    It is here! Sitting in front of the new screen writing this.

    Have some blacklight bleed, but none too bad. No dead pixel found (yet).

    Stand is really wobbly, but can survive.

    Colors are great! Very crisp! Reflections are quite strong. Very good for my place (dark, no windows in the back) otherwise might be tough.
    96hz running like a charm. But my 670 is struggling to reach 96fps+ in WOW. :D

    Nice, welcome to the club :)

    If you were interested, you could always try to get rid of the bleed by removing amd repositioning the bezel.. may help.

    As mentioned above, it definitely improved the capabilities of the monitor as before if I went to 110 with stock cable, there were green lines everywhere. With the new cable, there were no lines, but found that there was some image retention.

    I haven't tried to fine tune it honestly as I've been happy with 100hz, but I may try to play around with it some more. Between the new monitor, new 970 sli and games, I find I'm all over the place once I get on my rig haha

    thinking of buying 3 Qnix QX2710 monitors to replace my current 24inch 1080p monitors, just wondering how well they would run on my system

    specs
    asus iv black edition
    i7 4930
    16gb 2400mhz
    7990 6gb
    1000w psu


    or would i need more powerful gpu to achieve decent framerates with been 3x 1080 resolution

    More GPU power needed for 100hz/100fps+ on all 3 monitors. 3 Titan blacks, deffo need 6GB or more, 980's 4GB is not enough on 256bit bus. Wont be smooth. Wait for GM200 and buy 3 of these and your good for 3 screens at 100hz/fps+

    Thinking of picking up one of the Qnix screens in the new year, any suggestions or recommendations? I'm looking for something with DVI-D, Display Port and HDMI but little unsure.

    I made the decision to upgrade from a 1080p to a Qnix 1440p to fully take advantage of my new GTX 970. I spent the last few hours reading up on the do's and the don't. I won't be getting the SE or True10 version, instead I'm looking for the "more" overclockable version. I also prefer a glossy display. Before I order, I just wanted to post the ebay and get it checked in case I have missed anything.

    http://www.ebay.com/itm/QNIX-QX2710...6284?pt=Computer_Monitors&hash=item1e9336ba5c

    Do you guys think the price is reasonable? I found another link with Pixel Perfect that is a bit more expensive but I doubt this would make any real difference.

    Thanks.

    This is a good one. Pixel Perfect is generally a waste of money. One bright user in here, AlanM, has made a good point that if Pixel Perfect is doing what it's supposed to do, as in having the sellers filter the panels to see which ones have less dead / stuck pixels than others, other faults are likely to come bundled if these panels have been graded as lower than A+ and have made it to second-grade displays (although I doubt these panels aren't every bit as good as their branded equivalents) for particular reasons (one of which is dead / stuck pixels). Remember, monitor panels are made in batches, and some as tested to determine the grade of the batch. Many of the panels might be as good as A+ batches, and some panels in an A+ batch might be defective, so it depends.

    That is IF the Pixel Perfect policy is good. accessorieswhole's was good last time I checked. They knew the difference between dead and stuck pixels. Most other sellers allow up to a certain number of "bright" and "dark" pixels, and some fail to distinguish stuck pixels (can be probably fixed using an RGB flashing tool) from dead pixels (dead, hence cannot be fixed).

    Glossy is good, as long as you know that it's glossy and will cause reflections if you have it in a brightly lit room / in front of a source of incident light (sun, window, artificial light). It will appear clearer and more vibrant than a matte display, although the semi-glossy matte coatings are pretty good on the Qnix as far as matte coatings go. The monitor takes on a glassy look from the sides.

    ok i have been reading here and i am very confused on where to start when it comes to overclocking my monitor. I also would like to know how to change color profiles and how to know which ones are good for my monitor and my OC.

    Download CRU from google (Custom Resolution Utility) + the ati pixel clock patcher which will be in the same link/topic.

    Then download yasamokas color profiler/keeper.

    Deathchild I downloaded CRU and did the patcher ... I did not touch any number but i set it to 96 hz but i do not know how to set the res after i make the profile and I have no clue even after reading what the other numbers do ... I am at a loss.

    ok restarted went to res options in windows went to advanced and chose the hz... 96 is stable and 100 is stable ... 110 is a no and 120 even worse.

    so 100 it is for this monitor unless the timings need to be adjusted which i have no idea what im toying with ...

    any suggested timings?

    You just need to try to lower them. Start with lowering 4 each for example, then reboot, if doesn't display, then you can try 2 instead and start lowering each timing 1 by 1, by 2-4. That's how I roughly did it until I got those timings. With a few you hit walls sooner.

    Here's how it looks for me for example, I outlined the timings that I've lowered.

    you need to tighten timings to achieve lower pixel clock when overclocking. if you didn't tighten timings your pixel clock would be too high and you could suffer artifacting and otherwise unstable overclocks. Most of the time you'll be ok just using LCD - Reduced timings.

    In Layman's terms ^

    I'd settle for 96hz, seeing as it's a multiple of 24. or go all out for 120
