[Official] The Qnix/X-Star 1440p Monitor Club - Page 599

post #5981 of 25922
Thanks to Spartan F8's posts, and many others, I've lowered my pixel clock from 483 Mhz down to 461.97 Mhz. (Total Pixel Count 2655 1450)

Should I bother to buy a new cable and try to get the pixel clock down to around 450?

Can more people share their experiences with changing out the stock cable, and what cable they are using?

I'm thinking about going to my local NCIX to pick up a Startech or order one off of Monoprice.

If you're not experiencing any artifacts, there's no reason to try another cable. The only reason people do it is if "reasonable" refresh rates aren't working, meaning the cable may not be able to handle how much data is flowing through it. Otherwise, digital is digital and if the signal is intact you're good to go.

Oddly, my screen also does the flashing with hardware added sound after I log in, but everything works so I never thought twice about it. Even the login screen is 120hz. I'm using Windows 8 x64. At this point I'm not really sure what else to suggest trying.

The nVidia control panel might calculate different timings than CRU which could explain the scan lines.

I think it might be the latest drivers, I'm not sure what's going on all I know is that it wasn't happening before I installed the new drivers. So I can just disable test mode and never have to worry about it again?

Hey guys, is there any way at all to use this monitor with a laptop? Thanks.

How dependable are the OC's on these monitors? Does it lower the life of the displays?

I'm contemplating going into stupid mode and buying 3 of these coming from BenQ TN panels.

I have a 120hz and 2 60hz monitors but I have 2 780s and I feel like my computer is too powerful for 1080p

Back light bleed on my new Qnix from green-sum. Seems pretty bad. Should I ask for an exchange?

This is one click up from full lowest brightness:





The one in the center-upper-left goes away a bit when i push gently on it, but the one in the center-upper-right just glares at me. frown.gif

Thanks!

So I've decided I'll get two. I'll probably get the pixel perfect models, can anyone suggest x-star or qnix?

Also, I'm a bit confused because the listing on amazon say LG IPS and one just says samsung QHD. Is there any real difference?

Also what's this thing I'm reading about with burn-in? Can't find a lot of info but apparently these panels suffer from it?

Indeed, someone did and it came out great. Was weeks and weeks ago though. Could try searching for paint-related terms like primer or sanded. Or, hell, even "paint" itself.

There is a guide in the OP under a like-titled expandable. It comes out really well

Probably the most common question here. Look in the OP under FAQ for differences --- none. Id say qnix because it sounds like the less cheap name brand of the two. Burn in sometimes happens with high OCs and is non-permanent

I think I've decided to go with dreamseller on ebay with the "perfect pixel" guarantee. Seems like most people have good luck with that.

From the research I've done in the past couple of hours, matte seems to be the preferred choice.
