From my experience - No. Those monitors support 60 Hz for Nvidia cards and 75 Hz for AMD cards with FreeSync enabled. Overclocking past 60 Hz on Nvidia cards or past 75 Hz on AMD cards results in frame skipping, probably those monitors are intentionally limited by manufacturer to ignore overclocking and work at supported refresh rates only and always.

I will get the UC88 on friday, what are the recommended settings for gaming with freesync?
No competetive, only Witcher, Doom, GTA etc
Any tips for calibration?

I have mine set to the "photo" preset I like the colors for that one. Unfortunately you can then only change the brightness.

What I can recommend from experience - don't tough any color profiles in OSD, just get some ICC profile (I am using TFT Central's ICC profile for Dell U3415W, works great). And after that adjust contrast, brightness and gamma in OSD.

I am changing monitor once per like 1 year and I am not using any other monitors at this time, so buying hardware calibrator would be just unreasonable, especially if there are so many ICC profiles for download and the panels are so much similar that you can basically use ICC profile made for display with similar panel type and you are good to go.

Poor black levels is more of a myth than serious concern. There are dozens of much more important issues and concerns. You don't get super significant difference with VA panel vs IPS in black levels, there is noticeable difference but not game changing, while picture quality decreasement on VA vs IPS is much more significant and game changing. Especially if we consider 3440x1440 segment, where VA Samsung panel also has very serious sharpness problems.

i went from an IPS back to TN recently- immediately noticed better blacks on the TN.
