Wait, are there actual timings we can use to eliminate darkening/dimming of the display at increased refresh rates? That would be excellent if possible.

There are several good timings posts back just a few pages back. You can also find my post where i break down how to find the best timings per your monitor by searching "front porch" in this thread. And yes it does make several of the side effects of overclocking either completely disappear or at least be a lot lighter.

EDIT: Also the CRU forum thread by toastyX has a lot of good info regarding timings and what not.

I appreciate Spartan posting and replying to everyone about issues whether its old or new. Because lets be honest here, for a new owner of this monitor, sifting through 570+ pages is ridiculous and the search engine for threads is not ideal. The information is too scattered, people also won't go through other monitor's thread for information about custom timings when we are only looking for things relevant to our Qnixs', it doesn't make sense.

So imo its good that Spartan is bringing up this information again so new people can still see it and be aware of things like custom timings, uniformity, color profile variance. If he hadn't replied to me about that stuff and linked me to a bunch of threads, I would have had no idea.

There's a lot of information that isn't in the OP like custom timings, examples of timings that work well, and monitor driver. Also there is confusing wording as well, someone should run through the OP and fix it up and add in new information relevant to us.

Also the information I did find in other threads are worded so poorly. No one in those threads mentions that the goal is to push the pixel clock as low as possible, so I had no idea what the purpose of this was, except until Spartan by chance replied in this thread like 5 pages back when I was trying to look for the answer.

In any case, I'm glad the custom timings I posted has worked for most, I found that the vertical pixels need to be raised by 1 or 2, because I found the bottom of the screen was missing a few pixels (barely noticeable) bringing the total pixel clock to around 460.8. This makes it absolutely perfect, color variance so far is ACE!!! So to sum up, I was able to reduce pixel clock from 483 to 460 which has fixed the color profile variance completely. Amazing!

Although timings are dependent on multiple factors, I still believe that there are a range of timings that can be applied with confidence using just the stock cable and recent GPUs to give a predictable overclock. I know this is counter-intuitive to how CPU overclocking is done but "overclocking" a monitor is nowhere near as sensitive as overclocking a CPU. Therefore, I suggest we start a trend of posting timings that work for us at 120Hz and provide a basis for which other users to work from or use directly. I think posting our timings is the first step to getting other users more comfortable to experiment rather than making it seem like navigating in the middle of the ocean without a compass. wink.gif

Thanks a bunch Spartan F8 for replying thouroughly and with links to what seems like an endless stream of repeated questions about timings. thumb.gif Also, many thanks to AznCQ for motivating me to start tweaking around by posting his timings! biggrin.gif


These timings for work me without any artifacts/lines at 120Hz. The display still darkens when overclocking to 120Hz with respect to 60Hz though. I'm still trying to tighten the timings even more though, so I'll update the screenshot if that happens.

nVidia 326.58 beta drivers are out and seemingly working fine with these monitors. I have just installed them, patched them, and my original custom resolution was restored with no problem.

To Update my Damaged in Shipment QX2710 MATTE report:

After filing a Damage Shipment report to DHL, I`m waiting a call from a Damage Inspector to arrange an inspection at my residence.

As per Green-Sum`s request I E-Mail him several PIC`s of the Damage - Here`s one of them:

A fellow monitor died in transit frown.gif You shouldn't have to pay return shipping to green-sum on that one right?

I didn't bother to plug it in as I would imagine that there would be too much Bleed Through and Dead Pixels ;o)

I have a feeling some one in CDN Customs has a grudge against Korean Imports.
