[Official] The Qnix/X-Star 1440p Monitor Club - Page 952

post #9511 of 25901
So I know there are a bunch of links, but anyone wanna help me out quickly lol

I have 2 XSTARs at 96hz, and will hopefully have a third QNIX at 96hz as well. I am running Windows 8.1.

Where and how do I get the best color profile? Install instuctions? Or do I have go through that entire video?


**Also, is it possible back light bleed can get worse? I swear one of my monitors looks worse recently.

You just download what profile you want from the link in the OP. then install them through color management. Desktop (right-click) > screen resolution > advanced settings > color management > add > browse. Tick the box that says use my settings for this device.

Getting some weird backlight issues.. every so often, the monitor will instantly become very hazy and washed out.. then slowly returns to normal over a period of 5-10 minutes. Anyone else had this happen?

Have any of you tried to OC the Qnix when running SLI?
I just got my second gtx 780 yesterday, updated to latest drivers, did everything in the order I did before the upgrade (when i was running it without problems at 96hz)
I used the full patcher, rebooted, opened up CRU and did that whole thing, rebooted, changed to 96hz.
Now both in heaven and 3dmark the screen just goes black and i have to reboot.
When i enter windows it says that windows has recovered from a shutdown.
can't run games, and now it's just crashing every minute or so regardless of what I'm doing
I'm running the new .82 drivers btw

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

Thank you for the driver. Just what I was looking for.

Unforunately that didnt help my issue. I still cannot control the color profiles through windows color management.

Here's the icc profile i made for 96hz.. i think it's the best 1 but i may be a little biased thumb.gif

As far as making the profile stick, load it via that windows setting you are using, download mcw from the link below, and install it. restart the computer, once restarted open mcw, make sure it is not the default curve when you open it, meaning it's not a straight line from the bottom left to the top right of the box, it should be a little tiny bit curved for my profile. If it's loaded enter a name for it in mcw, click save, then load it from the drop down box and click force persistent profile, then click load again to make sure it's loaded. works like a charm thumb.gif

Don't mind the bad colors in this pic, fraps doesn't use the icc profile for some reason when i take pics, which is why i use dxtory for everything but the desktop, everything else uses the icc profile, fraps might not because i don't have the full paid for version. Here's what it should look like if loaded properly..

Hey guys did you know that the Glossy version of the Qnix has been discontinued...I was looking to get one and they are back ordered everywhere, then I saw that accessoriewhole on ebay had some so I bought one, and he replied to me that he didn't have it anymore that the manufacturer would not be getting more glossy panel and that it was discontinued...any of you guys heard about this or is he telling me lies so I grab another version from him?

Thx

Thank you for the information. I will check it out, but I would still like to figure out why win8.1 doesnt show any display devices under color management.

Get Color profile keeper and ignore that terrible color management in windows.
