Thanks mate. I bought it second hand and the original owner had it for about a year apparently. It OC's to 120hz (gf is bringing her DSLR home from work tonight so not sure yet if it does this with frame skipping), so I'm inclined to say it's one from the older set.

I'm pretty happy with the colours at the moment apart from whites having a slight yellow tint which I'd like to correct. I'm AMD so would the best way to do this be to apply your profile and then use CCC to tweak? Or would you recommend trying a different profile altogether? I've settled at 110hz.

Looking forward to having a play around with Color Sustainer, thanks again.

Yep, good chance it's an older panel.

My monitor has a slight yellow tint as well, very slight, at 60Hz. My profiles might then be very suitable for your monitor. At 110Hz, have you noticed the colors get darker and the top right corner dim? If so, you definitely have an older panel.

I have settled at 110Hz as well. My monitor does ~115Hz with the stock cable and 117Hz with a thick, 3-foot cable, although I just run it at 110Hz as the gamma shift and uniformity issues get pretty exaggerated at 117Hz for a negligible 7Hz increase.

If you're interested in trying out a few profiles, go to the OCN Qnix / X-Star club where you'll find ~30 profiles / collections. I'm almost certain most of them were made for the older panel, but you might find some profiles made for the newer panel.

I hope you enjoy using Color Sustainer.

I know with mine going past 100hz dims the top right, by 110 it starts to flicker with weird lines through it. I keep it at 96 now. If only we could get this panel, at this price point, in a thinner/better looking bezel.

Probably the Crossover 2795QHD.

Overclockable but mileage may vary. Big thread on it at OCN.

Qnix no longer the same sold 2 years ago. Panel lottery, higher incidence of PWM, poorer build quality.
