2gb is not a problem, 670s just lack the raw grunt of a 7970.
And the fact my 670s don't overclock and my old 7970 could do 1380mhz on the core it wasn't really a far comparison to begin with lol.

I'll probably be all over the 8970s whenever they come out though. Probably give the 780 a miss unless they get a fair bit cheaper.

edit: Holy ****! It censored the **** out of L.M.F.A.O hahaha... what a bunch of ****s, censor this!
who censored you?

Do any of you know of a simply software that will flip the monitors brightness to different settings? I have the Qnix at 12 clicks up from the lowest brightness. That's fine during the day, but I'd like to drop it down to 7 clicks during the night and it's tedious having to manually hit the button everyday, I used to use F.lux, but that software removes your custom icc profile so that's a no go.

Stop being lazy and press the button.

Have you done it in yours?

Yes 670 sli 1300Mhz. With 1440p I can run no AA or 2XAA minimum and whilst I don't get a constant 120Hz unless I drop down the image quality (which I'm not willing to do as there is no point) The games I play maxed stay above 60FPS and all depend on scenario and scaling.

Did you guys completely removed the 2 screws at the bottom? Or did you just loosened them?

Do you mean to open the display? If so, there's four screws/

No i mean like this guy did. Sounds like he completely removed the screws. But wouldn't that have impact on the display's stability?

I also have the taskbar issue.

I also have the taskbar issue.

been wondering about that however those screws arent doing anything in reality
I doubt it'd help though. Majority of light bleeding is caused by the metal frame around the panel.

Just ordered a Qnix QX2710, should be here this week, I think I'm going to use an after market mount and wondering the stock stand is easy to take off and what size screws to use.

Is there any know issues I should be aware of ? I will be running this monitor with a GTX 780, so I'm hoping the OCing will be decent.

And the brightness did not really bother me that much...thumbsupsmiley.png

Really? Not bad for a 7950 even at High...though I guess that is no AA too. I definitely require some AA even with this pixel density. MSAA for that matter.

That would be the profanity filter. I hate profanity filters though I guess I see why in place; could be kids here. TPU does not have one, for the record, and most do not abuse. It's nice to be able to drop an f-bomb when it's warranted IMO.

Yeah it's just that the bezel is way too tight against the panel with the two middle screws in (lifts up onto the screen more in the middle than the edges). So removing them did not actually move the panel in any way but it did make the lower part of the taskbar more visible as the bezel is extended outwards away from the screen a slight bit now (can see the top of the frame if I peek down in there now).

I did completely remove them; may try just loose. My bleed not gone now but the two spots on bottom around the logo less bright and don't stretch as high. I think I will try taking the other two out as well.

Start by checking all the info in the first post of this thread. You will also find a link to a video series that shows you how to take it all apart. Removing the stand more difficult and involved that most monitors but certainly can be done.
