Monitor Overclock

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hey guys, so I have a Playstation 3D display I'm using as a monitor for my PC (http://us.playstation.com/ps3/accessories/sony-playstation-3d-display-ps3/index.html). It's paired with my Asus GTX 970 Strix through an HDMI 2.0 cable. The issue I'm having is that it has an advertised 240Hz refresh rate, but when hooked up to my PC it's only outputting 1080p/60Hz. I've tried overclocking the refresh rate in the Nvidia Control Panel, but to no luck. Every time I input a refresh rate higher than 60Hz, the monitor tells me that it is not supported. Am I doing something wrong or is this just false advertising?

240Hz isn't actually the refresh rate so maybe Windows if forcing a different mode than supported.

I mean when I go and set a custom resolution with anything higher than a 60hz refresh rate and click test, I got no output on the display.

HDMI cables only support a max of 60hz with audio I believe.

(Someone correct me if I am wrong)

The display only has HDMI outputs, so would it be possible to get over 60Hz with an HDMI to DVI-D cable like this one http://www.amazon.com/AmazonBasics-HDMI-DVI-Adapter-Cable/dp/B00L3KNZZ8/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1453323683&sr=8-1&keywords=hdmi+to+dvi+d

I doubt it. If anything, It will likely lower it because it converts it.

Im not even sure if the HDMI cables are limited to 60Hz, (As I said, someone correct me if I am wrong).
