[Official] The Qnix/X-Star 1440p Monitor Club - Page 885

post #8841 of 25893
Hey guys, I got my qnix 2710 running at 96hz, but all games i've tried seem to limit the FPS to 60. (for example batman arkham origins and BF4. BF4) BF4 even reports a max resolution of 2560 x 1440 @ 59.96.

Does anyone know why that is? OC'ing it is kinda the point here to get the higher refresh rates in games.

EDIT: Nvidia control panel shows 120 HZ, UFO frame skipping test shows 120 hz, no frame skipping.

So what's with the games? I don't get it

Thanks though, happy I can get 110hz! smile.gif

I actually got 120hz for the first time with these settings!
a shame it doesn't work within bf4 :/

Yep, its calibrated with a spyder elite, did about 100 calibrations on all different brightness settings and refresh rates. I went with max brightness for gaming as you.are creating some black crush by over clocking. Max brightness on mine after the over clock and calibration was 240 CD/m. My screen is glossy , battlefield 4 seriously looks crazy good on this monitor.

I know some people will say 240cdm is too bright but for online gaming I wouldn't want to go any lower than 200cdm, its too hard to spot people. 120cdm is generally recommended for color critical.work like prints, not gaming.
I'm back baby!!!

Try putting Vsync off, normally it is on on default.

I

I got a non pixel perfect from accessorieswhole, not a single dead/stuck pixel, it seems to be more a marketing thing than anything else.
I prefer glossy screens so it's a no brainer for me, but if u feel safer paying a little xtra then go for it. 19 $ isn't exactly a whole lot. I'd also take the store rating into consideration, and go with greensum.
