Update on my QNIX:

So far I have not found any dead pixels. I had one initially, but it might have been dust as I cannot find it anymore. Back light bleed is minimal. I did the black screen lights off test and could see it on the top center and bottom right, but it was so minimal it doesn't bother me at all. Don't notice it during normal usage or when gaming. Is there a risk I could make it worse if I open it up to do the tape mod? It would be nice if I could eliminate it completely.

As far as overclocking, I hit 96hz no problem but I got a vertical line at 120hz when playing games so I backed it down to 96hz; again, totally fine with me. 96 is better than 60, Im not gonna get but hurt if I cant hit 120.

:doh: Do you even read? Lowering your timings in CRU/trying LCD Reduced will fix your issues. Just search for "front porch" or "timings" in this thread, and look for posts by Spartan f8

1-pixel wide vertical lines on the display means that I should increase or decrease the pixel clock via CRU?

You may not get BIOS/Windows Load if you have more than 2 displays connected to the same card - my 7970 + 2ndary Monitor + HDTV, QNIX only gets off standby once windows loads. Works fine with just QNIX + HDTV though.

I didn't even read up on what the patch set out to accomplish, I just installed it because I couldn't get my OC to list in NVCP and I had read that 500/600's needed the full patch.

Can't say that I am really all that disappointed since I already have one monitor already. Was just looking forward to using the second one this weekend. Oh well, good things come to those who wait.
As I mentioned a couple of pages back my seller (accessorieswhole) listed the same, but upon checking the tracking number at FedEx I seen that it was instead scheduled to be here within a week; and in truth it arrived in 3 days.
Check your tracking and expect it within days.
