If both of these answers are no, then no, your Catleap is not overclockable.

Yep, both answers are no frown.gif
Thanks for the reply, saved me from breaking my display.

Hello,
I am planning on picking up 3 Catleap's and was hoping to get some confirmation that I would be able to power them off my one Gigabyte 7970?
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814125413

I know I will need the active mDP to DVI-D adapters but my concern is strictly will i have enough sheer GPU power to effectively use 3 Catleap monitors or would I absolutism be required to get another for crossfire or change my GPU entirely?
Thank you

*Edit
My system will be:
Intel Core i5-3570K
Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO
Gigabyte GA-Z77X-UD3H
G.Skill Sniper Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1866 Memory
Gigabyte HD7970 OC edition
Seagate Barracuda 1TB 3.5"
Samsung 840 SSD 120GB

Hey guys i took delivery of my yamakasi catleap q270 yesterday and until now everything has worked great but i just tryed to watch a blu ray on my ps3 and the screen kind of turns its self off the power light stays green and i can hear the movie sound in my headphones but there's nothing on the display. When i eject the blu ray the screen comes straight back on. Is this normal ? or have i gotten a potentially defective screen? Thanks in advance.


edit ive tryed detecting all the available screen settings and that hasn't helped and 1080p movies on the ps3's hard disk play perfectly.

edit 2: I just tryed a dvd and the screen just freaked out it went into power saving mode the green power light started flashing and when i tryed to get the screen to display from the dvi port my pc it wouldnt show that either. I had to go through the menu > misc> initialize for it to start working again.

Surely this isint normal?

Edit 3: just tryed a hdmi(ps3) to dvi cable(monitor) and the blu ray worked played fine so i tryed a dvd and i got the same result the screen goes into what i think is power saving mode.

It may be $2000 but its still a labtop.

As for the adapter you need, 44cmitchell, the amazon "Accell B087B-003J UltraAV miniDisplayPort/DVI-D Dual-Link Adapter" one is the correct adapter. The cheap one will not work.

It being a laptop has nothing to do with it, the ports it comes with has everything to do with it. I bought a display port adapter so it shouldn't be a problem now, I'm pretty sure the monitor is still a DOA. i hooked it up to my friends desktop and it showed that it was connected but nothing displayed on the monitor.



side note to any purchasers. BCC (bigclothcraft) has been amazing dealing with this situation and troubleshooting it. I believe he will exchange it without a problem.

Is there anyway to find out if I have a B series without opening the monitor? My serial number is Q270SE2E1LP0003 if that helps. I looked that serial number up on google and on this forum but no luck.

Did you buy it 8 months ago?
Did you pay ~$600 for it?
If both of these answers are no, then no, your Catleap is not overclockable. a "2B" model.

I noticed that you underlined the overclockable there. I'm assuming you meant that I can only overclock it to 65hz right?

Heh, it's a strikethough, not underlined. (an homage to my previous post about 10 posts up). And yes, you can't get beyond 67hz.

Really though, the "B" series (2B) only means that they were manufactured in February.

Seems like that's the case. I just tried to overclock it using the method on the very first page. It wouldn't let me go past beyond 67hz. Anything above that I would get a bunch of lines on the screen or it would simply would not work.
