Got my QNIX today after a painful week of waiting, happy to report no dead pixels
(as far as I can see), sadly theres a little bit of backlight bleed but nothing I can't handle
First thing I did was try overclocking it, but 120Hz gave me flickering lines
119 seemed to work fine (after moving the DVI cable around a bit, interference?)
This wasn't good enough for me though, so after a bit of meddling I managed to get 120Hz working stable, here's how:
- Have NVIDIA card (660Ti 3GB here)
- Use EVGA pixel clock to OC your monitor to the highest stable pixel clock/framerate you can (try and get the highest pixel clock you can)
- Check and make sure theres no skipped frames/flickering/other issues
- Use NVIDIA control panel to make a custom 120Hz resolution (the pixel clock it shows should stay the same no matter what you change it to)
- Enjoy your 120Hz-on-119Hz-or-lower-pixelclock framerate!
I'm a bit concerned that it might not be true 120Hz though, pretty sure running 120Hz on a pixel clock lower than it should be isn't a good idea... but it works \o/
Now to buy a proper DVI cable to see if that helps...
PS, I bought it from hulustar, £225 with £15 duty, not bad
Edit: hmm, seems I can't adjust the colour on here/use ICC profiles without it getting reset 2 seconds later, might be to do with the pixel clock override
anyone else here had this problem?
Edit2: dang, seems theres still flicker on black
Moving the DVI cable around definitely effects it though, I'll go down to 96 till I can find a decent cableEdited by emoose - 4/23/13 at 10:06am
