Just got mine today, 1 stuck pixel on the left side, and noticeable back light bleeding on the bottom right. Here's a pic


What do you think my options are? Is it bad enough to message the seller (hulustar), or try to open it up?

When I try to apply the NVIDIA Pixel Clock Patcher, all the limits are found and I apply the patch. I then restart my PC but my resolution has reverted to 800x600 and I can't find my Nvidia Control Panel. I have to unpatch and restart for my drivers to appear.

I think the pixel clock patch is only for AMD users. Nvidia doesn't have a driver-restricted clock limit that AMD has

Try pushing and bending that spot a bit, play with it.
You'll notice that you can get it away. Rip that **** open.
I still run mine open, had the same amount of bleed like you did. Now I have 0 bleeding.
1 dead pixel on the bottom left aswell here. Can't see it on normal viewing distance.

So after having my refresh at 100 for a couple of hours today I'm now experiencing the "burn-in". I dropped back to 60 and left everything off for a couple hours while I ran errands. Came back and it's still there thumbsdownsmileyanim.gif

My friend has a Overlord Tempest OC version. When OC'ed to 120hz, the overlord has a loud "coil whine" sound. Also particularly noticeable when on a blank white document or blank white browser page.

Does the Qnix have this whining sound when overclocked? I mean I wear headphones when gaming so that won't be an issue while gaming but when I"m doing other tasks I don't wear headphones.

No. Mine does not have it.
I also haven't read here that anyone else has it.
This monitor has a external power brick and doesn't have any coils inside anyways.

The "burn in" goes away pretty quick on mine. Just leave it on a white page for some minutes if you're that concerned about it.

I've never tried to open a monitor before. How difficult will the job be, and what kind of tools do I need before starting?

A guy posted some videos in the other thread (I think it was the other one) and I made a picture with all the clips aswell.
It really isn't hard.
Just unscrew the 4 screws on the back and take a flat thing like a canopener or a butter knife and try loosening the front from the back.
I haven't damaged anything while doing so.

A flat head screwdriver or similar flat edged hard rubber or plastic thing would work. You can look at the videos for help that are posted in the OP, or there is a picture in the OP under wntrsnowg mod. It isn't really that hard, just pry at the certain clip points around the monitor casing edge and it comes apart.

edit: picture showing the clip locations

Is there a reason for the price difference between x-star and qnix? It seems they both have the same pixel policies and shipping so dont know why there is a big price difference between the two? Anyone know?
