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


Ordered it a couple weeks ago, only took around 5 or 6 days to get to me, no customs fees (U.S.).

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 don't know exactly if some might come with issues, but I have 2 XSTARS connected to a 770 through DVI, working without issue, both overclocked to 96hz. I will also be getting a multi input QNIX and connecting it through DisplayPort (hoping that it overclocks). The 770 is a good card.

BIG THANKS!! Now I can order thumb.gif

OK, so I managed to add the color profile from the first page to both my monitors, but they still seem off from each other. How do I know the profiles are working?

Ok so my X-star showed up today without warning lol. Anyway worked a 16hr shift and now getting to set this thing up. First impressions are the packing was very very good, the box had zero damage. Hooked it up right away and turned it on, everything works great, not one single dead pixel, mind you that I did NOT order a pixel perfect monitor. I did a quick 96hz OC and it took right away. Not sure if my 7950's will push this thing properly at 120hz on BF4 but I might as well try to see if it will OC that high.

I have changed my color calibration to a few from the first page. How would I revert it back to the stock color profile?

That’s great! Even more so for “the guy that if something goes wrong it's going to happen to me”.:)

 

Having ordered the same item from dream-seller, hope I’m as fortunate.

 

Were you charged any customs fees?

It was worth the little delay in shipping. thumb.gif It overclocks right on up to 120hz as well. I haven't been charged any as of yet, Fedex dropped it off and my wife signed for it.

Download monitor calibration wizard and if it's loaded it should look like the image below with some color and variation in the line, and NOT a straight grey line from bottom left to top right.

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..
