Agreed. If you don't want to spend 2 hours of trial and error with CRU timings and then spend about 2 hours calibrating then get the overlord for twice the price. For me getting a korean display was about buying a product AS-IS and then modifying it to not only as good as name brand but in some ways better. This is just an extension of that to save money. You overclock and there are side effects with the Qnix but they can be dealt with adjustments.
If money is not so much a factor where you will buy an overlord over a Qnix why not just go slightly further and get a name brand 1440p monitor and then get the overlord PCB. Unless you are looking for a grey area the two ends of the spectrum right now are the Qnix as the cheapest best bang for you buck but comes with a good deal of "assembly required" non of which has been completely un-beatable. And on the other end you could get a name brand LG monitor at 1440p and get a overlord PCB. This way you get all the benefits of a name brand panel and overclocking at the price of cost.
The overlord monitor is a kind of in-between or grey area and still may be worth it for some who want an overclocking IPS panel rather than a PLS panel and can't find a catleap 2B.
