Many of the cables actually allowed me to get at least picture at 148hz which seems to be about the limit of my panel. Different cables granted different levels of stability as you also pointed out. However there was a few cables that either excelled in the refresh rate(153hz was my ceiling) and some that did not perform at what appeared to be the panels PAR level(one as bad as 112hz tops, 113hz BLANK). This indicates that yes many cables do seem to have a median level of quality that will only result in different levels of stability rather than any real world effect on refresh OC ceiling(which is why your comment was still relatively sound and why i tried to be a bit nicer than i normally am wink.gif ) however some of those who get completely stuck at a low refresh or want to try to get just a bit higher can definitely use cables and timings together for their ventures benefit.

Re-seat the cable and don't worry about it unless it happens again.

Yes any PSU like plug should be fine. I have testing a LOT and size/length don't seem to have any real effect on the OC or function.

Just to confirm, when you say "limit of the panel" do you mean the limit of the PCB or the pixel control circuit board (the board that rests on top-rear of the panel) or the actual LEDs in the panel themselves?

I was not referring to any internal component specifically but the overall tested refresh that the panel seemed to be capable of. It was a generic statement measured by thorough testing(i am not always speaking technically specific).

Ah cool - Thanks for this.

Which monitor with an AH-IPS panel should i buy then? The priorities are reaction time and picture quality. My budget is 450$.
I also want to know, if i could use this monitor stand, the space between the screws is 100mm.

I am sorry for my english and I appreciate your help.

well damn, my X-Star has no problem OCing to 120hz with a monoprice 24awg cable.
Managed to hit 133hz with no noticeable graphics defects. Beyond that the test fails. Haven't tried gaming yet.

The AH-IPS was he second link i believe. If you scroll WAY down in that very bloated Ebay posting it tells you the panel type in the specifications list. That VESA stand will match up with the holes that it has and may work but it is only rated for a 24" panel. There is a very good single monitor VESA stand on monoprice that should ship to your area(assuming Europe as your post showed euros). Also here is the same stand on amazon: http://www.amazon.com/Monoprice-105970-Adjustable-Tilting-Monitor/dp/B003L11FUY/ref=sr_1_11?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1379785985&sr=1-11&keywords=monitor+vesa+stand

You only posted 2 monitor links both were crossovers. The Qnix and Xstar are exactly the same but the crossover is different.

Qnix/xstar = PLS
crossover = IPS whether it be S-IPS or AH-IPS

I am sorry I ask so much. What is beter PLS or IPS?
