post #9501 of 25887
I don't really know if this was talked about before or not...


I just noticed that (currently only have two of my monitors setup) that both of these monitors look different together. If I put a white or a light color program/image between the two, you can see that one is more of a darker/greyish color (or tone, not really sure how to describe it, maybe onees just brighter) its not serious, but I never changed color profiles or any settings other then overclocking. Shouldn't they be exactly the same?

Has anyone attempted to replace the speakers in their Qnix? The stock units have a noticeable "tinny" sound, and not that it matters to much because the screen alone is worth the price, but id like to have a complete monitor with awesome speakers. If no one has tried this I may make a tutorial on this because im certainly going to research and replace mine.

There seems to be a good amount of variation in the monitors. Some come with a warm yellow / orange hue. Some come with a cooler blueish hue.

Not at all. All monitors are different which is why icc profiles that are good for one qnix may not be good for another. If they have good quality control you would "hope" they are similar, but in reality they never are. I bought 3 dell s2240l's for eyefinity and as well as all having different temperatures to the picture they also were different sizes, half a inch difference between the 3 of them, meaning a full inch between smallest and the biggest. It's not just the qnix , it's all monitors/tv's, that's why it's called panel lottery.

There is a youtube video explanation on this... Especially when you overclock them.

I've been trying out different profiles in the last few weeks and the 120Hz profile from Zipper Fairy is still my favorite one. Thanks again for sharing. biggrin.gif

So I still can't figure out why I do not have color management options.

I'm thinking it is because I do not have any MONITOR drivers installed maybe?




Lots of googling says that "third party control of color management".

I have the typical software installed: CCC, AMD APP SDK, Raptr, etc. What else could be controlling my color profiles?

Looks like you might need the catleap driver from the OP

Guess I am blind because I have not found a link to the monitor driver in the OP or in my various searching online. I hear rumors it exists though.

More research tells me the catleap driver allows the "overclocking" to stick in games. What does device manager say your monitor is?


EDIT: Here is the link to the Samsung driver for the PLS monitor that uses the same panel as the QNIX.
