[Official] The Qnix/X-Star 1440p Monitor Club - Page 496

post #4951 of 25899
I just got my QX2710 from green-sum. No backlight bleed, no dead pixels (as far as I can tell, haven't searched them out too carefully -- I bought a pixel-perfect matte monitor). I'm at 96Hz with no visual degradations or banding etc. I am using a 24 AWG dual-link DVI-D from Monoprice.

Can't wait to play around with this more and tweak, but right out of the box things look fantastic. All I've done so far was turn the brightness way down, it was searing my retinas.

I have Nvidia video cards and I'm using the EVGA Precision X Hz overclocking method. I've never used EVGA Precision X and the installer asked me if I wanted to install "Rivatuner Statistics Server." I said no.

Once Precision X is installed:

1) Open program
2) Click on the gears in the upper right
3) On the General tab, under "pixel clock control properties" hit Configure (Accept all the legal stuff if it's your first time)
4) Select the monitor you want to overclock (if you have multiple monitors) and move the slider up to the desired Hz
5) Hit Apply, then confirm your selection
6) Close Precision X

I don't have Precision X starting with Windows and upon reboot the monitor was still running at 96Hz (according to Nvidia Control Panel).

Pics / club membership / trying 120Hz etc. to follow.

Edit:
I'm noticing that in GPU-Z, neither of my video cards is downclocking anymore if I run my Qnix at 96Hz, even when just chilling at idle on my desktop. If I put both monitors back at 60Hz, then my second card does downclock to 50Mhz.

Edit 2:
For everyone saying they can't get their QNIX to tilt: I was having a hard time with it too so I just starting cranking on it pretty hard (hoping that it really could tilt), and it actually does tilt with a pretty good range of motion.

On my new Qnix, was thinking a cluster of stuck pixels but not sure. Anyone?

Measures about 10px x 10 px

Just an FYI: the statistics server is required to display the current game (or general Direct3D) frame rate using its hardware monitor feature, as well as tweak some other things on a per-app basis. It's pretty handy to run on a secondary display when comparing overclocks or in-game settings.

Without it installed you can still use the other hardware monitors supported by Precision.

Crack open the case to fix it. This should be a sticky or in the FAQ. That 'yellow' bleed is from excessive pressure on the display from somewhere inside the case. I posted an example of a fix a while back and it worked like a wonder. I have played further around a bit more since then and managed to remove almost all the backlight bleed. I can't even notice it anymore :thumb.

Mine was being completely crushed by the whole metal frame that you couldn't get off, so I unclipped the bottom portion and the sides. I wedged paper towels into the bottom of the monitor to keep it from sliding down and taped the frame down while exerting some pressure. That seemed to get rid of 80% of the bleeding. 95% of the bleeding.

My advice to anyone would be to open up the case if you have any issues of backlight bleeding. You'll eventually find the problem through trial and error and it will make a HUGE difference

Went from this:

This last picture exaggerates the BLB a bit due to the camera and distance

That's an odd discoloration...

I would definitely try to exchange it.

I just received mine today from Amazon via MiseMet! No stuck pixels as far as I can see but some backlight bleeding on the bottom right. oh well if it DOES bother me I'll try to fix it but I'm hesitant to do that since I've never done that to a monitor before. 1440p is amazing! I'm kind of too lazy to verify and add myself to the form though.

If you haven't got it yet just buy the DP version of the X-Star/Qnix - it'll be cheaper and I doubt a laptop GPU would push 120Hz - or try to spend the $100 on a better laptop (if you haven't got that yet) with a DVI-D dual-link out (not sure if you even get those).

The laptop has a 680m, which is basically a downclocked gtx 670. It'll have no problem with 120hz. I'm trying to find one of these with a DP. The only 1440p monitors I've found with a DP are like $700+

They have the Qnix and Xstar with D port on Ebay also..You just gotta look for them.There is a member here who bought one.But don't expect them to OC really at all..

Since it looks like I'm probably keeping my desktop anyway, DP isn't much of an issue. The guy who was supposed to buy my desktop was a no show, and I doubt I'll have the money for the laptop before it sells. I guess I'd like to grab one with DP just for future proofing, though. Never know what I'll get in the future.

Does the presence of the DP make it not OC well, or does it just not OC as well through DP as it does through DVI?

Any of these Korean Monitors with multiple inputs don't OC as well as the single input D link DVI ones..
