It doesn't matter which architecture you use in my opinion. Monitor is locked to work at 60 Hz without FreeSync and 75 Hz with FreeSync, end of story, at least for DisplayPort, I didn't try overclocking through HDMI, though it may be worth trying, I heard about displays impossible to overclock through DP but possible trough HDMI.

Well they changed the DP hardware in Pascal (it supports 1.3 now) so it'd be worth looking into

I searched around but haven't been able to find anyone that's tested the 75Hz on a 1060 or above

GPU port version won't matter, monitor has its own port and is apparently limited through firmware. But like I said I cannot speak for HDMI port as I didn't test it and now my PC is in different room to avoid GPU coil whine sounds and is connected through 3m DP through the wall, and I don't have 3m HDMI. I will test it if my next GPU in Q1 2017 will be Nvidia's, but for now it would be nice if someone else test it.

I haven't heard about dead pixels on UC88/98, only on UM88. I don't know how LG warranty works with dead pixels, but I don't think that anybody would accept warranty for 1 dead pixel, even Dell doesn't and they have the best customer support and warranty.

Also, LG has rather poor warranty, as far as I know they doesn't even have their own services and are using some incompetent external authorized ones, so exchanging would probably take ages. In this case it is better to RMA or exchange through retailer, pick some good and trusted one.

This doesn't sound good, but like I said, exchange/return your unit through retailer if anything is not right, doing it through manufacturer directly is usually horrible and pathetic process that takes ages, unless you have something like Dell's NBD warranty, then you would get your monitor exchanged in few days and you will first receive new one and then send old one day later, amazing stuff... But anyways, don't worry about dead pixels on UC88, I never heard about anyone getting any. On UM88 yes, for some reason, but not UC88/98.

Actually, Greece is in European Union so you have a right to return monitor within 14 days from purchasing without even saying why and get full refund, so you don't need to worry about warranty.

In theory you are right, in action you have to fight them in order to get something returned with no reason and to achive test you need nerves of Steel and plenty of time
Also most stores cut 10-20% of the price if you opened the box
