    Why aren't there any 240Hz IPS monitors?

    The Razer Blade 15 and Asus Strix Scar III both have 240Hz IPS displays.

    Why aren't there any 240Hz IPS monitors?

    So yeah, pretty much just want to know about the lack of 240Hz IPS monitors. Like, there's a good few laptops offering IPS panels at 1080p 240hz, yet I can't find any monitors that run at 240hz and aren't TN (I think I saw a VA somewhere, but I could be wrong). Am I just being blind and there are companies that offer IPS versions of their 240Hz displays or is nobody making them? If they're not, why not? If you can fit it in a laptop, surely you can make a monitor with one? EDIT: The Razer Blade 15 offers an IPS 240Hz option and the Asus Strix Scar III has one too (I don't know if it's an option or just standard on the Asus, but it does have one). I'm also not here to argue over whether or not 240Hz actually makes a difference or not; I literally just want to know why it is we have laptops with IPS 240Hz displays, but not any full desktop monitors. Would be nice to be able to have that colour accuracy of the IPS for some light video/photo editing and the high refreshrate of 240Hz for gaming without having to buy two separate displays.

    Video Suggestion: All-In-One Sleeper PC in a CRT monitor. Yeah, not really much to explhere. Just cram a gaming PC in a CRT.
  4. Ok, so I know all the jokes about "the human eye can only see 24FPS anyway, so why bother with 144Hz" etc, but there is obviously going to be a limit on how quickly the human brain can process light coming into the eye, so there will be a limit on how fast a monitor's refreshrate will be able to go until it's physically impossible to see a difference. At what point do you think that will be? 480Hz? 1000Hz? Higher? At what point are monitor manufacturers just going to stop trying to push more frames out of a display in a single second because you wouldn't be able to see the difference anyway? Also, what about resolution? Is there going to be a point when displays just get as good as they're ever going to because they're at the limit of how much detail and smoothness a human eye can physically see?

    Q: What PSU To Get?

    Cheers, Mate. I figured it probably would be, but thought I'd double check just to be safe.

    Q: What PSU To Get?

    I'm not worried about how much it costs, I'd rather wait longer to save up and make sure it's all going to work properly than cheap out and have everything get fried one day. I just want it to be enough that I can overclock the CPU and GPU with the custom loop and still have some headroom to prevent any issues unload just to be safe. So, say for example the total usage would be 600w, I'd get a 750w. Also, how much of a difference does the 80+ certification make? Like, what's the difference between an 80+ Gold and an 80+ Platinum? It's it worth spending extra to get the better rating or does it really not make that much of a difference?

    Q: What PSU To Get?

    I'm going to be building a PC with a 3950X and a 5700 XT (both OC'd with a custom loop); what wattage should I go for with the PSU? I've tried those PSU calculators, but they all say like 1000w and that seems really high. Any advice would be appreciated!

    Hot Wheels Sleeper PC

    Ah! That's all part of the challenge! Most of his other sleeper builds (except maybe the Xbox sleeper) have been pretty standard shaped cases, so with some pretty simple gutting and modifications, he was able to put a pretty beefy build in there. To get something into the little Hot Wheels case is going to be a bit more of a challenge. Would be interesting to see how Linus and the team went about it!

    Hot Wheels Sleeper PC

    Cheers! I'll reply to that with my suggestion!

    Thread for Linus Tech Tips Video Suggestions

    Sleeper PC Challenge for Linus & Co: Make a sleeper PC out of one of these Hot Wheels PCs, BUT ya also have to find a way to put a better sensor in the mouse (something like a Logitech HERO sensor), put mechanical switches in the keyboard and Frankenstein a high quality pair of speakers into the little Hot Wheels ones. Bonus Challenge: Make a sleeper monitor too. Maybe you could just make a frame for the PG27UQ that is painted to look just like the original Hot Wheels one kinda like the monitor in this sleeper build:
