Yeah, did you follow the picture from the first post? http://cdn.overclock.net/7/73/539x541px-LL-739a9b10_9.jpeg

When I first did it, it was super blurry at 2560x1440 then I adjusted everything to look like that picture from the first post and now its super clear.

BTW: Q270 shouldn't have HDMI in, so you are using an adapter?

Oh I meant to say Q270 Multi. I'm just using HDMI straight to the monitor. No adapters

also if you have a vga cable you can do it to with the multi model you just need to turn down the the refresh rate to 30Hz biggrin.gif

Received my catleap from the seller greensum today.

Regular no perfect pixel monitor and I have to say I got super lucky. No dead pixels, no dead stuck pixels, backlight is slightly brighter in the right corner but other than that monitor is perfect.

Awesome seller received the monitor in 3 days.

Got my catleap today and max payne 3 and battlefield 3 look amazing on ultra with the max resolution, my gfx card is the gtx 680 4gb. Only one problem I have is that I am not sure if it's the calibrations fault or me not being used to led but the whites seem very gray. I am using the calibrations provided on the first page, what calibration settings are the best?

So I received my 2nd monitor from BCC with super fast delivery (ordered on Sunday). I wasn't as lucky with the 2nd one as there is just one stuck pixel in the upper left quadrant out of the entire display. Not too bad. I'm hoping it might get "unstuck". As some others have had doubts but I have an eVGA GTX 680 and use only the HDMI plug and run at a full 2560x1440 w/ audio. If you read the wiki HDMI 1.4 does support this resolution without any issue. It's either your graphics card or your cable that's the issue. Both of the received monitors works at the full resolution without any issue. No custom resolution or anything needed. It worked right out of the box w/o any changes required.


Here are some pics.

I wanted to reuse the power/HDMI cable from my PC so I had to put it sideways. Behind that you can see the existing monitor on the ergotron.

I'm super stoked about getting a monitor with such a high res, as a month ago I'd have thought such an acquisition would cost at least $750. Well, that's all I've got to say for the moment. I'll post again once I get it. Cheers!

haha just like me good ol 3670, even overclocked at same rate 3.6

Nope, I just set the timing settings to "cvt reduced blanking" and it worked out.

I say they are false advertising.
And you're trying to tell me these discarded Dell monitors beat the giants of the industry to the market with HDMI that can do 1440p?
Apple loves simplicity, but yet they haven't been able to get their Retina displays to run 2560 x 1440 HDMI yet...
So while it is, by the technical standards possible to run such a resolution, all monitors are internally limited for some reason, bandwidth most likely.

 

You where saying ? biggrin.gif

However, I can't tell if its better than DVI since I didn't really know how to set it. I just put whatever it suggested to put on the first post under how to OC with nvidia. I use those resolution settings.

So my Catleap monitor just came in. It's got no dead pixels but it does have a bit of a light leakage / viewing angle problem. What I'm curious is what would this problem be classified as. It's not exactly light leakage as its very uniform but as soon as you move to a angle that's looking down on the bottom right corner, it gets bright. Straight on, it's fairly good. Is there such things as viewing angle problems?








Other than that, my monitor's perfect. Any thoughts about this problem?
