Did you go for the matte or glossy panel?

Glossy panel. I know some people prefer a matte screen, but once I saw the image quality and the colors pop I really wanted to stick with glossy.

Also, I just purchased the last DP2710 Glossy Pixel Perfect from Amazon. They expect more around September 20th. Maybe you can still get them from Ebay.

Thanks, I had forgotten to try the Reduced setting and it appears that has done it! smile.gif 120hz verified, with no real noticeable loss in color/quality, and zero artifacts.
This time for real lol

How did you get to 120hz? Did you just set it to 120 in CRU and that's it?
I had to install the driver patch to get it to work with my gtx580, but that was pretty much it. I chose to go the CRU route as it is a little less hassle than using NCP imo and it works great.

Good Luck! smile.gif

Just noticed after overclocking my qnix to 96hz, youtube videos are a solid green.. Any ideas?

What do you guys clean your matte screen with? Will 70pct isopropyl alcohol be harmful to the coating at all?

I heard you have to disable a setting in flash player or something like that. Im sure you can google search "green screen when overclocked monitor" and get some relevant results. It is a common issue with OCing

That may be too potent. I would def. try to dilute it more. TBH, I just use water and a microfiber cloth.

First off I'd like to say I'm very grateful for this thread, it's an invaluable resource for milking my QNIX 2710 for all it's worth.

So I've seen some comments of people saying they run a crossfire 7850 setup (with a single bridge) just fine. Can any of those people chime in and maybe give me some advice? I completed my dual 7850 setup before finding that it is highly recommended that you have 2 bridges connected to overclock this monitor. Ive tried a few games while overclocked to 120 with partial success (Arkham City has minimal glitching/artifacts, FFXIV is worse but serviceable) but others shut down on start-up/ have extreme horizontal lines and artifacting (Bioshock Infinite/ Witcher 2)

I have the latest drivers and followed the instructions. If anyone has any advice or has had any breakthroughs on getting this to work more stable I would really appreciate it.

I read there were typhoons in China where these monitors are made and that's why the sellers got behind and I'm wondering if that's also the reason for the recent price increase. Now at roughly $320, $50 more than they once were. Narrowing the gap between them and the ~$450 29" 2560x1080p'ers. I can't make up my mind.

I'm running GTX 680 SLI, but I haven't patched my drivers.

I just went into the CRU and changed it to 96hz and everything has been great.

Yesterday I did the same and changed it to 120hz. Again everything was OK, but the screen got a little dim. What does patching the drivers do and If I don't see any artifacting am I good to go or do I need to change any other settings?

As weird as it sounds, have any of you opted to leave the bezel off?

I used electric tape on the front and inside of the aluminum panel bezel and it look amazing. I've basically left the front half of the bezel off while leaving the back one on to mount to my VESA arms. I know it may seem kinda scary to have the panels literally held together by clips, but they seem quite secure and I have the panels sitting flat on my desk with the vesa arms as support.

I don't know I'll take some pictures tomorrow and let you guys judge, but I feel like it gives it the nice sleek look of the debezled without having to go through too much trouble. I actually prefer having the back of the casing on for functionality reasons, but I may use something to cover it up so it doesn't look as weird.
