Yamakasi Catleap Monitor Club - Page 385

post #3841 of 11304
I've been research brand name monitors for some time now when I ran across an article about Catleaps and other "off brand" monitors. I am really intrigued but I am wondering if I have the hardware necessary to run 2-3 of these. I am running a single SAPPHIRE Radeon HD 6870 1GB with 2 DVI and 1 Displayport. I would need to get an adapter for the Displayport > DVI but other than that would this work? Also, where do you buy these? i just don't have a ton of time to go through 384 pages in this thread.

Forgive me if this is full of grammatical errors or I forget something. I'm typing this out on my phone as my ISP chose now of all times to go out.

I've been lurking in this thread for a while and finally decided to buy one of these awesome monitors. However, I seem to get a black screen on my monitor no matter what I do.

I have downloads and installed the latest drivers, (clean intallation) tried two different cables ( each gives the Same result one from mono price and one that came in the box)

The monitor appears to be recognized and I can change the resolution with displayfusion, but I have a solid green light and a black screen.

I am using a mid 2009 MacBook pro in windows mode with a mini display port to dual dvi adapter from mono price. The video card is a 9600 GT, but I have done some reading on this and I believe that the configuration is sound.

Could I have a monitor with faulty wiring? Any easy way to troubleshoot that?

Thoughts?

Try hooking it up with a pc with a dedicated gpu, one which is supported per the eBay listings.

I have to say, at 100Hz it's fine, but at 120Hz the monitor squeals ever so slightly on all white pages.
post #3845 of 11304
is 120hz worth setting over 100hz? Can you really feel, "notice" the difference between 120hz vs 100hz?

I'm working on getting a hold of another computer to test it on. But until then any other suggestions?

looking at the spec page for my computer it is supposed to be able to handle a external monitor up to 2560x1600 so I really don't think its my computer.

Are you using an active displayport adapter?

I personally don't notice, so I'm sticking at 100Hz.

Same here! I can't tell over 60-120Hz on a 1440p screen maybe it don't make as big a difference like 1080p TN panels ??
