Yes, the MSI is setup the same as my EVGA so I know the QX2710 works in either (Both) DVI slots.

Thanks for your answer. Does it still overclock then? smile.gif

It's also new, un-opened, so you can get a square trade warranty with it too smile.gif (another reason why I haven't opened it) - we could open it "together" and test it together too. If there's any problems (if there's any dead pixels or BLB), I'll give a full refund immediately and then claim it on the original ebay seller I bought it off. Simple as that smile.gif

You should note, as pointed out by our user digital:
-Max OC 60hz - without skipping frames (in other words, above 60hz you would be skipping frames)
-Has artefacts at 1080P on the Xbox, but not at 720P or 1080i

Where are you located in the UK?

Just got the Qnix Evolution II Glossy from Amazon and I like it. I am blow away by the resolution and the "shine" but I have a pixel suck on red and some light bleed on the bottom right corner. I tried adjusting the screw on the back by the corner and it did nothing. I have it clocked at 96hz using Nvidia's custom resolution and am using a 24 gauge dual d-vi cord from monoprice. Just wish there was an easy fix to the bleed.

The monitor? Yes. I actually had two connected for a while, one running at 120hz, the second running at 110hz. I couldn't tell you which one was plugged into which DVI port.

Cos I've got a fair bit in the bottom left hand corner - it's not too bad, but it sure sucks on dark bits of the games I play. Does one simply tape around the edge of the screen with tape?

I would read the OP about BLB picture taking. It is way too hard to tell what is BLB and what is PLS glow. I suspect a lot of folks on here are seeing normal PLS glow and claiming they have BLB.

Reading back on this thread has me frustrated. Why don't people read or follow instructions? Why do people use my software and then ignore the information on the download pages?

On top of that, I'm tired of dealing with driver bugs, especially NVIDIA. The vast majority of people having problems with refresh rates have NVIDIA cards and didn't follow the instructions to work around the problems. NVIDIA has two ways to overclock, and people are managing to screw up both methods.

Even worse, the OP linked to my overclocking guide but ignored the information in it and wrote incomplete and incorrect instructions.

Why does the OP say it is not necessary to do any patch for NVIDIA when it says to use CRU? If you use CRU, you MUST patch the driver even with a single GPU. If you have GeForce Experience installed, you MUST follow the workaround mentioned on the CRU download page. People keep skipping these steps and assuming CRU doesn't work when it's NVIDIA's driver that's causing these problems.

If you have a 400/500-series GPU or if you have an SLI setup, you MUST use the full patch to get 110/120 Hz even if you're using the NVIDIA control panel instead of CRU. The Titan and the GTX 780 might not need the full patch for SLI, but I'm not able to verify that myself.

If you use the NVIDIA control panel instead of CRU, you MUST install the .inf file or some games won't use the custom refresh rate. This is mentioned in the overclocking guide, but so many people are skipping this step because the OP didn't include this important information. You can use qnix.zip for the QNIX. If you're using Windows 8 or 8.1, you also have to disable driver signature enforcement before you can install it.

If you have an AMD/ATI card, you don't have to worry about all that nonsense. Just patch the driver and use CRU to add the refresh rate. The only issue is video acceleration won't work, but all you have to do is disable hardware acceleration in Flash and any decoders you're using.

Updated to latest drivers per step 1:

re-patched the drivers and rebooted
patched: http://prntscr.com/32bpbz

Downloaded and installed and created a custom resolution using that program and then rebooted

http://prntscr.com/32bs6e

Then, when I try to create a custom resolution using the NVCP - I get this:

http://prntscr.com/32btjg

And then, when you do check the NVCP to see if you have the drop down to select 120hz. I do have it, like so: http://prntscr.com/32btuv


And finally, this is what it looks like when I have it all selected: http://prntscr.com/32bu5k

But, when you go and run the test - I get this.... every freaking time.... http://prntscr.com/32bubp


*** is going on! It's making me angry now lol. I followed the directions correctly.

Your screen shots show you have GeForce Experience installed but didn't follow the workaround:

If you choose to use the NVIDIA control panel instead of CRU, you need to install the .inf file.

EDIT: Yeah TF2 will not go past 60. LoL, Skyrim, BF3 does.

TF2 uses the desktop refresh rate. You should not be having problems with TF2 if you set everything up correctly.

You need to disable hardware acceleration in the Flash player settings. This is mentioned on the download page for the patcher.

I am on 8.1 too, with the spring update.
Make sure you go into device manager and (automatically) update the display driver there. This fixed a lot of issues for me.

It's working correctly for me now except for TF2 and that website - I followed the guide in the OP which as you also stated, is incorrect - I think that should be rewritten or acknowledged to also follow your directions with your program. I opted to solely use the NVCP and not the program . I did patch the drivers and everything is working as intended except for those 2 areas now.

EDIT: Installed the INF you provided as well as tried uninstalled Geforce Experience. The test site linked in the OP still does not go above 60hz nor does TF2 - Everything else I have tested against is working fine at 120hz.

Can someone else please test against TF2 for me?

after your post i really get why toastyx is upset. follow his oc guide and not the op and you'll be good. he even linked the inf you're asking for. just a hint "qnix.zip".

thumpsup for toastyx and thanks for not just baling out, like others did.
