Nah mine just got here today, was like 2-3 days from korea to australia anyway.
Spewing the weekend got in that way and added another couple of days to that.

Not overly impressed with the screen itself though so far.
I'll try be gentle and see if it grows on me. smile.gif
Definately pulling it apart first chance I get to fix the backlight bleed though.
Dark backgrounds look yellow on the bottom it's that strong

Got it at 96hz so far with no need for any mods or anything.
Just added 2560x1440@96hz as a custom res and it just works thumb.gif
I did briefly have 120hz working but it seemed to take forever to switch into 120hz mode though and i did get one scanline so I'll leave it at 96 for now and work on that later.

Response time is ****house, I'm not normally too bad with motion blur etc but I notice it big time on this screen.
Hopefully once I get some spare time I can try do what is needed to turn this from a pretty mediocre monitor into a half decent one at least biggrin.gif

Just packed it up and it's looking really good!

Very impressed with the size resolution and yea just everything so far!

I've did some quick dead pixel/blb looking and only noticed 1 dead/stuck pixel (can't see) a bit left to the center of the screen. But no biggie, there is usually text and stuff there i probably wont notice it.

Anyways the blackligt bleed is only minor, and i can't see it on a dark background in normal lighting. So, so far i'm probably not gonna open it up (feel saver this way too tongue.gif)

I haven't adjusted colours yet neither the overclocking..

Also i have to find a new background tongue.gif

Just to note, When I got mine I just set a custom res in nvidia control panel for 96hz and it worked fine.
Then I tried counter-strike and it was only running at 60hz?
Some games worked some didn't...

So I deleted my custom res in control panel, installed the pixel clock patcher and used cru to change 60hz to 120hz on the detailed 2560x1440 and now all games work with 120hz in all resolutions. Nice! thumb.gif

I just tried overclocking to 96Hz and it seems to be working perfectly. I had 96 FPS in Counter Strike.

So i think i'm going to 120hz now biggrin.gif

EDIT: Just went for 120Hz and fizzyness appeared tongue.gif So back @96Hz. Not sure if it's gpu or cable but it doesn't really matter, i don't think i can pull more than 96 fps in my games.

Now to the colour calibration. Any recommendations? I see loads of profiles in the OP, but i don't know which to choose.

Try one or two and decided what you think is best. It has to do with how much light you have in your ambient so it´s a little subjective.

Hey guys,

I'm 95% sure I'm buying this monitor (Qnix) but just some questions, I'll probably get it next month because my Visa is high enough already, so here it goes;

* What seller should I get it from? I'm currently thinking of Hulustar, Bigclothcraft or green-sum. I want to be able to ask for a lower value on invoice because Belgium likes to tax.
* Glossy vs Matte; I have a window +/- 4meter behind me and my computer case has an acrylic panel with leds that sits next to the case. I'm guessing it's better to get the matte one. I have a macbook pro with glossy screen and I love the picture.
* I have 2 Sapphire HD7870's running in crossfire, everything should be fine?
* I want to mount this on my wall, do I need to look for something specific (mount holes?), also I read some stuff about the built quality, my monitor won't fall of the wall will it?!

I currently have a Samsung XL2370led monitor running in 1080p, what sort of picture difference should I expect when I first turn on the monitor, will it be like omg wooooow drool.gif

Thanks, looking forward to getting this beast. I'm going through the thread, I'm at page 77 atm thumb.gif
