Agreed, Im thinking of messaging him to cancle my order since he added that after it was placed, and get it from dreamseller.

Nah. I haven't even taken off all of the plastic. Tomorrow I plan to dismantle my Eyefinity setup, and all of my glorious cable management. Then, since I still have to wait another day to get the stand I ordered, I'm just gonna set it up. Wednesday when the stand comes, the dismantling of the Catleap will begin. wink.gif

I had gently ran a handkerchief along it, and that didn't leave any marks. I'm actually shopping for multi-packs of micro-fiber cloths. I'm so worried about damaging it. smile.gif

NON-OC - as pictured - one cable from DVI PCB to PANEL (the black one is brightness, power panel connectors)


OC - two cables from DVI PCB to PANEL (the white one is brightness, power, speaker connector in my crappy photo), but I think if memory serves the number of wires is about the same - I could be wrong.

The 5th and 6th pictures in this gallery show #1, or the panel pcb which I'm referring to. Again this is all speculation and from the looks of it, it may not even be removable/swappable, and the pcb it's connected to may be different too.

The more I look at it, the more I don't think we can do any modifications to get non-oc to oc.  However, I will still disassemble my OC version to at least have comparison shots.


It seems to me that there are two boards that are different, or at least from what I can tell looking at the pictures I've seen so far.

1. The board connected to the back of the panel itself (small rectangular board).
2. The DVI PCB.

#1 on the non-oc display seems to only have one connector on the panel itself, whereas the oc version has two. Obviously the dvi board would be swappable but I don't know about the other panel pcb at all.

It looks like the board attached to the LCD can be replaced as well. So it might need 2 pieces replaced + cable.

Who knows for sure though.

He also just put up a listing that says "Perfect Pixel" for $100 more.

All of them have a chance of having dead pixels because they are A- grade panels:

http://www.panelook.com/modeldetail_inventory.php?id=4998&pagesize=30&order=dateline&by=desc&inv_general_grade=A-&inv_general_grade=
http://www.panelook.com/modeldetail_inventory.php?id=4999&pagesize=30&order=dateline&by=desc&inv_general_grade=A-&inv_general_grade=

Only A+ grade panels have zero bright dead pixel guarantee.

For $370 USD delivered you cannot expect to get a A+ grade panel. That's what Dell would be using with their U2711 which has zero dead pixel guarantee, scaler, multiple inputs, OSD, warranty, customer service etc. and that is why you pay double the price.

At least some of these sellers allow you to return it for a refund albeit at your own expense.

For people struggling with refresh on Nvidia cards try these timings:

So I ordered one from Green-sum on Saturday, had plenty of stock. Asked him for a tracking number yesterday and in the evening, my time, he told me it was being packed and would have a tracking number for me. Wake up and check my email and now he tells me he doesn't have stock and it will be two more days before he has some. I cancelled the order, I can order from someone else. It's not the delay that bothers me, it's the "I have it in stock, it's being packed and will have a tracking number for you soon" to "sorry, oos, will be two more days" that bothers me. I know we are getting these cheap, but they should be honest about their stock and shipping times, that's all I am saying.

You can try specifically asking for a "2B" model which is capable of higher refresh rates. Chances are they are already sold out.

Wait for a crossover variant review, they may be able to do 100hz as the listed refresh rate is 75hz.

I'm starting to think that maybe the companies fixed the higher refresh rate 'flaw' because maybe it caused damage to the panels. Thus in their 2C models, the PCB was revised and changed to help prolong the life of the monitor.

In other words, I'll still try when I get home to get higher, but even if I can, I probably won't. smile.gif
