Yep its alternating. 23.5, then 22.6 back and forth. The good one puts out 23.5V solid.
I'll note too, this was the PSU that was running 125-128 degrees F. The other monitor was running about 122 degrees.

I adjusted the brightness yesterday which seems to of lowered the temperature a little, but I didn't get a chance to put a infrared meter on it yet.

I have been reading about the folks with hot adapters, mine is warm but has not gotten anywhere near that hot. Your seller should get you a replacement or there are some posts with alternatives just down thread (last few days).

If your country uses a 220/240/similar voltage system, it is highly likely your power bricks for these monitors will run cooler than for those of us on 110/120V systems. Running at low brightness setting also helps reduce adapter temperature.

Just ordered mine yesterday. Can't wait till it gets here. Do I need just any DVI dual link cable or do I need a high performance one that can transfer a certain Gb/s?

Thanks for all the info so far guys.

I fired off a note to green-sum. I guess worst case I find another 24V 5A adaptor and work out putting this connector / cable on it.
I checked my other PSU and its temperature has reduced a bit from where it was when I hooked them up. Originally 122F and now its reporting 85F.
Suspect like ElevenEleven mentioned its due to me reducing the brightness.

Has anyone had to replace the connection on a different PSU yet and if so, is there any color code to it so I can tell +Pos from -Neg?


colt54qg, the dual link DVI cable that comes with the monitor will work. Its a tad short in my opinion so I had ordered some 6ft cables from monoprice. I run 2 monitors so trying to get the 2nd monitor more off to the left or right was starting to max out the stock cables so I had to shift everything to the left towards the computer.

Make sure your video card supports 2560x1440 ( or 1600) max resolution and has a DVI Dual Link output.

First test - connect it to another computer system if you have access OR if you have access to another GPU - try the other GPU (I don't think it is the card).  I have run all my Cats on some pretty low level cards without issue (and have run them all on a single 560 card and 560s in SLI.)

Solid green means signal so if you don't get an image on another computer or with another GPU, then you have two choices:  return it or open it up.

You could have the DVI PCB signal wire issue where it isn't seated properly in the panel PCB (if you open it you will see how the panel PCB can get disconnected or not be properly attached at the factory.)

Report back.

My monitor works now. I had to open it up (which was incredibly difficult) and noticed that a very thin and short wire that extended from the top of the screen was disconnected. This wire/cable did not look like any in the pictures I've seen throughout the forum. Anyway, I plugged the wire into a slot labeled CN1 on the PCB. I had an extra inch or so of free wire to work with so the process took a good 30 minutes trying to get it plugged in.

Looks absolutely beautiful, though! Thanks for the help!

Great thread, but its huge, i tried searching it for an answer, sorry if i missed it.. Here is my issue..

I just got my q270 from green-sum. It has just the one Dual DVI port. I got a dual link dvi-d cable from amazon. I plugged it up to my XFX 6950(flashed to 6970) ..
I get an image, but its all blurry/pixelated at 2560x1440. The lower i go in resolution, the more legible text becomes. But still, the picture is "off", the resolution just doesnt look right.
Colors and all look great though..

Here is a crappy pic from my nexus. It shows the text at 2560x1440 . Any ideas?
