Yamakasi Catleap Monitor Club - Page 349

post #3481 of 11298
Hey guys, so I'll be getting one of these a little later (100hz+ I hope) and didn't even think about how these would react to someone using an avr in between a PC and the monitor.


I currently have my sig rig hooked up, with a bunch of mini dp to dp/hdmi adapters with one hdmi cable going into my Harmon Kardon avr 2600 and the avr's output to my TV. Since I'm going with a 27" I feel like I don't actually need the 42" TV so I'll be re-arranging my room and selling the TV.



Now I'm wondering if I do this will the OC affect all the inputs and will my avr have any issue with it. It supports 3D so I would assume 120hz would be fine but TV and PC monitor specifications can vary. I would still want a dual monitor set up for multi tasking so I would probably use the ve258q as the second monitor. I would have an hdmi cable from the avr to the ve258q but if that would be an issue maybe a second catleap if I have to.


I have no idea if it will work but was wondering if anyone had run into the same issue. Would someone like to test it out for me? I ask here since most users will see it here.



I read more than a few pages but couldn't see anyone with my set up but this is a long thread so I must've missed it. Also note I can go Sli 460's 1gb so nvidia user tests are welcomed. biggrin.gif

Just ordered  Perfect Pixel Catleap Q270 SE, from bigclothcraft on eBay

 

I know it is with out speakers, but is that with tempered glass or not ?

 

It doesn't say on the listing and I cant seem to find clear info to what the SE stands for

 

 

 

 

Edit:  Just found the info...without speakers & without glass   thumb.gif smile.gif

 

I didn't see the SE after the Korean writing

Everyone in here still satisfied with their Catleap?

I'm tempted to do a paypal request to get my money back from the guy I bought my monitor from. I keep asking him if I can return or get a refund and he still won't respond to me. It's been within the 14 day return policy too. It's been about a week and no word from him. The vendor I used was dcsamsungmall. He was fine and trying to help until he realized my monitor won't work and needs to be returned.

Just to make sure I'm understanding the situation with the Catleap and refresh overclocking. Am I correct in stating that you're highly unlikely to get a 2B varient which can be overclocked to around 100 Hertz and that you'll most likely (if you buy one now) get one that can manage 67 htz at most. There's talk of OC ordering ones with the specific overclocable PCB but it's still up in the air, so to speak but some members have ordered the (clockable) PCB and will sell it/make it available to the rest of us? Is all of the above correct?

I know that this has already been discussed but there are so many posts and threads on the subject I'm not sure I've read all I need to.

A few more questions. I note that the Catleap has specific graphics cards listed with which it claims to be compatible. Are there cards it will not work with? I've a GTX 590 and I note it's not listed as being compatible. I can't for the life of me understand why it wouldn't be and a 580 would be. Are there any issues I should be aware of?

Final question. I've seen the input lag results (Low input latency is something which is very important to me!) and they're around 11 - 12 ms which is quite good (but not as low as some 24' TN panels obviously).

Can you all confirm (hard core gamers I mean) that this panel doesn't suffer from any lag or do any of you think that finding is not necessarily the case?

From what I read I want this monitor but like most I'm waiting for the 100 hertz option (if it ever arrives).

Thanks for your time.

So I seem to have a small problem with my catleap.
Every morning I turn on my pc after the windows loading splash screen I get this: 450

After I do a hard reset then everything is working fine until next morning when I have to do the same thing again. Anyone knows what's going on?

Hello! I got my own catleap today and seeing as it was the 2b model, I decided to overclock it to 100hz (I have gtx 580). The overclocking works fine (BIG thanks for the guide) and games are SO smooth thumb.gif Now im wondering if i need to keep this test mode enabled or not? I am also wondering if running the monitor @ 100hz 24/7 will strain it too much? Should i lower it to 60hz when im not playing? Also seeing that the powerbrick gets a bit (too?) hot worries me. Should i get a better powerbrick? I live in Finland so I think the stock one should be okay here?
I have 2 dead /stuck pixels on my monitor but they dont bother me at all. Im glad I bought the monitor smile.gif

Without you posting details obviously as it's against site policy, where'd you get it and was it simply pot luck that it happened to be a 2B? Or was there some way you managed to ensure it was a 2B first?

I was looking to buy a catleap monitor when/if the 100hz oc version comes out.
Could you play at 4:3 aspect ratio at 100hz?
