Yes, some of those monitors overclock past 75 Hz. Linus overclocked his sample up to 85 Hz for example.

Other than that DO NOT use the FreeSync version with a Nvidia card, the TFTCentral review of the monitor too revealed that Nvidia cards have a frame skipping problem with it. And Acer never got back to them, so we can assume they haven't fixed the issue yet. Also Adaptive-Sync is not supported by Nvidia (as PCM2 already mentioned) so it would be a waste of money together with the frame skip issue.

Ok, thanks for the info and much appreciated. Just placed an order with Amazon and should get it sometime next week. Can't wait to try it out on the new Star Citizen 2.1.2 patch.

IIRC he admitted that he did not check for frame skipping. I doubt his reached that without since on my unit and every other non G-SYNC model I've tried it happens at 76Hz on the dot, if it even gets that high.

Oh, I wasn't aware of this. Thanks for the update.

Thanks man.

Looks like I'll be putting a couple 970's and waterblocks up for sale soon!

Anyone return their X34 outside of the standard 14-30 day returns?

My coil whine seems to be irritating me more / getting worse... What are my options? How long does a return with Acer take? I cannot really afford to have no monitor for more than a few days. I would just like an X34 without coil whine. But how long will this take?

Is it genuinely considered a fault by Acer? They have washed their hands of the scan lines it seems, but regards coil wine I wonder what their position is on this?

Its not fast. You will need a spare monitor. It varies though. I have seen some get exchanges within 1 1/2 week, some up to a couple months.

Does anyone know what the size of the power socket is on the X34? I purchased a new power supply for it and it has a different sized plug on the monitor end, I can measure I guess but does anyone know the official exact size so I can buy an adapter?

I wouldn't use anything but an acer brick to power your x34. You could replace the cord but I don't think it would be prudent to replace the brick. I cant answer your question although, sorry.

Why do you say that? The brick is the same rating, 19V 7.1A (135W).
