Adjusting values in CRU can also help but it's pretty trial-and-error. I figure it helps stabilize the signal by reducing noise and errant frequencies but I'm no electrical engineer.

Happy i got square trade in case i break it lol..

I think the lines show up in dark areas buddy. Alan Wake as you know if a dark game mostly at night so it was more visible at the time I was playing.

Hence my question about the test. Ideally I'd like a programme to push the monitor to high refresh rates, whilst displaying different background colours.

Maybe if I run gpu-z render test mode in the background and have lcd test running it may work. (In fact let me try that out)

Got my matte qnix in the mail, DHL just started showing progress and it's being shipped from Green Sum.

Green-sum says shipping takes 2-5 days, and I live in New York. DHL's estimate is June 24th to July 1st, which is pretty damn long. Anyone have experience with shipping from Green-sum that can give me an idea of how long this is gonna take? Because I have that hybrid feeling of excitement/ impatience. Tanks.

so if there are certain games my PC cant handle at 1440p yet (lets say Arma 3) and i run it at 1080p will it still look the same as if i were using a 1080p monitor? sorry if this is a dumb question...

Nope itll either look a bit worse if you choose to use your GPU to scale (fitting 1080p in 1440p space) or youll have a border around it, not taking up entire screen

What i usually do is just turn down other settings - but its up to you
post #3256 of 25899
Yes and the displays themselves can not do scaling thus why consoles can't work.

If you were to run centered 1920x1080 on this display, the size of the image would be 20.25" diagonal. I calculated this using http://pixeldensitycalculator.com/.

2560x1440 @ 27" = 108.79 ppi
1920x1080 @ 20.25 = 108.79 ppi

That's pretty small, might be difficult to play games on that size.

If you have a game that just wont run well at all you could create a custom resolution that would put you somewhere between the two.

2240x1260 would be around 23.6" diagonal if centered.

I personally can't play games on a screen smaller than 23", it hurts my eyes. In FPS games I also can't see enemies easily enough.

I'd also never recommend stretching a resolution to full screen. It takes away from the point of this monitor, which is high pixel density and beautiful colors.

I played 4 more hrs of bf3 with my stock cable and I no longer get the lines.. Only with my 24awg cable do I get them in certain grey screens..

I would really love to talk to a few people who own these monitors. I'm really looking into buying one. If anyone would like to give me more information on them, please PM me. Thanks
