Here's My ICC profile if you want to try it, just know that every monitor is different.
XG2401 #1 2016-03-21.icm

As far as settings:
viewmode; standard

contrast; 66
brightness; 25(close to 120cd/m2, you can raise this if you want)

user color; r99 g99 b96

Sharpness; 100

response time; advanced
input lag; ultra fast
black stabilization; 5
advanced dcr; 0

And A Higher gamma calibration, useful for dark rooms.

No, this monitor shouldn't appear too washed out or yellow, at least compared to the srgb standard. It's possible your old monitor had a boosted gamma, making the image appear deeper and more saturated.

Try setting the user color to all 100 and use this new ICC profile(which I've calibrated to 2.4γ), that should make it closer to what you are used to.
XG2401 #1 2016-10-25 120cdm² D6500 2.4.icm

As far as the back light bleed, that looks about the same as my monitor, and it isn't too noticeable in a well lit room. Image (Click to show)
To be fair, I don't think there are any 144hz TN panels that are free of back light bleed.

Wow I exchanged my monitor no more yellow light at the corner of my screen , and used your new ICC profile and my monitor become really good, and the color is beautiful now thanks a lot kind sir.

Yes my old monitor used photo mode so the color is vibrant, and you are right again my room is kinda dark,how do you know all of this are you some kind of magician

Might have been a bad one, it happens sometimes. Both the one I returned and the one I have now have fantastic colors for a TN display, and out of the box they were good too.

Well out of the color of my monitor is bad, but after using user qwertymac93 new calibration it's really great. It's not expensive too(I got it for 300$) the IPS 144hz available in my country is MG279Q(715$). When comparing my XG2401 with my IPS phone the color difference isn't that much anyway. If you can save a bit more and try Samsung CFG70

I just got a XG2701. Is it the exact same? Sorry I am new and I am coming from an Asus VN279 AMVA+ monitor. The Asus had a saturation setting and this one does not, so I felt I have to mess with Digital Vibrance (GTX 1080.) This is how mine is set up currently, but not sure if I am happy yet:

There is a XG2701 Series ICC profile in Windows 10 already.
Contrast: 69
Brightness: 70
Color: User Color, R:100 G:90 B:100
Sharpness: 75
Blue Light Filter: 83
Response Time: Advanced
Low Input Lag; Ultra Fast
Black Stabilization: 4
Advanced DCR: 0
Viewmode is Standard

Nvidia Digital Vibrance set to 70

I am completely new to this site and I am looking for suggestions.

I am fairly sure the only difference between the 2701 and 2401 is screen size.

Here are the settings I'm using if you are interested:

Contrast: 65
Brightness: 35
Color: User Color, R:97 G:97 B:100
Sharpness: 100
Blue Light Filter: 80
Response Time: Advanced
Low Input Lag; Ultra Fast
Black Stabilization: 5
Advanced DCR: 0

No adjustments made in AMD's control panel. One thing I noticed is that for the first half hour the monitor is on, the colors do look a bit washed but eventually it settles and colors look great even when compared to my old Samsung Syncmaster.
