As you can see I'm rather Dyslexic and have a habit of missing words when I type - How do you edit posts in this forum?

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

Thanks Spartan. I tried following your timings. However this the lowest I can go. If I try decreasing back porch/blanking/total even by 1, the number turns red and I can't save the resolution:


It looks the same to me. Screen is just as dark, and that flickering problem isn't better or worse. Did I do something wrong? I'm very new to all of this.

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

Ouch! Sorry to see that. Out of curiosity, what condition was the box? Wondering if it happened at a manufacturing level or during shipment?

My posts are edited and corrected - Thanks sniggleface ;o)

There is plainly evidence of an external protrusion into the Shipping Box during shipment; however, I did not notice it upon delivery as the box was wrapped with Bubble Wrap and there is evidence of Black Soot on the surface of the Bubble Wrap..



For your info: I purchased it for $269 USD costing $282 CDN and have a $32.02 CDN Customs charge to pay.

Yup, you can clearly see that it was the shipping that damaged that. Bummer you have to go through that with your brand new monitor. We feel for you.

Wow, I hope things work out for your benefit TinyMud.

I just found out about these monitors after looking at Catleaps for soo long...I pulled the trigger last night from Green-Sum. For $269.90 I had a very hard time not ordering two haha.

The shipping may be fast but I don't know what's going on during the shipping.

My Qnix from green-sum came wrapped in plastic film. Inside the box it was wet, the cardboard holding the power brick etc. was kind of mushy from being damp, and there was condensed water inside of the plastic bags holding various things. I let everything dry out a bit before plugging everything in...

I don't see that you did anything wrong, it may be the screen need a bit more color calibration to accommodate for the overclock. The brightness is not going to be solved by timings. Timings are going to lighten the variance you might see. Calibration will be need to correct the gamma levels and contrast which in tern handle a good amount of the brightness or "pop" look. The flickering is going to be the polarity(positive and negative options in CRU) if you have a secondary monitor or is likely a hardware issue(Gfx card, cable, or the monitor itself if it is still doing it at 60hz).
