There's not enough space between the PSU shroud and the side panel... there's pretty much only enough space for the side panel to slot in.
You can put it on the top of the PSU shroud but it wouldn't look very nice with the window placement.
You can get an idea of how narrow it is from this pic...
I was doing more research and it seems like the vertical stripes is similar to when televisions fail due to the LCD "tab bonding" failure.
Knock on wood haven't yet had issues with the entire display blacking out...
How often is "intermittent"? Once per minute, once per hour, once per day?
Does it flicker like this?
It happens to non ebay Korean monitors too. Some forum members here are speculating that it has something to do with the TCON used in a eDP display.
Sparkle in matte - yes this is a valid concern. You can either buy glossy, or buy matte and remove the matte film like several of us here have been doing. Some matte coatings are more aggressive than others. Viewing angle can also have an effect. My BL3201PH has crazy sparkle if I look down...
Can anyone perhaps take a photo of the board using a FLIR camera to pinpoint the hotspots? Maybe if we heatsink somewhere it can help with stability? I never noticed it during winter time when my office is cold, but now in summer I see it more and more.
I recorded this about a month ago. Finally found time to throw this into an editor.
Brightness is varied so you can see how bad it gets.
Recorded using an iPhone 6S Plus @ 720P 240FPS. Rendered @ 720P 60FPS
0:00 100% speed 100% brightness (240fps capped at 60fps)
0:20 100% speed 50%...
Now that weather is hot I'm noticing the occasional flicker artifact. It's distracting and annoying. The AG coating isn't the best either.
Thank goodness I like everything else about the monitor, given the compromises of all other large 4K displays available now (BGR, PWM, lag).
