Qnix and X-Star monitors new timings and overclocking guide Club - Page 42

post #411 of 458
I tried using the custom resolution method of the latest drivers when I recently added a qx2710 to my setup again but it kept giving errors about the monitor not supporting the resolution or refresh rate.

Went with the usual driver patcher and cru method, all has been well at 110hz.

Ya I went the CRU way too, I couldnt get CCC to go any higher than 60Hz and stay.

Currently using 96hz, really wanted 110-120 but I guess, for $330cad I cant cry about it. the 1440p is amazing though. Now all I'm trying to figure out is why my black desktop looks washed out, like it would on a TN panel.

(anything higher than 96 gave me the purple mist people were talking about, 110 and 120 give the "your oc is too high"--green lines.)

Some images of my BLB...looks really bad imo. Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

Just got my Qnix. Would like to begin OC-ing while the day is still young.

I noticed the Guide is made for Catalyst 14, in 16 they now have Custom Resolutions, Should I still follow the guide on page 1? (patch drivers and all that EDID stuff)

Have you tried the reduced timings from the first post in this thread? I was getting flicker and green lines with 110hz on mine as well but when I tightened up the timing, the lines went away and the monitor has been stable for a few weeks.

On a side note, these monitors are a beauty while overclocked with Doom. Great looking pixels going 110 miles per hour 😎

Tightened Timing... All I saw was changing vertical lines...was there more?

Mind if you could just post your 110 timings? would love to see timings of someone with the same "gen" panel as mine, I believe Lawson (1st post) is using the old gen panel that OC'd to 120 ez-pz.

Hyve: 96 is best anyway, anything above 100 you have to use custom color profiles and color enforcers cause higher the overclock darker the image is on the screen. and the backlight bleed is normal, put some LED lights behind your monitor, I bought a $20 thing from china that changes color and sticks to back of monitor, it makes the illusion you dont have any blb

I was planning to try the BLD fix that had you straighten out the metal frame as that is the "cure" and not a workaround fix for the BLB like the tape or padding method.

Here is a screen cap of my CRU settings for the 110hz. The current QX 2710 I have, I purchased in November of last year. It's a glossy Dual Link DVI only one.

oh when you said "stable for a few weeks" in the previous post you made it sound like you've only had the monitor for a few weeks, we have the same monitor, but I think you have the older panel that can do 120hz easily, but suffers from the dimming issue at that OC. whereas the newer panels, have trouble over 96hz...like mine.

Still going to try your timinings and see if that does anything.

Well 110hz doesnt work.
I have found my pixel clock max of 399-401hz anything over that gives me the purple mist. With your timings I get 430hz pixel clock, so no matter what I see purple mist on the left side of my screen. if only there was a way too reduce the pixel clock to <400 and keep 110hz.

but thanks to your timings I did get from 96hz to 103hz.

I've had the Qnix DVI monitor for years, but never overclocked until now because my GPU usually never sustained 60 FPS anyway. I'd just like to report that my new GTX 1070 successfully does 110 Hz with automatic timings and without driver patching. (EDIT: It turns out Toastyx's pixel clock patch was necessary to prevent the monitor from going crazy after reboot.) I didn't try 120 Hz.

Thanks for the guide!

I have a GTX 1080 and was able to oc to 96hz, however upon restart, I get a black screen. I have found my hard limit to be 80hz without getting the Blackscreenofdeath upon wake. I used the patch patch for 368.25 and tried CRU but it didn't create a new res choice. I ended up making the custom resolution in NVCP. This is a qnix 2710 with d-dvi. My previous card was AMD and it OC'd the same monitor to 96hz no problem. Any ideas?
