So I have been looking for a new monitor for a while, and what I'm looking for is a 1080p 144Hz monitor that is G-Sync compatible and doesn't break the bank. Considering this factors I came to the conclusion that my best option was the AOC G2590FX. The thing is the monitor has an horrible red color on its chin and me being someone that worries a lot about setup looks I can't stand it. So my question is: does anyone know someway that I can remove that red bar from it? Or maybe a cheap way to maybe paint it or something like that? Does somebody that has this monitor ever found way to remove the red bar?
Btw I know that there is a G2 special edition that is silver but it costs 300€ which is about 80€ above the 220€ I can get the monitor for.

Buy a tin of acrylic paint and a paintbrush
Perhaps use some masking tape if you are concerned about looks.
Edit: I see there is only the panel and that bar, so you may be able to remove the panel then paint it to prevent painting the panel

There is a good chance that bar can be removed, but are you OK with having a hole there with maybe some monitor insides showing and exposed to damage vs just having a red bar? Or cracking another part of the case, or maybe even damaging the screen if something slips? Then you are out the money you paid since they won't take a mangled monitor back under warranty.

Get it, see if that thing pops off easily. If not, you still have a monitor. Buy some more red things to get used to the color LOL
