No I don't have Pro. I think the options don't show because, as titanuk said, I have Hibernate disabled, which turns the options off by default.

Is there anyone here that actually changed from qnix to any g-sync display and can maybe tell me if it was worth it or more like a sidegrade.

My qnix is 96hz capable only
Yes, I switched to an XB271HU (refurb on ebay, $500+tax) although I feared it would be a sidegrade, it was MOST DEFINITELY an upgrade. The colors are so amazing, the pixel response time is MIND BLOWING, THE INPUT LAG is non existent. it turns on so much quicker, it adjusts so much better. My only regred is not getting one sooner.

Just for emphasis I'll say it again THE COLORS ARE FREAKING AMAZING. it's like going from TN to IPS all over again - or maybe even further. the jump is so huge even with my Qnix calibrated and all that. The gamma and contrast on the XB271HU is lightyears ahead of the Qnix.

It's completely unaffordable, but it's also completely worth it. Go broke getting it, for real. biggrin.gif 2 months later and that "new awesome thing" feeling just won't wear off. It's awesome every time I turn it on.

Not in stock on ebay ATM, but it always comes back in. Just search XB271HU, include buy it now only, sort by lowest price and you'll find it sold by Acer Refurbished when it's back in stock. thumb.gif

my hibernation has been off since day one, dont like the .sys file size it creates.
And I still have the options in that image, main reason I asked if you have Pro, and you just solved it.

Are any of you with my problem using the 368.51 hotfix driver? It's unlisted on NVIDIA's website, but I found a link to it from another forum. In the notes, it says:

"This is a GeForce Hot Fix driver, version 368.51 that addresses the following issue:



• Occasional desktop flicker when launching games on high refresh rate monitors."

This isn't the same issue we're experiencing, but perhaps it is a related issue?

I am currently downloading the driver to test it, but it would be easier if someone who has downloaded it is able to tell me whether or not it works before i have to go grab another monitor to boot in the case that the driver has no effect.

It doesn't work. However regarding you boot issue, just shutdown and restart 3 times, and it will boot right through. Use the shutdown button on PC (Single tap, not force off)

Third time's the charm, everytime

Edit: Also the hotfix driver reduced my 3D mark score

Ah, at the time I had a multi level desk and it was on the top with the tips of the feet overhanging to the point where it would probably touch my keyboard.
Now I've taken my desk apart so it's not so retarded and gotten one of these to solve all my problems. I cannot tell you how nice a vesa arm is, you really have to get one. I got my used (but looked brand new) for $89 on amazon. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00MIBN16O/

Being able to adjust the monitor however I want it is awesome. No longer am I leaning forward to get it closer or getting back and neck aches from sitting incorrectly to see it, not I only get back and neck aches because I'm thin as a rail and my chair has about an inch of padding. rolleyes.gif Still, it's a lot more comfortable of a setup.

You will need some rubber washers though since the vesa holes aren't deep enough. The washers need to be 1.6mm thick.

Do have a vesa mount, its just I move the monitor around a bit (short reason: I have a 46" TV in the same room so I move the Primary monitor to the edge of the desk for Netflix while I play my consoles, small footprint helps a ton)
but my vesa mount is holding up my other 24" 1080p monitors in Portrait, so I can read lengthy docs easier for work.
so its more a personal dislike, not a functional one. =D

The issue definitely has something to do with a 330 MHz pixel clock, as I am able to boot at 86 Hz with tightened timings with a pixel clock of 329.5640, but the second I go to 87 Hz and cross 330, I can't boot. I am able to boot as 81 Hz at normal timings with a pixel clock of 326.2939 MHz, but I can't boot at 82 Hz at normal timings with a pixel clock of 330.3222 MHz.

Just for emphasis I'll say it again THE COLORS ARE FREAKING AMAZING. it's like going from TN to IPS all over again - or maybe even further. the jump is so huge even with my Qnix calibrated and all that. The gamma and contrast on the XB271HU is lightyears ahead of the Qnix.

It's completely unaffordable, but it's also completely worth it. Go broke getting it, for real. biggrin.gif 2 months later and that "new awesome thing" feeling just won't wear off. It's awesome every time I turn it on.

Nice to hear that. I'm goign to get the ROG pg279q as that's the only one I can get here in South Africa. Let's hope i get a panel without massive Back light bleed. There is only 1 left here as all sold out ATM. The shop told me they will keep it for me. I'm sure the 165hz will be a huge upgrade from my 96-110hz and not to mention the added benefit of ULMB and G-sync (I know you can only use one or the other). I think if I play bo2 with my buddies once in a while the ULMB will be of good use to me maybe even in bf4 due to the graphics settings I use I will get 120fps most of the time.

Again Thanks for the comment. I'm not to worried about the costs. I still think the Qnix qx2710 has outstanding quality for what you pay at least mine has so I will keep it as either a second monitor or take it to work.


Can anyone tell me if the Qnix qx2710 monitor will work with 4770k onboard graphics if I use displayport to DVI? The qnix i have only comes with DVI.
