To completely remove the metal frame I think you have to unplug everything, because there's a metal plate screwed to the back of the panel that overlaps the metal frame on the top. All I did was unlatch the metal frame on the bottom and sides and just lifted it up on the bottom enough to put tape on the bottom.

Those are not stickers lol. That's the original bezel. I put painters tape over the logo and button labels when I spray painted the bezel. Thinking back, I should have just painted over the logo, too. I plan on getting a vesa mount stand later on so I didn't bother painting the stand.

Ordered a QNIX QX2710 LED Evolution OC Thursday from www.overclockmonitor.com. Got it today Monday. Patched it and sat it to 120hz, which worked. No dead pixels or bad blacklight bleeding.
I can really say im pleasantly satisfied with it.

After playing around with colors in Nvidia control panel i cant get it look good. Its very bland coloring than my samsung syncmaster s23a700d.
Is there some more features i can play with other than Nvidia control panel?

Could you explain how did you get this brushed alluminium appearance?
It reminds me my EliteBook:

In my case, I am using a x-rite calibration device so I did calibrations for each setting and is great. thumb.gif

Sure I will do that tonight. They were created in a dark environment but I did not use the Ambien light option to do the readings.

Expecting my monitor here from UPS any minute gonna see how high I can oc hoping for 96 atleast, probably won't use 120 constantly as I hear it screws the colors pretty good.

Hey guys, noticed in the FAQ that for 120hz with one of these monitors you would need to use 2 crossfire bridges. I have 2 7870's in crossfire and only have the option for one crossfire bridge between each card. Will there be any issues or can someone confirm it is working? Will still probably pull the trigger on one of these regardless as 1440p seems the way to go. smile.gif
