Will do - i read about people suggesting that, thanks much

EDIT: K found this

(this was only possible after the new monoprice cable before with the stock cable i was only able to get to 2652x1445)
Pixel clock@120hz..............449Mhz (thought it was 443 but i guess i saw wrong)
Pixel clock@152hz..............569Mhz
...................................................^
this is the highest i have been able to go with CRU. If you use just the nvidia control panel and use CVT reduced you are at like 500Mhz already. With just the control panel i was able to get 134Hz which is 559Mhz before things got messy. Thinking of this as a kinda limit i tried to get the pixel clock as low as possible and then try again. This got me to 142hz which was just under the pixel clock of what i got before confirming they are very relative to each other. Next after adding the monoprice cable that was better than stock i got to 152Hz at just over the original 559Mhz showing some bandwidth improvement. Now since i hate uniformity issues i have set it back to 120hz but with the newly found total pixels and overall lower pixel clock. This reduced the "strain" i guess that was on the cable for the overclock and vastly decreased negative overclocking effects(gamma shift was better, uniformity was pretty much gone, etc)

Also using this same methodology i tried downsampling the screen to see how high the pixel count could go on this monitor. I am not going to get too much into it but i was able to get 4476x2342@30hz with an overall pixel clock of 561Mhz. Please be careful when downsampling though as it can cause the monitor to go into test mode and also corrupt the start resolution. If you do get where restarting the PC does not bring the picture back connect a separate monitor and boot windows, then connect the Qnix as secondary. After that you can switch it to primary and go on as normal. If anyone sees anywhere this can be improved PLEASE jump in. I have done a lot of reading but there could always be something i missed.

Hopefully this helps some people get 120hz or at least some better results at that refresh thumb.gif

EDIT: Fixed weird space removal

I think this might only work with Nvidia cards? As im pretty sure my CRU looks different..more like

Active:................2560.................1440
Front Porch: ....48.......................1
Sync Width:......32.......................2
Back Porch: ....60.......................2
Blanking:.........140.....................5
Total:.................2700.................1445
Sync Polarity:...+........................-

To match 2595 Total - what would the Back Porch/Blanking be?

Thanks!

Yeah. There is a long post or two from him about this I am specifically thinking of with numbers and all. Has also been discussed at various other times throughout this behemoth of a thread.

Would prefer more of that type of content and less of the same regurgitated questions and answers found in the OP but so it goes...

What seller did you choose?

Dream-seller. Good feedback and the cheapest.

Hey I'm thinking about debezelling mine. I know there's a guide in the front of this thread. Do you have any pictures or tips on how to go about it and was it pretty hard thing to do ?
post #6895 of 25891
Yes check page one for the debezel guide - i took mine apart to fix BLB and its pretty easy.

Same here, nothing but good service from them. Got the glossy for 279 and no problems at all. Couple of days delay in shipping because of a typhoon but other than that it was a perfect transaction. They also updated me almost everyday about the delay and even asked if wanted to cancel.

Keeping my fingers crossed that my monitor doesn't fizzle out or something on me. . tongue.gif

i saw a QX2720 pop up on ebay today for $279

the 2710 is the one everyone has.... anyone know if the 2720 is any different?

it looks like it just has a redsigned input area on the back... and it now has VGA and DVI.
who in the heck would use VGA on this.... VGA cant even do 2560x1440 can it?


anway, just curious if anyone knew anything. Google didnt seem to have any info. Just want to make sure they didn't change the board or something to where it's locked at 60hz.
post #6898 of 25891
^ its 1920x1080 on a 27" monitor? Booo. It's also multi-input, DVI, VGA - which means it probably has a scaler, so no overclocking.

As I've said before, all the negative comments are not to say that across the board that dream-seller has bad units and service. That said, these units and method of purchase is a big enough gamble as it is and dream-sellers are cheaper/est for a reason.

Glad to hear of a couple positive ones again too...
