Fixed the problem - not sure how exactly, but it works now! No backlight bleed to speak of.

The cable is pretty long, it reaches from my monitor on my desk to the floor pretty easily.

Exactly what happened to me. I even checked that wires were securely fastened prior to unpluggin/replugging them in to see if I could verify something WAS loose, nothing was. I personally am guessing that the wire-packs aren't the greatest and me moving them around caused them to not carry the high-bandwidth signal with integrity, causing the issue. All I really did was re-position stuff, ensure it was all plugged in inside as expected, and then turned it on while open.

I've since reassembled the whole thing, nothing is caused by the bezel for me. I have plenty to convey, but not a lot of time right now. A couple really important ones:

My cloudiness is caused by high refresh rates. It came back after I set 120Hz. I have thoughts on why for later.
I can seem to affect what we're calling backlight bleed with my finger on my screen. I can make the yellow bottom one appear, and I can also correct it. It seems too easy to affect it, like it's liquid that's moving around easily and that I am pushing with my finger (I use flat edge between knuckles as fingertip puts too much pressure in one spot). I know LCD stands for LIQUID crystal display, so I don't know how some screens like my Pro IPS don't seem affected by tactile pressure and this seems much more so.

I know I have some comments to respond to, along with some private messages. I hope to have some time later.

Upon inspection no dead/stuck pixels(phew) and very minor backlight bleeding that is on the bottom left that is not even noticeably unless the screen is black. Bezel to panel fit is tight in all corners expect for the top right which has some play in it but nothing major. The panel sits centered in the bezel though which I heard some people having problems with the panel sitting too low. The base is surprisingly sturdy and does not wobble at all for me. DVI cable is short but pretty thick, I have a longer one on the way.

Monitor runs cool and and has no noticeably buzzing/hissing. AC adapter runs warm but does not get too hot. OSD buttons work but I have not really tickered with them expect for brightness. I have noticed, unless its me and not the monitor, that the left side has a slightly warmer color temp than the right. I may try some calibration profiles. I probably won't overclock for 30 days just in case anything happens to the monitor I can still contact bigclothcraft.

Your logic might be flawed here. No one is ever going to know if you overclock unless you explicitly tell them (this goes for CPUs and GPUs as well), so if anything I would overclock within the 30 days as a sort of "stress test" to make sure your monitor can overclock at all. If you wait the 30 days to overclock and then something goes wrong once you do, you might be out of luck (although I thought that the sellers had a 1 year warranty on all these panels.)

Hey dascth which color profile do you recommend for a glossy QX2710? There's so many of them, I'm just looking for the most accurate calibration for 60hz and 120hz.

sry to butt in, but color calibration seems to be specific per panel. There has been much reported variance on what looks good on the monitor it was calibrated on, and then looks off on others. Best advice is to just put 20 minutes aside, download all calibration profiles and test them. There aren't that many, maybe like 8 total?

Okay I'll do that then. I assumed that since most of us have the same monitors, it works for everyone. Thanks for your help smile.gif

Even worse news, after mucking around inside my monitor two nights ago, my calibration now doesn't fit (perfectly) for me. I imagine calibrations will vary just as much as back light behavior varies.

How do you actually fix this kind of bleeding? At the bottom middle. mad.gif

Thanks to any good people who are willing to help.

I used the top edge of my finger between the two knuckles, swiping across the area as though I was trying to spread it out. Imagine it's butter. That's how I can make it appear/disappear. Mine's really finicky but I can get it to look ok and then I just don't touch it. May help to lay it on it's back while you do it, just don't press hard. If it isn't making any difference, then maybe stop and try some other idea.
