Yes but if you run any refresh rate stability tests they will not be able to accurately report your refresh rate. To egt that to work simply temporarily disable your 60hz monitor.

i followed the short guide on the front page for the pixel patch and run Test Mode, but when i enable Test Mode and reboot, i don't see the watermark. i have a single GTX 680.
Back when I got my Catleap 2B a long time ago and did all this patching and test mode stuff, I never saw any watermark either. However I was able to properly overclock fine and go past the pixel limits of an unpatched driver, so I knew it was working. No one could ever explain to me why I didnt ever see a watermark either.

There are several reasons you would not see a watermark. Anything from that registry entry being corrupted to the picture file containing the display property of the watermark being missing or broke. Also, you just said you messed around with patching and then turned around and said you never patched your driver. If i ignore that and you never did patch the video driver i would want to see what driver version and how it was installed. Knowing this it could be troubleshot why it worked. The fact no-one ever could explain it sounds like a lack of information.

If i past the pixel limit without patched drivers i would be very curious to see if there was frame skipping. This would compensate for the limit not being broken. also if it did not frame skip it also would be nice to run a horizontal line test to see if the set refresh rate was actually displaying the reported frame count using something like powerstrip.

But who knows you could have been too cool to need the patch LOL rolleyes.gif

This feels like one of the best computer related deals I have ever gotten.

Yea, i feel the same way. I only buy things when i feel like it is a good deal. Rarely buy anything msrp

Umm ok now that your comment has been edited it makes sense but most of what my comment said is still valid. (too lazy to edit it to match yours)

Well I've seen it pretty much totally blend into certain busy backgrounds...

ok so update on this BLB. i tried loosening the bottom corner screws and don't think it made it any better. then i noticed there's a small gap between the bezel and the screen, and when i apply some pressure, it seems to make the BLB go away.

so knowing this, what's the next step? taking this thing apart?

Well I just wanted to stop by and thank everyone for this thread. I read a great part of it including the first page and after a few days of research I finally pulled the trigger on the Qnix. I cannot express how happy and amazed I am with this monitor! It exceeded my expectations as some of the negative reviews and complaints (which are few) made me stay grounded on what I would get in the box.

Behold, I went with Green-sum as per the excellent reviews and feedback on here and he did not disappoint. Paid $289 for the non "Pixel Perfect" as recommended on the FAQ and I got a nearly flawless panel with very minimal (barely there) BLB and just ONE dead pixel at the bottom near center as you can see (it is right above my mouse cursor). It is not a bright pixel, it is just a darker non active pixel that you cannot almost see with the naked eye, you really need to actually put your face to the screen.

I took a distanced picture of the monitor as instructed in the FAQ to not exaggerate the BLB and this is the most accurate shot I got. I can definitely live with that for the $289 I paid.

I am currently on a MacBook Pro with a HD6770M and I did manage to OC to 84hz using SwitchResX, via a miniDP to Dual Link DVI adapter I got on Amazon. (For anyone wondering if it works with Macs). At 84 it is a stable OC but I do get a bit of color artifacts, though few. I am staying at 60 on the Mac as I don't plan to game on it and will be building a gaming PC soon to power this monster of a monitor. Hoping for 120hz gaming @ 1440p.

So from me, Green-Sum gets a thumbs up and so does this monitor. It is definitely worth it and don't let the few negative experiences deter you from it if bang-for-buck and value is your #1 priority.

To add a final note, I am using the recommended Asus PB278Q V3 ICC Profile and color is just amazing.

Thanks again everyone.

Glad you got a good one bud.. That BLB you have in the bottom looks like the type that can be removed by loosening the two middle screws in the back.. smile.gif
