I would just go direct with HDMI. You don't need to use the adapter. Unless perhaps, you are saving the HDMI input for another computer. The use the DVI port with your adapter.

I got the problem :-

Use DVI adapter, MAC OS can detect my monitor in display profile and color very good, no need calibration.

But, if use HDMI connection between the monitor and mac mini 2012, color very poor, after calibration still not perfect.
