I currently have a Yamakasi Catleap but it's locked at 59hz. Should I buy a B series board online and switch it with my current board and overclock my catleap to 120hz or 110hz? Is it generally safe for my monitor if I want it to last for 2-3 years at least?

But what bothers me is the contact information " If you have any questions about your order please contact us at yamakasiusa@gmail.com or call us at Monday - Friday, 8am - 5pm PST. "

Funny enough the phone number is not listed anywhere, and they do not respond to emails sent to their support mail (at least not within a couple days so far). I'm wondering of this site has a reputation of being a scam, and if I should reverse the charge to my account.

Take a look at the about us:

"To all of you, from all of us at Magento Store - Thank you and Happy eCommerce!

Somethings not right....

Did a search with the better business bureau, no results. You might want to do some searching, contact your credit card and you could always file a complaint with BBB.

Good Luck

I've only had mine for 8 months or so, but it is still working great and the picture is gorgeous. Mine can OC to ~124Hz, but I keep it at 120Hz when I want FPS gaming uber-ness. You actually have to let the panel warm up before you apply those custom resolution settings to avoid getting a grey screen for 10 minutes.

I believe Overlord computers sells the extreme "B" pcbs, as well as the overclockable "Tempest" 27" IPS monitors. Not sure if 120Hz.net sells just the pcbs by themselves, but they definitely sell the overclockable Catleaps. I got mine from them for $719.00

Oh, I almost forgot, if you get the overclockable pcb or monitor you should also purchase a 24AWG DL-DVI cable, so as to not limit your overclock potential.

Just got a Yamakasi Q270 monitor, i previously had a DELL 2405FPW and you can tell the build quality isnt great on these straight away when compared to a DELL, no OSD, limited setting buttons, unstable stand, and tinny sounding speakers, but the real estate you get from 1440P screen is immense even coming from a 1200p screen. The picture is satisfying to me atm and just try to adapt to it from the DELL...it just looks different some how maybe ill get used to it im not sure, as the DELL is the only LCD monitor i have ever owned and had it for over 6 years so this change to a new LED screen is a bit of a shock....maybe its going from LCD to LED is what im noticing here...will just take some getting used to i guess!? I have a few questions if anyone can assist......

I noticed when i got the monitor i was still using my DVI cable that came with the DELL but upon hooking up the Yamakasi with this DVI cable i was getting the same desktop display 4 times on the screen in each corner, i tried installing the GPU drivers again, changing the screen res but nothing seemed to help, in the end i had to use the DVI cable that came with the Yamakasi which to be fair doesn't seem to be as good quality as my DELL one but seemed to remedy the problem, any ideas why i was getting this display anomaly?

I have tried download some colour profiles and adding them with colour management option in control panel whilst they show up in the 'Profiles associated with this device' list selecting between 2 i cannot see the colour change at all, am i missing something here how do you get this colour profiles to actually work?

Is there a 3rd part stand that fits this monitor as im not 100% confident in the supplied stand.....1 that your able to rotate the display maybe?

Is there a way to tell if my monitor is capable of OverClocking without opening it up?

Im guessing OC these to 120hz drastically shortens the life of these monitor right?
