Succesful ASUS MX279H 60 > 75hz overclock

Post by CeeJayDK » 14 Oct 2019, 10:03

I recently succesfully overclocked my Asus MX279H from 60 hz to 75hz and wanted to share.

It's a 1080P, 27" IPS panel with only HDMI input.
Excellent colors, viewing angles and a nice design.

I used Nvidias control panel to create a custom 1080P resolution.
Automatic timings worked for 74hz.
I used manual timings and set total pixels to 2000 x 1100 and that allowed me to get to 75hz without any issues.

I can push it to 76 hz too with less total pixels but then I get sync issues, and I can also lower the resolution and get 77hz.

I'm sticking with 75hz as it runs great. The blurbusters test for frameskipping showed no frameskipping was taking place.

I've tried it with the manual timing and total pixel count to ur specs and it didn't work for same monitor. It just turned off my screen and had to ctrl alt del to get back on. the 74 hz works. probably dont help it has a 13ms response time. lol.
