The tilt stem wouldn't move (the 2 screws holding it within the monitor case are probably too tight), so rather than take the monitor apart and risk messing up something, I built a stand to mount to the 4 VESA mount screw holes with a wood base and 2 metal brackets, It works fine and is more stable than stock stand. I don't need to overclock since I rarely play games (more interested in stock market watchlists, etc., 60Hz is fine for my use). I'm very pleased with my $279 hi-res monitor, much better than 1080p monitor and great deal.

No pixels? You sure you don't want to send it back...

Pics of the stand! Love the DIY monitor work...

I would load it by going to start menu, typing in "color" then click on color management, make sure the box that says use my settings for this device is ticked, then add the profile. 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..






EDIT:

I have left the most important step out, you need to place the icc profile in \Windows\system32\spool\drivers\color

I'm having an odd issue with my Qnix QX2710. When I bought it, I was using a Geforce 770 and it worked well and overclocked to 120 Hz with no problems. Today I upgraded to a Geforce 780 Ti and reinstalled drivers and the settings etc, but the thing is that now it's working really bad. It doesn't overclock one tiny bit (after any overclock the screen is fine after a few seconds and then turns blue and everything is messed up). Also even without any overclock now the screen is flickering all the time. I can easily see the backlight turning on and off.

Any idea what the problem might be?

Any thoughts on this? (The old card was MSI and the new one is EVGA).

I also reinstalled all the drivers and completed all the steps, nothing changes. It doesn't even overclock 1Hz above 60. so basically anything above 60 returns a flickering screen. but the screen flickering at normal refresh rates is gone now. I'm using the newest drivers (331.82).

Used another graphics card (another GTX 770), it now overclocks!

Is there something wrong with the GTX 780 Ti that I have?

Hmm.. did you maybe try using a different driver version on the 780 Ti? Very odd problem you have.

Anywhere have the glossy model for around $280?
post #9669 of 25892
Alright so I just got my monitor, found it was @ the wrong post office as well.

Turned it on ( at work ) and it looks great for 1 , 2nd though ITS MATTE, I clearly ordered gloss, and double checked on amazon, so contacting the seller. Other than that quality is very nice. Sucks cuz now I need to send it back.

Other issue is thing lines keep zipping across the screen, white/gray, not sure what the issue is here, tried connecting to a normal power plug vs using the adapter. So 1st attempt = defect I believe + received the wrong monitor |: Also the box says DP2710LED/MDP but on the side it has DP2710LED checked vs DP2710LED/MDP not sure what this means.

Gonna order from dream seller and hope I get a better model, I'm in love though no qualms if I get a good batch.

Also is there any diff between tempered glass and glossy?

besides the price.
