[Official] The Qnix/X-Star 1440p Monitor Club - Page 42

post #411 of 25887
Hey Everyone,
First post on the boards smile.gif Just had a Qnix arrive from Hulustar and it looks stunning, but i've noticed something. I wondering if someone else could take a look at theirs and see if it's doing the same.

If you bring up steam with the standard skin and have a look at your library list of games, non installed games are grey and installed games are white.
When looking at the non installed games you can see that the text is shimmering/flickering against the black background, I had this checked with my fiancée who said that it looked like it was skipping/flickering as well.
It gives you bloody sore eyes that's for sure

The best way to see it is to look at some other text that is near the grey text of a non installed game and you'll see the shimmer, it's really horrible.

This is at 2560x1440 @60hz/96hz/110hz etc...

I'm hoping this is a cable issue as i've got another DVI dual link cable on it's way. Just wanted to check with other people to see if they have encountered it before biggrin.gif

And also a big thanks to the OC.net community for all the help in regards to the PLS screens and helping me and many other NZ'ers decide which screen to get thumb.gif

Have you tried it without the pixel clock patcher, you shouldn't need that

Yup, just arrived today. 0 dead/stuck pixels, but with backlight bleed on bottom corners.

I tried it without the pixel clock patch afterwards as well and it was the same result.

And cooling the display controler would not really help with overclocking.

So you're trying to tell me that the actual panel itself is crashing, and not the controller?

That doesn't make any sense to me. The pixels just display what they are told. Why would they all just uniformly stop at the same seemingly random time? Surely if it was the panel itself crashing, you would have some of it working and some of it not working, at least at first.

I find it hard to believe that every single pixel is 100% equal across an entire panel, but different panels vary wildly, considering they're all cut from the same sheets. It's much more likely that a single chip in the circuit board is malfunctioning, changing the signal as a whole before it even reaches the panel.


I'm not saying that once you get to that point, that there isn't any image persistence in the panel itself, but that's a symptom, not a cause.

That's some bad news... Maybe it has something to do with the drivers being messed up from trying to patch the nvidia driver. Try full driver wipe including registry clean and reinstall?

Reseat the cabling inside. If it isn't that, then do a return.

Is electrical tape the surefire way to fix back light bleed? Are there alternative methods if one doesn't work?

Also, the stuck pixel I found earlier might have a neighbour. It's weird because they're both red, but one only appears on a white background, and the other only appears on a black background.

Reinstalled and updated Nvidia drivers to 320 followed by a registry clean. Only applied the Catleap driver and attempted to OC using Nvidia control panel. Nada. I tried it give the pixel clock patcher another shot. Nada.

Heres my Glossy X-Star bleed through, I have no stuck pixels that i can see so far though. Havent tried overclocking yet. Anything i can do about the top right corner? or should i just be happy?

Stuck is not dead (e.g. black). There are 'LCD tests' on the web that probably have a good chance of unsticking them (as could normal use).

As for the tape it's pretty much the only thing you can do. I'd use it for awhile first and see if you really notice it day-to-day.

How long after ordering from hulustar did you guys get tracking info? It's been 24 hours since I ordered mine, and I have a tracking number but when I go to DHL's website it doesn't recognize it.
