[Official] The Qnix/X-Star 1440p Monitor Club - Page 1687

post #16861 of 25891
I have a question, I love my qnix evo 2. I have had it since maybe last august. My question would be why are people buying these now, with decent (reasonably cheap) 4k monitors coming in about 6 months? I would just wait.... in fact I am waiting for a 27" IPS/PLS 4K @ 60hz for <700

Because people may not have the money to spend or just don't want to spend that much on a monitor. Not to mention having the graphical horsepower needed for 4k isn't exactly menial.

Perosnally, I bought one of these because at 290, it was perfect for my secondary set up that I mainly use for photo and video editing.

That, and the fact that the single inputs ones overclock. 96Hz on an 27" IPS is nice.

Unfortunately they don't overclock on 290/x for a lot of people. I used to be able to overclock when I had xfire 7950's... I get crazy distortion if I overclock on my 290x xfire.

I have to pick between ocing the monitor, or the video cards rolleyes.gif

Did Nvidia get rid of the dual link 330MHz pixel clock cap in their recent drivers?

Can someone who used the no patcher method post a photo from the frame skipping test showing 96Hz or 120Hz?

Look here, only NVCP using on a 780 Ti (latest drivers installed).

I must be lucky then, mine overclocks right on up to 120hz with my xfired 290x's

That picture doesn't really show anything. The valid means the sync is valid, but you need to see the boxes to know if it is actually overclocked and not skipping frames.

He's showing that the custom resolution set via NvCP is working, not whether the monitor is frameskipping or not. In that case, a screenshot is enough.

Well - my monitor has shipped from ta-Korea ; apparently yesterday but EMS tracking hasn't updated yet.

So fingers crossed will be here next week!!

Thanks for your reply. I'm a newb when it comes to calibrating but since the QNIX has an OSD shouldn't I at least try and manually set it to the same default color settings as they X-Star (no OSD) at 100% brightness? If so do you know where I can get the default RGB and Contrast info for the X-Star?
There are no defaults with an OSD-less monitor. Panels vary between the same monitor model, this is expected. The colorimeter helps you start by getting the same whitepoint on both via first setting the RGB channels to suitable positions, then making a color profile that the PC loads at the graphics cards side to correct the rest. Both the Qnix and the X-Star get calibrated to a reference point but before you start, the colorimeter would have helped you adjust the RGB sliders on the Qnix to get an accurate white. With the X-Star you will have to resort exclusively to a software color profile, as do all single-input Qnix / X-Star users.

That would be PERFECT for you, larrytek7. We'll help you get good profiles and then you can return the Colormunki.

@snapdragon, I'm hoping it's the Colormunki Display? Because that's an excellent sensor.
