Don't bother yet, I thought I had to get a good dvi cable so I bought gold plated monster dvi cable. I never used it and returned it.

With the dvi cable that came with my monitor I managed to get 115hz overclock. I haven't tried higher but I'm pretty sure I can do 120.

Let the tiny box move across your screen for a few seconds without touching anything e.g moving cursor....then run the tool again. Also make sure to close other open tabs thumb.gif

Mouse DPI doesnt matter there is the actual DPI of the mouse and then there are in os or game tuning/tweaking variables that you can use to get the cursor to move a given amount for a certain mouse movement. I know the ESReality standard gamer that understands nothing of technology will tell you 400 DPI is the best on a logitech "I cant even remember those old model numbers anymore oh yeah mxx518?(remembered on edit to remove one line)" mouse but thats just gamers that get stuck in a rut and cant adapt to new interfaces like all of you crying about windows 8 when you dont have a choice to but to upgrade because unless you can write millions of lines of code and can upgrade compilers you cant make your own os. New code uses a new compiler and the resulting binaries are faster the kernel is ugpraded(faster more multithreaded utitlizes multicore far more efficiently(from a processing power standpoint you only think about energy because your economy is sabotaged and now your energy prices are going to increase so they tell u to think green and u need a power efficient processor to keep you thinking green and paying huge electric bill) directx gets upgraded. YOU DONT HAVE A CHOICE YOUR A SLAVE GET USED TO IT because you cant write millions of lines of code.....(ur lucky you even get to use it or that it exists stop crying).

That being said you want the highest DPI mouse lol I know this is confusing compared to that last paragraph but allow me to explain. Higher DPI doesnt just mean "mouse moves faster" and I think its ignorant to put on the fly DPI switching buttons on the mouse because then people think its just on the fly sensitivity. I never change my mouse DPI I set aliases in the game to certain weapons so they have the proper sensitivity and zoom(especially on older games). The reason you don't want to use the DPI switching on the fly is you are going to change the curves(they always change relative to DPI) of the movement of the cursor relative to mouse position(even if you remove acceleration mouse curves in the registry) the best way to game is to turn your DPI all the way to maximum and lower your sensitivity in game. In the past or on older games it becomes necessary to possibly even to have to use a decimal or fractional sensitivity aka .9 .5 when maybe if you were using a ball ps/2 mouse in the past you would set a sensitvity of 20 in quake 2 with a 6400 dpi taipan(its always better to go wired turning signal from copper to wireless through the air to wireless to copper again is more circuitry and more time because of component slowdowns than straight copper) you may have to go fractional. This will change the aiming curves even with acceleration removed and you will notice it and it will take getting used to even if your full 360 turnaround mouse movement distance is the same as it was previously with a different mouse or lower dpi setting. The benefit tho is is that you are getting more accuracy you are getting more aim precision because the same corresponding mouse movement has more "pixels" of mouse movement per "pixel" of screen movement or a finer granularity of your mouse which is good for a wrist aimer like me who moves the mouse very little distance as compared to a razer deathadder arm aimer style with a huge mousepad that moves his mouse huge distances to get finer aim tho this tactic has drawbacks and is more tailored to medium to longrange gunfighting in the game and lacks responsiveness for close range combat. Tho even if an arm aimer turned his sensitivity down even further this would benefit him as well. Also I noticed recently that Valves source engine has retailored its ingame sensitivity cvar so the values are more intune with modern mice with higher DPI so that a 2 sensitivity from 6 years ago is still a 2 with a new higher dpi mouse but inreality in the code the sensitivity is actually far lower than the older 2 value.

Hei.

Happilly received the X-Star DP2710 yesterday, but having some issues.

I am planning for a new desktop computer, but am currently on a Dell Latitude E6520 with nvidia nvs 4200m gpu and hdmi 1.3 output.
I believe the max hdmi output is 1080p, but was hoping to run the new monitor at 1080p until I get the new computer.

When I connect with hdmi through an hdmi-dvi-d adapter to the supplied dvi-d cable the monitor start giving flashes of separate bright colors; green, red etc and a black/white horizontal lines with a vertical line in the middle..

At first the laptop didn't recognise the monitor, and after updating to the newest nvidia drivers it's just recognised as dual dvi and same color flashing, and now the laptop monitor resolution drops drastically as well and won't let me raise the resolution until I unplug the X-Star..

Is this a familiar issue? Am I doing something wrong, is the monitor DOA, can it not handle 1080p, will it not work with hdmi through adapter (I tried two different adapters) or is the GPU too weak to run the monitor?


Thanks for any thoughts or suggestions biggrin.gif

These monitors don't have internal scalers, so they rely on the GPU to scale a resolution up to 1440p. Since the max HDMI output is 1080p (and there may be other limitations when using the adapter), you may be out of luck until you get a new GPU.

No matter what I do it always fails, closing all tabs, other applications, turning off my secondary monitor, nothing.

HDMI -> DVI adapters cannot handle 1440p.

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

I am currently on GTX570SLI and i am at 120hz easy now. I have a GTX660 and it does overclock better(but i stick with the 570s for performance). The new 700 series cards are like the titan and are meant to be able to overclock and have no pixel limit.

Just ordered my matte Qnix from greensum. I asked him to put the value as £35 and mark it as a gift. Its 1.30 AM in Seoul, what do you guys think the chances are it'll get dispatched today? (Their today) and how long would it take to get here? Hoping it gets here for my birthday smile.gif

Thanks for the clarification.

So turns out the marketing specifications are a bit misleading, it shouldn't say "max resolution", but "only resolution 2560 x 1440".

Oh well, just gotta speed up the process of getting a new desktop computer wink.gif
