[Official] The Qnix/X-Star 1440p Monitor Club - Page 2132

post #21311 of 25887
I just bought the Qnix and it came here shipped with a few small (in depth) but long scratches on the center and top right of the screen as well as some strange smear marks that I can't seem to get off at multiple locations along the very top of the monitor. I could only see these when shining a flashlight on the monitor. It also has a small amount of back light bleed on the upper right corner of the screen and two dead pixels.

Should I request an RMA or is this normal?

While I would definitely not call scratches on the panel (they are actually on the screen?) "normal", if all the defects seem minor and you cannot notice them during use I would probably not want to go through rma. Then again it depends where the monitor came from. These sellers will do absolutely everything they can to avoid an rma and it takes a while to go through their cat mouse game sometimes.

They are indeed on the screen which is why I'm concerned. I don't really notice them during use but just knowing they are there bothers me. Screen also seems to be on the lower left side of the frame. it's very noticeably not properly positioned. Think I'm going to try for a Replacement / RMA.

Yes I received an X-star that had shifted in the panel during shipping before. It was used and had been disassembled and clearly got roughed up during the trip because the seller had before pictures. Seller was very gracious and accepted the return. I think you've received a used unit and I would open a case with eBay or Paypal if the seller pushes back in the slightest. Good luck and sorry for the trouble.

Does this affect the ability to overclock the monitor at all?
It definitely affects the ability to overclock. If you look at my post from Sunday (about 2 pages before your post) you will see my results. Basicly, 90Hz was as high as I could go without frame skipping.

Hey guys, my old glossy qnix is just lying around with a broken screen, but the poweradapter and PCB etcera should be fine, It overclocked to 120hz as well. Is there anyone on this forum that needs a new PCB or power adapter?

Anyone mind measuring the dimensions of just the monitor for me?
post #21318 of 25887
Hey guys, really need some help here. I had my qnix overclocked at 96hz and recently, I updated my nVidia drivers and then when i tried overclocking it, in the nvidia control panel, nothing was displayed. I went to custom resolution and tried to overclockit at 96 hz, it didnt work. then i tried to overclock just at 60 hz and it didnt work either. Screen is going crazy with blue and green lines. Now i cant even turn on my computer without these lines and im barely able to do anything on the screen. However, in safe mode, its working perfectly fine. Is there a way I could possibly reset the qnix back to square 1 and then try to overclock? I did unpatch the nvidia clocker before i updated my drivers and patched it again after driver update. My graphics card is gtx 780. Any help would be highly appreciated.

P.S. The nvidia driver i was trying to update is 344.11 and when i used Nvidia pixel clock patcher, it said sli limit 2 not found. However, This was not an issue before.

EDIT: I just did a system restore and it works perfectly fine now however I would like to know what I would have to do if I want to update my nVidia drivers.

Thanks for the input! I guess going 120Hz on 3x 1440p is probably out of reach anyway, right? I bet it'll work my cards pretty damn hard. I have yet to start reading the posts since I've last checked in here. Will do. Thanks again Roland2!

Well if you put two cards in SLI then you only have a one monitor issue!

Correct me if I am wrong but I think the Gigabyte 970 has 2 DVI-D ports.. wink.gif

Now can someone be so kind as to measure their QNIX Monitor.. haha..
