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?

Don't maximize your browser window on the Qnix monitor, if even the sides of the window reach the 2nd monitor, it will default to the 60HZ.

So just manually resize a good portion of the screen avoiding the edges and it should be full 120HZ. I think expanding the window full size without hitting the maximize will work too.

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

What all timings did you use to push the pixel clock down to 459Hz?

I am very glad to see this. I have been trying to get those having issues to do this for a while and so far there has not been very many people who jump on the information. Most of the Qnix overclocking problems can be fixed with doing this and another benefit of the less bloated pixel clock can be a longer life span at that overclock with having less stress. This is very heavily covered in many overclocking and downsampling threads other than this one.

For anyone doing this it would be very beneficial for others if you post your pixel clock timings. Maybe if the information is a bit more predominant here others will start reading and adjusting there settings. If this happens the very redundant questions about instability issues will theoretically reduce quite a lot.

I'm going to go through the thread and try to accomplish this. I have thus far been OCing the monitor via Precision X only, but I am ready to take the plunge into the more esoteric. Thanks for all the links. thumb.gif

Here are my settings. I tried using Spartan's settings at first but it sent my monitor straight into test mode (flashing red blue white stripes color). The only way to get out of test mode is to reset your computer.

So I basically started from my default settings, and just decreased total pixels vertical first, then horizontal until it started either going into test mode or artifact (lines and stuff). Then raised it until it was good.

If you get lines blurred artifacts, this means you are CLOSE! So just raise your values until its a clear image (this is your lowest value you are stable at).
How low can you go ? smile.gif

This is on stock DVI cable that they provided me. I will buy a new cable and see if I can get even better results.

It's not impossible, it just depends on what settings you want. If you can play newer games (BioShock Infinite, BF3, Tomb Raider, etc.) at lower/lowest settings with 30ish FPS, you will be fine.

If you want to play maxed out, you need at least a 7870 or 660ti/760.

So, I've read through the last 150 pages or so, and I've seen others ask questions like mine, but have not seen any real answers. I've been gaming on a Samsung S27A750D 120Hz panel for some time, and recently got a BenQ XL2720T to try out 120Hz + LightBoost.

I'm now looking to go higher res @ 120Hz, especially since my 780s don't really break a sweat @ 1080p.

Anyhow, I've been considering going with 3x Asus VG248QE panels in 3x1 portrait for 3240x1920 @ native 120Hz. However, these Korean panels are intriguing, and considering their better color reproduction (supposedly anyway, I've not yet seen either in person) I think as long as I were to get one that can hit 110 - 120 Hz without issues that I'd be happy, considering that I also wouldn't have any bezels in the middle of the display.

My primary concern with these Korean panels is the response time. The info on the FAQ of the OP states that these panels are no-go for twitch shooters. I know some people in this thread have gone from very fast, native 120Hz TN panels to these. So, for those of you who have experienced both first hand, how much real difference is there? I don't want color and resolution to "make up for it" if you will, I would rather, and am hoping, that it's a non-issue. This is really the only thing that still makes me pretty hesitant on buying one of these.

Is it normal for the screen to flash red and then green every time I boot up my pc?

Disclaimer: I have not experienced Lightboost ever, but this is the stuff I've learned from reading:

Simply put, the only reasons not to get a Korean PLS are a) money and b)Lightboost
Lightboost has much less motion blur, and so would be better for people who do lots of competitive FPS.

For stuff like RPG PLS would be better for immersion as the colours would be better.

Coming from a 27" TN 120hz panel, I definitely did notice more ghosting but it simply wasn't bad enough to cease using. If you're sensitive to it you will notice. It sounds like you're not willing to compromise, but for me it was a non-issue.

And saying this is no-go for twitch shooters is BS. Here's a nice little run done by myself in a CS:GO GunGame match yesterday using this monitor: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_geUDNq5TAI
