As mentioned, turning off AA completely (or using FXAA if you really need it) - and HBAO/Tesselation can boost performance a lot.

I just purchased my second X-Star, I hope it arrives as awesome as the first one smile.gif

Guys, I am now looking for a desk mount for these monitors, hoping for something cheap (I'm in Canada).

I have 2 X-Stars, and hope to get a third (right now I have an old heavy HP 24" LCD).

Ideas?

Ordered my first QNIX last week! Due to the weekend the payment wasn't processed until early Monday morning and that's when the monitor shipped out. It was at my doorstep Wednesday afternoon. For free shipping it's unfathomable that something made it to my house from S. Korea in under two days.

Everything arrived in great condition and I only have two issues. First was the screw to connect the stand to the monitor. The screw was stripped and isn't really gripping it's threads. Anybody know of what size this screw is? I'm thinking maybe a #8, but just to be safe I'm bring some #6, #8, and #10 from work to check it out later.

My only other problem was a single red pixel sitting to the bottom of the center. That looks to be the worst of my issues as BLB isn't as bad as other people have mentioned, or maybe I have a higher tolerance (or it's very possibly I was so damn excited that I turned a blind eye to it). I did an initial overclock to 96hz just to see if it would work and it did. When I get the thing properly mounted on a stand this afternoon I'll do more extensive tests and see if my SLI GTX680 setup can even handle what I'm trying to overclock to.

Well i am not sure if anyone is interested but here is my settings for downsampling the Qnix to 4K. I have been PMing back and forth with another member trying to optimize this to try and get 4K at as high of a refresh as possible. So far i can only get 55hz but the other member has been able to get 60hz. His timings don't work for me but mine are a bit more tight so he may get higher once he gets back to me. The goal for me is to get 4K@72hz downsampled(may not be possible but it is a good number to shoot for).

This will be most usefull for people who want the highest detail possible with even sacrificing the high refresh. Many people think 72hz is a big leap from 60hz and many can't see a big difference from 96hz to 120hz(not counting lightboost as the Qnix does not have it). I have played several games with the 4K downsample and i can really say it does help a lot(especially with older games). Also many games that are not FPS or very reaction skill based would benefit more from the mass increased detail and sharpness. I played some Skyrim at 1440p@120hz and then 1440p@60hz and really there was not a major difference(may be due to the games somewhat poor coding). I then applied the downsample and played 4K@55hz. The increased detail and clarity is not night and day but is definitely worth noting. Other games like civilization were benefited greatly by the increased map scope or screen real estate.

I welcome any other members interested in this to try it out and share their settings. The higher the refresh @ 4K the better. Any higher downsample than 4K is a bit more of a bragging right but i would still be interested to see it. My current highest downsample is 5120x2880@24hz(48hz interlaced). I find this to be the one other form of overclocking that has not been explored to much here so it would be great to at least get some good research behind it.

Happy overclocking smile.gif



EDIT: I would also like to note if you do not get to 60hz and only get something like 55~58hz then it will not be a standard refresh per your EDID(so it will not show up in games). Normally many downsampling people will tell you to manually hack the EDID to include the odd refresh but you can also add a native offset refresh to CRU. For example if your 4K downsample is 57hz and it does not show up in games then add a custome resolution in CRU for 1440p@57hz. This is an in-direct way of "hacking" the EDID(which i find MUCH easier as it is like 6 steps instead of two more applications and 36 steps). After there is a native resolution with that refresh windows will now see it as a standard refresh thus displaying it in games and the windows resolution selector and displaying it for all intermediary resolutions(including your 4K downsample).
