post #9551 of 25911
Anyone else have a GTX 670 and a QNIX? I've been having trouble with my overclock and testing it using http://www.testufo.com/#test=frameskipping.

I've been trying Firefox and Chrome, but I usually get a desync error in Firefox, and in Chrome at the moment it's usually going at like 30FPS.

Also, aside from that in the past I've gotten a 96Hz OC, but when I use Dota2 in borderless window mode (with compositing turned off), the FPS jumps all over the place and I get game-ruining graphical stutter.

I am running a second 1920x1080 monitor as an extended display, could this impact my OC and gaming?

I do not have a GTX 670 and QNIX but you may try to reset to defaults in NV Control panel and restart... or uninstall your NV drivers and use driver cleaner in safemode and delete the NVIDIA Folder in C: and try to install the new drivers again.

i just can't decide which seller should I trust. i would love to be able to ship it back if i dislike it (i have never had a bad pixel or excessive blb in my screen). i would also like them to be albo to ship it as gift. ofc I want it cheap and ship fast (this isn't really that important)


Ah right.....then the first bit still applies about the sellers policy on backlight bleed..... not sure any of them ship them as a gift as customs are wise to this.....accessoriswhole, greensum and dreamseller are the top main sellers not just for the amount they shift but for their customer service and positive feedback from customers.


Heres what AW have on their description........


We cannot guarantee for no backlight bleed.
It may have some backlight bleed exist due to panel characteristics.
Even Apple Cinema Display do not guarantee and responsible for backlight bleed
and they also do not take return for that reason.
For same reasons, we also do not guarantee its backlight bleed as return matter.
However, we do inspect each monitors for its condition and do not sell any monitors with excessive backlight bleed.
In normal user circumstance it doesn't have any problem, but can be shown in dark circumstance.

A post would be easier to find if the post # was provided.

Am slowly reading thru posts and agree with HardwareDecoder in post #8104 when he wrote:
“I don't really have time to search through all the pages looking for your post."

 

When you say in post # 8108 that "the first post about it is on page 393", the page # varies depending on the number of posts per page that someone sets in their preferences.

 

I set mine to 100 per page so this post of mine will appear on page 96 using my option.

 

Am not complaining. Just a suggestion for when the post # is available.

 

Edit: See that the link works to the post so that makes it even easier to find.

Hey all, this thread got me convinced to pull the trigger on one of these monitors. 100% happy with my decision. 120hz with the supplied dvi-d cable. No stuck pixels (that I can see), very minimal backlight bleed. Joined the forum just to say thanks to all the people on here for the wealth of information!

I am running SLI'd GTX 670's and I am running at 96hz.

When I did the test at that site, I was having sync issues. I did what it recommended and shut off my other monitor and made the browser window a square in the middle of the QNIX monitor...not full screen browser window and that fixed the sync issues.

I had read that having a second monitor can cause interference with the test and having the browser window full screen can too.

When testing in Battlefield 4 at 2560x1440 @ 96 I noticed no glitches or stuttering or anything so I assume it's fine.

I am having trouble getting things to work at 120hz though and I'm not sure why. Haven't dived into the issue yet.

Gents first time poster long time reader.

Building a new PC and luckily found this thread, searched through the threads yet a google search gives me conflicting results.

I will be building a pc with a GTX 770 (for me it more than enough).

My concern is blogs I have read mention they used 2 QNIX Monitors (with the multiple video connections) though, price wise 2 X-Star would save me a lot of money.

Now the GTX 770 has Dual Link DVI-D and DVI-I pretty straight forward. XStar model has DVI-D (I get it DVI-D and go to the DVI-I)

My concern is I found a thread from someone with this exact setup and when they tried to connect 2 of the Xstar monitors to the 770 one worked the other did not.

Was this possibly in error on his part or if I order the 2 monitors (with DVI-D port ONLY) and can plug them both in to the Nvidia card without issue?

Thanks in advance!!

I see you are the most recent entry in the members list which shows you bought from green-sum for $319.

 

Am wondering when you ordered it, if you paid any customs fees, and how long it took to arrive.

Not bad for the price! I'm thinking of picking up the X-star with two dead pixels. smile.gif


Those have been there for over a week which was when I first noticed they had a Clearance section which doesn't come up on the home page.

 

Did you try to contact them? I called three times, only reached a message machine, and never got a call back.

 

Site says "Product is sold as is with no warranty or exchange policy. Returns are not accepted. Please consider before purchase."

 

If I lived near them, would go and take a look.

I emailed them. Haven't heard back yet, I would love to save shipping costs and just go pick it up. I'm not too far away from them.
