The thought of this thing dying is like thinking about losing a dog or something. I love it, and it loves me.
It's not like it's overheating.
I'ts built to do it.
to achieve this through the current display port version it has to be overclocked.
In a couple months time when the new version of display port releases it'll support 100hz natively.
So this monitor is essentially a bandaid solution until then to achieve max 100hz.
But don't worry... our video cards would currently struggle to do 144hz at 3.5K so we are in the sweet spot of gaming with this combination.
Like intel CPU's and their 'boost' feature 3.5ghz --> 3.9ghz
or Nvidia's boost...
I've left mine on 100hz from day one.
They only say that because high visual RPGs that have monster requirements like say the witcher... you can play that at 60hz if you're having framerate issues at 100hz.Edited by Sirstiv - 8/27/16 at 3:48am
