Also you may want to use LCD reduced if you are not already. It is possible you just did not get a very good overclocking panel and they are only guaranteed to run at 60hz.

A way you can test if you are running at overclock speeds without frame skipping is refreshrate multitool (google it). You can also get a little app called power strip and do the horizontal line test repeatedly. When doing the test rapidly(button mashing it) if you see a more than 5 frame difference then it is not stable(like if it drops below 80hz when you are at 85hz).

EDIT: There is no just standard monitor benchmarking program that you can use to actually detect stability directly. Powerstrip is as close as you can get that i know of. If anyone knows a better way chime in.

i already checked with powerstrip and my 85Hz is fine. i haven't tried any higher. only 96 but scared to go higher now. i was thinking of going 96Hz max. if i go 96Hz my screen works untill i get into a games then everything shakes and flickers.

Actually the shaking and flickering could be the polarization for the monitor. Try setting the polarity setting in CRU to "+ +" instead of "+ -" or "- +". This sometimes can happen with multiple monitors attached and a few other reasons i forget right now. It helped me when i had a TN panel as secondary. After i got an IPS panel as a secondary monitor the double positive change was no longer needed.

Connector Type: DVI-D male to DVI-D male
Signal Type: Digital
Length: 2 Meter
Gauge: 28AWG
Pin Configuration: 24 + 1
Conductor Plating: None
Shielding level: Triple
Shielding type: EMI
1080p support: Yes
Bandwidth: Dual Link
Maximum Resolution: 2560x1600
Min Clock Freq: 21.76 Mhz
Max Clock Freq: 165 Mhz x 2
Max Thoroughput: 7.4 Gbps
Pixels per cycle 2:
Bits per Pixel 24:
DDWG Compliant: Yes
HDCP Compliant: Yes
ROHS Compliant Yes
UL Certified Yes
CL2 (In-Wall): No
VW-1: Yes
Voltage Rating: 30V
Temperature Rating: 80° C

This is a good cable other than the size could be 24AWG and the length could be 1 meter. The extra size has been reported to help in most cases but there has been reports of no benefit at all. Length will almost always give you a bit better signal since there is less distance for the data to travel thus a smaller break down period.

Alright guys time for some sleep night wink.gif

EDIT: one quick addition. I recommend getting 2 or 3 cables to try. Cables are always hit or miss for the most part since they are very much mass produced. Trying just one is like trying only once to get a bullseye on a dart board.

just bought this : http://www.ebay.com/itm/140961485035?ssPageName=STRK:MEWNX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1497.l2649 from green-sum
i dont know if it is a glossy or matte panel but it doesn't make much of a difference for me (even tho i prefer glossy)
i'll post result when it arrive wink.gif

btw can i use my samsusun s29a950d dvi cable to test a different one instead of the one on the qnix box or should i get another one?

Hey guys,

Apologies if this has already been covered, but I was wondering whether I would be able to use an adapter such as DVI-D to HDMI or DVI-D to Mini display port to connect either the X-Star or the QNIX monitor to a graphics card that does not have DVI-D output.

I have just purchased the following card:
http://www.pccasegear.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&products_id=23160

And was hoping to pick up one of these monitors in the near future.

Cheers in advance! thumb.gif

I must say one beast of a card. You should be able to handle any game except crysis3 on pretty much full gfxx or at least medium. SAve up and get one more in the future. I'm waiting for MSI lightning 780

Do you guys think changing the gpu that I have to do anyway will help with getting better overclocking results.?I'm currently running GTX570 SLi

Have a bit of question, my QNIX is on its way
Ive been trying to get a proper gold plated DVI-D cables but its so hard to get one in my country
I heard that people can get higher OC on the monitor with better cables

Im wondering would I get the same result with high quality HDMI cable?
I know DVI-D performs well , how about HDMI?

Sorry for late response. But with my 3 different Qnix I get 3 different outcomes.
With brightness to lowest settings:
  1. Has flickering
  2. Has no flickering
  3. Screen goes completely black

LOL. Any consistency here?

Cheers. Yeah will get another down the track when funds allow for it. Able to shed any light on the possibility of adapters though?
Thanks!
