It probably doesn't have anything to do with whether or not a website is utilizing sound but instead the color intensity of the webpage. The more intense the color the more power it draws. The larger the power draw the more pronounced the hum in the speakers. Everything is plugged into the UPS so the only piece of the puzzle that is questionable to me is the actual monitor power supply. I'm not an electrical engineer so I don't know if this is the case for sure but it is my best guess. Anyone else have any ideas? Could be something with the monitor or maybe the mount causing issues?

In order of things I would try:

New power cable,
Try plugging it into a different socket/power strip/UPS
Try a different DVI cable
Try a different adapter
Open the monitor up and take a look inside at the mounts and grounding screws etc...
Ask for a replacement

Does anyone with both the B model and a newer model catleap? I'm curious to see the boards which I believe are the same circuit board. If we could figure out what components are different, we could create an "upgrade" kit for likely cheap (~$20 I'd guess).

Ask for a replacement

1. I've gone from a powerstrip to a UPS with little or no change
2. I have switched from the included DVI cable to one from
3. Haven't tried this yet. I have to get one with the correct connector
4. I've opened the monitors and everything seems fine.

Can people who have dead pixels post some pictures of it? I don't have much experience with dead pixels so I don't know if its noticeable or not. My catleap is on a plane rite now and hopefully it'll come by tomorrow and I'm worrying too much to wait for it to come lol.

LOL

They have been trying to sort that out on the other site (Google search for a site with yamakasi 120Hz)

 

Not as easy as you think, boards are very different and the connectors as well, also will not be cheap (most likely around $125 to $ 150 )

 

 

But you are very welcome to try tongue.gif thumb.gif  Think there is pictures of the PCB's in the OP of this thread of the OC version and non-overclock version, if not, then on the other site. (120Hz)

Thanks for that info... yeah, that's a big difference in boards... guess the question will be, what can we buy these boards for in a group buy scenario... I didn't want to spend the extra $200+ now for waiting for a 120hz, so I ordered the regular 270se... but if the price was right ($100 or so) I'd possible swap out the boards...

No one reads the OP - sigh.

Exactly.  And as I have suggested time and again - don't go looking for defects!  I have not read a single post from someone who said - "love the monitor, but I noticed the dead pixel in the lower right corner while reading OCN articles."  Could it happen?  Sure.  But 1-5 dead out of 3.6 million?  Tough to find if you don't hunt for them.  My mantra on the dead pixel deal - Ignorance is bliss!

And that is only the difference between 2Bs and 2Cs - you should see the current PCBs.  I cannot speak about a group buy scenario since that could get this thread closed down.  Actually, I am forbidden from discussing the PCBs at all.
