If you cant OC past 60hz with this panel than I say yes try for another. But is it returnable just cause you cant OC past 60hz? I thought these are not guaranteed to OC over 60hz and that's the risk you take.

I would suspect there's a panel fault causing that line to have a problem, and the whole line of pixels may go funny later on even at 60Hz, so I'd try and get a replacement.

Also: try OCing to 96Hz and increasing your front porch, sync width, and/or back porch. That may help.

Have you even tried another PC/GPU? I really don't know why you would return one of these panels when it has no noticeable defects (missing the forest for the trees). But yeah go get one with horrible BLB that may or may not OC on your same setup... rolleyes.gif

Despite your sarcasm, you pretty much hit my point. I don't know if the risk is worth it. I am totally satisfied with my monitor in terms of blb and dead pixels, it just cannot overclock. And no, I don't have another computer to test it on, but frankly, I think that is not a concern considering my old monitor had no issues with the same setup.

My main point was, unless you've overclocked another QNIX on your current setup or tried to OC on another PC and experienced the same problem with the same monitor I don't think you say its the monitor with certainty. But yeah, even if you were able to determine that, I probably wouldn't risk it considering some of the bad ones I've seen on here.

Has anyone ordered from ipsledmonitors.com and had any problems with returns? Do they cover the shipping cost within the return period?

I ordered mine from them Friday after a sustained email conversation over their warranty. They insist it is 100% satisfaction guaranteed, any pixels or amount of BLB you aren't happy with. They cover the return shipping as well. It was the only way I could justify the higher cost.

Had an email this morning from the seller now finally agreeing that my screen is faulty. The qnix engineer accepts faulty pcb and they are wanting to post a replacement and for me to fit it myself. I have not been inside my screen, anyone know if this is plug and play replacement or would require soldering?

Pretty sure the youtube videos listed in the OP showed a good shot of the PCB. I doubt it's soldered. I didn't specifically look when I opened mine, but it looked like it was designed to be put together with just a screwdriver. Keeps the price down.
