post #3731 of 25911
got my qnix today. bought it for $309 from hulustar (not perfect pixel). i can overclock to 96hz and 120hz easily stock cable. there are some minor concerns i have though. i can see some parts of the right side of the monitor getting darker when i increase the refresh rate above 80hz. it's slightly noticeable at 96hz. at 120hz... well it's pretty noticeable enough during bright scenes. also at 120hz there is some slight banding occuring but not noticeable enough unless i stare REALLY hard at the screen. any fixes or ICC profiles to fix any of the issues i mentioned?

aside from those my monitor has no issues with pixels. there is some BLB on the top and bottom. i'm sure some of it will go away whenever i get around to buying a vesa desk mount. that way i can unscrew the stock stand and fix some of the BLB issue at the same time. killing two birds with one stone.

overall great purchase. i'll keep it at 96hz for the time being. some of the darkness and banding issues on the right side of the monitor is way too obvious not to ignore it at 120hz. it would irritate me to no end in whatever i choose to do. unless someone knows an ICC profile for that issue maybe redface.gif

edit: i've tried all the ICC profile on the front page and from NCX.

I seem to have trouble getting about half of my games to accept higher than 60hz. I have the catleap inf installed.

Guild Wars 2, Supreme Commander 1, and Saints Row 3, no problem.
Supreme Commander 2, Planetside 2, Tribes Ascend - nope, still locked at 60 with or without vsync.

Did you overclock through Nvidia control panel or through the ToastyX method?

Nvidia control panel + catleap inf.

Doesn't the other method have issues with driver updates and stuff?

Also, doesn't it require you to run out of test mode constantly?

Thread Starter 
So i've been looking for a suitable monitor stand replacement for this and have seen the suggested gateway one (link here) that goes for $30. It may have the height adjustment, tilt, swivel, and rotation but it looks so damn plain and boring.

So i searched for a better one, and found it. It is an OEM HP monitor stand for a 22" they sell. Found it on ebay (link here) for $22 shipped. It had some weird hp connector plate on there, but once you simply unscrew the HP connector plates, a 100mm vesa mounting plate is revealed. I then used the screws I just took off, and a washer for each screw to mount the monitor. It is sturdy as hell, and has height adjustment, screen rotation, tilt, and swivel. At the tallest height extension, the monitor has enough clearance for screen rotation to portrait.

Bottom line: Looks great, no visible HP branding on it, tilt, swivel, rotation, height adjustments, and only $22 shipped.

Here are some pics.

Lowest height setting (there is a locking mechanism at the lowest height, feels very sturdy To release it, press button on back of stand.)




Tallest height




A little cable organizer pass-through thing.  Works great for a keyboard wire.




Side profile, lowest height.




Tallest height, and maximum tilt and swivel.




Edit: Monitor rotation at the tallest height setting.

Looks nice. Certainly better than those ugly and expensive ergotron and 3m ones. Haven't seen the gateway though.

I personally would like a taller one, but I guess I'm better off just putting a book under the stand or something, because realistically they don't get taller without getting an articulated ergotron arm or wall mount.

i tried that profile but it was a bit dark for me even at max brightness. in the end i went with manju's 96hz glossy icc profile. he probably had the same glossy panel batch as me.

edit: now i'm using this 96hz profile from NCX from browsing through the pages about this monitor on hardforum
https://rapidshare.com/#!download|689p1|3236343615|Qnix96hz16BitLut.icm|96|0|0|1|referer-3341857B9445894E9FF5301434D39FAA
definitely a great ICC profile. i use it at max brightness.

i did. that's why i edited my post a few mins after i posted. unless people read NCX as something else. and i do follow him on hardforum as well. he's the first guy i go to see if he has reviewed it.
