There are no options for refresh rate settings in the monitor osd.

Refresh rate settings are a computer responsibility, and the monitor automatically accepts the refresh rate.

In some monitors, there are indeed options to set maximum allowed refresh rates. However, these simply make a high-Hz monitor behave like a lower-Hz monitor for example. Or is an overclocking unlocker, to allow your computer to attempt to send higher Hz successfully.

But not all monitors have these settings.

The way it works is that the the computer always controls the Hz.

I do know that. I wanted to know what would happen if he set the maximum refresh rate to 180 or 144. On my old monitor I was not able to use 1080p 75 which is why i tried setting it to 60 or to 30. Windows still only showed 24,which was weird. then I set it to 60 unplugged it and somehow it works now. Ive tried 75, but I play r6 at 120 fps can't hit 150, and RL at 240,225 would be a downgrade.

Edit: 6" lcd is not good for typing.

So I guess I may have received a faulty monitor... NVIDIA has been helping me troubleshoot the issue, and after 48 hours here's their verdict.
Thank you for the update. On checking the details, the issue seems specifically on your monitor or the cable itself. The graphic or the motherboard will not limit the refresh rate.

Best Regards,

NVIDIA Customer Care.
Now I have to get Lenovo's attention and possibly return this big hunk of metal. I would have tried a different GPU if I had the possibility, but unfortunately I have no newer one and to make matters worse I have hard tubing watercooling in my rig, so it makes swapping cards a bigger project than I had planned for right now.

Providing a link to this forum can be useful — to help give them some context of what’s going on. It’s a great monitor (Vega likes it, after all) and merits a good troubleshoot by Lenovo, now that NVIDIA has confirmed.

Idea — Test a different GPU anyway if you can borrow and add a 2nd GPU temporarily to your PC. That way, you don’t need to remove your water cooling stuff.

Had this monitor for some days now
8700K, GTX 1080, Win 7, Nvidia driver 388.00. 240Hz looks and feels Nice. Blur Buster tests Ok
Upgrading monitor from 27" Asus144Hz gsync 2014 model.
Gsync dosent work anymore. As I understand this monitor have a newer gsync version and I should probaly upgrade the Nvidia driver.
If so. Which Driver version is the earliest to support this gsync version ?
