Please, please, PLEASE stay FAR away from dream-seller.

Hence why I was asking about customs. Two people from California said no customs fee though. What part of the West Coast do you live in?

Here's instructions that I compiled from the thread to help me (assuming you have an Nvidia GPU):

To overclock the Hz, what you are doing is adding a profile to your Nvidia drivers where you can select 96Hz from a dropdown (whereas normally it would not be possible).

Here are step-by-step instructions:

1) Download the Custom Resolution Utility (CRU) and the Nvidia Pixel Clock Patcher, both available from this link:
http://www.monitortests.com/forum/Thread-Custom-Resolution-Utility-CRU

You can save them anywhere, they don't have to be on your C: to run them.

2) Go into the pixel clock patcher folder and run nvlddmkm-patcher.exe. You only need to run the full patcher with 5xx series GPUs or earlier or if you have SLI. If you have a 6-series GPU or later or you're not running SLI you can just run the normal patcher. Then REBOOT.

3) After reboot go into the CRU folder and run CRU.
- In the dropdown at the top make sure the Qnix is selected. Qnix should be the active monitor.
- Highlight the resolution listed under "Detailed resolutions."
- Hit the "Edit" button below the box. This will pop up a new window.
- In the new window hit "Copy." Then hit "OK" to close the window.
- Hit the button "Add" under the "Detailed resolutions" box. This will pop up a new window. Hit "Paste" to populate the screen. Then go down to the area in this screen that says "Refresh rate:" and change it from whatever it is (59.5 or 60.0) to 96. Then hit "OK" to close the window.
- Move the new custom resolution that you created to the top of the list of resolutions under "Detailed resolutions."
- Make sure that "Include extension block" is unchecked.
- Hit OK and CRU will add this new "custom resolution" to your Nvidia drivers.
REBOOT.

4) Once you're rebooted, right click on your desktop (or however you want to do it) to go to NVIDIA Control Panel.
- Go to "Change resolution"
- Under PC you should see Qnix listed as 2560 x 1440 (native). It should be highlighted.
- CRU (despite the name, Custom Resolution Utility) does not add "custom resolutions" to NVIDIA Control Panel. It makes your drivers think that whatever resolutions you created are native.
- There's a dropdown next to the monitor labeled "Refresh rate:" You should be able to select 96Hz from this dropdown now.

I use 96Hz for gaming and keep it at 60Hz the rest of the time.

You can adjust the Hz to whatever you want. I use 96. You can try for 120 but you'll probably need to do some tweaking in CRU. To do those tweaks search the thread for "front porch." Spartan F8 has gone over these tweaks extensively.

I finally got it. I just made my mistake in not going into the costume setting on the Nvidia control panel side. I pushed it up to just 90Hz & im a happy camper..Thanks for your help.. +Rep for you my friend. thumb.gif

Got my XStar today. Used the EVGA pixel clock and it handled BF3 at 100hz.

Can't wait to try out the CRU and really see what it can do.

Any differences from the QNIX version at all?

Thanks!

I just bought this exact monitor from Dreamseller. I got mine and it is indeed Pixel Perfect; no dead pixels. I have no problems with back light bleed whatsoever. The LCD is in the casing correctly and there is no panel play whatsoever. I immediately overclocked it to 120hz and also had no problem. I ordered it on the 5th and recieved it today the 9th. All in all I got the best these Korean monitors have to offer. I'd buy one again when I'm in need of another. I would say go for it based on my experience. Dreamseller even sent a note thanking me for the purchase.

The X-Star and the Qnix are made by the same company. They are basically the same monitor with a different branding.

Holy crap.. this monitor is HUGE.. SO MUCH SPACE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I only got 1 dead pixel and I can only see it when its black. The bleeding isnt so bad either and barely noticable! I got an xstar from dreamseller on ebay. I can't imagine using dual monitor or even 3 on these things.. I am purchasing another one ASAP.
