I am very lucky with the monitor I got considering my disability.. Now if I could only get the dvi screws in lol.. I am gonna order another cable from monoprice right now. smile.gif

My Qnix just came in yesterday, and it's pretty good shape, some moderate BLB on the upper right hand corner that I'm too scared to try to take the monitor apart to fix. The bigger issue I'm having is when trying to overclock it. I have a GTX 780, and whenever I apply the nvidia patch listed in the first post of the thread, my computer seems to just stop recognizing my graphics card, as upon reboot my system forces my resolution to 1920x1200 with no option to go higher, and also gives me a "no nvidia card installed" error when I try to open the nvidia settings. Has anyone encountered this?

What is the purpose of this Nvidia patch I keep reading about? When I OC'd my monitor all I did was go into the nvidia control panel and set a custom resolution. It tests it real quick and you're good to go.

I didn't use any patches...I just tried NVCP and it worked right off the bat, I also gave Evgas pixel clock thing a go and it works too.

The tape method will only work for certain types of BLB. For instance there is a leak between the metal frame and the actual light. Other types of bleed are caused by improper/faulty layering of the panel itself and will not be cured by the tape method.

I hope this is not the case!

people seriously need to relax with the backlight bleed thing. IMO it has to be really bad before you notice it while actually using the pc. Who cares if you can see it when you turn all room lighting off and have a totally dark image on the screen. IMO it´s just OCD-stuff and it will just drive you mad focusing on it and checking to much for it.

anyone?

I haven't found a way yet.. You can try some of the 120hz custom profiles on the first page. But for me I just use it for gaming ad I am at 60hz the rest of the time for better colors..It's funny how ur post before this one you told people to ease off the BLB whining then you post how you monitor that's not suppose to do 120hz gets dark when it does it.. smile.gif
