XF252Q Overclocking Software LOCKED!

Post by B1GGS » 02 Sep 2019, 22:57

When attempting to overclock my XF252Q to 241hz the monitor goes black and displays something like "unsupported input" in BIG RED letters.

I'm very disappointed at Acer for this one.

I Have a XF250Q and i can overclock it to 255hz STABLE!! (runs 257hz but blinks).

I had high hopes the XF252Q would overclock nicely and Acer let us down. EVEN MY PG258Q can overclock to 241hz.

SO maybe there is away to flash a new monitor firmware to GET RID of this soft lock.

A bit disappointed that this new TN panels aren't 300Hz considering the response times are almost cut in half from first 240hz ones, i mean its been 3 years and small increments is better than nothing.

interesting, where you saw that?

tftcentral's measurement can't agree with this:
Asus PG258Q (1st gen 240hz tn lcd panel):

Enough to warrant a 60hz bump, but its almost half and depends on the brand and overdrive cause that asus seems like one of the best first gen 240hz tn

I want 300hz too because I play QuakeWorld but that difference can't be named "the response times are almost cut in half from first 240hz ones". Never mind.
