I'm not even sure if the seller wants me to send the monitor back as they already refunded my money. Strange.

edit
nevermind they asked me to send it back.

I just put a new computer together but reused my Radeon XFX 7950. For some reason WIndows decided to bite the dust tonight, or so I thought. After formatting and reinstalling everything I plugged the 2nd Qnix into my 7950 and Windows would error at boot. Removed the monitor and it was fine. Played around with this and figured out how to run the 2nd monitor off of the onboard Intel HD 4600. Running that at a lower frequency gave weird looking artifacts. So I kept plugging the monitors in and switching ports on the 7950 until they were both finally recognized.

So now the main monitor looks right and the 2nd has a slight flicker, barely noticeable. The XFX has 2 DVI ports. I assume the 2nd one is single and that's why I am having these issues.

So what single slot video card, just as well upgrade from the 7950 if that is the fix, can run both monitors properly? Can I buy an adapter instead? The card has 2 mini displayports.


For those that want to get this working with onboard video, use DTD calculator from here http://www.avsforum.com/t/947830/custom-resolution-tool-for-intel-graphics-easier-overscan-correction

Use these settings from here http://forum.notebookreview.com/sony/602724-success-2560x1440-support-new-vpc-z2-dell-u2711.html
Reboot.

Plug the monitor into the DVI port on the motherboard.
Right click on desktop->screen resolution.
Click detect.
Click the another display not detected graphic until you find the one that says Intel HD under display dropdown.
Under multiple displays click try to connect VGA anyways.
Apply.
Under Multiple Displays select extend desktop to this display.
Apply.
And the QNIX should be found. Verify by going into Intel Graphics control panel.

For me the Intel control panel would not come up without selecting the connect VGA option. Custommodeapp would not let me edit the Intel graphic settings to get the right resolution and refresh rate. Something about exceeding maximum bandwidth. So DTD calculator forces the settings with a registry hack. I wonder if the DTD settings can be tweaked to make the monitor look halfway decent with onboard video?

This worked on an Asrock Z87E-ITX and Intel 4770k for one monitor and Radeon XFX 7950 as the primary monitor.

Hi guys, I'm really enjoying my Qnix with my pc but I'm starting to hate not being able to connect my xbox 360 to my monitor. What would be the cheapest/best way to be able to connect it? I already tried a HDMI to DVI-D cable, I get a few colored lines but not more than that. I'll probably have to buy a scaler right?

Sooo.... I think I will buy either the qnix or the x-star. Which one is irrelevant, I'll decide later. But what I do want to ask you is this:

If I manage to OC it to 120hz, will I be able to push 120FPS to the monitor? So I'll get 120fps which is so hyped by the TFT gaming monitors? Or will the low response time limit that?
What is the relation between response time and refresh rate here exactly? And which is more important for gaming?

AFAIK the input lag en MS response time is what delays you of your input being shown on screen. The refreshrate decides how many pictures a monitor wil show any given second (60, 96 or 120 are popular here).

Correct me if I'm wrong please. smile.gif

Response time is the inverse of the [maximum] refresh rate - so a panel with a 16ms response time would be limited to 60Hz refresh. I don't know of what the response time is of these panels, but it only needs to be 8ms to support 120Hz, and they seem to be at least that good. So you should be able to get a true 120FPS out of them.

Any ideas when TFT Central will complete their QNIX 10bit review?
I don't like the navigation of their site in all honesty.

You should be able to use a powered (mini) displayport to DL DVI adaptor. I've tested them on a 7970 with no problems.
