I was hoping it was as simple as using the 24 AWG cable, looks like it might be just dependent on the monitor.

I wonder if its the actual chips on the board that are crapping out at higher refresh rates for some (lower binned parts?) or if it's wire/shielding or soldering joints. You might be able to "fix" one if it's the later.

Well, I have to note a minor problem with the cables compatibility with the monitors. I absolutely cannot tighten the screws on the DL-DVI cables onto monitor itself. It simply won't go in and I feel as if the MonoPrice cables are too big for the monitors holes so my DVI cables are basically just dangling in mid air and I'm praying they don't fall off. However, the ones that came with my Planar SA2311W fit perfectly.

I will test other DL-DVI cables on my monitors if you think that's necessary smile.gif

I'm starting to think it's the boards that are crapping out because my monitor becomes dark after OCING a bit. I guess we'll find out later why the monitors dim after being overclocked

Also, if you want me to do a comparison against my 120 Hz TN PLANAR SA2311W, let me know tongue.gif

hi,

i was wondering if anyone knows of a low profile video card that will support 2 dual-link dvi connections and 2 of the QNIX monitors? i see a lot of full height ones...

ty!

bill,

bill,

I don't think you will ever find a low profile card that can support 2 QNIX monitors without lag.......

I know this has been posted on overclock before but for those who did not see it and have not spent hundreds of dollars on a professional color calibrator.

This site has the best test for color calibration IF the predefined profiles do not work for you.

I believe the darkening of the image is directly related to the increased switching speeds of each pixel "window". If it takes a certain amount of time to open or close the window, then the more times you do it per second, the less time is left in each transition where it is fully open with light coming through. I don't believe you see much difference when changing between lower rates as the pixel transition time is such a smaller fraction of the total period.

This could all be BS but I've been thinking about this the past couple of days and it's the only thing I've come up with so far. It just reminded me of how the more you divide up a camera's image sensor into more pixels, the less surface area you have collecting light because so much more of it is the boundaries between pixels. In the monitor case it wouldn't be surface area, but time that is being divided up more.

Anyone else have thoughts on this?

I was more curious if you swapped the three cables around in a different arrangement and if the 120Hz abilities followed monitors or cables.

I have not tested it, but I will do so in the next hour or so and as for that theory you came up with. I really don't know much about cameras so I can't say. Maybe someone else has some insight on this smile.gif

Just ordered my QNIX QX2710 LED Evolution ll tonight (http://www.ebay.com/itm/321099912197?ssPageName=STRK:MEWNX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1439.l2649). Will post pictures, impressions, and such when it arrives thumb.gif

Gamma shift @ 120Hz is too much for my liking. I dropped down to 100Hz and it's much more 'normal' looking.

IMO these are not as well rounded as Catleap 2Bs, but given that these are readily available and can OC to 96Hz these are the next best thing.
