cool those let me boot up 120hz with no lines / artifacts that I can see so far.

I'll need to run that 120hz frame skip test to see if it is good or not.

Great! Make sure you use Chrome.. Firefox doesnt play nice with the frame skip test, at least for me.

Seems like I am good to go at 120 (still need to play games to confirm I guess).

EDIT: got green lines as soon as I launched metro last light. That is okay though pushing 120hz all the time on everything is gonna be hard anyway even with xfire 7950's i'd guess.

I think i'll try running 110 with these settings. Pixel clock only 421mhz so should be good for colors as well..





Thanks alot for posting those settings. I didn't want to try to figure it all out my self pretty busy with anatomy and physiology right now and prefer to spend time gaming not fiddling.

Btw which 120hz profile are most people using ? I am actually using the slh28 110hz profile at 17 clicks brightness like he said. Looks the best to me so far. Hutt132 has a decent 120hz profile but the slh28 one looks better to me.

Is there any solid info on how overclocking effects the life span of these monitors? as long as it lasts two good years i'll be happy. 4k should be affordable then anyway.

random musing: the wire they supply for the monitor has screws on it that aren't even long enough to actually screw in to the monitor.... I tried for like 10 mins couldn't get it to screw in to the monitor end, worked fine on the gfx card end though.

.

Try switching DVI ports if you can... Or get a different cable. But 110hz is totally fine, IMO. I usually run with 110hz just to keep the chip under 450mhz.

A question for monitor overclockers: Does overclocking your monitor reduces the panel's lifespan?

I have 7950's in xfire, each card only has one DVI. and with xfire you can only use the first cards ports supposedly. So i'd have to switch cards around to try another port.

I might do it eventually but i'm liking the 420mhz pixel clock of 110hz anyway. Seems the colors are a bit better and 10hz isn't gonna make a huge difference anyway.

Another cable might be an option, like I said earlier it seems the screws on the supplied cable aren't even long enough to screw in to the port on the monitor... I couldn't get it to screw in anyway. I just have it hanging there rolleyes.gif

I've seen some people say the mono price ones are better, other people say they aren't I would like a longer cable but I'd imagine that would reduce overclock potential.

I'm torn anyway..... I feel like I can tell the difference in BF3 between 60 and 110hz but to keep up such a high framerate @ 1440p I have to play with pretty low settings.

Seems like a big trade off, stunning visuals at 1440p or performance. I will likely only run 110hz on multi player games where quick reactions make a big difference.

So far the settings you gave me earlier for 120hz seem to be working great for 110hz. Played a few rounds of noshar canals team death match on low settings @ like 100+ to 150 fps on noshar canal and didn't seen any issue except maybe the colors not being the best even with the icc profile. Such is the fate when oc'ing these though.

Just received my qnix from red cap today. (After reading all the negative reviews if course) Ordered a Pixel perfect from him for 310. So far no dead pixels, very little bleed at top right. Will try to overclock tonight. The screen looks amazing next to my 1080p TN panel.

Still a little concerned about the high temps of the power brick. It's ALMOST to hot to keep your hand on. Does anyone know of a adequate replacement from ebay? I'm in Australia not that that should matter as i obviously have the right lead to the power point, just need a appropriate power brick for this monitor.

I'd like to know as well, from either Amazon or eBay.

I really wouldn't worry about it, it isn't gonna get hot enough to ignite wood. It does get fairly hot however.. I wouldn't leave it on a carpet floor mostly because of static and carpet insulating it making the bottom hotter though, not really because of risk of fire.

I really need to buy a laser thermometer, I've wanted one for awhile and this would be a good time to have one.
