These were my settings on CRU:

Refresh Rate: 110
Front porch vertical: 1
Sync width vertical: 2
Back porch horizontal: 12
Back porch vertical: 2

Try automatic timing, but don't instal GeForce Experience or if it is installed try without.

I'm looking at buying this one as it is the only Qnix that is fulfilled by amazon and I like being covered by amazon's return policy. Is it still worth it to buy these panels or should I look somewhere else? I loved the picture quality of my catleap but when it has backlight bleed that takes up 3/4 of the screen i just couldn't stand it in games with dark scenes.

Depends if you want to overclock @ 96Hz or possibly higher up to 120Hz ... I would not be to concerned with the older vs newer panels as there is nothing you can do about it. The panel you linked is your best bet but if your not overclocking there are other 60Hz only options.
If you don't have to go through Amazon, THIS one is slightly cheaper from a reputable dealer. wink.gif

Really the only other panel that compares (actually outperforms @144Hz) in performance and picture quality is the just released Acer XB270HU ... but it's $800 even if you could get one( read HERE) ... it also does NOT come in a "glossy" version ... yet?

I just thought I should share that since people usually post when someone's gone wrong, but rarely post when things are working fine. thumb.gif

Nice!, it's always good to here the positive +R ...
Mine is a little older and still going strong at 120Hz gaming / 110Hz desktop wink.gif

Yes it is different ... it uses the LG S-IPS panel and is a true glossy, it is more like the Yamakazi Cat2B and IMHO has a very slightly better PQ ... But the overclocking PCB is no different, they just seem to have a reliable source for the proper OC parts.
If you don't mind the $150 premium then I'd go with the Tempest ... plus you will get better service and I bet replacement parts if? you ever need them, and will always be available and cheaper? to their customers wink.gif

Overclocking is pretty straight forward so you will know in a couple minutes whether your going to have trouble or not. Try 96hz first and go from there. If you have trouble at 96, then you may want to look into a higher cable. If you can do 96 but have problems at say 110, well that's probably just panel lottery and no need for a new cable.

THIS^^^^ +R ... unless you have a bad stock cable, mine is 5' and working fine @120Hz+, a shorter 3" cable might help but not much according to most users in this thread redface.gif

Most of the stuff you wanna know is probably in the OP, so check that for anything else you wanna know

The Acer XB270HU @$800 (semi-gloss/not glossy) is the only competitor for picture quality and speed if you can get one (see link above) rolleyes.gif

The Swift should only be considered if you only care about speed and NOT picture quality. I tried one (actually 3) for a few weeks and returned all of them, @$700 for me I couldn't believe how bad the AG coating was and not mentioning how bad a TN panel looks compared to IPS/PLS, along with a troublesome overclocked G-Sync module, pixel inversions etc etc ... just go read for yourself HERE ... redface.gif

99% of the single-input PLS models will do 96Hz / many will go to 110Hz / some will do 120Hz+ but not many recently. ALL of them are reliable stable overclocks when proper implementation is done, see OP or my sig. I prefer the glossy, see my comments below. Personally @$300 I'm sticking with the QNIX/Cat2B at least until we see if the XB270HU doesn't turn out like the Rog Swift quality wise ... AND they come out with a "Glossy" ... wink.gif

Thanks

Glossy is definitely reflective, but many of us demand the extra picture clarity/quality it provides over a matte finish! You will need to be able to control certain light sources within your environment. Try using (or borrowing) your glossy laptop in the same position as your desktop screen would be, that will give you a good comparison. As a last resort you could also use a quality smartphone/ipad for the same test wink.gif

I'd start fresh, completely removing all traces of the AMD drivers and CRU, it is not needed with Nvidia GPU's (GTX770). Then initially I'd try overclocking in the NVCP ONLY with standard/stock timings. You may be surprised at how well "simple" Nvidia GPU's work with OC'ing the panel ... go HERE for more Info and timing's ... thumb.gif

Thank you, I managed to get my 110hz back with these settings:

In fact I managed to get it 112 hz as you can see. I put it on 120hz with same timings and I got artifacts, but I'm going to increase the hz in 1 increments to see how high it will get before I start getting artifacts.

edit: Okay at 115hz I get artifacts with these timings, 114hz works fine. Is there anything I can try to change to get it higher?

I think I could change the "Total pixels" values? But I don't really understand that part.

I have 119hz
2646hor
1446ver
455.30pxlclk
172 refreshrate

I had it at 120hz but got blue screen freeze and had to reboot safe mode than I restored to earlier point and lowered to 119, If vert/hor numbers are unbalanced you will see when testing
find stable balance, no green line shooting cross screen, noticed when installed driver update was able to hit 120 again but fiddled to lower pixel clk and bluescreen so restored and now
sticking to 119 which 980 can maintain FPS when oc to 1505. whatever your monitor hz is is what you want FPS to be.

Nice! wink.gif ... Yes you could fiddle with the Total Horz/Vert Pixels, it will adjust the other variables automatically,
this is how Lawson, myself and others found acceptable timings to deal with the ram desktop downclocking/power saving challenge almost a year ago now ... you may find 2-3Hz improvements ... But your rock solid again at 110Hz with some minor overhead safety so go enjoy one of the best bang for buck "cheats" in gaming history biggrin.gif

@piee ... Yes it's ideal to match FPS to your refresh rate, but for those that don't have $1000+ GPU budgets you will still see some benefits even when your avg FPS is well below your target/set refresh rate thumb.gif

Hey guys I'm new/looking to upgrade my monitor (an aging, super heavy LG) and I found out about qnix a while back. Read some of this thread and came down to these two monitors:

http://www.ebay.com/itm/140934439651#shpCntId?rmvSB=true

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Perfect-Pixel-QNIX-QX2710-LED-EVOLUTION-II-DP-MULTI-TRUE10-27-2560x1440-Monitor-/141481152682?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item20f0ef10aa

I'm on a gtx-770 superclocked, I doing a decent bit of gaming and photoshop stuff. Which monitor would you recommend (or one I didn't link)?

Also, best recommended cable? I'm guessing I should use displayport?

It's cheaper and it's not worth paying for Perfect pixel, it's just their warranty they don't actually check it any more.

I can personally vouch for this one. Ordered last week delivered in 2 days.

Mine has no BLB, Dead Pixels, and OC's to 120hz so it's a great deal smile.gif

Thank you for your response! Any difference between the two you linked besides glossy/matte? And isn't there a benefit to the multi10 version or having 4ms refresh rate?

Matte = if you got too much light in your room, when I asked the sellers why it was more expensive they said it just cost a bit more to make. If you tend to have lights off or your room is naturally lit then glossy should be fine.

Apparently when overclocking the multi versions you get frame skipping which then negates the 4ms refresh rate.

And apparently the overclock on the multi models tends to be <100hz

Thanks man, looks like I still have more reading to do but I'll prob go with the glossy you linked. Is the cable that comes with it fine for the best latency/color/etc then?
