So, I guess I don't actually have a stable 110hz. When gaming I get a solid two inch darker bar that is purple on the right side of my screen. Is there a setting I'm missing or is this just my monitor saying no to the 110hz?

Has anyone been able to achieve 120hz after swapping to a higher quality cable? Or is that another myth?

No one can guarantee that you will hit 120hz with the best cable on earth!...And some clam good quality cables can make no difference at all and others disagree!!...However all i can tell you is that i can hit 128hz using this cable linked below but i can not hit 128hz using the stock cable!...A better quality cable has always got to be a better as far as i am concerned and if nothing else they look bloody good thumb.gif

If I want a multi input version, what would be better? A qnix True10 or an evolution II DPort? Or something else, I don't care a lot about overclocking

Guys I don't know what's going on with my QNIX so I decided to post here. I've been running this OC'd at 115 Hz and I seem to be having issues with Flash. Sometimes there are youtube videos that only show as black or I get this video error which looks like this: http://i.imgur.com/JKq1rt4.jpg

Has this happened to any of you? There is still sound coming from the computer and I have to alt+F4 Chrome(also on Firefox) so that it goes away and the display comes back on. The weird thing is that it doesn't happen to all youtube videos but it seems to be random.

I'm wondering, is this a problem with the monitor OC or with Flash itself? I tried installing/reinstalling Flash over and over and it doesn't seem to remedy anything. I also decreased the OC to 96 Hz and I still get that screen. I am using a Powercolor 7950 as my GPU.

Sounds like you are having the known issue of video playback getting borked using the ATI patch.

Is there a option for Nvidia cards to reduce dvi noise? I see in the guide that ATI has it, but can't find the option for Nvidia.

I'd really like at least 110hz. I understand it probably doesn't actually make a difference, but I want it damn it! smile.gif

I did see the part where it was bent at was able to bend it back, I was afraid of using too much force but was able to get that lower section flat. One thing I forgot to do was take the tape off when i got it all back together stitchfacesmiley.png I was way too tired when I was working on this. I will say though that the BLB is gone that section. I will take the tap off when I open it to replace the stand. I am thinking about getting the monoprice one here http://www.monoprice.com/Product?c_id=108&cp_id=10828&cs_id=1082808&p_id=5970&seq=1&format=2 I will have to put some rubber feet on it to keep it from sliding off my glass desk. The stock on the Qnix makes my monitor sit off center.

Initial before the fixes


Attempted fix one.... FAIL doh.gif (camera phone pic)


After the frame fix

I have been messing around with overclocking for the past day or 2 and mine reaches 96Hz without any issues (no skips, etc) via Nvidia control panel but started to hit a wall going over that. I am playing around some custom timings right now and will report back later.
