Regarding the "monitor buzzing" fix...
Is there a specific type of epoxy that is recommended, or is even the generic 5 minute one from general stores alright?

Just about any old normal epoxy should do the trick, assuming it's not some specific silver-infused conductive version or something...
Don't go overboard with it though, because it can impede cooling on the coils somewhat if they're completely embedded in it. You should also confirm it's not the coil buzzing against the metal cover as Scribby discovered (this may explain some, but not all cases of buzzing).

The problem with me getting one of these monitors is that I have zero soldering/taking apart monitors confidence. So if it arrived with a problem - unless I did a bunch of research and took a chance with my unproven skillset (or lack thereof), I would pretty much be stuck with whatever I got.

And that's part of the risk in getting a monitor of these specs at this price point; there's no such thing as a free lunch. You want total confidence in your buy? Top-tier manufacturers (and their $700-$1000 price tags) are over that way wink.gif

Hey Everyone! I'm going to share something that I think will help a lot of people.

Alright! So, I got my monitor the other day and I thought I had a lemon. It wouldn't turn on. Blinking green light. I didn't want to open the monitor so I screwed around with plugging and unplugging the DVI cable and still nothing. Finally I plugged the monitor into my pc AS WELL AS my old monitor. My pc booted and displayed on the old monitor. I then used windows "screen resolution" tool (for noobs, right click on the desktop to select it) and added my Yamakasi as a second "extended display". It turned on! Great! No dead pixels and looking beautiful. But, when I unplugged my old monitor the Catleap wouldn't display anymore!

Solution: Go into Nvidia control panel (I'm assuming you have an Nvidia card like me). Go to "set up multiple displays". Remove the checkmark from your old display and click apply in the bottom right corner.

Voila! You've now changed the Yamakasi to be your primary monitor!

Hope that helps some of you!

I have the catleap by my old 24" dell 1920 x 1200 monitor. One glaring difference is the blue. The blue is so strong, and I have tried calibrating it using windows standard calibration tools. Is this normal? Have a laptop with led backlight and blues aren't this shifted.

Are you using the profiles from the first post in this thread from toasty? The two 6500k and 65d are both blue shifted. I find that they are nice since it allows brightness to be turned up a bit. The native profile is far more yellow/red and shifts the blue out. You can also buy a monitor calibration tool if you dont already have one

That is true, good sir.

I did take a chance with my dell u2711. I got it for $AU 280. Including delivery. From ebay. The problem was that the screen flickered for 10-20 minutes when you first turned it on, it included no power cable. I hooked it up, and the flickering was there as described. I purchased a newer cable. Problem fixed.

rrp of 800-900 AU.

Same with my ps3, purchased the thing for like 100 bucks more than a year ago - the dvd drive did not work. I was going to use one from my friends broken ps3 - tested it after I received it. Drive did not work. Updated the bios. Drive worked.

The problem is, I can't just expect that I will get lucky simply because I have been so far. If there is a slight issue with my monitor will I disregard it? No way. I'll make the best of what I have.

I am sincerely hoping that it does not come to that however.

If i get a premium priced gtx 690 and it's anything other than working at 100%. That's when I'll make a stink.
