88C?

Holy lord.

My Crossfire 6950's don't get near that hot. The hotter card runs at around 65C, the colder runs around 55C on load.

Completely normal for that generation of cards, unfortunately. The GTX 470 actually has a maximum operating temp of 105 Celsius...now would I wanna ever get close to that?? Hell no LOL, but 88 Celsius is expected.

Yea it's definitely on the upper limits but it should work, I think the Catleap was 15.6lbs or something, I forget if I actually weighed it.

There are cheap options at Monoprice.com

I measured the Crossover at 15" height, so 7.5" for half height, this stand should cover it fine with 17" of height, and supports 33lbs. The only thing is it doesn't do rotation, which I kind of like which is why I bought the Ergotron. If you were never going to rotate it, then this stand looks like a good option.

I ended up getting the Neoflex. That quoted stand has spotty reviews from people with monitors ~20lbs while the Neoflex people have been quoted to be using other 27 inch IPS's without issue. It really seems like these are the only two affordable bases (There are others for $100+) out there unless you are purchasing a wall mount or arm..

Thanks for the help!

That aside I decided to also purchase a 120v \ 60hz adapter for this monitor. The supplied adapter scares me. It gets way too hot and after I unplugged my monitor to set it aside until my base comes the adapter smelt of burnt plastic... I don't need my house burning down! hairysmiley.png

Went back to my cheap 24in Acer for a week while I got the wall mount kit. The Acer which has performed well just can't compete as the two monitors exist in different tech brackets. The Crossover is so much better visually and a side by side just is depressing. I'd like to echo the concern on mounting, be careful with the screws. Only the bottom right screw caused a spark, but didn't kill the monitor. I added an extra washer between the plate and screw for some margin of error. Otherwise looks great.

Can anyone who owns the 2720MDP GOLD LED share input lag and gaming experience?
post #847 of 6398
Sorry cancelled the 2720mdp was scared of getting the original ad board which was faulty and is being recalled. Reviews for the newer version were much better.

I just received 2 of these in Korea. Both have a stuck pixel; one is green and near the center and the other is red and near the corner. Luckily, I only paid $250 for each.

Just received my 27q last night. Thanks to all the reviews and commentary here I went ahead and ordered one last Friday, I was pleasantly surprised by how fast the shipping was, though I was more concerned about it arriving in one piece rather than quickly.

Replaced a 1920x1200 26" KDS monitor and a 19" 1440x900 Hanns-G monitor with just this one monitor, and I'm surprised at how well it's working. I thought it'd be a bit harder to adjust to the loss of the second monitor, but it's doing the jobs all rather well due to the high resolution. The picture is just incredibly sharp, I'm quite pleased with the high jump in quality. Haven't seen even one dead pixel so far, but I just got it so I'll just have to see what happens. A slight bluish hue, but it's so slight it's barely noticeable.

I'd remembered reading at one point that the stands were often wobbly, weak, or off level (That might've been on one of the other Korean monitors I'm not sure anymore), but I would totally disagree from what I've got. The rubber grip on the base keeps it firmly planted on my desk, and even with my wobbly desk it barely moves at all. The buttons for brightness/on off being on the back is sort of annoying, but sort of nice in a way that it keeps the front so smooth. I'm already quite quite happy with my purchase.

On a word of note for Linux users, at least from my experience last night setting it up. Nvidia's proprietary drivers did not detect the monitors resolution at all. I was stuck at 640x480 at max on the proprietary drivers, but the open source Noveau driver picked it up just fine. On my GTS 450 I see a performance increase in Linux, but Windows saw a slight performance hit. I don't use Windows for too much, and the few games I do play didn't take a big enough hit to really worry too much about it. I intend on replacing most of my rig as the year goes on, so that shouldn't be too worrying. All in all I'm very pleased with this monitor, and I'm really tempted to pick up a second, but money isn't quite there, and neither is the power of my rig.

So since all these Korean monitors use the same led panel. What difference would it make going with the catleap over these crossover monitors?
