What over clocks better

The one input dual dvi or with display port
post #9092 of 25922
My QNIX overclocks to 110hz, however when I overclock it I get a faint buzzing noise. Any solution to reduce/remove the buzzing?

Yeah i read that, that's why I went with the glossy one.
Mine's behaving pretty well, OC's to 110hz stable, in game as well, no dead pixels, but suffers from a little BLB. But this is all normal.
I was interested in what was said about the glass plate over the glossy screen because I was contemplating opening it up to see if I can fix the BLB, but if there is another sheet of glass over the screen then I am worried that I'll mess something up rolleyes.gif

No you would see the glass if it was tempered.....its constructed a bit differently to a none glass one....theres 2 metal bars either side that steady the glass in place underneath the bezel held in by 2 screws on each of them (i have photos if anyones interested?) and i dont have that much bleed tbh as i think the glass pushes onto the actual panel and adds pressure to the screen just like the tape or paper fix.

Any info you might have, as well as pictures, would be much appreciated smile.gif
So you found it was easy to open?

Basically i followed the youtube video on how to open up the qnix at the start of this thread.....then once i got the bezel off you can see the 2 metal bars left and right.....i unscrewed these just to gain access to the glass panel as you have to use a stanley blade or very thin knife to cut through the gluey silicone type substance that holds the glass onto the metal frame.







Once you have cut along the glue it's just a case of carefully lifting up the glass........the glue is still very sticky so it reseals itself upon re-attaching it back to the frame which is good as re glueing it could have become a pain to do not to mention over spillage.

Hope this helps anyone with a Tempered glass who might want to remove dust etc. smile.gif

I was wondering if anyone can advise me:

I use to have 660ti SLI and ran at 120hz no problem
Switched to 280x CF and ran at 120hz no problem
Switched to 780 SLI and I'm getting 1-2 small flicker lines at 120hz, but everything is fine at 115hz.

So the bottom line... it's alright to purchase a tempered glass / glossy version? I'm still getting more info regarding this monitor before i purchase.

yeah took me 2 weeks to make my mind up......basically after my glass fronted Hazro 2560x1440 60hz glass fell off, i missed the resolution after i went to a samsung 27" 1920x1080 120hz....but loved the 120hz. of the sammy.

So these just look like the Hazros that can overclock to 120hz, but for half the price.

For the money theres nothing out there that even comes close to these Montiors........ some of you might be thinking "yeah but you got 14 dead pixels on yours" and yes that has soured it a bit for me as it has to go back to Korea, which leaves me without a Monitor for around 2 weeks.....but if i get another one and it's near perfect it will be well worth it imo. smile.gif

No doubt. I literally went through 4 monitors in a month before buying this one and lots more before that, never returned them, just sold them off at a loss because i wasn't happy with them. In a worse case scenario If this one broke down tomorrow (please don't) lol , i would buy another 1 instantly, and if that one broke down i would buy another one. The way i look at it is if i'm getting 3+ months from each monitor i'm getting my moneys worth. They really are fantastic monitors, i have had some expensive ones in the past and they don't compare.
I'm back baby!!!
