I recently bought this monitor, and i'm unable to get 280hz working on it. I'm using a AMD 7900xt and using the included Display Port cable that came with the monitor. I have also went into the menu and enabled Overclock. Is my monitor just a dud and won't do 280hz, or is there something i'm mising? It does 240hz fine, windows won't show 280hz or any games.

    Use a DP1.4 to USB-C cable as it will work, DP is the only way to get it working and not HDMI. But also, good luck on getting 280Hz as mostly it won't work, be happy with 240Hz..

    As its the "overclock" you need to enable overclock on the OSD (sounds like you have allready) then create a custom Res ( ) , 280hz may work, but id start at 270ish and work up bit by bit incase it doesnt!

    I've actually found a weird issue trying to create custom resolutions. Even if i only try 240hz, it won't allow it. it gives a yellow ! and say to fix the error. So, yeah can't make one with 280z either.

    I'm having the exact same issue. When I press Overclock in the settings it stays at 240Hz. I have the XTX.
