[Official] The Qnix/X-Star 1440p Monitor Club - Page 701

post #7001 of 25888
I finally pulled the trigger yesterday night and got the Qnix PP Matte from http://www.overclockmonitor.com. I was reading about Dual Link...I am not so clear about that. Does the Monitor come already with that cable? From what I read my GTX660ti supports it. I was going to sell the 660 and use a GTX260 but now I think I better not do that, even though gaming is not the reason I bought the monitor for.
So any clarification about the cable and if I need to buy one is appreciated.

BTW, I have non idea how they do it but I ordered yesterday night and today I got a notification from UPS that the package will be delivered tomorrow! I cant wait biggrin.gif

hello guys i just received my qnix matte from amazon.co.uk from MNW GLOBAL INC. Ordered Friday and came by monday, no customs charges or delivery charges.Came with an adapter for british plugs, dvi cable, audio cable and a personal letter!! I highly recommend this seller to British people. Maybe put it on the original forum post for other fellow brits to see.

Anyways i was wondering if you guys could tell if the light bleed on my monitor is that bad, see attachments. Is it worth sending it back to get another? Because my monitor has no dead pixels. The monitor is absolutely awesome btw.

Any questions plz ask. smile.gif

Also i don't understand the colour profiles thing, can anyone explain? Do i just double click those icc files?

Check out, "Monitor Fixes, Support, Help" and you'll see "Color Calibration Profiles and How to install them" in the OP. . Tons of good info there.

I used the recommended Asus PB278Q.icc profile and think it looks great.

Well you can right-click and choose Install Profile but there is a bit more to it than that especially to ensure that Windows uses the ICC's gamma adjustment as well (otherwise you often don't see much difference). Start in the OP as said and there is a really good guide about ICC installation at TFTCentral (think linked in OP).

As for your bleed it's generally not that bad and that one spot on the bottom right may be able to be reduced by simply removing the bottom screws from that side.

Fixed that for ya. smile.gif You are the one of the very few to report such difficulties so at this point I would say it's likely not the monitor. There's hope yet!

Doh! Surprising. Really, the vast majority can do 96 at least as you likely know. Well, I still wouldn't give up totally. Next time you change major "factors in your equation" such as a new GPU or even a new Windows install I'd try it again. You never know...

Doubtful it's such but have you at least tried different Catalyst drivers? Perhaps the newest 13.10 betas?

From what I noticed getting rid of the blb, different things have worked for different people.
post #7009 of 25888
Any suggestions as to which seller to buy from? I'm in the UK if that matters. Also anyone know what import fees are going to be?
