Having speakers doesn't mean it's a 2C or a 2B. Look at the serial on the monitor/box and let us know please smile.gif.

Has anyone tried overclocking a Crossover yet, or are the people who ordered one still waiting on them?

I ordered a Catleap from dcsamsungmall on the night of 3/11 and it's already out for delivery today, 3/13, to NYC. Unbelievable lol. Hoping for something without too many dead pixels....

Ya, dumb question. I just realised that you already told us this. I didn't get back to the thread before you responded lol. Thank you for the info though!

So I just received my Catleap Q270 SE.

All was good until I started trying to drive the panel above 60hz. It seems 69hz is the highest I could get before getting lines / garbage across the screen, so it seems I'm not blessed with one of those that can do 97hz.

I changed my settings to be similar to Toastyx's just to try it out since I saw that he had mentioned switching vertical back porch to achieve higher frequency. In the midst of fooling around with it I managed to get the panel to start burning-in whatever was on it, but eventually it would go away. I deleted the EDID information since I forgot to screenshot the defaults, deleted the monitor profile, reconnected it and let it redetect and then simply set it to 67hz.

67hz seems fine, but some websites and such seem to.. shimmer like a CRT monitor at 50hz. The blue background on this site for example, is shimmering like all hell.

quick question are the Catleaps better quality then the shimian? Since i'll be buying 4 of these i might be able to strike a deal with one of the sellers on Ebay

I ordered one from him last night, hopefully I will get the same level of service and have it here by Friday.
