I think I remember hearing that to get the bios to show up during boot will just depend on your motherboard and/or graphics card compatibility since these monitors are so basic.

I remember some Catleaps had a 30sec cold boot time.

With mine the screen turns on after a few secs, then the bios shows a few secs later. Maybe I just have a slow mobo rolleyes.gif

Finally received my Matte QNIX earlier today. Ordered a pixel perfect from green-sum. Only paid £19 VAT + £5 handing Total price was £~225

Man this monitor is incredible. No dead/stuck pixels or BLB, just perfect. Not even comparable to my rusty old Samsung 206bw.

I was not much of a believer in the TN panel horror stories and the poor viewing angles until I had something to compare it to. The color shift on this tiny 20" monitor is apparent even when moving my head a couple of inches up or down. I can't believe I was trying to do photoshop work on my old Samsung. The colors don't even look right and the contrast is way off. Compared to the QNIX the colors are really creamy/yellow and dull. Shame there's not much I can do about that, not that I know of. Now I just need to get another one like this to replace the Samsung.

Haven't tried Overclocking it yet or calibrating, I'm sure it'll look even better once I do.


Sorry about the photographs, my camera is pretty awful in low light conditions or any conditions for that matter. That is not BLB you're seeing in the bottom image, that's a flashlight so you can actually see the name of the monitor.

COuld be, could also be your hardware combo. I have a Catleap 2B and on my personal computer with a 990FX chipset board and a GTX670 I can see the bios perfectly fine and it is as you say, the screen comes on and I can see the bios a second or two later. With this monitor though I use it at work on an H67 chipset with an Nvidia GT610 GPU (I dont game at work) and it works fine but I dont have any image on the screen at all until Windows has fully booted and is ready to login. Both are Nvidia GPUs (although very different) and the drivers are the same on both. They both have only a single dual DVI input on the monitor so no real differences there. The biggest different is just that one uses a 990FX chipset and the other uses and H67 chipset. One shows the bios, the other doesnt. I dont care that much since I never need the bios accessed at work, but for some this could be a real issue. Both boards have UEFI bios too, so it isnt a difference between something like that either.

EDIT: oh, and I cant use safe mode at work as the monitor wont work unless the driver is loaded with Windows (which is why I cant see the bios in the first place). At home I do not need the driver loaded for the monitor to work, just to be able to overclock it and set other resolutions.

Would i be able to run one of these monitors with a single Sapphire Radeon 7870 graphics card? I would like to overclock it as well. For example how will it play battlefield 3?

Got my Qnix today from dream-seller. Paid $308.90. No dead pixels or BLB. It was packaged exactly the same as Heliar's panel - down to the color of the tape on the screen protector. Quite pleased with mine. Stand sucks.

With a 770 or a 7970 you remove that bottleneck and i think you would definitely be able to run 120fps in even more games than me. There will always be a few that you will have trouble with such as Crysis, skyrim and a few others. With a new build you can take advantage of SSDs and the newer generation of CPUs you should be fine with any combination of those cards with most games (unless you go crazy with Aliasing options).

Best thing to do would be to take a look at some professional reviews for those cards. Most of them are using up to date equipment paired with a multitude of cards and give 1440p/1600p results.

At any rate i am in the same boat and am dying to build a new machine but i am waiting for AMD compatible MoBos to get pcie 3.0

The 7970's needed two crossfire bridges I tried one crossfire bridge and it was more Microstutter. And three 7970's at 1440p with 120hz were worse than 2 7970's with two bridges at 1440p and 120hz because of the crossfire bandwidth limit. So now with one 780 I'm getting about 70% of the FPS of two 7970's and about 55% of the FPS of three 7970's and its still looks better in most games. Its easier to overclock monitor with nvidia without test mode as well. So keep all those things in mind.

The new AMD drivers might fix some of those problems with stutter. But I held my breath for a fix for about 18 months and couldn't wait any longer. I was debating still waiting for the fix until I found that the crossfire bridge was limited. Once I found that out I knew I had to at less sell one 7970 and use only two or get something else. I'm very happy now though and already been gaming more than before less hassle with one card. And less driver tweaking with nvidia.

I have one 680 right now, I could upgrade to anything I want, but when I run games on ultra even though I may get 15 fps I don't SEE a difference worth $400 or more. U can then pick up the second card at your discretion....

Thanks for all the valuable input guys. So after debating between the 770 and the 7970GHZ and checking out various reviews/benchmarks from Toms and Anandtech I think the smartest move I can do for now at least is go with a single 770 on a SLI compatible board and future proof it that way. A single 770 should hold me off pretty good for now and once games get even more demanding or I crave a bit more performance I can always add an additional 770 to really turn it up once I got the cash. And like previously noted above, I won't have to deal with the problems ATI has with Crossfire at the moment, according to the reviews 770 SLI is working very well in almost all games that support SLI. And another bonus is presumably easier monitor overclocking with Nvidia (which I did not know) as mentioned.

OCing on AMD is painless. Less than 5 minutes from reading the instructions you will be making custom refresh rates.

Crossfire problems have (afaik) been sorted in the latest beta driver, and where AMD had problems Nvidia SLi also had problems.

Make sure if you plan on keeping the 770 for a while get a 4GB version. Games are already pushing 2GB. If you go SLI later you'll need 4GB on each card.

Alternatively you could wait till HD9xxx is released later this year - but that's a while away.
