[Official] The Qnix/X-Star 1440p Monitor Club - Page 202

post #2011 of 25862
I notice the motion blur in Planetside 2. That's the only FPS game I've played on the monitor so far. Though, I don't remember if it's better or worse than my old TN panel with 2ms response time. I'd like to think its better with the 96hz OC.

(UK) I got a tax bill from Fedex a couple of weeks later (which I haven't paid yet tbh wink.gif) consisting of 20% VAT and an 'advancement' charge of £10.50 grr mad.gif

£48.81 altogether on top of the £196 monitor.

PS After messing about with timings & polarity (on AMD 7950, using CRU) screen is flickery and has visible vertical lines, which I've never experienced before (seen faint horizontal ones at some point). This actually gets worse at 60hz.

Gonna fiddle with the cables. NB The Yamasaki is not affected, just the Qnix.

Compared to my old TN 2ms response time monitor, I also notice the motion blur on the qnix at 60 Hz. I played League of Legends while having my monitor overclocked to 110 Hz and it was smoother. So I would assume that overclocking the monitor while playing planetside 2 would be beneficial

I know this has been answered in the op but there is not enough info, My monitor currently has the bezel of and the panel can be taken out, I am trying to fix the massive amount of glow eminating from my top right corner but the guide just says do it. is it safe to take of the metal surrounding the screen? Do I just rip the tape off that they have placed. How do I get the bright glow to get away when both bezels are off.





EDIT: stripped one of my screws connected to the panel directly what do I do? *** broke my phone today too:mad:mad.gifmad.gifmad.gifmad.gifmad.gifmad.gifmad.gifmad.gifmad.gif i hate screwing

I was wondering what to do for games that have a 'motion blur' feature. Should I turn it off? Since the monitor already has blur tongue.gif Or is that an entirely different blur?

I haven't received mine yet so I haven't had the chance to open it up. They have youtube videos here though: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLnVkA6ZcoQv5piavGXZDJv3Wj2E4MT_iE

Who did you purchase the monitor from?

The only reliable way I have ever been able to deal with stripped screws was to use a bit set for a drill that is a reverse thread. You should be able to get one from amazon or any similar place for $5-10, put an appropriately sized one in a drill and carefully use it to bite into the screwhead and get it out. I have seen and tried all the other methods like superglue in the head with a screwdriver, prying it, using pliers, rubber-band, etc and they just don't work very often. Give them a shot first though, the rubber band method especially is safe and non-destructive. I'll find the exact name of the type of bit you'd want to use with a drill from my order history and edit back shortly.

EDIT: They are called "left hand drill bits". I found an old thread I had made years ago... http://www.tivocommunity.com/tivo-vb/archive/index.php/t-452298.html where people gave a lot of suggestions and those are what finally worked for me as well as being safe for the device.

Any of the lads who replaced the stand with VESA desk mounts or stands care to comment on how good or bad they are?
I was happy with stability with it just touching the wall on one side...until I noticed the bezel has been rubbing black onto the wall.

I have it wall mounted and it's perfectly fine albeit i need a crap ton of washers because the screw holes in the monitor is not that deep.
