All 500 series cards won't downclock when the monitor is oc'd. It's in the nv patcher notes.

Would it be worth trying the tape fix listed on the first page??

I'd like to get rid of it if iI could. I tried playing wiht the screws on the back but it only made it worse.


Take a look at page #601 of this thread. You'll find some info to help you decide.

It's on NVidia to address via updated drivers.

Edit: Oh snap...Tue 8/20's 326.80 beta might do it.

Changes and Fixed Issues in Version 326.80
The following sections list the important changes and the most common issues resolved
since version 326.41. This list is only a subset of the total number of changes made in this
driver version. The NVIDIA bug number is provided for reference.
Windows Vista/Windows 7/Windows 8/Windows 8.1 Fixed
Issues
 Some 27" 1440p monitors with Korean B grade panels are not detected. [1329305]

I'm using Nvidia drivers 320.49 for my gigabyte 760s SLI and I dont have those problems.
My Qnix is overclocked to 120Hz on auto/cvt_reduced settings.

The way I set it up was by applying the full-nvidia patch, then installing catleap drivers for my monitor, and finally creating the profile using NVidia control panel.
I had to use the second DVI port on the graphics card because a minor line would occasionally appear. Therefore, I had to reinstall the monitor driver since I changed the dvi port.
Finally, I plug in my secondary monitor and setup my desktop the way I want it, in terms of positioning and gamma.

EDIT: Don't forget to remove your GPU overclocks before you do this.

Thanks for the info. thumb.gif

Very strange.
My set-up was giving me the blank screen before I could even OC the monitor, but maybe I should just proceed with the normal/your OC procedure, which may solve the problem itself?
I think I'll do that 2nd. Rolling back 326.80 should be painless enough, if it doesn't solve the problem.

I currently have the monoprice 27" 1440 IPS

Oh yeah? I'll have to think about it then!

Just got mine today, it has a yellow tint to it that looks like I'm wearing those silly gunnar glasses. I'm not even sure if it's fixable.

Just got mine but it's only showing a blank screen. It showed the windows 8 logo for a second but nothing since.
Any ideas?

You might have GPU scaling turned off in your driver options.

This could be part of it if he has an AMD card. Nvidia has it on by default.

Try connecting it as a secondary monitor and then extending it. If it works then make it the primary display.

The 326.80 drivers (Korean panel B fix) seemed to have resolved my problem.

Great feedback. I am waiting for toasty 's patch to officially support those drivers then i am going to switch over too. Maybe even try and push the overclock a bit further. thumb.gif
