[Official] The Qnix/X-Star 1440p Monitor Club - Page 551

Yep very weird. If I dropped out of SLI it would start working again (options available). Pop SLI back on and the modes are all there. But come reboot they're gone again.

Installed the Catleap .inf and readded the resolutions in CRU and I can now select it, even after reboot.

I'll see how it goes - hopefully that has fixed it, thanks!

Actually it has been reported that the X-Star stock stub is not in fact screwed in inside the bezel-whereas QNIX is-and thus can just be pulled out (with a fair amount of force though). So this would also be the only real diff between the two yet discovered, for the record.

No problem let us know how it goes so others can hopefully read this and not have to ask again.

Had a massive scare today - I left my computer for a bit and when I came back the monitor was blank, bashing keyboard/mouse didn't work. I pressed the on/off switch under the monitor multiple times, nothing happened so I unplugged the DVI-D and pulled out power cable and put it back in - brief flash of light and then nothing eek.gif no test patterns or anything.

Turns out the comp crashed, and interestingly if the monitor is turned off using the button underneath pulling out the power cable does not reset this. I didn't realise because I'd taped over my LED, but the loose casing meant I saw a tiny bit of red light seeping through the edge biggrin.gif

So when I first got my Qnix, I messed around with OCing it slightly, but couldn't keep it stable with anything > 96hz. Today I reread the guide only intending to put it back to 96 (reinstalled OS a few weeks back), but noticed the part about LCD Reduced in CRU and reduce DVI Frequency in CCC. Tried it out and I'm looking pretty stable at 120hz. There was a little graphical glitch when I first applied it, but I tested out TF2 for about 30 minutes and had no issues thumb.gif

Next is possibly opening this bad-boy up and correcting some of my bleed in the bottom right corner.

Is it weird that I don't really notice a huge difference in games, but scrolling through forums looks silky smooth to me now?

Edit: starting to notice some lines in the top right hand corner that stand out against the white top border of Chrome. Am I damaging my monitor?

Unfortunately I have not seen any solid info as to whether overclocking these monitors actually does any damage. I would imagine that sending more data at it must make its display controller process more which would make it run hotter, as with most other electronic components. I would try setting the clocks lower to see if it disappears and also making sure the monitor has proper ventilation. Even pointing a fan at the back of it as an experiment might be worth doing.

Are there supposed to be spacers here? I removed them and put them in the corners where it seems like they should go. I was just wondering if it was just poor assembly. There were no bezels in 2 corners. This is what it looked like when I opened it up.

just opened mine to put in a new stand and spacers are on the corner

I'm starting to suspect that it may be the cable I'm using, which is the one they sent with the monitor. Could anyone link a reliable replacement ?
