Yamakasi Catleap Monitor Club - Page 1065

post #10641 of 11297
Sure you can. green-sum delivered a Yamakasi with two stuck pixels in the center of the screen. On the plus side they agreed to replace the screen. But every question i send to them wasn't really answered. I even got the same generic answer for two different mails. Right now all i know is that DHL will ship it back but nothing about the planned timeline for delivering a new one. And as i read to many bad stories about the current Yamakasi 2Bs i hope to get a refund instead of a new one.
I prefer the Qnix as it also has a good image in my opinion and it goes up to 100hz. I check it a few minutes ago and it can't go up to 120hz like i mentioned a few posts before. But that could be the case as i switched the cables a few times and made some configuration with CRU.
Like a learned the hard way: There is no guarantee for overlocking...

@ontariotl:
Me neither. I needed to check the offer and google to be sure smile.gif

I'm probably one of the guys who wouldn't care as i can't really compare right now. Maybe i will test it with both monitors tomorrow.

I don't know what forums (besides this one) you are reading but when I did my research, I've only read one person who had been able to get 135Hz, and that was with SLi at the time. Not all Catleaps were at 135Hz, 120Hz was and is still obtainable, still just luck of the draw.

It is possible when the Catleaps came out 2 years ago, the product had more quality to them, but since have cheaped out on parts that connect to the panel to save money and well....to make more money.

Well it's impossible to "prove you wrong" but I already did pay more for mine and already own a 120hz 24/7 unit. I'm not recommending anyone buy another one because then i feel guilty when they can't do 120hz even though there's like 15 factors at play.

One thing I do know for a fact: the 2B OC used to have very low PWM frequency. Mine is not PWM. Vega bought 8 Catleaps and they were all pwm and all overclocked very high. There have been changes to these units over the years they've been selling them and that's all I can say.

Thank mate. I guess I was thinking as long as my 660 was up to the job it would overclock. I know you had dead pixels but did you try to get 120hz on the catleap with the GTX 660?
post #10644 of 11297
I did and it failed as i got screen distortions. But not as bad as with 96, 100 and 110hz.
Mostly i could see it when watching video files or on the text in a browser.

I'm with you with owning a 120Hz 24/7 Catleap and it's only been a few weeks of purchasing it. So it is still possible. I would still recommend it if it was at the price I paid and not the price jump extortion now as its a beautful looking panel regardless of overdriving the panel. With that, I would never say it is 100% going to hit 120Hz all the time no matter how many have posted they have made that golden mark.

It's like me telling everyone to buy an Ivy Bridge 3770K because I hit 5Ghz and every one should hit that mark like me because they are manufactured the same process and haven't changed at all, just different wafers. That would be insane.

Everyone has different hardware, different drivers running and circumstances that may hold an overclock back which you already stated your realise and agree with, which goes the same for the Catleaps. I agree with }SkOrPn--' that the internal cables to the Panel were to be upgraded to something better, it will probably add more success to the overdrive to 120Hz. I can't tell no one to not buy it because there is no garuantee, it's what us overclockers do...push the limit and sometimes results could be disappointing.

I haven't tested for PWM as it hasn't bothered me since I don't dim my monitor. But yeah, Vega went bat **** crazy with buying a whole bunch of them. And I agree, they probably have better components installed at that time.

All I'm saying is with the price jump, doesn't mean there are different components inside. They are the same product that was sold a week ago with lower prices. Now it's just a cash grab.

Ok cheers, I'll do some more thinking then and have a look at the Qnix. I haven't looked into that model yet.

Good price but can this website be trusted?

If they still have that price by the time I have the money I certainly hope so. Green-Sum on ebay have lost their minds.. $550? Really? Thats $200 more than a couple of days ago.

Once people stop buying them, the price will drop again.

Okay, this is probably a bad place to ask this but here goes. I'm in the market for a new monitor. Looking at the Yamakasi Catleap and a few other Asian monitors. I don't want to spend more than about 350.00 to 400.

Which ones are the best deal? I don't care about brand loyalty or anything like that. I see Yamakasi has a few other or new models like the Jupiter? Are they inferior to the Catleap model? Or are they same basic model? What about QNIX?

I'm not a monitor expert so please be nice.

Needs:

I game FPS shooter. Do CAD rendering, and spend way too much time on my computer... like about 10 hours a day minimum. (probably why my eyes are going bad)

Any tips or help greatly appreciated.
