[Official] The Qnix/X-Star 1440p Monitor Club - Page 605

post #6041 of 25893
Howdy all, I hope to be joining the club in late October/early November when the company I work for offers a buy-back program so I can buy up to $1500 of computer stuff and they reimburse me and then take it out of my check for the next year or so. biggrin.gif

Just a couple questions in my preparation though; these power bricks with the monitors (such as this one which I plan to get) just have the standard computer power cords that can plug into it instead of using an adapter that plugs in to the wall, correct?

And also, is overclocking with the method in the OP the best/only way to do it? I see a lot of talk about settings that sound similar to some settings in CCC. And would the .icm files be something I use in CCC or in the Windows settings?

Thanks all, and hope to be joining sooner than later!

Really that's crazy! It's gotta be these sellers or carriers, but hey gotta look on the bright side at least it's no more than $21 dollars.

The plastic bezzle is what holds it all together. Without that, you would need to modify the components as stated in the OP to hold it all together again

Search "front porch" in this thread. There is one post in particular that has timings listed that i go into quite a bit of depth on how to do it(please do not just try my timings i have only found one other person that can run the same timings). Also the CRU thread with ToastyX has a lot of useful info on how to accomplish this.

Yes it can unless you can keep the FPS at a multiple of your refresh. For example i run shadowrun with no Vsync but i set a config FPS limit to 240fps. This reduces the actual input lag of your input(mouse keyboard) and does make the picture seem to be a bit smoother(even if it is an illusion). I have been doing this for a while now and before i would run 60hz at 120fps. You do have to maintain that fps though to get any benefit because any jumps will result in tearing and throwing off your input. This is also greatly improved by the "presented frames in advance setting", setting pointer acceleration or precession off, and setting the mouse pointer speed to 6 or native(in relation to the DPI).

So how ugly/noticeable is the bezel in person? I have to say from the pictures, the debezled one looks a billion times better (plastic glossy bezel looks gaudy and cheap), but I don't really plan on doing it as I lack the resources and experience in doing such a thing.

I plan on mounting the monitors on VESA compatible arms. I know I have to open up the bezel just to remove the stem though, hope it's not too daunting.

Might be a Fedex thing? Green-sum shipped mine UPS. Not sure how it was shipped for AznCQ. I know when I ship outside the US, Fedex charges a flat customs fee to the buyer. UPS does too but they may waive the fee for US customers or for UPS Global Express Saver, which is how mine was sent. You could always ask Fedex and find out what's up. I buy so much crap overseas(hundreds of items) and have yet to pay any fees. Still never got a package international from Fedex though.

Very excited to get my Qnix today (Ordered from Green-Sum). Only found 1 dead pixel so far. However I wasn't sure whether it was my phone or not, but when I tested for back light bleeding it seemed very minimal looking through my eyes. Although my phone showed this after taking a picture. Trust my eyes or my phone? Also would this be considered severe back light bleeding? Thanks :]

Edit: Added in a few more pictures.

I just got my QX2710 from greesum on ebay... i bought the basic $289 dollar matte finish... i had ZERO dead pixels and ZERO bleeding. Fantastic!

*****the rest of this post is just jibber jabber about FPS stuff for those that care*****

I used the toastyX method and was able to reach 110hz on the included cable.
I didn't bother going for 120hz, b/c others have noted t he included cable is rubbish past 110hz.

I ordered a monoprice 24agw cable. I could have tried 120hz, but i was too anxious to get into some games.

I must note... that i followed the toastyx methods for the patcher and using CRU, with the catleap 120hz driver.... but the refresh rates were not showing up in my nvidia control panel/windows screen resolution screens.
However, after patching, i was able to enter in NVIDIA control panel a 'custom resolution' and first went 2560x1440 90hz, then up to 110hz.

after creating those and applying, i tested with a refresh rate tester, no issues.
then also using 'adaptive vsync' (maxes your FPS to whatever your refresh is) in nvidia panel and turning game settings to lowest... i was indeed pulling those refresh rates. no issues.
I will test 120hz once i get the upgraded cable.

I tested on my old rig, i7 920/ GTX580 supercooled superclocked... in bioshock ultimate, i was able to pull a solid 60fps on Very High at 2560x1440. (ultra seemed to sag down to 45ish)
LOOKED AMAZINGGGGGG. then i set it to low just to crank out 110fps with adaptive vsync... no problem.

Currently building a new rig with crossfire 7950 xfx black editions... (they were under $200 with v.me promo code and mail in rebate this week on newegg... i couldnt resist!)
