We're not pumping twice as many electrons through the monitor. The more current flows, the more electrons flow through the cable.
And increasing the frequency will most likely not increase the current, and if then only slightly.
The chip itself on the PCB is most likely running with it's own crystal on a fixed frequency and wont be influenced by a changed refresh rate.
Overclocking might make it hotter since it needs to process and send data to the panel more often but that is a minor change.
A heatsink wouldn't do a thing to overclocking, better isolation of the cables probably would.
Remember, you're overclocking the display and not the display PCB. You're just letting it display more frames in a second.
Please reread this article: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Image_persistence
And what do you mean about the display "crashing"? Do you mean that guy which got all these lines on his one?
That monitor probably didn't go into power saving mode and started displaying crap since it got no input signal.
I've never experienced this and I run mine at 96 Hz all the time.
The display controller doesn't have any problems in my eyes.
Oh and this panel doesn't use PWM light dimming for anyone interested.
Would be cool if this were a 10-bit panel, but you can't have everything.
So you're trying to tell me that increasing frequency while leaving everything else the same does NOT increase heat or electron flow, and that heat is not a detriment to overclocking computer electronics? Ever take a high school physics class, or overclock some piece of computer hardware before?
As for the PCB being unaffected by overclocking the panel, how exactly do you speculate that new data reaches the panel at a higher frequency than the PCB feeding it operates, unless the PCB is in fact being overclocked as well? The panel is only capable of displaying what it is given. It can't create new frames out of nowhere.
Who exactly is talking out of their ass here. My money is on the guy who just joined OCN and somehow think's he's the grand master of LCD technology because he opened his bezel, and has owned a few monitors before.
If you think you know better, prove it. Take some temps, do some testing, or provide a definitive article debunking the theory. Contribute some actual data or stay out of it and let the more inquisitive people test things that might actually help everyone in this thread.
And no, your wiki page doesn't count. All that says is that the burn in effect occurs. Great. It doesn't say anything at all about why it is happening in the first place in this particular monitor.Edited by Zero4549 - 5/1/13 at 5:49pm
