No one knows about having different overclocks for nvidia surround?
post #5112 of 25893
Overclocks have to be the same; when you set up surround, it treats all the monitors as one display, which means you'd have to use your lowest overclock for all the monitors.

A weakest link scenario.

This was mentioned a couple times in this thread but not super clearly. This applies to the people with SLI setups who are trying to get over ~100Hz (400MHz pixel clock).

Nvidia has a pixel clock limit in their drivers. You can get around this limit by using Precision X (or other methods in this thread) if you have a single video card.

BUT for SLI setups, here's what ToastyX has to say as of June 8, 2013 about his patch:

"The patch is still needed in three cases:

1. SLI needs the full patch to work properly beyond 400 MHz pixel clock.
2. Some 500-series cards are limited to 400 MHz without the full patch. 600-series and newer cards are not limited.
3. CRU needs the regular patch to add resolutions beyond 330 MHz pixel clock. The regular patch won't break HDCP.

600-series and newer cards without SLI don't need the patch when using the NVIDIA control panel or the EVGA pixel clock feature."

A lot of us have SLI and these monitors so I thought this was worth repeating / clarifying. If you're not going to go over 100Hz, then you can just stick to Precision X (or whatever other method you use to overclock the Hz).

Maybe I'm being too impatient, but maybe people should hold off on buying from dream-seller for now... first they said they would ship 7/30, then 7/31, then 8/1 (korean time, so it's 8/2 now). It's been a good week since I ordered and still no signs of a monitor shipping?

I ordered and they shipped 30/7. Maybe you just unlucky. My shipment is coming to South Africa and is sitting at
GUANGZHOU CN. Hope it will be here soon. I'm hoping for early next week

I've currently got a Shimian QH270 that I've been using for the past year and have started looking at getting a second monitor to use in a dual configuration and figured that I'd go with one of the QNIX QX2710 after reading this thread and a few others. I noticed on the various seller pages for these on ebay that they say it wont work with a converter.

I'm running an ATI 6970 with the Shimian plugged into the the DVI-I which works fine with the cable that shipped with it despite the pages saying that it wont work. So I'm wondering if anyone knows if the monitor really wont work if I try to connect it via a converter to one of the other connectors on the 6970, such as the display port.

You'd need an active adapter to go from DP to dual link DVI, they usually go for $60+

Or, since his Shimain isn't OCed, he could just buy the DP version of the Qnix.
post #5120 of 25893
I'm thinking of just canceling my order as I feel that my package is not going to arrive safely in South Africa. It went form korea s to another city in Korea, Then from there to China, now in Germany. Where to next. I also contacted them about it and ask for replacement of the same monitor that will teake a more direct route to me. Fingers cross and hope they can sort me out. If they can't do that I will rather get a refund and spend it towards a GTX 780 lightning.
