[Official] The Qnix/X-Star 1440p Monitor Club - Page 36

FWIW, I also think the overclocking is limited by heat. My monitor will do 120hz fine when I just turn it on, but after a while I start noticing scan lines occasionally. Normally like the top line of the screen when a window is maximized. I also noticed that the Slickdeals website was jumping around in it's frame at 120hz on occasion... Strangeness.

Luckily no damage to the monitor. No dead pixels, some blacklight bleed from what appears like is the panel being pushed on by the frame at a couple places... Not sure if this is fixable.

Overclocked to 120Hz fine using shipped cable, but noticed scan lines occasionally. LCD Reduced in CRG helped alleviate most of these, then checking 'Reduce DVI frequency on high-resolution displays' in CCC removed what I thought was all the rest. However after running Bioshock Infinite benchmark I noticed them again at the very top (like the top line only). I started to calibrate and noticed at gamme 1.35 I could see scan lines a lot all over the screen, but only at that gamma (very strange).

I ended up lowering it down to 96Hz where it seems absolutely fine. My 7870 can't push 120fps in any game anyway.

Here's a shot of my blacklight bleed...



That big thing in the middle is not some deformity, my office has TONS of windows and ambient light. It's just a matte reflection.
What is LCD reduced inCRG? And what is CCC? catalyst control centre?

CCC is Catalyst Control Center. CRU is custom resolution utility you must use to overclock the monitor. LCD reduced is an option in that to lower some sort of scanning values so you can run 120hz with less issues.

Thanks that's great.

My QNIX arrived today (tuesday) - ordered thursday so five days from order to arrival!

As far as I can tell there are no dead or stuck pixels (I used UDPixel to check and I couldn't see any). I can't see any backlight bleed but I don't use it in the dark and I am not going out og my way to check (as what I don't see won't bother me!).

Tested a few games and 1920x1200 is scaled to fit (with black bars left and right!). So even if my 5870 isn't up to 2560x1440 for some games it won't be a hardship to play them at a lower resolution.

I have not rebooted or shutdown as the monitor came on at 2560x1440 as soon as it was pugged in.

Still don't know if it is glossy or matte!

How does this monitor compare to the

27" Monoprice IPS CrystalPro 2560x1440 LED Monitor $366 + Shipping ?

I just bought the XStar one for $280

Also how do you overclock a monitor to 120hz O.o

No bleed or dead pixels on a $300 1440p monitor? You should sound way happier! wink.gif

Sorry - after spending an hour getting it on my dersk I was relieved it worked at all! My old monitor was attached to a monitor arm and the cable that comes with the QNIX was only long enougth if I placed it where the old monitor was!

I am really pleased. Honest!
