I have a Benq IPS/AHVA (depending on who you ask, I guess) monitor, they are the AUO parent company. It has less glow and bleed than my Catleap 2B, and even the 2B isn't that bad.

Well i have 2 980's custom watercooled and highly overclocked so it would be good if i could get this monitor oc up to120hz.

Is it still only certain early versions that can do this or has anymore tricks been found to oc these monitors? Much appreciated.

It's still only the original "Glossy" Cat2B version for Yamakasi or the Overlord Tempest (USA version) redface.gif

There is an LG "Matte" version, the Crossover 2795 and it is the only one made now without PWM. It will reliably clock to 96Hz, sometimes 110Hz, but very rarely 120Hz ... see HERE wink.gif

There is still the QNIX 2710 (Samsung PLS) that even comes as a glossy, BUT all the newer ones (L07 panels) all seem to have PWM diming redface.gif

Do you have original Cat2B's? If not your only option, besides being lucky enough to ever find a used Cat2B for sale, would be to modify your own with the original "Overclock Kits" from the bankruptcy sale from Overlord. They are a steel at appx $107 ... see HERE ... For others they could pick up a used Catleap Q270 (not originally overclockable like HERE) ... put in the Overclock kit (above) and have essentially an overclockable Cat2B WITH a true "Glossy" screen that picture quality wise blows away all the others, including the utter crap $800 Acer/Asus matte AUOptronic panels ... for a little over $200! biggrin.gif

Sure there is no GSync/ULMB but when I put an Asus PG279Q side by side up against both my 1440p/120Hz LG/Samsung Glossy panels, there was no way I'd accept paying a $500-$600 dollar Premium for a panel that looked as bad as the Asus with it's not only BLB/Glow problems but atrocious Uniformity problems as well!!! I doubt I could even accept one that was in the $400-$450 range with that PQ redface.gif

There are still cheap Korean monitors to be had though, like the new 4k panels and such. But honestly, I'd rather purchase from someone like Acer or Asus now.

Perfect example of why Acer/Asus thinks they can get away with their QC BS!!! mad.gif

post #11113 of 11286
Ah finally an active thread on korean monitor overclocking!!!

guys I have some serious questions I hope you can help with...

Let me explain my situation.

I have found 2 Korean monitors for sale for a great price locally, specs are below

1. a Crossover Q27 LED-P for $150 w/ no dead pixels and seemingly no shadows or any other 'defects" on the screen. The current owner has not tested the ability to overclock and since its a crossover I assume that the best I could do is 70hz but probably not even that.

2. a Yamakasi Catleap for $175 with no dead pixels but I haven't gotten him to send me a video with varying angles to determine if it has any shadows. This user can confirm he reaches 105hz no problem on this panel for gaming.

Ultimately I want a beautiful 1440p screen for gaming with the potential to overclock to atleast 90hz.

I'm tempted to buy the crossover as its quality and stand seem better, and then buy the PCB listed above from the overlord sale. This would get me overclocked AND I would have a spare PCB just in case. However this costs me 250-260 where as the catleap monitor, if I can get proof it has no shadows or any other defects, will get me where I want to be for 175.

The other thing I'm worried about is NOT having a spare PCB if it ever goes bad and then not being able to get one later down the road.

My biggest concern on the crossover is the 2B PCB fitting... I understand there will have to be some modding, but how much? is there a tutorial on replacing a Crossover Q27 PCB with a 2B PCB somewhere so I can evaluate?

Any thoughts and advice are very appreciated, I am very excited to upgrade my monitor life.
post #11114 of 11286
To add a little more context to option 1 here is the research I have done and I am REALLY hoping someone can validate my thinking.

From what I can tell the 27q LED comes with the 2C parts as described in this link: 2B vs 2C

If I buy the following overclock kit, it comes with both boards the 2B kit needs: 2B overclock kit

So since it has both boards it should have everything I need. The only thing i'm not 100% certain on is how the monitor connects to the control PCB but I assume that that connection is universally the same and there isn't a "2C" or "2B" type of display but PLEASE correct me if i'm wrong.

so I should be able to take the kit, replace BOTH boards (since the 2B has the 2 wire method and the 2C has the 1 wire they are completely incompatible). and just hook the display up to the new 2B board

I'm very confused by the pictures I see because to ME it looks like the display in the crossover monitor is wired into the PCB with the DVI-D port (the main board?) but the catleap, and in particular the 2B overclock kit, the monitor also has 2 wires and connects to the smaller "daughter" board instead?

am I missing something? can someone show me better illustrations on how these various monitors are wired up?
post #11115 of 11286
I'm 95% sure the overclock-able parts don't fit inside the Crossover 27Q since it has differently placed connections and mounting brackets. This was covered on the now defunct Overlord site back when they sold the overclocking kits.

right, from my understand though its just case modifications to get it to fit though, circuitry wise everything should work right?

I don't mind doing case modifications as I have done them in the past and this feature add would be worth it.

Does anyone still sell the upgraded boards? My Monitor just crapped out and I'm not sure how to fix it frown.gif

Does anyone know where you can buy the regular boards? Mine finally died and I can see one of the caps on the board burned up.

They can be ordered from Korea (taobao), but it costs more and makes no sense to do so when tested overclock-able parts can be ordered off of eBay.
