If these timings work you can then try to up your values in an attempt to allow your ram to down clock on the desktop...Many Nvidia cards users can use default timings and hit 120hz which will give them a pixel clock or around 480mhz...However i do not know how you have hit a pixel clock of 497mhz?

Also yes you most likely will be able to keep these timings when you are running SLI you will just need to use the full patch


Hi lawson, i tried these timings before for 120hz but they didn't work. fortunately though, they were fantastic for 110hz. only problem for me is that my gpu doesn't downclock when i have 110hz as a setting. i have a gtx 780 ti. would you happen to know the remedy for that?

EDIT: Oh, and how does changing the "pixel count" and timings affect how many pixels are on your screen? is there a difference in image quality as well?

A while back i saw something about running Nvidia cards and updating drivers on these monitors....There is currently a new Nvidia driver out and i cnt remember what/what not to do before installing said driver....

If anyone can point me in the right direction i would be grateful,thx in advance....thumb.gif

I have to be honest that I'm not really sure what all those settings mean though, so I'm not sure how I could try tweaking it more!

To be honest, it still looks great at 60Hz, but having the option to go up to 120 for gaming would be awesome... I'll keep tinkering and would welcome other suggestions biggrin.gif

Sorry to here you are still getting scan lines at such low refresh rate as 80hz!....Have you tried using the patch?....Also I would be inclined to try another duel link cable or even try another DVI-D port on my GPU if you have one and check that the cable is tight and secured properly as i have never known one of this monitors to not be able to hit 80hz.....Most if not all of theses monitors can hit at least 96hz!.... i believe you may have another problem going on.

Well i am glad they helped you hit 110hz it sounds that your monitor may not be capable of hitting 120hz!....Not all can!...Some have managed to hit 120hz by changing cables... Higher quality cables have helped in some cases but is never a guarantee...Also a simple DVI-D port change on the GPU has enabled people to hit 120hz!...However 110hz is more than fine i run 110hz 24/7 even though my monitor is more than capable of hitting 120hz so i would be happy with 110hz and stick with it!

Ok so now i want you to try theses timings below which should allow your cards memory clock to down clock on the desktop at 110hz...The lower vertical blanking values that you use does not allow enough time to change the memory clock without corrupting the screen and this is why your memory can not down clock as it is right now!...However those timings lower the pixel clock at 120hz much closer to the 450mhz limit at 120hz and will give a very strong signal which will enable some that can not hit 120hz to indeed hit it!....But 5 lines of vertical blanking (1445 total) doesn't give enough time to change the memory clock without corrupting the screen...but most will be happy to change to 60hz or even 110hz on the desktop if those are the only timings that will allow them to hit 120hz.

Ok use these 110hz timings BELOW and transfer them to NVCP...Yes i know you can not find back porch and blanking in NVCP however they will set themselves automatically when you transfer front porch and sync width and set the totals in NVCP!....These timings will allow you to hit 110hz and allow your cards memory clock to down clock on the desktop

I read toastyx has a fix but that the fix doesn't work when playing games in full screen is that correct? I might just keep both monitors at 96Hz but it would be nice if I could get them both to 110Hz. The other 110Hz timings in your image don't work for me.

It may be the fact that you are using duel monitors in that case jump over to toastyx forum and explane your problems to him and i am sure he will help you thumb.gif

So after a few days of back and forth, the seller (green-sum) said that he will accept the defective monitor and pick it up. I guess this is a good indication of just how bad the monitor was. As a follow up, the top-right corner of the monitor was not suffering from backlight bleed. It was in fact a burn in. Its easy to tell if you take it out of the housing and test it. Pretty disappointed with the whole scenario thus far but lets see where it goes. I sent the seller my pickup information, now I just gotta make sure they fill all their paperwork out properly so I dont get charged double the import fees. I guess I have to start with calling Canada customs and finding out how to avoid that issue. This should be interesting.

I've just recently bought a Qnix 2710, the DVI-only version. The monitor looks great, I have seen no dead pixels (but I don't particularly want to look for them), and I have only minor backlight bleed out of the box, so I'm pretty happy with it.
I've been having issues with Catalyst and scaling options, though.

I want to be able to run games at lower resolutions (1080p) and have them displayed fullscreen. There's an option for Gpu scaling in the Catalyst control panel (under My digital flat panels->Properties->Enable GPU scaling), but it appears to be useless. Regardless of what the setting in the control panel is, some games (in my case, Dark Souls 2) run fullscreen, while others (Assassin's Creed 4) run 1:1 with black borders.

The settings can be changed if I change the resolution of the desktop first, and the various options to preserve the aspect ratio or to display 1:1 appear to work fine on the desktop, but are ignored in games. I had issues like this before with an older monitor connected through HDMI, where some titles (like Arkham Origins) would decide to run 1:1 with black borders if I lowered the resolution, regardless of what I chose in the Catalyst control center.

Is there something I can do? This has been happening with multiple driver versions over the years, with two different cards (a 5770 first, a 7850 now). I don't really have the budget to get an Nvidia card, though I really, really wish I could.

A number of modern games have resolution scaling built into the options (like dark souls 2 and battlefield 4) but I dont see why you would want to downscale from 1440p to 1080p while on a 1440p monitor. The obvious route would be to change the resolution on your monitor to 1920x1080 and the games will follow. I have tried 200% scaling but never 50% as that scenario has never presented itself. Why not just run a 1080p monitor native? A quick search did turn up some GPU scaling issues with older cards.

Is the xstar and qnix the complete same?

Or do they have a different stand? bezel?

thanks smile.gif

From the FAQ
Q: Should I buy an X-star or a Qnix (Any differences? Which one will overclock better?)
A: Short answer: Choose whichever one you want.
Long answer: They have the same screen, (both samsung PLS), and look almost identical other than their logo. Neither one has been proven to be clearly better, at this time. The general consensus is believed that they have the same random OC-ability.

Below are unboxing posts, gives a good view of both.

I've just received my Qnix 2710, and followed the OC guide (both Nvidia pixel clock as the CRU). But for some reason it just won't budge any further than 60FPS/Hz on the frame skipper test.

Restarted multiple times already.

Any ideas?

I've read that on the X-star you can remove the stand without having to open up the monitor. Maybe someone else can confirm.
