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.Edited by ColdFlo - 8/20/13 at 12:25am
