Again let me repeat myself (along with the OP). PIXEL PERFECT DOESN'T MEAN JACK... The sellers pixel policy is what you really wan't to look for if you are worried about returning a monitor if it comes with a few dead pixels.

GREENSUM'S "PIXEL PERFECT" MONITORS ALLOW UP TO 6 DEAD PIXELS!!!

If you scroll down in that listing you have linked you see that this is shown very clearly. My monitor was not labeled "pixel perfect" and yet the seller (accessorieswhole) only allowed up to 3 dead pixels and some do even less (and it was in fact pixel perfect). Even so my monitor was $280 when purchased a few weeks ago while all the "pixel perfect" ones were $50+ more.

It's a marketing gimmick and pretty much the definition of false advertisement.

Thats a very usefull info
I realize greensum sells a perfect pixel one but the policy still states that it allows 6 dead pixels as you said, while accessorieswhole guarantee there are no dead pixel on the perfect pixel option
very interesting warranty unless greensum put wrong information on the perfect pixel option

How serious of an issue is image retention at 96Hz?

Is the guide in the OP the best way to overclock? Does it keep the "Test Mode" text on your screen(s)? Does it stick with restarts?

Hello everybody,

After all sorry for my english.

I ordered a Qnix 2710 PLS, I received it 5 days after order. Shipped over DHL. Super fast shipping !

I have no dead-pixels but I have a little Black Light Bleeding on top middle. But I only see it if screen is black. So I'm very happy with this screen !


I want to overclock it to 100Hz because I want to try my FPS games with this refresh rate.

But actually I have an issue.

I have a GTX 560 and last drivers 320.49.

I followed the tutorial to overclock but after running NVIDIA Pixel Clock Pather 1.2, I can't change the refresh rate to more than 60Hz. I tried on Windows 7 settings and Nividia Control Panel.

Is this not compatible with my drivers ?

I tried Custom Resolution Utility 1.0 but there seems to be nothing.

Can you help me ?

Thank you very much !

I already have one monitor but i'm deciding on buying 2 more, what's holding me back is if they will work together in nvidia control panel. What I mean is the one I currently own oc to 120Hz now if I enable surround when I get the other 2 how will the refresh rate work? For 120Hz triple display resolution obviously they all have to be at 120Hz but what if some can only do 96Hz can I still run one at a higher refresh rate than the rest with nvidia surround?

I am not an expert on methods of overclocking and maybe some one else can help with that. But a gtx 560 most likely wont be able to hit 100 fps in most modern games. What games are you going to be playing?

Yes sur, I'm playing Battlefield2 (2005...) I have 99FPS constantly.

But the monitor is limited to 60 (60Hz) this is why I want to overclock monitor to 100Hz.

Maybe my reasoning is false ?

  1. Depends on the luck of the draw. For the most part 96hz seems to be able to perform solidly on the majority of these monitors with no issues.
  2. As far as I know, that's why nothing else is listed there for the time being. The OP is pretty good about updating information as it comes along.
  3. I still have the test mode text and wouldn't mind getting rid of it. Even so it hasn't bothered me enough to worry about looking into it.
  4. Yes. I have never had a issue. It always boots into my 96hz profile along with the color profile I have set for it.

1. Image retention at 96hx should obviously not be as bad as 120hz however this is going to be varied depending on cable and OC method.

2. There is overclocking methods ALL over this thread. CRU with manual timings(trial and error) seems to be the best. Start with LCD reduced timings and then work your way around.

3. TET MODE IS NO LONGER REQUIRED WITH THE NEWEST PATCH FROM TOASTYX!!! THANK YOU TOASTYX
http://www.overclock.net/t/1414688/to-everyone-who-ocs-their-monitor-test-mode-is-no-longer-required-new-patch-by-toastyx-is-out

4. I don't think there is ANY overclocking methods i have seen where it does not stick. If you use CRU it will definitely stick as it will be a native resolution. Color profiles as well since color management is a stock startup service in the windows registry at all times(only turned off manually or by setting to windows classic or "windows 98 mode")

You should be able to test higher refresh rates after patching your driver by running the nVidia Control Panel, going to the Change Resolution section, and clicking the "Customize..." button. From there you can create custom resolutions and test them out. This is the quickest way to find your maximum monitor overclock.

However, when using this method, these resolutions typically do not work while gaming. Once you find your optimal refresh rate, run the Custom Resolution Utility to create the resolution (make sure the correct monitor is selected in the dropdown!) and uncheck "Include extension block". After rebooting, that resolution should be selectable in the nVidia Control Panel.

Well. Her insurance is giving me the runaround. Geico is going to handle replacing my car for me, and go after her insurance. Their response "We're the largest auto insurance company in the country. Don't you worry, they won't give us the runaround"

This was after me trying to deal with them all day. Legally, they have 30 days to find liability, and after talking to the Florida Insurance Commission, this company will go until the last second before they issue a payout. Geico will have an adjuster here tomorrow, and I should be paid out next week. My payout will be minus the $500 deductable, which they will reclaim as well, and reimburse me.

So, I may be back in the market for one of these. I'm going to go through ipsledmonitors.com just for piece of mind when it comes to returns. 30 day no questions asked guarantee, and no restocking fees. That's worth a premium, for me. That, and they're in the US.
In progress.
