My Tempest OC shows the BIOS if theres no secondary monitors attached - an HDMI HDTV connection works tho (both show the BIOS). This is with a Radeon 7970

Not sure how much this helps but i have a GTX570 and a Mobo with a video chipset. When connected to the 570 i see the bios. When connected to the Mobo i do not but i always get to windows.

Unfortunately.

That's what I do right now to see my BIOS, as my Qnix doesn't show BIOS on my GTX 680.

That is pretty weird, I have a crappy 560ti and my bios work perfectly including safe mode and any other functions like booting from a cd.

But on the uniformity I think its luck of the draw just like with the people that have less backlight bleeding then others, the same goes for uniformity issues and image retention when oced.

Weird, eh? I never understood it, why my HD 5770 works fine but my GTX 680 doesn't.

Yeah, to different extents. It is a common feature to almost every Qnix overclock where it's been measured though - including mine. I haven't found image retention - lucky me!

Since I have $210 in gift certificates at amazon, and there are a few sellers of this on there, would getting it from amazon be a good idea? I've been looking at 27" 1440 monitors for almost a year now. I've been trying to find a monitor that I can get from there, but have been weighing the cost vs build quality and returnability issues that we all know about. I don't even care about overclocking, but nice black levels are something I'm looking for.

I have found that manually adjusting timings can reduce the bad uniformity. One of the main things that seemed to effect mine was the "total pixels" this is likely due to the pixel clock getting lowered.

The "problem" could also be construed to be with your motherboard. Either way, the BIOS screen isn't talking to the monitor - they speak different languages.

My X-star overclocked at 120Hz doesn't have any patchy areas, also no IR. However, I do notice that the gamma correction appears to drop considerably. I know others a have mentioned "brightness" drops, but I'm pretty sure its actually the gama.

Can anyone who has REALLY pushed this monitor post their timings. I have gotten pretty far myself but i think it ould be neat to see what others are doing and it may be some help to other members that are stuck at 96hz or have 120hz but have side effects.

Well I have gotten to 134hz without patching the drivers, I also kept the timings on automatic in the nvidia control panel.
