Yes, the part about the PS3 needing the multi-input version with a scaler is true as far as I know. smile.gif

Hello lads,

just got my Qnix Matte 2710 evolution ii. I'm having a hard time trying to calibrate it. Even after using a "huey Pro" I am not satisfied at all. The profile generated by that tool was way toooo yellow-ish.

Then I came across this thread and in particulat to this line:

I calibrated with the brightness at 22 clicks from the lowest setting, monitor tilted back, and at night with the lights off.

What does he mean by 22 clicks from the lowest setting. I understrand why he's talking about clicks, since the scale is not linear (1 click doesn't always result in +1 brightness). Assuming the lowest value is zero (it is, right?), by smashing the brightness 22 times up, my screen is still way way too dark, to the point the Dota2 is barely visible.

Can you please clarify? Plus, should I assume he left the contrast at max?

EDIT: i am not even happy with my blacks, maybe once I sort this out they'll get better too. So far they look more gray than black -.-
Thanks,
BB

Clicks of brightness on the monitor itself. Physically pressing the buttons to the right-hand side 22 times from the minimum brightness. Don't adjust anything in software, the ICC profile does that (and not by coarse adjustments like sliders but rather smooth curves).

11-12 clicks is about 140-150cd/m2 on my monitor. 22 is quite high.

how are the ICC profiles created? now i just wanted to see changes happening..

u have to go to control panel, appearance, display, then right hand side it will say calibrate monitor colors, do that, then AND ONLY THEN will it accept the icc profiles when u set them as default. wink.gif

They are all the same when it comes to dropping frames or not. The variance seen is a matter of quantity (in the case of the single DVI input - how much does it overclock?) over quality (Does the multi-input model drops frames or not?).

Can you please post the proof? I'm assuming you are using a multi-input Qnix QX2710?

Edit: @gonsa: Use Color Profile Keeper. Anything is better than the built-in Windows Color Calibration functionality.

what are you even saying?
how does quailty factor into dropped frames?

i'm not doing anything in the nvidia control panel aside from the OC to 120Hz.
Did you tick the box 'Use my settings for this device'? When I change color profiles I see a definite change, and I don't have to use any 3rd party software to keep it either....I am however using the ToastyX patch and CRU for my overclock, I don't know if that makes a difference or not.

Thanks for the reply. I figured he was talking of manually adjusting it on the screen OSD. My question was: is teh minimum brightness zero (that's what i get when I go all the way left)? If so, even 22 clicks righward aren't enough, still too dark. Weird that 12 are enough for you.

The above quote was copied and pasted from the first page of this thread where I also got the profile file.

How do I tell Cat control center to not touch anything?
Edit: as for the last question. When applying a profile through win them CCC seems to deactivate its own color adjustments.

Thanks again

Have you tried Battlefield 4 with your 1440p monitors ? If yes, which graphic card are you using, wich settings, and is it playable ?

My monitor should be here next monday, and am wondering what card to get.
I will try with my gtx580 but am sure it will be slow as hell.

Do you think gtx770 with 2go is enough ?
