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).


The flickering is only noticeable at 120hz and above. It just isn't there at 110hz. So is there anyway to fix it now that I've reduced my timings to the lowest I can go?

Speaking of which, how were you able to enter your settings in the CRU without it coming up red? I'm not talking about how does yours work at those timings, but how did the CRU allow you to use them?

Also, it's better to have a lower pixel clock right? I thought it did more than just handle color. Starting to get the hang of it but there's nothing more I can do since I have the lowest pixel clock CRU lets me use.

Wow, I just found out that full screen games completely ignore the .icc profile that you set. Meaning when you're playing full screen games your colors will be way off and you'll see the gamma shift.

This also explains why my profile wasn't sticking properly.

Anyone know any solution to this? frown.gif

I'm sticking to full screen windowed mode for now which works fine.

1. If you have it at the lowest possible timings then it still could be the polarity(which i have not seen you mention as of yet) Also if you have a second monitor connected try removing it for a while and maybe even reboot to see if it still flickering. You ay also want to make sure your drivers are patched with toastyx's patch(if they are patched it will tell you and not allow you to run the patch again). other than that i would try a few other cables and see if you can get it to stop flickering.

2. I have no idea mine did not show red and it did allow me to use them

3. Yes it is better to have a low pixel clock(this is comparable to having the highest front side bus when OC a CPU "sort of")

4. It does not directly handle color at all but by having a lowest stressed pixel clock or data rate going through the cable you reduce ALL side effects including color(so technically your statement is correct but maybe not the thought process IDK)

Yes use the drivers to set the color up yourself with this website http://www.lagom.nl/lcd-test/
You can also search "calibration" in this thread. There has been a lot of talk about this and i have some detailed posts regarding it further back a bit shouldn't be too hard to find.

Use CPKeeper for that.

He might be using an ICC profile he made himself using a colorimeter / spectrophotometer or using another user's ICC profile, in which case manual calibration is not enough, nor is calibration by eye (inaccurate).

@ColdFlo: Here's the datasheet for the EP269. You have a Qnix or an X-Star btw?

i received my qnix as well, really minor to no blb , no dp, but when i went ingame with 120hz i had a blinking green orizontal line randomly appearing on the screem..used AznCQ settings and now 120hz flawless, no side effects after gaming. what can i say, i have a s27950d as well, but im impressed by this panel, the color blow away the samsung and the rest , well, 1440p vs 1080p, 120hz....only downside thing is the aestetic side but , well...at least the stand is not as wide as the s27..
for 230 euro, grab one if you can. bought from green sum.

Ordered two 760s last night (upgrading from 6950 CF) at a cost of $550 with a Splinter Cell: Blacklist code thrown in.
With all the great looking AAAs coming out over the next 6-9 months, I wanted a nice sexy 1440 monitor to boot, but the cheapest model I found was $559 (ASUS on Amazon)...until this thread.

After blowing off a conference call and reading damn near 100 pages, this morning (Thurs) I ordered the QNIX 27" via Amazon reseller EcoMadeArena for $309 and free shipping. Should be here some time (Tues-Thurs). For non-gaming stuff, I'll have two 1080p flanking the QNIX...all three mounted on an Ergomonitor stand.

Can't wait to sneak up and stab fools in SC:B at 1440p!
Thank you everyone for all the great info!

I'll follow-up after delivery.



Dear God...it's already shipping. redface.gif

That's great man! Hope you enjoy your Qnix and those GTX 760's! I love my Qnix great quality panel, beautiful colors and such sharp clarity for the price can't beat it!thumb.gif

That's a funny ass avatar lol

I'm actually loving the New Nvidia drivers 326.51. My gtx570 can run bf3. I turn down most setting to low and some to high then i can play at 50-60FPS

I'm gonna install these drivers today, I heard they are working good with these Korean monitors. thumb.gif

I finally decided to pull the trigger on the QNIX at $269. Hopefully I'll get it in a few days!
