Ordered my Catleap from Green-Sum on 26.03, delivered to Perth Australia on 04.04 way ahead of time (as stated extra 2 weeks for pixel perfect). Mine is "SE" pixel perfect model , no glass , no speakers, serial no 2A !
Only connected to test it as waiting for my new "proper" v.card. No dead pixels , nice uniformity, crappy wonky stand leaning to right. Will get proper Vesa mount later on.
Has anyone had 2A series and tried overclocking one?

That's neat! You can try OC'ing to see what happens, or opening and comparing your PCB to pictures of the B and C variants to see if it looks like one of them, or if it's different alltogether. Please let us know! smile.gif

I took the metal cover off to take a look at the PCB and see if there was anything fried... everything looked ok, so I got a little closer to sniff around and concluded that there HAD to be something burnt.
Took the PCB out, flipped it over, and two of the ICs are melted (U300 and U302... haven't looked closely to see if any others are gone). As more proof that something burned, I looked back at the metal plate which was under the PCB and there are two big brown spots where those ICs were in contact with.
So there's my problem, parts of this board fried. DId it happen under my care or someone else's, I can't say for sure. This monitor was supposed to be new from green-sum (I did not ask for perfect pixel check so it should not have been opened) and I did not notice anything strange when I plugged it in the first time today - just that it would not turn on.
Now I really don't know what to do. I know what the issue is (or maybe whatever fried the board also damaged the panel too, I don't know, hopefully not?) and it would be a lot easier and cheaper if it was possible to just send the PCB back and get a replacement for it... but what do I say to green-sum? I'm pretty sure I voided the warranty by opening it up. -_-"
Help. I feel screwed out of $450.

Well a few things.

1) Is it obvious that it has been opened up? If not, I'd just have them swap it.
2) Is it possible to just replace the melted components? That's an option but I'd stay away from it because if replacing them doesn't fix it, then you're definitely out of warranty.

Also I'd say that he'd probably need the entire monitor as otherwise it'd be clear that the monitor had been opened and the manufacturer will not take it back, and also...the manufacturer generally wants the whole unit back to figure out why this happened to the monitor in the first place. Hope they will take care of the issue for you without too many hassles!

I had this issue with my 42 LG HDTV 240Hz, with the white color also. I thought it was normal.

oh yea, thanks for your information
after some simple google I found that it is really normal on TV or monitor that make buzzing sound when white color

BUT at 60hz, my monitor dont make any sound at all @ white color screen
only at higher rate, ie 65-90hz, it will make sound

anyway it is not a big deal to me so just forget it lol

Hey all, I'm just curious if there's a way to confirm what board model you have without cracking the monitor open?

You could always create a custom resolution of 70hz in nvidia control panel or selecting 70hz with an ati card using powerstrip or cru and if it works, you have a good board. Non-OC boards cap out at 67hz. Though I'm sure there are more intelligent ways of checking this.

A 580 is a decent card, for sure, but the 1.5gb and general power of the card means you can play on a single card, but will have to use medium quality settings, with probably no anti-aliasing. This is all, of course, depending on what framerate you're looking for. If you're aiming for 30 frames a second...you're golden. 60 frames, with medium settings. Above that...no anti-aliasing, and all medium settings should roughly do it.

I've asked this before and was told I'd be fine but I have the GTX 560 TI 448, would I only be able to run my games at medium settings too? I don't know what frames per second I'll be. I'll be using the standard 60hz cause I don't know anything about taking apart a monitor to overclock it.

Most likely although it really depends on the game. 1440p is not quite double 1080p, it's about 85% bigger though. I know my 580 can run Skyrim on ultra still but BF3 is choppy. You will probably need to lower your settings for most games with only a 560 to get good frame rates.

I had time to test my eyefinity setup and those screens run perfect at 1080p in games. People were saying it looks like cr*p but it's not true. It just looks better at 1440p... nothing different, higher resolution are always better anyway.

I also tried eyefinity with my triple 6970, at 1440p, its easily makeable. I had low FPS though (30 fps, max settings) ) but you just need to lower the quality settings,turn off Anti Aliasing and you get a big boost in FPS and you don't see any obvious quality reduction. I can run easily at 60fps average now. No point to go higher with 60hz monitors.

I'm pretty satisfied.
