post #1731 of 25862
Here is a mini update on opening the panel up.
I was able to fix my backlight bleed completely and it was really bad. I put a wad of electrical tap under the panel in one corner (bottom left) and the reduced the bleeding quite a bit.

I tuned the panel on while it was open this help me identify where the panel was not straight. Pushing on the monitor before while it was in the case didn't do anything but while it was open and I lifted one corner and noticed most the bleeding from the two spots on the middle bottom edge where gone when I lifted that corner. So adding a shim in that corner got rid of most the light.

I also went all the way around the whole panel at taped the edges of seam where matte meets the metal bezel. I need ever edge and every side I noticed in places that seem to have no bleeding this still helped. So I just keep taping. I taped it down while the monitor was on so I would be sure I wasn't taping over and pixels but I put tape on the screen as close as I count get to pixels without covering them. Then I ran my finger nail over the tape to make it stick in the seam. By the way the electrical tape I bought was really sticky much better than anything I ever seen before. It was 3M professional grade. I think if it was regular tape it would have came out as good because I know other tape I used before wouldn't stick that well in a small seem like that.

The MonoPrice mount didn't fit out of box. I had to go to the hardware store and buy eight #6 washers to use as a space for the screws to fit the mount correctly. The MonoPrice mount is huge and solid. Take up alot of desk space in front of the monitor.

I'm very happy how it turned out with tape mode. The screen was one of the worse bleeders but now super clean. (Ill try to get pictures later when it's dark)

One odd thing though monitor is not clocking as high now. I have no idea why. But getting some random lines now at 120hz now after opening the panel. With all these mods I never disconnected any connectors at all. Just lifted the panel to take off the old mount and left all internal connectors plugged in ( with power off, obviously ) then did some of the taping later with it powered on. Put the bezel back on, and now it doesn't overclock as high, weird.

I guess that wasn't a mini update.

I'm worried sick. The brainless oaf from the freight forwarding service that ordered my monitor got his own company's address wrong in my parcel. He missed the street number. It hasn't arrived yet, but who knows if DHL is going to deliver this without delay or need of assistance.

To make matters worse, surely enough Memorial Day is coming. Why are these American holidays always in the way for me? I need this airboxed out of the US by Friday if not I'll cry.

Hello all, I just made this account to determine if this amount of backlight bleed is normal. My monitor came in today and I see two very bad bleed spots on the bottom with one having a yellow tint








post #1737 of 25862
I am truly impressed with my monitor. I have no bleeding and zero dead pixels, I am amazed with my luck. OCed to 96hz, tomorrow will try 120hz but maybe will stay at 96hz. Don't want to be constantly changing it and I gathered that keeping at 120hz is not safe, am I wrong? 96 frames per second seems good enough, right?

Green-Sum. I just tried 120Hz and it works perfectly!!! Very very very impressed. thumb.gif

Can I keep it or should reduce it to 96Hz? Which color profile should I use? I used this one:

120 Hz, 120cd/m2 brightness (12 "clicks" up from min brightness), matte monitor
QX2710 2013-04-20 D6500 neutral 2.2 HQ-MQ XYZLUT+MTX EDID-OFF 120Hz w_perceptual gamut mapping.zip 121k .zip file

but it seems the white gets a bit "redish", is there any other 120Hz profile I can try, please?

Thanks
