Yamakasi Catleap Monitor Club - Page 130

post #1291 of 11297
Hey guys, I ordered my Catleap last week Monday 12Mar evening Europe time from dcsamsung. It got shipped w/ in about 3 hours. I'm guessing it was morning there. It arrived here on 16Mar but wasnt home so I got it Monday 19Mar. No problems through Customs. I had to pay 23Euros for the "Administrative Fees". Item was marked as a gift.

Monitor is in perfect condition. No dead/stuck pixels. This thing is so nice to look at! I mean I have the Asus VG236H and Dell U2312HM(didnt know that it was only 6-Bit IPS), the colour difference between them were minimal but the Dell is sooo slow compared to the Asus. The Catleap is waaay ahead in terms of Colour and DPI. Lag is there but not so much. I measure this by moving a window on the screen. The Asus is really fast but it looks pixelated and colours look like a newspaper.

Ive been using it on some old games or slow paced games. BF3 looks nice but looks bad in the animation. My FPS threshold is about 80 so it is disappointing to find out that this doesnt overclock to 80hz.

Im not sure if this is relevant or interesting to any of you but I have an MSI GT680 laptop that I bought in the US last year and the monitor can overclock up to 82Hz stable. I was able to get it to 90hz but it sometimes gives some problem.

Anyway, im interested in the PCB to overclock the monitors. Thank you guys for the awesome work and research that you are doing.

ScribbyDaGreat,

can you update the front page and add additional ways of overclocking the hz? Seem like we getting alot of people posting different ways to achieve higher hz. Would be nice to see all of them in one page. thanks
post #1293 of 11297
ScribbyDaGreat,

Did you remove Toastyx overclock hz and replace it with the new AMD overclock guide? cuz I went back and only see the new AMD overclock guide but don't see Toastyx overclock for 100hz using nvdia card.

Sweeeeeet. Local computer store has 2x gtx 680's left in stock. They're being held for me now. We'll get to see if anything changes thanks to the new cards. Or if I can at least hit the same 105hz as with the radeon.

I will when I get some time later on tonight.

 

EDIT:  Besides I need to stay up to at least 2am since all my PCB contacts send me emails between 12:30 and 2:00 am!  rolleyes.gif

Nope - it was never posted there.  Just added the AMD this morning.  Nothing was in for nVidia.

My tracking status hasn't been updated since sending date (tuesday). Is this something I should worry about?

Where's the post you posted long time ago where Toasty showed his overclock to i think 100hz?

Are you checking on eBay or usps.com ? I found that eBay was never up to date like usps.com was. EMS is through USPS.

At least that was the case with my shipment from greensum.

Quickie tutorial - right click on your desktop to select Screen Resolution.  Then click advanced settings

The problem with windows LUT loader is as soon as you start up a game or full screen app it will just reset the LUT to its default and you will lose your calibration. I would recommend this lut loader instead: http://www.hex2bit.com/products/product_mcw.asp#downloads

It's lightweight, sits in the system tray and enforces the LUT at all times. Also it stores the LUT as a small file so you can edit the LUT manually in a hex editor so you can tweak your shadow detail if needed (sometimes you lose the bottom few shades in calibration due to rounding errors).

For 2C owners, is there any possibility in using this program to flash the display's EEPROM via EDID to allow higher refresh rate? In particular this paragraph caught my attention:
Quote:
"softMCCS is the first tool in the world capable of flashing a display's EEPROM entirely through the use of software alone. Provided there is no hardware write-protection, jigs and other programming fixtures are no longer required to update the EDID."

In particular, bytes 38-53 "vertical frequency" and bytes 54-71 under "Detailed timing descriptor":
