It overclocks well for air cooling. Hell, it's even overclocked by stock. The MSI probably overclocks better, but it's also a good bit more expensive.

Can someone clear up some things for me? So "overclocking" these monitors is simply a software adjustment? Is it limited by the monitor itself or the GPU? What's with pre GTX680s not being able to do 100Hz+?

Also, is the model with glass super reflective?

Thanks

When overclocking a monitor it's simply setting a custom resolution in Nvidia control panel to do 120hz or whatever you can get to. For AMD cards it's a different procedure. The OC capability is limited mostly by the monitor. Only the "2B" models are able to OC past 67hz. A 680 is the only card that can get to 120hz. Everything else can get to ~100hz.

The tempered glass model should be the same reflectiveness as a regular model.

You'll definitely notice a difference going from 120hz to 60hz. Which would you rather have, smooth movement or hi res? tongue.gif I'd recommend the most basic model, the Yamakasi Catleap Q270 SE with no tempered glass, and no multi input. If you need speakers (which are garbage in this monitor) then go with the Non-SE.

My Catleap came with a single DVI cable o.O? I was under the impression it came with a Dual DVI cable...

Edit: nm, it did come w/ a DL-DVI cable. I confused it w/ a DVI splitter of sorts.

Posted this on the ShiMian page, but might be of interest here.

I have a strange effect on my ShiMian Lite model (pixel perfect).

Got it last week and was praising the quality, but noticed a stuck green dot yesterday. The very odd part is that it's less than a pixel. I found it on a black screen. It was extremely faint, barely noticeable. Putting up an all red screen and using a magnifier, I noticed the green dot as being about 30% the area of the lit adjacent red sub-pixel. It also had an irregular shape unlike the lit red which has a vertical, sharply defined, rectangular shape.
Anyone has a clue as to what is happening?

All other aspects of the monitor are excellent.

Hey guys,

Two things, anyone with a colorimeter, could you please run it on the catleap and let me know the % of the RGB color spectrum it's capable of displaying?

Second, I'm looking to buy a desk mount bracket from Monoprice. What sort of a screw size/layout does Catleap have? How about any of the other Korean displays?

Thanks!

can you recommend a GPU & cable (the GPU need to work with my 300 w power supply )
thank again ...

For cables are reasonable price:

I would try a new cable first and once the display works. Then I would look at a ATI HD 7750.

Color gamut on my Catleap, since they use the same LG panel it should be almost identical to the Apple Cinema Display 27" if you want a comparison.

It is a VESA 75mm mount so pretty much any modern stand will work. You will need to open your monitor and that will void your warranty, forewarned is forearmed!

On the Achieva Shimian, they rate it at about 74.8% adobe color space... A very basic analysis and comparison done here:http://newcomputerbuild.com/tag/color-gamut/ Better than most, but not as good as the best... 

 

As for the stand, yah, VESA mount, but be careful getting to it. Dig around in the threads on here for details... 

 

Edited to change the link for a review, as the other one was a really poorly plagiarized version that came up in google first.. ;)
