[Official] The Qnix/X-Star 1440p Monitor Club - Page 856

post #8551 of 25893
Got my Qnix in today and have been tinkering with it for a few hours now. Night and day vs my old monitor! I'm extremely impressed. Zero dead/stuck pixels so I did well there. I do have what I would say is average BLB for these monitors. Plus a little yellowing on the bottom right so I'm going to eventually take it apart and do some fixing. Have a different issue that I managed to snap a picture of. In an all-black screen I get some sort of off-shaded bar that runs vertical. Its hard to notice and took some work to just get a shot of it. It seems to source right out of that yellowing I spoke of and doesn't appear in any other color than all black. Any color or white, there's no sign of it. Its not a huge deal and its something I can live with if I have to but I personally think it has something to do with the panel issue (bend) that is causing the yellow. Anyone else ever experience this?

Mine has something like that as well, except it runs horizontally from left to right and it's more noticeable while I'm scrolling on a web page or something. Not noticeable during gameplay or anything. It's towards the bottom of the screen, a little ways up. I think I can live with that. Where I notice it most is using this web page.

Also, I did a red/black/green/blue background test. It seems I have a dead red subpixel in one spot. That's all. Since I'll rarely be ever looking at a pure red background, I think that's fine, since that's all I've seen. I haven't even ever noticed it during regular use, just pure color background tests.

This is what is bothering me the most:
I have two reasonably sized patches of backlight bleed (yellowish) that are on the very bottom middle, that's what's bothering me the4 most. To the left and right of the bottom middle. They extend a decent ways in though. Anyone got some ideas on how I should go about fixing these? They're pretty apparent on dark backgrounds and stuff regardless. Picture:



It's kind of a crappy picture but you can see those two patches. Right in between them is pretty much the center of the screen. I've tried bending the left and right side of the monitor towards me a bit. What happens is it shifts to the opposite side of the side I'm bending when I do that. I guess this might be possible to resolve using some cardboard or something. Any ideas on where to put it?



So total list of flaws:
1. Random very slightly off-color band about 30% up the screen (annoying during browsing but nothing major).
2. Dead red subpixel (really terribly minor)
3. Backlight bleed at the bottom.

Well for 320$ it's still not a bad deal. Plays games fine, though that backlight bleed is terribly noticeable on dark backgrounds... though it's not any worse than one of the Viewsonics I got. If I get it fixed this thing will be much better. Though that off-color band kind of bothers me... it's not even an accurate description since I don't know what to call it. I probably won't bother with overclocking since I don't think these are meant to do that.

Edit: Actually dead subpixel thing turned into a stuck pixel... o.o Well whatever

My 7970 wasn't down clocking at idle , was sitting on 56 degrees at idle depending on ambient temps and i discovered setting it to "automatic lcd standard" in cru instead of manual has made it down clock. Now sits on 38 at idle, still a little up from 35 before the over clock. Give it a shot if it doesn't put your pixel clock any higher. thumb.gif

Mine downclocks to 500Mhz regardless of being 120Hz or 60Hz. Is your ULPS disabled?

I guess you could always just use the higher refresh rates when you really need it.

Yeah, ulps is disabled. I just set it to auto in cru and run 96hz all the time. 60hz requires a different icc profile so i'm not switching between the 2. I decided 96hz was way better once i tried it out so i'm sticking with that. Cheers.

found this in the crossover thread:

http://www.overclock.net/t/1355400/if-you-own-an-nvidia-card-and-buy-a-27-korean-ips-prepare-to-take-it-up-the-rear

did anyone try to test it with a qnix/xstar and an nvidia card?

^Anyone, or is it a TL;DR moment? My only real question is about the BLB, and suggestions on how to bend the panel...

I have dual SLI EVGA 580 3gbs.

When I run just one I could not get it to downclock at all, except on 60hz. I think I might have been able to downclock at like 70hz or something but didn't bother.

Now, when I run in SLI I can downclock while at 96hz on desktop and it idles down to 400 not 50 like 60hz does, but it does downclock a little. So now , I run 96hz on the desktop and 120hz while gaming.

That's my experience at least, the patcher site says there are exact numbers for full downclocks etc, but i could never get it to work properly. SLI was the only thing that helped me. I've tried older patcher, older CRU, older drivers and all with the same result. Changing the hz and/or SLI was the only solution I found.

There are a few YouTube videos on panel bending and the tape fix for normal BLB. I'm going to be doing some research on this myself since it's something I will be attempting in the near future.

Is your "off-color" line visible during a straight flat color background if you look for it enough? Mine is mostly visible while scrolling through this site...
