I use the display to game primarily. I have not noticed any sort of input lag on this monitor. Take that how you will

Download that, choose your color profile and hit lock. I set it to start with windows on bootup.

That should help thumb.gif

Just tried and it worked thumb.gif

Where is Spartan F8's one? i want to give it a go

As soon as I got it, I bumped it to 96.. works great, no issues at all. I have yet to try 120, though.

So does the OSD affect overclockability none at all?

That's interesting then, maybe you got lucky smile.gif

Was playing around a lot more.

My new results, not much difference from before but i did get the pixel clock lower

(this was only possible after the new monoprice cable before with the stock cable i was only able to get to 2652x1445)
Pixel clock@120hz..............449Mhz (thought it was 443 but i guess i saw wrong)
Pixel clock@152hz..............569Mhz
...................................................^
this is the highest i have been able to go with CRU. If you use just the nvidia control panel and use CVT reduced you are at like 500Mhz already. With just the control panel i was able to get 134Hz which is 559Mhz before things got messy. Thinking of this as a kinda limit i tried to get the pixel clock as low as possible and then try again. This got me to 142hz which was just under the pixel clock of what i got before confirming they are very relative to each other. Next after adding the monoprice cable that was better than stock i got to 152Hz at just over the original 559Mhz showing some bandwidth improvement. Now since i hate uniformity issues i have set it back to 120hz but with the newly found total pixels and overall lower pixel clock. This reduced the "strain" i guess that was on the cable for the overclock and vastly decreased negative overclocking effects(gamma shift was better, uniformity was pretty much gone, etc)

Also using this same methodology i tried downsampling the screen to see how high the pixel count could go on this monitor. I am not going to get too much into it but i was able to get 4476x2342@30hz with an overall pixel clock of 561Mhz. Please be careful when downsampling though as it can cause the monitor to go into test mode and also corrupt the start resolution. If you do get where restarting the PC does not bring the picture back connect a separate monitor and boot windows, then connect the Qnix as secondary. After that you can switch it to primary and go on as normal. If anyone sees anywhere this can be improved PLEASE jump in. I have done a lot of reading but there could always be something i missed.

Hopefully this helps some people get 120hz or at least some better results at that refresh thumb.gif

EDIT: Fixed weird space removal

I tried his .2595...............1444 but i guess it was too much for my cable maybe..just went into test mode. 2652x1445 worked great for me and no more lines or issues when gaming at 120hz thumb.gif

Thanks for this, I was using shaolin95's to start with (and props to him for posting his timings) but was getting one narrow stripe down the monitor (only on OCN and with BF4 actually). These settings have sorted that. Between 3 kids and work, I don't get enough time to play around with the settings much so you guys have saved me a lot of time, and now I can really enjoy my new toy thumb.gif
