BOTH with speakers. damn, that does confuse the problem. would have been nice if it was as simple as the speaker ones OC and the speakerless ones don't.

in the end i'm happy. i've been living with 60hz for years and years. even if no one had been able to get pas 60hz i would have still bought the monitor. i don't game competitively anymore so it's not a huge issue for me.

I ordered in the afternoon on March 6th from Green-sum. I have no dead or stuck pixels, however I will probably get another monitor stand as this one can't be adjusted and is rather wobbly. Other then that I am blown away by the upgrade from my old Dell 2405.

I hope we can determine if there's some indicator somewhere on the models which will do higher refresh rates. Perhaps the serial number is different or there's some designation on the box.

Here is the wall mount set up.

That's exactly the type of wall mount I've been looking for. Can you please share where you purchased them?

I just received mine from redcap today. 1 Dead pixel, one Stuck pixel.

Anyone have any secrets to get them out?

Ok so here I am going to confuse this whole issue of OC-ability on these monitors A LOT.

As I posted above I have a completely different panel setup in the new monitor I received today (both are with speakers.)  I go to OC this new one - no dice.  Nothing works at all above 60.  I was trying to OC with all 4 monitors plugged in - see my setup pics below.  Unplugging everything led me to a weird outcome that maybe someone with more knowledge of GPUs can answer.

The most powerful card I have in my work system at the moment (I am not ready for my 560 SLI water setup yet) is a GTS 250.  Originally, I had no issues OCing my lower monitor (see pics below) and have 4 different custom rates installed.

So here is where it gets a little weird for me.  With the new monitor plugged into the second output on the 250 I have no issues (just cannot get above 60 even with all other monitors unplugged) and it shows up just fine - and very pretty.  When I plug the new one into the first output (the one I have OCed my older monitor on) the new monitor goes nuts or simply shows all black.  Here's my question, when you establish custom refresh rates do they "hold" with the output on the GPU?  If so, that would make sense as to why my new monitor will not work in the first output.

So overall here is where I think this is at - at least with what I have in hand - there are two different panel designs (or more) being shipped.  One that can be OCed (like the fuzzy pic above) and one that cannot be OCed (like the clear pic above).  The difference in the two panels?  No idea.  What I do know for sure is they use two completely different plugs and boards.  The monitor I can OC has dual plug-ins and the monitor I cannot OC has a single plug-in.  Of course, we won't know for sure until we get a bunch of people opening their monitors to check.

What pics and what plugs are you referring to?

It also can't go above 60Hz. Seems like I lost the lotto. Oh well!

Here's what I am referring to:

 

Top pic is the (crappy) pic of the monitor I can OC with ease.  It has a two-prong plug in and different board than my new one (plus the brightness, etc. wiring is plugged in from the right side of the panel.  My new monitor has this plug in on the left side.)  Bottom pics are the new monitor - single plug, different PCB.

My gut is telling me there will not be any indicator as to whether a particular model will or will not OC.  I think the manufacturer is interchanging panels or has since the first run of the monitors and is now using a different panel setup (clearly something changed between the two I have.)  My new one has what would appear to be a later SN than my first one.  Monitor I can OC is LED2B - monitor I cannot is LED2C.  We obviously need more info from other owners to try and figure this out.
