The maximum length recommended for DVI cables is not included in the specification, since it is dependent on the pixel clock frequency. In general, cable lengths up to 4.5 metres (15 ft) will work for display resolutions up to 1920 × 1200.
--DVI Wiki

But Google-fu says the limit is 15ft for the DVI signal (Single and Dual Link), and requires Booster for beyond that.

So without actually testing different lengths, theres isnt really a definitive answer on it till someone publishes results.

IMO: I would think, yes length could be a factor...but a 3ft cable versus a 6ft cable would only 0.001% +/- your OC result.

I'm using an "expensive" brand 10ft cable and my cap was 96hz on this L08 panel QNIX, pixel clock above 400 caused purple mist to appear on the left side.
I should have checked a different cable, but now that I'm on a different GPU, I cant OC, so I cant test if the cable length mattered.

Please note that was an opinion and not factual. but I do believe shorter is better, if you really needed anything longer than 6ft, then its a different story, but if DVI standards are set at 15ft limit I dont see why anything <15ft would fluctuate performance, and also we are not talking NEW technology, DVI has been around a looonnng time.

Did you JUST buy your monitor? it may also be a L08 model, please share your finding if you happen to get an OC higher than 96hz. would be plenty helpful.

Nah, I'm doing research on what I need to ensure the highest OC w/ the best panel, because I'm stuck at around a low 200s budget.

I was thinking of getting this: http://www.ebay.com/itm/130933173797, as I'm pretty sure that's the single input one that can OC, and is only $220. I'm also getting a 24AWG Dual Link DVI cable + a Monitor Arm from Monoprice, and I'll eventually need to upgrade my GPU from a GTX 950.

I've read about the PWM issues, but I'm not sure if I'd actually notice. On the other hand, I've been on the same refurb IPS monitor for years, so everything will drastically look different.

Just gathering money now...

About the PWM issue, I dont know if its because I know about it and what it "can" do to your eyes, but after getting the QNIX, I've become "aware" of every eye/straining problem and cant tell if its just normal pains of playing games/typing all day, or actually the PWM causing it. I admit, I do find that my eyes hurt after a bit....then again, could also be because of some negative placebo effect, of knowing that staring for long periods at this monitor will cause eye issues because of the PWM.... =_= I only have one person to blame LOL YOU KNOW WHO YOU ARE xD

but you should be fine, just do the ol' 20-20, every 20mins look away from screen to a far place for 20secs, let your eyes focus, continue to play. Optometrists say the same thing irrelevant to the PWN issue.

Bringing this up because I just had my bi-yearly eye-doctor checkup today and everything was perfectly fine....then again have only had the monitor since last tuesday.

Oh wow, I've actually noticed the same thing since having mine. It's a different kind of eye strain that happen in less than an hour as compared to my previous Dell IPS monitor. I'm seriously considering switching it out only for this reason.
post #25048 of 25924
Yeah, it makes me a bit worried, because I don't have another $100 to spend on a 2795...
post #25049 of 25924
Guys, I have an issue. Got the Gigabyte GTX 1080 card, works fine. So I overclocked the monitor to 96 Hz, no issues there either. However, once I restart the PC I'm greeted by the infamous White, Red, blue, green flashing color screen.

The only solution was to take my monitor back to 60 Hz before restarting, then it would boot fine. After which I could set 96 Hz again.

Is there any other solution that anyone has come across? Did not have any such issues with my previous GTX 780Ti

Specs:

* i5-3570k (very mild overclock)
* GTX 1070 FE (very mild overclock)
* ASRock Z77 Extreme4
* Windows 10 Pro (Up to date)
* Single QNIX 2710 monitor via DVI (overclocked to 96hz)

The issue I'm having is weird, so I'll walk you through it step by step.

1. Turn on computer. Bios loads into my BitLocker screen where I type in my password to decrypt the system.
2. The monitor turns completely blank, but still shows the blue light which means it's receiving signal.
3. My computer is at the windows login screen and fully functional, but I can't actually see anything. The screen is completely black.
4. If I plug in an unplugged HDMI cable into the 1070, as soon as I unplug that cable I get video to my monitor and it will work perfectly fine until I restart the computer.

The issue repeats itself every single time and I don't understand it because the only monitor that's connected is via DVI. It's acting as if it's sending the signal through the HDMI port and only realizes it needs to send it via DVI unless I plug something into the HDMI port and then unplug it.

Does anyone have any suggestions on what I should try?

Thanks!
