That's kind of what I meant, replacing the TCON with this SLA1 TCON that has 2 cables out to the main PCB. (just like in this kit you linked https://www.ebay.com/itm/PCB-HY-2560...T/123740185646
So, with this $50, I'm getting the TCON + PCB + 2 cables to interconnect them + backlight panel. That looks like the entire setup that can fix my issue + give me overclock capabilities at the same time. This kit even has the same connector to the power button so I wouldn't need to replace it. And if I want to upgrade the main PCB in the future to support DP+HDMI I'll just have to get an SLA1 kit (I just don't know if I'll be able to still OC or not since now we're talking about DP or HDMI).
Am I correct in this? Because if I am, this kit looks like a godsend
, I can even keep my PSU (but now that you mentioned, I'll probably try to test my Overlord PSU in this monitor to make sure it's not the PSU)
About the OC, usually i'd prefer the board with DP, but the OC kit is actually cheaper than the DP kit (and yes, I really care about it, just budget was my concern as I though i'd need to spend $150+ to have it considering the prices I saw in aliexpress, but this kit's total is $50), but when the OC kit is cheaper then yes, I'm likely trying to get it. I also have an Overlord, so I already know how to do it if needed (and I'm really used to the 100hz I can get from it, although I'd be really happy with 96hz from this kit). Luckily for my, I have a 780ti which has an unlocked driver and I can already create custom res if I need.
Finally, just finished testing my Overlord PSU on the Catleap, and the issue persists, it's not the PSU.
