[Official] The Qnix/X-Star 1440p Monitor Club - Page 1657

post #16561 of 25902
So I don't post much, but I did a pretty thorough read of the thread before of this prior to picking up a Qnix. Unfortunately I ordered the True10 as I wanted multi-input, and even at 75hz OC (using CRU at least) I get some framedrops. I'm going to try the Nvidia method mentioned above since I'm running a 680. I did, however, order a single input 2710, and plan to keep both for a dual monitor setup. The issue I'm having right now is how to position them properly on my corner desk. I have a fairly deep corner edge, and actually use the corner as my monitor/keyboard space, so I'm looking for a mounting solution that would work. I've seen some dual panel free standing mounts that hold two 27" monitors, but I'm not entirely sold on it being balanced well. Do I get two single free standing mounts? Does anyone have experience with a dual monitor mount for these? I admittedly wasn't paying close attention to posts about mounts when I originally went through the near entirety of this thread, as I was more interested in knowing about the monitors themselves. Any advice here would be greatly appreciated!

Thank you for the answer!

I tried the above, but the problem still remains. When i do this test (http://www.testufo.com/#test=frameskipping) in firefox, explorer or chrome it says 60 fps and 60 hz and is green (valid). It seems very strange because the screen resolution in windows and geforce control panel is set to 2560 x 1440 and 96HZ. Anyone have an idea how to fix it? Thanks!

Well after trying it out with a long exposure camera I'm sad to say at 120hz there were frame skipping. There were gaps in the boxes when i took the photo... Good news is at 96hz the boxes line up without any gaps. I'm not using a super fast GPU only 670 SLI so for me its okay i guess. Since Bf4 at 96 fps seems to worked well without any tearing or other issues.

quote off.

He used a camera to test the framedrop. so I myself am waiting for more reviews biggrin.gif
At 120Hz no two boxes could possibly be lined up since for every two frames, one frame is skipped. However, at lower than 120Hz, you will be getting two or more boxes in sequence from time to time. At 96Hz, 1 frame is skipped every 2.33 frames so there will be at most 2 boxes in sequence. If there are 3, then there is no skipping from 96Hz to 60Hz. It might be skipping to >60Hz, or it might not be skipping at all.

That's why when you take a photo, you try and get as many boxes in sequence as possible. You are always unable to predict whether the box next to the last lit box will be skipped or not, but let's say you get 19 boxes lit in sequence at 120Hz? Suppose the 20th box is skipped, that monitor is basically skipping from 120Hz to 114Hz. Unlikely to ever happen with a native 60Hz monitor, so we conclude it's not skipping frames.

If you leave your eyes out of focus for a bit, you can easily see any skipped boxes whenever they occur.

I hope your friend took a photo that shows more than 2 boxes being lit in sequence.

Much more control, most likely better profiles. Awesome software. Also, try HCFR.

I bought a 2710 couple months ago and they gave me quite a defective unit, where I get streaks of backlight bleeding on dark screens.

I was none too thrilled, but they gave me $100 off the panel. They essentially bought me off. damn lol. I'm okay with it though. It's only on black screen that I see this. I guess I'll stay away from really dark games like Thief rofl.

Now it works as intended. I had to choose one of Windows 7 Aero themes... smile.gif
I can overclock the monitor to 110hz and im ok with that. Is it common that people can overclock to 120hz

Thanks again lawson for your help!

I got to 96Hz easily. I have not tried 120Hz except once. Got a ton of orange lines all over the screen. Lawson told me to try a profile he linked but I lost it so I can't. But I think the general consensus is that most do.

See, it's posts like this that scare me away from these Korean displays.

Any BLB? I am starting to doubt myself.

AMD cards require the "LCD standard" vertical blanking/total to reduce the memory clock when idle. Most of these monitors will have trouble with "LCD standard" at 120 Hz, but that shouldn't be a problem at 96 Hz where the pixel clock is lower. Horizontal values can still be reduced if necessary. I will add a note about this on the CRU and patcher download pages. This affects NVIDIA cards as well, but NVIDIA cards can handle some lower values.
