If I can find it, I will link it, otherwise this is all I have to show:

You can see in page 2 that they have the multi-input version and through the comments, HDMI could not overclock, but the DL-DVI worked for both monitors.
Again... the "overclock" was not validated via the frame skipping test. Thus it cannot be relied upon as a test for the ability to overclock (for example, the recent CrossOver Blacktune 2735 was thought to be able to, but has since been proven not to be overclockable.)

Well I've been trying to find the other posts, but so far the handful of posts I've read in the last hour have been able to overclock the multi-input to about 75Hz (even with HDMI) and higher overclocks tend to skip frames for the ones I have read.

I'll try to contact the person who did that review and let them do a frame skip test if possible, so we can find out.

Whacking this here too for anyone else currently making this decision on an overclockable choice some info i havnt read anywhere else and noticed while deciding myself.. the QNIX has 6MS response time where as the XSTAR has 8MS. Id read that they were similar in all ways and doubt its much difference but since im getting one for the overclockability i know ill go with the QNIX. Really obvious info but i got seconds away from pulling the trigger on a XSTAR from reading that it was the same as the QNIX but cheaper and i know there would be other eager beavers doing the same

LOL just looked at the first page... full retard

Ummm no. They are identical. Response times listed are incorrect. Qnix and X-Star are produced by the same company and the X-Star will eventually (if not already) be discontinued.

for what it's worth, for Portugal, the customs were €80 and the handling by FedEx were €49.
total €130!

all hail the portuguese taxes!

Does ToastyX update his NVIDIA Pixel Patch tool? With the new patch that came out, the SLI limits can't be found and it screws up 120Hz for me (I'm using a GTX 690). Had to revert back to the old driver.

Double post.

I know people were experimenting with different gauge DVI cables...

Has anyone played with different gauge power cables? I went digging through my office server closet in search of a replacement power cord (US plug), and found that we had 18ga cables and 14ga cables.

Might this have some positive effect with overclocking?

Might do, Spartan found that shorter length cables helped, and some people have found thickness to make a difference, though with cables it's very hit-and-miss. I was lucky enough for my included cable to manage 120Hz just fine, some people have ordered the thicker cable multiple times and found just one that lets them push the higher Hz.

 

There doesn't seem to be any risk of damage here, so I would experiment away. And let us know the results :thumb:
