Asus PG348q Is there a threat to lifespan of the monitor if I leave it @100Hz for 24/7?

Well as the title says is there any problem leaving the overclocking @100Hz for 24/7 or it is better to leave it @60Hz when I'm not gaming?

And if I should leave it @60Hz after gaming does it play any role if I have the overclocking ON but set the refresh rate @60Hz in Nvidia CP,

so I don't have to reboot everytime I set it back? Does it make any change?

Thanks

It's marketed for 100 Hz and rest assured that if it passed QC,it means it is up to the specifications.

Well it did pass QC and it is marketed for 100Hz you are correct but I'm debating whether the continuous o/c might decrease the lifespan.. Could be the integrated circuit start to overheat due to prolonged use and eventually fail to o/c as I have seen in some cases in the past?

I'm asking because this monitor is almost 3 years now on the market and there should be considerable feedback available to matters like this!

Anyway thanks a lot for your reply appreciated!

It does seem that some models do fail to reach the 100 Hz because apparently its running a very hefty overclock from 60 HZ to 100. But i think the worst that can happen is that it refuses to display at 100 HZ anymore.

The backlight and screen barely produce any heat so i doubt there would be any problem heat wise.

That's what I'm thinking.. Better safe than sry.. It would be a bummer if it starts one day failing to o/c @100Hz.. So I'll keep it at 60Hz while I'm not gaming..

I had an LG 27" IPS display that was rated @ 75hz and I ran it at 100hz full time since new. It did seem to run warm for a modern monitor though I saw no detriment to the lifespan. It continued working for three solid years of 10+hrs/day use before I sold it.

Thanks for the feedback ! This monitor is bought used and it has almost 3 years now already so I'd like to be more on the safe side.. It seems like it's also lottery and you never know when and if it will fail on you..

I just thought I'd better ask since as I said many units are already on the market.

If any Asus PG348Q owners provide some feedback that would be awesome
