[Official] The Qnix/X-Star 1440p Monitor Club - Page 700

post #6991 of 25922
Hi there, new to the forums, but lurked this thread for a while. My Qnix QX2710 just came in, and I'm up an running.. but one problem.
It seems that the angle of the monitor is quite drastic. I see a lot of people say that it's only 2-5 degrees, but this feels like nearly 20-25 range.

Does the stand allow for me to tilt this back so it's nearly 90 (since it feels like it might crack), or do I just have to get an aftermarket LCD stand to mount it to?

Sorry, specifically I mean I don't think they ask for a serial until it's time to file a claim. Am I wrong? They haven't asked for one on my brother's expensive Bose headphones is why I made this assumption.

Thanks.

Yes you can tilt it forward or back, the stand is just really tight by default.

So I can tilt the mechanism that's on the bottom, the piece before the flat stand, it will just feel like I'm about to snap it? And by tight by default, you mean to the point where it actually feels like it's 100% solid?

No, they ASK you to "Finalize your warranty" via email after you buy it. Like I said, I'm pretty sure you can stall in giving them the serial number or linking / sending in a receipt (assuming it's non-ebay, ebay purchases don't need receipts). But they DO ask.

I had to push really hard to get my monitor to tilt.

Watch this video to see more about where / how it tilts:

Okay, I think I am gonna completely give up on overclocking this qnix. I tried 72hz and cant do that without a line.

It is one single row of vertical pixels which are problematic. At 60hz they are not there, but 72 it is faint, at 96 it is obvious, at 120 it is very obvious. The higher the frequency, the more red they turn.

Still using the system in my sig, except with a 6850 instead of IGP. tongue.gif

I think that you might not be able to play your games at the highest available graphical settings using a 1440p monitor. It would be a good idea to get a more powerful GPU. You do not need a GTX 780 or Radeon 7970 for the games you intend to play. The price for a 7950 is very reasonable now. I have one inside my gaming rig. I do, however, fully intend to replace it with a Nvidia flagship due to fan noise and poor driver support for Linux kernel OSs. I would avoid Crossfire and SLI unless you intend to have a multi-monitor setup.

Hey guys,

Just wondering if you guys have used the ASUS PB278Q color profile on the QNIX?? It's freaking amazing!

Just hope somebody would make a similar one for 120hz at full brightness.

I think i tried every profile on the front page - i *may* have ended up with that one. I used my calibrated Panasonic and Overlord Tempest to tweak by eye - but i also had to up the Brightness in CCC by 12, Contrast by 5, and warm up the Temperature to 6300k and the OSD brightness to 15 clicks from the bottom.

I'm happy with it now. (This is at 120hz w/ @459Mhz pixel clock - default LCD Reduced is even darker)
