[Official] The Qnix/X-Star 1440p Monitor Club - Page 1756

post #17551 of 25924
looks like i can only get 105hz without getting the green scan lines on top. they flicker in and out. would adjusting timings or a better dvi cable help out? (running the stock dvi that came with the qnix)

using nvidia settings and not cru btw

Most see an improvement with different timings ... like these ...

Horizontal - front porch 48, sync width 32, back porch 12, blanking 92 and total 2652
Veritcal - front porch 1, sync width 1, back porch 3, blanking 5 and total 1445

I've seen some minor variations in Horizontal - back porch and blanking. I bet Lawson will have some suggestions.

Nvidia GPU @ 120Hz will look like this .... TY Lawson thumb.gif
Note: to read the timings (increase image) Rclick lower rhand corner "original" then click image again to magnify wink.gif



Quick Update ... I think there might be some truth to the older/original QX2710's being more consistent Overclockers! wink.gif
My recent ebay purchase of a NiB QNIX QX2710 E2 was from a guy that purchased it way back in August 2013 from Green-Sum ($269?) for his dad's.
He bought 2 at the time, thinking his Dad might like one, but lucky for me It sat in storage, until I bought it last weekend.

Wow I was very pleased ... No dead pixels / minimal BLB lower R corner only slightly visible on a black screen. Loaded the QNIX driver and went straight to the NV panel to see what she could do. After following this thread for a couple months I thought I'd be lucky to reach 110Hz and would have been OK with 96Hz. BAM 120Hz right out of the box without even touching the timings, confirmed in Widows and http://www.testufo.com/#test=frameskipping . Had some color shift, will work on that tomorrow, along with some real world gaming impressions. Another thing different from most other member descriptions is my DVI-D stock cable was a beefy 5'er not the commonly described 3' cable, nice for me. I also replaced the power brick cord with one from a Corsair PSU for the US plug (ditched the cheezy adapter). If I have a complaint so far I would take a "Glossy" over this Matte finish any day, but this Matte is an improvement over the older Dell/Samsung Matte finishes wink.gif

PS long day ... but should I try to lower my pixel clock @120Hz with different timings even though it's clocking fine without changing the timings? Some say you shouldn't be above 450? Is that correct?

450MHz is the max rated clock of the monitor's PCB, so anything past that is considered an overclock. I use these timings to get 120Hz, but it does go past the rated 450MHz. I will agree that the older Qnix's seem to be very robust (mine was also bought used and went straight to 120Hz without any dead pixels or BLB).

Here are two ICC profiles for 120HZ @ 120 lumens (10 clicks from dark screen) and 200 lumens (17 clicks from dark screen). YMMV of course but the difference between calibrated and uncalibrated is night and day for me.

could you please calibrate it for Adobe RGB 1998 @60Hz? I've been looking everywhere for it on the internet with no avail.. redface.gif

Samsung PLS panels can only cover the sRGB color space which is much smaller than the Adobe RGB color space, so making an ICC profile would be pointless.

No can do, The return shipment is on the buyer, which will cost me around 100+$.
I'll have to learn to love it. thumb.gif

Already got a Fedex tracking # and it says it's in shipping manifest stage. Hopefully the label is actually slapped on my box instead of just gathering dust.

I kind of expected an answer like that due to Qnix's narrow gamut.. However, I am able to notice a difference between sRGB and Adobe RGB 1998. The difference is very mild (1-2%?), yes, but it still worth to use it for photography than the sRGB. I'm mainly looking for a Spyder calibration for these settings as I'm going to use it for photography, and for that I need my screen colors to be as accurate as possible. This is definitely not a perfect screen for photography, but as a temporary solution, it does the job well.

Same here a few days back. I asked for tracking# and now saying they are out of stock. I am in the process of cancelling my order.

I already had enough of them last thursday. Canceled my order, got my money back very quickly (atleast thats something good). Ordered a monitor from storewithstory last thursday and it got shipped this monday and will probably arrive tomorrow even tho i had some problems with the german customs (wanted a proof of payment).
If I would have sticked with my order from kcci the monitor would probably still be in Korea.
