[Official] The Qnix/X-Star 1440p Monitor Club - Page 686

post #6851 of 25888
Just got my qnix evo 2710 yesterday, ordered a perfect pixel from accessories whole.
Absolutely blown away.
The build quality is a lot better than I was expecting and better than the pictures led me to believe.
No dead pixels, no backlight bleed except for an incredibly faint faint bit in lower left corner.
Panel is centered and not sagging.

At first assembly I could not screw the base into the arm well enough without finding a screwdriver, the attached wire that you use to turn it was too weak and broke off when I tried any harder.
I didn't notice that it wasn't in all the way until I realized the monitor was angled to one side.

It is huge. Way bigger than I imagined.
Have not tried ocing yet but so far seems plenty smooth for games like dota 2.

Also minecraft blew my mind at this red. So big.

edit: I read a few complaints about the dvi cable not plugging in properly due to the screws being too short, I thought mine wouldn't but it just takes a good push with a flat head screwdriver while turning it and they caught the threads. I screwed it in quite tight and I bet a lot of issues are from people not having the cable in all the way.

I've owned my Qnix for about a month now, I was running it at 60Hz just to make sure I didn't encounter any issues.

Today I tried overclocking, and it got right up to 120Hz with the included cable, no issues thumb.gif

I did not use any patches, just ran the CRU utility with "LCD - Reduced" timings for both 96Hz and 120Hz, then applied them via the Nvidia Control Panel.


(please excuse the cable management and horrible picture quality redface.gif)

Would it be safe to run a 24/7 96Hz overclock, and then use 120Hz for gaming? Or should desktop usage be 60Hz, and then 120Hz for gaming? I've read that the pixel clock at 96Hz isn't technically even "out of spec".

Does the displayport model overclock to 96Hz - 120Hz?

nope, sadly not.

post #6857 of 25888
I got my second QNIX today and thought I'd try out the displayport with my adapter and the adapter essentially caps it off at 60Hz. I literally can't see the other resolutions (96Hz, 100Hz, 120Hz) that I added via CRU. If I disconnect it from the adapter and connect it directly to the dvi port then the resolutions show up just fine and it goes right to 120Hz.

I guess I'll just run the third monitor when it comes in @ 60Hz on via the adapter until I upgrade and get 2 new cards for SLI. That would be an issue if I were gaming though.

I wonder if nvidia is even going to continue with 9xx after the 8xx series starts to roll out. Maybe they'll jump straight to Titan and continue from there?...

Tempted to bite the bullet and purchase one of the X-stars from dreamseller. However, I see a lot of people having different issues, is it worth the headache?
post #6859 of 25888
I bought mine from him and because of the wait he sent me a PP monitor and it looks good, but it did take some time.

I emailed him the other day telling him I wanted to get another one and he said he's probably not going to ship anything for a couple weeks or more so keep that in mind if you're going to order from him.

I placed an order for my second monitor (couldn't stand my 1080p Samsung after I got my X-Star) from a different seller. Forget his name, but people in this thread recommended him so I hope he send it out soon.

I've been running it 24/7 at 120Hz with no issues at all. thumb.gif

No image retention or anything!! love this monitor!!
