Thanks for the heads up! I got a notification that there was a new driver available but didn't want to update if it would still be unable to detect the monitor.

Is there a difference between glossy and tempered glass? Couldn't find it on the first post.

Good to know. Thanks for the tip!

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.


Further update.

I can't boot at 120hz. Blank screen. Precision X can OC it to 120hz but I just can't boot with it. Booting at 96hz is fine though. For some reason, safe mode with low resolution doesn't work. Does anyone have the same problem? Any suggestions?

Eh, I don't really like the method of overclocking through the Nvidia control panel...I'd suggest using this method, maybe it will fix it?

Use this video guide on how to OC and use this to remove the testmode watermark.

TL;DR of video

> - Patch drivers with Pixel Patcher
> - reboot
> - Enable Test Mode
> - reboot
> - Use CRU to create new resolution/Hz entries
> - reboot
> - Select your desired refresh rate
> - reboot
> - Use above program to remove the watermark
> - reboot
> - Enjoy

If I'm you i would stay on 96hz. Rather safe than sorry. I'm going to do 96hz max as I don't want to brn my screen or cause it to fail 1 year later etc etc

I use CRU with nvidia control panel settings together that is what works best for me. I use precision to unlock the resolutions then copy the settings over from Nvidia Control panel to CRU everything exact for each settings number by number.

I found that windows like when I do this and games also will detect the resolution this way that would otherwise not see the resolution. And with doing it this way it will all work fine without test mode.

Put the 96hz resolution at the top of the list on CRU.
