[Official] The Qnix/X-Star 1440p Monitor Club - Page 2512

post #25111 of 25922
Hey guys, so what is the difference between the "Off-grade" version of the QNIX and the normal version? Like what about it makes it worth $50 less. Would it be safer to stick with the more expensive one?

JUST RECEIVED AN "OFF-GRADE" PANEL. its perfect!!!! No flaws what so ever. I literally got it set it up and immediately went into the NVIDIA control panel and overclocked to 96hz NO PROBLEM. ALSO does 110hz but 115 and 120 get green lines everywhere! THIS IS SO SICK!!! Im just wondering is it possible to achieve 120hz on this panel? Is there certain things i can try to achieve those? I would love a 120hz panel with 1440p for LOL WHAT like 270 CAD$

Hey just got an off-grade panel. Message the seller telling them you want the best of the "off-grade" panels since they have a lot in stock they can send you a picture of ones they can ship i got a call from south korea and this girl helped me out, bought one they said it had a slight yellow spot on it but iTS PERFECT, I CANT see any flaw with it so YOUR MILEAGE MAY VARY~

Okay thanks, Zee.

On another note, I just purchased a GTX 1070 and it's my understanding that there is a driver issue with the card that causes the QNIX monitor to **** up on computer restart once it gets above a certain clock rate (330MHz). Would it still be worth looking into getting a monitor like this? Does the function of the monitor still work okay if you clock it up after startup? I planned on getting a 1080p 144Hz monitor along with the QNIX.

The monitor can hit 80 Hz, 81 Hz fine and restart perfectly at stock timings with Pascal, but you will have trouble loading into Windows at any refresh rate past that, as 82 Hz or higher will surpass a 330 MHz pixel clock. Once you are loaded into windows, your overclock is limited by your panel rather than by Pascal, but if you forget to lower your pixel clock below 330 MHz and restart or shut your computer down at above 81 Hz, you will get a flashing screen in place of the Windows welcome screen.

How does it feel about just going to sleep and not restarting? And if I were to make the 1080p screen my main startup screen, would the QNIX still wig out? If so, could I just log in via the monitor that works and reduce the clock speed of the QNIX? Also, would unplugging the QNIX at startup and plugging it back in once windows is loaded avoid the issue?

It should be alright, as going to sleep doesn't log you out of Windows, but I don't put my computer to sleep so I can't say that for sure. I might test it later, but right now it would be very inconvenient.

And if I were to make the 1080p screen my main startup screen, would the QNIX still wig out?

Not sure, but if so you would probably be able to fix it by just unplugging the QNIX and leaving the 1080p screen plugged in. The QNIX would most likely be fixed upon reconnecting.

If so, could I just log in via the monitor that works and reduce the clock speed of the QNIX?

Once you're logged in via the monitor that works, you won't have to reduce the clock speed, because the issue is only present while logging into Windows.

Also, would unplugging the QNIX at startup and plugging it back in once windows is loaded avoid the issue?

If the QNIX was your only monitor, this wouldn't fix the issue. However, if you unplug the QNIX and leave the other monitor plugged in, Windows should just default to that monitor and it will work out fine.

The issues aren't a big deal if you have multiple monitors. It's more if this is your only monitor that the issues are a big PITA.

Ive heard theres a bios setting that can affect this aswell, yeah im super concerned about this aswell since I MAY be getting a gtx 1070 as well, but 1070 has these issues i would rather buy the new AMD cards because this monitor is TOO SEXY AT 1440P 105HZ FOR ME

A question:

The new RX 480s (at least, the reference editions) do NOT have a DVI port. Would connecting an ACTIVE DP adapter still allow me to enjoy the OC'd QX2710?


Also, I'm surprised off-grade is still like normal -- I've heard it can be much worse than typical QX2710s.
