Once you get the back cover of the monitor off (the front black bezel actually stays attached to the LCD, this is normal). Just carefully disconnect the wiring - DO NOT forcefully remove the back panel, there are about 3-4 cables that can easily be disconnected from the system board of the monitor. . And there's a few sensitive ribbon cables that are in there too..Basically, I do not recommend doing this at all.
. If you decide to do it and mount it back on the monitor stand, there is literally nothing holding the actual LCD panel to the monitor stand except for aluminum tape.. They taped the system board housing to the back of the LCD.. that's it.. Tape. Your LCD could very well fall off the stand and crash onto your desk further ruining your day after the unsettling feeling of taking apart your PG279Q already felt like a bad idea.
I believe you also lose the LED lighting of the ring/ROG logo while you have the back panel off since you remove the contacts that send power to the base. You don't break any seals or warranty stuff after you remove the back cover though that I could see.. There's no way Asus would know you opened it up unless you sloppily put everything and the cabling together, I suppose.Edited by Diversion - 2/10/16 at 3:43pm
