Uh the buttons near the power one? I say "uh" cause not sure how you can't know that already unless yours are busted. The LED should flash when they are activated.

It could be that he didn't notice that the order of the buttons is reversed compared to traditional western up/down ordering. The up button for each adjustment is on the left.

New nVidia drivers (326.41) but still not fixed for the blank display issue on these panels. A moderator of the Geforce forums did mention that this issue would be fixed in the WHQL drivers that are due out in early August.

Here is a list of some bugs which are either fixed or targeted for our WHQL driver release in early August:

No display on some monitors with Korean panels - Fixed in WHQL driver

An update on OCíng my Qnix. Had it for 1 week plus now. Max OC out of the box last week was 96hz using just Nvidia Control Panel. Any higher was a no go.

After further lurking around here, I tried the driver patch recommended. It was a doozy. Rebooted into a black screen with the blue led on indicator blinking. Which I take, is the monitor going to sleep. I had no way of waking the thing up. Resorted to Windows 8 safe boot to wipe nvidia driver and reinstall. Spent a good hour doing all that.

Tonight after further lurking, tried the Precision X. Worked like a charm. Dragged slider to 120hz > apply. Simple as that. No fuss.

Honestly though I can't tell the difference between 96hz or 120hz. I thought I noticed more BLB but when I moved my head the BLB goes with me, so I chalk that up to matte screen viewing angles.

P.s. just want to add that I inverted all of Windows 8 into black as well as browse with Userstyles global dark always. I highly recommend not staring at a white light all the time to everyone.

Oh i tried it but I didn't notice any change in brightness although the LED flashed. I'll try again.

EDIT: Oh I see the brightness change is a lot more subtle than other monitors so I just have to hold it longer.

Oh lol I had the same prob as you at first and should have remembered. Yeah you can hold it down too for a quicker change. Hard to see a diff even after 5 single clicks in either direction.

Would you mind writing up some steps/methods to OC for those with nvidia cards? Seems like there isn't just one way, but software will do it for you without having to use patches, restarts, or test modes

I just got my X-Star from dreamseller. Glossy. 2 dead/stuck pixels bottom right corder right near edge. I didn't see them for the first couple hours till I put screen to white and got real close. (I don't know why people make such a big fuss about 1 or 2 dead pixels you can't see them after 10-12 inches anyway. Very miminal light bleed. If I didn't read this forum thread I wouldn't have even noticed it. I have to stand back with lights off and even then it's not just a faint glow at corners. Overall very happy with monitor so far. 3 days shipped. Btw does any have the direct download link to the Asus PB278Q v3.icc I don't see v3 at tftcentral.

Here is a pic

I had 1 stuck pixel but after a while it unstuck. There are images on the web to help unstick pixels, look for those.
