Correct me if i'm wrong, i'm not fully versed on the tech to be honest.
It just worries me that people are willing to spend upwards of $2000 (for me in Australia) on something that could very well bust within a year or two? Or am I overestimating the potential risk of over clocking? Again a bit of a layman on overclocking.
No one knows to be honest. I've read that some people who overclocked their QNIX monitors had issues holding an overclock several months later, but I would say you can't assume the same will happen here, that was a different panel. Also, here the G-Sync module is involved in the overclock.
Native 144 Hz panels like the PG278Q have also developed issues of their own (google blurry text with the PG278Q), so it's all a risk frankly with new tech.
Anyway - if the panel actually goes bust, you can be reasonably sure Asus will replace it. I'm not sure they will cover if the OC degrades over time though.Edited by x3sphere - 1/29/16 at 8:11am
