For anyone that remembers my posts from before. After returning perfect (aside from being unable to overclock) qnix to ispledmonitors.com, I ended up purchasing a "pixel perfect" model from overclockmonitor.net. That one was even worse, yes it could overclock, but it sat crooked and have several dead pixels and dust under the screen. After emailing back and for for close to three weeks, I finally secured a return(I didn't pay anything). Overclockmonitors.com made a damage claim with UPS, and whether they think it was actually damaged or if this is some sort of loop hole to get the monitor back for a lower or free price, I do not know. But once they received it, they told me their can either refund me, or ship me a replacement.

I can say that I am very happy with the customer service over at overclockmonitor.net. My only real gripe is their response times take a full day, and recently have taken upwards of several days. But they have been very helpful and understanding and I am glad I am getting the return I felt I deserved without me having to pay return shipping.

I will report back when I get my third and hopefully final monitor. (third times a charm right?)

Just overclocked my Qnix QX2710 to 96hz. It passes frameskip tests.

Are there any dangers to overclocking ?

96hz was my first attempt. Is it worth trying higher like 120 ?

EDIT: Just wanted to add, the average stable overclock for all monitors listed is 111Hz. The average for Qnix ones is also 111Hz. This number may be higher since others (like me) may not have attempted higher refresh rates than what we posted (like 96hz for me)

I've had my monitor overclocked to 120hz since day one, every once an awhile i'll set it to 60hz for the games that I can't push 96fps +. I've not had any issues or degradation.

Edit: Sometimes i'll just leave it at 60hz, Games like bf4 where you can select your refresh rate? I would set 120hz there, Only annoying thing is that bf3/4 wont stay at 96hz or 120 even though I've played a match minutes before and join another server to see my frames are capped at 60fps, i have to set 60hz and then apply, then switch to either 96 or 120hz again for it to display higher than 60fps.

Lets see, W-LED, somewhat bad color quality compare to ultrasharps(you dont say), PLS = eIPS etc. I need money for a 780 TI or 780 ti BE so.... and still want some $ leftover.

Most likely your 5850 since I can reach up to 1300mhz with my 7950 and it still runs 120Hz fine.

That's a lot of money for a 780 TI. Why not double up on your 7970? You'll get the same/better performance for half the price.

PLS ~= AH-IPS, not eIPS. PLS is clearly superior to eIPS. The panels are a full 8bit panels, and almost all if not all eIPS panels are 6bit + FRC panels. Ultrasharps do have better uniformity and general colour calibration, but that's not an issue with the technology, but rather something that comes with factory setup.

I really wish RGB LED's price becomes reasonable.

So do I.

But to be honest, RGB LED monitors don't offer anything over WLED monitors. They offer a larger colour gamut to be sure, but seeing as how WLED monitors already cover the sRGB gamut (99%+ of the internet and consumer content) the extra gamut is actively detrimental :-/
