That's similar to what Spartan had and he's been using it for 8months+. It's as low as you can go for 120Hz 1440p.

Well some people were having issues just the other day (page 806). Whether or not as a direct result from overclocking i don't know, but to me it sounds likely.

I had the Qnix at 112Hz for aboout 4 months I think.
I tried another monitor PSU, another DVI-D cable, and another PC.
The monitor also flickers when im in BIOS, so it has nothing to do with the drivers.



Can anyone help me or did anyone already have a similar issue and managed to solve it?

@A Monell: Well that#s what I call a coincidence^^ almost same minute same flickering.
Im also getting horizontal darker lines

I ran the Nvidia driver patch and was able to overclock to 120Mhz immediately with no problems (using the suggested heavy-duty cable and a GTX 760 2gig card ).
I have been running it at 60 Mhz for the most part with an occasional rainy weekend at 96 MHZ for RC sims.

Three weeks ago at 96 I started getting horizontal black bands that progressed to a dark screen with bands of my desktop jittering around. Originally this took several hours to develop but showed up immediately at 120 Mhz. I could also force this with the white screen in the TTi screen test utility. It is now constant at 90Mhz.

This week at 60 MHZ my brightness has started flickering.

Is this a common failure mode for these monitors?
I did purchase the three year extended warranty from IPSledmonitors so I am wondering whether to contact them and start the replacement process.

I was also wondering how reliable the power supplies for these are and if my symptoms pointed to a bad one.
Thanks for any ideas, Alex
I'm back baby!!!

which monitor did u get and which site? and how did shipping work out ?

i am in mumbai too and want a Monitor for regular work with maximum screen space and later to also PS3 game on it.

Decided to answer here so other fellow citizens can be helped as well smile.gif

People were going for Qnix and X-star was under priced and very few people were buying it. Since the first few shipments are always in great condition so as to increase the sale of the product, I went with x-star.

The shipping and customs came out to be 25% of the product price. Luckily the seller mentioned a lower price of 80$ only.

I think for PS3 you need to buy the one with multi-port, I have no experience with those models.

Also, checkout my review from my signature to get all the other details.
Very very light unnoticeable BLB, which should go once I try the tape fix but I would rather just leave it as its unnoticeable and it overclocks to 144 Hz stable biggrin.gif
post #8094 of 25888
Well i am back from Florida in which i very interestingly enough met a person who owned a Qnix(not giving any names). Anyways i just got done reading about 40 pages of posts and i did not see really anything new. I did humorously see someone ask the difference between a Qnix and an xstar again(i think that makes 44 times if you don't count the poll as extra).

I can report that my Monitor is still running strong at 120hz 24/7 @ 449Mhz(dont ask for my timings just find my post). I have also upgraded to two 770s SLI from my old 570s SLI setup(which my wife about killed me for LOL). The 770s did seem to do a bit better when benchmarking the monitor but i was still not able to get to 154hz completely stable. It just seemed to be a bit more stable but still a no go. I also found if you want some just crazy smoothness(without the Soap Opera effect) in movies you can change the "frames in advance" and GPU/CPU queue size in madvr(renderer for MPC or POT player) with smooth motion on. This increases the processed frames before they are displayed on the screen thus increasing clarity the higher the refresh is. It does look a bit weird when a video has slow motion in it. Warning though, after using this watching videos without it makes everything seem like a slide show.

I also read someone asking about 4K@60hz. It is definitely possible with a display port version 1.2(although we haven't seen any come with this natively yet). It also possible with very strict timings and the PCB this monitor has to get 4k@60hz(the resulting pixel clock would be around 539Mhz which is definitely doable with considering some of the people getting over 120hz here on stock timings). The problem is there is nothing native or directly overclockable yet. So the only way to get 4K@60hz would have to be built(the origin panel being the skyworth or the seike panel which are both capable of higher refresh at lower resolutions). I may in the future build a 4K@60hz monitor build but i have other projects currently. I will likely use the seike and the PCB from our Qnix(after some interesting programing).

I also saw many questions about the pixel clock data rate. Kokin has been keeping up quite a bit but i would like to point out that the MAX frequency for our monitor's electronics is 450Mhz so anything close to that would be considered OK. So if you hit the max exact refresh i have seen frequently of 459 your fine. This would be a very slight overclock from the 450Mhz ceiling. Honestly i have ran mine as high as 612Mhz and with some coaxing was still able to get a picture(with side effects).

Lastly, any GPU older than the 600 series for nvidia is likely not going to clock down with the pixel clock over 300Mhz(400Mhz for SLI). This has been gone over a few times and can say from owning a 500 series card and a 700 series card that it is true. If you are going to run 120hz with a 500 series or lower card just expect to use a bit more electricity and possible shorten your GPU's lifetime(maybe go from 20 years to 15 years so nothing to worry about and just about the same as a CPU overclock with disabling scale down features).

Anyway i am out night everyone

Good info Spartan!

So quick question for a noob here the point of lowering the pixel clock from stock Is to lower the frequency close to 450hz? so the monitor isn't being pushed to hard right?

Though I think I got a problem. I can go 120hz, 133hz, 140hz, and I see this number also capped in games with vsync, so it seems to work.. If I run the test on firefox it shows 120hz but with framestutter (2). If i run it on IE or chrome it stays as 60fps?

Also, what pixelclock is healthy? I am currently at 483 but I`ve read somewhere that it should not be above 460?

I installed the catleap drivers and im using the Nvidia CP.




edit - in some games i see 120fps with vsync on, in other games i see only 60fps in vsync on. and then in other games vsync off does 120fps cap and fsync on 60fps cap. why is this?


edit2, how do you apply settings with CRU? this is how it looks like but there is nothing like save or apply?


anyone?

I don't really have time to search through all the pages looking for your post. I doubt anyone does either. Why don't you post it again and maybe the OP will add it to the info on overclocking.

Also I'm really at a loss as to why you try to make it sound like the guy from florida who owns a qnix is in the witness protection program. I'm sure no one here really gives a crap if some random dude in florida owns a qnix.

okay i think i figured most of it by my own now.

is this frame skipping? http://imgur.com/1TQQkqb even at 70hz... what does that mean? screen is bad for OC?

i guess it is not recommended to keep the screen OC`d if frames are skipped?

My monitor from overclockmonitors.com should arrive today it was stuck in customs for 4 days, Only took 2 days from South Korea to New Zealand which was pretty amazing but stuck in customs for 4 days due to Customs/DHL messing around wasn't so much fun i had to keep on there back about it.. I am hoping mine doesn't turn out with dead pixels like timaishu one did cos i ordered pixel perfect as he did will let you guys know later today.
This is my 2nd monitor had to send back the first to Dream-Seller due to panel damage so scared ****less about reading Timaishu post today.. Fingers crossed..
post #8100 of 25888
Yeah my experience with them was great but just heard of another user which has like 4 dead pixels so that sucks. Hope yours is good.
