The vesa mount and arm seem to be hanging. The supposed weight this is supposed to support is 15 kg and this should be way under, but i am currently living in fear of it just falling over. Here's a few pics, don't mind the mess currently setting it all up so yeah, am i worrying stupidly or is this not how it's meant to be!!!! PLEASE HELP!!!! Thanks!!














It doesn't look like it's standing straight, is that normal for this mount? I'd like to know as well. Mine (VideoSecu wall mount) says it can take up to 20KG (44lbs) [http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B003O1UYHG]. I'm gonna post some pictures of it along with the proof of ownership of my QX2710 soon.

That's what i'm trying to remember , i think the arm might have been a bit tilted before placing the monitor, i would just take it all apart and do it again, but this mount is balls and it's a 2 person job and my girlfriend is getting a bit ****ty with me calling her in to support the monitor "just in case" lol.

Is your monitor arm tilted at all??
I'm back baby!!!

Yeah, i am more than a little concerned. I Would really like it as well, if only i felt comfortable with it supporting the weight. I would hate to see something that does actually weigh the supposed maximum weight this stand supports (15kg.)

Looking forward to seeing how yours turns out.


Few more pics , still messy soz, if anyone can let me know if i should take it off cos it's dangerous that would be great thinking.gif

Right, Just got paid and its time to order this sucker...

But the question is should I get the Glossy or the Matt Version of the X-Star..... Grrrrr choices...

Another thing is that should I take out eBays insurance for an additionally £35.00 meaning Its covered for 3 years and even if I drop the screen in an accidental rage they will repair or refund wink.gif Choices.... Any input appreciated .

Not much info is said about overclocking panel to 120Hz besides bringing the pixel clock down. Did i do it right?

I had mine first set to the common 96Hz but waited it out for a thicker cable before jumping to 120Hz.


With regards to the color profile, I've tested many and when i had my display on 96Hz i found shaolin95's color profile best!

Evens now with 120Hz set, i yet again found his 120Hz color profile best thumb.gif

My testing was looking at various still images, and pausing HD video's at different scenes ( check background, colors, darkness, does it appear better? Worst? Ask yourself that when looking for a Great color profile )

all this while browsing through different color profiles on the fly with the "Display Profile" app.

Hope this helps others like me as well

Glad you are liking my settings amigo!
And thanks for sharing your OC. I am going to give it a try as with tri sli I noticed some issues gaming at 120Hz so I will try your settings. thumb.gif

I picked matte because I don't like reflections from any light that's in the room.

What kind of issues gaming? I have a single video card, is changing timing necessary?



A question I have for the rest. Do I need to unpatch and go back to 60hz before upgrading my video drivers?

The matte is actually a semi-glossy, but it does not reflect light like glossy versions. It is not similar to the matte that Dell or HP monitors use.

In my case I saw a few anomalies like lines, some random red or blue line across the screen from time to time which I did not get before doing SLI so I am hoping timings will fix it. Mine is showing like 480s clock right now.
