post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
alright so i have a ViewSonic VG2228 not really a gaming monitor or anything but i like it and i was wondering what are the dangers in setting a custom refresh rate and or hz rating for my monitor its default res 1080p 60hz and was wondering if there is any real danger in setting it to 1440p at 65hz i have tested the resolution and it works fine but i want to know if there is any danger in running it for long periods of time at a higher rate then what it is made for

Well setting it at a higher resolution won't really work out for you, since it will just show a corner of the screen not the entire thing.

IF your monitor OC's ( most don't ) then go for it. it will just blackscreen and return to default if its unstable.

You've only got 2.07 million pixels not 3.6 million so it doesn't really matter what you set your resolution to, you're not actually going to see those pixels because they physically aren't there smile.gif If it can handle higher Hz then go for that, no danger (other than maybe it burning out from the chip over heating) wink.gif

iv already tested it and it shows the full desktop no issue i just want to know if there is any dangers of using it over time at a higher resolution like will it degrade in quailty or overheat

so basiclly it just scales my desktop down to look smaller then what is actually is but im still getting the same 1080p even when it looks like it is a higher resolution is there a way i can tell? i mean maybe view sonic locked it at 1080p and it is actually 1440p or something idk much about displays and havent ran any over 1080p but i do notice a difference between the 2 on this display

so i guess what it is doing is scaling the 1440p to fit the screen and scaling the desktop to fit and it only appears to be using the resolution iv also tried 1600P and what it does is it cant fit the aspect ratio so it ends up having bezels along the sides but still displays and maxs out around 2720x1536 doesnt like 4k for some reason smile.gif

No matter how high you up the resolution, its still 1080, anything above that will just loose image quality.
