i bught one qnix glossy couple days ago ill probably receive mine next monday or so.
i bought it from green-sum as well and at the bottom of the page is well written the monitor have 1 year warranty..your doesn't?
if you voided the warranty just go and repair it, a friend of me repaired an lg tv 42 i was about to trash, with just less than a euro..
if you have an eletronic expert near your house consider to visit him..usually the damage they have is very little or non expensive as you think.

So I got my X-Star, 1 red stuck pixel near the bottom center...
Couldn't do 120hz without glitches, but did 96hz just fine. Can't do DXVA (green screen), is that a AMD driver issue with the patcher?

Overall, very happy with the monitor. Now where's 4K for $400?

Will just get a single card cause actually I had issues for so long now with this SLI system of mine. Just get a top of the line card like MSI lightning and overclock it like mad.

Edit: My GPu is not downclocking @ 96Hz when in idle. How can I force it to downclock

I noticed this too, that if you keep the monitor at 96Hz my video card won't downclock.

Here is one solution:

Another solution is to just switch back to 60Hz when you're not gaming. That's what I do.

So what graphics card do yo guys recommend I use with one of this screens. My cards can't keep up with the games. I'm getting bad FPS in my games like 30-40FPS in newer titles.

I was thinking
780 lightning (when it comes out)
7970 Lightning BE
Wait for new AMD cards
Wait for new Nvidia Cards

I want to get the best performance out of my cards. No dual cards solution please

I'm enjoying my single 780 GTX. It's overclocked a decent bit and the temps are still fine since the cooler on this particular model is a bit better than stock. The Lightning will probably be able to squeeze a bit more performance out of the overclocks, but probably not by much. I am guessing it will retail for over $700, so you'll have to do some number crunching to see if it will be worth it at a dollar to performance ratio.

If you wait for new cards, you'll likely be waiting until 2014 so it's a matter of how quickly you want to do some higher framerate gaming.

How do you guys calibrate these displays? I recently got an i1Display Pro and after calibrating with dispcalGUI at 6500K, 2.2 gamma I got a reddish hue profile in the end. Do you guys just use the software in the box and it does an accurate job?

That's... odd. Did you let your display warm up for ~1 hour first?

My post on calibration is http://www.overclock.net/t/1397938/my-spyder4elite-monitor-calibrator-loan-thread/160 scroll down a bit and you'll see it.

See if that helps fix your reddish hue problem.

Edit: the i1 display pro (xrite photo/display iirc) should be used with "LCD Adaptive HiRes" mode, not "LCD generic".

What are some of the monitors that use these panels? I am looking for more options as far as color profiles go.
