[Official] The Qnix/X-Star 1440p Monitor Club - Page 369

post #3681 of 25469
After reading this thread (yes, ALL of it) and the corresponding thread on OverclockersClub, I purchased mine last thursday and rec'd it tuesday. Really, I couldn't be more happy. Got mine form Hulustar for 317, with the "free expedited shipping and pixel perfect", and my monitor has no dead pixels and no noticable BLB. Thanks for the info, guys. This feels like one of the best computer related deals I have ever gotten.

so it's generally recommended to NOT keep the monitor on OC'd refresh rates? only for gaming, is this correct?

Hmm, you're supposed to see the watermark...

Just follow this - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WdXWNgW-GU8

- Patch drivers with Pixel Patch
- reboot
- Enable Test Mode
- reboot
- Use CRU to create new resolution/Hz entries (just watch the vid above)
- reboot
- Select your desired refresh rate
- reboot
- Use this program to remove the watermark
- reboot
- Enjoy
