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 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.

I loosened mine, not sure if it made a difference but i think the taskbar is more visible now. My BLB is not visible under normal circumstances so that's not an issue.

Cool. I definitely notice a difference there. Middle icons were almost cut off and now there is about an eighth of an inch of taskbar visible below them as on the sides.

Really need a pretty powerful machine for that res at those frames though.

Mine's pretty much fully vibrant and colorful, but the top right area definitely becomes a little less so and a scrap dimmer, not anything I even notice while gaming (on the desktop I can tell if I'm staring at a color block to compare, but I just switch it to 96hz for desktop use anyway since 120 is hardly needed there and I want the uniformity). I just put the brightness up a few notches and it looks great still (from 96hz going to 120hz).

Hm, I thought it was my imagination originally but I have the same issue I think. The left and right are great on the bottom but in the middle it is definitely a tidbit beneath the bezel (maybe 2-4 pixels at most). So you just popped open the monitor and loosened the two screws towards the middle of the frame (no panel removal/etc. needed)? How big are the screws (normal phillips, notebook-sized small, etc.)? It doesn't particularly bother me other than that I know it's there eek.gif .

Just took off the base, laid the screen down on a towel and unscrewed them all the way out. Standard phillips about medium-sized though the screwdriver itself can't be too thick in order to spin in there.

You won't be able to fix it properly w/o the tape mod though. It's easy enough and I highly recommend it.

Wait... so you do or don't need to remove the bezel if you're doing just the unscrewing? It honestly doesn't bother me very much at all and I never notice it unless I remember it's there and purposefully look for it. I don't want to take any risk of damaging the panel considering mine's a nice 120hz oc'er, for something this minor. I'll probably get tempted though and do it anyway soonish...

That depends on what you are trying to fix exactly (and also everyones issues be it bleed or whatever aren't caused by the exact same thing). Yes this is not the end-all fix for bleed but it did lessen my two bright spots bottom middle. It also definitely helps if you notice the lower part of the screen is cut off from view more in the middle than the sides.

And they are all pretty much "nice 120Hz overclockers", for the record.

Got mine. Bleeds all around. Is it normal for it to be so bowed? When I put something flat flush along the center there's a half centimeter gap on either side. This housing is a joke.
