Why not get one for your main gaming build then use your 25" for when you are modding?

It's me again. Monitor started shutting off again, so I cracked her open to find that a SMD capacitor (C42L) has a bulge. Probably caught a voltage spike from the old brick. Going to drop a new cap in and I'll report back.

Anyone that wants to run triple Yamakasi monitors, i would use GTX680'S over 7970's Ive just changed to 680's and this has fixed all the screen tearing, but the big thing i have noticed is with the AMD cards the screens were burning my eyes out when looking at web pages etc but for some reason this isn't happening with the Nvidia cards..

Really like the one i have now but its only 25" I would love to see what those high resolutions look like on a single Monitor. If the eye can even tell a difference because it looks damn good on the monitor i have now. How much better can it really look?
Really wish i could see one in real life!!
I bet i will own one eventually because i cant stay out of this thread.I keep getting drawn back in.
Going to research some more on them smile.gif
Take care guys and thanks for the info.

If i were to do it all over again, I wouldnt get one until these monitors have PCB's made. I had mine for a week (broke) and now im back to my old 22in Samsung. EVERYTIME I turned on the catleap I would pray for it to work or that nothing would happen.

you get what you pay for, I would rather pay 500 and have peace of mind that these things are reliable.

Quick question guys, just got my 27" Catleap Q270 (speakers), I haven't bought my GPU yet still kinda undecided - 3570k with Intel HD4000 integrated graphics til I get one. I plug it in (bought a new dual link DVI cable) and get the green flashing light, I'm sure its safe to assume that its just not supported.

Would it be suggested that I run over to a bestbuy and just grab a 560ti or something cheap to test to make sure my monitor is working properly? Or just assume it works fine? (would then return said 560ti or w/e).

On that note if anyone wants to through out GFX Suggestions I'm waffling between waiting for the 1GHz 7970's, the EVGA 680 FTW 4GB, some 680 with a custom PCB so I can overvolt it, some random 680, buy a 7970 now, or try to find a 670?

I'm not too worried about the price differences, just don't want to spend more if its not really advised (would plan on adding a 2nd card ~year down the road) and then replacing the cards 2-3 generations later depending on how well they hold up.

Get the multi model that has HDMI/DVI/VGA and can support lower resolutions. You won't worry about the input lag since you're not so much of a gamer thumb.gif

I ordered the New YAMAKASI CATLEAP Q270 SE 27" LED 2560X1440 WQHD DVI-D Monitor *Perfect Pixel from green-sum on Monday afternoon. I got it on Thursday afternoon. I am from Toronto, Canada. He put the monitor at $150 usd and I got charge $20 tax & $10 broker fee.

However, I am extremely happy with the purchase, I did get a pixel perfect monitor. Not even a dead pixel or stuck pixel. The extra $55 is worth it for me. Now I am waiting for the 2b model to come back and I will probably pick up another one to complete my setup. Gotta push my new GTX 670.

Has anyone else got Nvidia surround to overclock these monitors, I'm not big up on the overclocking side, all i did was overclock one monitor then reset my surround setup and the 100hz refresh rate option was still visible in settings so i used it and all looks OK, in games if i set vsync on they sit at 100fps does this mean its working on all 3 screens smile.gif) Thanks
