Just ordered the Monoprice stand, lets just call it Bigfoot. I could actually drive over and will call it, but gas would cost me more than the $5.90 shipping, it will be here tomorrow.

So I just got my 27" Qnix 2710 Evolution II monitor. First off let me say, I've been reading this forum for quite sometime while debating if I should pull the trigger or not. Not only was I inspired to join the forum (rare for me), but I also went ahead and bought the monitor off ebay from hulustar. I can't believe how fast it shipped, I ordered it last Thursday and it arrived to my door in Michigan on Monday (5 days). I've been reading a handful of guides on how to overclock it to 120hz, and after a whole bunch of turmoil and trial and error I finally got it to work. 120hz steady, and games run it at that refresh rate as well. 2560x1440 wallpapers look amazing, and I seem to of found a solid color profile as well. Here's my issue, it may be a noob one at that, but it's causing me some grief.

When I first boot my system, it loads with the 2560x1440 @ 60hz by default. As soon as I touch my Asus GPU Tweak (usually to adjust GPU fan speed), the screen flashes and I get a GPU Tweak message asking if I want to keep the current refresh rate. I click OK. I go into the Nvidia control panel, and my resolution is 2560x1440 @ 60hz and 16bit. I change to 32 bit, and the 120hz option becomes available. Once I apply, I lose my color profile. I have to open the DisplayProfile program I downloaded and reload my color profile. Once all is done, everything is beautiful.

Maybe it's wishful thinking, but is there a way to have my custom settings (2560x1440 @ 120hz 32bit) load by default instead of having to reapply them every time I reboot? This is a new rig as well, so I'm constantly rebooting while installing programs and it's getting rather annoying. I'd really appreciate any input

My Specs:
Intel I7 3770k
Asus Z77 V-Pro
Asus GTX 680
8GB Gskill RipJaw DDR3 1600
Samsung 840 Pro 512GB SSD

Hello everyone! Firstly, thanks for this great thread, I am learning a lot from it.

I mostly play flight simulators and I was thinking of upgrading my triple-monitor setup and was looking at 27" monitors at 2560x1440 resolutions and came upon the Korean monitor concept and stumbled onto here. I am currently reading my way down the thread but still at page 15.

I was thinking of buying 3 27" monitors but it seems like a setup for one monitor will not be good for another. Or each monitor will OC to different levels. Or have different alignment issues. I wonder if anyone here has bought 3 monitors for a three-screen setup (I know at least a couple members have) and what issues there are trying to make 3 screens work nice with each other?

Also, you guys seem to be really hardcore with your monitors; I've never had to color-adjust mine. Can I ask why you would OC a monitor from 60Hz to 120Hz?

Has anyone had to send back their monitor and how did they do it? I see some that guarantee zero bad pixels and also say they pay for return postage (eBay sellers).

Lastly, are there any methods or tricks or instructions to give to sellers so that I don't get ripped off in customs/taxes? I live in the UK.... if that fact isn't obvious yet!

I actually have three of the QNIX 2710's. I haven't tried overclocking above 96hz, but all three run at 96Hz with no problems. You will need a very good video card (or SLI/Crossfire) if you're going to try playing games at high settings at 7860x1440. My first one was a Pixel Perfect, the other two were not. All look great with no bad pixels or noticeable backlight bleed. The colors are off slightly between the first one and the other two, but I find that once I'm in a game, I don't notice it at all.

Good luck with whatever you decide.

Thanks for the help guys...

Unrelated... My triple monitor stand comes with bolts that are either too huge, too big, or too small to use the spacers...

See pic of mount with 'smaller' screws, that are still not small enough:



Image of smaller screw in spacer:



And then, this.. After taking apart my Qnix.. I noticed this incredible bend in the frame.. It's quite remarkable.. There's no way I just did that, right? It's the flaw of these monitors, and why they're cheap, right? Tell me I'm right please, and that I didn't just bend this thing...

My triple stand didn't have any spacers, but the screws were too long. Ended up going to a local hardware store and buying shorter ones (after trying to tighten one that was too long and having to take the monitor apart (again) to remove it.) Interesting enough, the screws worked fine on one of the monitors, but not the other two.

Fixed my own problem. Seems everything loads the way it should by default, for some reason Asus GPU Tweak tries to change my settings back. It still flashes the screen and asks if I want to keep the refresh rate (apparently GPU Tweak is the culprit changing it back to 60hz), If I just click no it flashes again and everything is gravy. Annoying none the least, but at least I don't have to reload everything

GPU Tweak sucks, if you really need something for overclocking etc, get something else. If you don't, then just remove it.

I'm not overclocking, I just like having control over the fan speeds and temperature monitoring. I used to have a GTX 470, and am forever paranoid of heat issues. If you know of another program, I'm all ears
