I find it bizarre that people are just jumping on the 1440p 60Hz+ Bandwagon without realising what they are buying.

It was known that this panel has no OSD to adjust RGB values; Hue; Saturation; Contrast etc to give accurate colours.

Yet people are buying PLS / IPS panels which are majority used by photo editing enthusiasts due to the panels better colours and complain that the colours are crappy when they overclock the panel.

Editing enthusiasts will have calibration tools and software to create there own ICC profiles to give supreme neutral colours.

So if people are complaining the colours look odd and the ICC profiles in the OP don't give good results for them when overclocked then I suggest you INVEST in something like an Xrite Display 3 Pro and use either Displaycal or Chromapure to get the best colours out of your panels.

There will be variation in ALL panels so it will be highly unlikely that the profiles will be suitable for your monitor. I've tried them all and I was shocked by how much variation there is.

I'm not having a go mate, just need to give the panel credit where it's due, as it looks flipping awesome even when overclocked . Get it professionally calibrated, or just get something cheap like a Spyder 4 and use DisplaycalGUI and calibrate it yourself.

But there is a way to have it all if you're willing to spend some money.

My monitor has arrived in Brussels, nice! It said something about customs, I wonder if it means it's already through and I'm getting the screen on monday already. That would be flippin' awesome biggrin.gif

Oh by the way how is this calibration tool?

Do the matte QNIX monitors have a thick AG coating like Dell, or medium/light like most TN monitors?

Does the monitor come with a Dual link DVI-D cable?

Add these profiles to the OT please. No clue what's different about them but they seem to look great here.

Anyone? biggrin.gif

Only other why that I heard of is to use some Nvidia utility, but it requires an Nvidia GPU to use. I don't have Nvidia so I don't know much more about it.

I had the same problem at 96Hz but MenacingTuba's Qnix 96hz 16 Bit Lut ICC Profile fixed it for me. He recommends -16 BRI from the max so that would be 14, however I find that a bit excessive in usually dimly lit/completely dark room so I reduced that to 10 and it did the trick. I've tried all profiles from the OT and this one seems to be the most balanced. Good colors, no red tint, great blacks and decent whites while a bit on the dim side.

Thanks. I did try the default NV utility but the whole system started to lag. Mouse movements, screen drags would skip.

My Brother has taken my phone so I can't take a pic so a screen shot will have to do, but this is how much difference it makes (see pic below). The Xrite was done using auto setup and I will get back to it in manual mode to fine tune. I know viewing pics depends on your monitors too but hopefully you can see the differences.
