I sort of agree, but sort of don't. The Korean PLS monitors people are buying now are either Qnix or X-Star, changing the thread title won't limit anyone. However, maybe you should just put "(Qnix and X-Star)" at the end so people know what you're talking about, opposed to just the generic "Korean monitor."

Also, make sure you guys give wntrsnowg (The OP) some Rep+ for all the work he's putting into this thread!

I think the WQHD part should be more important than either QNIX or XStar since there are 24" versions of the qnix IIRC but 1080p and not much fun.

I don't think any cable is going to fix your scan lines, your monitor just isn't going to do 120hz. Try 96Hz.

I don't know, because the frequency of the scan lines changes from cable to cable (I don't even get scan lines at all on the desktop with one cable, but it's too short).

Also, this monoprice cable is so heavy and thick the end of the cable won't fit straight into the port. It's on an angle, and I'm afraid it's pulling the actual port with it. Is this a problem, or can the port handle this heavy cable pulling it to the side?

Having some issue's with my PLS display and Crossfire

Setup

Windows 8
2x 7850 DCII 2gb
Decent DVI cable

Crossfire working fine at 1080p60

What i have done

- Enabled test mode
- Patch the driver

Reboot

- Add custom resolutions using CRU

Reboot

3d crashes at startup with Crossfire enabled, 120hz works great with a single card, or 1440p with crossfire at 80hz.

Am i doing anything wrong with the patching?

I'm planning to order one of these monitors soon, but I'm coming from a 2ms screen and am wondering if moving to 6ms (or 8ms?) is going to cause a lot of trouble for me in games.
Also, does anyone know if an overclocked monitor will last a reasonably long time? I know what to expect when it comes to longevity when overclocking a processor, but until a couple months ago so far as I knew overclocking a monitor was non-existent.

I used a LG W2361V before moving to this monitor and it's a lot better for playing Counter-Strike: Source than the LG (which is advertised as having a 2ms response time)
That's probably because it runs at 96 Hz. Everything is smooth as ****.

I had the same problem,I solved it by using 2 crossfire bridges at the same time, odd sounding I know, but like clockwork if I remove either bridge,I get crashes or an 80hz max limit

i have read about 2 crossfire bridges, small issue, my 7850 only have 1 connector
post #210 of 25887
So does my 7870, so I'm glad this topic has been brought up as I was considering crossfiring it to support this new monitor, but now I know I'll have to sell it and upgrade to a better card.'

When you say '3d crashes at startup' are you talking about any game or are you talking about enabling stereo 3d (or whatever kind of 3d these cards support).
