PB278Q 27" refresh rate

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I plan on buying this monitor soon http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=24-236-294&SortField=0&SummaryType=0&Pagesize=10&PurchaseMark=&SelectedRating=-1&VideoOnlyMark=False&VendorMark=&IsFeedbackTab=true&Page=3#scrollFullInfo, and i see one feedback the guy is saying he overclocked the refresh rate to 85hz saying you just need an EVGA card and the precision X software. How do you do this and is it dangerous to the monitor?

Thanks for the videos, but do we know how risky doing this is? What are the chances of it causing damage to the monitor? and on the tool it says it is for "supported monitors only, do not use this tool if you are unsure if your monitor is supported." Is there actually any "supported" monitor list? I don't know if my screen is but it worked at a setting of 75hz from 60ghz.

As with any overclocking, it can be risky. If you push the monitor to hard you can cause it to break. The PB278Q is designed to run at 60Hz, anything above that has a risk of causing damage. On a lot of monitors you can push up to 75Hz without too much risk, IMO it's not worth doing.

Alright, i tried increasing the hz on the screen i have right now and the increase that is stable is not a big enough increase for the risk. Thanks.
