From all the comments on the Catleaps I am almost convinced now that Witech is sourcing parts from everywhere, throwing them into a bin, and mixing and matching as these things make their way down the assembly line.  Too many monitors (either 2Bs or 2Cs) have completely different panels, parts, PCBs, and covers for me to think otherwise.

I love love love my Shimian. Dreamseller got it to me quick and in perfect condition, but I also ordered well before they seemed to get flooded with orders and started to fall behind a bit.

If you aren't trying to land a panel that goes well over 60Hz, no reason not to get one in my mind.

Mine is XFX 5770, original BIOS. I am trying to connect the monitor to one of the dual-link DVI-D connectors .... at a loss
What I am trying to do is have same card drive 3 monitors: Apple 30" (DVI), Catleap (DVI) and another Dell 24" (DP)


This will not work. I have a HD 5770, and I can run my Catleap off of the DL-DVI port. However, the HD 5770 only has a single DL-DVI port; the other is a SL-DVI and will not drive either the ACD 30" or Catleap at native resolutions. The only way you'll be able to run your setup is the following:

ACD 30 off DisplayPort
Catleap off DL-DVI
Dell 24" off SL-DVI.

The 5750 is listed as not compatible as well but I'm using it, I think that just refers to the fact that it won't GPU-scale the bios screen so you don't get a picture on the monitor until Windows loads.

Depends on the manufacturer of the cards -- the reference 5750 has a single-link and dual-link, but my Gigabyte 5750 has two dual-links.

Can you run high resolution/120hz links out of both DVI at the same time? I am skeptical about any HD 5750 (any HD 5xxx/6xxx) having 2x true DL-DVI ports, regardless of what Gigabyte may say.

About to pull the trigger on a Shimian. Can anyone real quick tell me the difference between the Lite version and the regular IPSB?

ISPB has a tempered glass front, lite doesnt. Only difference.
Many people with the ISPB have reported dust behind the glass as the monitor is not manufactured in a clean room. Its a risk you take...
