So these are my first Korean displays. I made custom resolutions for them in NVIDIA Control Panel for 2560x1440 at 120Hz. They are both running perfect. Is there a stress test or anything I can do to make sure they will run long term at 120Hz? Sorry if this in a dumb question, I really couldn't find anything on it while searching the forums. Thanks for the help. thumb.gif

There is no really stress test that can perform that operation that anyone knows of right now but you can take a darker grey or pail bluee background and set it to the background of your screen. Look closely and you may see lines or ripples in the screen. The level of intensity of these lines or ripples gives you an indentation of how well it is running. If you don't see any good for you.

If you do just setting a custom resolution in the NVCP has been found to be the lesser quality way of doing this. This is because it is still registered as a "custom refresh" and not something native(meaning it wont work with some games). It is also better to use CRU because you can reduce the pixel clock further with it by setting your timings to LCD reduced or even doing it manually. This will reduce the "stress" or strain you are putting on the cable which will make the refresh more stable.

Another way of telling how well it is running is setting the screen to an all white background. Check the uniformity level from one side of the screen to the other. If there is a big difference then you are not doing very good and you could very well use some betting timings or a better cable. If you see no difference from one side to the other you are good to go.

Let us know how it goes in the club thread. Also any further questions you have please post them in the thread since we are getting several Qnix and Xstar based threads going on which can dilute the effective information. Having everything in one thread will help others later find it. thumb.gif

More info i am posting here to keep us all in the same space.

Thanks for moving it over here smile.gif I downloaded Nvidia Pixel Clock Patcher and CRU. Everything seems to be running fine. Ran a few games and don't see anything that looks bad. I also changed my background to full white and everything looked very uniformed. I can't see any bad pixels either, looks like I got 2 really good displays! biggrin.gif I appreciate the help and if anyone wants to know I got the non pixel perfect from Green Sum and they are extremely beautiful.

Hmm, should I sell my Crossover and get a Qnix? Really want to see the difference between 60hz and 120hz...

Hi guys,
My X-Star arrived today and its amazing!! There seems to be no dead pixels or BLB. And it can overclock just shy of 120hz.
There's one small problem that to be honest I can barely notice and doesn't make a huge difference.
On the very right of my screen to the bottom there is a patch that is a bit darker than the rest.
I'm not sure if this can be fixed or if its a pixel problem.
Thanks

Is the darker patch there only when its OCed?

Even though its not as smooth as a true 120hz tn panel in motion blur..I love playing BF3 at 120hz on my Qnix..I don't think i can ever game at 60hz or 1080p again..

Alot of them get darker on the right side when OCed.There is nothing you can do about it..Did you try a 120hz ICC profile?
