Multi-input monitors drop the extra frames when overclocked, so they won't look as smooth when set over 60hz and they also have at least a frame of input lag. Do not trade.

So I found a local guy who was willing to trade his Qnix for my Crossover and some cash, but when I saw the monitor, i noticed that it has a working OSD, which I thought it didn't have.

( also multiple inputs, I thought they were only HDMI )

Also, when he had it set to 120hz, it didn't look smooth at all, and even at 90, my 60hz still looked smoother.

( and for reference, my roomie has a 120hz asus monitor, so I know how 120hz is supposed to look )


should i go for it, or just keep with my tried and tested crossover.

Sounds like a multi-input version of the Qnix, which would mean it isn't overclockable (which would probably explain the smoothness issue as it would be dropping frames). I think I'd stick with the Crossover.

Anybody know where you can get an extra thumbscrew for the base of the Qnix monitor? I don't know what they are called exactly and can't find it online.. mad.gif

Yay fixed sorted out what was wrong with my Graphics cards and they are working fine now...very fast indeed..GPU-Z and the AMD R9 290 cards conflict coursing shuddering and rapid frame rate loss....Turn off GPU-Z monitoring and no throttling on heaven 4.0 and 120 FPS benchmark result with heaven 4.0 maxed out at 2560x1440 very happy indeed biggrin.gif

No Throttling!..the line in the middle jammed up at the top was the one hour benchmark!

I have it set to "no scaling" in NVCP yet it still scales.

Yessir -- Thanks for asking. Trying to take care of family and tech is a tough balance -- Bwahahhaha! tongue.gif

As of right now, I am sticking with my Qnix. Even with the glass, I have been playing games tonight and I LOVE IT. I just wish I could tell if it was matte or glossy behind the glass without tearing it apart.. mad.gif

It is not a hard job at all to find that out!...unscrew the 4 screws at the back of the monitor along the bottom Edge...then pull the bezel off with your fingers....then pop the panel up and unplug the cable at the back of the panel...lift the panel out of the case take it to a nice big dinning room table and lay it flat down face upright...take the 2 rails off the side of the metal frame as pictured below from when i straightened my my frame to fix my BLB.....once you have the rails off it becomes clear how to take the metal from off the panel....once the metal frame is off the panel you will see a sheet of glass or no glass...no glass it true Glossy!...whole job will take you 20-30 mins to strip down inspect and refit thumb.gif

Hmm. Think I might wait in the hope they release single input TRUE10. My 22" Sammy still has some life in it.
