Not sure what step you're on. Take a picture.

Once you open the black enclosure, there is a metal frame that is held by little notches around the entire screen. You can just use a pick to lift it above the notch. There is another metal enclosure after that but I don't think that is removable.

So I know you need a DVI "Dual Link" cable, but does it really matter that it's DVI-D and not DVI-I? Everything I read on the net seems to suggest that DVI-I is compatible with DVI-D (but not the other way around). If you look at the pin holes, it makes sense since DVI-I Dual Link has more holes than DVI-D Dual Link.

The ebay listing for the QNIX 2710 specifically says DVI-I Dual Link not supported:

Thoughts? I have a GTX 260 that has two DVI-I Dual Link outputs, and I'm really hoping they're good enough.

I know others on here use them with DVI-I video cards and I just got my monitor today and it works fine with a dual link DVI-I input on the video card.

Alright, got the frame off. Taped it up and re-seated the panel. There are 2 very minor spots left that are only noticeable with completely black screen and the lights in the room off. I can live with that. Thanks for the help everyone.

The next thing to do will be to try and OC this thing. I am going to wait until I get my new video card before trying.

I am trying to decide between a EVGA Superclock ACX 780 and the same 770 and maybe the 4gb version. Too bad they are not available yet.

Just got a QNIX last week, though I haven't had time to play with it much. Quite happy with it, does 96Hz with ease, haven't tried higher. The only thing that annoys me is that the screen is noticeably yellower in the top half.

So:
- Anyone volunteering to write a more detailed guide to the tape-bleed fix?
- Any luck with reducing the yellow gradient that some of the screens suffer from?

It says that, but it works. I've done it on my older card.

dvi-d dual link cable. will work in a dvi-i dual link slot though
