I don't have access to an active adapter, though the person who sold this Qnix to me used a DL-DVI --> mini-DP (active) adapter to use this monitor on a Mac. Unfortunately, he only used OSX, so I couldn't test out 120Hz when I bought the monitor from him.

All it means is that for vsync to have any positive effect when running at 100Hz your computer needs to be able to render the game at 100 fps or more. Otherwise it will just lower your fps.

Just tried it for who ever was asking with my spare active adapter i have lying around from my eyefinity days and it's a no go at 96hz and 60hz, no picture, blue led just flashes on the monitor.

Was it a single link or dual link DVI adapter? My passive one works, though it has a few lines that flash here and there.

Should I, and if I do, should I buy a third 670 ftw for it? How hard is overclocking the monitor?

Dual link. I got no picture with either 96hz or 60hz, it's definitely a active display port adapter as well, i used it for eyefinity. Weird.

For the VESA mount, my Shimian needed 1/4" spacers (Home Depot had some nylon ones for 32 cents each). For my old Samsung that I mounted for a couple days before my new X-Star showed up, the normal 1/2" or 3/8" screws (whatever came with; I forget the length) fit all the way in. For the X-Star, the 1/4" spacers were too big, so I found some old nylon washers laying around that were maybe 1/8"-ish that worked perfectly. It doesn't seem like hole depth has any consistency. If you're waiting for a monitor (and plan a VESA mount), it might be a good idea to run and get some different sized spacers/washers so you can use your new toy when it arrives.

I'm about to order a QNIX QX2710 LED EvolutionⅡ2 27" matte from green-sum. Two questions for you lovely folks:

- Is there an increased risk of trapped dust if you get a Tempered Glass version? Or is the likelihood equal?
- Has anyone ordered something similar from green-sum in the UK recently? I've contacted them asking about whether or nor they mark it as a gift, and what they put the value down as but they said they can't confirm until Monday.

Thanks!

I'd say the risk of dust is much higher since you add an additional layer that isn't part of the panel. That is just my logical conclusion, not personal experience, but you would have to have looked at hundres of different ones from each model to make any good conclusions based on personal experience.

I did not order from green-sum because AccessoriesWhole had a much better pixel policy but I got this response from green-sum a few days ago:

Please remind us at once after you order, if you want to declare your item lower value.
I know from others that they don't list a lower value unless you ask them to.

I'm in the USA but I ordered from green-sum back in August and my monitor just died on me. I contacted them and it took 3 emails and the threat of a chargeback to get a response back. I sent in a video showing the defect and they told me to wait until Monday for them to respond. The monitor was great before this and I probably just got unlucky but if you do decide to purchase this monitor, from any seller, make sure you buy the Squaretrade warranty.
