can you post a link to the software for overclocking the monitor. I downloaded to two programs that are suppose to work but it seems one of the folders was missing a second utility to enable test mode.

I can do you one better.

I'll link you to the "[Official] The Korean PLS Monitor Club (Qnix & X-Star)"

It is the same exact panel as the Asus PB278Q, just with a passthrough board (so slightly worse overclocks for you asus users). I had one for a while but am now thinking about switching to the PB278Q.

Check out the section "Overclocking guide and help"

I'd also recommend the "Good Wallpaper websites" one, as well as "Color Calibration Profiles (ICC) and How to install them"

Anything over 60 and I get frame skipping.

Thanks, man. Got my PB278Q up to 85Hz, which is great for the 290X. Definitely notice the difference in games. I detect a very slight strobe effect in Windows over the default 59.95Hz, but I can live with it for the extra refresh rate.

Anyone in this thread who knows the Asus PB278Q well, who can aid me with something? Again, you need to be very familiar with the monitor inside and out.

Does anything in those instructions fix the frame skipping issue? Most people in this thread experience frame skipping when they push these over 60, granted it is the first time I looked over that other thread and instructions that were posted.

Are there any software that tests the monitor's condition? Software similar to stresstests when overclocking like Furmark, Heaven etc?
I am considering buying a used monitor, and i don't want to leave with a monitor that has issues.

Is frame skipping obvious, or only visible to tools? Because everything looks smooth at 85Hz, I can detect no hitching or skipping of any kind. Just that faint white strobe at the desktop, which may actually be distracting enough for me to go back to 60Hz after all.

It was very noticeable to me during gaming so I just went back to 60hz. I didn't follow anything in that other thread with the instructions though.
