If that's the case then people with bad backlight bleed got monitors with the various layers of their panel with some gap variations that introduce this bleed. I can make yellow bleed appear and disappear at the bottom of my screen with just my finger edge swiping across it.
So I can't really fix it by opening it?

You should see your screen change as you toggle between them. If you have a Catleap and a Qnix, you need to select the Qnix one from the top dropdown menu.

I followed an overclocking guide that had me install a hacked Catleap driver for the monitor, it is in fact a QX2710 though. This guide is what I followed. I'll keep playing around with it.

I hope by "NEW BATCH," they don't mean non-overclockable monitors....... I'm pretty sure everyone remembers the catleaps 2B, 2C, 2D models....? nerdsmiley.png

I have been looking for a 120hz capable 1440p IPS/equivalent for months now, decided not to get a Catleap and wait for something nicer that isn't going to buzz...

Finally a few weeks ago I noticed these, and got an account here specifically because of the thread on this monitor. (I've just been punching "QX2710" into google to get here wink.gif I can be glad to be a part of the club with my first post here - ordered pixel perfect from dream seller 4-18, recieved 4-22. No dead pixels, minor bleed, and running without issues at 96hz.


I'm having a problem where my screen's vertical position is several pixels off - worse on the left side than the right, so my screen is actually unnoticeabley crooked as well as having some pixels cut off on the bottom of the screen. I can't fix this in the nvidia panel as it's not a VGA monitor.

Maybe I will open it up to correct everything, unless someone has another idea.

Welcome to OCN! Many new users around here, so you're right at home.

As far as the monitor being vertically off, I had the same problem. Go to the first post and look for the "wntrsnowg mod" solution to fixing panel play (and also screen centering)

Awww ****! Things are looking up. biggrin.gif


HI, thank you for kindly understanding. But please disregard the last
message. It was sent by mistake. ?The message was meant for purchasers of
standard pixel monitors. Yours is pixel perfect and shipped out yesterday.
Your fedex tracking number is . Thank you.

Anyone else having their computers reboot often, especially a minute or so after system resume after hacking up their drivers to support higher refresh rates. I could be unrelated, but it would just be a big coincidence in timing given it started right afterwards.

Also, I'll come back to my machine sometimes and notice the calibration is off and look at the Color Management window and see that the QX2710 is missing so I can't change my calibration without rebooting. madsmiley.png When it's in this state, the system's screen resolution control panel looks like this for it:



Notice I can't change (without rebooting) the monitor's "driver" as it's grayed out:

Anyone else hear a constant buzzing sound with their QNIX? With my Catleap I could only hear it on bright white pages, now I can pretty much hear it at any time when my house is quiet.

Edit: Okay it's noisier when it's past 100hz, at regular 60hz I can barely hear it anymore. Is that a normal occurrence with you guys?
