You do not need an adapter at all.

Take any power cord like the one you plug into your PSU or monitor and plug it directly into the power brick and it will work fine. Adapter is totally unnecessary, don't stress smile.gif

Hi guys,

About a year ago I bought a ShiMain and I wanted to add 2 more 27" monitors to match the ShiMian.

I'm looking at getting the Qnix's or X-star whatever is cheapest seem to be 320 each now on e-bay for DVI only.

I believe if I get one with the card that drives the monitors I can't OC the HZ correct? It looks like my ShiMain can't do over 60 anyways so it's not a big issue. What worries me is I will probably have to get one monitor with DP since I have a 780GTX.

Does this sound right?

Everyone that uses computers has an extra one lying around. You new posters need to realize that regulars on this thread know what they are talking about and just because it doesnt penetrate that "I'm always right" thick skull of yours doesn't mean they are just making suggestions to you that are up for debate. It's topics that have been covered over and over again and they are THE LAW and you are a fool to question them......... I hope that puts it into perspective for the thick skulls out there. Or keep putting your foot in your own mouth..... up to you...... just makes you look bad to everyone. Can't have you continuing on in the thread without even realizing your mistakes...................

Take it easy, deep breaths... All I'm trying to do is be helpful on this forum. You are correct about that standard power cable being usable, but not everyone has spare cables laying around. It might be easier for this person to get the adapter if they have a store nearby that sells these international power adapters for cheap, since a lot of local computer stores close down these days. I'm simply pointing out what could be acquired if the adapter was not included.

Hope your day gets better!

Anyone know anything about that feature on ASROCK boards the "hdmi-in" that says you can hook up a console to the motherboard and then you can switch which thing uses the monitor ie. ps3 or computer?? Reason I ask is when I build my computer I want to move my ps3 or ps4 to the computer desk and use the monitor to game on but I know the monitors with just dvi-d don't work, would this "hdmi in" feature allow me to use the x-star which would be connected via dvi-d connect with the console if it's connected to hdmi in port??

Ok someone that has had time to nail down the most important chip the EXPLORE EP269(this is why the dvi cable matters so much(signaling voltage to this chip and explains our 110hz hurdle we are seeing evidence of) good deal only took 3 months and 600 pages of posts to get this basic information down that should have been documented in the first break down and pics taken of all the boards with a hi-resolution camera, but hey I don't suppose we are all noobs or anything. LOL. Yes, even I failed to do this but I'm busy and I haven't even unbox my camera yet and don't know how to use it and I had to put my monitor back together before it was attacked with dust or I lost screws. The other chips we stil need datasheets for are the Wise View LRU4122MOL-Q Chips on the inverter board. I thought they were Wise Semiconductor and shot an email to US offices but they claim they only make OLED monitors(just assembly? actual panel? who knows........) and have nothing to do with these chips. In my searches another make designation that keeps coming up for these chips that makes similar packages and function chips is Novatek. Maybe novatek is the manufacturer. To be honest I've been busy lately and still haven't ordered copper shims to cool these(inverter chips) until I'm fully sinked I'm not gonna go above 80hz. I put a sink on EXPLORE EP269 http://www.epmi.com.tw/news.php?id=102 (manufacturer site providing 450M pixelclock limit) but we should probably get the datasheet(possible overvolt/ pencil resistors? who knows.....). Monitor functions with more snap at tighter timings all monitors should be tweaked in this way... especially LCDS.
To be honest I think with some volt modding cooling everyone should be able to get 120hz. Before I bought this monitor I threw the club spreadsheet into excel and found the 120hz achievement rate to be very acceptable at 48%(0.565217391 for QNIX owners)(112.1565217(QNIX) average clock 112.1642857(STDEV 13.70690668)(both monitors together old numbers more QNIX samples than X-Star graphy of QNIX more aggressively 120 probably because of more aggressive clocking owners 115(QNIX) vs 25(X-Star)), 73% stated no dead pixels(QNIX)),with most of the failers being hardware/tweaking inept or scared of everything types because they have no experience(which is the reason I try to hammer some men with balls out of this wussy thread(not everybody just most of you younger generation types which I have names for that you would delete cuz <<<<<<<<)). Anyway finally some real hardware progress worthy of an overclocking forum...... Volt modding could also be able to fix the gamma problem and is probably a result of either panel limitation or the fine voltage stepping is reduced at high frequency interfering with each pixels grey scale or the switch rate of the Wise View LRU4122MOL-Q Chips but we are getting closer. Someone should also finger test(run panel on without destroying or shorting your panel and touching all the electronic components in the interior to see which ones get hot then take high resolution pictures and circle the hot components. We also need a guide on this rolling pin black light bleed fix with before and after proof.

So i'm a little lost because I only went though the last 10 pages. I didn't really want to go through 570+ pages.

Are you saying that you people are now buying a controller and swapping out the ones in the monitor to drive them higher? I though the monitors don't have a controller if they are DVI only and the controller was only needed if you used the DP or HDMI, at which point you wouldn't get anything past 60HZ.

help?

My only problem messing with this stuff is the life expectancy, having to replace a $280 monitor would kinda suuuuuck.

You certainly do not have to do this, it's just speculation as to whether it's possible/helpful. If you get one of these monitors, out of the box your chances of hitting 96hz are quite good. Check out the OP for a breakdown of what refresh rates are generally achieved.

Ordered one from Green-sum on Thursday, got it today!

I noticed a little bit of burn in I have been having my monitor overclocked for about almost 3 weeks now, you can see it a little bit when you shut it down like a faint outline of the white text of the rain meter skin. I'm sure it will go away if I leave the monitor off for awhile. I was gaming for about 4 hours today room was kinda hot I left the monitor idling for a little bit. I was wondering what causes burn in?
