You are correct. Tested the scan at http://www.testufo.com/#test=frameskipping and it is skipping; updates are smoother at 60Hz.

Damn. Thought we had something there. Ah well.

If you actually do it correctly, it WILL register the higher refresh rates correctly.

Clexzor is spewing lies, you can absolutely overclock a multi-input monitor... I have done it with 4 or 5 different monitors.

What is with people and saying things as fact when they have no idea what the heck they are talking about...

Why don't you go back to your little Korean thread and post worthless comments there?

I don't own a Korean monitor, I have the Asus one. Korean Panels are overclockable, thats why I suggested to sell the Asus one and get a Korean panel.

Well, I followed the CRU instructions exactly per the Korean overclock guide posted above, and had a solid 85Hz refresh rate. So yes, at that point the monitor is overclocked. However, I definitely see frame skipping at rates above 60Hz.

Perhaps if you post a non-frameskip camera shot for an overclocked PB278Q from the http://www.testufo.com/#test=frameskipping test you can clear up some of the confusion!

Well since your a fellow ASUS owner I don't hate your comment. I thought you were just being a dumb troll lol. I could really careless about overclocking a monitor I just wanted to do it for SH#$% and giggles. I've got no qualms with this monitor its amazing.

Nah man, I've read about those Korean Panels being easily overclockable to 120Hz and thought I'd throw it out there as an option. And yeah the Asus one is a fantastic monitor, no complaints here.

You should look at resolution, pixel density, panel type, quality control, brightness range, and warranty. All of which this monitor are doing well at.

I have tried the QNIX and since you are a newbie and probably won't be overclocking it, definitely get the ASUS PB278Q

Appreciate the reply man, if overclocking is easy to do I'd consider it - but when I click on the guide in the korean monitor thread nothing shows up so I can't see what it consists of frown.gif
Also, the only thing I'm scared of is if the monitor stops working later down the track (ebay returns are 99% of times hopeless)

It's not really clear how to get in safe mode in Windows 8, but i'll get that.

How to verify before the reboot if the resolution is supported with CRT?

Don't want to repeat the same problem with 85 and 75 hz

Not spewing lies bro....yes you can OC multi input panels....but not the pb 278q I dotn really care what you think lol these 278's do not overclock properly without skipping frames so believe what you want lol

I own the pb279q and love it but not for gaming....it was cool at first but once u try 1440p at 96hz or so its just not comparable anymore....
