Overclocking Benq XL2411 - 144 hz to 165/200 hz

Talk about overclocking displays at a higher refresh rate. This includes homebrew, 165Hz, QNIX, Catleap, Overlord Tempest, SEIKI displays, certain HDTVs, and other overclockable displays.

Overclocking Benq XL2411 - 144 hz to 165/200 hz

I get weird horizontal scanlines that appear to be going upwards on my monitor.
They are more visible on 200 hz compared to 165 hz.

Is it safe to keep it overclocked? What are the cons?

Scanlines depend on refresh rate. Try adjusting your refresh rate until they're least noticeable. In my case 180Hz looks nice.

I see. Will overclocking my XL2411 destroy the panel?

How long has yours survived the overclock?

If we're to believe Chief (no reason not to), the risk is very low and the panel shouldn't be harmed unless you're tinkering with blur reduction in addition to overclocked refresh rate.

Okay thank you for your input, I appreciate it!

One last question, I got to run 200 hz on fortnite on the first try but it doesn't work anymore, not on fullscreen at least (it runs on 200 hz on windowed fullscreen). It seems to be limited to 144 hz. What could be the reason behind this? Is there a fix?

Do you get out of range-black screen when trying fullscreen? If so try OOR Buster.
