I'll know for sure this week once that adapter comes in. If it is the card hopefully they'll just let me ship it back and get a refund as I bought it from a vendor on Amazon. (They seem upfront about finding a resolution to the issue if needed.)

It's working great for 1080p but refuses to work on the 1440p. That and perhaps Zotac will actually respond to my e-mail tomorrow.

Would mean more waiting and I really want to venture into the wonder that is 1440p and above 60hz after being on 60hz and 1080p so long. Thank you all for the replies.

Just to add I'm using R9 290s in crossfire, I can max most games 60+fps, games I struggle with are arma 3 and project cars. Of course I'm running these on my XSTAR korean monitor.
1440p is what companies told us what 1080p would be like haha. Using a 1080p monitor now is a nasty experience.

Hi Everyone,

Would someone be able to help with marking of some resistors from QX2710 PCB DPL2560LS or a high res picture, I managed to misplace them some time ago.

The values I am looking for are for R702, R701, R703, R706.

Thanks for help.

Hey guys,

so I overclocked my Qnix QX2710 to 96Hz which works fine and noticable different under Windows 7.
I use a gtx 780ti @ default settings for testing purpose.

As soon as I start a game in fullscreen the Monitor turns black real fast and probably resets to 60Hz. For example Dota 2.

I start Dota 2 at default 60Hz and the monitor doesnt turn black and Vsync shows me correct 60Hz ingame. I can tab out and in without the Monitor turning black. As soon as I change the refreshrate to anything different but 60 Hz the game kind of resets the settings back to 60Hz ingame. Vsync ingame does not work then and the client renders the maximum 120Fps he is allowed to render.

Its the same issue with Left for dead, Dead space etc. Default settings doesnt trigger a blackscreen. But anything different leads to a blackscreen before the game starts which I think resets the Monitor to 60Hz for that fullscreen application.
However if I start Dota 2 in Borderless window mode with vsync it renders the correct 96Hz.

If everything worked correctly it should Vsync the 96Hz I set my monitor to and feel different I guess?

What can I do that the game accept the Monitor as a 96 hz device in fullscreenmode?

Hello all, I'm thinking about upgrading my old monitor to this, but I wanted to ask a few questions. I've read the FAQ and been all over the internet, but details on this monitor are hardish to find (and this thread is rather long, though I'm sure my questions may have been asked).

1. This is an ideal monitor to go for right (ebay link at the end)? I've gathered that what I want is just the baseline Evolution 2, none of this multi true or SE stuff: http://www.ebay.com/itm/QNIX-QX2710-LED-Evolution-ll-Glossy-27-2560x1440-SAMSUNG-PLS-Panel-PC-Monitor-/111482846269

2. My eyes can get pretty sensitive to bright light under my current lighting conditions. The monitor I have now is a Samsung that has a remote that I frequently use to adjust the backlight from 20 to as low as 3 in extreme cases. Does this Qnix monitor have a decent range of brightness/backlight control? Could I get the screen fairly dark, or is this likely to be an issue?

3. Apparently buying these monitors is like buying lottery tickets. They are at least generally quite good, right?


Thanks for any advice here, and sorry for any questions that may have been asked (or even answered in the information comp that I may have missed).

1. Yes. "SE" means "Second Edition" and is not the problem. The TRUE10 models though, are the ones that you should stay away from if you want to overclock. The one you linked is single input, and therefore overclockable.

2. I took the time to close my curtains and set one of my monitors to max and the other to minimum brightness using the controls on the monitors smile.gif



Don't look at the image quality, just the brightness difference please tongue.gif

3. I have personally never had a problem. The reason people call it a lottery is honestly not because there's a high chance that the monitor will be defect upon delivery. The real problem for Korean IPS owners is that should it disfunction one day, returning it all the way to South Korea to get a replacement is a hassle. I'd still say 99+% of Qnix owners recieve a perfectly fine monitor, and that is also reflected in the ebay feedback system where the most reputable sellers that 99% or more positive feedback. This also applies to overclockability, pretty much all single input Qnix's will overclock to a minimum of 96Hz if done correctly.

Good luck with your purchase smile.gif

EDIT: Unrelated to the monitor, you should really try f.lux if you have sensitive eyes. It really helps during late night browsing etc.

Thanks for the quick reply and the image brightness comparison thumb.gif. Looks like it should be manageable, and I think I'm comfortable with ordering one of these now. Though I do want to note that the only reason I was mentioning SE was because of lower QC standards or something. Not sure if that was the only difference though.

Also I've been using f.lux tongue.gif. Actually used it all evening today for the first time in a while. It's nice as long as I'm not doing anything where the orange is likely to annoy me, but I'm kind of hoping to find another filter of some sort. On my phone I use a screen filter that just kind of adds a really dark overlay. That would probably be my ideal solution honestly.

Anyway, thanks again for the info biggrin.gif

If you're worried buy a pixel perfect one! biggrin.gif Little bit more £20-£30 but no dead pixels.

Usually only the "Ultimate Perfect Pixel" models guarantee no dead pixels. The regular perfect pixel models still allow some number of dead/stuck pixels.
