Yamakasi Catleap Monitor Club - Page 289

post #2881 of 11297
I'm waiting for the new dvi-d cord to come in tomorrow, hopefully that will fix the issues I'm having with the monitor.

Right now it's just doing a bunch of vertical lines up and down with a really distorted picture of the desktop and it keeps flashing really bright.

Is it just me or when you start overclocking the monitor the individual pixels became more defined? This is somewhat hard to describe and the best what I can do is instead have having to be less than 4 inches away from the screen you can be in the 3-5 foot range and see individual pixels. There not flashing, they just became easier to spot. I am thinking that its the dvi cable (already placed an order for a higher quality one), but I could be wrong.


Side note

I start noticing this issue above 60hz and the affect is the same all the way up to my stable max of 115hz with 120hz causing artifacts

Just read the first review I've seen for a 4GB GTX680; for anybody wondering, it looks like the extra 2GB isn't of much benefit if you're running a single monitor, even at 2560x1600 (and, by extension, the Catleap's 2560x1440). There's at best a few frames here and there, but nothing to indicate the card is starved for memory. They didn't *really* push them (their high AA tests were at 1920) but at that point you'd be dipping well below 60fps, so it's not really relevant.

Long story short - if you're planning multiple monitors the 4GB GTX680's may still be worth it; for a single Catleap a GTX680 2GB is more than sufficient.

common sense

That's the thing, I am not coming into this to get a 2560x1440 monitor (already have a dell u2711 which I will sell if I get the 2b version). I want the combination of monitor and refresh. Even if I got a perfect version, odds are that it won't be the 2b model.

Then it would be a waste of money. *goes back to Yamakasi Catleap Q270 (100hz guaranteed) thread*

A decent chance it's a loose cable connector on the inside of the monitor, but before taking it apart to reseat the internal cables i would try tightening the DVI cable first.

There's also a chance that you have a kinked/stretched cable inside the monitor, or one of the internal boards could be going bad as well (T-con or mainboard that is).

Finally got my 2C Catleap today. Came from a 27" 1080P HP Glossy that looked GREAT but this just blows it out of the water. There is minimal backlight bleed on the right sides but not a deal breaker. My MSI GTX 580 Lightning runs most games flawlessly but I had to go to max OC for Metro 2033. Either way, I am extremely satisfied with saving $500+ on my monitor purchase.

I would LOVE to go with the OC PCB but I am not good at taking apart electronics and I don't want to jack up this beauty.

The colors etc look pretty cool but the red are a TAD bit anemic... other than that, thumb.gif

I was going to build a custom stand for 3 in portrait mode for a friend, but Houston we have a slight problem.  The panels are super slim and the mounting points would make these real tight to each other, EXCEPT, there is the 1/2" or so LED bottom on these screens so while 2 would be nice and tight, the third would have an awkward distance if you didn't overlap it.  

 

From what I can tell by placing his three up in my little jig I made there is no way to solve this issue so he is going with a different setup.  He didn't like how the third would overlap and kill the smoothness of the screens in the arc.  Of course I told him we could increase the gaps, but he loved them so close that having the larger gap killed it.  Fine by me - less work!

I just picked up 3 Crossover 27Q's. I got impatient and found a good enough deal.

But I'll be opening one up once I confirm them as working. So we can find out if those other PCB's might work. Also see if I can mod it and take off most of the bezel.

From what I understand you were able to source one or two of the PCB's but not the cables? Anyways. Once I open these up we'll find out what they have inside. Won't be for a couple days, but I haven't seen anyone else take apart a crossover.


I received an entire set of internals cables and all (and that was like pulling teeth!)  The more I look at the cables, the more I am convinced these can be easily copied.  If you can sleeve a PSU, you can make these cables.  My PCBs did not go out to China today (I had to work too much!  I hate that.)  Hopefully, tomorrow morning I can get them boxed and sent.

Would a tripple monoprice set-up like this work for him? $80 shipped. Only problem I see is that you would need to mount the monitor in portrait mode, since the mount does not rotate. http://widescreengamingforum.com/forum/11518/monoprice-3-way-adjustable-monitor-arms-triple-setup

I'm thinking of getting a second monoprice mount and replacing my 40" Samsung with 2 catleaps as soon as the 100Hz ones are available.
