Tried that and it didnt help at all. Something is pressing against the monitor thats for sure. If I touch the very bottom of the frame then I can see the crystals get all wavy in the monitor an inch and a half above where I am touching right in the BLB area. So I just have to open the frame up and fix whatever it is. And at the same time will be removing the remaining part of the stand sticking down that I am not using.

I normally have a black wallpaper to show it, but always wondered how you get it like that.

I just made a blank black image in MS Paint and then opened it as a slideshow in the Windows image viewer. The reply above this is probably an easier way to do it if you already have the link handy.



Also, upon closer inspection I have found that I have 1 single stuck pixel on green. But it is in the very bottom left corner and is not noticeable on anything but a flat black background in that area and only if I am actively looking for it. So Im still plenty happy with the monitor.

I think by "frame" here you mean the front bezel piece. When we refer to the "frame" it's an actual thin metal rectangle piece that is installed on the panel itself and is itself what you need to "fix" by removing and straightening it and/or applying tape to it's underside (so against the panel). It is probably too tight against the panel where your spots are. Or bent.

folks iv been using the catleap driver for over clocking and its working brilliantly but I see nvidia have a new driver out so can I install the new nvidia driver without worrying about my overclocking?

I believe Nvidia lets you overclock without unlocking up to a certain point, but artificially capped the pixel clock on DVI to 330 MHz. I believe you need to go above this to get to 120Hz+ so you will need to run the driver unlocker/patcher if you wish to go above the 100Hz range of things.

I ordered mine from Green Sum and had to pay $57 Canadian for duty because they didn't mark the package a gift. I'll post photos this evening.


UPDATE:

Pre-Backlight Bleed Fix:


Post Backlight Bleed Fix:


FOLLOW THIS GUIDE FOR BLB! Comprehensive, step by step, and totally f'ing awesome! Please update post #1 with these videos. Thank you David Thomson!
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=huVFLCSwQzY&list=PLnVkA6ZcoQv5piavGXZDJv3Wj2E4MT_iE

I followed Davids instructions until step 13. At that point I used standard electrical tape and it didn't make any difference. I was very concerned at first but I thought I should connect the monitor with the metal LCD bezel removed. Without the metal frame attached to the panel the BLB was reduced significantly. There was still some BLB but I suspected that was due to the panel sitting in the display housing without proper support. By proper support I mean the floating metal rails. Without those rails and metal frame the panel will warp slightly which looks like BLB. At this point I concluded that the metal frame was the problem like some people in this thread suggested.

Now the real question isn't "where do I put tape"? The best way I found to resolve this was first to slowly bend the metal frame with my hands so it was as flat as possible. I put it on a table and kept adjusting until only the ends were slightly elevated, damn near flat. At that point I reattached the metal frame and tested again, the BLB was back but not as pronounced. I removed the metal frame from the panel AGAIN. This time I twisted the top and bottom of the metal bezel up and away from the edges of the viewable screen area. I suspected that the inside edges of the metal frame were too concave and were pushing down on the sides of the display, causing BLB. Adding tape didn't help because it does nothing to alleviate pressure. By twisting the bezel in the opposite direction, making the frame slightly convex in the areas with BLB (Only the top and bottom), but maintaining the perfectly flat stature of the frame I was able to get incredible results.

I hope that the frame adjustment instructions above make sense, I would have made a video but I honestly didn't think it would work. This took me over 3 hours because every time I made a change I would reconnect the monitor to test. The problem is that you don't know if it really was a success until both the metal frame and the rails are attached.

With the provided cable I can do 120hz with no artifacts. The problem now is where do I get a 25 foot ultra high quality dual link dvi cable?

I hope this helps some people. Thanks again to David Thomson for the wonderful tear down video.

Updated with my success... the manufacturer needs to work on these metal frames! lol

Nice work and thanks for the info.

Yeah I would say "ah they don't care" and thats one reason they are so cheap but they definitely could do a better job cause apparently some IPS model from another manufacturer uses this same bezel and does not have these issues.

I suspect the PLS panel may be more sensitive to the uneven metal frame than an IPS would.

That's as good as pixel perfect... you have to open up to fix blb
