1. Download "Custom Resolution Utility" (http://www.monitortests.com/forum/Th...on-Utility-CRU)

2. Run CRU.exe. From the drop-down list at the top, pick the one that says "ACI27A7 - ASUS MG279Q (active)" and hit "Edit." If you see multiple ACI27A7 - ASUS MG279Q options, delete the ones that don't say "(active)" next to them.

3. In the "Range limits" area at the bottom, modify the "V-rate" from 30 - 90 to 57 - 144. Make sure "Include if slot available" remains checked.

4. Click "OK" to exit the Range box, and click "OK" again to exit CRU.

5. Run restart64.exe (in the same folder as CRU).

6. Make sure Freesync is turned on within your physical monitor settings. It's under Image > Freesync > On.

7. Also check your Windows desktop refresh rate is also set to 144 Hz. Go to Display Settings > Advanced display settings > Display adapter properties > Monitor > Screen refresh rate. Hit OK and you will then notice that the monitor will display a warning label that FreeSync is only enabled between 35-90 Hz (don’t worry, this is normal).

8. Go to this Youtube video and look at how this guy has his physical monitor settings up. The refresh rate in the corner fluctuates with his FPS - this is how you know Freesync is working correctly. Fire up a game and make sure yours also fluctuates too.

Sorry to revive the thread, but can folks confirm that Nvidia's Gsync now works with the MG279Q when hacked to the 57-144hz range? Asking because when hacked, the MG279Q is still one of the best 1440p 144hz IPS gaming monitors out there despite being released back in 2015.

shadewalker4 So I recently bought a Dell S2716DG and was really unpleased with the color banding, have had asus prior and am really looking into this monitor, however how bad is like IPS glow and is having an IPS panel for games worth it? Also I have a nVidia graphics card and wouldn't be able to use Freesync, is this still a viable choice for 1440p monitor?

Astreon for 300$? that's like 40% of what we have to pay for it in Europe. Pick it up, for that kind of laughable amount of money it's worth it even if has some problems with BLB and alike.

Basically a lot of QC issues.

I don't think you can separately buy the panel but the pixio PX277 uses the same LCD panel and it will work. Your colors might be slightly off afterwards.

EDIT: Never mind they pixio stopped making them. Might try asking Asus if you can buy one but I would guess it will be less to just buy a new monitor.
