Hey all, I just tried to set custom resolution for 120hz like i have before and it says my monitor does not support this resolution when I try to test it.

only diff from usual is win10 I think

this is with the timings in this guide though, usually I had a different source with more examples(I wish that was here this condensed guide is BAD)

Pressing the power light does not do anything, but if I unplug the monitor from the power cord and leave it for about 10 minutes it will work again for abit. If I unplug it then replug it back in quickly it doesn't work. It's really annoying and am wondering it could be something wrong with the power cord or does it sound like an issue with the monitor itself? Do I need to buy a new monitor? frown.gif

Just an update, the monitor is not overclocked at all. I ordered a new power cord + brick when you guys recommended it, and it just arrived today. I plugged it all in, and about 5 minutes after plugging it in, the screen went black once again. So I guess it has to be something wrong with the monitor frown.gif
Is my only option at this point to order a new monitor?

this is because you are using tightened timings. It will force the card into 3d clocks which does it not play nice with chrome when hardware acceleration is used. Use 96hz profile with lcd standard timings and enjoy.

Been rocking 110hz solid on original powerbrick and not patching qnix.ini for a 2.5 years straight now.

Just thought some people might like to know

So I have some money to get the Dell s2716DG here in South Africa. I want to know if anyone have experience using that monitor and a qnix. Will I suffer image quality a lot or does that dell monitor use one of the better TN panels.

I'm using the qnix qx2710 evolution II with PLS panel overclocked to 110hz. My system is 980ti, 4790k, 16gb ram. So I gain g-sync for ultra smooth gameplay and 144hz for when I can reach it. I want to buy it because of g-sync and 144hz. The faster response is not a big deal as my qnix in games where I can reach my fps I need have almost 0 input lag. I have my tricks to minimize the input lag and don't want to go into to much detail but I set my fps to 1 lower than vsync.

In some newer titles I can't reach 110hz so that makes my games stutter a lot. Color reproduction and viewing angles is not super important I just don't want something that has way less impressive colors and viewing angel that It will drive me mad. I guess with a view tweaks I can get better colors and a better experience on the Dell.

So what do you guys think? does the tn on the Dell really that much worse that the PLS on the qnix?

Ordered QNIX QX2710 LED Evolution II 27" QHD Samsung PLS Matte Panel PC Monitor and received yesterday.

Think it might be a defect but there are two faint black lines on the top middle and bottom middle of left side of the screen. Tested in games and it is noticeable. Is this a known thing? Also is this something that can be fixed or should I return.
Thanks ahead of time for any feedback. Picture included.

never seen anything like that before, hopefully you bought from a seller who has cali listed as point of origin so return should be cheap.

Could be screen burn in, what was on your screen previously? did it sit at the same page or desktop for a while?
