Ok so here I am going to confuse this whole issue of OC-ability on these monitors A LOT
As I posted above I have a completely different panel setup in the new monitor I received today (both are with speakers.) I go to OC this new one - no dice. Nothing works at all above 60. I was trying to OC with all 4 monitors plugged in - see my setup pics below. Unplugging everything led me to a weird outcome that maybe someone with more knowledge of GPUs can answer.
The most powerful card I have in my work system at the moment (I am not ready for my 560 SLI water setup yet) is a GTS 250. Originally, I had no issues OCing my lower monitor (see pics below) and have 4 different custom rates installed.
So here is where it gets a little weird for me. With the new monitor plugged into the second output on the 250 I have no issues (just cannot get above 60 even with all other monitors unplugged) and it shows up just fine - and very pretty. When I plug the new one into the first output (the one I have OCed my older monitor on) the new monitor goes nuts or simply shows all black. Here's my question, when you establish custom refresh rates do they "hold" with the output on the GPU? If so, that would make sense as to why my new monitor will not work in the first output.
So overall here is where I think this is at - at least with what I have in hand - there are two different panel designs (or more) being shipped. One that can be OCed (like the fuzzy pic
above) and one that cannot be OCed (like the clear pic
above). The difference in the two panels? No idea. What I do know for sure is they use two completely different plugs and boards
. The monitor I can OC has dual plug-ins and the monitor I cannot OC has a single plug-in. Of course, we won't know for sure until we get a bunch of people opening their monitors to check.
