I was surprised I wasn't able to tell the difference going from 60hz after playing a few games with VSync on (BF3, Skyrim, Borderlands 2). My Fraps counter displayed consistent max fps for whatever refresh rate I had going so I can tell it was working properly. I'll admit I also can't really seem to notice inferior response time compared to my '1ms response time' Samsung TN panel (since I'm not into competitive gaming maybe?). With that being said I'm really glad I stuck with this monitor over the Swift (so far at least). Big thanks to those who've been helpful thumb.gif! I will stick around this forum to see what guys are up to here and there.
Automatic timings...

The real trick is to use ToastyX's Custom Resolution Utility and really tweak the timings super tight and low:

1ms response time at 60hz not so eye popping, and 85hz also not very noticeable. 120hz should be. To me it's like nails on a chalkboard going back to 60hz. Just moving the mouse around is ugly.

OK, didnt know that. But tempered glass on "clear" panels should not be an issue. Where tempered glass got a bad name is it being on top of matte screens like on many of the Qnix panels (adding reflections that the AG coating is supposed to minimize). So I dont think I would mind tempered glass on catleaps but would certainly object to it on a matte Qnix.

By the way guys, forgot to ask, but the OC method for 780Ti's is the same for the Catleaps as the Qnix? Just install catleap driver, fire up NVCP and create custom resolution? No CRU or patching?

Pretty much unless you need to tweak the timings to an advanced level, NVCP should do the trick.

Hello my Leapers Clubbers,

So i've been talking back and forth one message everyday (because the timezones), and we've gotten a conclusion (hopefully). Bigclothcraft has promised to send me 2B board even when manufacturer said that it is not reccommended and might not work.
He also was offering me a "fair" price normal monitor as a "special discount" but i found that special discount was same price than one other shop.
Anyway i have high believes that the bigclothcraft is fair seller and can solve problems, but to my defense bigclothcraft would not have able to use stall tactics because i instantly opened Request Refund (ebay buyer protection) .

Anyway nothing has been sent yet but i have my hopes up and this seems to be just bad luck that they sent me wrong model, thats life that can happen to any of us.

About my monitor i do have little BLB on top left corner it seems like something is pushing to too hard making light blend, i might have to open this baby up and loose something.
I also have that Yellow Sport on right corner, it is small and when i try to push it with my hand or tap it with pen it kidna fades away but comes back slowly. (any ideas to fix this?)

Hey no problem wink.gif ... But I've done a lot of research over the years and I'd caution you about the placement of tempered glass even on top of an LG Glossy redface.gif
The tempered glass will diffuse more light adding more reflections AND cause your "blacks" to be more greyed out ...

I'll refer to MenacingTuba a guru of panel quality/characteristics ... more pics Here wink.gif

This is great news! ... green-sum is one of the largest re-sellers, it's where my QNIX came from quite some time ago ... and it looks like they are making a genuine effort to honor your expectations/wishes biggrin.gif

I might have to get rid of my glass at some point. Thankfully mine is removable with a simple twist of a screw driver and a dozen screws. However, I been planning on using the glass bezel as a means to mount mine, so I am going to go through with it until I come up with another plan. The beauty of my glass edge to edge bezel kinda threw me off and screwed with my mind as I was thinking how the heck can I ignore both the beauty of it and the convenience of a built in mounting method already present.

But now with all this talk about glossy vs matte vs glass, I am thinking that next spring I will just dig in and build a vesa mount for it. What I like about my Dell is that the screen NEVER attracts dust and I live in a very dusty environment just 20 yards off a busy dirt/gravel road. I am not sure if the LG panel I have will do the same for me and repel dust particles as my Dell surely does. The glass will surely be easier to clean every now and then.

I might have to open my panel up too and reconnect all the cables.

I am having the same issue purchased a catleap this week and anything above 100 gives me this dots lines did you solved this ???

Also could it be we are limited to a 100hz overclock????

I wanted to post an update in regards to reliability. I bought a Yamikasi back in 2012, and it's now dead. One day a few months back, half the screen went dim, so I was assuming the LEDs gave out. I decided to "open 'er up" and I found some worrysome stuff. One of the main power connectors for the panel had burned, and become charred. Thank God this thing didn't burn my house down.

Also, as others have probably reported the power brick for this thing ran VERY hot...like too hot to hold for more than 10 seconds or so. ****e, I say, ****e.

I was able to use CRU on my AMD rig but my custom resolutions I try to set with CRU aren't showing in the Nvidia Control Panel nor through Windows on my Intel rig. Not sure what I'm doing wrong but I did install the Catleap_Q270_OC.inf driver if that has anything to do with it. So far the only custom settings I can set up are through Nvidia only. Even then, I can't seem to delete custom settings unless I go through reinstalling Nvidia's display drivers which isn't a big deal.
