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
