So far not happy at all.

You have been running at 120 then? Regardless, that apparent burn in should not be permanent. And if the taping had no effect then you must not have done it right/in the correct spots. You physically removed, straightened and taped underneath the uncolored metal frame?

I also noticed it's now been 2.5 days since anyone posted in the 'other thread'. Keep it up! wink.gif

Yes i removed the metal frame down to the bare led panel, and taped onto the outer edges of the glass and wrapped it around on a right angle,
is there a good detailed guide i can look at?

Yea I was under the assumption that the tape mod was not a sure bet for guaranteed correction.

Also how did you get to 120hz? CRU? NVCP? When i immediately got my panel i just used the NVCP to overclock to 120hz and i was getting burn in. Afterwards having trouble getting games to use the 120hz refresh i used CRU to get to 120hz. Still getting burn in and some light shift(judder) i tried LCD reduced. After this i never saw burn in again and rarely saw light shift. I then went on to adjust the panel further to not only overclock higher but better uniformity by adjusting the CRU timing settings manually. Now i have no problems at all. Backlight bleed for me was fixed by the tape fix so another look might be worth while.

EDIT: If you have been running at 60hz and getting burn-in i would go for a refund or replacement.

Damn. Yeah I guess it is not a 'sure thing' but, frankly, the bleed situation seems to be a pretty obvious case of "cause and effect" where people can generally notice warps and such in the frame where the light bleeds through the most.

Good tip re. CRU + LCD Reduced possibly helping avoid image retention.

Bleeds can be caused for different reasons. The tape mod only fixes light bleed. Where the lights are leaked through the side.

Other bleeds are caused by the metal frame itself. The metal frame needs to be bent/reformed. This has nothing to do with tape as it is the metal frame that is pushing against the LCD to create the light bleeds.

Others are created from the disformed LCD itself and will most likely not be fixable. In other words it is the layers in the LCD panel itself that is uneven and unless you intend to take away multiple layers in hopes to fix it... (i don't recommend this) it won't fix the bleed.

Most bleeds are fixed by either the tape mod or the bending of the frames though.

Has anyone figured out how to use HDMI with these monitors at Native Res? My X Star only has a DVI port. I'm wondering if someone found some sort of adapter that would work for HD 4600(onboard for i5 4670k)

You need an active HDMI->DVI-D connector. These are expensive ($100) and don't OC as well as the alternative.

As someone said earlier, at that price you may as well get yourself a new GPU. I would definitely recommend this as you only have integrated graphics right now, even a cheap GPU should be a big improvement - e.g. a HD5450.

And if you can't fit one in your case you could buy a decent case and this GPU for less than the $100 for the adapter.

If I push down on the panel around 4 inches to the left of the major bleed, it goes away.

I might need to spend more time taking it apart and see if I can bend it, the light bleed is just a killer for me, I cant not see it now, I have stuck pixels but they don't even bother me because the screen is so high res, you have to be right up close to see them and on a white screen.
