It seems there are complaints about the tilt being too weak even when fixed. I recall someone posting about an HP replacement monitor stand but I can't find it.

So is everyone comfortable with overclocking their monitors? I am comfortable with ocing my CPU, ram, and GPU, because we have pretty good data showing that for the most part, it's reasonably safe as well as effective.

However, can we say the same about overclocking monitors? I've read different opinions on this so far (just got my QNIX Evolution II yesterday, and love it), with some saying it is dangerous for the monitor and doesn't really give you the same level of performance as say, a native 120hz monitor (if you were to OC yours to 120hz), while others say it does do so.


It seems a lot of people are doing it, but do we know much about it? "Dangerous" is relative of course, even ocing your CPU is dangerous.


Also, as an aside, anyone notice the power brick for the QNIX QX2710 can get rather hot? I know other people have mentioned this ... I'm not an expert but any concerns with OCing and the demands on the power brick as well?

I like the stand as well, except I'm worried about how easily it seems to tip backwards. The center of gravity is forward of the stand of course due to the weight of the monitor, but it still looks a little less solid in terms of the size of the back part than I'd like.

Also, just to verify, this stand is not really adjustable in any way, right? I thought I saw on an ad for the monitor that it is adjustable in terms of level of tilt, but I can't see how from looking at the stand.

Ah thanks. When I tried search I just got a bunch of HTML code for the posts. I couldn't find those stands in stock anywhere (reputable). Dang. Guess I'll have to go with the monoprice stand or something similar.

The plastic stub is screwed into an oval thing. That rotates forwards/back to give a slight option to tilt.

While the stand is definitely sub-par, as long as you leave it alone it does it's job well enough for me not to bother.

I guess I must be missing something.

So the base of the stand screws into the stem (that is connected to the monitor) with that screw. Once you have screwed in the base, you can tilt the monitor forwards or backwards without unscrewing the base or anything else? I haven't pushed it hard but it seems like it's stuck in just the one initial position and not meant to be adjusted in anyway.

It's tough but it does tilt back. I felt like mine was going to break when tilting it. Once it's set, never touch it again. smile.gif

Here's a side view:


It's an X-Star but these monitors are almost exactly the same. You can see the piece the plastic stem connects to is not flush with the monitor as I tilted it.
