    Hi,
    I am about to buy a Clevo 775TM1, after I regret selling my lil bro 751TM1.

    My question is the following as I am confused what I have found on the net/forum.

    The machine what I am bargaining on has ChiMei 120hz FHD panel. If i am correct I can replace to AUO B173HAN03.1 144hz panel.

    My questions are
    1) based on eurocom upgrade list it is compatible 144hz screen
    2) do I need also new cable? if yes what type and from where I can buy?
    3) will it be gsync compatbile? Eurocom upgrade list says no, pcspecialist purchase page says yes
    4) is it worth it? (i have the feeling without gsync it seems pointless...)

    ps: +1 question: AUO B173HAN04.0 144hz will work? gsync?

    thanks for the help in advance!

    So long as both panels are the same pin count then it can be a direct swap.

    Did you order a G-sync model to begin with? If not then you can't add it later really.

    120Hz to 144Hz in itself is mostly pointless for most people, it comes more down to what the colours/viewing angles/response is like and all that traditional monitor goodness.

    Thx for your kind reply. It was ordered with the ChiMei 120hz FHD screen and it was purchased as non gsync. However the 1080 is gsync card I guess, so it could be non gsync even the card and panel are gsnyc? Sorry about my questions, I am always confused with gsync stuff. As 120/144 I do not really care, however gsync seems good...

    At higher refresh rates I find myself not noticing a lack of G-Sync as much. You might be able to get away without having a problem.

    The card must be from an internal G-sync system for G-sync to be possible.

    Thx, however I have no clue if this system is "internal g-sync system".

    I have decided to buy the AUO ....3.1, the worst that can happen, that I will have a 144hz IPS panel instead of the ChiMei. However I have to say, that the ChiMei - even though it is TN - has pretty OK colors and contrast.
    Thx, I will update you what the outcome will be...

    Yes, the GPUs are slightly different.

    Is there a way to identify G-Sync GPUs from the non-gsync ones? like codename/deviceID/vbios version?
