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

Shouldn't have any problems with the 7870's. I'm running crossfired 7870s and am running 2 of these bad boys, about to add a third.

It uses vesa mounts. I believe its 100x100. unfortunately you have to open up the monitor to take the little piece out that connects the monitor to the stand, unless you want that ugly piece sticking out. Not too hard though.

2560x1440 is a whole new world, youll love it

Get whichever is cheapest, the Qnix tend to be priced a bit higher than the X-star. But they are exactly the same.

1. All of the mentioned sellers are good. I got my X-Star from Green-Sum, and while he did lower the value i don't think he marked it as a gift and i had to pay taxes to DHL.

2. I would say if you have a window in your room you should settle with an Matte, just to be on the save side. Also the matte on this panel isn't bad at all, some might call it semi-glossy.

3. I got an 7850 and i can pull out 96Hz with the stock cable. So if you are lucky you might be able to pull out 120hz. As long as you got 2 bridges you will be fine, the display will not work with only 1.

4. The monitor is a bit whoppy but i'm okay with it. It got a 100mm vesa mount so you can mount it to your wall or desk. The monitor isn't a Dell or some high class fancy **** so the build quality isn't superb, but it's more than good enough for me. Alternatively you could put the panel in a new casing. Someone was talking about this in this thread.

i came from a 22' 1680x1050 and i was like waaosjahgdpaslidfgh drool.gif The resolution is insane! i love it!



Cheers and Good Luck!

Do some of the 7000 series (specifically the 7800 series) only have one bridge on the cards? Mine only has one as far as I can see, and I've been able to run the monitors (1 overclocked) just fine.

So you have 2 78XX's running crossfire with one bridge and it works? Did you OC the monitor?

Well. Others had issues, and it has been stated that it wouldn't work properly.

CrossFire requires two bridges if the pixel clock is greater than 320 MHz. This is only possible with cards that have two connectors. It will not work properly with more than two cards.

Yes I have 2 xfx 7870's core editions and was able to overclock the monitor.

Not to mention that in windows everything gets smoother.
Wrapping up, I would do it biggrin.gif

So you notice gaming with a difference with 96hz? Seems like im going to go with a Qnix glossy and want to overclock but 96hz vs 120hz is what i want to know now lol. Also if that the multiple of 24 fps matters much because then what about games for being 60fps? 120hz seems king anything divisible by 30 and 24 also.

I could immediately tell a difference in League of Legends. So much smoother.


This is my current set up. The middle and left monitors are qnix's. The right one is an older aoc I'm using, thats just acting as a place holder until my third qnix comes this week.



Pic from catalyst control center/amd vision or whatever they're calling it these days tongue.gif. This is only the middle monitor. The left one is just running at 60hz.



My one bridge video cards
Sorry for the crappy pics, all I have is a cell phone camera.
