[Official] The Qnix/X-Star 1440p Monitor Club - Page 80

post #791 of 25864
So I recently noticed in the bottom right corner of my desktop I have a "Test Mode" wartermark. I read up on what it was and the only unsigned driver I could think of was the "Testmode" executable file that came with the ATI Pixel Patcher.

So I disabled Testmode, rebooted, and my AMD driver crashed (no windows Aero and I got an error when trying to open CCC) re-enabled Test mode, rebooted, and everything's fine again.

I thought the Testmode was only useful for Nvidia cards, but you can't run the ATI pixel patcher without it then? I guess so or else it breaks the drivers.

I agree. Its maxing out in Dota 2 at highest settings. However Dota isn't the most demanding game out there which is scary. How much of an effect does a second 1080p monitor have on the gpu?

Thank you. Wish people would 'abandon' the old thread and move all discussion here. So many common questions on that other thread can be answered by reading the OP here

Ok so while playing games I see horizontal red lines flickering, is that the graphics card (GTX 690) or the monitor @ 120hz problem?

monitor at 120 drop it down to 96 or 110 and see if it continues

Yeah it's due to the 120Hz but as to whether it's just the display at that refresh or also has something to do with GPU, drivers, etc as well I don't think we really know yet...? I saw a red line at 120 but only once. Spent vast majority of my time at 96 so far though.

I tried bumping up to 136hz and get an error stating that custom resolution is not supported by my display.
post #798 of 25864
I'm seeing a very fine vertical banding when I set the refresh rate to 96Hz or above. Not really noticeable in games, but definitely noticeable while browsing or especially looking at photos. It's almost a gradient/reduced color depth effect, except you see it on solid colors as well. Any ideas on how to fix this?
post #799 of 25864
How's the brightness of this monitor? I heard it's 300cd/m^2 which seems higher than normal which is great.

However I think the Korean S-IPS monitors (CrossOver, ShiMian, Yamakasi, QNIX S-IPS, TVera, etc) can read 420cd/m^2 which is absolutely superb and easily the highest I've seen on a commercial monitor.

Gonna order this very soon, any purchased their perfect pixel monitors? Also anyone have any experience with that particular seller? Sorry I've been out the game for some time when it comes to monitors. Any objections on my choice?

Thanks

Just beware that this one only got 14 days return policy
