Issues With Overclocking Acer Monitor.

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hey there! I have an Acer KG281K 4k60 monitor and would like to overclock it. When connected over HDMI and when I use the NVIDIA Control Panel to increase the hZ count my monitor goes black and says "Input Not Supported". Yesterday I switched over to DisplayPort and now when I try to overclock it just says "No Signal". How can I overclock my monitor?

You may have to lower the resolution, but I do not know, it's 4k monitor with FreeSync that retails for $300, I would not expect more from that.

Even when I overclock it by 1hZ.

Well, you can try lowering the resolution to like 1920x1080 and see what happens.
