I just noticed something else. I don't think when a window (like a browser) is maximized it fully goes away. I can see the green pixel in the grey rectangle at the absolute bottom of this page, and if I scroll up into the white background, it turns to grey.

But wait it gets even weirder! I scrolled to the absolute bottom of this page, and went back into windowed mode (above the pixel), and the pixel turned to a faint green. If I scroll up (closer to the white), the pixel gets brighter green. The more I scroll down (to the darker color), it gets more faint. I'm just scrolling up and down repeatedly right now and the green is fluctuating in brightness.

So we have ourselves a pixel that responds differently to different variables, unlike a stuck pixel that is always static and one color, or a dead pixel that is always off. I have a green pixel that appears based on how I position a window on the desktop, changes in brightness based on the color of the window, and when the window is over it (maximized or not), it looks almost like a dead pixel on white backgrounds and green on darker ones.

I've never heard of something like this before. Have you? Any possible explanation as to why this is happening and if there's a way to fix it?

This is bizarre.

Here's some solutions I can think off of the top of my head:

Massage it out
Flip windows upside down and see if same problem occurs
Plug it into a DVD player and see if it reacts to different Colours when playing a movie.

So I'm looking at a Qnix right now, but I only have a GTX460 with 786mb, will that be sufficient? I don't game alot but it would be nice to have decent framerate at decent level of detail if I do game.

no it won't be enough. You would have to get 760 and better

Well, that's dissapointing...

EDIT: I'm running now a dual monitor setup with a 1080p screen and 720p isn't that almost just as heavy as 1 1440p monitor?

Try running one game on each monitor and see how it feels smile.gif

Your video card memory is to low to play in so high resolution normally.

Here's an older anandtech review for the card, which shows that many games are certainly playable at 2560x1600: http://www.anandtech.com/show/3809/nvidias-geforce-gtx-460-the-200-king

Obviously some newer titles are missing there, but as long as you don't max out the details and can live with 30-60FPS, it will work. Just be prepared to justify buying a newer GPU when you start to realize how good games COULD look on that QNIX. smile.gif

I am happy to report that manually tweaking my timings have fixed the variance in color accuracy throughout the day!!

Basically, when you first overclock your monitor its pushing the pixel clock higher than what you really need it at. So the goal is to get the lowest pixel clock possible to maintain your 1440P @ 120HZ for maximum stability and less stress. (MUCH Less Gamma Shift, No more Uniformity issues, no more color variance throughout the day)

For reference, I managed to get my pixel clock down to 459 for 120hz

The refresh rate in nvidia control panel still says 120hz, but when i do the http://www.testufo.com/#test=frameskipping test, its only says 60hz (when qnix is the only monitor connected it says 120hz)

Any suggestions?

I use EVGA Precision X to overclock. Yesterday, it just stopped working. I overclocked to 99Hz and started up a game but it was nowhere near as smooth as it normally is. I checked Precision X and my second video card was not going to full clocks like it normally does when i change the Hz. Nvidia control panel was telling me I was at 99Hz but I know for a fact that it wasn't at 99Hz.

I uninstalled Precision X, rebooted, reinstalled it and it was fixed.
