[Official] The Qnix/X-Star 1440p Monitor Club - Page 785

post #7841 of 25893
So I got my monitor and I couldn't be more dissapointed..... Has a pretty decent sized (2 atleast) dead pixels on the right hand side. Black light bleed is pretty obnoxious in a black screen. Oc's only to 96khz I get lines at 120. Honestly you get what you pay for and I should have known better.

Way to fill me with dread bro.

You disappointed overall by the display quality or the issues you are facing with the 2 dead pixels and blb?

You can fix BLB, by straightening out frame and/or evening out the pressure on it by placing pieces of paper. And if you get lines at 120hz (and not straight up blinking on/off) that means you can improve it with tighter timings.

Dig around, you can still get a decent picture with a bit of work.

Where do I adjust timings in the CRU? And where do I put pieces of paper? under the metal bezel inside the monitor case? The pictures in the tape mod part of the front page are pretty terrible they don't show me anything.


Hmm and now I don't even seem to have an option for crossfirex in the amd control center.

Okay so I had some nerd rage on first getting this but i'm trying to calm down a bit....

Xfire is back after reinstalling drivers, repatched drivers. set to 110hz seems to be fine picture looks okay.

110hz confirmed by the website in the OP.

The dead pixels really aren't very noticeable at all from about a three foot sitting distance.

Alright coming back down from anger here.... Now I just need to fix the black light bleed, any better tutorials on how to do that ?

I'm also trying to do this, would help if someone who has done it could chime in. The videos in the OP aren't terribly clear.

Just got my Qnix today, from ebay seller bigclothcraft. Bought a Perfect Pixel monitor, and that's exactly what I got so lottery or not, I feel justified at spending the extra bucks biggrin.gif

Also backlight bleed is pretty minimal, no worse than my old Samsung TN monitor!

Overclocked straight to 120Hz but didn't like the darker colours so I dialled it back to 110Hz and used one of the 110Hz ICC profiles in the OP and now everything is butter smooth and the right colour!

I've been wanting a 2560x1440 screen for a while now but they are twice the price of this monitor where I live, so I'm really glad I took the gamble and ordered this one, and the fact that it oc's nicely is an added bonus thumb.gif

Expecting my monitor here from UPS any minute gonna see how high I can oc hoping for 96 atleast, probably won't use 120 constantly as I hear it screws the colors pretty good.
I have been using 96Hz for the most part lately but I tried 120hz and the computer goes into constant freezing like stops and goes. I did not have that before I got my tri sli setup with 660ti so I am trying to find some timings that work with SLI to do it again then calibrate at 120hz to send post the files.
