[Official] The Qnix/X-Star 1440p Monitor Club - Page 709

post #7081 of 25893
Right thanks, I just hate playing anything by chance, wish I could just pay another $100 or something and have them go through a few to get a good one, especially when its coming all the way from Korea I'd be screwed if it were bad.

Is back-light bleed even noticeable? My current has 0, and my last had the tiniest amount around all edges, so I have no idea. Seems to me like the BLB people complain about with these are almost always in one corner. I game and thats about it.

Also, X-Star over QNIX, no?

You can order QNIX from amazon and ipsledmonitors.com if you like, also people are getting 3rd party warranties (squaretrade) for even more protection .

The clouding type fix was basically identical to the BLB fix. It was a form of more securing the panel in the cheap bezel and casing that it comes in. There was a before and after post in the crossover forum that was quite appealing. The first picture looked like your 120hz pic and the after pic looked as clear as your 60hz post. It may or may not help in this situation due to the clouding being a byproduct of the overclock but would be worth a try(at least to me). Also by calibrating you can make it much less apparent.

Looks like I'll have to clean the backlight array to get rid of the clouding: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8EY36MnPneM

Anyone ever done this before? It looks risky...

Watch the teardown videos on the 1st post. It shows how to get to it. It's quite involved which is why I just returned mine for a replacement - but certainly doable. Just make sure you have a couple hours to work. By the time I get my replacement it will have been 3 weeks so I'm almost wishing I tried to fix it myself first...

Just want to vouch for overclockmonitor.com. link: (http://www.overclockmonitor.com/qnix/qnix-qx2710-led-evolution-2-oc-m-pf.html)

I bought a Perfect Pixel Qnix from them, $319 with the sale. Customer service was friendly and helpful. Arrived in 2 days from Korea to Canada, well protected with bubble wrap. Their Perfect Pixel policy is 0 dead/bright pixels, and sure enough there were none on mine.

I'd recommend giving overclockmonitor.com a shot, the only downside is no Ebay protection support. Compared to ebay sellers, the price is very cheap for a guaranteed 0 dead pixel monitor.

Just saw http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iLx5nPf2lRk and I'm scared about how it'll look when I put it back together. I guess it's either this or contacting the seller for a replacement which who knows when will come back... I suppose I'll wear some gloves and do it very carefully.

It almost feels like I would need access to a clean room environment in order to do this without fear of other crap getting in-between the diffuser and LCD lol

Am I to understand that when you change any of the three boxes in the "Frequency" (red box) section that they all work together and cannot be changed individually? You can edit them individually, but when you change one number the others change with it. Therefore, I don't see where you can just change one number and not have the others affected.

Anyone know about overclocking the monitor and GPU at the same time? I read someone say it doesn't work but I don't know if theres any truth in it.

Completely separate. My CPU/GPU/Monitor are all overclocked.
