Sorry I have been at a music festival at my school, sungod at ucsd. I haven't been keeping up with this thread but I will be going through the OP right now to check for those dead links

Can anyone confirm where to place the tape and how much to use? I just wanna know exactly how to do this so I don't screw up haha. The pictures in the OP didn't really explain the process all that well.

As far as using tape to fix panel play, look in the OP for an expandable section under "Monitor Fixes, Support, Help" titled "wntrsnowg mod to solve Panel Play and an off-center screen"
I think that through the pictures I've posted and text written, the location and amount of tape are explained very clearly. (the tape locations are circled in red, and it is stated to use 3 pieces of tape per site). Let me know if there is still anything that is confusing thumb.gif

I made a profile using ColorMunki @ 120hz, how does one extract the profile to be shared? Colors are A LOT more accurate after the calibration process.

Haha, yeah biggrin.gif... here's hoping you hit the 450mhz mark wink.gif.

C:\Windows\System32\spool\drivers\color is where they live

Yeah I made one with a ColorMunki too at 96Hz but it turned out too dark, at least once I had 'Use Windows display calibration' checked which you need for gamma adjustments per the profile. Do need to try again and play around some more; those units are supposed to be good for newer LED backlit LCDs like this as you can choose such (default is CCFL).

You should try the Asus one too from TFTCentral. Would be curious what you think.

I haven't had a too dark issue so far.

No, you won't be able to overclock that way.
See the lowest resolution that will work for you. Click here to see my current manual profile, it reaches 140 stable. It might vary on other displays though.

I don't have that sticker on my X-Star. Infact, there was no way of telling if my monitor has never been opened.

Well make sure you are doing this in Color Management or they are all too bright (gamma).

You will also need to enable the profiles gamma correction.

Go into the advanced tab. You need to select "use Windows display calibration" but it is greyed out initially.

Click "change system defaults" and a new window pops up which looks the same as the previous one

Click on "advanced" tab and you should be able to tick "use Windows display calibration" from there. You should see a change in the screens gamma as the corrections from the profile are loaded.

No no sticker. What is that pic of/from?
