[Official] The Qnix/X-Star 1440p Monitor Club - Page 745

post #7441 of 25893
well I got my x-star today zero pixels but theres some blb on top but very little. I was scared that some people where getting a charge from fedex but I didn't.
ive been asking for about a week now and no one knew, I was asking about an amd apu (5800k) would work on a 1440p monitor. the answer is yes!!!

my monitor is set to 2560x1440 60hz. works good. I even played bf2 demo but the video options didn't have 1440? not sure if its my apu or the game.
I also bought a asus gtx 760 thinking the apu wouldn't work with the monitor, ill guess I plug it in when it arrives and see if I can get bf2 demo to 1440.
the problem with 2650x1440 everything is so tiny ( text, icons ect) how do I fix this problem?

next I have to learn how to dim this monitor its pretty bright.
any help would be appreciated

Orange = Off
Blinking Blue = Standby (waiting for signal)
Sold Blue = image shown

Cool so its ok to leave it on orange? I have been unplugging it from the power brick otherwise.

Which text, icons? On windows or on your internet browser?

Go in to your personalizations and change the sizing of everything, it keeps the same resolution.

and on your browser, if uding firefox just hold CONTROl (Ctrl) and scroll in or out to zoom.

On a browser note, does anyone else find it incredibly annoying viewing youtube and google on thier 1440p monitor? Both alignment miles to the left on my screen now, its well annoying.

While I can't test your situation since I'm not near my rig, but I use scripts (tampermonkey) that change youtube's layout and it all centres perfectly.
post #7446 of 25893
whats a script?
post #7447 of 25893
ie on the top right corner I changed it to 150% and its still a little small? I guess I can try 200%
I fixed the icons now I can see them, how do I dim this monitor down its to bright ?? nvm I see there are no # when you change the brightness just hold the button.

I *think* they're javascript or something. If using Chrome you install Tampermonkey, if using Firefox you install Greasemonkey. They run on certain websites (you can edit these) to reorganise the page, automate some tasks, or add functionality (e.g. a download button on youtube).

I use:
http://userscripts.org/scripts/show/101753
http://userscripts.org/scripts/show/65477

I highly recommend both.

Got a picture of my monitors BLB in dark room:



Is my BLB considered bad? when Im using he monitor the picture looks great, cant see any uneven colours or anything, its only if I do an actual backlight bleed test do I notice the backlight bleed lol
post #7450 of 25893
Yes does not look bad and if you don't notice during normal use then you're golden man. Mine was bad enough on the bottom to notice in darker scenes in game and such. Fortunately was on bottom and removing the screws alleviated pretty much enough that now I don't really see unless I look for it. I did have bezel open for stand removal but taking off the frame seemed just too delicate to do just yet.
