This concept is known throughout the entire internet on every popular forum.

So the answer is YES if you go back and actually read the information that has already accumulated in this thread you will find your answer in glorious detail repeated dozens of times.

Yet the question still goes unanswered, nor is my question addressed in the OP.

Wow you have to be kidding. The OP has an "overclocking step-by-step guide" and the information regarding VRAM needs is answered almost 20 times which i just found in a search for "memory requirements at 1440p".

NEW MEMBERS:
PLEASE READ INFO BELOW!
ESPECIALLY THE FAQ!!
Many of your questions can be answered here, rather than being asked about again and again in the thread only to be referred back to here, the Original Post (OP).

Yet still no answer. OCN used to be willing to answer quesitons. Who cares if it has been asked before? I don't want to dig through 400+ pages. I want some personal opinions and experiences from people on here. That's what the forums are for. I'm looking for some results from actual users. I already said I know it can be OC'd. I'm looking for results from actual owners.

FROM THE OP

Q: Does the monitor overclock?
A: Yes. To see the various overclocks (OCs) reported, look to the expandable section below titled "Members List Form Submission Trends, Analysis" and look for the pie graph of reported OCs.

Q: Can I buy a monitor that will OC to 120 Hz, guaranteed?
A: No, not as far as I know. There are theories that monitors sold by certain sellers have a better chance to OC higher, but it is considered to be random.

Step 1 Update your video card drivers to the newest version.
If using a crossfire (multi AMD GPU) setup, than multiple crossfire bridges must be used. For example, if crossfiring two GPUs than two crossfire bridges must be used.

Note: If you have a 200 or below series Nvidia card (ex: GTX260, etc.), reports suggest that an OC above 96 Hz is not possible. Time for an upgade! smile.gif
Step 2 Single and SLI Nvidia card setups should patch their Nvidia driver to overclock (OC). The patch is more unnecessary for SLI card owners, but its recommended for all Nvidia owners to use. [CLICK] The patch is found here.

AMD/ATI card owners need to patch their driver as well. The patch used is different than the Nvidia one used above. [CLICK] Instructions and patch can be found here.
Step 3 Both the Nvidia and AMD clock patch should include an executable which puts your computer in and out of Test Mode. You need to put your computer in Test Mode and keep it in Test Mode as long as your monitor is OCed. Restart your computer. In the lower right corner it will say "Test Mode" as long as it is on. I've read there is a way to make the text go away.
Step 4 Nvidia and AMD:
Download and install the [CLICK] Custom Resolution Utility (CRU) here.

To use the utility above: click the stock 60Hz profile, press the copy button, make a new profile and then use the paste button. This has created a mirror image of the stock profile. Next, just edit the refresh rate number at the bottom (should be 60 originally) to something like 96. Here is some explanation + pictures of the window that pops up to edit your custom refresh rate in CRU [CLICK]. This makes a refresh rate profile for your computer of 96 Hz. Once that's done, reboot your computer can go into your computer settings (catalyst control center for AMD, and Nvidia control panel for Nvidia) and choose the refresh rate that you just created.

If having bad OC results, it may help to have the "LCD Reduced" enabled in CRU. Also, in CCC enable Reduce DVI Frequency.


And yes i did actually have to search for the VRAM requirements which it has been proven that 2GBs is sufficient without excessive AA.

None of which answers my question. Thanks, though. Asking is a lot easier than digging through threads. That's what the forum is for.

This isn't about guilt. I asked a yes or no question, and I got a jerk response.

Just about everyone who really has contributed cares if it has been asked before because we continue to dilute the page further and further which makes this information harder and harder to find. And i also think you mis-understood me, it is not a jerk response it is a corrective response. This is why we have such a detailed OP. Plus you say that OCN "used" to answer your questions, well we still are it just has already been answered.

Also it might be a good thing to include in the OP about VRAM requirements, just an idea.
post #4888 of 25888
OK well lets back up. Here is your exact post:

"""""
I'm thinking of getting one of these to replace my 24" 120hz Asus. I'm just curious if these can easily be OC'd to 120hz, and whether or not I should ugprade to a 4gb card if I do get one. IUt's a ong thread, and didn't wanna dig through about the overclocking. I honestly have no idea how that works.
"""""

I'm just curious if these can easily be OC'd to 120hz - Overclocking guide and FAQ ---Done

whether or not I should ugprade to a 4gb card if I do get one -- answered with easy search and i actually told you ---Done

I honestly have no idea how that works. -- same as first question ---Done

What has NOT been answered?

I didn't get an answer. I got attacked. Not appreciated. I asked a yes or no question. I didn't get a yes or no answer. That's all I have to say to you. I'll be sure to ask your permission before I ask another question here.
