I agree with Funfordcobra and already said before that I'm not confident with the panel lifespan when overclocked beyond 75hz in the long term.
Remember what happened to those who had Qnix overclocked IPS monitors (LG panel) after 6 months. Mine lasted 7 months before the screen started to flicker + awful scanlines that disappeared once I get back to 60hz.

I already see some people getting screen flickering / multiple screen reboot in games after a month of use with no problem.

Acer X34R1CK users (Freesync) seem to not experience these problems yet.

I guess PG348Q will have the same problems, especially scanlines which is the most annoying X34's defect.

looks like my original was oct new one is sep.. Yeah I doubt the Asus will pan out much better since it's still overclocked even if they're the ones clocking it factory. Might just go to the PG279Q at least I know what I'm getting there

It's going to be the same deal with the Asus if these panels are susceptible to degrading over time, there is no IPS panel rated for 100 Hz in existence right now.

Perhaps Asus will cover it under warranty, but that's just an assumption. The PG348Q doesn't come at 100 Hz out of the box either and is activated by some turbo function. Must be some reason why they did that.

You know all the turbo function does is change refresh rate, without having to go into the OSD, it might be 100hz out of the box

I guess it's a possibility, seems like a useless feature to add then though. I would never want to downclock, if there is a game that doesn't support high refresh rate just limit FPS without changing it on the monitor...

It is what the turbo button does, just look at other monitors, ASUS even says it on the product page.

Ah okay, but then that's no different from the PG279Q. It has a Turbo button as well, and 165 Hz is still considered an 'overclock' when you look in the OSD. The 279Q doesn't come at 165 Hz out of the box either, despite being marketed as a 165 Hz refresh monitor. There's absolutely no mention of an overclock on the Amazon page: http://www.amazon.com/SWIFT-PG279Q-Screen-LED-Lit-Monitor/dp/B017EVR2VM/ref=sr_1_1?s=pc&ie=UTF8&qid=1453512884&sr=1-1&keywords=pg279q

Really don't see any indication this will be 100 Hz out of the box, aside from what PCPer said but none of that has been confirmed. However does Asus warranty cover not reaching an overclock?

Doesn't matter the panel is still a 60hz panel, since its the same LG panel. There are 100+ hz IPS but they're 27"

Ya meant just 34" IPS.

I know Samsung has a native 100 Hz VA panel in the works according to TFTcentral. Anyway, if the PG348Q was using anything newer we would have heard about it awhile ago.

Well I've got an extra 30 days to see what happens with this panel, since Amazon has a kick ass return policy.

Anyone have any suggestions here for possibly fixing Kings Quest, it has the option to select 3440x1440, but the game still plays with 4 inch bars on the sides.. I tried some scaling stuff to no avail. One or two other games did this also, curious if anyone else has run into this or if they have kings quest and could check to see how it works in 21:9
