Is this one overclockable to 80 or 100hz? The catleap cannot.

You can't do DL-DVI -> HDMI; that doesn't work. The physical connections are not the same.
You might be able to do HDMI -> SL-DVI; it's been done, but it was barely stable. It is a very high overclock of a single DVI link. I would not recommend this.

Thanks kevin.

I did more research and now i am worried about something called scaling.

I have a GTX 660 and a ASROCK H61M-DGS mainboard in the pc. I want to use a korean display as primary monitor and only monitor.
Will the monitor boot up correctly? Or will it not start up and not detect the monitor?

It should work fine. Key word being should. Some people have had more trouble than others getting BIOS to show, but I've never had problems - even with so-called "unsupported" cards.

Feel so much better as green-sum has replied stating that the minitors come with a year warranty all that needs to be done is post it

On a another note i feel like my power problems could be from a power surg or that the auto upscaler strains the internal psu which in turn popped so if anyone with the hdmi version should be carefull (mine broke while on xbox)

I'm really leaning towards getting a Shimian with tempered glass. These pictures of it look amazing. smile.gif How long does it usually take to ship from Korea to the US (California, specifically)?

What other Korean IPS monitors are there? I'm aware of the the Achieva Shimian, Yamakasi Catleap, and the CrossOver 27Q. Any other brands I haven't looked at yet? Which ones have options for tempered glass?

I've had my Shimian LITE since September. Until about a week ago it has been flawless. I have an Asus Sabertooth x58 motherboard. The bios screen has always shown on boot. About a week ago I noticed the bios screen flicker on/off while booting. It did this a couple of times until it got to the Windows screen and everything was fine. While flickering the light on the front turned from blue to pink (not red) several times. I didn't think much of it until today. I put a new storage hard drive in my pc and had to reboot a couple of times to change bios settings. Now the same thing happens as soon as my desktop is visible after boot. The screen flashes on/off several times and the light goes from blue to pink. I'm starting to worry that this is the beginning of a bigger problem.

thoughts?

What's the difference between S-IPS and IPS-I? I thought tempered glass is build quality add-on not panel quality.

Is there a version of the Shimian with tempered glass and a HDMI input?
