yes it is. just diferent logo, even the housing is identical.

I got the Qnix and just my 2 cents:
I can't stand the image quality degradation above 75Hz. Well, but my subjective impression is, that 75Hz are already decent with that panel. May be related to the size, resolution or amount of motion blur. Of course 120Hz would still be much better, but I'm content so far.

So if one really wants a high refreshrate near to 120hz, I suppose the Overlord would be the better choice.

no guarantee with qnix or overlord monitors though, so you could have the same experience with either. Personally mine is fine at 120hz, and so are many others. and at 96-120hz the blur is way better than at 60-75 hz.

Or you could calibrate the screen at 120hz and achieve the relatively same quality. The distortion you are seeing is gamma with a bit of color warming at the higher refresh which is very fixable with calibration. Also you can get an overlord level display for half the price here: www.emaxeon.com

I tried various ICC profiles and it always looked worse than 60 or 75Hz.
Furthermore, with an Nvidia card you can't use such profiles in fullscreen exclusive apps (which is a mess and also needed for SLI).

If the color profiles look worse than they do not match your screen and you will need to calibrate yourself(whether that be manually or with a tool). You can can calibrate manually with relative accuracy at this site:

You can then force your calibration settings in games by using your drivers to calibrate and enable "gamma ramps" in the 3D settings OR use this utility to inject the color set:

Hope this helps you get more out of your monitor thumb.gif

Thanks for your help, but I don't want to mess around with inject stuff. I like to have a reliable setting that works under every condition.

Did someone compare the monitors from emaxeon.com to Overlords?
Is it certain there there is no color/gamma shift?

And, since both are S-IPS, they most likey have that crystal effect?

The emaxeon monitors are the exact same panel so the effects should be the same. IPS panels do not suffer gamma shift at overclocked speeds. Injection is a pain but setting it once and forgetting it can be nice if you only play a couple games. I recommend the driver calibration solution as it works just fine setting "gamma ramp" as enabled for your global 3D settings.

This....this and this! I've had three qnix's, people claim they have "great black levels" WELL YOU CAN'T SEE ANY DETAILS IN THOSE "BLACK LEVELS"! just a black outline. Also no point buying good GPU's cause when you O.C. it the gamma shift kills your game textures mad.gif Tempest is the best looking 1440 O.C. monitor, has warranty.....and better motion clarity I.M.O. but it has COIL WHINE although you can fix this by modding or use 60hz while not gaming as it usually happens only during white screens. GET THE TEMPEST thumb.gif

The black levels on the IPS screens are nothing to be proud of either, and coil whine is rather annoying... however, no distortion at high refresh rates is a massive plus.
