I'm experiencing something different.
I've recently changed my wallpaper to a solid and minimalstic color(a shade of brown) and I've noticed horizontal flickering lines in the top right corner. I've figured out it's my OC since they were gone after dropping from 96 Hz back to the default 60 Hz.
Moreover, it appears that part of the screen becomes slightly darker when flickering happens(it can be described as pixels constantly shifting from bright to dark, no color change such as green or blue can be observed as others have mentioned). It's only noticeable when viewing static, solid and rather bright images/colors so it doesn't concern me that much but I'm still curious. Has anybody experienced it?

Updated driver and reapply patch and "uncheked" include extension, i think the uncheck was my error thanks

I'm having a weird freezing problem with nvidia pixel clock patcher on 326.41 beta drivers.
I applied the nvidia-pixel-clock-patcher, and overclocked the monitor to 96hz. I'm on Haswell 4770K (not overclocked right now) and have a single GTX 780 running driver 326.41 on Windows 8 Enterprise 64-bit. I've noticed a strange issue. After a while, I start getting window freezes for a split second, second or two. But the interesting thing is that the mouse isn't frozen, just the windows. After rebooting, the problem seems to go away for a bit, but always comes back (especially after waking up from sleep). I unpatched the driver and I haven't seen the problem.

Been running 120Hz nonstop. Only thing that bothers me is 1 stuck green pixel :[ (I tried all the methods for trying to fix it)

I have BLB in bottom right as well but the guide to fix it is too vague for me.

I bought 3 of these qnix from dreamseller last month and now Just received an invoice from fedex for $60 for import duties.

Any of you guys got this?

Opened it up, removed the old stand, and replaced the stand with a monitor arm from Monoprice almost immediately. Makes my 23" monitors look tiny biggrin.gif

Would you mind sharing what stand you are using? Or would anyone have any advice? I think I'm looking to buy two SINGLE monitor stands for 2 Qnixs. I'd like to avoid a dual-monitor arm.

I have read the OP, and I've looked at the HP replacement stand mentioned, and unfortunately I cant find it for sale anywhere anymore. It seemed perfectly fine for my needs, tilt, swivel, height, etc. And it was under $30.

I'm looking to only spend around $20-$30 per replacement stand.

I've found a monoprice stand here: http://www.monoprice.com/products/product.asp?c_id=108&cp_id=10828&cs_id=1082808&p_id=5970&seq=1&format=2

On one hand it says it can support 33 pounds, on the other, it says it only accepts up to 23" displays.

Anyone have any updated recommendations for cheap replacement monitor stands?

I have that exact stand, though purchased through Amazon. It's fine but with a couple caveats. You need to use two different included allen wrenches to adjust tilt sensitivity and height, but if you're not adjusting much then it's not a big deal. The other problem is that the included VESA screws were too long. In order to get a fairly tight mount I had to put some padding between the mount and the back of the monitor. Aside from those issues it's working fine, so for the price it's definitely worth considering.

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

QNIX arrived (east coast U.S.) on Monday afternoon in great condition (order it the previous Thurs afternoon). No damage to any surface or corner of the box…barely any scuffs neither. Connection was very basic as described by others. No dead pixels! I do have bleeding though from each of the bottom corners. I will work to address this once I understand the BLB solution more. So now my new set-up has the QNIX flanked by dual Asus 23 inchers.

The QNIX picture is great! I immediately DL’d five wallpapers, put them in rotation and just sat back and stared at them (through teary eyes) for about 4-5 minutes. Truly spectacular! I hope to order two more before Batman:AO and BF4 debut in October…if not, certainly as Christmas presents to myself.

My twin Gigabyte 4MB 760’s came in on Saturday, and I will work on OC’ing them before I try to OC my QNIX. I ran just one bench late last night, so here it is OOTB.



I have no idea if this is good, so I’ll join the 760 club and see how it compares.
Played some Splinter Cell: Conviction last night and it looked pretty good. As soon as I get my activation code for SC: Black List then I’ll try that out too before doing some BF3 MP as well this evening. Overall, I'm very pleased! More info to come.

Okay, thanks! What type of padding did you use between the monitor and mount?

Also, just for lulz, does anyone have any recommended dual-monitor arms that would support two 27"s? I suspect it COULD be cheaper to just buy a dual-arm than buy two single stands for $20-$30 each

If I were to get a dual arm, I'd prefer it to have a stand, not clamp to the desk. Although I'm not sure how common that is

EDIT: It's a clamp arm, but this looks pretty appealing: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0052AWGLE/ref=pd_lpo_k2_dp_sr_1?pf_rd_p=1535523722&pf_rd_s=lpo-top-stripe-1&pf_rd_t=201&pf_rd_i=B000TSAV3E&pf_rd_m=ATVPDKIKX0DER&pf_rd_r=0DK678T0QH3Q9RWM2YFQ

I'm thinking any arm that has to support two huge displays is gonna need to have a desk clamp
