No matter what the paypal says, if it was displayed in USD on ebay (be it uk or .com) thne it is NOT covered.
Extremely important to point out as some of you guys might be purchasing as I did.
Oh well I'll rely on 1 year with the seller smile.gif

Created a thread, so it doesn't get lost smile.gif!

The only thing I have ever bought any kind of extended warranty was on cheapo chairs I tried out, it was $15. Even that was a waste, since the material cracked even before a year was up.

Going to also make a really short video guide to OC the monitor - all credit to toasty though.
Links + credit will all go to him and his guide- but thought to make a comprehensible and easy to understand guide for noobs like me smile.gif!

Once you have SLI just make sure to run the full patcher.

Bought mine on Ebay.co.uk and paid USD which paypal then converted into GBP!... Squaretrade UK covered my monitor just fine!...all they needed was the USD into GBP receipt from paypal and it was a done deal and covered!.....Mine was advertised in GBP thought but it still went into USD before paypal converted it into GBP...so sounds crazy!

Unless you're reinstalling windows you don't need to reinstall the Qnix driver. You've only got to do the driver once.

Each time I install a new video driver I uninstall the drivers, disconnect the internet, run DDU in safe mode, reinstall drivers and reboot, reconnect internet, run the full patcher and reboot, then redo my custom resolutions in the Nvidia control panel.

Thanks again! I had no idea you'd reply! You helped me complete my battlestation with the best result possible (the perfect panel).

My final question is this:
I can get a stable overclock at 100hz and 96hz. Which should i leave it at?
I know the difference is minuscule, i was just considering films play at 24fps and 96 is a multiple of that.

So I highly recommend anyone with Qnix to give this new profile of mine a go. My Qnix is running @ 96hz and the profile is done to 2.2 gamma, 6.5k whitepoint and with 180cd/cm2 backlight, which in my monitor is 17 clicks from the minimum.

Qnix-96hz-180cdcm2-dispcalGUI.zip 11k .zip file

nice!

I'm undecided though!
Your colour profile give it a little bit more blue hue.
Not sure which is better or worse.

Any other colour profiles?
I'm at 17clicks at 96hz
