The thumb screws used to mount the backplate onto the back of the monitor dont work, they fit width wise but are too long so I cant screw them in tight enough to keep the plate from moving. Before I go to the hardware store and hunt through a billion sizes of thumb screws, anyone happen to know the width/length of a thumbscrew i would need?

thanks!

Go to the plumbing section and buy a pack of rubber washers?

thats what I did to attach my benq RL2460H stand to the Qnix, the benq stand uses the VESA holes on the benq, so was pretty awesome that its like a universal stand now, for VESA 100x100.
I just used rubber washers to make the stand and qnix have firm contact, because without washers the Benq screws left a very tiny gap, just didnt feel good knowing it wiggled a little, I dont think the VESA holes are deep enough.

IMO use rubber washers over metal, the stand and back of the monitor are both plastic, plus the rubber ones add a good bit of rigidity versus metal.

Hey thanks for he idea! +1Rep biggrin.gif

I'm having the same problem but much worse, I have about 1.5mm of space I need to fill since the VESA holes aren't deep enough. Moving the monitor scrapes the screws and is really horrible and hard to adjust.

I agree rubber washers would be a much better choice too, didn't even remember they existed until your comment actually. They'll also help reduce minute vibrations which is a big plus.

I've looked at about 3 dozen of them trying to find the absolute best one. This is it:

Is there a specific model or are you just looking for matching DC In and outputs?
Mine's pretty hot, but I feel like that may be normal...unless yours is like "can cook an egg on it"--hot. Mine is like I can hold it but I've never felt a power brick this hot before.

You don't have to match everything, it's actually advantageous to have a higher output amperage capability. The original QNIX adapter (the one that cooks eggs and melts and will cause your insurance to cover nothing if it burns your house down because it's not CE rated) is a 12v 5a output adapter, supporting 59 watts. This one can output 6amps, so it has a 72 watt maximum.

That overhead ensures that even if quality control/components were bad or of low quality the device would have ample performance overhead and still output a clean signal. (This model has no such issues, unlike the majority of adapters listed on amazon and ebay).

It's a great deal for the price/performance as well. I bought it with overclocking in mind. I can't say it helped but it certainly didn't hurt especially with the lowest brightness step flickering less.

Just dropping this here in case someone googles it.

QNIX 2710LED Evolution II
Windows 10 64-bit Pro
AMD Fury X

Accell UltraAV DisplayPort to DVI-D Dual-Link Adapter

This adapter works for DP to DVI, in the case your Video Card doesnt have a DVI out, but does have Display Port.
Dont use HDMI to DVI, for bandwidth reasons, you cant output over 1080p (I couldnt find any, and you need HDMI 1.4 or above to even do 1440p+, but theres apparently problems converting a HDMI signal to DVI-D Dual Link) (1600p)
Just have to make sure your DVI cable is certified Dual Link when attaching this adapter.
Single Link Max. 1920x1200
Dual Link required for higher resolutions

Pros:
- Build Quality is awesome, really rigid feel, is plastic but hard and not flimsy/squeaky.
- Works with the Qnix, so should work with X-Star, Catleap, Crossover, Yama and the other Korean similar monitors.
- Long enough USB cable to reach back I/O USB ports.

Cons:
- Cant seem to go above 2560x1440@60, any CRU edit doesnt add the OC to the list of available refresh rates (in Display Adapter Settings). so you have to use 60Hz, making all the OC you did go to waste.
- Requires USB port for power
- Packaging cut my finger, opening it...

Got it from Best Buy sale, for 19.99 (reg. $120)

Going to be testing the

VisionTek DisplayPort to Dual Link DVI-D Active Adapter

tomorrow, bought both in case one didnt work. =D
(will just update this post.)


VisionTek DisplayPort to Dual Link DVI-D Active Adapter

Just tested the Visiontek adapter.

Doesnt work. Well it works but you can clearly see flickers and display corruptions (hazy flashes of horizontal lines on monitor)
Tried with 10ft DVI-D DL cable. Tried With the DVI cable that comes with the QNIX, same result.

Pros:
Small, Compact
Does not need USB connection also
Not too long that it dangles, the Adapter to DisplayPort plug is a decent length

Cons:
Does not work with QNIX 2710LED, even if reviews of the product state that it works on other 1440p displays
Same lines appear even at 1080p display settings
Packaging felt cheap, just adapter in a bag with the cardboard device label stapled to the top holding the bag shut.

going to be returning the VIsiontek asap.
Price: $39.99 (31.99 from Visiontek, no free shipping)

Thanks for the info, been looking for more advice about this.

According to this YT video though it seems that using a single-link DVI to HDMI cable can work too?

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ALD_7bs669o

I'd guess this probably has a lot of drawbacks compared to DVI to DP though. I'll probably just look around for the Accell adapter you used.
post #25040 of 25922
While I know it's been asked before, has anyone noticed a difference overclocking using different gauge/length DVI cables? The FAQ says it seems random, but on other threads it seems like 24AWG cables perform well, with the shorter the better. With this, will my purchase of a 24AWG 6ft cable be fine?
