Good luck mate!

Christmas in March! applaud.gif

My wife is gonna kill me.. My Catleap Extreme is still sitting in the front room. The Overlord and TRUE10 should both be arriving from UPS at the same time LOL.

Let's hope the TRUE10s are all they claim to be. Want to get in there early if they are up to snuff. Can see them jacking up prices otherwise.

Right did some more digging around of the 10bit monitor - doesn't seem to be false - or else why would ALL sellers that have the 10bit one, especially big sellers and trusted ones, be lying - surely isn't worth their time?
See below:
http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/QNIX-QX2710-LED-Evolution-ll-DPmulti-TRUE10-Matte-Perfect-Pixel-27-Monitor-/111294825507?pt=Computer_Monitors&hash=item19e9b04423

One thing to note is that MOST or almost NO seller offers a "no dead pixel" policy on these 10bit ones.
If you ask me, these are a new QNIX panel, that's just off the shelves.
The 8bit one and the one that most people have are much more popular and "older".
Seems the 10bit one would be a different stock line and possibly from a different manufacturer.

You'll be able to see below:
there's:
-8bit single input -> 120hz OC capable
-8bit multiple input -> no mention of 120hz
-10bit multiple input -> 120hz OC capable.

If that's the case the 10bit is the daddy of all monitors (very much plausible, considering it is more expensive)

Yeah, I agree. It's insane that someone that speaks PERFECT English hasn't gone over there and worked with them on eBay/marketing. Maybe I'll take the job... wink.gif

Trying to get tech details, working with returns, etc with them is nigh impossible. I

only mini thing though - you'll need to speak Korean - at least to deal with other affairs internally.

Also in picture you can clearly see that NVCP is reporting 120hz however windows can not see it!..that picture was taken when i was using CRU to create my Custom refresh rates and attempting to keep Nvidia Geforce expereance installed!...However CRU uses EDID overrides that conflict with Nvidia Geforce expereance so you ether have to uninsatll Nvidia Geforce expereance or import the blank-extension.dat into CRU at the time of creating your Custom resolutions if you are using Nvidia! ...also its worth nothing that the below picture was taken using CRU with the blank-extension.dat imported into CRU!... However the blank-extension.dat is far from a perfect fix attempting to keep Nvidia Geforce expereance install while using CRU EDID overrides which still results in windows on many many occasions simply refusing to see your custom resolutions...which is why we now use a monitor driver using Nvidia cards which allows using NVCP to create our custom resolutions and them to be seen by windows and therefore in games without any conflicts what so ever!

I believe what you see in the picture below with NVCP reporting 120hz yet windows not being able to see it!... which means that neither will your games!... will be happening to you using EVGA precision with no driver patch...if you have set a 120hz profile in EVGA precision open up a game and turn Vsync on in game graphic settings use the lowest detail settings in the game so you are able to hit high FPS... now if your game reports 120 fps it is all workng fine!...however without patching the drivers which i am sure EVGA precision does not do then you will never hit 120FPS in any game using Vsync becaurse your custom resolutions without driver patches are simply not working.

Edit :However i would be very interested if it did in fact patch the drivers correctly as it would be another option for us all..i am going to do some research now on EVGA precision..thanks for the info thumb.gif

Edit 2:- I have found a post from Toasyx and now believe i was right and it does not work at least for SLI users and it seems it only works at lower refresh rates as i thought...ToasyX post below concerning the use of EVGA precision...it seems it only is using the regular patch and your refresh rates will indeed be capped at around 96hz if your using SLI...will do some more reading about though thumb.gif

More info here!

Quote from Toasyx on EVGA precision below:-

The patch is still needed in three cases:

1. SLI needs the full patch to work properly beyond 400 MHz pixel clock.
2. Some 500-series cards are limited to 400 MHz without the full patch. 600-series and newer cards are not limited.
3. CRU needs the regular patch to add resolutions beyond 330 MHz pixel clock. The regular patch won't break HDCP.
600-series and newer cards without SLI don't need the patch when using the NVIDIA control panel or the EVGA pixel clock feature.



Edit 3:- Another quote from that forum below

"So I got my Tempest in just a few hours ago and the first thing I did was try this utility to see what it could do. I have found that it looks like it let you go to 120 +, but in reality it caps at 96hz. even when I select 120 or 128 (129 is where my panel starts to flicker) it says it is pushing a 480+ MHz pixel clock, but if I toggle the selected display to my old monitor and back, it shows 96Hz framerate at a 390MHz pixel clock. Off to try Toasty's now!"

Thanks lawson for all that info! 96hz and higher does however show up in windows display settings and NVCP w/out patch for me as well as in the in game menus, but I'm not running SLI...yet biggrin.gif. I plan to order my 2nd 780 this friday however so I will probably be re-installing that patch. I will try the vsync as you mentioned and see what fraps is limiting it at. I'm a bit confused however about what you are saying in regards to conflictions with GeForce Experience (the EDID overrides and blank-extension.dat---what are these?).

I also had a question about higher grade DVI-D cables. I bought this one from amazon: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0010CSDM4/ref=oh_details_o03_s00_i00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 and at the time I didn't know about the evga pixel clock so I was using the patches and CRU and running at 96 hz. I was in a game of BF4 and switched out the cable that came with the monitor for the new one and couldn't get the monitor to display a picture. Is there something i missed about the one I ordered? I even tried later uninstalling the patches and setting everything back to 60hz then hooking up the new cable and still couldn't get it to work mad.gif

Question on this......Ive seen 2 different reviews of this same monitor...one appears to have PWM and one did not...so is a crap shoot weather or not I get it?


Also it seems the glossy ones are getting harder to find..are they running out or something?

UPS sucks, not because I never get my items, its that my UPS truck comes late in the day. Last 3 deliveries for me were around 3:30, that's early, heh. Heck my last FedEx delivery came at 8:30.
