None of those will work unless he has a real graphics card that has dual-link DVI outputs.

The 29" AOC q2963Pm will work.

1. I am planning on getting the Perfect Pixel model as I have read that if there is one bright pixel greensum will accept a return. Is this true?

2. If I get perfect pixel I expect a small amount of screen bleeding, but if there is a large amount will greensum take a return?

3. I am also planning on getting a square trade warranty for it, but cannot find a "monitor" section. Would it just be under the TV Warranty section?

4. My brother also wants one, but he does not have a video card, he only has a 3570k CPU on a GIGABYTE GA-Z77X-UD3H mobo. Will the monitor work off of that mobo? If not, will this one or this one (and is this 27" a better deal for my bro who wont be OCing) work?
As long as the monitor's got DisplayPort, you're golden.

Just received my monitor yesterday! 0 dead pixels. Ordered on Monday and received on Thursday. Opened up the monitor to remove the stand. With all the videos out, it was fairly simple. Pretty stoked about this monitor biggrin.gif

QX2710LED
Matte
Green-sum
110 hz stable OC with the stock DVI cable
$289.00 paid
There's some slight backlight bleeding on the right side and near the bottom right. I removed the two middle screws and it fixed a little of it.

And I think some more testing as well as more cases besides your own would be warranted before anything can be 'confirmed' either way. I have a GTX 480 I could try...

Its funny everyone on here that said nvidia should be better clocker. This also confirms the GPU has just as much to do with the overclock as the screen does.

No I didn't use CRU I used Precision.

But not sure If you understood what I said I said the 7970 overclocked my monitor much better up to 120hz. But the GTX 780 is worse. about 110hz.

My point was Nvidia vs. AMD don't matter one isn't better than another. I think its more that one GPU does better than the next GPU, which also means some people think there screen is limited to 100hz-110hz but it might be there GPU is really the place that is limiting them.

But I think I will try CRU as well, maybe it will be better for some reason.

After 2 days of non-stop research and looking around I decided on the QNIX QX2710 *Matte from green-sum. I hope I'm as happy as all of you when I hook it up.

First time post in any forum ever, I just couldn't find any info on my issue.
I got the qnix glossy back in April or May, all because of this thread, so thank you guys. Anyway, yesterday while the monitor was off I notice that air or dust bubbles stared to show on the screen. I was like "***". I can't find the reason as to how this is happening. They look like the bubbles that get trapped between a screen protector and a smartphone or tablet when the surface has lint, dust or just air.

They were NOT there before. I haven't done anything wierd to the monitor. Only thing I did was oc to 96hz.

If anyone has any experience with this, or suggestions, I would greatly appreciate it.

Gotcha, So I will get the 29" for my bro and the 27" Qniz for me. Still wondering about these though:

"

1. I am planning on getting the Perfect Pixel model as I have read that if there is one bright pixel greensum will accept a return. Is this true?

2. If I get perfect pixel I expect a small amount of screen bleeding, but if there is a large amount will greensum take a return?

3. I am also planning on getting a square trade warranty for it, but cannot find a "monitor" section. Would it just be under the TV Warranty section?
