[Official] The Qnix/X-Star 1440p Monitor Club - Page 97

post #961 of 25893
Well I decided to stop messing around and just open the monitor. The results were amazing as I was able to get rid of almost all the bleed.

The metal frame was pushing on the panel due to it being slightly bent out of shape, and the clips holding it on the panel. I used pliers to bend the clips so that none of them can clip on the panel, so they stop clamping down on the screen. That left only the 2 side brackets holding the panel in place.

Now the only down side is that you can kinda push the panel in at certain points, so I have to remember not to use force next time I wipe the screen clean.

The 2 pesky stuck pixels are still there, not really sure how to deal with those at the moment. The video that cycles through colours hasn't worked yet, but I hope they will go away soon on their own.

I get the same. It obviously gets much worse when going higher (they are pretty much constantly there at 125Hz).

Thanks for the thread.

Finally finished reading and ordered an Xstar from hulustar.

Hoping I get lucky with the monitor!

Just in case anyone has been following my posts i have been able to push mine to 142hz with ALL kinds of tinkering. I have been using the stock cable doing this as the old dual link newegg cable did not work at all when OC. I have 3 three foot cables on their way from monoprice. All are 3' long as the shorter the better(usually). I want 144hz soooooooo bad for bragging rights tongue.gif . I also want to let you all know even at 142hz these DO NOT FRAME SKIP(tested with refresh rate multitool). i have done lots of gaming and with the games i can run at 120hz(Gfx card limitations mad.gif ) i have have practically no motion blur or input lag. i have been gaming at 120hz most of the time but also have been doing 140hz but i do see some lines here and there. for those wondering about game experience i have had good experience with every game i have tested so far and i will list them below.

Blur
cryostasis
crysis (had to lower a lot of settings to get 120hz but it does play crysis rolleyes.gif )
crysis 2 {not as bad)
crysis 3(almost as bad as 1)
dead space 1,2,3 (120hz easy on SLI gtx570s)
Fable lost chapters
left for dead
Quake 2 (why not)
shadowrun (120hz made me damn near unstoppable)
unreal
tomb raider
dragon age
lost planet
Halo 2
prototype

Hopefully this helps some people but i can really tell you about my experience with shadowrun since it is a very fast pass game. Basically it gives an unfair advantage over most of the guys in there(aside from other 120hz gamers maybe) it just seemed like i have a have second of spidy sense or something and i was not having just a good night as i have been playing off and on for the last week and it is always the same.

anyways i have gone on enough and will check back in after my cables get here

when do you think these will be available in DK? Probably somewhat later right? Anyway good luck with your monitor, and taxes and everything.

I got the tracking number yesterday morning, but the tracking information just started to show up now. I don't understand how did I got the tracking number before he actually shipped the item??
The item was picked up today afternoon.

That´s just because he prints out the ups/dhl/whatever label, puts it on the box, and sends it to you. In theory he could let the box stand there for a month. You won´t see anything before the courier guy scans it.

Like I said yesterday, he shipped the item 2 days ago but DHL only now inserted the data on their system

Quick Q, if I'm using a single nvidia card do I need to use the pixel patch?

Hoping I can just use the OC inf and set the resolution in nvidia CP.

Thanks!

Just trying to avoid the watermark if possible.
