The Price over time trendline in the OP under expandable section "Members List Form Submission Trends, Analysis" suggests an increasing of price.

I ordered from green sum, that's unlucky mate!! Unless you can get him to cover the return postage etc, then I would recommend a partial refund. Make a fuss though, keep messaging open a case contact ebay etc, all these things tend to get the sellers to snap into action. I hope my monitor hasn't suffered the same fate as yours!! Good luck

This should be added to the OP for sure.
...............................H.....................V
Active pixels...2560...............1440
Front porch.......48.....................2
Sync width.........32.....................2
Total pixels.....2595...............1444
(this was only possible after the new monoprice cable before with the stock cable i was only able to get to 2652x1445)
Pixel clock@120hz..............449Mhz (thought it was 443 but i guess i saw wrong)
Pixel clock@152hz..............569Mhz
...................................................^
this is the highest i have been able to go with CRU. If you use just the nvidia control panel and use CVT reduced you are at like 500Mhz already. With just the control panel i was able to get 134Hz which is 559Mhz before things got messy. Thinking of this as a kinda limit i tried to get the pixel clock as low as possible and then try again. This got me to 142hz which was just under the pixel clock of what i got before confirming they are very relative to each other. Next after adding the monoprice cable that was better than stock i got to 152Hz at just over the original 559Mhz showing some bandwidth improvement. Now since i hate uniformity issues i have set it back to 120hz but with the newly found total pixels and overall lower pixel clock. This reduced the "strain" i guess that was on the cable for the overclock and vastly decreased negative overclocking effects(gamma shift was better, uniformity was pretty much gone, etc)

Also using this same methodology i tried downsampling the screen to see how high the pixel count could go on this monitor. I am not going to get too much into it but i was able to get 4476x2342@30hz with an overall pixel clock of 561Mhz. Please be careful when downsampling though as it can cause the monitor to go into test mode and also corrupt the start resolution. If you do get where restarting the PC does not bring the picture back connect a separate monitor and boot windows, then connect the Qnix as secondary. After that you can switch it to primary and go on as normal. If anyone sees anywhere this can be improved PLEASE jump in. I have done a lot of reading but there could always be something i missed.

Hopefully this helps some people get 120hz or at least some better results at that refresh thumb.gif

So I pulled the trigger, got my QNIX from greensum W/O PP.


Looks great other than a little backlight bleed.


Questions:

For the overclocking tutorial I opened and ran the Nvidia Pixel Clock Patecher. It showed a bunch of stuff and said path? So i clicked patch and then ran test mode, but no test mode logo showed up or anything. I restarted, changed Nvidia control panel settings and all, and it I believe its running at 96hz. Any way to check? Does patching the Nvidia card do anything bad to the card or the system? Can it ever? If it can't why does it require a "patch". One last thing: Should I just leave it at 96hz? If not is there a way I can easily switch from 96 to 60 because as it stands it seems like a I have to switch in the OCer, NVCP and Windows.


THANNNKK YOU!!!

Yeah it really is unlucky. I already have messaged him through ebay and opened a case , sent him pics and etc. I sent a message yesterday but had no response by 4pm, and they usually respond before noon but once I opened a case he responded to me within 3 hours. Funny how it works. I hope all goes well too.. here's what he had to say so far.

"Hello, this is Green sum. We are deeply sorry that if you have any inconvenience, we are going to support our best for you. Please don't worry about it. We have the policy about the defective item and return. Because we need to check the fault with the manufacture for sure, please understand the steps. As you know, we've been communicating through the ebay messages about our policy. "
Quote:
"We informed the bleeding policy as your questions before you ordered below. "All of our monitors get tested before they are shipped out. However, in rare cases the item may have small backlight bleeding by the nature of manufacturing. This does not cause any major problem for users but the light can be shown in the dark place. Please consider this case before making the purchase." We are informing this policy due to we need the warranty from the manufacture also."
Quote:
"BTW, if you would like to return the item and change it ,we are going to do for you at this time. Actually, we need the time to check this pictures with our manufacture, but we are going to reserve to pick it up as soon as possible after your confirmation as our service. We are looking forward your sure confirmation. Thank you. "

I'll try to ask for a partial refund too depending on the amount they offer, ill decide whether I should just keep it or get an exchange. And do what pastuch did and bend the metal frame straight.
