I game, but don't really play online fps much. I'd love native display port on a monitor.

So it's been a week or more with my new X-Star, overclocked at 96hz and no problems whatsoever.

No burn in, no nothing. So very happy. Really wish I could get a second one now, before the price goes up.

Hello Overclock.net!
I'm now a proud owner of two QX2710, and I love them.
At 120Hz, i get stripes in a vertical way.
Could that be because I use the standard dual link dvi cable?
(Info: My GPU is a 7950.)
I ordered two slightly shorter cables. (1.5m)
Hopefully I can reach 120Hz with that.

My other problem is, that my GPU only has one native DVI port. I ordered this adapter, to run the second monitor.
Decreases such an adapter the bandwith of the connection, so that I can't even reach 96Hz on the second monitor?

Thank you for response. smile.gif

I belive the adapters do something to limit oc. I can't get 96 on my 2nd or 3rd monitors because of them.

Damn, that would be bad. I don't need 120Hz at the second monitor, but 96 would be nice, hopefully I'm lucky.

Just bought a QNIX matte pixel perfect from green-sum. Should be arriving sometime this week. It's been a while since I've looked on these forums. I first found these forums when the original korean monitors were getting popular. I bought myself an Achieva Shimian back then and have been really happy with that purchase (although the tempered glass at the bottom peaks out a little from time to time, but I can push it back in those 1-2 mm or so, haha).

Now I get to compare the matte to glossy and see the difference of possible overclocking potential. This new monitor is going to replace my 25.6 inch 1920x1200 asus monitor. This should be fun smile.gif. Hope I don't get any play on the monitor because I have never opened a monitor before, haha.

Me neither but just opening the bezel is easy. Its the frame that's touchy.

It was quite difficult to get the metal frame off and that was using some tools that are supposed to aid in taking stuff apart...had to get a second set of hands to help me out.
