Yeah something like that is fine. For me, 2ft would be too short, but it's up to you to figure out how long the cable needs to be.

I should probably also mention a few things. On the box that it came in, it says "12ms" and "Made in China". Now we know why the build quality sucks. The panel also sits just slightly lower than it should, as others have mentioned. The bezel is identical to that of the Monoprice, except for the branding.

Yep it was the port/cable in that that damn thing really needs to be screwed in well and tight, at least on mine (there is no looseness of the port itself in the housing or anything like that). Which is the reason why the other cable won't work at all on this thing--it cant screw in at all. Most displays work fine still; not this one.

So be aware of that on any new ones you may buy. Up until today I had been running it with just the top of the two on the stock cable screwed in iirc; display cables can be such a ***** and one of the things I hate most working IT. Glad this one not on bottom.

I didn't realize people were replacing the entire power brick. I always see people complaining about buzzing power bricks or faulty power bricks. Didn't realize you could just replace them. Lol. People shouldn't be *****ing then.
You could use any 12V 5A power brick and a Monoprice or Tripp Lite DVI-D cable.

Seriously though, I don't recommend using a different power brick than the one supplied with the monitor. Also, it seems like the included DVI cable works better for most people, so I wouldn't swap that either unless something is wrong with it. What you want is a generic PC power cord, the same kind that comes with any power supply. Check out this page: http://www.monoprice.com/products/subdepartment.asp?c_id=102&cp_id=10228

The length is up to you, but don't get excessive length if you don't need to. I recommend 16AWG just in case. That number relates to the thickness and it is a gauge measure, meaning the cables are thicker the lower you go on that number.
But other power bricks work just fine and it's useful in case the supplied one goes out. Heck some people had their supplied ones failed on them and others came in dead on arrival. It also seems safer as well.

In some cases a better DVI-D cable allows people to do 120hz easier than the supplied DVI-D cable that came with the monitor. I had green lines on mine when I did 120hz with the supplied DVI-D cable, but I heard someone had the same thing and then switched their cable with a different one and that solved the problem for them.

So can tweaking the values in CRU (or trying LCD -Reduced and such) which must fine-tune and lessen noise in the signal which stands to reason a higher quality cable would too.

I have a question, i have minor backlight bleed at the very middle top of my screen but i'm wondering if the success rate of that backlight bleed fix is 100% successful or not. Is there also a chance that it might create more backlight bleed if not done right?

I think when i press on the bezel at the top the backlight bleed dissipates a bit, that's something i can fix by relieving or adding pressure to the bezel? If i do decide to disassemble it, it's going to be a HUGE pain in the ass as my monitor is already wall mounted so i would have to take off the wall mount and what not to do this haha.

Your first or second? The price will most likely increase by then.

Buy now while prices are right before they increase in price and or become non overclock-able.

So you got it working or you didn't get it working?

Yeah the supplied DVI cable would only screw in at the top for me also.

I'm just going to say it again for emphasis: "Made in China".
