30" Inch Yamakasi 300 Sparta 2560x1600 S-IPS Monitor - Page 20

Yes..I used nvidia control for my calibration. Just make sure to keep gamma low to produce the awesome rich color this monitor produces. If u like brightness, just use monitor control setting and turn up.

So stay away from this guy.

yeah well that's what I had to do as well, and that lasted for about 15 minutes, but then the display died altogether. my brick is completely cold when plugged in right now

yeah i run my all my computer and audio current through a $3000 line enhancer/power protection device (Tice Power Block III) as i have expensive tube audio equipment and mine still failed, so that is not the issue I think

My power brick seems ok now that it is sitting on my tower's top exhaust fan, however, I am thinking of pulling it apart and moving the internals into a fan cooled enclosure.

I will probably open the case, rip out the speakers and replace all of the caps with solid dry caps. that should help stabilize any voltage issues internally. For the cost of shipping it back to Worst Korea, I could almost buy another, so I don't really consider this warrantied.

I was also thinking of scavenging or just buying outright a low profile 24V 7A power supply PCB, removing the speakers and sound board, and custom mounting the replacement board internally. A laser printer low voltage supply might do the trick, though a scavenged LCD TV one might have a lower profile.

Could anyone here please tell if their Sparta 300 monitor is recognized by Windows at all? In Device Manager, is your monitor listed as "Generic PnP Monitor", or is it actually detected? If it is could anyone be kind and post the monitor's EDID data?

Is this monitor overclockable? If so, to what refresh rates? Thank you.

So the PSU is in a U shaped steel cage. The sticker side is the bottom of the U and is the hotter side. I circled the MOFSETs in red. This is the component that normally goes poof from overheating. There are 3 attached to the side walls and one that is left in open air(bottom right of 2nd pic). My bad. on 2nd glance that appears to be a rectifier and wouldn't be producing heat.

I don't have a good way to measure heat, but it would be interested to know what each one temps at. If that open air one is getting hot, that may be the one burning out. The components appear to be fairly basic and easy to replace. I think I am going to add a piece of steel on either side of that open air MOFSET and screw it to the side panel. I'm going to take the whole thing and put a heatsink on the bottom and mount it in an aluminum enclosure on it's side with a 24V fan and vent holes.

I also did a quick search and found this as a possible replacement for a little cheaper than the LOADUS one. It's hard to see if the 24V will be at 7Amps for sure and it will need some kind of additional enclosure to isolate the terminals from shorting on stuff around my desk, however it might be possible to rig something up on the back of the monitor where the VESA plate is.

If/when I get around to opening the monitor up, I'll post some pics of the inner workings and let you all know if I find anything interesting.

Thanks a lot for the answer Geneticus. It kind of makes me feel better. I should have found the missing $$$ and bought an HP instead. This monitor is a downgrade from my previous HP 24 inch.

Here are some pics of my desktop with this monitor. wink.gif








I recently also picked up a Hauppauge tv tuner card as well
