    Is a new cable necessary to upgrade from 60hz to 120hz? Assuming both are 30pin and same plug locations

    Few previous posters in this thread mention their Inspiron 15, which runs the 15.6" IPS screen, was just a direct swap. I've been chatting with another user about his upgrade, and eurocom advised him to get a different cable, which he said looked identical aside from part # written on it

    Thought maybe a reseller could chime in whether they use the same cable

    So long as the pin count and type is the same you should be good. None of the cables are special so that the pins do different functions.

    Thanks for that

    Also I left you a PM the other day, but I'm sure you get an influx of a ton, was just a bios distribution question

    Just incase anyone googles it:

    P750DM2-G upgrade to 120hz b156htn05.2 screen from 60hz IPS LP156WF6

    This is a direct upgrade, no other cable necessary, just plugs right in and boots up. I am missing GSYNC while another user mainted GSYNC, presumably due to him having premabios and me being on a stock clevo bios.

    Agreed with others, screen is awesome, colors are great

    Can someone help me find a screen replacement for my laptop Asus ROG GL502VS? I need the 120Hz Gsync version or at least the 60Hz with GSync. I've search everywhere, even ordered one from laptopscreen.com but is was only 60Hz and no GSync.
    I would need this AU OPTRONICS B156HAN04.3 or this LP156WF6-SPB6 but I can't find it with gsync and 60/120Hz

    Hey

    I'm looking to upgrade my panel on P870DM-G, currently i have LP173WF4-SPF1, it's an IPS with only 60hz and overclocking maxes out at 65hz. More than that image starts to degrade.

    I'v already ordered the 40-pin eDP 4-lane cable, that should enable to use better panels.

    The laptop is used in gaming most of the time, so 120hz and max resolution 1440p should be max. 4k is too demanding at the moment. Looking for a 120hz panel with good quality. I'v got a gtx 1060 gpu in it, maybe it can run games at 1440p ok.
    1060 is the non g-sync version, so the panel doesn't need to have it. Still works too if panel has g-sync.


    Options at the moment seem to be:

    All 17,3"
    AUO B173QTN01.4 120hz TN 2560*1440 , new version of B173QTN01.0 that has the banding issue fixed
    Chi Mei N173HHE-G32 TN 120Hz 1080p 5ms
    B173HAN01.2 120hz AHVA

    Leaning towards the 1440p B173QTN01.4, are there any new panels worth getting in the near future?

    eBay or Aliexpress is your best bet.

    How much time would it take to change the display panel of p870km1
    4k 60hz to 3k 120hz and vice-versa?
