"

I've lowered my overclocking to 96hz and the freeze stop, that is so strange tongue.gif
thanks for the advice.

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

Nativedispcal120hz96hz200cdm.zip 26k .zip file

excuse my ignorance, but what do you mean by full patch ?
also, since i've lowered my overclocking to 96hz, can i still use the ICC you provided or you will link me the right one ?

So for your "normal" QNIX or Xtar go via them. But for the True10 - we only got 2 sellers.
I bought from one, and another OCNers bought from the other. So it will show a perfect representation of both.
Haha, hopefully we'll get better consistency with the "true10" monitors. I don't have high hopes for it being much better than other multi-input monitors - my "marketing-BS" sense are tingling off the charts!

Interesting. They're back in stock? The Overlord monitors had been out of stock for a long time.

We've never really figured it out why it is that multi-input monitors skip frames. The general consensus though is that there's a difference in how the monitors treat the signals.

Video Card sends a 90hz signal to the monitor.
Multi input takes the signal, passes it through an add-in board, which translates it through the scalar. Somewhere in this chain of events, one part is limited to 60hz (either programmatically or hardwired) and only outputs a 60hz signal to the panel.
Single input monitor take the video signal... and since every possible cost has been removed, the specific part that's limiting the signal is gone; so the original signal is passed through to the panel with minimal (if any) processing; resulting in both less input lag and the ability to run the panel at whatever refresh rate the video card is sending.

I see thanks for the info +rep

I hope I didn't make a mistake. But that said I'm not big on OCing it THAT much ie. to 120hz

.

And they sold out almost instantly. I snagged one right when I got the alert. I have been trying out a lot of monitors and video cards as of late because I am a freak and love to test out and report. Also, both IPSLEDMONITORS.com and Overlord have good return policies. I recently tried a Catleap 2B Extreme ($700) and the panel was defective so I sent it right back for refund.

I've decided and stuck with my video card (Gigabyte 780 Ti OC Ghz Edition) and so now it's time to test this weekend and stick with my display, return/sell the others. I am sticking with my fave display after this weekend! (Until OLED hits) tongue.gif

I'm sure you didn't. You're getting a 10bit-monitor with DisplayPort and an AHVA panel for cheap, even if it can't overclock. If it weren't a hassle, I would replace my Qnix with a "true10" simply because having 2 overclockable 1440p monitors is kinda pointless, and I want to hook up my laptop to it...

Haha, lucky! Good job on snagging one smile.gif

I'm really interested in the 10bit panel. I got really lucky with my "standard" qnix, but I could always use it as an accessory display or sell it to my friend who wants one at cost. He'd be perfectly happy with at cost since it is dang near perfect. Slight bbl, but no dead or stuck pixels!
