The risk is you will no longer be able to stand gaming on normal 60 Hz LCDs, or TN panels for their poor viewing angles.

j/k.

These PLS panel OCs are new... risks are the same as OCing the old 2B Catleaps. PCB could fry, PSU could fry. It's an imprecise science, but many have been running their OC Catleaps for about 1 year now with no problems.

Definitely going to try out an OC PLS and compare it with my 2B thumb.gif

Has anyone tried OCing 120 Hz monitors? I have a BenQ XL2420T which is natively 120 Hz. How high could I likely get this to go? I tried setting to 125 with no issues, so I may try going higher. Would there be less risk since the BenQ is already designed to handle 120 Hz?

I have no idea mate.. i think most people in this thread are talking about the QNIX qx2710 which is native to 60hz

Some really bad news guys.

I can't watch GPU accelerated videos any more. I only see a green box in the video frame when i try to play a hardware accelerated video (either in VLC or my browser). The videos work fine with GPU acceleration disabled. Any tips/workaround for this? Are other overclockers facing similar issues?

Anyone take pictures of the boards inside the monitor yet? I'm very curious about this.
post #48 of 199
So we still haven't established if these monitors are safe to overclock? I might be selling my Catleap Q270 in the near future, so I'm looking for another single DVI 1440p monitor. PLS panel and the ability to overclock to 120hz for only $300 definitely puts this in front of the Crossovers, Shimians, ect.

Not really sure how i can test and display results but just finished a few gaming sessions tonight. Dota 2 and Guild Wars 2 ran really well!

I tested in game just to make sure the monitor was actually sitting at 110hz.



I might make a video but all i have is a Galaxy S3 anyone know if that would capture the high refresh rate?
post #50 of 199
I have the Galaxy 3 and you can't really capture the high refresh rate(it's 30 fps recording) but it's noticeable in the video.

Youtube only has a 30 FPS cap too so you're screwed either way.
