That would be a mod worth posting lol

On a serious note i was thinking about something like opening the power brick and putting heat sync material on whatever is causing all the heat. Could even cut a square out the top and have the heat sync protrude out the top slightly. All-in-all it is not worth the trouble, put it on a wire rack or shelf and let it be hot(like we do on thousands of retail shops with their Cisco router power adapters)

Or just point a fan at it for a few minutes every hour or so.

Didn't know you could get a 27 inch monitor for so cheap, I love gaming on PC. I'll have to look into this

I got my Qnix monitor today, it looks pretty bad ass, I haven't been able to try it out yet because I gotta get a new video card yet. Stand is a little wobbly and it doesn't tilt forward much but that's ok I hope to get everything running soon! thumb.gif

Both my Qnix are a touch different, one goes to complete darkness, the other not.

This should be sufficient but one could always heat bind an old CPU cooler to it LOL.

They can ship with different 'power bricks', some warmer than others, 1 warmer (warm but not hot) than the other which is not that warm.

My 18.4" laptop brick can v run hot but been using it for a while with no ill effects

Surely thats more dangerous + hassle ?

I have a couple adapters from random laptop chargers that I have and was wondering if it would be okay to use any of them (probably not) but I would like to make sure in case.




You could always watercool your PSU. Especially if you already have a loop.

Hello everyone,
After many days of reading this massive thread I finally pulled the trigger on 3 X-Star monitors from dream-seller perfect pixel & matte.
Ordered on Friday evening and arrived Monday, impressive shipping speed.

The monitors was indeed perfect, no dead pixel with minimal backlight bleeding. There was a note inside each box indicating that they had
checked the screen for defects.

I've loaded the 60hz icc profile that someone had posted in this thread, outside of that, are there any other calibration to be done?

Next up, will be painting the bezel matte and taking off that hideous nubbing.

So ive had my QX2710 for two days now.

The back light bleed is horrible, and the tape method didn't fix it.

I have also just noticed my Firefox Google search box is burnt into the screen, when I close it down I can see it on the desktop background image...

So far not happy at all.
