Nevermind searching escapes many people.

1. install the catleap driver
2. Use CRU to set 120hz rather than using NVCP
3. This makes the resolution a "native" resolution rather than a custom one and puts it into your EDID
4. Re-install your video drivers
5. in the NVCP go to 3D settings and there is an option called "preferred refresh rate"
6. set it to "highest available" and BAM 120hz (this option will not show up unless you used CRU for your overclock as it has to be in the EDID as native)

EDIT: this is only for games that do NOT have any refresh rate option.

Very happy with the monitor, no dead pixels, no noticeable BLB during the daytime here (I'll have to see how it holds up at night). After using ToastyX's pixel clock patcher and CRU I confirmed I'm able to use this at 2560x1440 with an old HDMI -> DVI cable (single link) that I had at home. Looking to get another one of these to run off my 7850 card with dual link DVI.

Was able to overclock it as well, but I'm not sure if there would be any tangible benefits for me keeping it at the higher refresh rate since I don't game, I just need the extra screen real estate for trading.

Any of you guys have image retention issues?

my qnix has retention issues at 120hz. it gets somewhat bad if i leave an image in the same place longer than 10 minutes.. two nights ago it took about 20 minutes for it to fade away after i switched back to 60hz.

ill try the cru to lower the pixel clock to experiment but it won't be until i update my drivers for the FFXIV retail release.

So how do I actually overclock the refresh rate on these monitors?

I have the QX2710 and CCC (AMD GPUs), but the in CCC the max I can set the refresh rate to is 60hz. Do I need additional software?

Please read the first post, it has all the information you need!

So I got my tracking number from IPSLEDMONITORS and it seems like they just have a deal with the Korean monitor guys because my order is coming from there, directly to me. Should still be here in a couple of days :-)

Where do you get these VESA base stands at? I been looking for some and I haven't got very successful and I seen some youtube videos where people got these vesa stands attached to the back of the monitor without taking off the bezel.

You can find stands in a few places .. I had checked NewEgg for example (searched for "vesa desk stand") but I didn't want to pay $40 for one.

So I actually took the stand off my old HP w2408h that died. Its a vesa mount and just took a little home-tinkering to get it to fit right.

In the OP, under "Good Replacement Monitor Stands" expendable section:

$22 OEM HP vesa desk mount with all the bells and whistles. brand new

Many of your questions can be answered there, rather than being asked about again and again in the thread.
