Try swapping out your brick first, since it is the easiest and painless solution... if that doesn't resolve it then it is something more serious. Good luck!

I honestly don't know jack about monitors except that I'm ready to upgrade from my old Samsung 2370 23". Spent all day trying to research what's best for overall image and FPS gaming and the name Catleap kept jumping out at me biggrin.gif

I've read the intial post here (as well as 120.net) and was ready to pull the trigger at Ebay but now Im understanding that all newer models are basically non-overclockable or at least not anything as they were before without pulling out a drill? Hehe, forgive me Im an older gamer so not totally fluent here but the overwhelming response still seems to be "just buy the mutha!".

Should I try to get the original 270 as opposed to 2703 to have a better chance of getting an OC'er or is it just a gamble anyways? Imthinking I'd get one even if left at 60ghz as the resolution just sounds too sexy to pair up with me 680.

Edit: Ive found out that OC capable versions are sold by Overlord but are around $450 while standard models are available at Ebay for almost $100.00 cheaper -not too sure here and gonna hold off until more info.

Your chance is literally zero either way. Go to that other website you mentioned for 120hz if you want to pay extra. Yes, as you said, Overlord.
There should be a sticky about monitors in this forum section somewhere for reference.

just do it dude!!

I got the Q270SE in June from bigclothcraft in ebay and have had no complains whatsoever. I wasnt really looking for an OC one so i just bought it and it came to aprox 360CAD after shipping and import taxes. I have it paired with a gtx 580 and an 2500K at 4.8Ghz and i can run BF3 with no issues all MAXED out and get anywhere from 30-40FPS...i havent played with the AA settings in nvidia inspector. Just whats set in the game which i cannot recall right now. All i know its a sweet monitor and i wish i had the money to buy two more.

The stand is really wobbly so i took it out and put in an MX ergotron arm. The process of doing is is lengthy and you will most likely damage the bezel on the sides from the prying. This doesnt really matter to me because i dont look at my monitor from the side so who cares...
Apparently the 2703 has a better stand.
Good luck and let us know....

Gaming is amazing with it

I need an HDMI version because of my laptop and was looking at these two:

http://www.ebay.com/itm/New-Yamakasi-Catleap-HDMI-1-4a-Q271-LED-2560x1440-WQHD-S-IPS-Monitor-HDMI-/140808076813?pt=Computer_Monitors&hash=item20c8d0be0d

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Yamakasi-Catleap-Q270-Multi-DVI-HDMI-VGA-27-LED-2560X1440-S-IPS-Monitor-/160901773832?pt=Computer_Monitors&hash=item25767e3a08

One is new, one is used. My main question though would be regarding HDMI. Has anyone used HDMI with the Catleap's? I heard there were a lot of advantages to the Q271 including HDMI 1.4a, a better stand, exposed VESA, etc. Just wanted to see others thoughts before springing for one. I am doing web design for school and realized that it was probably smart to spring for one of these.

I had the exact issue when I first got mine. It turned out in MY case that the video card fried so I bought a GTX 660, and RMA'ed the fried card simply because I didn't want to wait for the turn around time. I got the new card and it worked perfect.

I followed the guide in the OP.
After I took the frame apart I realized the 2300 does not have Vesa mounting holes so considering how lite it is, the Arch is strong enough to hold it in place. Just with a drill and some measuring I could mod it in a breeze. Pics will show better! Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)








I might have to do that.... thanks!

I posted this in a thread that I started, but wanted to post this here also to get some more advice.



After a day of going back and forth between the different 2560x1440p Korean monitors and even monitors sold on websites like newegg, I have decided to get this particular one from this particular seller.

http://www.ebay.com/itm/New-Tempered-Glass-27-Yamakasi-Catleap-2703-LED-IPS-2560x1440-WQHD-Monitor-/150853378334?pt=UK_Computing_ComputerComponents_Monitors&hash=item231f8fe11e

What does everyone think?

I still don't quite understand what I need as far as an adapter goes to plug into my US socket....could someone link a suggestion to me?

I also don't think this one has speakers, so I am going to have to get some speakers. I will start to look at Newegg, but am not going to spend alot on this.

FYI, the tempered glass is just a piece of glass over the normal monitor frame, and some people, at least early on, complained of dust being behind the glass. Since it's glued on, it's a bit of a PITA to remove.

The cord you need is a basic cord from a PSU. or other monitor, and looks like this:

I don't have any spare ones of those...is there a universal name it goes by? So the ac input on the monitor itself is the same, just the end that plugs into a wall is different?


EDIT FOR DEMENTED: You mentioned the tempered glass. Is it a negative? Or can I find one cheaper without it? I am getting this one because it is the cheapest catleap that I saw.
