Is it okay to leave the monitor overclocked all the time? Has anyone noticed any negative effects? Or should I just overclock it when gaming and reset it when I am browsing the internet and such

I run 120hz 24/7 and the only hing i have noticed on occasion is a bit of burn in but it goes away after a short time(i have yet to have to use the black and white screen method to get rid of it)

Okay, thanks biggrin.gif
Also I have another question. Do you need to set the refresh rate in CRU and Windows? Or only in CRU? Because when I have the refresh rate set to 60 in windows and a 120hz profile for CRU, it seems like i can get 120hz in games but only 60 on the desktop. Am I actually only getting 60 without setting up the overclock in windows? Or is it 60hz for the desktop and 120hz for games?

You have to set the refresh rate in you video card settings..By making a profile in Cru it only allows you to change to 120hz in your gpu settings.. If you have not changed it there then you have only been running 60hz..

So although I'm planning to return my monitor (too much BLB - although I'm hoping to get a replacement) I decided to try o/cing. 120 got weird lines so I went to 110 but that got stuttering screens. Stuttering as in screen seems to jump when I ult tab from gaming. Although it doesn't do that while gaming or watching videos i decided to go to 96.

I find it ironic that even at 96 how much smoother things are but because of it I can notice more ghosting... rolleyes.gif

+ $40.00 shipping
Communication was OK, he said, that he will send me the best monitor wink.gif
I wanted to send it via EMS with value $185.

He sent it on 23.5. and on 24.5. was monitor in Czech republic and on the same date it was Handed over to Customs.
I had to send them some documents and pay them for the Customs procedure. mad.gif M G
Post Car arrived on 30.5. and nobody told me how much I had to pay for customs and they didnt have my phone nubmer so I had to catch the car.
I couldnt pay with credit card so I had to run to the ATM.
Customs was $65.

Monitor is without dead pixels, only with some really small light bleeding smile.gif
With stock cable i OCd it to 100hz without problems. With 120hz I had few blue lines, but it was running well. I have to buy better Dual-DVI cable.
Total price was $436.


My monitor is running fine, still on 100Hz with GTX470, Dual Core OCd to 3,01GHz

Is there any chance, to connect PS3 via Dual DVI with some adapter?

These monitors are not HDCP compliant so the PS3 will not allow itself to be used on your QNix.

That said, a quick google search for "Bypass PS3 HDCP" got some results, you should have a look at those.

On the issue of adaptors: I've heard they are not good for OCing a monitor, but I doubt a PS3 could push out 120fps anyway.

I tried 115 Hz last night and it seemed to work. I added a 120 Hz option using the tool, but CCC doesn't show it as an option. I'm not sure what that is about.

Is anyone else having really fast burn-in with these PLS panels? I had a web browser open for probably an hour straight last night and as soon as I went to do something else (game), I noticed I could see the browser's title bar, address bar, and search bar superimposed over the image. It faded gradually.

These monitors don't have a scaler. Shouldn't be able to connect anything but a graphics cards to these things.
