Is there anyone out there running (3) 1440p @ 120Hz? Time to hunt..

The Tru 10 version or w.e has HDMI, but doesnt OC.

yeah, kinda sucks. but I am not that fussed about that.
usually don't play games across all 3 monitors, more of a multiboxer. so (for example) 1 diablo 3 windowed opened on one oc-able monitor, 3 small windowed on another oc-able monitor and the one that's running on 60hz i use for browser or even to watch some stuff while playing (yes, diablo is that easy smile.gif )

Not that this helps for your particular case but Nvidia surround with tri-sli lets you plug 1 monitor into 1 DVI port on each card.

One of mine only goes to 110Hz, but I usually keep them at 96hz anyway. Again, this is with Nvidia, so doesn't help you much.

Thanks for the input, pun intended..

I'm basically only a battlefield gamer, so I'd love to have all working.. Especially considering I'm running portrait instead of landscape. I find that tall windows/screens are a lot more useful to me... Should probably try out landscape sometime.

Guys, I'm about to choose between a Yamakasi Catleap 2B extreme or a Glossy Qnix Qx2710 evo II (single input). I plan to use it for games mostly therefore I'm going to overclock it. Give me your opinions please!

The only advantages I know of the Catleap over the Qnix are the ability to handle OC without noticeable side effects(gamma shift, panel uniformity, colors... etc) and the slightly faster response (less blur,lag). Correct me if I'm wrong or missing something.

I don't have any information about the recent glossy Qnix evo2 if has a better panel than the usual Qnix. So if anyone have tried it, please elaborate how good it is smile.gif

Feedback is much appreciated! Ty

I got two X-Star DP2710s from dream-seller recently, both glossy and with the newer 2013 panel. Both overclock to 110hz without any issues at all and look glorious. No dead pixels and no lightbleed whatsoever - Adam

After reading the entire Qnix thread and Yamakasi threads, along with every review I can find on both, I think the LG based monitors are ever so slightly a safer bet. If something were to go wrong, they are easier to replace parts on, and easier to find parts for. Out of the box, I do believe the Qnix is ever so slightly more eye popping though, all based on what I have read. The LG panels that overclock are based on a certified LG design, however the Qnix/Xstar brand has electronics based on the sole design by DisplayLand INC (who is that?).

For me, what matters most is reliability and the ability for me to do a quick repair if it suddenly stopped working. We can buy parts for the LG based monitors much faster, and slightly cheaper. Thus I can have backup parts already sitting here, just in case. With that said, you can also purchase parts for the X-Star brands as well, but only one source that I know of exists currently.

EDIT: And umm, I thought I was posting in the Yamakasi thread, lmao. Sorry...

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.

After updating drivers you need to reapply the nvidia pixel clock patch

Here is my color profile calibrated with the built-in windows calibration tools and my eyes.
Should work on 60-96hz with 50-100% brightness without any color skewing, it's calibrated around a 6500K cool white color preference try it out might surprise you.
