I have my 670's coming in today. Won't have a 2B monitor for a couple more weeks though.
Perfectly fine with 100hz though.
Anyone know of a stand with height adjustment so the monitor sits as close to the desk as possible? Clearance issues with my desk. (No choice of furniture atm... Military)
Might just have to take the stand off and figure out a way to get it to stay put without one.
Wall mount probably out of the question as well.

The one that I just posted has pretty good height adjustment. Can almost lower all the way to the desk I believe.

Ah! Forgot to mention, Clamp ones won't work also.
Has that flimsy wood/cardboard combination covering the back of the desk. Would be perfect for a wall mount if it was actual solid wood.
Will throw up a picture when I get back to the room.(If I remember)

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.

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?

 

You could have loose wiring inside the unit itself - not unheard of.  See the first page stickies under troubleshooting.  I would wait until you hook up to a known good setup before opening her up though.  Post back please.

That's your choke - there are pics in the OP of the issue.  Most of these came without the proper TCON cover from the factory so you get one of two things happening - 1. Choke buzzes against the metal plate and/or 2. the second choke hums as well.  You can either epoxy or trying covering/insulating the tops of the TCON PCB chokes from the cover.  I tried the insulation method and it cured my humming fine (which in my case meant that the LOWER choke (the one on the corner of the TCON PCB) was the noisy one.

You have two monitors connected to to the 7970 ?

Have you tried only connecting the Catleap to the 7970 ? (Just one monitor with the D-DVI cable)

Well BSOD has nothing to do with plugging in a monitor.  You clearly have driver issues or some other issue.

I read the FAQs and also that we are not allowed to post Ebay links.

One of these monitors for around 450-490 USD shows Display Port as well. Which model is that?
post #3870 of 11297
Did anyone else experience getting a power brick that is not rated for 110-220V? The one i just got came with a LOADUS power brick that goes from 190-220V... How do I get an replacement?
