Here is a question for you guys. If I were to order a crossover would I be able to get one of these pcbs if they become available to OC that? And if we don't know for sure do we speculate that it most likely would?

Good luck!

 

If you are doing it right you get no marks.  tongue.gif  Make sure you are using a WIDE flat blade screwdriver and pulling the bezel away from the back with decent force so there is plenty of tension.  Then once you slide the blade in a small twist is all that is needed to pop the bezel - check the photos closely since if you just rest the blade on the front lip you will mark up the bezel easily.  The sides require a little more twist I found.  The top and bottom should pull off without using the blade once you get it started.

No idea.  I have asked for pictures of the internals for both Achievas and Crossovers and haven't seen any yet (granted I am not out trolling for them either.)  If you have seen them, shoot me a PM, no need to clog up the Club with your crappy monitor details!  biggrin.gif

 

Just to be clear - here are the four parts necessary to OC (thanks to bQvle for the all-in-one).  Working on getting them.

Yes, but it doesn't look good. You want pixel for pixel rendering and running one of these monitors at 1080p will make things look muddy.

I'm a bit unclear on the resolution part.

I ordered my Catleap recently.

And What I want to know I will go about the fact is I want to game on a 1920x1080 resolution with out black borders.

Does this mean that each time I will want to play a game on 1920x1080 I will have to change the monitors resolution from 2560x1440 to 1920x1080 and then launch the game, (Cause as far as I am concerned, if you launch a game and set a 1920 resolution in its settings then you will have the game take up 1920 resolution space and the rest will just be black borders on a 2560resolution monitor)


It would be very cumbersome.

Id like to play games on 1920x1080 since I think I will get to few FPS on a 2560 resolution, and when I exit the game I'd like to have 2560 resolution w/o having to change any settings in desktop preference or anything.

Both 1440p (2560x1440) and 1080p (1920x1080) are 16:9 ratio. You will not get a black border if you set the in game settings @ 1080p while your desktop is @ 1440p, as long as it's a full screen game.

You will be able to play without borders using your Graphics card as scalar.

Try setting your monitor one step below its native resolution ingame. you will get the same with Yamakasi.
it might even look better at 720p, then 1 pixel will be equal to 4px at 2560x1440.

Thanks for the link to the club.  Based on the pics and PNs on the PCBs, no this will not work for you guys (now I think!)  Someone could be brave, since the panel is the same, and take these parts and stick them in there to see what happens.  It looks to me that the first panel in the thread handles the power/brightness and the second panel obviously is the DVI (not pictured here).

 

Interesting pic - did this guy add this stuff to his board to stop buzzing or is this stock?

Also, these are made by the same PCB peeps who cannot schpell - see desgined:

Thanks Sxcerino and bQvle, I hope you are right.


I am using a SyncMaster 2232bw right now, and my catleap is still in shipping.

Thing with Syncmaster is that its resolution is 1680x1050 and aspect ratio 16:10.

When I launch a game and apply a resolution of 1280x720, on a full screen I get the black borders.

that's due to ratio scaling. i have a 16:10 monitor (1920x1200) and I get the same borders in 1080 movies as well.

If you set the game resolution to something like 1280x800 you will not get black borders either, albeit it's smaller than your native resolution.

Tore the thing apart and dis/reconnected the DP connector and fired it up again and everything worked flawless again, except the power/brightness buttons so I'm probably going to have to do another teardown.. Too bad you can't really do it without leaving marks on the bezel.

I wonder if the problem with the monitor displaying colored lines after turning it on is exclusive to the 2C model controller boards. It happened to me twice already, and I've only had the monitor for a week. Luckily for me, turning the monitor off and back on fixes the problem. Is anyone with the 2B model experiencing something similar?
