Seems the higher I go, the more red it gets. When I put it back to 60hz, the line completely disappears.

I am using the supplied cable, amd drivers are up-to-date.

I guess I should reiterate that I have not tried 61hz, as that would be a pointless non noticeable overclock. I am just trying the standard clocks I have seen others achieve.

I think those lines of pixels are related to the DVI cable. Try a better connection, or better yet try a completely different cable. You should have had a cable supplied to you when you got the monitor. Are you using the one they supplied? Are you using your own? I would swap them out and see if it makes a difference.

I might order one from mono price and see what happens. I am gonna gonna return in as that would be a dumb reason when I have 0 dead pixels and minimal blb. I would be afraid of risking the chance of ending up with worse panel in terms of dead pixels and blb.

Ill post some timings later tonight after I do homework.

I wonder if opening it up and reseating the cables will help - you know what i would do?

Id sell it locally - put it up on Kijiji or whatever the equivalent is for the US (Craigslist)? Compare it against the price of an Apple Thunderbolt ($1000) and say its faster 8ms vs 12ms, clearer if its Glossy, has no input lag and sell it for $350 or so.

I sold my old Crossover LED-P for $450CDN a couple months ago with that strategy, as long as you advertise it correctly - there will be a casual who wont know about QNIX/Korean Scene and would love to get an Apple Thunderbolt like display for 1/3rd of the price.

In the meantime (or wait after youve sold it) - try your luck again, seriously youre the only person that hasnt been able to overclock to 96hz tongue.gif

I COULD return it as I bought it from ipsledmonitors.com and they claim a no questions asked 30 days return policy. I just feel its too risky, what if I got one back with dead pixels and worse blb. Is it really worth the trade off? I don't know. I will try a new cable though. Will buy one off mono price and see what happens.

Has anyone returned a defective panel to accessorieswhole and not had to pay the return shipping cost? e.g. clouding

Okay, here are some photos of what I am seeing. Note, its the exact same line no matter if its 72, 96, 120hz. The higher the frequency, the more apparent it becomes. I took this at 120hz just to make it easier for the camera to pick up.



Here are 72hz cru settings.

Have you tried another cable?Looks like a messed up monitor but worth a try..

If it were me, I would trade it in(assuming the cable isn't the issue). The whole point of these is to OC them. The odds of you getting a dead pixel are good but IMO the dead pixels are so hard to see that I would trade 1 or 2 for 96Hz. The BLB is repairable as well. If you are ok with just 60Hz, there are other nicer options with warranties out there. I would not have bought this monitor if it was $350 and only 60 Hz - I would have stuck with the Monoprice Zero-G and dealt with the eye melting brightness(btw, that monitor is on Massdrop for $350 again for 1 more day).

That looks like the screen tearing I get on mine. However, I think another cable is worth a shot, also if you have another GPU to connect it to that would tell you a lot as well.

I disagree, people are willing to pay more for no dead pixels and minimal BLB. I think that's the main thing holding people back from buying one. He could actually sell it for more if it were guaranteed, many have said they would pay $100 more just for that kind of service on these. I actually stopped OCing mine, the image retention was becoming annoying and 96Hz didn't provide a significant difference.

edit:

How is the monoprice zero-g any better? It's just a re-badged shimian and has a "5-dead pixel warranty", bad advice.
